    Re: The Incredible Tomorrowland Idea

    Well, there are lots of tunnels that could be converted into something media-like, not unlike the Tron tunnel. Heck, they (WDI) could make each ride unique by creating randomly generated images or video. Of what, I don't know.

    And, more cameras would catch the shenanigans of teenagers.

    Well, let's just say I'm glad that in my day there were not any extra cameras in InnerSpace, Skyway, and PeopleMover.
    Too bad, kids of today. Your parents are too smart (i.e., armed with first-hand knowledge) for you.

So Mom and Dad can ride with the kids while they play the games. Or the trivia games could be played by all. If you did not want to play the games, no problem, just don't. I see it as a something you could chose. Tune in the tour option or game options or nothing. That way the same ride can be more interesting for those "yawners."
    that's a realy good idea, I'd like to see the new Peoplemovers look like the new mark VII monorails(in their paint job), also, just to have them in a pod shape would be extremely cool design choice, just enclose them but have a window that you can't climb out of, but would provide air for emergency purposes. The inside can be all cushiony and little touch screens can be everywere, I'd still like some order to the tour though other than just playing games or not, like a host is on the mini T.V.'s the whole time will explain what you're seeing, but you can play games at the same time but the video of the host will go away but you still hear the voice -just throwing out suggestions

    The whole point Walt was making is to create a transportation system of the future to get around a city of the future (actually he was using corporate sponsors like GM of all co's to pay for the development of these systems during the worlds fair then to use them at Disneyland but his ultimate plan was to use these systems in his EPCOT progress city which was to be a real living/ working city you would use the MONORAIL to get around longer distances and they at the stations switch to a PEOPLEMOVER to get around smaller areas like neighborhoods and shopping centers, then use moving sidewalks (now all but gone at Disneyland) to get to final distinations so as Walt put it " a city always on the move"

    thats why

    This idea was already on the drawing boards, it would have been called The Incredipods. But the Idea was shot down and now they are going for a more futuristic spin on the origional peoplemover.

    Re: The Incredible Tomorrowland Idea

    My idea was to build in tv screens to show a video narration. The second part was to have the seats inside the car spin like in BLAB.

    That would be very nice to have some type of redesign of Tomorrowland. However there is no more room to expand anything at this point.

    Re: The Incredible Tomorrowland Idea

    I did a thread a while back but completely forgot to post any concept art. I will work on something... thank you for reminding me. As to my choice, single large wheeled vehicle. So one giant show wheel which is embedded in the track. In it's center is a bubble which seats 4. The show wheel moves as the vehicle moves and also has LED's on both sides that light up. The Bubble has blacklights beneath it so at night it appears to float. Inside the Bubble is a small center wheel similar to Teacups. The faster you spin the wheel the faster the Bubble spins and the faster the LED's on the show wheel flash giving the impression of the vehicle moving faster. If you do not want to spin then the LED's would continue at a normal pace and the bubble would remain static. This wou

    Like I said I will take some time to work up some concept art a bit later if I have a chance. I strongly feel this would support the theme of a fanciful futuristic mode of transportation as well as provide very dynamic movement above Tomorrowland.
