Thank you for the compliment. (that was a compliment wasn't it??)Originally Posted by Cousin Orville
I've started to think that after 50 years, Disneyland may be close to completion. There is little undeveloped land left. I'm rather inclined to hope it stays undeveloped, particularly the Big Thunder Ranch area. The open feel enhances the theme of frontier. So many of the rides and attractions have become icons of Americana it will be very difficult if not impossible to remove them for replacement. Can you even conceive of the day when POTC or IASW would be razed for a new E-ticket? (OK... some goof almost did that with most of Tomorrowland. Fortunately, enough is left to repair the vandalism.) Disneyland is a park that almost reaches capacity on a daily basis. If it was my money, I'd pretty much stick with fixing the broken stuff and keeping the place pretty and clean. If you're catching all the fish your boat can hold, you don't need better bait. But I said, "...close to completion." There are still a few scattered areas that could use help. Bear/Critter Country that started this thread is probably a good place to start. Tomorrowland is on the rise so there are a lot of possibilities there still. Main St, NOS, Frontierland, Fantasyland will never change. Adventureland is probably set in stone too... with the possible exception of the Tahitian Terrace area. (I don't much like Toontown, so I don't care.) Frankly, if I was calling the shots, I'd pretty much just keep DL clean and throw the money into DCA. That is a park that needs imagination and development the most.
