  • So if this Harry Potter rumor pans out. . .

    What kind of ride do you want to see?
    It doesn't fit at all with the theming, but I'd like to see a Quidditch themed coaster in DCA.

    I see a recall happening after they realize that kids will be riding broom sticks.


    hehehe kidding.

    I can't see any harry potter fitting into DCA unless they do some heavy landscaping to match the lush greens of harry potter world.

    Harry Potter is more of a Fantasyland type thing and I don't know where they can fit anything in if at all. If anything, an entire land devoted to Harry POtter could be great fun.

      What does Harry potter have to do with disney?
      There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

        Nothing, yet. Reputedly, J.K. Rowling sent Disney a "letter of intent" to consider the possibility of a Harry Potter theme park attraction.

            That Disney and H.K. Rowling are in discussions for a theme park attraction possibility.

                  Impossible to say with inside corporate wrangling like this; if it is true, Rowling could be fishing and not want the competition (Universal, Six Flags) to be dissuaded.

                    Yeah, if they decided to make a Harry Potter ride, let Orlando have it.

                      It would probably have to be a combination of the first four films. Or five, since OOTP comes out in July.

                        (Copied from mugglenet.com)

                        False: JK signs letter of intent for HP theme park
                        A report yesterday stated that JK Rowling signed a letter of intent to Disney concerning plans for a Harry Potter theme park. Today, a representative for Jo informed us that there is no truth to this.

                              If the rumor is indeed true, I am one to believe that Disney would have enough sense to center an entire park around the Potter mythos. The entry plaza is themed like the train station where the guests pass from the world of the muggles to the world of wizards. Main street could be Dagon Alley, of course a giant castle in the center...etc etc etc...

                              To try and cram the Potter franchise into one attraction and neighboring gift shop seems like Disney would be missing out on the Potter mania as well as cramming the "not quite Disney" theming into an already created atmosphere (a fantasyland or two, maybe MGM).

                              The real problem with attractions or a park would be the liscencing and rights to images and actors. Would Disney be able to secure the main people's likenesses for attractions or pictures (Harry, Ron, Snape, etc...) Most of the main characters are now synonymous with the actors who portrayed them, so breaking from that would deffinately damage the whole concept.

                              Personally, I don't care. Im not much of a Potter fan, liked the movies, but found the books dull (they ARE children's books, so I cut them some slack). I'm much rather see someone create a Middle Earth park. Spacious enough for the park to seem like a real place rather than amuesment park.

                                They can always just make another Disneyland, but the rides will be based on live action non-Disney films. Harry Potter (Lord of the Rings too and WILLOW!) can be Fantasyland. Star Wars can be tomorrowland. Indiana Jones can be adventureland.

                                etc etc. Probably won't happen. haha

                                  Just some more misjimformation.

                                  I trust Mugglenet. In my honest opinion, I find a lot of what Jim Hill writes to be completely preposterous, especially since none of it ever comes true.

                                    Yeah, you gotta treat those articles with a grain of salt. In your shoe. Grinding against your little toe. For the reason aforely mentioned. It is just a guy writing stuff under the 1st amendment after all, he can say whatever the hell he wants.

                                    I do get some entertainment value out of them however. To relate it to Harry Potter, it's a bit like reading the Quibbler.

                                        HP is a fantastic Intellectual Property that would work wonders for some corners of Disneyland. It would be best for such an attraction to be on a grand scale and limited to its area (IE Indiana Jones, a PARAMOUNT property).

                                        And... no. Not in DCA.
