I am excited about the Peoplemover finally returning in a form to Tomorrowland. Before Disney gets too far in the project, I would like to post my ideas for making its comeback successful.
1) It has to have a great name. Since the vehicles will be totally different, I think a new name would be better than keeping the old "peoplemover" name. My suggestion is Podcoaster, a combination of the word "pod" and "coaster" from "roller-coaster." A cutting-edge name is essential to drawing guests. If there is a better suggestion, I would love to see the ideas, but that is mine.
2) I think that the ride needs several layers of fun. I suggested a swivel control for guests to swing the pod in various directions. It would allow different views as you travel without having to move inside the pod. That would add more action to the ride itself without changing its speed or length.
3) I believe that interactive games should be installed in the pod. These games could be played on the trip around TL or not. I can see several games put in but particularly a Disney trivia game would be fun. It could have various levels, kid's, intermediate, and advanced. Then random questions could be asked. The score could be told to the guest at the end of the trip. An action game could also be included also. This would allow the kids to have something to do on the trip if the adults just want to relax and ride.
4) It has been suggested here on the boards that there should be multiple stations so that this could be a real transportation system. I like that idea. I would love an option to get off near Fantasyland or near Main Street. I think it could be an option. The track could have a side spur setup so the pod stopping could leave the main track and then rejoin it after stopping. This would add practicality as well as a fun element.
Well, those are my ideas. What are your ideas for making the Peoplemover's return a successful one? Would you keep the old name, "Peoplemover" or do you have another better one? How can you make the old Peoplemover better in its come back?
