  • [Rumor] WDS Placemaking (2015)

    This is a very serious rumor. The Walt Disney Studios Park will finally have a placemaking like DCA. This placemaking is rumored to include Toy Story Mania (whose construction is very seriously rumored to begin in just a few months!).

    ORDDU: If memory serves, Jay Rasulo once commented that every Disney resort around the world would eventually have a Toy Story Mania attraction. So this is a rumor I'm inclined to take seriously.

      I do remember hearing about such a remark. Why would you make a Toy Story Land without it? To be cheap.

        Could well happen. Space has been reserved for it since Toy Story Land was built. They've just been waiting for the money.

          The parisian version of Toy Story Mania is rumored to have an increased capacity compared to the other versions due to the fact that it is supposed to have three routes instead of two.

            Where exactly would it be located? not very familiar with the studios property.
            hopefully the entrance would be accessed from toy story land

              Yes, the entrance would be where the wall of dominoes currently stands, between the parachute drop and RC Racer. The new attraction would require the Tram Tour route to be moved yet again. (The third time in its short history).

                The tram tour essentially blocks off most of the park's expansion room. Disney owns land about the same size of the park located behind the tram tour. If the tram were to be taken out or put above ground or moved completely, the park could potentially double in size.

                  Incorrect. They're going to build a hub right there. Toy Story Mania will be located alongside Ratatouille.

                    We seem to be working from different information, so you could well be right. As long as the ride gets built, I don’t much care where it goes!

                      OK, it may be yet another clone, but I don't care. If it serves as boost to the park and enables it to move forward with other ancillary projects (such as further themeing) I'm all for it.

                      I presume that we're looking at Summer '16 at the earliest though?

                        Funny, because it's likely the only park that doesn't need the increased ridership capacity. TDS and Hollywood Studios have too many guests for the double track only, DCA seems to manage ok.

                          I agree, and think that the ride would be fine at WDS with one station, not even two! Unless, of course, WDS did a massive renovation and boosted attendance by a lot.

                            At this point it makes since to build attractions that would handle high capacity rates to avoid the need for future investment to correct mistakes. They already did that once with that park when it was first built.

                            Also let's look at some of the additions after the initial construction, Crush coaster was a great addition but it suffers from low capacity. Toy story land is also a nicely themed area that the park was in need of for families but the lack of toy story mania and only three minor low capacity attractions it really did not help the parks future growth.

                            Toy story mania needs to be built with the need for improved capacity to help the overflow of guests within a park that has low ride count and low capacity attractions. With the other rumors flying around that another attraction will close soon to make way for a Marvel land they will need the added capacity.

                            Even DCA with it's higher attraction counts see huge lines for its Toy story Midway Mania attraction which luckily slowed down a bit only because of the extremely popular Carsland

                              Animagique is rumored to close in 2015.
