    Expedition Everest at DCA.

    Although keeping with the rigid California theme it will be renamed Expedition Mount Baldy.

    You're at 122 posts, I'm at almost 19K, which is scary.

    But one thing I can tell you, without even consulting Leota, is this is the running argument of this site.

    Some people would rather wait twice as long or more and have half or less new attractions added if they were all original, and unique to DLR.

    Others see the economics behind spreading development costs of new E ticket attractions between two or more resorts, thereby reducing the cost to deliver the final product (ie the attraction.)

    So I see it as a matter of economics. Twice or more as many copied or cloned concepts opening at twice the rate, because they are sharing development costs for a similar or identical version in Florida, Asia or Europe? Or do we hold out for a slower growth in new attractions, which aren't being developed anywhere else?

    Because the way I see it, even if DLR pays 100% of the development costs and creates a "unique" attraction, usually there's only a limited window before any of the other resorts can copy it. So what's the point?

    And unless you're a small subset of the superfans who frequent all of the world's Disney parks, it's not critical to me that I be able to trot around the globe in search of different Disney attractions. It's a high price to pay for such an elite mystique.
    Bravo CaliforniaAdventurer.

    It's like saying we didn't need the Haunted Mansion because Adventures Through Innerspace already had the omnimovers.
    That is one of the main reasons why Rock N' Roller Coaster
    was turned down. Also, Rock N' Roller Coaster would have
    taken up too much space in the Backlot.


    And it's a bit unfair to compare Adventure through Inner Space with
    The Haunted Mansion.

    Can I just get WestCOT?

    But seriously, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. It would actually make sense in Hollywood Pictures Backlot as it is now. Perhaps not after the retheme...but then again it fits in on Sunset Boulevard which has an early 20th century theme as well.

    I'd also say some attractions which Disneyland used to have that still exist at WDW...Country Bears, Peoplemover, and CircleVision.

    Don't give up the battle you might win.

    Main Street Haunted Hotel from HKDL. Hooray for controversy!

    California Screamin' already uses that coaster's launch sequence.

    Actively trying to suppress and forget that anything whatsoever related to Star Wars or even George Lucas or Steven Spielberg for that matter, is, or was ever, located on any Disney-owned property.

    I haven't been to any other Disney park, just viewed some videos, but I would like to see Alien Encounter at Disneyland. I know Stitch replaced this, but after seeing the video to this I really wanted to go on it badly!! Too bad it's gone!!

    Mystic Manor!
    i would also love to see the "Discovery Bay" concept located where the pacific warf is currently. I think it would fit perfectly.

    I don't know where it would fit, but Journey to the Center of the Earth would be awesome.

    I'd also like to see 20,000 leagues under the sea replace FNSV.
