    Re: What to Do With that Old Millionaire Building at DCA...

    I vote anything but another show. There's too many in DCA. I like the idea of a rockin rollercoaster but I'd like it more if DCA got an attraction that's fun for the whole family that is unique to DCA and does not involve pixar. But that's just me.

    Re: What to Do With that Old Millionaire Building at DCA...

    How about a Great Movie Ride. It fits in perfectly with the Backlot atmosphere and I'm sure people would ride it. Why did they close down Millionaire anyway, people watched it?

    With DCA counting on local repeat business, keeping a show fresh and new is much more difficult. It was popular in the beginning but lost momentum real fast. It was fun while it lasted but it was definitely management trying hard for a "quick fix". I can say that I got into the hot seat at least!

    And now that I think about it, DCA does NOT need more dining currently. The big sister DISNEYLAND is the one that needs more dining locations. I almost forgot about that closed eating area in the corner of DCA and why that place even closed to begin with.

    Management definitely needs to think long and hard for the FUTURE of DCA. They need to plan out the next 5 steps of the entire area before deciding what to do. If they want to open another dining area, they better have some great new attractions first or there'll be nobody to eat there!


    I'm all for a movie ride, but it needs to be good enough to keep the local visitors happy as well as the tourists.

    Well the one in Disneyworld doesn't seem to be in any danger of closing. The backlot definitely needs some new attractions although the Tower, Aladdin, and Monsters Inc are great.

    I second the SciFi Diner. Would be pretty awesome.

    They already do special events there. It hasn't freed up the Festival Arena and I don't think it will.

    Re: What to Do With that Old Millionaire Building at DCA...

    This is just what I would do:

    If and when Timon Lot is used for DCA expansion, the tram stop and east tram route near the esplanade used for outside company functions as a replacement for company functions in Festival Arena, H&D, and Millionaire. Will have both an indoor and outdoor revenue. Direct access to DCA between Monsters & H&D themed as "Production Offices Pathway".

    I think the "new Hollywod Pictures Studio" area should be renamed as a "Hollywood Frontlot Studio" mini-land. Then "Hollywood Pictures Backlot" land renamed "Hollywood Pictures Studio". The Hollywood blvd and street going to Hyperion & TOT is the mini-land "Hollywood Pictures Backlot". Which means really putting in a good themed lobby for Hyperion Theater with easier access to the seats.

    The Great Movie Ride (with Disney live-action features), perhaps for demoed H&D building for larger show area:
    http://www.micechat.com/forums/showp...2&postcount=76

    MuppetVision transform to "The Great Muppet Movie Ride". Queue is "backstage" themeing with the props and TV monitors you would see in the pre-show room. New video for the 3-monitor set. Fully using the extended queue as a regular queue to have as much space inside for the ride. Load station is themed as Muppet Theater, guests ride their seats into the stage curtain with orchestra penguins & Grumpy Old Men and continue with the planned ride through classic movie scenes including "Muppet Treasure Island", "Muppets in Outer Space", and "Muppet Wizard of Oz".

    Millionaire area demoed for larger show building for MAYBE Rocketeer/Skystormer themed quite similar to Soarin' queue. Soarin' queue redone with extreme sports feats as a retheme from desert air field to Grizzly expansion. Soarin' would be strictly a hangglider experience, no silly Patrick Warburton acting as a flight attendant for hang gliders for goodness sake.

    Another idea was having an indoor spinning mouse coaster with riders facing outward. The story is guests are "honoary camera operators" recruited by a director. Guests sit in their camera trucking system, listen for the director's direction, and capture images with their "on board camera" to capture the scenes. Of course this will be quite chaotic since you're in a spinning mouse coaster. Not really sure how to theme it.

    Those are the 2 main Millionaire building ideas, but I'm not entirely sold on it.

    Playhouse Disney transform to Brown Derby or South Seas Club (from The Rocketeer). Classy restaurant with live band and dance floor.

    I have ideas, but the above is really regarding the issue at hand and semi-chain reaction in this land

    As for Sci-Fi Diner, I would want that in a new Route 66 land.

    Close, very close.

    I think (bear with me now) they should resurrect the "Rocket To The Moon" attraction:

    http://www.yesterland.com/moonrocket.html

    The inside room is about the right size and configuration. All they would have to do is add a screen on the ceiling and a screen on the floor, (I'm sure they still have the movies) and make the seats vibrate and voila, "Rocket To The Moon"!

    Yeah, yeah, I know, wrong park, wrong area, but, well, but we could have "The Rocket To The Moon" back.

    That's what's supposed to go in there...Al Lutz said that in one of his updates.

    He also mentioned something about MuppetVision 3D going away to admitting in something else.

    A motion simulator like Star Tours. With a movie theme alot could be done.

    The simulator idea piques my interest. Maybe the ceiling and walls can be projected upon and changes themes frequently. For example one day you could be dining with oceanfront scenery, and the next they could project desert scenery. You could also change it to suit the season/holiday, or even theme the scenery to your favorite movies, such as wonderland or neverland. Pair that with scents and such that match the scenery and it has the makings for a very cool dining experience. Circlevision on steroids I guess :P

    How about a prop display like they have at mgm? It's simple, functions as an attraction, and promotes new movies. What more could disney want?

    Take the design ideas of the Crush coaster from Paris and theme it to something that isn't Pixar-based. Maybe Herbie, maybe an ABC property or something.
