    Re: Why is there no boat ride...

    I would actually hate to see the motorboat cruise put in the lagoon... It might of be fun back in the day at disneyland, but how many people do you think would actually like it today?

    Motorboat cruise would be outdated, and boring to most guests today.

    I think the laggon is too deap for that. But it is a cool idea. They could all be themed to little sail boats.

    Re: Why is there no boat ride...

    Wait a sec, since when are boats commonplace? I'd say a *lot* of people don't get to experience going out to a lake on a boat. For that reason, motorboat cruise would probably go over well. Especially the format it had, where it's all on a track and kids can "drive" them.

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

    Depending on the depth, how about those 2-man motor boats that they have in WDW?

    I like the shark idea, while nothing too big they could put in some animatronics of sea life (like the shark) and perhaps seals and stuff. I really dunno what they should do with it, but you never know, maybe someday it will turn out to be something, but until then we'll just do this

    What about radio controlled sail boats that the guests can drive from from the railing....like the ones from the disneyland hotel? That would be neat. Pretty to watch as well.

    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Good Idea. That would be cool. But there would have to be stationary themeing and water geysers all around.

    That is where the animatronic animals could come in that someone mentioned. You would pass a shark, seals, and other animals.

    The more burning question, IMO, Why did the regime that designed DCA take up so much prime real estate with the lagoon when they could have built something that Disney goers crave, like.........More shops or restaurants

    Seriously, I think they need to do something with that area.

    No shows. DCA already has a healthy share of shows, some of them actually quite good. But when I go with my mom, who isn't into shows, we're done with DCA in three hours because there aren't enough rides. I'd say DCA needs to add at least four more rides before they even think of putting in another show, to try and balance things out a little.

    The other problem with doing a show on the lake is seating. There's nowhere to put an audience. One of the reasons Fantasmic!'s been around for ten years is that you can easily fit several thousand people on the river and give them all reasonably good views. Nothing around that bay on Paradise Pier is even comparable to that sort of seating area.

    I like the idea of waves. Only until they put a ride in there, of course. But it would be hella cheap and easy; even the most ghetto water park has a wave pool. And it would be a very welcome addition to the feel of that area.
