    Re: Doesn't RSR in DCA seem to fit better in WDW than the DLR ?

    You're just JEALOUS! :P

    In all seriousness, where would you put Carsland in WvW? I assume Disney Hollywood Studios.

    Under what criteria do you think so. Big? Maybe, but it already has Everest Expedition.

    RSR is uniquely California with Route 66. I don't see how RSR fits unless they extend the Hollywood theming beyond the Studios theme. However, I think they are better off doing Star Wars Land.

    WDW doesn't need RSR. They need to focus on coming up with a fresh idea for the parks.

    Many others have said this but it needs to be repeated. Walt Disney pitched Florida as the place where they can build ANYthing they can imagine. Well, CARS was imagined up in CA. That means WDW should do something even better next.

    No-WDW-IJA does not imply no-WDW-Carsland. IJA and CL are different animals. The Indiana Jones franchise is licensed by Disney, whereas Cars is owned lock, stock and radiator by Disney. Carsland/Cars synergy-derived cash streams go straight into Disney's pocket. Indiana Jones brings 'em into the park, but somebody else gets the ancillary gravy. (Not to mention that for the not-inconsiderable egos of Bob & Tom, IJA has Eisner all over it.)

    Given the humongous merch numbers on Cars, its desirable demographic, and the fact that Carsland's R&D is essentially bought & paid for, cloning it for WDW is a no-brainer for the sharp pencil boys.

    All assuming, of course, that the DCA Carsland is a hit.

    Couldn't agree more. I think cloning and the whole One Disney/Disney Parks mindset suck. But Disney loves it. It fits their philosophy that "if something makes money, cloning it will make twice as much money with no R&D cost."

    Re: Doesn't RSR in DCA seem to fit better in WDW than the DLR ?

    First thing that came to my mind was the sheer scale of RSR there isn't much space in Fantasyland especially with the expansion. Secondly RSR fits perfectly into DCA since it is not just about Cars but it is also about the nostaglia of Route 66 the signs,the scenery, music everything. It would be hard to get a satisfactory attraction with the space.

    I still believe that the company wouldn't commit an expansion the size of Carsland in a resort where there's no clear place to put it, and where they've already committed large numbers for the Avatarland - coming from an administration that despises spending money on anything.

    This is a compelling argument. Still, I would be a little surprised to see TDO drop that kind of cash. We'll see, I guess.
    I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

    Re: Doesn't RSR in DCA seem to fit better in WDW than the DLR ?

    My feeling is Carsland is an exceptional case to rescue a failed theme park. There is no such crisis for the other minor parks in WDW, but perhaps Animal Kingdom could be in a similar situation when they announced Avatar and they finished Everest Expedition many years ago.

    Lets wait and see what happens. Carsland is a long time away from reality in other theme parks.

    I thought the new trend was: DL for boys, and WDW for girls

    But, but, but... They renamed the WDW carousel!! Didn't you know it's "Prince Charming Regal Carousel?!" And they came up with a story... that involves jousting! Now all the boys will want to ride it! Surely this shows TDO's dedication to the male demographic!

    (For serious though, I'm not sure either resort is necessarily skewed one way more than another. They both tend to pile on the princesses and pirates - and cars - a little too much.)

    Quoted for truth!!
    "In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends." - Anton Ego

    I think it would be a great addition to DHS - if they built in where the studio tour is you could add in catastrophe canyon for some additional fun!

    Seriously though I think a route 66 area would be agreat addition to DHs which is just as much in need of a makeover as DCA
