    A new Mickey Mouse-themed dark ride for WDW's Magic Kingdom

    I've been pretty much resigned to Toontown Fair being encroached by Storybook Circus. Then I came across this: another of the many, many abandoned concepts for Disneyland is this: Mickey's Mad House, which would have been part of the abandoned Dumbo's Circusland back in 1976. According to Davelandblog: "Dumbo's Circusland [was to feature] 'Mickey's Madhouse' essentially a wild mouse roller coaster in a dark ride environment, set in the world of early black-and-white Mickey Mouse cartoons (think of the former Mulholland Madness at Disney California Adventure, but indoors, with no clear view of where the track ahead was going)." Wikipedia simply says, "A funhouse adventure featuring clowns and such." But of course, Dumbo's Circusland never came to be, thanks to it being part of Discovery Bay, based on "The Island At the Top of the World", a movie which just plain flopped at the box office.

    But now, we have Storybook Circus which took over Toontown Fair, as I just said, Anyway, I think to compensate for the loss of Toontown Fair (and the loss of an opportunity to build Goofy's Motor Mania, a dark ride I thought of in the style of Mr. Toad/Roger Rabbit), I think we should add Mickey's Fun House to Storybook Circus. I renamed it "Mickey's Fun House" to tone down something that would probably not be something associated nowadays with Mickey. The ride would also be more of a general dark ride, albeit one like Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin. This version will remove the coaster aspect, for two reasons: first, there is a wild mouse coaster at the Animal Kingdom (Primeval Whirl); and second, there will be several new coasters added to the Magic Kingdom already (okay, one new one will be added, but still...).

    Here's a picture of the original planned Mickey's Mad House, to give you an idea:


    Unfortunately, I have no information on how to go about doing the ride. Any ideas?

    I'd say have it skew towards the horror themed Mickey shorts like Mad Doctor, Lonesome Ghosts and Haunted House and function as a spookhouse. With Toad and Snow White gone, something needs to fill the ecological niche that is "The Child Frightener" that has been left behind in Fantasyland.

    I would have 2 problems with that. A the location of story book circus is well, a cirrcus. And my other issue is that I don't think mickey should be assosciated with something that may frighten kids. In all honesty, I just don't think I personally like the attraction. Not to mention that its kinda been costomary for mickey to not really have an attraction of his own.

    What about the proposed Mickey's Mad House I mentioned above (granted, it never got built or anything, but still...)? Or even his house at Disneyland?

    Well Mickey's house, though called an attraction, is basically the queue for his M&G. not saying i dont love his house. Mickey's Mad House, was never built. And that was back in the 70's. Mickey's Philharmagic almost has nothing to do with Mickey. my point is, i feel like it would seem odd to me. i feel like it makes more sense for him having multiple cameos in other attractions but thats just me. And its not that i think the idea is bad by any means, i just personally dont like it.

    What about the Mickey Mouse Revue? Granted, it's not about him, but he's there, and in fact, the whole preview of the show is all about the history of Mickey. Here's the complete video of it from Tokyo Disneyland (it's in Japanese, so you've been warned):

    Well, I guess, except it's a dark ride, not just a roller coaster ride in the dark. However, my idea would be to scrap the roller coaster idea, only because they already have a wild mouse coaster at the Animal Kingdom.

    Here's the rough location of the new ride (the area marked inside the yellow):


    That area is the Tomorrowland Speedway, but there's something wrong. As you can see by this picture, the Speedway is in plain sight of Tomorrowland. The Storybook Circus entrance sign would have to be moved out several feet, too.

    If I put that ride in that area, how could we keep it so it doesn't get seen too much from Tomorrowland?
