    I want it in Paradise pier but not in the lagoon. They have a ton of room behind screamin where they could build it.

    Put it in the Motor Boat Lagoon, since the story would fit well in Fantasyland

    Re: Where to put a Little Mermaid ride?

    Ariel is not Californian, and she is not contemporary. She needs to vacate the pier, and so does her father.

    D.C.A. is quickly becoming an even bigger mess than the park was when it first opened.

    If there is to be any Attraction that uses "The Little Mermaid", said Attraction belongs in Fantasyland.

    Technically... I believe Eric's kingdom was a coastal European one, right?

    How about this idea (I think you'll like it):

    In the old MBC area, you create a new section of Fantasyland. This section incorporates a hidden showbuilding (sorta like the sub caverns or Pirates). In the showbuilding, you have the Little Mermaid attraction. Out in front of the showbuilding, however, you have a Peter Pan style lagoon with - the Pirate Ship! That particular section of the park is sorely lacking in food options, so bring back Chicken of the Sea.

    Between Subs and the new section, there's the opportunity to retheme that whole corner of the park all aquatic. Yeah, the Autopia passes through it, but since they enter so far away, it wouldn't matter as much.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    We don't need another dark ride right now. I think they need to focus on fixing DCA's theming, finishing the subs, getting POTC done, redoing the ToT drop sequence, and making sure the DCA rides are up to par before they focus on something new right now. Sorry to sound this awful, but something needs to be done. A new ride won't take away everyone's focus. Just jade it a bit.

    Wait, ToT is brand new, why do they need to redo the drop sequence?

    Re: Where to put a Little Mermaid ride?

    ok guys why not do the little mermaid ride in the top section of the buzz lightyear show building? I dont know if buzz has caused a need for high cieling or what not but it wouldnt take much work OR themeing to turn the area around the ariel meet n greet place to the line for the ride. just a thought.

    An interesting proposal. With the subs, a Little Mermaid ride, a lagoon, and the pirate ship, there might even be enough stuff to divide an aquatic area like that into its own land. (Well, if you could stick a shop or two in there, and maybe another restaurant in addition to Chicken of the Sea.)

    Re: Where to put a Little Mermaid ride?

    zugzug: NOW we're talkin! It would take some major construction, of course, but build up the buzz building to support Little Mermaid above it, allow the new Peoplemover to run through it (behind glass, so as not to disrupt the look of Mermaid - possibly even make Mermaid appear as a fishtank to the peoplemover?), and have the ride enter on the Matterhorn side, not far from the meet n greet!

    Goony, c'mon, I know you know this!! It's been the talk for a while now. Next year they are reconfiguring the drop sequence for ToT. It's supposed to be different every time now...in theory. This is not new news.

    Put it in Fantasyland. It is perfect there. The whole concept of DCA needs to be reconsidered before any more attractions should be added. Little Mermaid does not fit the California theme. It does not fit the Pixar theme either. Whatever theme they come up with for DCA will determine what kind of attractions it should have.

    It is stupid just throwing attractions at DCA thinking that a ride is going to make the park a hit. What you will end up with is a hodgepodge of attractions really with no central theme. That was the kind of amusement park that existed before Walt Disney built Disneyland.

    Good points, JCF! I was thinking that even as I was posting in favor of the DCA - PP option. Can I get my vote back?

    But I'll only consent (as if my opinion mattered ) to giving up the MBC area to LM if we can convert the old Fantasyland Skway station into a Beauty and the Beast dark ride ....

    DCA needs to get away from the CA and all the pixar rides. I think this could be the start of the changes to DCA.

    Re: Where to put a Little Mermaid ride?

    seems like the motor boat area is the obvious place to put it
