    what classic Disney film NEEDS it's own Fantasyland dark ride?

    -first of all, tI know this has probaly already been discussed here but I'll get a little more specific, because I kind of actualy want confirmation for an idea project in the future.

    so..what classic Disney film needs it's own dark ride? in my opinion, Cinderella, Beauty and The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Marry Poppins would work extremely well. such as, if there was a beauty and the Beast attraction, the outside would be a miniture part of the castle from the movie. Then the cinderella ride would be the stepsisters house, and a Mary Poppins ride could be a streetscape from the film. Sleeping Beauty... oh, just re-open the diorama

    so, were could these attractions go? any new Dark ride or character based attraction could fit in the old motorboat cruise area or take place of the Princess fantasy fair(i'd like to see both) and a way to conserve space would be to make the attractions two stories (like Alice)

    so i'd like to know, what Disney movie MUST be turned into an attraction? (that will fit in Fantasyland)

    None - I'm happy with what is there, the way it is.

    Although I don't think there needs to be any new dark rides, I really feel that Beauty and the Beast is--for lack of a better term--"due" for some sort of tribute. I feel it would fit in fairly well with the 'village' appearance of Fantasyland as well. Any tribute for Sleeping Beauty should, I feel, be placed in her castle, if at all possible. I'm not entirely sure where Mary Poppins would 'fit' in with Fantasyland though--she has always seemed a much better fit with Main Street than anything else (to myself at least--disregarding nationalities for a moment).

    what about Cinderella folks? certianly a classic, AND a princess, I can see a dark ride of this using the trackless pooh thing from TDL, like in the ballroom you spin with the dancing AA's.

    Personally, i'd have no interest in any of the above disney films. However, I think a Lion King ride would be amazing. Imagine being immersed into the beginning scene, circle of life blasted through the speakrs...

    eh, I knew someone would say that! It might deserve a ride but I don't think it would make sence in Fantasyland. Maybe the Animal Kingdom, just not Adventureland(space and theme issues) or Fantasyland.

    I think they can still add more dark rides, I mean, they added Pinochio in in the 1980's re-hab, so why not put in more? It can only increase DL's capacity..

    I would vote Beauty and The Beast. It's such a beautiful and classic movie, one of the only Disney films to be nominated for a best picture academy award, if i'm not mistaken. It would fit in with the fantasyland theme, and has great potential for a dark ride, especially some of the Beast's West Wing scenes.

    I can't vote--The Lion King isn't on the list.

    booty and the beast vote from me!

    Mary Poppins should have been the next replacement show for the fantasyland theater IMO.

    The Short List
    • Beauty and the Beast
    • Cinderella
    • Sword in the Stone (sorry carousel doesn't cut it)
    • Robin Hood
    • Hunchback of Notre Dame
    • Black Cauldron
    Sleeping Beauty used to be a really cool walk through, hopefully they will reopen that.

    Adventureland is EXTREMELY crowded, wish they would utilize the multi-show format previously mentioned.

    Re: what classic Disney film NEEDS it's own Fantasyland dark ride?

    I'd love to see Cinderella or Beauty & the Beast have some sort of tribute in the park and, of course, have the walk through reopened for the Castle.

    However, I don't want it to become too princessy, you know? Robin Hood, the Black Cauldron, or the Sword & the Stone would all be excellent options, too. But, the old river boat section by the monorail area is in dire need of something, so maybe Ariel is the best fit?

    I think with all the $ that the princesses are bringing in, its probably going to be themed accordingly, but what I really want for them to do is bring one of the classics back onto the large screen and develop a ride based on that momentum as opposed to creating some iffy movie and giving it a new ride because it has more momentum (at least publicly) than real fan favourites.
