  • Attached To Starcade??

    From The Lagoon of Liquidspaceman...

    Here is a poll I was thinking about today. I personally have never liked the Starcade area. It is just an arcade that anyone could go to out side of DL. I feel the space could be better used. Why pay the steep price to enter and then spend part of that time at an arcade? Walt went to all this trouble to plan attractions for the whole family to experience, rather than have a place for the kids to have fun while the parents sit down and wait for them to finish. With the uncertainty of HISTA, the upper area of Starcade closed and the area for the arcade below, there is a lot of space that could be better used. A couple options come to mind:

    -Put in a nice 2 story restaurant either themed like the City of Naboo (since Star Tours might be updated), or make it look something like the Dinning Room on the Enterprise from Star Trek Next Generation, complete with stars moving outside of the windows at light speed.(I know it is the Starship moving, not the stars). The area could have the same feel as when you go into The Blue Bayou with moon and the night sky above. Having a nice glass elevator would be cool looking too.
    -Put in an "D/E" ticket ride simular to Journey Through Inner Space (Doom Buggy Technology). Call it Journey Through Outer Space? hehehehe!
    -Use the Bears from Critter Country as "BEARS IN SPACE!" (Remember the Muppets, Pigs in Space?) Also, before you say bears won't fit in TL, remember there use to be ducks, and other farm animals in America Sings!
    -Use the area as the back side of Edison Square. Have a new attraction for Main Street that uses this area from the alley in Main Street.

    Great idea, I love the idea of a (hopefully, upscale) space themed restaurant in Tomorrowland. With a video game console conected to every kids tv, the last thing they need to do in Disneyland is play video games.
    However, eating good food is always pleasant

    P.S. Can I get wine with that entree'? :lol:

      I meant to add that whatever goes in there, it should also be designed around the PM, so people get a teaser while riding it.

          I picked Other:

          I think 2 things need to happen. The bottom floor should have all of the latest games for today's generation. The top floor should have all 'retro' games for my generation. While all of the young punks are down shooting Zombies and such, we can all be up stairs playing Discs of Tron, Dig Dug, Galaga, Star Wars (the original), etc.

            I picked other as well. I'd like to see the area become a two story replica of Pizza Planet from Toy Story, with food similar to the current Redd Rocket's menu and arcade games, then convert Redd Rockets back into an attraction.

              I think a nice restaurant would go very well there too! Especially if it had a nice theme like Liquidspaceman mentioned. Then they could do away with Red Rockets Pizza port and put back the BIG TWA rocket and make a revised attraction like the original! Maybe a "mission to Europa" or something a little more far fetched than our current space exploration program can offer! Tomorrow land should be one of the BEST "lands" in Disneyland, offering state of the art attractions while holding true to the original "vision" of Walt Disney Imagineers!

                  I said "other". Leave it now isn't quite right because the 2nd floor is still gone. I want the 2nd floor back, complete with full-size air hockey tables. They used to have the good old metal surfaced air hockey up there with the hard pucks, not the ones like today's arcades often have, at half the size and with the soft white pucks that don't do anything. The air hockey tables were a real draw, right up until they removed them.

                  Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                    hmm Im torn between reasturant or new c/d ticket. How about turning Starcade into a "Reasturant at the end of the universe", making HISTA into a Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy ride (like the imagineers supposedly want to), and turn Redd Rocket Pizza Port into a new c/d ticket.

                      Actually I should of voted for the Spaceport restruant. My Idea is similiar but I would love to see the Starcade tied in with Star Tours and turn it into the Mos Eisley Catina and Restraunt. It will be a sit down restraunt with animitronic Aliens throughout the palce. Sort of like the Rainforest Cafe. The Cantina Band will play and they would be on a rotating stage. After the Catina Band plays, the curtains will cover the stage and it rotates to bring out the next band. The Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi. They could actually have it like Jabba's Palace also and have an animatronic Jabba sitting there as well except his belches and slime drooling may have a bad effect on people's appitites. It would be just like Chuck E. Cheese for the Star Wars fans!!!

                        Attached? Are you kidding? :-)

                        A restaurant would be nice there, if they used Pizza Port for a ride. I'd be just fine with HISTA going away and a new attraction going in there somewhere.

                            I could maybe go for that. It could be called Flynn's and you have to go through some type of interface to go into some high tech video/arcade simulator.

                              That's not possible. The backstage area between the backside of locker alley and the startours/startrader/starcade is a much needed one. I know it's big, but it has a lot of foot and vehicle traffic.

                                Couldn't this space get moved, maybe underground. I saw the sketches for Edison Square and Liberty Street in the Opera House exhibit and I loved the idea. I understand that it's needed, but is it so vital that it, too, can't be re-imagineered?

                                  I have no real issue with the Starcade except it sort of irritates me you have to pay for the games. It's Disneyland, let's just let people go nuts with the free games, they already paid $50 plus to get in. If this means DDR fanatics buy APs so that they can play unlimited, whatever. Plus you can play DDR in Innoventions for free...

                                    Whoa whoa I agree. Actually they should just make a whole franchise like that.
