    Is that the smell you get at DCA's entrance?

    Under construction. Here's the layout plan though:


    Look familiar?

    IS THERE GOING TO BE A LOOP? Ha!

    Hey it's very nice, but unfortunately I am too young to remember that ride, and your layout was the first time I ever saw how MTTNW was laid out so that was cool.

    I'd love to see your model train in person. PM me an Evite sometime! I'll help you work on it.

    I wonder why it's called "Tri-Circle-D" at WDW but at DLR it's just "Circle-D."

    It is physically possible to expand Disneyland. But it isn't practical simply because the amount of people you would have coming through would not be worth further expansion. DL is sort of maxed out on crowds right now.

    If there ever came a time to expand DL park, which clearly won't be for several decades, if ever, they certainly could move a lot of those facilities off site. Yes they would incur a higher operating expense by trucking in horses and ride vehicles around every day, but it could be done.

    I can assure you that long ago there was in fact an expansion plan for the park, that included an expansion of New Orleans Square into the space behind the Mansion and Pirates showbuildings.

    And of course expansion into the pony farm and behind Main Street and behind Frontierland. But the truth is none of these plans ever came to be, because the park just doesn't need to expand.

    Re: How far can you expand the Disneyland Resort

    Why expand when there's dead space in the park? The Starcade, motor boat lagoon, Festival of Fools arena, and the other half of Tom Sawyer Island/Rivers of America are all prime places to work on.

    There are also very unpopular attractions such as Innoventions and HISTA that can be removed to free up more space. Is the Pizza Port really necessary? There used to be an attraction there you know...

    Imagine an Epcot-like dark ride in the Innoventions building. Imagine an Alien Encounter-like attraction in the Starcade or Pizza Port buildings. Discovery Bay could finally be realized at the Rivers of America. I would love to see a new show performed as the Festival of Fool's arena. Where did they hold private parties before the arena?

    The possibilities are endless!

    I totally disagree with that assessment.

    There are several market segments that Disney has been ignoring, and the existing segments that comprise the bulk of guests are growing at fairly high rates. So, more Indy-caliber attractions can lead to permanent increases in attendance while these capital improvements also add capacity and increase the frequency of visits and the length of stays.

    Furthermore, pay-per-play attractions, or attractions with pay-per-play options, can potentially increase overall guest spending.
