  • [Idea] Next Up at Tokyo Disneyland: Star Wars Land

    There is currently no place to put Carsland at Tokyo Disneyland. They are not going to pave over the Rivers of America, eliminating the Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer Island, and have the view from the Western River Railroad be Radiator Springs.

    Not happening.

    In order to build CarsLand, they'll have to use the parking lot area, where there is room for Radiator Springs Racers. However, the backside of the Cadillac range is just plain butt ugly and would look terrible to all the people in the official hotels. However, if they build the multi-story parking garage so it backs up onto the Cadillac range, that might solve the problem. This would, I assume, eliminate the dreary Grand Prix raceway whose time has long come and gone.

    Yes, that does put Carsland in that weird area between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland, and not in Westernland. But it can't fit in Westernland, and if that's the deal-breaker then they'll build a Star Wars land instead. They can easily demolish the theater where the awful One Man's Dream has been playing since dinosaurs ruled the earth and extend the new Star Wars land all the way from Star Tours to the edge of Fantasyland, just before Pooh's Hunny Hunt, and extend out into the parking lot. That seems a lot more likely to me.

    Can anybody show us on the map, where you're referring to?

      The arrow is on One Man's Dream.

        That space in Tomorrowland is pretty big... It could certainly use some TLC...

            I don't think Carsland is a good fit for either of their two parks in Tokyo; they don't like 'missing' Disneyland rides, but this isn't a Disneyland ride.

              I disagree: Radiator Springs Racers is the best ride built in a US park since Soarin Over California, and that was the best ride since Indy. That's not a lot of greatness since 1995 when Indy opened.

              The Japanese love the American west because it's so totally alien to their own environment. And Carsland is the only truly immersive area built in a US park that equals the areas of DisneySEA. (When the Fantasyland Forest in WDW is completed, it will almost equal that immersive quality.)

              The Japanese wouldn't get Luigi's Flying tires (hard to build on landfill and they can already foresee that the line would be four hours long) or probably even Mater's Junkyard Jamboree (I happen to like both): Oriental Land would pony up some money for better rides.

              But I get your point: Carsland really belongs in DisneySEA, except for the fact that it's a land, not a port, and doesn't fit in DisneySEA.

              It also doesn't really fit in Tokyo Disneyland at the moment, however that's because there are only two truly totally immersive areas in that park: Westernland, particularly the Rivers of America and Mark Twain, Western River Railroad, and Big Thunder Mountain; and Toontown. If more of the park were divided into more immersive areas, then Carsland would be a better fit. One big step would be a Star Wars land. Then adding Carsland doesn't seem such a bad fit.

              You can see a similar situation in California Adventure, which was a totally disjointed mess, but redoing the main street into Buena Vista Street, and opening Carsland, has helped the entire park define itself more clearly. The only area that's still a mess is Hollywoodland, but we know that part of it is going to become Monstropolis, which is the first step in Phase II. I was very dubious that the redo of Buena Vista Street and Carsland would do what the Disney execs wanted with California Adventure, but it's worked splendidly.

              You think the line for Toy Story Mania is long at DisneySEA? The line for Radiator Springs Racers would equal it. It's amazing that even though it's the same ride system as Journey to the Center of the Earth, it's such an entirely different experience because of the way it's all designed.

                Oooh, is this in the works? What else are they planning on doing?
