  • [Question] Which IP do you want most in Disneyland Forward?

    All of these are rumored for a part of Disneyland forward. If i had to guess they’re gonna add in 4 IP based lands as a part of Disneyland forward . 2 for DCA and two for Disneyland. Something like Peter Pan and frozen for Disneyland and zootopia/wakanda for DCA.

    My vote would be "None of the above."

    it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
    together with every variety of recreation and fun,
    designed to appeal to everyone."

      If I had to pick one, it's Tangled. I don't trust Disney to build a Toy Story-land because they have just failed to make it exceptional every single time. (They remind me of Disney's pitch to JK Rowling for Harry Potter world.) Peter Pan is unfortunately dated, and I'm not sure what kind of theming we would get beyond Captain Hook's ship and Skull Rock, all of which we've seen before. I don't think Tron lends itself well to placemaking beyond a single ride; everything else on the grid would just be domineering without something like Electronica to constantly keep it flowing and even that was weak in execution because of its overlay status.

      Zootopia and Frozen have very detailed environments with a lot to work with, but something about them feels sterile to me. It's hard to describe, but it almost feels like the approach to the environments hued a little too close to realism in execution. Tangled just feels like there is plenty of opportunity for more whimsy and fantastical theming. Great water setting, a typical fantasy village with its own personality, possible restaurant with the Snuggly Duckling, and plenty of opportunities to integrate nature and a huge tower setpiece.

          I also vote Beauty & Beast. It's weird that after 30 years, that there is no B&B attraction in Disneyland.

          SEND US A CLONE OF THE TOKYO DISNEYLAND B&B RIDE!

                  I voted Tron, been wanting more Tron since they removed People Mover. Zootopia would be my 2nd choice as I could see a lot done with that world.

                      Beauty and the Beast, definitely. Not really anything from that list, to be honest?

                            Superstar Limo, the PARK!

                            North Korea. (Including the ride, "Escape from North Korea!")


                            Second Rate Tokyo Disney Sea. (It could still be one of the best American theme parks.)

                              Tangled, from that list. I could even see Raya and The Last Dragon having lots of possibilities. Water/boat rides, or possibly a floating restaurant. Some sort of tuk tuk ride. Could be neat. Beauty & the Beast really needs a land. Wreck it ralph has many possibilities as well.

                                  Of the options given, I think Zootopia has the most potential to be a fascinating place to visit. The filmmakers put a lot of thought and care into the layout and look of the city and it would be amazing to see in person. It's not often that Disney Animation tries its hand at such detailed worldbuilding and after all, the theme parks are supposed to be all about bringing us into interesting worlds that aren't the everyday one.

                                  And here's why it wins over the other options:

                                  Wakanda: If voting for the MCU alone, Wakanda would be it. A fascinating blend of Tomorrowland, Adventureland, and the World Showcase? Yes please! But Zootopia just edges it out on the strength of having multiple environments in one setting.

                                  Frozen: I'm tired of Frozen. It's everywhere.

                                  Toy Story: I'm also pretty tired of Toy Story. There are two Toy Story rides in the DLR, and they're both pretty weak, content-wise. The thrill of "Toy Story Land" is supposedly being shrunk to the size of a toy and seeing everything giant-sized, but that conceit appeals to me more when it's the natural world, a la "a bug's land."

                                  Peter Pan: What would replicating the setting of Peter Pan look like in a theme park? You'd start in an early 20th Century neighborhood and travel to a magical land with pirates and Indians and safari country and mermaids and fairies. Is it just me, or is Disneyland already basically that? "Peter Pan Land" would be redundant, in other words.

                                  TRON: I re-watched the original 1982 movie recently and it just felt kind of oppressive. Too dark blue, too many blocky shapes. Potentially great for a single ride, not so great for a whole land.

                                  Tangled: Another redundancy, this time with Fantasyland. Seriously--the animators went to Disneyland and sketched Fantasyland in order to get inspo for what the kingdom of Corona should look like.

                                    Snowball Express is my earliest memory of a bad movie. My mom & I saw it when it came out and we both left the theater a little depressed. Dean Jones unconvincingly pretending to ski in front of a blue screen-- most disappointing special effects till Spy Kids 2 would come out about 25 years later. (See link below for a Snowball Express scene.) Some low-budget Disney live-action movies from that period were so bad that many publications didn't even review them.

                                    I did love "The World's Great Athlete" when I was a kid though. Good casting! The Jane-like character even resembled Maureen O'Sullivan.
