  • Disneyland Resort president discusses expansion - OC Register, 4/23/08

    http://www.ocregister.com/articles/d...17-hotel-plans


    More rides, theme park land and hotel rooms are in the future for the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, said Disneyland Resort President Ed Grier Wednesday.

    Disney plans to add a Tinker Bell attraction at Disneyland in October, 253 rooms to the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa and new rides and themed lands to Disney's California Adventure.

    At some point, Disney might add a third theme park on 88 acres of land next to Disneyland and possibly operate two hotels proposed for the Anaheim GardenWalk, Grier told a crowd of about 150 at an Orange County Forum event Wednesday.

    And don't get too excited about the Tinkerbell "attraction", everything I have heard points to a nice Meet and Greet experence, and not a ride.

      Is it the one that was rumored a while back where it suppose to feel like you're shrinking down to her size to meet her?

        It sounds like they are trying to open the attraction to promote the direct to DVD movie. BASACKWARDS! If you ask me.

        Attractions do not promote movies. Movies promote attractions. I see no reason people will want to go to Disneyland for a Tinker Bell attraction.

          Maybe the Tinkerbell attraction is... you get to ride the zipline off the Matterhorn.:lol:Actually, that would be kind of cool. They have a zipline ride at Olympic Park in Calgary off the big ski jump.

          I just hope the third gate will be something fantastic like DisneySea.

            One CM said something about a Fairy meet and great replacing Ariel's Grotto in Disneyland. With The Little Mermaid ride loaming, it sort of makes sense to move it to DCA. Though I'd hate to see the current one go.

              That makes sense...it is about time they changed that little area anyway. They could make kinda a little neverland thingy in the water, or something inside the Lost Boys treehouse perhaps.

                I would go to Disneyland for a Tinker Bell attraction and/or Meet and Greet.

                  Here's the scoop from Al Lutz:

                  Editor's Note 4/25 5PM Special Update: Disneyland's new Tinker Bell "attraction" you've heard about from Ed Grier is actually just a remodeling of the Ariel's Grotto location near the Matterhorn. The new "Pixie Hollow" will be a photo meet n' greet for Tink and her new pixie pals with an attached merchandise cart, just in time for DVD sales this fall. More info to come in the next update. By the way, Ariel will be donning a dress and moving to the Princess Fantasy Faire while her lavish new ride gets built (including a new meet n' greet) for her in DCA. - Al Lutz

                    Does this mean they are re-doing Triton Gardens as well???

                      That's what it sounds like. That is where the current Ariel meet and greet is held and where the Tinkerbell is going. Wouldn't make sense if Tink was surrounded with Trident stuff.

                        I'm impressed by this. I think it is really awesome that they are going to have Tinkerbell meet and greet people, and I've always wanted to see Ariel in her Green sea dress.
