    My Ideas For WDW

    ~*The Magic Kingdom*~

    ~*Disney's Animal Kingdom*~

    ~Discovery Island~

    The Festival of the Lion King - The Animal Kingdom's most beloved show finds a new home inside the Tree of Life.

    ~Africa~

    Tarzan Rocks! - The DinoLand musical comes home to Africa.

    ~Asia~

    ~Beastlie Kingdomme~ - the wet dream of all AK fans, the kingdom where mythical beasts come to life finally opens its mysterious doors to Disney's Animal Kingdom. You all probably know the rides and attractions that come with this land so I will no longer elaborate on it.

    ~The Amazon~

    Amazon River Adventure - Take a rattan boat raft ride through the famed Amazon river and marvel at the beauty of the many birds who call this land home, come encounter and actually touch the elusive pink dolphin, play around with the slow Sloth, watch out for the lurking jaguar and have a harrowing experience with the deadly Piranha.

This intense innovative new coaster type attraction combines the thrills of roller coasters and the experience of EMVs as we go through an ancient temple and anger a sinister Snake God. Trouble starts as soon as we lock ourselves inside the sacrificial chamber and the walls reveal thousands of snakes slowly slithering towards you. Things don't get any better when we ride an old mine train and are pursued by an angry giant anaconda and are ultimately wrapped in its coils ready for feeding.

    THAT was a DOODLE?

    THEY WERE AMAZING!

    I'd like to see your best work if that was a doodle.



    I like the ideas, but in the Studios, too many ideas rely on PIXAR movies, IE., Monsters Inc. and the Incredibles. (but I like the Edna show idea)

    Thanks guys, Geyser Mountain is actually one of the rides that was supposed to go to Disneyland Paris for its Phase 2.

    ImaginEAR, I also noticed a bit of Pixar overkill at the studios but I can't see them fitting in anywhere else.

    thanks Epcot28guy :)

    I doodled a couple more pictures , with a brief description of the attraction..:)

    Lights! Camera! Dreams! at the Disney-MGM Studios
    [​IMG]

    LCD, follows is set at the studios Plaza with the Chinese theater as the backdrop. The show incorporates music, special light effects, projection screens, dozens of performers and streetmosphere to tell the story of a small town girl who dreams of making it big in Hollywood.

    The show actually begins an long before the actual showtime as streetmosphere performers take their spots on Hollyood boulevard and lets guests feel as if they really are in Hollywood. Then just before sunset, the music queues and a big bus comes down the street and out comes our heroine singing to the tune of "The Sound of Music". The streetmosphere perfermors then pitch in as they help the girl fulfill her dreams of becoming a movie star.

    Germany Pavillion with Castle Neuschwanstein at EPCOT
    [​IMG]

    Take a tour of Germany's most famous castle, The Castle Neuschwanstein. Be warned for lost spirits reside within the walls of this majestic castle.

    The Castle Neuschwanstein Mystery Tour will be one of the most unique experiences in all of EPCOT as you are suddenly transported back in time by the mysterious powers of the magic mirror (courtesy of Snow White) and witness first hand the "real life" Snow White and how she escapes the evil queen. (this is not a ride)

    That's really, really good. I really like the concept for "Lights, Cameras, Dreams!". I'm guessing that the hat is gone, right?

    Yup! The Hat will be taken off to accomodate the show, it will be full of great songs from famous movies including Disney songs. It will be shown twice a night at the same time as Fantasmic! (the best time to watch would be the first show during Sunset, both shows will have the streetmosphere performers beforehand) it will be timed in a way that guests could watch both Fantasmic! and LCD at the same night. One of the highlights of the show would be the love medley where the heroine (I'm not sure what to name her yet) is taken on a tour of the city by the "leading man". Songs in this segment include "Up Where We Belong", "I Will Always Love You", "A Whole New World", "So this is Love", "My Heart Will Go On" and many more.

    Thunder Mesa - There will be a major expansion of Frontierland which includes a re-routing of the Rivers of America to make room for "Thunder Valley" which includes a classic "western" town called "Thunder Mesa" which sits in the shadow of both "Big Thunder Mountain" and "Geyser Mountain".

    I made a sketch featuring the Thunder Mesa Railroad Station with Geyser Mountain in the backdrop: [​IMG]

    That drawing of thunder mesa with the train looks amazing. Geyser mountain could also house the Western River Expedition as well. 2 E tickets that I am dying to ride and will forever hate disney for not building in one building.

    Yeah, i was planning to add in Western River Expedition after the initial expansion of MK.

    My Expansion Plan:

    Year One: The "kingdom" parks receive much of the attention for this year, with "minor" additions EPCOT and Disney-MGM

    Magic Kingdom = A Major expansion which includes a major remodeling and expansion of Fantasyland, remodelling and slight modification of Tomorrowland (demolition of the Indy Speedway), construction of the new mountains (Fire, Geyser and the Forbidden Mountains) and major expansion of Frontierland (with Geyser Mountain and Thunder Mesa, plus rerouting the rivers of America)

    Disney's Animal Kingdom = Construction of 2 new lands: The Amazon and Beastlie Kingdomme

    EPCOT and the Disney-MGM Studios = receives a new stage show. EPCOT = Rythyms of the World; D-MGM = Lights! Camera! Dreams! Epcot also receives a new country and 2 new mountains and Disney-mGM receives Cinemagic.

    Year Two = EPCOT and Disney-MGM catch up to MK and Ak

    EPCOT = Major remodelling of Future World with the addition of a people mover spanning all the pavillions, Mission:Space becomes part of the Space Pavillion, Test Track becomes part of the Transportation Pavillion with the return of "World of Motion". The Universe of Energy becomes its own Pavillion with Stormrider as an added attraction. World Showcase receives 3 new countries (Russia, Africa, Australia) and 3 new attractions are added (Venetian Gondolas at Italy, The Crystal Palace at the UK, The Neuschwannstein Castle at Germany) and Illuminations is upgraded into the extended "One World" version.

    Disney-MGM Studios= The entire park is zoned reinforcing the indivdual lands, The construction of Sci-Fi City, Big City U.S.A., The Studios Lot, and Maroon Studios as well as the construction of the Hollywood themed Autopia.

    MK and AK = MK will receive a "complete" version of Cinderellabration: Lights of Romance. AK will receive its first night show: "Noah's Ark" set in the lake bordered by Asia, The Amazon and Dinoland.

    I'm gonna try and draw new maps for the modified parks, i'll post them as soon as their finished :D
