    Re: "a bug's land"

    I love "Its tough to be a bug," I dont do the kiddie rides but The kids do and it keeps them there, You always see stroller row, full, Love that! I remember when DCA opened, Bugs were everywhere, It was great, I still have some cool bugs pins from the opening. Sorry but I agree to Disagree, It hurts nothing

      It's a very well themed land for the younger ones that takes up very little space. If they're going to tear it down it better be for a good reason

        Re: "a bug's land"

        I want it to go as well.


        But it's not important on my list as I'd rather see other things done first, as Bugsland is at least a beautiful land.

Because ever since they opened the walkway between bugs land and TOT courtyard the place is busy and now is even more busy since it also connects to Carsland. The attractions in this small land always have a decent size queue and the area is not really big enough to do much else with it anyway. Why demolish three minor attractions when nothing really significant can be built there.


          What the land needs is a bit of reconfiguration starting with the removal of the huge marquee and the relocation of the ITTBAB entrance and exit. Once that is done then the large unused fast pass machine area could be used properly for something else. Eventually RSR will not need two fast pass distribution areas.
          Last Wednesday and I looked at the entrance at about noon. I think that people were not going in there because of Cars Land being right next door with new rides. I sure WDI could fit an D or E ticket attraction that serves as a good transition from Buena VIsta Street to Cars Land.

            It's no surprise that the overwhelming majority opinion on this forum about bug's land is that it should close when many of us don't have young children to look after and entertain...When I have a kid and they're too scared to go on attractions like Pirates or even the Fun Wheel, I'm going to get them started with Flik's Flyers and the Tuck and Roll ride.

              yeah, as someone recently pointed out to me on this subject, not much else for the li'l ones at DCA. They need this land.

                At first, I was going to say "There IS no Bugs Land - a single ride is not a land" but I forgot Flik's Fun Fair was considered part of the land! Oops.

                Yeah, it's actually really nice for kids. Well themed and immersive and shady for hot days. It looks particularly nice at night. As adults we may think the rides are terrible (ok, they sort of are) but as kids rides go, they're a nice, clean step up from the county fair.

                  I think the reason I strongly dislike this land is because it is too predictable.
                  Yes, it is completely fine to have a little kids area in a theme park.
                  *Cough* fantasyland dark rides, which are actually respectable and still fun for all ages.
                  Bugsland is not fun imo unless you are under 6.
                  It needs more dark rides to be up to par imo, but the land itself is nicely immersive and themed.

                    It is enjoyable to those over 6, especially if you have kids and get the bonus of enjoying it with them and seeing their eyes light up as they enjoy the attractions.

                    I think that if they would have just enclosed the train, it would have had more of a dark ride feel to it. Some additional animatronics would have been nice on that, too.

                      I have no problem that the place is for kids. I understand people want a land for little kids, but it can be done much better and with much more relevance to the overall park.

                      My problems mainly relate to THEME: Sure the land is well done overall, but the rides themselves are simply off-the-shelve rides with simple overlays. Do kids like the rides? Yes. Do kids like rides at the fair? Yes. Do kids like Peter Pan? Yes. Stop arguing that kids like it. There are better ways to design a land that kids will like. The rides themselves are only marginally better than the Sesame Street area at Sea World. I know kids who loved the Orange Stinger... just because little kids like something it does not get a free pass and we do not have to leave it alone. "Kids like it" is not the Disney standard. Story, theme and relevance are.

                      Also the land has nothing to do with California, period. It was a quick, cheap fix that clearly was not given enough thought in the scope of the park.

                      Yes DCA needs rich environments... but more than anything it needs rich environments that relate to California. I could built and awesome land in Disneyland Park themed to Thor's home planet. And it would be awesome, and the theme would fully engulf guests. How many people would be for that? 1% of you? Why?... Because it doesn't fit in Disneyland? Then why does "a bug's land" fit in DCA?

                      We should not have to settle for off-the-shelve rides redressed so as to still be irrelevant within the scope of their larger setting. Yes little kids need a space... but it does not have to be "a bug's land".
                      Disneyland Wooooh!

                        That would be an awesome Fantasyland expansion. Maybe where the current theater is or in the Motorboat area. A Norse god would totally fit into the world of fantasy.

                          Bugs Land is great. I will even dare say does a better job of being immersive themed enviroment then cars land. (Take the mountain range away).

                          I will disagree with those who are saying they don't see many people in it, because I always see it busy. (There may be a slight dent in it right now due to Cars Land but that will even out more).

                          I agree it could benefit of becoming more of a "land" by adding a food service or merchandise shop. It could even use a dark ride.

                          One thing for sure though, they need to get rid of the Chew Chew train... That's just lame. It drives in a small circle with nothing special.

                            Yeah i think most of the rides could use a little more flavor but overall the land is amazingly themed, just needs a little help to stand on it's own.

                              bugs land is too flat and the ride times need to be doubled. I think they could add a ride to the existing area if they elevated it. I love when one ride goes over another, it's a great use of space and it improves each ride. They could even make an underground ride? Like an ant ride that uses the same technology the Seven Dwarves Mine Ride will have

                                Heimlichs chew chew train has a great recorded spiel, its funny and it is a good family ride. the tuck and roll drive em buggies are super fun, with the sounds they make adding to the fun, another great family ride it's tuff to be a bug is a really nice attraction its very well done and its exciting. so the land has some great things to offer, while we are in bugs land we also do the lady bug boogie, and the flicks flyers. All in all it is a great area for anyone who visits. everyone is different and some people wont like certain areas of the park. this seems to not be an area of unanimous hate for most people. cant compare it to innoventions.
