    Tomorrowland has clearly become a place that supports todays technology over tomorrows.
    I fully agree.

    I agree. The horrible attempts to 'upgrade' have 'downgraded' it by far - Tomorrowland (why do I always resort to Tomorrowland? just look at it....)

    Upgradable museum. YES....if the alternative is another Tomorrowland-like catastrophe.

    Re: Disneyland as a museum.

    I want Disneyland to keep coming up with new and innovative rides. Disneyland definatly has not lost its charm, or atleast to me for that matter. Yes, some rides were made on the cheap, I agree. But we should be thankful that Disneyland is bringing back old rides like the subs rather than paving them over. They realized that they now need to attract to the younger audiences and that they love Nemo. They saw that the lagoon is a great place to put Nemo is whalah, now the subs are coming back.

    The new add-ons to Pirates & Mansion was just incredible to me. Sparrow was so life-like.

    I think Disneyland is still very innovative, it just needs some spricing up, just like what it got during the 50th. Disneyland will still be around for many decades to come I think.

    Most of the people I met at Disneyland who are CMs are big Disney fans like I am. So, if anyone sees a CM, cheer them up regardless if they cheered you up. It's really fun.

    So, I like the creative and innovative Disneyland over the museum Disneyland. Because if Disneyland were to just stay the same year in and year out, they would lose to competitors who are taking away the crowds with new and innovative things. I don't want that happening to Disneyland.

    started a topic Disneyland as a museum.

    Disneyland as a museum.

    I was recently thinking...

    We have two camps (generally speaking). One that would like that Disneyland never changed, or that only additions / upgrades were made.

    The other one would like to see Disneyland evolve into something greater, bigger and better.

    I'd say I fall into the former camp, although stuff like Indy makes me think twice about it.

    But I fear that with Walt's passing, the accountants and marketing people taking their place have been harming DL with sub-par attractions, trying hard to please stockholders while ignoring the public.

    That, and somehow I feel the really creative people left the company a long time ago. Mercifully, Lasseter seems to be doing some great things. We'll see.

    Then again, DL is a classic. A gem that has no equal in the theme park business. How much longer can it stand marketing people and accountants draining the last blood out of its proverbial veins?

    Look at the CMs. How badly they are paid, how they seem to be mistreated, and the personnel rotation numbers. Where's the charm in a place where people are paid less than in your usual fast food restaurant?

    I know this is a reflection of the times we are living in. Maybe things will change for the better soon. Maybe not.

    So, here's my question.

    Would you be happy to see DL stay as a museum, in a semi-static state, where major changes were few and far between, but you could count on a friendly atmosphere, top notch rides, and Walt Disney's general vision for DL?
