  • [Idea] Armchair Imagineering: DCA Phase 2 Ideas

    This will have ideas I didn't mention and some from other threads I did. Enjoy.

    Buena Vista Street:
    nothing

    Golden State:
    - Soarin' Over California, improve the video to not have the scene skips. Just have like go into the clouds then drop into the next scene.
    - Have Condor Flats become part of Grizzly Park, and retheme the area.
    - Grizzly River Run, add AA bears to the ride.
    - Add the Country Bear Jamboree along the pathway from Soarin' to GRR
    - The California Zepher Railway, the parks new transportation around the park. Two side by side tracks that stop in here, PP, and Hollywoodland. Includes two full size diesel trains (looking exactly like the CZ from Sunshine Plaza). The track combines at Hollwoodland and here into one track, but PP's station would be the two tracks and go through the Grand Californian Hotel to get to PP.

    Carsland:
    - Wheel Well Diner, have the back of the rockwork facing PP become the restraunt from Cars 2 and have a view of both Carsland and PP. The enterance would be from the Pacific Wharf enterance of Carsland.
    - Maters Carstoon Spin, a parody of Roger Rabbit at DL, where you go through the different adventures Mater had in his Tall Tales. Would use part of Bugsland.

    Paradise Pier:
    - Oswald's Pierside Flyers, a GZ replacement. Themed to the Ocean Hoppers cartoon short
    - enclose CS's queue, loading area, and the tubes along the ride
    - Polo Team Carousel, to add a victorian themed building onto King Triton's Carousel and to a play value to it (a stick will hang down from the horse and as the ride progresses, balls will go through a maze to each player's stick)
    - Villain's Lair, an indoor water coaster themed to the Disney Villains, that tells the story of the villains trying to capture Mickey and steal his magic. It would feature a splash into an extended part of the bay, and uses part of the Maliboomer site and the area behind it (and TSMM). Would be the spook house of the pier.
    - Crush's EACoaster, a GSS replacement. Uses the GSS area plus a small portion of the hotel. The vehicles would be like WDS's and will load 4 "shells" to increase capacity. Exterior would use more rockwork than WDS, and modeled after the Dragon Gorge ride (like LM, but with rockwork intead of the building).
    - redo the shops behind MFW to be in-theme with the area.
    - The California Zepher Railway, the parks new transportation around the park. The second station, be right next to CS.

    Hollywoodland:
    - Camera Crew Coaster, an indoor spinning coaster that will be modeled after Primeval Whirl. The ride would include different props from different types of movies (a chain lift up a pyramid ski lift, Hollywood sign made of donuts, Indy boulder finally scene that takes you picture). To be in Millionare building.
    - Mickey's Philharmagic, a Muppet Vision replacement. The exterior would be modeled after an old, 30's LA theater building. Would use the TV's for a preshow. The ride would have different host and different songs/scenes.t
    - Toon Studio Tour. From my other thread. Would be behind Aladdin, but you enter next to ToT.
    - Monsters Inc. Ride and Go Seek. Update the exterior to look like the Monsters Inc. building w/o the current facade, and update the AA's and their dialogue. The ride vehicles would be like TDL's. The track would be the same, but the scenes would be barely lit.
    - The House of Mouse. A restraunt to replace the current Flynn's Arcade. Would look exactly like the building from the TV show, both inside and out.
    - Dick Tracy's Crime Stoppers. The unbuilt E-Ticket dark EMV ride, to be between the House of Mouse and and MI.
    - The Backlot Studio Tour. Uses the area behind Carsland. Would include scenes from famous movies, a Hoth Battle and a Tatooine streets (featuring a sand storm) scenes from Star Wars, a Big City Set leading up to a projected TRON sequence, Catastrophy Canyon, and a Raiders of the Lost Ark temple scene.
    - Backstage w/ Magician Mickey, a redon version of the one in WDW. To be next to Mickey's Philharmagic.
    - Goofy's Candy Emporium. A candy shop for all of Goofy's candy to be bought. Back-to-back with Flynn's Arcade. Taking up the facade.
    - redo the Hyperion Theater's queue to be enclosed, and redo the the exterior facing the street.
    - The California Zepher Railway, the parks new transportation around the park. The station would be next to the RCT warehouse. The building would look like an 30's train station.

      I don't think there is nearly as much room in DCA as you think there is. I don't mean to be rude, but sometimes, while Armchair Imagineering is fun, you need to be realistic. You are very creative, so if you set some boundaries with attractions, I'm sure you could come up with some excellent additions.

        I know DLR doesn't have that much room. But who says it couldn't expand its property. I keep a balance of the creativity and realisticness of my projects, but I mostly care for the creativity. Google Earth lets me see the land I work with and I've see alot of unused area in DCA. Like Villains Lair, for Ex, it would use up the area behind CS and TSMM (There's alot of room there for expansion).

        By the way, thanks for the compliments, it means alot to me. (BTW, are you a Boy or a Girl? just asking)

          Why do you call it "Hollywoodland" yet completely abandon the 1930's theme? The great thing about Hollywoodland that everybody wants is a sense of place and time. You've disrupted that with the loosely-themed indoor coaster, Philarmagic, Flynn's Arcade, Monsters, and Studio Tour.

          I'm not a fan of plastering characters all over the park either.

          And another question: You want realistic bear audio animatronics on GRR yet talking/singing Country Bears in the same land? Or do you want to cartoon-ify Grizzly River Run as well.

          You're creative, but lack direction in what you want the park to achieve. Is the park's name "California" Adventure? Do you feel that you are enhancing the theme? These are all questions an Armchair Imagineer should ask themselves.

            -Great thought on Soarin' for a much-needed change
            -Love the thought of transportation around the park
            -Camera Crew Coaster is looking to be Superstar Limo all over again... too weakly themed, but it would be fun
            -The only way I can see replacing MuppetVision is in the event that The Great Muppet Movie Ride is built. I say add Philharmagic and create the GMMR separate.
            -Remove Flynn's arcade altogether. It doesn't fit the theme and would just take up space (maybe retheme Starcade to Flynn's?). And if you want "Tron" in the parks, either bring back Peoplemover or keep Electronica.
            -Where do you expect to find the room to build a backlot studio tour with catastrophe canyon and sandstorm sequences?

            Great ideas, but the major problems are theming and space constraints. Definitely some solid ideas, though.

                /\ Well.... an old, beaten up arcade wouldn't fit in Tomorrowland now would it.

                - The PM is dead, Alot of people with Disney have official said its coming down .
                - What time period is HL anyway? cause the Flynn's is a 1986 arcade.
                - I expected to build the Studio Tour in the area behind Carsland, the train would travel around it to ToT.
                - CCC was originally an Oswald Trollie spinning coaster, but people didn't seem to like that idea, same with my Muppet Movie ride (don't know why).
                - I know there's room for attractions, with Google Earth. its just a matter of using it. So space isn't an issue.
                - What do you mean that there are "theming" problems? If its about HL, I would like to know the time period it is, would help with my ideas.

                  "Space isn't an issue."

                  Huh? You do realize that lots of that is important backstage equipment/facilities that just can't be removed.

                    Hollywoodland is the 1930's the golden age of Hollywood. A time where people were beamed to... The TWILIGHT ZONE. *zap*. With the new Hollywoodland they're gonna need to get rid of all the cobwebs in the ToT. Flynn's Arcade would fit with the revival of Tomorrowland I'm working on. It would be that you stap into a room on Main Street U.S.A and you see time fly on a screen. A minute later you are in Discover Bay. That way there would be bricks sticking out of the walls. Here it is:

                    Tomorrowland 2055 ATTRACTIONS:

                    Huh? You do realize that lots of that is important backstage equipment/facilities that just can't be removed.
                    They can just put that underground.....

                      Where are you guys seeing space for any of this? There almost no available space for expansion between Main Street and Tomorrowland. Again that's all important backstage facilities. Just because it isn't an area you can walk through doesn't mean it isn't necessary.

                          Well, if we are going to spend millions and millions and millions on putting massive structures under ground, can we please do it for cohesive, brilliantly-designed lands.

                          Discovery Bay in your location completely abandons the old idea. Do you understand the concept behind Discovery Bay? I'm not sure you do. Port Discovery is not the same thing as Discovery Bay. And Discoveryland, while some similarities is not the same as Discovery Bay. Your ideas lack direction and are just implanting old concepts or over seas rides.

                          If Discoveryland is themed to turn of the century, why would there be a Shuttle? The blimp, the original (brilliant) idea was in place for a reason, because it matched the theme.

                          For Journey to the Center of the Earth, you plan on plopping down a volcano in that cramped location? Let's imagine there was room to do this whole Discovery Bay concept you have planned (which there isn't), you would have Space Mountain sharing the skyline with a Volcano in the background. From the Volcanic area, you could see what appears to be a giant space ship. And then from our wonderfully themed, charming Main Street, now has a Volcano looming over the innocent town.

                          Aquatopia does not fit the theme. Even in DisneySea, Journey and Aquatopia are in different lands.

                          Time Machine is a small theater and is only 1 minute long? If it's only 1 minute, why even build it? It end up being nothing more than the length of a commercial.

                          Why take out the Submarines in Tomorrowland just to build a new one across the park?

                          How does 1970's Flynn's Arcade fit in with the world of 2055?

                          Blast-Out seems like a very loosely themed idea.



                          I don't mean to make it seem like I hate your ideas or they are awful, but a good armchair Imagineer considers all these things before even going any further with an idea. Take a step back and refine your idea before posting.

                            Discovery Bay is just a temporary name. It wouldn't be called that. Blast-Out IS a very loosely themed idea... I never said the JttCotE would be in a vlocano for all you no it could be in a rocket ship. I was actually think of it to be connected to Space Mountain and on top of the Disneyland Railroad diorama of the Grand Canyon. Aquatopia was also a loose idea. The readon to move the submarine is so it could be turned into Robin Hood's Adventure in Fantasyland. What about Atlantis? What did you think of that idea. Can you also share some of your own ideas? I would liek to see them to get a realistic view.

                              You know this is for Phase 2 of DCA'S expansion, right. There are some OK ideas for Tomorrowland (no effence), but they should be on the Tomorrowland expansion thread (who ever did that). I'll make another thread so you can move it over, if you want.

                              I know that. I'm just saying that there's open land, w/ nothing on it, that could be used for more expansion.
