    Walt Disney once told Herb Ryman.."just do something poeple would like." DLP needs Mission Space and TDL Pooh.

    Oh yeah, I also think that perhaps they should add more to the backlot. Make more actual production studios and extend the backlot tour so you see more stuff.

    Personally, I think the muppets wouldn't work in Paris. Why? I don't really believe that the French are too familiar with the muppets as we are. Therefor, no point of putting in the muppets if the French don't even know who they are.

    Here are my ideas:

    Disneyland Park:

    Bring the long neglected Beauty and the Beast Animatronic show to Fantaseyland

    Put in a Jungle Cruise in the moats around Adventure Island.

    Add a different version of the Indiana Jones adventure next to the coaster. Rename the Temple of Peril to "Excavator."

    If you're gonna add Buzz, I think they should put him in the Buzz Lightyear resturaunt. Put something else in the place of the Visionarium.

    Add a Disney Qwest type attraction into the place of the Autopia, but make it themed to Jules Vern's science lab and he's inviting everyone to play around with his latest inventions.

    Replace HISTA with something. I can't think of anything in particular right now. Philarmagic won't work because it does not fit the theme of Discoveryland.

    Walt Disney Studios:

    Add tons of more detail to the area. Put a Great Movie ride in the place of the Backlot Tour station.

    Replace Animagique with Philarmagic.

    Add Toon Studios, but as follows:

    Tear down the magic carpets of aladdin to shreds.

    Make it a completely indoor toon looking production studio.

    I like the 3-D show toon court idea. Perhaps it could be a Judge Judy toon parody called "Judge Minnie" and you're cast in the role of the jury.

    "Roller Coaster Rabbit" will be out doors. It will be themed to a Toon-like wooden rollercoaster. You're cast as extras to be riding the roller coaster while Roger Rabbit does his act by trying to save Baby Herman from hurting himself on the roller coaster. You'll see animatronics of Roger and Baby Herman doing wacky things as you ride on a thrilling roller coaster. You'll actually be filmed while on the ride, and your chance to shine will be shown intercut with the complete roger rabbit cartoon.

    Goofy's Stunt planes: Goofy is looking for people to perform stunts for an upcomming cartoon which involves flying planes. This is your chance to show that you have what it takes to do the stunts. This is a simple kiddie coaster like Barnstormer.

    Mickey and Minnie's trailers: Meet Mickey and his friends here! And see all of the decorations in their trailer.

    Add ToT at the end of a Sunset BLVD themed area.

    Add a new theme to the Armagedon show.

    Those are all my ideas!

    P.S. I ran across this little fact when I looked up the Chef in the Wikipedia:
    "The Chef's gibberish has been given a life of its own, with "Swedish Chef" translators on several websites such as Google, and in 2003 Opera Software published a special "Bork" version of its internet browser which turned the MSN website into "Swedish.""

    While I like the Muppet ideas, ("What a great film, too bad they had to ruin it by putting a PIG in it?", "Hey, look at that great Goofy mask! That's not a mask. Oh, sorry lady", "I'm leaving, Forever. Great, could you get me a sandwich while you're out - FOREVER!", "Gonzo, we don't have a phone. Oh, I'll just run out and get one.", "Hey, who are you? Max, Dorothy was sick so the union sent me.", "Would you please STOP this nonsence? Ok - What nonsense would you like?")* the question at hand though is the degree to which the Muppets are known in Europe. I don't know if Sesame Street has foreign versions, but I just don't see the Muppets as having the recognition factor in Europe as they do in the states. Granted, there doesn't seem to be too much of them around, although I do believe that Muppet Wizzard of Oz is in production. Now of course, I could be completely wrong and the Muppets could be big in Europe given how European tastes do differ.

    *Just chasing Bean for a bit.
    And for the record, I had some guests ask me to shut up because we were ruining the attraction for them. We basically had turned it into a Rocky Horror Picture Show-type of viewing.

And don't forget a facade of the Louvre (only a facade, so people can imagine what's inside), and put an ODV cart outside that sells glowing replicas of the Mona Lisa and Eiffel Tower light chasers! Throw in a few perfume shops and French fry stalls, and voila!!!! It'll be a popular masterpiece for sure!

    But why go with ANOTHER Tower of Terror? Why not an all new Star Wars-based ride that makes the guest a part of the Emporer's security detail and sends them on a chase through Couruscant via a jet pack - think Soarin' - only to have the rebels get away to fight later?

    Walt Disney Studios:
    This is very difficult - I think like Ian and believe that the park need atmosphere - change it from parking to park. I think that the Tower of Terror will become something like a castle for the studios. I would replace directly the loading station of "Studio Tram Tour" and give the buildings a little Hollywood Boulevard style. which means that street sets would be found beyond todays loading station. The tour itself should be redone - Catastrophe Canyon is cool, but that's it and the attraction is really lame.

    My dream attractions for the Studios would be

    Santa Claus"e" - the ride. First you board Santa's Sleigh and travel through some scenes where elves are preparing all the christmas presents - at the end you reach the stable of the reindeers and afterwards you take off and your sleigh becomes a little faster - it turns into a kind of indoor rollercoaster through the night with snow flakes flying around and at the end you land on a houseroof and exit by a winter set and a Santa's shop.

    Mary Poppins is one of my other favorite attractions - Get on a horse and travel through Mary's dreamland.

    There is still some other stuff I have in mind - I will tell you later

    What about something where Stich sets out to conquer Europe and Graffitt the greatest works of art? (...one is a genius, the other is insane...) A bit of poking fun at the French's hatred for things Western.

    Adding to the Jules Verne Theme,I would add 20,000 Leagues under the Sea and Journey to the Centre of the Earth as part of my Discoveryland expansion which I call Mysterious Island.

    I tear that Indy coaster down and build the proper Indiana Jones attraction that can be found at Disneyland in Califonia and Tokyo Disney Seas.

    Mickey's Toon Town with new dark ride and family coaster.





    Walt Disney Studios:

    Fantasmic to give guest something to stay late for.

    Mickey's Philarmagic to replace Animagique

    Muppet Studios

    E ticket attraction based on Stitch

    I would plan a MAJOR expansion of WDW Studios to double or triple the size. Have we forgotten that DMGM was envisioned as a 1/2 day park and then expanded to meet guest demand? Granted the Paris issue isn't an issue of demand, but lack of it.

    Biker's

    How about a biking ride kind of like Universal Studios ET, but instead it's the sites of the Tour de France? They could be racing (or hearing) Lance Armstrong.

    I love that idea so much! I do like the Hollywood Hills theming but I doubt that would ever happen, but then again not a lot of the ideas on this thread would.

    PS, I think Expedition Everest should be kept at Animal Kingdom.

    Walt Disney Studios should in first place change its theming: no more "That's a wrap!" theme but "Where the movies start to live." They should change the aspect from creating movies to being in a movie. Who wants to see a magician again after he has revealed all his tricks? That's why WDS attractions are very poor, I don't want to see them again (except Cinemagique and Rock'n Roll coaster).

    So what I want for:

    WDS

    - Toon Studios with Duckburg (Europeans are Donald, Goofy and Mickey fans, much more than in the States!). One attraction is Scrooges Money bin (Kid's & family ToT) which is attacked by Magica de Spell and Beagleboys).
    - '20s hollywood, including a mountain replica with the Hollywood sign. Red car running on a Sunset boulevard. A Pradise Pier with a lake. Hollywood Tower hotel (ToT).
    - Inside the mountain is a place for another E-ticket attraction, Fantasmic!

    DLP
    - Remove Indy coaster and replace it with Everest Expedition with Tibetan theme. Paris cold weather makes it even more real. Couple of real yaks could live on its grounds. Indiana Jones could still be the hero of this attraction.

    Disney Village
    - Cover the walkway with a glass roof
    - The village needs a total re-theme; cheerful, happy place to hang around. Now it looks like an after-party hangover.

    Cheers,
    Zarniwoop

    Forget Toontown

    I think Toontown (and any Toontown spin-offs like Mickey's Fair at MK) belongs in the Magic Kingdom category of parks. Bring on the Muppets!

    The theming should be a town taken over by the Muppets, with graffiti (ala Disney-MGM Studios) etc. Name: El Kermito Ranch

    Features
    * Bear in the Big Blue House Live
    * Muppets 4D (ala Shrek)
    * A town square in the middle featuring food outlets, and a clock tower with the two old men popping out every 15 minutes (in French, mind)
    * Miss Piggy's Boutique - an interactive 'shop', like Goofy's Bounce House
    * Henson Masterclass - an interactive puppet show and learn
    * Kermit's - one of the most exclusive - but very fun - resturaunts in DLRP. This won't be the only eatery, see town square above
    * The Great Muppet Ride - a spoof of The Great Movie Ride, also a new ride to the Studios (but in a different part of the park)
    * Mr Henson's Bubble Bop - a quite large water play area, richly detailed with crafty little things that the average child wouldn't notice

    As I have said, the theming is a town taken over by the Muppets. The Bubble Bop will be the furthest attraction away from the Town Square, no-one likes soggy food. The should also be Muppets walking around.

    Disneyland: a geyser ride in frontierland, a new and updated jungle cruise in adventureland, one of the originally proposed dark rides for Fantasyland and a coaster saluting jorney to the center of earth in tomorrow land.
    Studios: expand the backlot tour. Do a new version of the great movie ride, one that is up to date.

    And that would be a good start.

    I think that emphasis on rides from the movies with a French theme: B&B and Hunchback of Notre Dame should be representative of their core for their Fantasyland. This way there's one section that isn't Disneyland taking over, but more like, "one of our stories returning home."

    Ian, I know you like to promote the Studios themselves and I'm sure they could do a Studios tour, but the only thing I've heard to come from there is Hunchback.

    I just hope the the DLR management don't expect Tower of Terror and the addition of a few small lids rides to 'fix' the problem with the Studios.

    If you look at DCA this is exactly what they did there, they added Flick's Fun Faire and the Tower of Terror and it has clearly not worked, attendance is still low.

    Now at least DCA has some atmosphere, not everywhere but it is quite good except for the Paradise Pier area which looks cheap.

    We need a few more rides at the Studios, big 'E' ticket rides yes like TOT, BUT it also needs atmosphere, it needs to feel like a great place to be. At the moment you can stand in the middle of the park and virtually see it all, no surprises, stunning vista or views. Just grey buildings and a vast expanse of black flooring.

    It does not feel like a theme park, more like a collection of attractions just grouped together.

    I tell you what, there is some fantastic ideas here! I love the ones about a Muppet land at the Studios, and arsonwinter's ideas were my favourite.

    But I think a Parisian Splash Mountain should be scrapped altogether. There is nothing wrong with small, B-D ticket rides being imported that wouldn't be majorly noticed, but not an E-ticket ride. If there was going to be a Parisian Splash Mountain, there would be one already.

    The Studios needs some life, desperately. More theming, extend the hours and make the park look pretty at night, with some lights etc. Maybe the huge lights that you see in the 20th Century Fox logo before films. I originally liked the idea of a French Fantasmic, but again, if you have a billion Euros, you can afford to bring the Imagineers over and get a brand new show, that could rival Fantasmic, like Encore does at Tokyo Disneysea.

    We don't need new hotels, and definitely not a third park. The Studios needs a new land (as I have said, the Muppets sounds brilliant), and I think there are plans for an indoor Toontown, more closely based on the Roger Rabbit Toontown. Adventureland at Disneyland should be expanded, I liked the Jungle Safari idea. I think both parks should have a different feel at night, with different music and lights etc.

    Although I am against Splash Mountain, Disneyland needs a new mountain. Again I say - something new! Volcano? Maybe a lava version of Animal Kingdom's Expedition Everest?
