    Animotion!
    A trackless ride that lets you explore the animation process!

    Ever wonder how cartoons are made? Well, wonder no more! For the first time ever, The Toontown Production Company will be letting guests tour their facilities! And your tour guide for today is...Goofy?! Uh oh...


    Queue & Loading Area


    The queue/loading area is themed to look like a soundstage, but a cartoony one. It's filled with various items from famous Disney cartoons, like Mickey's sorcerer cap from The Sorcerer's Apprentice and his airplane from Plane Crazy. After guests board their vehicles (which are shaped like paint cans) they'll hear Goofy's voice telling them that he'll be with them in just a moment- he needs to ____ first (fill in the blank with one of 50 prerecorded tasks, such as wash the boss' car or change a lightbulb). After that, you hear the "Goofy scream," and Mickey's voice comes on to tell you that Goofy will be fine, and then proceeds to spiel the safety instructions.


    Set Building


    This is the first scene.




    The room is completely white when you first enter, except for Goofy at the end of the hallway. He's holding a microphone that carries his voice to your car. He explains to you that they're currently building the set for a new Cops and Robbers-type cartoon. A multitude of hands holding pencils then descend from the ceiling and begin drawing lines in thin air. Slowly but surely, the street comes together, with Goofy spieling bits of trivia about the studio's "history". He gets bored, and leans against something that's being drawn. He soon realizes that he's leaning on a newly-drawn train, and as it's whistle blows, he starts running down the track with the train after him. You then pass underneath the train tracks and into the next scene.


    (The blank room would be a lighting trick, and the lines on thin air would be clever projections on 3D surfaces. Goofy and the train would simply just be projections on a flat surface.


    Set Painting


    In the next scene, several fire hoses suspended from the ceiling are spraying paint willy-nilly all over some blank sets.




    Goofy, sounding a bit frazzled from the last room, pops up in front of one of the buildings. He tries to continue his tour spiel, but the hoses quickly turn toward him and start bombarding him with paint. After painting different patterns on him (such as polka dots and zebra stripes), the hoses blast him into the next scene, and you follow along.


    (Once again, effects are done with projections and light tricks.)

    The Music Room


    The lights slowly grow darker and darker. You hear Goofy say that he's having a hard seeing, and then hear a loud crash.




    After a few moments of stillness, horns then blare at your ride vehicle. Jazz music starts playing, and your ride vehicle bounces, spins, and zooms along the track to the music. Instruments and music notes are flying about. Colored strobe lights (that strobe very, very slowly) light up the scene in a surrel scene, with Goofy remarking "Garwsh, look at all the pretty lights!" He then explain that this is where the music for cartoons is made.


    (Floating instruments and music notes done in a similar fasion to the Seance Circle.)


    Prop Room




    You slowly enter the light once again, and find yourself in a room filled with moving inanimate objects. Toy airplanes zoom around, balls bounce, a Jack-in-the-Box pops up as you pass it, a piano tied to the ceiling above the track sways back and forth, and a cactus dances, just to name a few of the room's many objects. You see Goofy standing on a crate, saying that all of the props from every Disney cartoon ever made came from this room. Nobody knows who makes them, but they were all found here. He then points out that the piano hanging from the ceiling isn't tied very securely, and as you pass under it it falls a few feet. "Huh, I guess I was wrong," he says passively.


    (Goofy's an AA this time. For the sake of consistency, the animated Goofys in the previous scenes would be styled to look like the AAs.)


    Finale


    The sets that were being build earlier are now completely finished. As you start to travel down the street, Goofy pops up from a manhole in the middle of the road and remarks that something's missing. Sirens, alarms, and gunshots are suddenly heard. Air blasts make it seem like bullets are rushing past you, and guns seem to hover in midair while bags of money run off by themselves. Special surroundsound technology makes it feel like there are invisible people running, yellowing blowing whistles, etc. around you.

    "Whoops, I forgot to tell the actors that it was time to start! Hmm. Maybe nobody will notice. WHOAA!"

    Up until the "whoa," Goofy will have been looking around absentmindedly as your ride vehicle grew closer and closer to him. He ducks out the way just in time.

    "Phew, that was a close one!"
    Pounding noises are heard from the manhole.
    "Now, uh, how do I get out of here?"


    (Once again, Goofy's an AA.)


    Unload

    You unload in a location similar to the load station, but in a different area. Goofy's thanks you for taking the tour, and hopes that you take it again soon. "Now will someone please let me outta here?!"

    I'm workin' on it, I'm workin' on it...

    I honestly don't care about having my ideas used by other people. Yeah, if they take credit for it it'd hack me off, but if I'm creative enough to think of an idea worth stealing, I can think up another one that's just as good if not better, right?

    I spent a few hours honing an ideaa, only to realize that posting it on the internet would make it anyones for the taking. Then I read that people already discussed that. Too bad.

    The deadline is still the eighteenth. However, I will give people until monday to tell me whether or not they plan on entering the contest by the 18th. If noone else is, I'll start the voting.

    Discovery Area Description: This new land will be located between Fantasy and the world of Tomorrow. It will be the perfect location to bring both themed areas together. Like NOS does for Frontierland, Adventureland, and Critter Country.

    Submarine Attraction: The Finding Nemo theme would be a distant memory. In its place will be an attraction themed to the 20k Leagues Under the Sea book or movies. It will have the latest effects as you come in and out of the show buildings and finally face to face with a giant squid.

    Little Mermaid or Aquatopia: With Little Mermaid being built in DCA I would move the Aquatopia into the old Motor Boat Cruise area.

    Discovery Mountain / Fire Mountain / Mysterious Mountain: Same exact theme as the TDS attraction, but with a longer track layout. I even recommend using some of the existing Peoplemover track layout.
    So the attractione will board in the new land but you will tour through Tomorrowland area before your journey to the center of the earth and come face to face with the fire monster.
    Oh, yeah, thanks for pointing that out MistaDee.
    I was looking for an attraction for Toontown, not several attractions to replace the toontown area.

    ^ Okay, good idea! I'll probably do that when I make the voting thread. Right now, I pretty much have them on the first post just so I don't lose them and have to look through the pages by the time I make the voting thread.

    Disney Princess great concept for a thread. On the first post maybe you could bold the words like Prompt, Rules, etc so its easier to distinguish for people and put ------ under each entry to separate those who enter one. Just some ideas for the first post. Again good job on the thread.

    Re: MICKEY AND THE BEANSTALK

    Concept art for scenes 1 and 3 are done.....can you believe I have no formal training in art

    Mickey and the Beanstalk:

    QUEUE; the attraction really begins in the queue itself where we see the forlorn cow belonging to Mickey, Goofy and Donald. Our line goes around their dilapadated home where if we peak inside the windows we catch a glimpse of them sitting around the dinnerless table.



    RIDE VEHICLES; the vehicles are suspended from an overheaad track similar to Peter Pan except in this case there are 3 rows of seats with a total capacity of 10 guests. The vehicles are mostly green with brown trim and look vaguely like a giant bean sprout.

    SCENE 1; in the first scene our ride seemingly goes up and up and up as the ground appears to get further and further away until we pass thru the clouds themselves.





    SCENE 2; approaching the Giant Castle in the distance we witness Mickey and friends get attacked by huge dragonflies.

    SCENE 3; The tiny visitors from Happy Valley make themselves at home and feast on the Giants dinner table.



    SCENE 4; With the harp playing a lullaby Willie is drifting off to sleep and Mickey and gang are making their escape...just as our vehicles pass in front of the giants face his eyes shoot open!

    SCENE 5; Rapidly our ride vehicles decend the beanstalk in a full out race to the bottom.

    GIFT SHOP: The gift shop will have one distict feature, a roof that periodically gets lifted up as everyones favorite Giant, Willie peaks inside
