    Re: Will It Ever Stop? The Slamming of How Magic Kingdom can't compare to Disneyland?

    I way prefer Disneylands Nemo, but they really can't be compared. The two attractions are completely different.

    The return of the subs represents much more to Disneyland than just some gimmick of seeing projected fish from a submarine. Just watching the subs go through the lagoon is basis enough for a good quality ride. If a person has only been to WDW and is either too young to have witnessed their subs or never visited when they had them, this site is something that is really quite indescribable.

    Does this make DL better than the MK? Not in my opinion. The subs were necessary in order to keep the "Disney" in Disneyland, which could have easily gotten lost especially since the DLR does not have the advantage of size to hide things as easily. WDW also brought back a new and they say better (I haven't seen it) Haunted Mansion so hopefully that is a sign for similar improvements there -- and let me say that it would be great if MK had their subs back too!

    The Oriental Land Company is contractually obligated to maintain certain standards. Definitely more willing to invest, but not entirely out of a grand respect for Walt Disney.

    Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is nothing compared to Disneyland's. The Georgia red clay of Chickapin Hill looks very odd sitting between two southwestern points. Tomorrowland is half finished and has an ugly "power plant". ToonTown Fair is a joke of a land. Main Street, USA is a big box store bisected by a road.

    Disneyland does a very good job of keeping up with the larger Magic Kingdom.

    It might fit the theme better (I don't agree), but the attraction at the Magic Kingdom is simply the weakest version.

    A few years ago I rode a pier roller coaster in Seaside Heights, NJ. The car had to be manually pushed out of the station, missed the lift chain and had to be manually pushed onto it, and had manually operated station breaks. This thing also had a loop!

    It really is a shame they never finished.
