  • What's your idea of a 5th themepark?

    Just wondering your ideas of a 5th themepark.

  • #2
    My idea would be a villians themed all thrill ride park with a few not so scary rides thrown in for little kids. Each area of the park would have a few small rides and a few thrill rides so the little kids could ride on the kiddie rides while dad/mom/teens could do the thrill coasters,etc.

      I think that Disney needs a rollarcoaster park. They just don't have enough thrill rides right now!

        Hrm. I like the villains idea, but an all thrill ride park might not have the right themeing. Combine the two, get the theming right, and an innovative link to MK through Fantasyland, Sounds good!

          Disney's villan adventure or disney's Villan Kingdom..... or even.. Disney villan Studios... hehe

          Villans are a good idea for themepark.. add thrill rides... and add rides that are appropriote for everyone and you have a hit.... think MK with thrill rides & also keeping dark rides and innovative rides that are kid friendly.... It would be perfect... (a future world with Alien encounter.... The entire land could be sponsored.. (falsly) by XS tech....

              I remember hearing and reading that Walt Disney's reason for building Disneyland in the first place was that he wanted a place where parents and children could have fun together. You build a thrill ride park with a few kiddie rides in each "themed" area and that sounds a lot to me like Six Flags. I love thrill rides, don't get me wrong, but that is not why Disney created the theme park in the first place. On the other hand, too many of the new attractions lately are too kiddie oriented like Winnie the Pooh and Buzz Lightyear. Alien Encounter was even made more kid oriented by putting Stitch in there. Personally I like the Stitch ride and it's getting too bad of a wrap because too many people are comparing it to Alien Encounter. Had Alien Encounter never ever been there, Stitch would be a big hit.

                Yup, me too! I can't help but agree.

                However, here is my idea for a 5th park-- don't make one right now! Instead, focus your ideas, creativity, and dollars on DCA, Hong Kong, Paris Studios, and any place else that needs a touch up or extra help. Wouldn't that make more sense? At least it does to me.

                  I'll second that!
                  If Disney do get these "problem" areas sorted, then surely they'll be raking in enough moolah for a 5th WDW park.

                    I think the 5th park should be "Disney Downunder" and it should be located in Sydney, and based on all the aussie characters that have appeared in the movies / TV Shows over the years. (Like the Rescuers Downunder and thingy from ducktales, and er, all the other many Aussie characters.)

                    We could sell bent churros and call them "Bloomin' Boomerangs" and we could have Vegemite-On-A-Stick ODV Carts. Our Starbucks would sell Tim-Tam flavoured coffee, and we could have the "Indiana Jones & The Temple Of The Forbidden Pie" Ride - given the Aussie love for Meat Pies.

                    The Enchanted Tiki Room would feature Galahs, Emu's, Ostritches, Rainbow Lorrikeets & Budgerigars, and would feature "Bonza the Ocker Cocka-too"

                    The Aussie Bear Jamboree would have no Koalas in it at all cos they're Marsupials and not bears.

                    Toilets would be marked "Blokes & Sheilas" and all the cast would be instructed to tell guests to "Have A Nice G'Day"

                        I'd say something original, like the Villains themed park. That'd rock! But i'd disagree with all thrill rides. It's still disney, not Six Flags, buut Disney could make some awesome villain rides. If the 5th park wasn't an original park, then bring DIsney Seas here, put it on the boarder of the 7 Seas Lagoon. IT'd be perfect and it would settle all of us who can't go to Japan. But i'd want a freakin awesome original park more.

                          I agree that there's no need for a fifth park right now. Spend the money on upkeep/updating of MK, Epcot, and the Studios, and adding more to do at DAK. When the time comes to build a new park, however...

                          My thoughts exactly. Build it pretty much as it is in Tokyo (after all, it worked like a charm in reverse with the Disneyland/MK-type park), without the Tower of Terror, of course. Don't dare skimp on the budget! I'd be willing to put money on WDW's DisneySea being a huge success if the money was spent to replicate it faithfully.

                            well what if they could build a cartoon kingdom that would be all about cartoons. It would have rides like brandy and mr. whiskers and kim possible lilo and stitch and all those other cartoons.

                              Well, I don't think we'll see a 5th gate at WDW anytime in the next 20 years (if not more), but when it happens, I'd LOVE a Villains park that, while peppered with C ticket-type attractions, would also have a lot (i.e. 3 or 4 to start with) thrill rides - maybe something featuring Maleficent for one.

                              Also, I'd LOVE to see Disney do a hyper-coaster. Yeah, yeah, I know, not family friendly for the traditional family, but if your family is jsut husband and wife like my DH and me, then it'd be grrrrreat!

                                I guess it depends on attendance. If they can keep the existing hotels full, then they might build a 5th park (and more hotels).

                                The problem of course it that there are only so many people they can attract to WDW. At some point adding more parks will not increase attendance.

                                    Totally agree, here. They already have something like that. It's called Universal. For a 5th park, I'd love to see a sea-based theme, or maybe just add it to the Animal Kingdom as a separate land.

                                      I sincerely hope there is never a fifth theme park. The canabilizing of visitors started when Disney-MGM opened. It continued when WDW opened Pleasure Island and two water parks and Universal opened its first Fla. park. It reached the saturation point with the openings of DAK, IOA and Discovery Cove.

                                      Unless you're very rich, or British, the average guest vacation only lasts a week. You try doing everything there is to do at WDW (leave out anything else in Central Fla.) in one week, especially in the miserable summer heat/humidity. It can't be done ... which is why you often see so many miserable folks at the Magic Kingdom. People are paying thousands of dollars for magical vacations that turn into endurance tests instead of fun.

                                      WDW has already reached the point of diminishing returns, even with resorts. WDW discounts all of the time now. Not like a decade ago when you had to pay rack rate much of the year or be very lucky for Fla. resident, MKC or AP discounts. There was no such thing as generic discount codes that are all the rage today.

                                      And let's not forget the four parks that already exist at WDW all are in various states of needing major upkeep and additions. Let's see a couple of new true E-Tickets at the MK. Let's see FW at Epcot restored to its state of wonder and a few new countries added to WS. Let's see Beastly Kingdom at DAK. Let's see anything at Disney-MGM.

                                      But a fifth park? That's great fanboy/gal stuff, but the idea is frankly ludicrous.
