I was cruising the Disneyland.com web site today and was horrified by what I had found on the main "Attractions" Page. No pictures! No maps"! And probably the most jack'd up attempt at categorizing the attractions I have ever seen. Some of them are even laughable. Like Mark Twain and Columbia being listed as a "Getting Around" attraction. They dont go anywhere. You start and stop at the same place. What ever happened to categorizing by land? Fantasy, Frontier, Tomorrow, etc and showing a more enticing map to go with it. Everyone knows the lands. Everyone knows the iconic layout of the park. I sort of see a bizarre attempt to categorize the attractions by "type" but to be honest it is very confusing.
For instance, why is Roger Rabbit and mad Tea Party considered an "Amusement", Mr. Toad a "Family Adventure" and Peter Pan "fun for little ones"?
Disney had it right the first time:
Land / Attraction / Type
Tomorrow / Space Mountain / Thrill
Adventure Land / Tiki Room / Family
And to top it off: A LINK LIST!??? This is Disney for crying out load! DOESN'T presentation mean anything anymore!??
Thats what set Walt apart in the first place. DETAIL, Fantastic visuals, This Attractions page is supposed to get me excited about the attractions?
(Climbing off of soap box now)
Sorry folks, this is a sore spot for me since I am a web site and eCommerce consultant.
