    You mean like this:





    Original artwork for the Living Seas pavilion .. which probably dates around 1978,1979.

    Apparently ... too ambitious. And if it was too ambitious then .. imagine their reaction to such an idea today?

    " IT HAS TO BE MARKETED TO A POPULAR TOON! "

    Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

      Why don't they just make the whole area from the submarine lagoon to the Motor Boat Cruise lagoon into a new land, based on the oceans? Like Aqualand or LivingSeas or something. Make Tomorrowland just be the area with the buildings. Make the ocean-based area like a condensed version of DisneySea, or the Living Seas, with several water-based rides and one major E-ticket, possibly a volcano with a roller coaster in it, that also has an underwater section going through a glass tube. It's OK for a landmark like the volcano to be visible from outside the park. The Monorail and Peoplemover could still travel above the new Aqualand, they wouldn't interfere with anything. And they could just move Autopia over to the new Carsland in DCA. Autopia could fit in almost anywhere.

        But you can't mess with a Walt attraction.

        Plus it, maybe, but don't destroy it and put the concept somewhere else.

          It's located here, about half way through:

          haha "Harvard Blvd"?

            What you don't know .. is the company actually came close to doing something on that level. As a WDI-Anaheim imagineer told me of plans they had in the late 80s.

            There must be artwork of such an idea where the entire North/East quadrant of DL would have been wiped out .. with a massive change like we couldn't imagine.

            Well ... I'm hoping something happens in the future .. because there's nothing about this area that represents anything futuristic anymore. Subs have been rendered a "Fantasyland" type experience. Autopia futuristic? Yeah, right. Motor Boat Cruise area still closed since the boats "left dock" in 1992. Almost 18 years now.

            I'm not interested in making yet another arm-chair imagineering discussion here. But discuss a practical solution that should be addressed someday ... and remodel the area to be a "transitional" land between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. An "aqua" land would fit the bill ... as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage sits in the middle of both lands ... with an "aqua" type theming partially already there.

            They need to continue it ... and make the area more cohesive with a uniform theme that takes it from Motor Boat Cruise area ... to Tomorrowland RailRoad station.

                Well, there were several "Walt" attractions that have come and gone. What would you call Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland, along with the original "Rocket to the Moon" or House of the Future?

                Walt also believed in progress.

                Do we hold on to our feelings of nostalgia and hold Tomorrowland back from progressing?

                  Re: What's the next E-Ticket attraction for Disneyland park?

                  But they have messed with Walt attractions... Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland, Adventure Thru Inner Space, Skyway, Motor Boat Cruise, Flying Saucers, Flight to the Moon, Circle-Vision 360, Skull Rock, Keel Boats, Conestoga Wagons, Pack Mules, Indian Village, etc.

                  Anyway, they could move Autopia over to the new Carsland if they wanted to. They would still have Autopia so nobody could really complain. They could make an entire new land in the area shaded (purposely) in aqua:



                  They could even consider "it's a small world" to be part of the new land, since it is a boat ride on water and it is a "voyage around the world." The new oceanic-based land could be relatively economical, since the lagoons are already there, and they would simply need to add appropriate attractions. They would have to enlarge the lagoons or connect them together, and/or remove the roof off of the submarine's underground show building. But they could hold several attractions, sharing the same real estate in the classic Walt tradition. For example, a ride on the water's surface, like Aquatopia at Tokyo, or some other boat ride, a volcano at the northeastern corner, with a roller coaster or other thrill ride through it (and also the Disneyland Railroad passes through the volcano, adding to its show). An omnimover ride through glass tunnels under the water, and a walk-through similar to the Monterey Bay aquarium (below). A water show at night more like a volcanic eruption and fire effects, nothing like World of Color. Add a restaurant and souvenir shop and you've got your new land all themed-out. A ninth land for the park without having to buy more real estate.

                    House of the Future was essentially a temporary walk-through exhibit that overstayed its welcome, not a major attraction. And I honestly don't think the Mine Train should have ever been torn out, and agree with Bob about the status of BTMRR, but that's another topic.

                    But I think your example of Rocket To The Moon is probably the one that irks me the most about the broken Tomorowland of today. The general concept of the attraction had always existed in the park until the closure of Mission To Mars, and was simply updated several times.

                    I'm not one to speculate what Walt would have done, but I really don't think he would have torn out the only attraction dealing with spaceflight, hard science and the exploration/colonization of other planets and replaced it with a pizza restaurant. That's not progress.

                      When it opened in 1957 ... it was considered a staple Tomorrowland attraction.

                      You can say "temporary exhibit that overstayed it's welcome" to:

                      * Crane Bathroom of Tomorrow
                      * Dutch Boy Color Gallery
                      * Kaiser Hall of Aluminum Fame

                      ... just to name a few.

                      But there was nothing temporary about House of the Future ... as it was a fixture to DL for an entire decade.

                      Not that we are arguing any list of other attractions.

                      It's people holding on to Autopia in a land that needs to progress that I find unnerving.

                      If there's a group of people who hold extremely tight to their NOSTALGIC feelings and memories of Disneyland .. it's here in these sites from here, to Laughingplace.com, Mouseinfo, etc.

                      Main Street USA, Adventureland, New Orleans Square, Critter Country, Frontierland, and Fantasyland are lands where NOSTALGIA has it's rightful place.

                      Tomorrowland is the one land that is anything BUT nostalgic.

                      Nostalgia is reference to things from the past.

                      Since when is Tomorrowland suppose to be a land holding on to the past?

                      And Autopia .. IS an attraction that is routed into the past.

                      We have 2010 model cars rolling off assembly lines soon. Meanwhile the Autopia line up of vehicles are from 1999/2000. Sound like lawnmowers.

                      If Autopia isn't Todayland ... it's actually more Yesterdayland.

                              It may not have been entirely temporary, but I think the only reason it stayed around for so long was the fact that it took up such a small area of space and was pretty popular for those type of exhibits.. Once Monsanto had another attraction sponsorship in the form of ATIS, House of the Future was gutted pretty quickly.

                              It's people holding on to Autopia in a land that needs to progress that I find unnerving.
                              Transportation is still a compelling aspect of technology and society, and the 21st century will likely be witness to a number of advances and upheavals in its development. The attraction as it stands is outdated, but only in its technology.

                              Disney is in a wonderful place to make a statement about the future of transportation, and instead has an attraction that resembles any common freeway and presents visitors with the wonderful smell of gasoline fumes. Conceptually Autopia is still very relevant, and the fantasy of being behind the wheel will always appeal to children.
