    The old people mover platforms are a long gone possibility...if I recall right it has been reported that they have been closed too long and are now out of compliance for earthquake safety and building codes. The cost of bringing them up to modern code standards would be so high that it would be the same as demolishing it all and rebuilding from scratch which I don't think they are willing to do and it would be very disruptive to TL operations as well to do so.

    Plus, the Incredibles are not really "tomorrow" themed. They are part of an "alternate reality" where "supers" exist but not really a fit for tomorrowland. I would rather not continue the slide away from theming that Astro Blasters started.

    Fairly certain Metroville is located on the west coast so it probably would be California, possibly an LA stand-in. Incredibles wouldn't mesh as well with Tomorrowland anyway, even with it's retrofuturism. It's set in an alternate late 60s-early 70s if they actually started getting more of that technology the sci-fi of the time was forecasting.

    Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar films...but I don't necessarily need a ride/attraction for it...especially in DL where thematically it really would not fit anywhere IMO. It might work if shoe horned into DCA someplace, but really...just because you can do something, does that mean you should?
    Excellent post!

    Innoventions at one point contained some computer science. However, I don't think the Commodore 64 is relevant anymore.

    As has been said many times, past out of theme attractions are no excuse for additional theme violations. It is that kind of justification that will soon be bringing us Princesses on Main Street U.S.A.

    You can find big cities all over the world, you can only find the type of town Cars takes place in in 4 states of the United States, one of which includes California.

    Cars Land - Epitome of a "former glory ghost-town" you find everywhere in California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc. Even though it's not California specific - it's found in many spots of California.

    WOC - Sure it may not fit the California theme, but shows/parades in Disney don't usually do. When have you ever seen an electrical parade going down a turn of the 20th century midwest town? Have you ever seen a mouse's imagination come to life on a southern river? I know I may sound hypocritical, but it's the truth.

    I like that DCA isn't tied down to just California-only stuff. Disney is seemingly making it their Pixar park. They should just rename it to PixarLand. :lol:

    They actually have planned an Incredibles E-Ticket attraction @ DCA! They might still do it too. They put it on hold in favor of Cars Land.

    You could say that, but only if Tomorrowland changed courses.

    Marvel 2009, takes place in a "cyberpunk dystopia", a future that centers around hackers, artificial intelligences, and computer science.

    The current Tomorrowland focuses on robots and space, with a dab of innovation here and there.

    I'm not saying Marvel 2099 couldn't work, I'm just saying it'd need more of a Tron flair.

    I should have said "current Tomorrowland theme", instead of future, sorry for the confusion.

    I think mainly because they haven't had a land to drive the ride. Superheroes doesn't work in Adventureland, ToonTown, Fantasyland, New Orleans Square, Critter Country or Frontierland. Tomorrowland could accommodate a pod ride, but super-heroes don't tie in with the future, at all.

    If I recall correctly, there were rumors awhile back that the people mover would be changed into the incredipods (the pods on the tropical island). With the people mover now set to be removed, I guess that rumor was just a rumor.
