        There's a rumor that WDW will, sometime in the next couple years, start construction on a fifth gate. I guess, obviously, a StarWarsland could be part of that. Lucas was very interested in expanding upon Star Wars presence in the theme parks when he discussed why he sold to Disney.

          You of course have totally incontrovertible proof that the reason these parks are inferior to the CA side parks (you will have many who disagree with that assessment by the way) and they are not as clean is because of the number of parks there right? You will be presenting that proof no doubt? It's not because of different management, different climate, different numbers, etc and/or combination of all. No, it's definitely because of the number of parks and that's it.
          Nail on the head. Different management system in FL completely.

          There is still no proof in there that this is for a Star Wars ride or that there is a proposed Star Wars Land.

            Agree, patent has no mention anywhere that I could see that involves Disney. Looks to be "Six Flags" style ride mechanics with VERY low capacity.

              Can you, however, explain two things please?

              1. why is this "hilarious"?
              2. how is your link "proof"?

              Agreed. Some people just value being smug over being correct. Well put JMazz.

                This looks like it could be a real fun design, but I worry about capacity. There would be some real long wait times for this one....

                  wait times could equal those of Soarin. This would be horrible! Lol

If it stays a two gate resort, it will eventually either stagnate and fail or will be forced to eventually get rid of even more "classic" attractions in order to fight off stagnation and build new attractions where the old ones once were. How well would you handle THAT change I wonder?
                    Curious - this is an interesting opinion, but where is any evidence that Disney Resort is stagnating or failing? In fact the crowds are increasing to uncomfortable numbers. With a slight exception for the Pressler years where there was virtually no maintenance and attractions were becoming stores, there has been nothing but a continuing rise in resort activity.

                    Stagnation or failure because of not expanding - forcing tearing out of classic attractions? No evidence.

                        You have it backwards. Expanding would allow them to keep things relatively the same in DL with out it stagnating because resort visitors would have so many different things to go to. Not expanding means DL can not stay "the same old thing" if there are no other places to put in new attractions. No alternate gates means the changes to prevent the stagnation would have to be done in the existing parks...which have no room and so something will have to go to yesterland.

                        Unless it is your position that DL and DCA could freeze just like they are right now and 20-25 years from now they would be just as popular and relevant as they are today? You have to have some place to keep moving forward with the new stuff and the only way to do that without getting rid of some of the favorite "old stuff" is to expand to other gates.

Especially when held up to a person who has checked the actual patent document and seen who owns the patent by READING the document. Thanks though for the irony of calling other posts and opinions hilarious when your own post falls safely in that category.
                          ITA. And this is why I asked him. The opinion of a blogger is never proof. And in this case, it is even more laughable since the blogger him/herself states that he/she is not sure about the facts they think they may have uncovered.

                          And would it be unusual that Disney partners with an outside amusment comapny to build a ride? Sounds like this member (Rave) is the one being "hilarious". Off the top of my head, Matty was partly designed by Arrow.

                          I dunno if this will be a Disney purchase or used in any parks. But I don't think there is evidence one way or the other....at least not as of this post.
