    Re: Radiator Springs Racers Description

    I think the premise is fine, and it will be an awesome ride.

    I don't get why people bash Test Track as a "Ride in a warehouse". Going on the Original Posters description, TT DOES indeed take you where you can't normally go. Most people will never be test drivers on a proving ground.

    Yes, but the rides don't follow the exact story of the movie. Both rides center around the guests as the "main characters." Indiana Jones Adventure has Indy helping us out. Star Tours has characters like R2D2 and C3PO, but the main characters like Luke, Leia, Han Solo and Darth Vader don't appear in the ride at all.

    From the description, BTW, I don't think Radiator Springs Racers will be Cliff Notes on the movie Cars. For one thing, the guests will be the ones "racing."

    That doesn't change the fact that it's a very ordinary experience. I spend an hour on the freeway just to get to Disneyland, I don't see how a ride that simulates that is anything special, "classic status" or no.

    You're complaining about a ride that is four years away based upon blog conjecture and your own biases against anything that Walt didn't personally supervise. They've RAISED the budget for this ride several times and as far as I know it's going to be the most expensive ride at any Disney park (maybe not Tokyo, but definitely in America). Not only the money, but everything I've read from the imagineers working on it says they're pulling out all the stops and trying to make this an amazing experience in every possible way. But please, tell me again why it's already a horrible ride.

    The original premise of Disneyland was to be A PART OF the stories we already know! Don't get me wrong being the "main characters" of an attraction is perfect im all for that, but whats wrong with being immersed in the same adventure we just simply watch at home?

    You forgot to mention the following rides, which are all "cliffnotes versions" of the movies:

    Alice in Wonderland
    Peter Pan
    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
    Pinnochio
    Snow White

    Because its stupid to pay 70 dollars a ticket to experiance something you can simply watch at home.

    Yes, I agree it would be stupid to pay $70 to get the same experience you can get with a $10 DVD.

    Which is fortunate because none of the movie-based rides are even remotely close to watching the movie at home. Of course the stories are the same, why would they build an Alice in Wonderland ride and change the story? It's a completely different way to experience a classic story (or a not-so-classic story, in Radiator Springs' case).

    Re: Radiator Springs Racers Description

    Are we really going to have to overly "hate" or overly "praise" RSR for 4 years! Maybe Rasulo will extend YOMD for 4 more years so we can all spew venom about that! When it comes to "just going fast" it was Rocket Rods that was the ridiculous ride. I always thought driving on the freeway was more fun than RR.

    I am not a big fan of Autopia but that is because I am old enough to drive. The best part of Autopia is standing in line and riding with a young kid. "Driving" a car like your dad or mom is magical.

    I look forward to seeing many Darkbeer photo updats of the construction of RSR when it breaks ground.

    Re: Radiator Springs Racers Description

    This reminds me of one of the scenes in the Simpsons movie.

    Why would people pay $10.00 to see something in the theares that they could see at home? Of course the movie was making fun of itself because millions actually did go and pay $10.00 plus snacks to see something that was pretty much similiar to what they could see at home for free everyday.


    Why go see star wars (strar tours), Indiana Jones or even places like bug thunder mountain when you could see the movie or drive out to the desert and see the same thing?


    Maybe because its not the same experience no matter how closely related they could get.

    Being surrounded by life size characters in Monsters Inc, or driving around in a car in monument valley is way diferent than watching it on your television

    Monsters Inc. and Nemo give off the feeling of being a cliff notes version of the movies they are based on, whereas the Fantasyland dark rides do not. Mr. Toad and Roger Rabbit don't even begin to follow the plot of their movies. I will never forget the scene in "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad" where Mr. Toad goes to Hell (deep sarcasm). Nemo and Monsters make you feel like you are just viewing the movie. The Fantasyland dark rides took more liberties with their source material and focused on getting emotions across such as fright and wonder. Monsters and Nemo put all their effort into exactly retelling the story from the movie, almost down to the last detail and they don't work on creating any emotions.

    I know I am a fairly negative poster most of the time, but face it, I'm a purist, an old-school Disney fan even if I'm only 22. I enthusiastically love some things post Walt, such as the masterpieces Baxter oversaw in the 70s and 80s up until the final (for now) Disneyland masterpiece: Indy.

    DLR is starting to become merely about characters, not experiences. Disney thinks Nemo is the star of the subs, while as far as I'm concerned the subs are the star of FNSV and always will be. I bring this up, because Disney seems more focused on cartoon character based attractions recently and in the coming years, and that is something that me and many other purists are against.

    You are taking the premise of TWO of the original DL rides and claiming that's the premise for the entire park? Let's not stretch things to our liking....

    Again... more super selective memory. You bring up Rodger Rabit (which isn't even part of FL) and Mr Toad as examples of how the FL dark rides do not 'give off the feeling of being a cliff notes version of the movies' which conveniently leaving out

    - peter pan
    - snow white
    - Pinocchio
    - Alice

    It's 4 to 1 dude.

    Yet Peter Pan, Snow White, Pinocchio, and Alice work to convey emotions, not just retell the story. Plus, I knew Roger Rabbit wasn't in Fantasyland, but I still used it as an example of a similar type of ride.

    BTW Alice is fairly different than the movie, the ride ends with a tea party, wherein the movie, the tea party, comes much earlier.

    Pan actually lets you fly to Neverland, whereas in Nemo and Monster's Inc. you just slowly stroll past scenes from the movie.

    Wow, traveling UNDER WATER in a Submarine doesn't rate on a similar level as traveling in a flying boat above little glow in the dark stylized flooring. I have a feeling your beef is more against Pixar characters than the attraction itself.

    I would gladly go on Monsters Inc rather than Snow White or Pinnochio (even though I will go on them all and enjoy them!)
