I wonder if there's enough room in that area to put in a dark ride based on Robin Hood. I haven't been to Disneyland since 1994, but I remember that it was a wooded area. It would be neat to have a Robin Hood ride like Alice where the ride is outside and indoor.
Since the area is small, it is perfect for bringing back Skull Rock. With new, beautiful rockwork, flowing water, eerie green lights in the eyes, and cool blue lights that shine on the various mini-pools of water. Cut into the hill a little and create some clever rockwork seating so guests can watch, relax, and enjoy the floating mist of the falls. Place the stromboli wagon goods into the shop, ditch the wagon and start the latte stand. Skull Rockpresentedby Starbucks.
I think it's possible to do something up there. All the previous ideas I haved thought of before, but going through this thread made me rethink:
1) How about a meet n greet/storytelling cottage with snacks and small beverage (like coffee and tea ) for purchase. I'm sure the hillside can be configured to make it wheelchair accessible. The "Aladdin & Jasmine" storytelling can move here. Then the Oasis in Adventureland can return as a restaurant.
I think it really is a nice view of Fantasyland from up here. But I don't think you can see much fireworks from here. On occasion, a wedding chalet is definately a nice idea.
I know one suggestion was to have Santa's Cottage redressed here for Santa Meet n greets, but the Reindeer Roundup seems to be successful.
2) Now the above seems like a logical and realistic solution. Someone else proposed a Gummi Bear transportation system from Critter Country to Fantasyland (Skyway station probably). Either a EPCOT's HORIZON, Peoplemover, or EPCOT'S LIVING WITH THE SEAS transportation style. Show scenes behind Rivers of America could possibly be fiber-optic mushrooms and diamonds...
