Use these extra areas for expanded show or ride elements, thus creating the truly original and ambitious e-ticket ride that Tomorrowland desperately needs. Either a slow Peoplemover-like ride or faster Test Track type ride could fit these specs. I know none of this is cost-effective, but I guess I'm a bit of a dreamer.
    Correct me if I am wrong here, but I believe the 2nd floor of the Starcade is too be used after Space Mountain rehab in some way.

    It wasn't sealed up, but the track was completely removed and the entire area converted into a backstage hallway. Either rerouting the track or ripping out a brand new backstage area to restore the track through the Buzz building would be rather costly, and in the case of the latter, mind-bogglingly stupid (though not unprecedented).

    Not preserving the old Peoplemover "right of way" thru the Buzz show building is what I would call "mind-bogglingly stupid". Removing the track probably would not hurt anything since the track may need to change anyway, but the space itself shoud have been preserved.

    Agreed... Another consideration: maybe it needs to have a hatch that closes you in, so nobody spits or throws anything or tries to jump out. Isn't that why the skybuckets skyway ski lift ride went away? I like a smooth, fast egg shaped peoplemover like in the photograph posted. Kind of like the pneumatic ride in the POLAR EXPRESS maybe?

    I say either use the track or remove it. If they can't seem to find a way to either resurrect the peoplemover or retrofit it to accomodate a new ride, then take the bloody thing out! Then, at least those of us who have fond memories of riding it won't have to get all bummed when we look at that desolate track!

    They cant remove it now, its been there for too long. All of Tomorrowland would look even worse. That track has potential. Plus what would they do with the "observatron"? It would look weird just sitting there by itself. Wait, it already looks weird. Well I think they out to retro-fit the track and bring back the rocket rods so they can work with Banked Curves, which is what killed the last attempt. Then kill the whole "buzz lightyears anal adventures" thing after the 50th and restore a better queue WITH an improved Circle-Vision

    Oh man, not the Observatron. One more piece of junk I'd like to see them simply remove. Does it even do anything anymore? Granted, I don't spend a lot of time in Tomorrowland these days, but I've not seen it active in a loooong time. It was pretty lame when it worked. Now, it just makes me shudder!

    Alright, so this idea is (slightly) from the Tomorrowland E-Ticket Idea:MIssion to Halo, but its different

    This ride will take place on the peoplemover track, and riders would ride warthogs thru all of the show buildings as usuall, but in the TRON tunnel, there could be a HALO tunnel of some sort.

    I dont really think this idea is as good as the E-Ticket: Mission to Halo, but atleast its something on those tracks other then dust

    I think the problem is that the track is so worn and decrepid that they couldn't put a ride back on it for safety issues, even if they wanted to. I'm sure they would have to put some major construction (and major buckaroos) into it do anything unfortunately. Not something they have on their "to-do" list I bet.

    Or maybe, you get in the warthog to escape the foreunner city (tomorrowland) and to drive thru the (blowing up) pillar of autumn and have an expanded area where you do that, get off the warthog as it goes back to the station, and you get on the flight simulater, take off halo, blows up, light speed back to earth. This way it would have a "story" to it, something many Disney rides dont have anymore. And you would still see Tomorrowland

    THis of course, would happen if/when tomorrowland gets its "revitalization". Hopefully they could make it somewhat like how it was before. Tomorrowland could be the forerunner city, and you had to escape from it. I'm not sure how you could explain the star tours area, but it could probably be done

    Wow... Halo Ideas. Yeah, that's weird. I don't know about you, but unless I am shredding flood and covenant alike with my Shotgun + Sword combo, I'll pass.

    About the structural cracks: bad stuff, they are. When a freeway overpass was completed near my house, they found it to have several structural cracks, and it stayed closed for a rebuild. THAT WAS SIX YEARS AGO!!! Obviously the chance of Peoplemovers coming back within this decade are slim to nil. Oh well. I miss that thing, even if it did cause me to lose my mickey ears when I was five. But I must stay focused: up with the Peoplemovers!!

    that TTA ride could be a good idea now we just have to think were will the entrance since buzz lightyear astro blasters queue is at the former rocket rods queue maybe the can have the queue for it where the Starjets was and the could use the elevator or was that stairs not to sure
