    haha, it could be like a big glass room like in the air-ports!

    I always see alot of people smoking anywhere, and it is quite annoying. Disney is a little too lackadasical with their rules.

    Like there is a smoke room in NOS on the outer edge and another one in TL by the edge of the park and one just off main street that takes you a little bit back stage so that the Idea is nobody ever sees you smoke or has to smell you do it that way everybody wins
    That's a good idea! I'd be fine with it as long as the smoke doesn't leave and enter other buildings through the vents or we aren't gagged by smoke when the door opens

    1. Bring back the people mover.
    2. Re-do all of Tomorrowland. I would make Space Mt go upside down like DLP.
    3. Improve the food.
    4.Bring back the great shopping in the parks like it was in the 80's and 90's. No more this Disney Parks stuff. More park pacific items, more high end items(for the collectors) and each store needs different items.
    5. Something needs to happen with crowd control. I would redo the back stage area that is right behind the main street stores, making that area walkways for guest to get in and out of the park during high traffic times on main street. Not sure how i would fix Fantasmic traffic.

    Something seems unjust about that scenario.
    But why wouldnt those people get fastpasses? You just use your parkhopper ticket to get a fastpass...

    Re: If you ran the DLR...

    Add some higher capacity rides, starting with tomorrowland: plectu's fantastic galactic revue replaces Innoventions with top level area with some sort of exhibit, carousel theatre, great capacity and people eater. Bring back updated people mover type thing with great capacity. That flying saucer thing under the Space Mountain with a light show. Restaurant (with actual good food) replaces star-waste of space with all those video games you can find anywhere else-cade; overlooking the flying saucers. Alien Encounter replaces Pizza Port, and I give no care about any "too scary for little 7 year olds" crap. If Disneyland Anaheim can pull of Ghost Galaxy, it can pull of Alien Encounter which looks to be an AMAZING ride btw--non movie based and an excellent use of the sound technology.

    Replace pooh w/ pooh's hunny hunt. build a couple new rides in the fantasy fair, big thunder ranch, and (NOW DEMOLISHED) Toon Town (but I will take a giant crane and pick the Roger Rabbit ride up and plop it down in the Muppits theatre in DCA, and move the Muppets to Aladdin Theatre, while making it the "GREAT MUPPETS MOVIE RIDE).

    Update Indiana Jones; same scale refurb. as the size of the HM refurb at Disney world, new scenes, etc.
    Change the Tarzan tree house to Jungle Book Kind Loui Tree House.

    Bring back Taihitan Terrace in the Aladdin thing.

    [BTW-is it just me, or is Aladdin represented WAY to much in Disney parks? and to think some people want a Aladdin dark ride to replace toad and an aladdin castle]

    oh, and with all these new high capacity rides there should be no need for Fastpass. The AP system which I feel is ingenius will stay the same under my leadership. Survival of the wittiest! (and those who no the park the best, if a tourist doesn't no better, so be it! :P

    I would say no more fast pass at all would be the fair way to do it.
    I Have never used one ever because It makes me feal guilty to use one and belive that it should either not be used at all or pay extra for it thats it.

    I like using the system because it allows me to ride rides at different times without waiting 45 minutes to 2 hours for a ride. If Fastpass were eliminated; for me I wouldn't go as often as I used too. With an A/P you use the system to your advantage so if you only have a couple of hours; you can get everything done.

    Also if they took down FP, would it decrease line times because I guess the FP flow is cutoff.

    Re: If you ran the DLR...

    Alright, lets get serious.

    Overall Operations
    1
    I would rework the AP system to the tierd format that I suggested earlier, with cheaper AP's allowing visits two days a week, and the most expensive allowing visits every day but going for $800-1000. This way, you could limit the number of people visiting on any given day by giving out APs for certain weekdays in set ammounts, while still allowing the true fans to visit as much as they want. Pricewise this also lets everybody enjoy the magic no matter what their financial situation, while charging the right ammount for the ammount people can visit.

    2
    I would comission the addition of two lengthy and high capacity rides (longer ride time and higher capacity means more people are on it longer) to increase the capacity of Disneyland. One ride would be behind Frontierland, and the other in the Moterboat Lagoon area,

    3
    Maitinance and Sanitation would be given a large boost to keep the place sparkliing.

    4
    A new merchandise stratagy would be immediatly developed

    5
    Cusine would be reviewed carefully on criteria such as price and originality. Prices would be mediated.

    6
    Fastpass would be removed

    Rides

    1
    Each ride would be reviewed to increase capacity.


    2 - Tommorowland
    Space Mt. Would be given a launch in the second lift hill (with the effects tunnel)

    A "Downdraft" ride would be installed on top of the PM station, and the AstroOrbiter would be sent to Hong Kong (or the dump)

    For the rest of the ideas, follow the link in my sig, No need to repost it all


    3 Fantasyland

    Peter Pans Flight would be removed and relocated to the old Moterboat lagoon where it could be expanded to better accomodate its popularity

    The Matterhorn would be given a two story queue and the wrap around queues would be removed. (or not used unless it was an extremely busy day)


    4 Toontown

    Toontown would be given a family friendly, high capacity D-E Ticket around where C/D treehouse is extending backstage.

    The area would be given new gags and touched up.


    5 Frontierland

    Frontierland would be given another row of fascades across from the horseshoe theater extending to the Fronterland entrance from the Plaza. Behind them a new restaurant and maybe a stunt show would take place.

    Some sort of WRE would be added to the Ranch area


    6 Adventureland

    Is amazing. Maybe though another study could be done to adress the traffic flow through the area.


    8 NOS




    9 Critter Country

    I dont care to much about WtP, but it could be redone. CBJ would go to DCA so no big deal.

    Splash Mt. Would get a dual flume to increase capacity

    Re: If you ran the DLR...

    OK.. Now I got my ideas...
    For openers I would renovate tomorrowland with a new style only things I would save are the Subs but replace the Nemo projections with projections of REAL undersea life not cartoony ones and a story line closser to the origional and the other thing I would keep is space mountain after an EXTENSIVE Queue re-do.
    the new rides would be a new Idea for the PM track that is a true transportation system and not just a showcase and putting astrorbiter where it should be.
    also new would be an Incredable adventure based ride (where you are shrunk down inside of a submarine and injeced into the bloodstream of someone to save his life by removing a blood clot.)
    and lastly by removing Star Wars and Buzz Lightyear I would use the space where BLAB is for a ride based on Star Trek or just a new kind of a ride where you blast off to space.
    Next comes main Street USA very little here just make the shops individuals again and not all one giant mall and improve the cinema to look like a real theatre and lastley ad more vehicles and horse drawn carrages to main street.
    As far as shopping goes more stuff unique to the area your in and not generic stuff but like if your in new orleans square you will find HM stuff PotC stuff and then shops that you would expect to find in New Orleans and so on and so forth for each land.
    in the Dining Dpt you will find thoughout the land that food would taste better and be made quicker and try to keep the same price at worst it would go up a bit in price.
    Then a elimanation of a land Say Good Bye Toontown and Hello to an expanded Fantasyland and Frontierland the east half would be compleatly redone to fit in with fantasyland with a castle wall surrounding the area to make it look like we are in the castles courtyard with Roger Rabbits CarToon Spin staying you will still have toon town in sorts as a ride and very well done queue.
    Allong with the new fantasyland expansion would be a new Hooks Pirateship Restaraunt and Skull Rock and new themed Station.
    and on the west side of old toon town would be more frontierland wich will try to move as far west as possible to try to meet up with critter country Via a nature Trail.
    next would be the Mine Train through Natures Wilderness which would start in the area where the arena and zoo and all that is and then goes north and east round and back again through the dessert forrest and a few caves (tunnels to get under train tracks) the caves will bring the return of fabulous light watterfalls from the origional and some scenes of Miners looking for gold.
    some scenes of Forests and some of desserts and at a moment comming up to where the River is.
    Now with all this how could you WALK to critter country? the answer is simple there will be a trail through it all that is a strait line pretty much one for going to CC and one for going back if you wish. The Trail would have you walking out of sight in canyons and caves amoung other things to make you nearly invisable to the train ride but at moments vissable enough to see the area and for them to see you (if they care to look)
    in Adventure land there would be little to do just maintain the shops and shows to make sure its all working right.
    In Critter Country there would be a new replacement for Pooh as he gets evicted for something else. Just ANYTHING else that can be dreamed up. A return to the country bear jambouree in the Hungry Bear would be great.
    back in Frontierland a new show would be hapening in the Golden Horseshoe.
    and in Fantasyland there would be NO MORE DISNEY CHARICTERS IN IASW!
    and just to drive the point home that we are under new management a Nightmare Before Cristmass Dark Ride PERMINATLY takes place where the old moter boat cruse was.
    Now to manage the Smokers... Including me...Im going to the old way
    Smoke where you want outside of rides shops and resturants because of this fact
    Smoke by one or two in a large space isnt so bad but you notice it however its avoidable for the most part and likely wont worry about it EVER.
    A LARGE Group however in a small space sucks for everyone tho and makes an entire area unusable and smell bad (even to smokers.)
    umm oh and no more meet n greet zones but rather let the charicters run around and do what they do best and interact with guests Without the constant security but just them having a ball with you!

    I would make the parks much more CHRISTMAS oriented during the season...not "holiday". I would (gradually) take out all FP. I would improve the cleaning and maintenance dept. I would (of course) refurb Tomorrowland. I would improve food quality and prices (of food and everything else.)

    And this is why you should vote for me.
