    I agree. A very expensive carnival ride.

    Tomorrowland: I would bring back people mover and Skyway, remove HISTA and the theather it plays in. Build new Adventure thru inner space where Innoventions is in a whole new building for the ride. Bring Mission Space where mission to Mars was.

    Adventureland: Bring back Tahitian Terrace and have on ride photo on Indiana Jones where you get to the boulder.

    Critter Country: Improve the pooh ride like so it is like the one at Toyko Disneyland

    California Adventure: Put Country Bear Jamboree in Grizzy mountain and Rebuild the entry for the Hyperion thearther so that there was a lobby and you waited there insteed of waiting outside

    Put people movers in the car park and it they take you to the front entrace

    Knowing you and your obsession for Halloween, I was expecting you to propose something totally different.

    Why are the trams a problem to you??

    I would completely change Innoventions into a dark ride about the imagination with Ludwig Von Drake. Sort of like another take on The Imagination Pavillion in Epcot.

    first things first;

    GOODBYE TRAMS
    .

    then i would just completley close down tomorrowland and invite any die hard disneyland fans to gather in a meeting room to discuss a new design for it. it should be themed in 2100. there should be a gag museum that we walk through upon entrance that broadcasts modern day technology as things of the past. don't take that seriously.

    DCA or Disneyland: add china town somewhere in the far future, whether it's next to mainstreet or in that triangle of space in between Carsland and PP. Probably the last thing I would add to the park before I retire.

    Frontierland: Cowboy or Zorro stage show, which depends on location either at Rancho del Zoccalo or big area behind petting zoo.

    Adventureland: bring back Tahitian Terrace (even though I never experienced it for myself).

    Fantasyland: BATB E-ticket darkride, and bring back to the skyway to Tomorrowland, maybe turn that empty lake area inbetween Alice and Small world into a Fantasia gardens area.

    Toontown:like wally mentioned, add a second path on the far side because the dead end is unappealing. Bring back Jolly Trolley

    Tomorrowland: so much is wrong, but just summarizing, bring back retro-futuristic white and glass everything, bring back people mover in a pod-like form, bring back Carousal of progress, electric Autopia. Tron dark arcade replaces stacade, and an E-Ticket (no idea which), to replace the Theater. Oh, and later turn Nemo into 20k in about 10 years.

    Critter Country: like mentioned before, add bathroom at the end of Critter Country, and have fireplace stations where they sell hot cocoa and hot pastries to cold and wet people from Splash mtn (NOT MY IDEA, but a genius's on this site whom i don't remember their name, but I would add it if I controlled the DLR)

    Golden State: add mine Coaster in and around mountain, add hiking trails and abandoned gold mines to explore the grounds, and reincarnate Country bear Jamboree into the area.

    I dunno, If it were me, I would be upset at the fact that I could not hop and do what I wanted to do. In my opinion, the later hours of the stay would just be filled with line-ups and frustration instead of freedom and fun.

    • MAIN STREET- per Disneyland Paris, covered walkways behind the shops for guests. Disneyland is small and Main Street is perpetually congested. Multiple parades followed by fireworks makes it almost completely unnavigatable forcing Disney to funnel guests through unsightly backstage areas. I would remedy this.
    • ADVENTURELAND - Take out the Roxy/Quicksilver/Billabong stuff and move the fruit and edibles over there. There is plenty of room in Downtdown Disney for that stuff. Use the freed up space for stroller parking. Re-open the Tahitian Terrace and sell decent food with live entertainment.
    • NEW ORLEANS SQUARE- probably leave it alone for now
    • CRITTER COUNTRY- A someone else mentioned. Install a restroom by Pooh Corner. It's an exit point for Splash, at a dead-end in the park, and by a major Meet n' Greet for little ones. Plus the nearest is downstairs in Hungry Bear which only seasoned APs can find. Return the Country Bear Jamboree, it'll be a tight squeeze, but I think it could co-exist with Pooh.
    • FRONTIERLAND- Festival Arena. Between that and the Big Thunder Barbeque is a large swath of unused land that could house either a cool show or a decent C-Ticket attraction at an otherwise desolate corner of the park. Let the Imagineers think of what to make, just no Woody's Roundup. I love Toy Story...but enough.
    • FANTASYLAND- Expand, expand. Fantasyland Theater is underutiziled, the Princess Meet n' Greet can make do with far less space. The leftover could turn into another Fantasyland Dark Ride. Beauty and the Beast would be an excellent property to use. Next create a 2nd walkway that leads into Toontown so that it is no longer a dead-end. Utilize the snow machines from Christmas time to make the Matterhorn Bobsleds snow at regular intervals.
    • MICKEY'S TOONTOWN- Ugh. Rip out Chip n' Dale's treehouse, Gadget's Go-Coaster and Donald's Boat. They are all wastes of spaces. Put in a Fab 5 Dark ride as a replacement. Since the Jolly Trolley won't be coming back, fill in the tracks so strollers and wheelchairs don't get unncessarily stuck in the tracks.
    • TOMORROWLAND- This goes without saying, but..Bring Back the PeopleMover. It needs to return. Starcade is an embarassment, just rip it out. In the downstairs area but a kiddie play area like Goofy's over in Toontown. There isn't much to do for little ones in this section of the park and it will let parents watch 'em while their teens take a spin on Space Mountain rather than being forced to sit on a bench and look at Cosmic Waves. And seriously, put the Astro Orbitor back where is should be and rip out those silly rocks. They just clog the entryway, and the attraction would be so much cooler.

    but I supose that My idea isnt right either but there really is no real good solution to the over crowding due to APs are there?
    Drop all AP's except Premium and Deluxe.

    ^I wouldn't get rid of the parkhopping options, or make the third and fourth day rules as suggested. That would be a nightmare to enforce and the complaints would be terrible. Why not just make DCA good enough to hold a crowd instead of using ticketing policies to hold guests in it, hurting their experiance?

    Horrible, horrible idea. What happens for an AP like me who lives in Northern California, and when I am fortunate to be in the area, I go out of my way to find the time and make a trip to Disneyland then be denied to go in because their were too many local AP's in the park already. Bad bad solution.

    Another idea that does not work is capping the number of AP's sold. Not smart because you would be stopping paying customers. The better solution is to raise the AP level and eliminate some of them so that you still have plenty of customers who are willing to pay but drop off the ones who just buy them so they can visit one or two extra times a year. The AP's should be equivalent of buying 6 1-Day, 1-Park tickets.

    Another way to balance the crowds would be to eliminate 1 and 2 day park hoppers (not now, but when DCA can easily stand alone). Then there will be things that guests desire to do at DCA, and have to spend an entire day there to experience it. Disneyland guests would still come. But 1 and 2 day tickets should not offer park hoppers. 3 and 4 day tickets should allow park hopping on their 3rd and 4th days. This would encourage more crowds to DCA. Especially if it was put into affect in time for Carsland and Carsland was heavily marketed.

    It's pretty rude to just post a laughing smiley at my post of my ideas. At least post some criticism and add to the topic at hand.
