  • [Fun] Next Disneyland Expansion?

    With all the rumor floating round about possible major (like whole land upgrades) expansions. Where would the great people of Micechat like to see Disney put their efforts next. Would you like to see a Frontierland, Tomorrowland, Toon Town, or Critter Country expansion. What seems to need the most work these days?

    They should do something about Fantasyland station, it's cool to see it when you never got to ride the skyway, but it takes up space

      I feel like Tomorrowland needs it the most. Frontierland hasn't gotten anything in a long time, but it doesn't really need anything. It's small, but it's a great land.

        I REALLY want Frontierland to be expanded, but the way i see it, disney won't do anything to Frontierland until Lone Ranger is released. That or the OZ movie, both released next year. If they just decide to rope off the Autopia/Subs area of Tomorrowland, they could announce the expansion at this year's D23 and have the bulldozers in by next summer. I'm HOPING for a Frontierland expansion first, but I'm suspecting something to be announced for Tomorrowland relatively soon.

          I vote Tomorrowland x 1000. It's looking really bad in that area and desperately needs a complete makeover.

              Hmm yeah... Tommrowland - brought back Captain EO, re-made star tours, Nemo overlay to the subs, rehabbed back to original the Tomorrowland terrace stage, seem to remember the food counters at the terrace being under construction, Astro Blasters is still a somewhat new ride to me, monorail upgrades.... seems like it's been slowly getting a lot of love. Would I love to see peoplemover come back? You bet! Would I love to see innoventions turned into an E ticket ride? Heck YA! Why is everyone like, oh yeah Tomorrowland needs to be totally revamped? What?

              I'm voting for a Frontierland expansion. I would love to see something done with all that awesome space back there that used to be festival of fools. I love Frontierland the way it is but I want MORE of it!!=)

              Edit post: Ok actually, I hate astro-orbitors looking huge and obnoxious at the entrance to Tomorrowland and would be all for them moving it back on top of the old rocket rods platform where it belongs.

                The problem with Tomorrowland is that instead of getting DCA 2.0 style/ quality upgrades it (other than Star Tours 2.0) it has got quick fixes like Buzz, Nemo, and House of the future (or whatever that thing in Innoventions is called). Tomorrowland 1998 was promoted as a Tomorrowland 1967 style complete Tomorrowland redo... It wasn't. No new buildings were constructed, no new areas were opened up for expansion, no new vision was given. All we got was a relocated/ rethemed rockets, new color scheme, loss of circle vision as an attraction, a 3D movie replacement, repurposed CoP theater building for a cheap consumer electronics show, and a slightly faster moving version of the people mover. Yes Tomorrowland has got "love" (if you can call it that) but none of the additions created truly new experiences (except Buzz which was done cheaply using the existing building).

                Half *** fixes for Tomorrowland '98 screw ups included bringing back the 3D movie (that was replaced because of lack of crowd in the '90's), bringing back the subs with an overlay, a revamp for Star Tours, and a "new" monorail (that didn't even fit the rail when it was first put on the rail if I remember correctly). That's a lot of stuff for one land, but none of it actually confronted the problem that Tomorrowland has had since the '90's. Tomorrowland has architecturally looked exactly the same since 1971! Facades have change, paint schemes have changed, a few exteriors have had facelifts, but nothing major has been constructed since Space Mountain! A land based on the future should have unique architecture. When the architecture remains the same as the architecture from 1967, it's impossible for the land to truly feel futuristic. If WDI is serious about a DCA 2.0 revamp of Tomorrowland, they need to build new structures, new rides, new experiences, and with new architecture and landscaping. This is exactly why I'm all for the removal of autopia, subs, and Innoventions. All of them have been repurposed from original rides/ buildings. Frontierland works in its current form since it still has breathtaking views and theme fitting architecture/ experiences. Tomorrowland does not work since (like the half *** additions to DCA 1.0) the additions over the years have not fixed the route of the problem.

                  There really is not much that can be done with the space that the old skyway station sits on. The area is really not that big. It's basically a mound of dirt and part of it sits on top of a Avery large tunnel that contains a necessary access road from backstage to frontier land

                    I thought it was the biggest land in the park...

                      I wouldn't mind a ride that stretches through the old Skyway Station place like a beauty and the beast ride where you climb the steps towards beast's castle and enter through a gate into the ride platform and the ride would be on the other side where the Fantasyland Theatre over extends into backstage, it would be ominous, and fit the theme of Storybook land if they built a castle similar to the one in New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom.

                        OMG, I would love that SOOO much...

                        On the topic at hand, wouldn't it make more sense to create more offerings in Frontierland before walling off most (if not all) of Tomorrowland?

                          I really think something should be added to Frontierland before TL gets any major work as mentioned in the above post.

                          That is how I would want it to happen. I also feel that the FL Theater will become Frontierland via a large-ish expansion.

                          As much as I want TL to get a major over-haul, I would like it done in the "proper" order. I think this order would be best since Frontierland can expand, and TL pretty much cannot (ok, maybe southward ...but not by much.)

                          I would have even more respect for DL if they would commit to a movie themed attraction (E ticket) before it was released. Kinda like USH did for Jurassic Park Ride. I dunno if DL has ever done this... it would make my decade if they did it for LR or something else coming out in the next 1-3 yrs.
