    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    I had a thought long ago for a Jungle Book dark ride. Basically omnimovers themed to a pack of elephants marching through the jungle. You past scenes with Jungle Book friends and foes.

    I think a Jungle Book river adventure dark ride similar to Sinbad in tokyo would be pretty cool. Maybe in Animal Kingdom or something. Finale would be shere kahn on fire or something.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    I have another pitch and this would be a groaner to some of yas because it's another mountain... but here it is!

    FIRE MOUNTAIN!
    I LOVE THE IDEA!

    i think that if the "mountain" title was dropped, and the story was tinkered with a bit, it could make some heads turn.

    i do love the idea of having it through an "extinct" volcano...but lets add to it...how about a volcano, as it appears from the outside, but once inside, its actually a underwater cavern, that has been rediscovered after all these years.

    you could have half of the ride building above ground, and have the rest below. the ride itself could be traveling through cavers of different sizes and depths, flying past walls of crystal, huge columns of stalagtites and stelagmites, over the depthless water of the bottom, through caves blacker than night and all climaxing to the resolution of the back story...the reason the explorers dissappeared in the first expedition.

    its definatley a fusion of quite a few existing attractions...a little EVEREST, Matterhorn, Space, INDY! i wonder if this could be one of those MEGA attractions they could squeeze behind the 3rd gate?

    keep the ideas coming...this is great!

    Great visuals! I'd be down with that! But depending on where this ride is put in, I'd try to narrow the visuals down a bit. So like... if it were to put into disneyland, ax the crystals as to not compete with the Matterhorn etc.

    Sorry. Most people here will probably not reply if they didn't feel a connection. I mean... i thought some of my posts would get more feedback but oh well... they didn't.

    Since you only have 4 posts, maybe you should post more and offer more details to your ideas. Your post of scrapping Toon Town and Big Thunder Ranch doesn't offer us any *new* ideas of new attractions, which is what this thread is suggesting.

    So stick around... people will eventually respond.

    (and this is also a thread that probably doesn't get a lot of visits because it's all blue sky babble for us armchair imagineers)

    Well... it's hard for me to put my ideas into a tangible form for the online world. I can explain it really great in person. Also, I'm not a very good artist. I draw glorified stick people. It'll take time for me to type it all out, but I can get them up here. I'm trying to work out some graphics to give a visual aspect to it. However, again, I'm not much of an artist. If I could get some help, it could be done (not necessarily you, but, if you're willing and even a decent artist...)

    I understand as I'm not the artist I am in my mind.

    Earlier in this thread I drew a poor rendering of Fire Mountain. If you think I have what it takes to flesh out some of your ideas, feel free to PM them to me and I'll try to do them justice.

    And honestly, none of us will mind if your illustrations are stick figures.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    dland_lover, I have to agree with Coheteboy. Mostly your posts only point issues that have already been discussed long ago. I'm sure with more time and posts and in the near future readers will post valid opinions. Perhaps there hasn't been much response is because there's nothing really to say...

    Haha. That would kind of be an odd image for tourists to see

    A river adventure in a log? Anyways, this would seem too similar to Jungle Cruise I would think. And I figured there hasn't actually been a "jungle trek" on a pack of elephants through a jungle before, so thought that may be interesting. Anyways, I see where you're getting at.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    All of the rides would be expanded and made multi-level. Snow White and the new Sleeping Beauty ride would be in the first area- the Grand Courtyard, along with the carrousel. In the castle gardens in back would be dumbo and casey jr. Where Alice is now, Pinocchio would go. The Fantasyland Theater will be replaced with "London", a more fantasy-like representation of the current FtsyLand theme. Here would be the train station, Peter Pan and Mr. Toad. Under the train through the 'rabbit hole' takes you to "Wonderland". Alice would be in the general location of Roger Rabbit, but further to the left, allowing for the Queen's Royal Gardens/Croquet Lawn- open to guests, to the right. The tea cups will be in the approx. center, with either a "Mickey Through the Looking Glass" ride (based off the classic cartoon), or a Hedge Maze like what is currently at Disneyland Paris, to the far left.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    Hmm... care to provide reasons why you'd want Disneyland to do this? That's a really costly update just to move things around. Maybe you can try and design something where only toon town would be replaced (just to be more practical).

    and also, the area where you laid out Mr. toad, Peter Pan, etc... that's all backstage area and maintenance for Storybook canal, etc. So you can find something to replace the stage, but nothing behind that point would fit.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    Hello everyone,

    I think some of dland_lover's ideas are great!

    Making "Wonderland"a separate area is a very unique idea, and bringing a large "Hedge Maze" to Disneyland I'm sure would greatly enhance the North side of the park. Fantasyland could definately use more space by making "Wonderland" another small land to explore.

    Although, I think tearing down Toontown is unnecessary.

    The Fantasyland Theater is an eyesore. The land just west of the theater is the festival area of Big Thunder Ranch, which is wasted space right now. Together, the total area could at least fit the entire New Orleans Square area (including both of the show buildings for pirates). These two spaces could incorporate some of your ideas nicely.

    The backstage service area behind Storybookland is basicaly two service roads. The one which runs north/south can remain and a "bridge" could span it (see Tokyo Disney Sea's design). The road that runs east/west remains unchanged.

    P.S.

    Tearing out so many original attractions is not such a hot idea either.

    Re: Be The Imagineer: Design The Ride

    I just wanted to let you guys know why I'm motivated about my plan. I realize what we have was done by Walt and it really has not changed, except with the addition of Pinocchio. Some people like it that way- they don't like change. Well, me neither. But, what we have... was great for 1955. Things really need to be brought up to speed and in line with current technologies. All I'm envisioning is a relocation and expansion of the rides, to make them even better than they are now. I'm also proposing making the theme of the land more fantasy-like, taking us farther away from our real lives. I just wanted to let you guys know what my motivations were and maybe you guys will see that what we need is not just a new ride, but a new and updated experience. I mean no harm to Disneyland. As a matter of fact, I don't know, personally (and neither do my friends and family), of anyone tat loves Disneyland more. I even love "it's a small world" I hope I offended no one and that maybe we can get some serious collaboration going to push the park even further into imagination.

    There's too many people in the world who do not share the level of Walt's imagination, as well as his drive, or the courage to do something truly drastic that will end up being so awesome (take, hmm... Disneyland as an example). Yes, it would be drastic and costly. Yes, people would miss the originals. But I believe, that after experiencing what today's technologies can really do- not just take you through the story, but transport you to another world, people would end up liking the new experience better. I personally feel not enough chances are being taken by many, esp. the execs. at Disney, and although they are fun, our parks have suffered in many, smaller ways. Tomorrowland isn't the only land that needs to be updated (and yes, I know they did a major remodel of FstyL back in the 80's, changing it from the original look). Also, I really feel Toontown is a waste of space. They really dropped the ball with it. And to truly fix it, they would need to bulldoze it and start over. Just my two cents; please take with a spoonful of sugar

    Don't worry about offending anyone there... we're just here to share our opinions about Dland and hehe.. imagineering of all things doesn't really upset people because it's only our ideas. They either agree or disagree.

    As for changing up all of Fantasyland, I just don't think it's a good enough end result to do that. The rides are small and cramped together.. but it works! That's the charm of it. And the architecture is wonderful.

    You have a lot of ideas there and that's great... only that it's mostly rearranging. Tell us more about Wonderland. Tell us exactly what you'd put there if you could take Toon Town out. I guess relocating Mad Tea Cups and Alice in Wonderland would be part of the agenda huh?

    I don't agree with it but it's your vision so give us more!
