    Angry Critter Country Frustration...

    Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why does it have to dead end?

    When I was little I always got it confused with Fronteirland and thought by going to the end it would somehow connect with Fantasyland.

    Walking down to Winnie the Pooh, you always see tourists walking back up the hill with a bewildered look on their faces like, "I thought that went through to somewhere." I call it the walk of shame.

    They should definitely connect Critter Country to Fonteirland via a giant pirate-themed bridge.

    Or maybe a pirate-themed bridge with a Pirate Island in the middle?

    Hmmm. No offence. But I hope neither of those ideas EVER come to be. I like it the way it is.

    They were ALL dead-end lands, originally. The Hub was the place everyone had to go back to in order to move to another land. This allowed the hub to be a "scene transition" and is why the entrances off the hub are better themed than the entrances from other lands.
    Granted, with park attendance these days, the flowing nature of Disneyland is more helpful.
    It's now the wagon wheel, but instead of having to go the the hub to move around, now you can go to the wheel itself!

    It would have to be a pretty tall bridge for the Columbia and Mark Twain to get under it.

    Could you imagine having to walk over that? Id be ready to go home after going across one way.

    Re: Critter Country Frustration...

    Part of the problem is that nearly 1/2 of the best attractions at Disneyland reside on this single spoke of the proverbial wagon wheel. Ie; Adventureland(Jungle Cruise, Indy), NOS(Pirates, Mansion),Critter Country(Splash)...all lie on the same path/spoke.

    What really needs to be done is both Frontierland and Tomorrowland need more/better attractions to ballance things out a bit.

    it has to dead end, otherwise there is no reason to go back to the hub.

    and if you think that 'look' is bad now, try back in january when splash goes down, canoes are only on weekends, and the only thing in Critter Country is Winnie the Pooh.

    that look will be much worse then

    Yeah, it really stinks to get back there and find splash not running.

    Couldn't have put it better myself. Was going to say that and then read your excellent post.

    And it's only confusing for those people who go wandering around without once looking at the map they are handed. I love how isolated it is. Especially at night. Riding an empty Splash, then just grabbing a snack from the shop and sitting on the benches, watching the lights and shadows in the trees. The sounds and smells. Cool air. It's very relaxing and quite pleasant.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Now that's an idea! When I'm walking from Frontierland over to NOS I just see the swarm of people milling around and I get tense! There surely has to be a good balance of rides to alleviate some of the crowds in the NOS CC area.

    You know, walking is a healthy thing to do...there's also a map that you're given when you enter the park...
