Today I was reading a blog on a Disney forum that I frequent. (Yes, I am a member of a Disney online forum! I am a MASSIVE nerd, what do you expect?) The blog can be found at http://tinyurl.com/caqutln if you would like to read it.
Two things I want to discuss from the article: 1.) Mini Monstropolis
2.) Tron in Tomorrowland
1.) Mini Monstropolis- The Disney Imaginears are drawing up plans to tear down the Muppet-Vision 3-D theatre and use that space and the stage 17 building next door to create a Monsters, Inc. mini area. As much as I love the film Monsters, Inc. and the Mike and Sulley To the Rescue attraction at Disney California Adventure I have only one thing to say to this.... NOooooooooo!!! Despite how awesome the ride sounds that will be going in that spot I cannot allow it to kick out my precious Muppet's. I love the Muppet- Vision attraction! It is maybe my favorite attraction in all of California Adventure. Please Disney, please do not remove this attraction. Despite the recent film, which is awesome, this attraction is often the first exposure that kids today have to the Muppets. If it is gone, I am afraid that the Muppets will be forgotten. (Thinking about this makes me tear up. Don't mock me!) As much as I would love to see a Monstropolis themed area in the park, a cool new rollercoaster, and some real themeing in that unloved section of the park, I do not want to lose my Muppets!
2.) Tron-morrowland- Tomorrowland has two of the best attractions in Disneyland but is by far the worst themed. In the article mentioned above, the Imaginears are working on a lightcycle attraction which would utilize the poor, rotting, abandoned PeopleMover tracks. I am soooo hoping that this actually happens. I thoroughly enjoyed the recent Tron movie and am looking forward to the next film. Combine that with my love of the PeopleMover and my anger at Disney for them leaving the tracks there but serving no purpose (Over 13 years now!). Plus, this will give the Imaginears time to work on fixing Tomorrowland and get the area up to par with the rest of the park.
Do you have any opinions about these Disney rumors? If so, let me know in the comments. Or, send me a message on Facebook or Twitter. Thanks for reading!
