    Re: Which Attractions Should Go or be Renovated?

    It's tough to be a bug is the only 3-d movie at DL that I like so I hope that stays.

    I like the Monsters Inc. ride somewhat, and still havn't seen Turtle talk yet. Both are loved by the kiddies so I hope those stay.

    Twilight Zone should stay for obvious reasons.

    Screamin should stay for the roller coaster lovers or else the SpaceMountain line will get ridiculously long again.

    The Sorcerer's workshop and Soarin should stay simply bc they're my favorites at DCA.

    Everthing else can go or stay. It matters not to me. I only spend about a half a day there per trip.

          They need to do something in the building that had Who Wants to be a Millionaire. I dont think anything should be done to Screamin' and I wish they'd take out Playhouse Disney. I dont see how that will fit in with the new theme back there.

            I'm surprised anyone is in favor of keeping these. Aren't these walkthrough "attractions" one of the major problems with the park in the first place?
            Playhouse Disney-Live On Stage?---------move to toontown
            Monsters Inc: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue---move to toontown

            Francis' Ladybug Boogie--------"" "" "" "" ""
            How would this work thematically? Toontown is based on wacky hand-drawn cartoons, not realistic-looking CGI.

            The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror--------expand either new orleans square or frontierland and put tot in one of these areas
            Tower of Terror is based on Hollywood, not New Orleans or the wild west. How would this work?

                I really enjoyed Turtle Talk with Crush-- and I am 24 with no kids. It was really amusing to both parents and kids alike, and it was especially neat to see the kiddos interact with Crush. And I generally am not a huge kid fan.

                Playhouse Disney-- I would have to say no. Playhouse Disney really isn't as huge as it used to be and it only really pertains to very young kids. And not the whole family.

                Monsters Inc -- I actually LIKED it. It's not the best dark ride I've ever been on, but I've been on worse rides in WDW. And from what people have said its a lot better than Superstars Limo which was there before.

                As for Muppets being replaced by Mickey's Phil...that's just a shame. :/ Seriously I <3 the Muppets and yes I've seen it in Florida long before it came to California, but its still good. They need to stop recycling attractions.

                  "The Golden Gate Bridge will be transformed into a bridge from that period"

                  Just confused, isn't the period they are talking about the 20th century/1900's? The Golden Gate Bridge was built during the depression (construction started in 1933), so it already is in the right time period.
                  I hope they either keep the Golden Gate Bridge or else get rid of the Bridge idea entirely as there is no other Bridge that is so associated with California (of course in this case what would they use to "hide" the Monorail track?!

                    The tortilla factory and bakery should stay because they are the perfect snack and it doesn't cost a dime.

                        Mission Tortilla Factory-Keep but remodel the whole area to include a nice sit down Mexican restaurant. In fact that whole area should be restaurants. A nice sit down Chinese restaurant would be nice to.
                        Boudin Bakery-keep
                        Seasons of the Vine-??? j/k keep/go I have no preference
                        Disney Animation:keep this is one of the real gems in DCA
                        Turtle Talk with Crush- a chance to talk to and interact with a Disney character...sweeet
                        Character Close-Up
                        Animation Academy
                        Sorcerer's Workshop
                        Playhouse Disney-Live On Stage?
                        Hollywood Backlot Stage-This would be great if they remodeled it and made it more like the Tomorrowland area. Pull all those eateries off the main street, make a central kitchen and offer lots of covered seating. With a good show this would be a nice area.
                        Monsters Inc: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue-keep with a better queue( I think I read somewhere this was already planned.
                        The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror- just better theming up to the hotel.
                        Soarin' Over California-keep
                        Tuck n' Roll's Drive 'Em Buggies-remove- this area would be better suited by removing this and Lady bug Boogie and creating at least one good ride and maybe a walk-through attraction something like in Toon-town but bug themed.
                        Flik's Flyers-keep
                        Heimlich's Chew Chew Train-keep but redesign the whole ride to circle FFF. I know it probably wouldn't fit but it would be nice.
                        Princess Dot Puddle Park-I would remove this whole area and adding at least one maybe two new rides. Besides don't we get enough of the trailer park people letting there kids play in the water in there underwear in the farm area.
                        Francis' Ladybug Boogie- see above
                        It's Tough to be a Bug!-keep
                        King Triton's Carousel- I would like to see a better carousel I like the the animals just don't care for the carousel itself . If there isn't room for one with a bigger footprint. Why not go double decker, kind of like the one on Pier 39 in SF.
                        Redwood Creek Challenge Trail- Only walked through this area once. Lot of real estate seems like a ride could put this area to better use.
                        I love the smell of burnt coffee in the morning. ..

                          Isn't Redwood Creek Challenge Trail as big as the Indian Village was? If so, then they definately need to build a ride there. Look what they were able to do with the Indian Village area.

                            I hate to remind people but Disneyland was built for family fun. Note just teens and young single adults. Rides and attractions like disney;'s playhouse and the Bugsland my children love, and just look how crowed those two areas get Disney would be insane to get rid ofthose two. With that said some one please burn down that Zepplin ride!

                              Nobody is advocating for these parks to cater only to teens and young single adults. You have to remember that Walt didn't design Disneyland as something that you would grow out of after five years old. Fantasyland is certainly child friendly, but it also has things that appeal to adults. Things like Bugsland and Playhouse Disney are very short sighted because they cater to an even smaller demographic, literally. When I was a little kid, my favorite ride wasn't even in Fantasyland; it was Pirates of the Caribbean. At four years old, the Dumbo ride was already boring to me, so I don't think that some people give kids enough credit as far as their intelligence goes.
