The "Not A Museum" Game

Hey kids! I've got a great fun game for us all to play based on our favorite subject, improving Disneyland!

The three basic quotes to keep in mind are these (and forgive me if I mis-quote here; doing it all from memory):

"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."

"Disneyland is NOT a Museum."

"If you're going to replace an older attraction with a newer one make sure it's more elaborate, more sophisticated, more amazing than the one previous."

Keeping those three quotes in mind, what Disneyland attraction would you take out, and what would you replace it with. No fair retro-replacing such as putting the old Country Bears back in place of the Winnie The Pooh fiasco... if you're gonna bring the Country Bears back you have to explain how it's gonna be bigger and better than ever before.

Got it?


Now let the ideas flow!

REMOVE the Victorian/Jules Verne-esque copper-and-Brass theme from Tomorrow Land.
REPLACE it with a generically Star Trek/Star Wars theme incorporating bright "Neon" blues and reds on a beige contoured background. Touch-panel help screens with recorded voice information should be plentiful along the walkways... think of the same technology that they used at Disney World for the interactive Mickeys, only in a stationary place. Guests could use the touch screen to see what the wait time for a ride in Fantasyland is like, check the menu and prices of different eateries in the park, check show times... al with a pleasing futuristic computer voice telling them the information. Make Tomorrowland look like TOMORROW once again :)

REMOVE: I would take out Chip and Dale's treehouse in Mickey's ToonTown. It doesn't seem that great anymore. It's been a while since i've been in ToonTown, but I remeber that it used to have the acron thing and that's just an empty hole now. there's not a whole lot to do in it but go up and down.
REPLACE: I just watched the special features on The Little Mermaid, so my first instinct is to say the Little Mermaid ride that almost was, but that wouldn't match ToonTown. I would replace it with a toon history attraction. Perhaps something similar to the theatre on Main Street, but a little bigger and showing color cartoons from Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Chip and Dale, and more. Maybe it could also have a room where you could go and read a little bit about the characters' pasts- not like actual trivia about them, but stories from their lives, like a biography of each of the characters. It would be decorated in big pictures of the characters. I don't know if what I'm picturing would actually go well in ToonTown, but that's my idea. I would visit that more than Chip and Dale's treehouse.
