    I think a miniatue golf course on DLR property would be a cool idea. I mean, they have one at WDW.

      In addition to being called "Miniature Golf" or "Putt-Putt Golf" this type of attraction was also called "Goofy Golf." Ya know... it really would be a great idea... and a little money-maker... if Disney would design and create one today. Would you go? I sure would!
      HEY MATT... YA LISTENING?


      Dang. Now that I've written it here, they won't do it for fear that I would want a royalty. Sorry!

        I had some great times there too. Memories / Info:

        They shot quite a few scenes of the Karate Kid at Golf n Stuff

        For a short time they had a guy living in a tree house on the course! He was trying to break some sort of record as I remember.

        There was a very cool water slide there but it was removed (they have their first kiss in front of it in the Karate Kid)

        Last time I was there, they still seemed to have some of the same video games from all those years ago

        ah, to be a kid again...

          I love Miniature Golf, but think about it... Disneyland is a family park. Family means children. Children wanting to play mini golf means waiting forever for your turn on the next hole... Now think about all the locals who'd come to play... doesn't sound like much fun.

          However, I wonder what it would be like to play on a Disney course...

            Disney World solved this problem at both Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland by having guests schedule tee times. It makes it so that there is no wait to play, which makes guests happy, and it would work even better at DL since it's so easy to just head elsewhere until your tee time comes up. The system works quite well at WDW, as they seem to have figured out a good formula for how long it takes guests to play and about how many groups will be no shows, so DL could adopt a similar methodology.

              I'm very impressed with WDW's Fantasia Gardens and Winter Slumberland, and believe mini-golf has never really ceased to be popular. Finding land for future expansion is a big issue for the Disneyland Resort. Perhaps this would explain any part that it may have played in removing a privately owned golf course (s).

              Nevertheless, the Resort would be wise to build on-site family activities such as mini-golf, bowling, ping pong, billiards, air hocky, Lazer Tag, lawn and beach croquet, and volleyball - although I believe there is an area to play volleyball at DLH. Bumper car boats (equiped with waterguns) would be a blast too.

                Exactly! It is activities like this that make WDW more of a Resort, and if DL would like to REALLY be a Resort, as well, they need to add these types of things to keep guests on property longer, and away from Knotts and Universal.

                    Black Oak Casino, a northern California Indian gambling establishment has opened up a family activities area. Included is a popular bowling alley. Such an offering (the bowling, not the gambling) would work quite well at the Disneyland Resort. It would certainly be different. I can just imagine a Disney advertisement..."Now, More Than Ever, Disney Magic Is Right Down Your Alley". hee hee
