Okay. Here are many of my own ideas to improve the whole Disneyland resort. While it is definately most improved from the Cynthia Harrissssssss days, there are still a few bugs to work out. So, pretend that I'm the head of Disney theme park developement working with an unlimited budget, and here's what I'd do to the Disneyland resort. Pretend this will all happen after the 50th celebration. I will also have some neat drawings and concept art along the way. Well, once I learn to post pics of corse. But I'll try. Let's start with the bus stops:
Let's face it, the bus stop station is UGLY. First, organize an efficent Disney bus transportation unit that travels to the Disneyland resorts and the good neighbor resorts. I stayed at a good neighbor resort once, and it was impossible to find out where the busses would pick you up at, so, add better bus stops, and have official Disney busses take you to and from the parks and hotels. The bus station, will have covered canopies over the waiting areas themed to the victorian main street look. The ugly cones and wires? GONE!
Enchanted Fountain: This will be located in the center of the plaza between DCA and DL. There will be golden statues of disney characters located all around the fountain with mickey directing the water at the top in Scorcerer's Aprentice attire. Water cannons, leape frog fountains, and waterfalls come to life every fifteen minuites syncronized to music for a spectacular show. At night, its even more spectacular with colorful lights, and fiber optics.
Disneyland parking garage Since its in such bad condition, the Disneyland parking garage will be destroyed and rebuilt. It will be far less ugly with disney character designs in the architecture and alot more color. The monorail will be extended to have a station here. The tram will still operate though.
Now, on to the Magic Kingdom of Disneyland!
The Disneyland railroad: All the trains will be changed so that they all will face forward. Alot of the track will have alot more themeing around it. In Adventureland, that dumb Panther manakin will be replaced by realistic AA animals. Before entering the POTC ride building tunnel, the outside will be themed more to an ancient temple and achialogist ( sp? ) dig sight with artifacts and more. The grand canyon diorama will be moved to the area behind big thunder ranch because it would make a good transition from frontierland. It will mostly be the same, except maybe longer, and all the animals will be AAs. The the primevil world scenes will be longer because of the absence of the grand canyon. There will be show scenes on both sides of the track will bigger and better looking animatronics. The music will be alot more different from that dated sounding score to something more dramatic.
I'm gonna stop here for now and continue tomorrow. Its late, and my butt hurts. Sure, some of these ideas aren't that great sounding, but these are just the beginning, there are many more fantastic ideas on the horizon, so stay tuned.
