  • Attraction Enhancements

    We all know that many attractions in Disneyland such as Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise have gotten new additions and enhancements for the 50th. Storybookland Canal Boats will go down for refurshment. Will Storybook get any new scenes during its downtime?

        so Space Mountain was the only one that really got the overhaul

        HM may be getting it slowly over time

        and Pirates got new boats

        Jungle Cruise might recieve a small amount

        but Small World gets nothing? (I personaly would love to see them flood the sets the way WDW's and Tokyos are flooded, I'm too tall right now I can see the showbuilding floor and all the cords down there when I'm riding)

        do you know any of the specifics in the plan?

          Well Jungle and Small World are both down right now, work going on inside, Jungle is getting new scene and horticulture themed lands and a new handicapped boat so guests who cant exit their wheelchairs can ride without exiting their wheelchairs, says a current Jungle Cruise CM who is working there right now.The Bamboo is falling!

              the ada boat at jungle is still testing and during the rehab hard to do with no river. its a good idea in theory but so far not working out so well practically. right now i requires too many people to opperate it which may or maynot be around when its needed. keep your fingers crossed that it'll work.
              i have no idea

                  Small World isn't down...unless this is very recent. The Refurb schedule doesn't show it going down at all this year (most likely inaccurate since IASW: H should be appearing this year)...

                  Maybe you're thinking of WDW?

                    Are they getting diff boats in Pirates than the tacky multicolored ones that they use in Its A Small World?

                    Hopefully wooden ones that look something like a skiff on a pirate ship?

                    As for plussing attractions, Walt was always in favor of this.

                    They need to pluss the Grizzly River Run, I know when DCA opened they wanted it to be kid free and have no Disney characters. Thought teens and young couples would come on dates. Didn't happen and now they cater to families on vacation with their kids in both parks. The Redwood Canyon trail became Brother Bear themed to some extent, why not add the Brother Bears to Grizzly River Run. I know its not a major hit Disney movie but why not put in a few audioanimatronics and make the ride worth it, I go on Splash Mtn when I dont want to get wet just to see the show. I avoid GRR every time cause theres nothing to see and you get soaked.

                      they hoped for too much of everything, there isn't enough in the park to do for teens that like thrills and there isn't enough edutainment or sophistication in the park to make it an Epcot and there's barly any kid stuff there at all :P

                      maybe DCA COULD get teens youknow if they advertised for teens and put stuff in to attract them

                            Why is it everything is now getting wheelchair stuff?? My grandmother has been dead since 2001, and NOW they actually start accomodating her!! When we took her, she could hardly do any of the rides we wanted to show her!!!

                              I have been reading all about the enhancements that is being done in the park. One of the attractions that is also my favorite is the Monorail and I think it needs TLC too and I know I have read somewhere that they are planning to replace the ones we have right now for reasons that it is always breaking down. For what I remember from that article that they are trying to get DL new ones before the 50th. Did anyone else read this article or am I just going loco?? Help! :confused: :confused: :confused:

                                To my recollection - it was monorail Red (or was it Orange?) that was removed, shipped out and completely torn apart to have new prints and machined parts made. The goal is to completely remake the monorail fleet, and have a supply of parts for future maintenance. I would not expect this for the 50th however...

                                  Small world got refurbished not too long ago (maybe 2 years) when the repainted the outside and completely redid the audio, and I felt like that was a nice update for the 50th. Space obviously got changes, as is JC, HM saw several upgrades, and Pirates is getting its audio remastered along w/ the new boats. I would say they met their goals in that sense. Storybook Land's rehab is only a month, so I would imagine it will get a nice repainting, new station gates, and PERHAPS a new scene, though I'm not sure I'd bet on it.
