    The only thing I want from Tomorrowland is for them to figure out a way to handle the crowds and queue for Finding Nemo next year so that I can still get to Space Mountain and the Matterhorn.

    It'll be interesting to see how it affects the Monorail as well.

    At this point it would cost millions to bring back either ride. They might as well go with a high speed thrill ride - because we all know that will be a bigger draw and bigger crowd pleaser than the slow moving PeopleMover.

    Not necessarily. I think it’s very limited thinking to believe that a new attraction has to be molded to fit that particular track. They could also tear it down completely and focus their attention on new attractions. They could tear out the PeopleMover tracks and reroute the Monorail and build something big on the current site of the Motorboat Cruise/Autopia. If they decide to take out Star Tours and build something else – they could utilize the room of the old PM storage space and create a HUGE attraction in there. Why limit the possibilities to only the track?

    Personally I’d rather see the money go somewhere else – even if that means the track has to stay for years and years empty. It’s obviously not hurting their image, and TL is the busiest it has been in years.

    This isn’t true. Tomorrowland was suffering from big problems with theme and story and attendance for years before the refurbishment of 1998. As early as the 1980s, Imagineers were discussing the “Tomorrowland Problem” the same way we discuss the DCA problem today. The land was a mess – some rides were true to Walt Disney’s original intention – some were completely fantasy based – and some weren’t related to the future at all – and almost all of them were old, tired, and boring. Disney knew there was a problem here and they came up with several plans to completely change the area – some of which were even created by Eisner himself.

    Tomorrowland was very much broken in all that time. The refurbishment of 1998 was a disaster in that it failed to create any memorable and lasting attractions – but it succeeded in giving the land a new direction and new philosophy. Today Tomorrowland is stronger than it has been in a long time.

    Let me just be blunt here: if you really think Tomorrowland is broken - just stay out of that area. Let Disney know that you think the rides in that area are uninteresting and boring by staying out of that area and clogging the walkways on the Westside – much like what happened in the early 1990s. That will encourage change – and also hopefully allow me to find a seat at Redd Rockets – an almost impossible task today due to the success of this land in its present form.

    Turn Innoventions into a convention center and host every well known techonology event show every month thus showing the latest and new technolgies to the audience while making money.

    Wasn't trying to change your mind, hence the "in my opinion" in the beginning of my post. People also love the Terminator 3-D show, but I'm still bored by it because it boils down to watching a movie for most of the attraction. I know a movie cannot physically touch me, but when they make the movie look real action(HISTA and TTBAB) it actually interests me because it is entirely plausible that I would be interacting with the things around me. That's just me, I know others do like to sit down and passively watch something and good for them, I just like to be physically involved.

    Re: Tomorrow(land) Never Comes...

    I think Innoventions is very possible... they just need to innovate something. It's not about trying to predict what will be here in 30 years... it's about taking what we have today and what we know to be coming in the next few years and then running wild and crazy with it 30 years into the future. What COULD happen in 30 years. Then faking it so that we can "experience" it now. And as things change... every so often, push the envelope back even more. That's what Innoventions was supposed to be.

    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
