    Additions to Every Land

    If you had the authority to add ONE item (attraction, eatery, shop, entertainment) to each land at Disneyland, what would you choose? Would they be items brought back from mothballs (subs, skyway...) or something of your own creation?

    For each land at DL, tell us what you'd like to add with a description of how it would fit with the land's theming and how it would better the experience of guests in that land.

    ick skyway I hope they burn those buildings down someday


    Anywho I think I would change the Tarzan treehouse in adventureland

    simply rename it Adventureland treehouse, ditch the plastic Tarzan characters inside it and add back in the elaborate water system (but leave some of the interactive tarzan stuff there),

    I would then add a real couger (or whatever I'm typing to fast to spell correctly) to were the plastic one was and have it sleeping but every so often it opens it's eyes and roars or yawns a bit at the tourists that walk past ,

    then add a few tikiroom esque parrats to the tree that sometimes start humming music or spouting lines from nearby attractions. Youknow sometimes starting to sing "in the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room" or whilsting Indiana Jones or a whole new world, perhaps one might even sometimes shout out "dead men tell no tales"

    I would leave the basecamp alone so that they could still have tarzan meet and greet stuff down there and so that they could still have all that interactive tarzan crud at the bottum

    So basicaly I'd mix the two treehouse's together and come out with something that's better

    Dont have time to do every land right now so I will do one, and come back to it later.

    I would bring back a subs ride. But not the campy 50's version, something all new based on the same idea, where we explore the depths of the ocean and see people actually living in buildings on the ocean floor. We see how they get most of their consumables from the ocean itself the way Jules Verne's capatin Nemo did, but as a reality in the future. Involve actual scientists in the project, and ask them what they think is possible to be in store for life on the ocean in the future. Make far more realistic AA's that are enclosed in their own little domes in a such a way that you cant tell they are, so they dont get actually wet, and can move more freely and are easier to repair. Add a bit of a walled backdrop that blends in along the tracks, and use special projectors to project on the backside of them schools of fish and other background type swimming/moving things. Make the ride as futuristic and as real as possible. As part of the project, on the fantasyland side of the lagoon have a sunken ship restaurant themed to the little mermaid. As guests dined they could look out the portholes and see ariel and her sisters swim by. You could even make a very small short dark ride on little mermaid that winds in and out of the restaurant so it basically occupies the same space. That way you have the kinetic energy of themed little boats going past like blue bayou, and also the mini "shows" of mermaids outside the portholes.

    This would essentually give you 3 attractions in one space, with the ship restaurant acting as a buffer between fantasyland and tomorrowland.

    Tigertail, I love love LOVE that idea! The coziness of DL is that so much is crammed into one space, integrating things into each other that have similar themes and thus utilizing all resources. Plus I have a soft spot for Ariel and her friends...can you tell?

    Swagdaddy, I pretty much agree with each thing you said, especially the Country Bears, Swiss Family Treehouse and Mardi Gras ideas. The streets of NOS would be so perfect for that kind of "show" and they could run short celebrations a couple times a day, similar to how they are now doing celebrations on Main Street.

    Keep 'em comin' guys!

    Fabulous Idea!

    As far as toontown is concerned, they really need a water ride! If any of you have been to Islands of Adventure in Orlando, then you know how successful zanny, cartoon-themed water attractions are. And in a place that is nearly all cement and reaches scorching temperatures at midday, this would be very useful indeed. While they are at it, go ahead and use some of the extra room they will have after removing chip n' dales treehouse for an elaborate queue!
