    Hollywood Pictures Backlot: A Studio on the Move

    Hollywood Pictures Backlot has changed time and time again over it's last four and a half years. It is much like the Tomorrowland of Disneyland.

    Hyperion Theater: Disney's Steps in Time--Power of Blast--Disney's Aladdin

    Disney Animation: Screening Room: Back to Neverland--One Man's Dream-- Turtle Talk

    ABC Soap Opera Bistro--Playhouse Disney Live On Stage

    Superstar Limo--Monsters INC. Mike and Sully to the Rescue

    Hollywood Backlot Stage: Lights, Camera, Chaos!--Goofy's Beach Party Bash--D.U.H. Improvisational Comedy

    The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror opened in 2004 and Who Wants to be a Millionaire closed in 2004.

    It seems that Jim Henson's Muppet-Vision 3D is the only attraction that has not been touched sinced opening day.

    What new attractions do you think should be added to the Hollywood Pictures Backlot and which attractions should be the ones to be replaced to make way for them?

    A Rockin' Roller coaster would be nice. You could tie in a California theme(that is so desperatley needed) very easily. It would like DCA's Space Mountain seeing that it's inside and all. Hmmmm...I can't think of many other things though....

    More Muppets is always good, especially The Great Muppet Movie Ride.

    I would rather have the great Disney movie ride. It could go through all the great Disney animated movies.

    Good analogy, except one thing.

    In the 80's Tomorrowland IMO was the best land at Disneyland. HPB has never been the best land at DCA, but it does have the most potential IMO.

    As much as I adore the muppets, I think that something better could, nay, should be there in its place. Don't get me wrong, it would suck to have that great show removed ("What kind of foolishness would you like to see?"). No other experience at DCA has so much theming packed into so small an area. However, my love for Disneyland's retarded younger sibling exceeds my desire to keep an underloved attraction in its home.

    Well, all the space that's left is The Hollywood & Dine along with the water tower and coca cola set drive-in right beside it and the Who Wants to be a Millioaire stage is not being used as well. The Hollywood Backlot stage is just a big waste of space and should be removed for more walk around space in HPB. I would doubt that there is enough space to put in a Rock n' Roller Coaster attraction.

    Please, no more clones. And no more cheapthrill rides. So, really, especially no cloned cheapthrill rides. Just say No to RnRC.

    Here's a concept I've been playing around with:
    http://www.micechat.com/showthread.p...4858#post84858

    In short, since this is Disney's California Adventure, I think it'd be great to turn HPB into a fantasy version of Disney Studios, c. 1955. The Animation building would get a cosmetic makeover, the Stage would just come out, and the area would feature Disney animated features and shorts, nature documentaries, live-action features, and television of the period. A "studio gate" would separate the Back Lot from Hollywoodland and the ToT area. With a clever facade, the current Hyperion can be themed to the backlot, but a new indoor queue would be themed to, say, the El Capitan, or keeping the outdoor queue premise, base it on the forecourt of the Egyptian.

    now I would say that if they could the Great Movie ride would be terrific (perhaps once the tram unload for Timon has no purpose they can build the showbuilding there it's quite a large area) I'd say to update the Movie ride with more classical films and replacing unpopular scenes (and we need Star Wars how a bout a lightsaber dual between Vader and Luke or Vader going "Luke I AM your father" )

    Yeah, but if RRC was in LA wouldn't it then be a slow moving dark ride???

    They could still expand HPB. It could be partly expanded into Timon, with a small area going behind bugs and into the Parking lot using a Sunset Strip type of facade, with some restaurants and stages, etc. Maybe a Backlot of the Backlot.

    Not ALL of Timon mind you, but a quarter of it to add RRC and a few other things. I'm still hoping for an expansion on the wharf theme with a new E-ticket and also a Silicon Valley themed area.

    the backlot shouldn't expand out past ToT that just wouldn't make any since (so you leave the backlot see a real hotel and then go back to more backlot?)

    backlot should stay were it is


    and I'm guessing your referncing the insane traffic in LA? RnRC is about a ride through LA anyways I believe (racing to a concert?)

    so yeah if you read my LA expansion (though you probably already have) you'll get the drift of what I'm talking about


    I'd like to have a western ghosttown beyond a san deigo type expansion of the warf perhaps

    but that's just me
