    Totoro Land

    We know Disney and Studio Ghibli have worked together to bring Miyazaki's movies to the US how would you feel if it was added to either Disneyland or DCA in the form of attractions and stuff??

    (I know this would never happen but wouldn't it be nice?)

    Well, it could be interesting in DCA since the Pixar creatures are all there... I would certainly love a Spirited Away dark ride!

    Hehe, a novel concept but don't know how popular it would be here in the states. The films don't even get that much help in merchandise here either. I think if Disney were to start selling Ghibli products in the stores and gage interest, anything can happen.


    I would love to see a totoro character posing for pictures!

    They should put in an Oswald ride before they did this.

    Alright I propose Toon Town be moved to DCA and that back area along with Fantasyland Theater be converted to GhibliLand.

    hehe... though I think there's a Ghibli Museum in japan that I should definitely check out.

    i loved spirited away but i haven't seen the other films yet. but i think a attraction based off of spirited away could be real neat.

    Wow that's smart. I would love that, Totoro is probably my favorite movie of all time. Not sure how successful it would be in the U.S. but it would be wildly popular for Tokyo.

    The Ghibli Museum just outside of Tokyo is a MAGICAL place. I like the fact that it is smallish and not a theme park. I think it would somehow lose it's charm if it was a land in DL.

    Yes, the museum is there. I had a friend that went to visit. There is a Catbus the kids can climb on and some other neat stuff. I'll try to find some pictures when I get home

    This is a great site about a visit to the Ghibli Museum.

    They don't allow photography on the inside of the building without prior permit. My photos are all outside.

    Here's a link to a few photos.
