    Re: What do you think DCA still needs to fix?

    I have to admit Hollywoodland does have some interesting attractions. I love the art building (NOT sure of the name) the one with crush and the other cartoon creations to me it fits very well because it is based on how cartoons are made, I also like the Tower of Terror and fits very well too, Muppets 3D I think is based on movie making (it has been a while) all of these seem to fit well. They are all based on the entertainment industry. The biggest sore thumb for me in the land is Monsters, INc the ride is Ok but I really would love to see something in there that is more movie based. I think an oswald ride in Black in White with 3d elements would work! Also I do love Alladin and maybe another show based attraction would do well being the land is based off entertainment and Hollywood. Maybe one on how movies are made!

      So I already posted a thread with thoughts, but I'll repost them here! I also added some small things.

      Flik's Fun Fair/Golden Gate Bay (I need a better name!)
      Replacing all of Flik's Fun Fair is the San Francisco-themed Golden Gate Bay. There will be a state-of-the-art ride entitled Cale Car Frenzy, using simulator, dark ride, and projector techniques. It's hard to describe in a short sentence, but combine Soarin', Star Tours, and Radiator Springs Racers. The 3D film theatre will make way for a Tiki Room-style show entitled Walt's Chinatown Revue (or an attraction inspired by Alcatraz... Escape From Alcatraz?). Finally, the rest of the land will be put towards Mission Square.

      Mission Square
      Located behind the Tower of Terror (the leftover land from Cars Land), Mission Square will honor the Hispanic heritage of California. It will feature an updated version of the Western River Expedition, as well as an Adventures of Zorro stunt show (with live actors, horses, water, fire, and more!) and a small Three Caballeros dark ride. The rockwork from Cars Land will be fully finished off to help match the area.

      Cars Land
      Not much is changing, if anything there will be landscaping to help hide the Tower of Terror and Paradise Pier from certain angles.

      Paradise Pier
      The Golden Zephyr will make way for more World of Color viewing area. Jumpin' Jellyfish will be retrofitted as the Hot Air Balloons and fill the eastern helix of California Screamin'. King Arthur's Carousel will receive an upgrade and fill the western helix of the ride, surrounded by a lush topiary garden. The roller coaster itself will receive a new enclosed, two-level queue as well as a new soundtrack. The shops along the boardwalk will also be remodeled, as will the queue for Mickey's Fun Wheel. A new set of bathing tents will be set up by the former Jumpin' Jellyfish area, becoming an area for meet-and-greets. If not, a lighthouse will be built with an animatronic character popping out and interacting with guests. The store below would sell World of Color merchandise and salt water taffy. The Little Mermaid ride will feature some small changes, such as revamping the final few scenes (everything post-Ursula), as well as the removal of some of the queue. Finally, Goofy's Sky Skool will be enclosed and be now themed to a fun house using Disney villains.

      Condor Flats/part of Grizzly Valley
      Renovate the whole area in order to be matched as part of Grizzly Valley. Soarin' will get some new scenes added (but still themed to California - mainly adding a DCA scene with WoC fountains at the end) and the Taste Pilot's Grill will become a fondue restaurant called The Big Dipper. The Little Dipper will be a counter service addition. The roof will show multiple twinkling constellations. There will be an addition geyser-themed playground near Soarin' and the shop will get a rustic treatment that flows with Buena Vista Street. The hangar will become more period-specific, but will still be a hangar. The Soarin' queue will now also be enclosed and redesigned and the whole building (including those screens) will be totally cleaned and refurbished.

      Grizzly Valley
      The Redwood Creek Trail Challenge will live on only as one or two small additions to the new Geyser Park near Soarin'. That area will now house an E-Ticket roller coaster with a suspended track themed to a ski lift. It will be mainly indoors, with a section going through Grizzly River Run and riding over the crowds. The building will be themed to a ski lodge, matching the hotel. The San Francisco houses will be moved to the new Golden Gate Bay area - the facades will now match the Little Mermaid attraction and house a small aquarium. Grizzly River Run would see the addition of some animatronic bears in cute tableaux.

      The parade route will now bypass Buena Vista Street and Hollywoodland by going through Golden Gate Bay and ending in Mission Square.

      Also, films I'd like to see in the Great Movie Ride: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Avatar, Titanic, The Wizard Of Oz, Enchanted, Mary Poppins, The Avengers, Iron Man, Chicago, Shakespeare In Love, True Grit.

          I really like the boat idea. I'm "on board" 100%. I also really dig the lighthouse idea. I agree though that the Hyperion needs cycling shows. Possibly Tarzan, or even the Lion King show from broadway.

            Re: What do you think DCA still needs to fix?

            I wouldn't mind seeing a tangled show in either the Hyperton or Fantasyland Theatre. I also really liked Finding Nemo in AK and wouldn't mind a version of that but I think they Should remodel the Hyperton exterior before the inside show is reworked. I love the hot air balloon idea but i wouldnt mind a Green Army Men parachute drop that would feature an area for the Green Army Men to do their show there. Finally some one agrees with me on a light house I have been suggesting that for quite some time, and the Fastpasses for WoC could be distributed there as well with the line filling up the World of Color Area not the Grizzly Area. San Fransisco is in desperate need of some representation. I actually really like the Condor Flats area I just wish that it would be in time period like 1960s Dessert (or Mountain to blend with Grizzly more) Small Airport, I would love to see a Monorail Stop get put in over where the random plastic airplane display is, this Station would also connect to the Grand Californian through a separate entrance inside the hotel. Taste Pilots Grill would be a 1960 airport area and would be changed in the exterior to blend better into Buena Vista Street and interior would give a larger indoor seating for more air conditioning. and i wouldn't mind seeing the Monorail Race through the building. the soarin' building would remain the same but would be painted with a new paint scene, Blue and Silver the match the rest of the buildings and the restrooms and shop would be revamped as a Flight Control Tower and the jet engine could remain the same but be polished up along with the rest of the soarin' Fast pass area and exit. Minnie's Flight Show could be moved into the new Taste Pilot Grill. If Grizzly Gulch comes to take over the old Redwoods Play area i would not mind, as long as a water play area could be developed in the same way that the one in Hong Kong has. Rumor has it that Ariel's Grotto will be transformed into a Princess Palace for Breakfast Meet and Greet and such which i wouldn't mind. But i feel King Triton's Carousel should be destroyed and Screamin' would get its own indoor Show Building to air condition the stand by line and station. the old Maliboomer garden should be a new dark ride fun house ride featuring clowns and crazy mirrors and other things that would be at a 1900 seaside trolly park. Bugs land has got to go period. I wouldnt mind if its though to be a bug moved to critter country, I know that don't make sense thematically but it could work some how. I really want to see the Radiator Springs Drive Inn Theatre. And i would love a Updated Version of Great Movie Ride that was more like a mixture of Indiana Jones in DL and the Great Movie ride in HS. where the ride vehicle took off at parts and made banked turns and rode through the movies. I think it would go Musicals/ Classics ( like HS but with more iconic Movies) then the Ride gets Highjacked in either a western room (like HS) or a Police room (like HS but more up to date with a more recognizable characters and in a different time period) then we enter the Action Adventure rooms which because the ride has been highjacked take us speeding through rooms featuring Well know action movies Pirates of the Caribbean, Avengers, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Star Wars and some other good action moves, then we end up in either the Atlantis room or the National Treasure room ( both these rooms wouldn't scream the movies but should be enough to get the bad guy out of the room for a confrontation. The final few scenes would be ones that have been major in our time period, Titanic, Avatar, Inception, and whatnot, the second to last scene would be a replacement for the Wizard of Oz scene in HS ( which Wizard would move to the Musicals area). The Muppet's room would be the longest room on the Tour and would feature a test of Muppet Technology and would have special effects for the goofy world, the last scene would be a replica of the HS scene where a screen would montage the history of good movies including a lot of Disney movies that were not in the rest of the ride. The Great Movie Ride would take up all of the Sound-stages from the old Million are Play it, take over Monsters Inc, and would move into the Arcade sound-stage that Mad T Party uses now. It would be an amazing ride if done correctly and would be much better than the one in HS.

              Ok, so someone said that Disney should use new ride systems like Universal is using. I have a slight problem with this... from what I understand many of their big new "e-tickets" (I refuse to only use that phrase for Disney Parks attractions) use some sort of over the shoulder harness, I honestly like Disneyland Resort because I don't have to ride anything with those harnesses (I think screamin and ToT, my 2 least favorite rides, are the only ones using these)
              Trips coming up:

              May 22-26th
              July 13th-18th

                I'm sure the ride system has its benefits. It's a lot like an advanced version of the Indiana Jones jeeps. As long as its a quality ride, I usually could care less about what I'm in.

                  I think the Jumping Jellyfish needs to be rethemed with Dori and Marlins jellyfish scene from Finding Nemo. It's about the only new Pixarification that would make sense.
