    They should have a ride called "Interstate 5". It could be a really LONG ride, really straight... it would go REALLY fast, be really hot and dusty, you could zoom by a large number of cattle in the middle of it that includes a rank smell of cow poo...and at the end there should be a Carl's Jr. with a semi-unpleasant restroom.
    Heh I like these ideas best. Hooray for Galt!

    There is quite an homage to agriculture and the central valley, though. In the often-neglected area of Bugs' Land (is it still considered Bountiful Valley?) they have profiles of notable people in agriculture, including David Simonian (of Simonian Farms) which is not in Fresno proper, but the "greater Fresno area", if you will. There should be something about raisins, though. Yay for Fresno!

    I bet Will Vinton Studios would license the California Raisins™ to Disney for cheap!

    it's been said one time already, but...

    what about sacramento? (you know us up here... the state capitol?) lol

    you could have a mock capitol (modeled after haunted mansion) like a tourguide and at the end, you get a black and white photo taken of you, maybe something modeling folsom lake..


    (i ran this idea past my husband, and he came up with these...)

    but then everything closes really early here no matter what the date is, so have everything close an hour or two before the rest of the park. lol

    You have to go to the new Submarine Lagoon to get a sense of the seashore. Paradise Pier looks like it's next to a lake, there are not enough natural features to make it look like it's by the ocean. What ever happened to the waves that used to go back and forth in the PP lagoon?

    We need a real sense of the dramatic seashore we have in California...

    And an underwater "Ariel's Mermaid Lagoon" that takes you "under the sea" would be a real Disneyesque way to celebrate the coast.

    Oh and Coheteboy's SKI MOUNTAIN is cool too. We need to embrace the ski / snow sports available here. Wasn't the Winter Olympics that was in the Sierras a really important event?

    Probably would have been, if they had ever happened there.

    They did happen. Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. And the Walt Disney company produced the opening ceremonies!

    Also, Walt Disney was an original investor in Sugar Bowl ski resort. http://www.sugarbowl.com/history

    If anyone has ever been to Blizzard Beach (not that I am advocating a water park) but there is already work done in Imagineering for a snow type of environ!

    You are totally right. The seashore represented in the Sub Lagoon looks much more like something you would see in California instead of what is represented in and around Paradise Pier.

    And the "jetty" next to the California Screamin' lauch is a complete joke. It looks more like a jetty after a category 5 hurricane than a regular jetty. And they don't have hurricanes in California.

    I think a Fresno area would be kind of funny, lol. I should know, I live there. While I doubt they would consider building a Fresno area, it might be a kinda quirky area. They could design something similar to the Land Pavilion at Epcot and add the California Rasins, lol.
