    Arrow DLR 3rd Gate

    Well, well, well...look who came barging into MiceChat's door.



    Yea, that's right. For those of you who don't know me, I'm CostaFreak. Some of you may already know me from Visions Fantastic.


    Now, from time to time you will see me post Imagineering ideas of mine around here, so I minus well start off with a bang. Now, this idea of mine is for a DLR 3rd Gate, but the location won't be in the main DLR area itself. It'll be about 5 miles away on a large, empty patch of land in Seal Beach. This idea is a slight reincarnation of a lost concept.


    Get ready for...


    Port Disney


    A completely new and original park with exciting attractions themed to mythology from around the world. The park has 6 beautiful lands, Porta Roma, Olympia, Babylon, Port of Alexandria, Oceana, and Oriental Bay.


    Porta Roma- Themed to a Roman Harbor from the Roman Empire. The area is very well themed. Columns are around some buildings, and the area has a unique ancient Italian atmosphere. Palms a-line the walkway to the park entrance, giving you a sense of the park's atmosphere before you enter. across the water is Mt. Vesuvius (it acts as 3 volcanoes in one, but I'll get to that later). Pompeii is a semi area of Porta Roma. It is also the park's entery port.



    Rides:
    Port Disney Transit Boat Line- Take a journey aboard one of these boats that will take you from one land to another.

    Olympia- Themed to Ancient Greece.

The one volcano is actually 3, 1/3 Vesuvius, 1/3 Olympus, and 1/3 Mt. Fuji. The side facing Olympia is obviously, the Olympus side. There is also an attraction similar to Fortress Explorations, but Greek themed, and holds a Spaceship Earth type ride with a Horizons track layout Discoveries of Man.The area is well themed, many buildings with the fascades of ancient greek buildings, gardens, and statues all around.

    Re: DLR 3rd Gate

    This is an interesting (first) Post - to say the least... Most of us started off with a "hi, I'm new to MiceChat", however CostaFreak proclaimed himself "Imagineering God" and launched into his proposal for a 6-Land Theme Park / Third Gate, complete with the Theme of each Land (and a plate from a reference book of each Land to underscore the Theme for us), the proposed site - "in Seal Beach", names of rides, attractions, shops, and restaurants, height restrictions for each of the rides (based on...? similar rides already in Disney Parks? Have you drawn up any plans / schematics / track layouts for these rides? If so, we would love to see them!) and even a list of Entertainment to be found inside the proposed Park.

    Wow.

    I wonder what Post #2 will provide...?

    Re: DLR 3rd Gate

    This sounds soooooo soooo soooo soooo soooo cool. What I like about it is that it is very different from Tokyo Disney Sea. I think it would kinda suck if they built a replica of that park over here. But something totally different yet kinda the same, that is just awesome. I would like to see they layout of the park to if you could.

    Interesting.

    Just to point out, "Oriental" can be deemed offensive. Might want to rethink that lands name. (If you want more info, look up Oriental on wikipedia.)

    Otherwise, sounds fun!

    Interesting. I think the land you are talking about is the current Naval Weapons Station in Seal Beach...

    Not too sure if that is the best location. There maybe a couple of other areas they can consider.

    But the whole concept is phenomenal!

    Re: DLR 3rd Gate

    I like it. It's very similar to Tokyo DisneySea (I would still choose Tokyo DisneySea over this any day), though a bit more focused around ancient Asian and European ports. I also like the idea of having the Italian port at the entrance like Tokyo DisneySea.

    Re: DLR 3rd Gate

    I pitched a mythology-themed 3rd gate park on here before so it's not a new idea. My mythology themed park included an Egyptian themed area and a Norse/Viking themed area. Also an oceanic mythology themed area that could include mermaids (how about that Little Mermaid ride we all keep hearing about?) and possibly more pirates to include Davey Jones and the Kraken.

    Actually, not true;
    Just as a Point of Information;
    Please re-read the wikipedia entry;
    "It is worth remembering, though, that Oriental is not an ethnic slur to be avoided in all situations. It is most objectionable in contemporary contexts and when used as a noun, as in "the appointment of an Oriental to head the commission". In these cases Asian (or a more specific term such as Vietnamese, Korean, or Asian American, if appropriate) is the only acceptable term. But in certain historical contexts, or when its exotic connotations are integral to the topic, Oriental remains a useful term."

    'Oriental' as an adjective is not offensive, especially when it refers to a place or object (Oriental food, Oriental furniture, Oriental Bay, "the artwork was a mix of Occidental and Oriental", etc.); when Oriental is used as a noun, it is offensive, especially when it replaces the identity of an individual ("two Orientals walk into a bar..."), just as it would be for other groups ("two Blacks walk into a bar", "two Gays walk into a bar", etc.).

    That's funny because the owners and operators of Tokyo Disney Resort is the "Oriental Land Co., Ltd."

    I think referring to people as 'Oriental' may be found offensive, but shouldn't referring to an area of land.

    ...not that I want to start a whole Off-Topic discussion on this and get away from the imaginitive idea that Costa-Freak put forth. ...just over pc-ing things drives me a little... well I'm halfway there already.
