    A Next Generation Experience...
    So as I have done a few trials at putting together a perfect Disney resort, I came to the conclusion that I kept coming back to that same point where I didn't want to go, repetitive experiences, the same themes etc. That's why I went back to my desk and started looking at a couple of things.
    [​IMG]
    First of all I checked my earlier study of a theme park's depth with its different layers, consisting out of the Inspector's Observation, The Child's Dream, The Theme Park Thrill, The Story Reference, The Eye for Detail and lastly the Geek Dominion. Here's the explanation I gave about those layers in another thread, which was sadly not finished(like most of my work. Sorry, i'm not disciplined enough to finish them usually). The first layer is The Inspector's Observation. This is the basic skeleton of a theme park, making sure that everything functions well so that a Guest can enjoy his or her day without having to face any theme park irritations. Think about a good flow of the park, enough restrooms, efficient capacity systems for attractions etc. Then secondly, we have The Child's Dream, which basically means giving this technical skeleton a cute theme so that a child feels like they are immersed into a fantasy world. Of course, we are talking about Disney so we can't simply give it a cute theme, it needs to be something more elaborate, but that's something for another layer. The third layer is The Theme Park Thrill. This basically refers to the overall experience of a theme park, is it worthy of being visited as a full-day theme park and is it something that you can enjoy without the themes(so in other words, are the attractions worth a visit). This also refers to the experience being entertaining for people of all ages. Let's move on to The Story Reference layer. This layer explains the use of stories around the park, familiar stories. This is where theming gets more details, because you might recognize certain aspects in the theming from famous Disney IP. The layer also includes the basic use of a movie-based attraction( Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Ratatouille the Ride etc.).
    [​IMG]
    The next layer is The Eye for Detail. This is where the park starts getting really interesting, because we are giving depth to themed areas. Think of small secret walkways, hidden details( a la New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World), and even original theme park stories like the stories behind classic attractions like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and The Haunted Mansion. Lastly, the Geek Dominion. This is the ultimate layer. If a visitor visits a theme park through this layer, they will completely understand why something is there and how the whole Disney resort is connected. To me, a Disney resort can be seen as the layer of a mirror between our dimension and a magical dimension. The layer of the mirror is basically the thing that connects Walt Disney with Yen Sid( yes I know, this is all very deep, but it helps to create an immersive world). That's why the ultimate backstory of a resort to me is basically that its the world between worlds. This can be concluded from the real world's influences, but the extra magic touches we experience all around the parks. Another important factor in designing a resort is using and learning from whats already there, we have Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort Paris, Tokyo Disneyland Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Shanghai Disneyland Resort. All have a lot of pros and of course some cons. Giving one positive term to each resort for me would be DLR a warm feeling of coziness, WDW space and size, DLRP beauty in theming, TDR maintenance, HKDL service, SDR orignality and advancements. This can all be used in our new resort.
    [​IMG]
    Then I looked at a list of realistic options of IP that could be used in a Disney resort, looking at relevance and popularity and also just the basic diversity in cultural representation or themes of the movies. My conclusion here were the following IPs: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Dumbo, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Winnie the Pooh, Tangled, Frozen, Wreck-it Ralph, Lilo and Stitch, The Lion King, Maleficent, Cinderella, Into the Woods, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Toy Story, Brave, Monsters. Inc, Ratatouille, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, Big Hero 6, Cars, The Marvel Movies, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Avatar, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Underland and maybe the Muppets, even though their popularity is declining.
    [​IMG]
    The next thing I looked at was a list of existing attractions, which ones were the ones that I wanted to see at my imaginary resort and which ones could inspire attractions or their own themed areas. This is where I started using something borrowed, something new. I took classic Disney attractions such as Autopia, Jungle Cruise and Haunted Mansion and gave them a modern spin, new technology, new system, new interesting factors for an ever changing audience. These changes to classic attractions would still however have the original intention of the ride, either to scare, to thrill etc.
    [​IMG]
    Lastly, I thought about ways to improve a theme park experience, what annoys me when I visit a theme park and what could be improved or just certain things that I expect to be present or available at a theme park, also to offer all of these layers, which I spoke about before. Think of long lines, high prices, transportation, food diversity, storytelling and interactive elements. That's how this new resort was born. By taking familiar movies, attractions, stories and common interests and combining that with new types of technology creates a whole new level of immersion and fun for people of all ages.
    [​IMG]
    Considering all of these things, my first theme park was born, which is a classic Disneyland type park with 11 themed areas. First of all, we have our two opening lands. Walt Disney Avenue will be your way into the park and based on Walt Disney's Story and in a way similar to Mickey Avenue at Shanghai Disneyland, just to take an approach that is more international, instead of just showcasing an American town(there will be American influences in the area though). Then you have The Gardens of Magic(again, similar to Shanghai Disneyland). I felt like making the hub a land on it's own could help for an easier overview, flow and just the possibility of adding new types of experiences to a Disneyland Park. Next, we have the four main lands, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland. All with new and familiar experiences.
    [​IMG]
    Lastly there's the addition of a few new themed areas. These are Bog Easy, Shadowlands, Timeless Riverside, World Expo and Buccaneer Bay. Bog Easy is added in sake of a logical area in which specific stories take place and specific attractions fit in and add to the connected universe. Shadowlands is a way to introduce villains to the theme parks, as they are one of Disney's most popular characters. Timeless Riverside is the introduction and showcase of classic Disney shorts, which basically started Disney's popularity back in the early 1900s. Lastly, Buccaneer Bay offers the Guests an area similar to Treasure Cove to be fully immersed in the world of pirates. I feel like Disneyland used to portray the park in several categories, astronaut/scientist, cowboy/native American, knight/princess and adventurer/pirate. Now, the pirates franchise has grown a lot in the past decades and that's the reason I feel like they could use a themed area of their own.
    [​IMG]
    Now this theme park will be completely different as it will feature a system similar to the Tapu Tapu system at Universal Studios' Volcano Bay and the Magic Band system at the Disney parks. Guests of the resort will be given a Magic Band during their stay or can purchase special Magic Bands which cost money opposed to the standard Magic Band. The Magic Band is individual and personalized with specific information(not offending someone's privacy) and will offer a much more fun and personal experience for Disney's Guests. When wishing to ride an attraction, which line exceeds 45 minutes, Guests will be given a return time so that in the mean time you can enjoy other experiences in the park, other rides, a restaurant, a shop, a show or other interactive elements of the park, such as the interactive talkers.
    [​IMG]
    Interactive talkers are either meet and greet characters, which by the way are either face characters or audio animatronic costumes similar to the talking Mickey Mouse character. The Magic Band collects experiences, just a few facts and more so that these interactive talkers can personalize your experience(similar to the planned star wars land experience, but on a larger scale and deeper level). Around the park there will also be audio animatronics which offer the same experience as meet and greet characters. They are there to add interactive elements, immersion, but also just the logic of the presence of these characters, because sometimes they don't make sense as costume characters and sometimes they aren't even able to bring popular characters such as Simba to the parks because of this.
    [​IMG]
    Other things that I thought of are enough places to find shade on hot days and enough places to go on rainy days(such as arcade walkways), the cleanliness and maintenance of the park by placing enough trash cans(based on Walt's 30 steps-rule) and by adopting a system similar to Tokyo Disneyland which keeps it's attractions working perfectly, diversity in restaurants(so not just themed buildings which all offer fastfood, but actually a wide variety of food options) and attractions( different age groups, different types of rides, different interests) and lastly, pricing. I was at Disneyland Paris a week ago and just noticed the incredibly high prices. Disney is supposed to be accessible to a very large part of the people and not a luxury experience(although it offers luxury whenever a Guest wishes to pay more), that's why Disney should offer a wider variety of cheaper and more expensive souvenirs so that all Guests are able to buy something based on the amount of money they are willing to spend.
    [​IMG]
    Outside of the main park, there will be other theme parks, water parks, stay-over destinations, entertainment centers and transportation systems that offer a perfect experience for all Guests. Some of these experiences will be announced later on, but for now I can say that there will be 3 theme parks called Meltdown Bay, Grizzly Gulch and The Lost Valley, an entertainment center similar to Disney Springs, Ikspiaru etc. called Disneytopia, at least one other gate and multiple stay-over destinations, such as the Scandinavian Resort, the Pixar All-Star Resort and the Fort Wilderness Campground and Bungalow Park. Soon I'll post some more things about the themed areas, attractions, restaurants, shows, shops and more. If any questions, recommendations, suggestions, ideas or comments in general may pop up, just let me know, either in this thread or in a private chat.

    World Expo is used as a transitional land between the fantasylands and tomorrowland and as a way to add attractions like it's a small world and the carousel of progress to the park. It will mainly be inspired by the worlds fair but will also take some influence from epcots future world.

    So let's take a magical tour around the resort now, shall we? But, where to begin? Well it all begins with driving to the resort. The land will be surrounded by an aqueduct like wall, but jollier and fantasy-like. The arches through which the roads lead to the resort have images of Disney characters on them, welcoming you and your party to another magical Disney location. Imagine an aerial view of a large resort, about the size of Walt Disney World resort(or even larger). The resort will be near the coast, offering a new way of getting to the resort, by boat, but that's something we will discuss later on.
    [​IMG]
    Now just imagine waking up in a beautiful Disney hotel room which has a view over the resort's central lake and in the back you can see Disneyland Park's Castle shining bright in the morning sun. Let's put on your magic bands and visit Disneyland Park(official name, Walt Disneyland Park). You pack your backpacks for the day and head over to the monorail station, not far away from the hotel. Luckily the monorails are very modern and you don't have to wait a lot until a train arrives. As you enter the monorail a warm voice says, ''Mind your step. Welcome aboard of the Walt Disney Resort Monorail System. Relax and take a look outside as we will provide information and try to bring you to your desired destination as soon as possible. Be cautious of the closing and opening doors during the ride and take extra care of young children in your party''.
    [​IMG]
    The monorail takes you closer and closer to the park and the excitement inside your monorail grows. You exit the Monorail and see many other Guests who are also willing to visit Disneyland Park. Disneyland Park will be accessible through all forms of transportation available at the resort. As you near the park, you will walk through Legacy Garden, a lush and green park like area, similar to what was originally envisioned for Disneyland Parc in Paris. Small streams, trees that offer shady spots, fountains, ponds, statues and flower topiaries welcome you to Disneyland Park.
    [​IMG]
    You will see the Disneyland Park Hotel which is similar to the Disneyland Hotel, but with larger walkways and overall a larger building. I felt like the Hotel serves perfectly as a way to hide the Castle for a while, instead of it being revealed before actually entering the park. Underneath the hotel building you can find the ticket booths, where other Guests can get their magic bands. Luckily, you already have one so you can skip the ticket lines and walk towards the Walt Disney Avenue Train Station, which is quite similar to the original one in Anaheim with the iconic Mickey Mouse flowerbed in front of it. Pass through the tunnels under the station and you will find yourself in the first themed area of Walt Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Avenue, which we will explore in the next post.

    Are you going to use the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise for Buccaneer Bay or is that going to be a more original land ? And what about Bog Easy ? Is it going to be similar to New Orleans Square ?

    Walt Disney Avenue:

    [​IMG]
    As you pass under the tunnels, you pass by various posters of attractions which can be found around the park. Also, you can vaguely hear familiar sounds from the Disney attractions and Disney movies. Think of things like 'Dead Men Tell No Tales', 'Welcome to the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness', 'All Who Come to This Magic Place, Welcome' and 'To Find...A Way Out *Evil Laugh*'. A plaque saying, 'Here we leave the world of today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy'. Walt Disney Avenue will serve as the opening land and the transitional land between our own real world and the new magical world. The path under the tunnels will be red, so that it feels like you are walking on a red carpet. Walt Disney Avenue is the first land that immerses Guests into the original concept of Disneyland in which Guests were supposed to feel like they were entering a movie world, starting with the land that is closest to our own reality (again the concept of the world between mirrors plays a role here). Walt Disney Avenue is themed to be a whimsical town like Shanghai Disneyland's Mickey Avenue, but more realistic like Main Street U.S.A. too. Walt's story unfolds here. Why didn't I choose for Main Street? That's because I feel that Disney parks are supposed to be targeted at an international audience and even though the concept works well in the existing parks, I felt like it was time for something new.
    [​IMG]
    Walt Disney Avenue tests all your senses and immerses you right into this new world. The sounds of a classic steam train and jolly music, the sights of a whimsical town, the smells of freshly prepared goods and just the overall sense of happiness hits you right away when seeing the beautiful and detailed buildings and of course the majestic castle at the end of Walt Disney Avenue. One of the first attractions that Guests can explore are the Walt Disney Railroad Steam Trains. Step back in time and board a vintage train in classic Americana style to take a full circle tour of Walt Disneyland Park. Hop on or off at one of the train stations which can be found in Frontierland, Adventureland, Timeless Riverside and World Expo. There will be four steam trains circling around the park, the Lilly Belle, the Dear Diane, the Rolling Roy and the Lovely Sharon. Along the way you will see various scenes and dioramas and the machinist will provide interesting facts about the park. However, you decide to leave this ride for later and start discovering the rest of the area. You could for example board one of the Walt Disney Avenue Vehicles that offer a breezy ride down the streets of this charming little town. There will be different vehicles like horse carriages and even an omnibus. Another option is the Red Trolley Line, an electric trolley cart that let's Guests enjoy the charming surroundings. One of the trolley carts will stop around the area and Walt Disney Avenue inhabitants will perform in the Jolly Trolley Stop, which includes dancing and singing, similar to the small show on Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando.
    [​IMG]
    The Central Plaza will be home to the Walt Disney Golden Carousel in which Guests can ride on one of Walt Disney Avenue's carousel horses while favorite Disney songs can be heard. The carousel is one of the largest of it's kind and is beautifully adorned with murals and golden decorations. Guests will be able to choose a seat on not one, but two levels of this carousel. Behind the carousel will be a small gazebo where you can meet various characters or enjoy musical performances by either the Walt Disney Avenue Band or one of many other artists like the Three Little Pigs or the Skeleton Dancers. On the left of central plaza are two buildings, the Town Hall and the Fire Station. At Town Hall, you can find information centers and Guest relations. You can also meet the Walt Disney Avenue Mayor and other inhabitants of the quaint little town. The Fire Station is where Guests can enjoy the Firehouse Five Plus Two show and where they can help the local fire fighters by grabbing a hold of a fire hose and extinguish cartoon like flames, similar to the ones in the Mickey Mouse short, The Fire Fighters (1930). The experience will be very similar to Goofy's Paint 'n' Play House at Tokyo Disneyland. On the right will be one other building, the Main Street Museum. Inside the Main Street Museum, you can admire the One Man's Dream Gallery in which you are able to follow the footsteps of Walt Elias Disney as a legendary story unfolds in this gallery showing various artifacts and informative exhibits.
    [​IMG]
    After exploring Central Plaza, you will be able to walk down one of the three streets of Walt Disney Avenue. There will be one Main Street leading from the entrance to Gardens of Magic and eventually Sorcerer's Castle and two other streets leading to smaller squares on the right and left sides of the area in which other attractions, shows, meet and greet options, shops and dining options will be present. Guests will also be able however to walk through one of the two arcade passageways, similar to the ones at Disneyland Paris. Just to give a clearer overview of how this will work. Just imagine Disneyland Paris' Main Street. Now, where the arcades are there, we would have the streets to the other two squares. These squares would have roads to Gardens of Magic and again a few passageways to the central Main Street, for example an open Center Street, but with arches, because if you walk from Main Street to one of the two side streets, you have to pass through the arcades. Just to avoid the confusion, let's get back to the tour... Down the central Main Street, you will find one of the most iconic experiences of the area or even the park, the Walt Disney Emporium. This will be the largest store in the park and offers apparel, plush toys, pins, candy and much more. One of the most enjoyable things about the Emporium are it's magical window displays, which have small Disney movie dioramas in it. On your right, you will find the Cookie Carnaval Shop, which will be based on the Silly Symphonies short, Cookie Carnival (1935). Follow your nose across Walt Disney Avenue for some baked cookie delight. Next to this will be the Look at the Blue Birdy Camera Shop, which sells cameras, polaroids, photopasses, photo frames etc. The name is based on the Blue Bird from the Song of the South movie.
    [​IMG]
    If you walk on, then on the right you will find the Ugly Duckling Clothier, a small shop based on the Ugly Duckling short and the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen. The shop offers different kinds of Disney outfits and wearables. Next to the shop will be a small passageway, leading to the east side street, which we will discover later on. In the side street, you can find Tony's Restaurant, an Italian restaurant based on the iconic Disney movie scenes in Lady and the Tramp. Share spaghetti and meatballs and more at this fun eatery and dine like the stars in a romantic European atmosphere. Back to Main Street. On the left you will still find the Emporium, but on the right Guests will find the Sugar Plum Salon, which will be an ice cream salon which will offer scoop ice cream of course and will be themed to the sugar plum fairy parts in Fantasia. A familiar soundtrack will play inside the salon. Then, Guests will pass by the Mad Hatter Haberdashery. Even though, the shop has it's name from the Alice in Wonderland character, it won't be fully themed to it. The exterior however will be themed to the Mad Hatter's iconic hat. Inside you will be able to find headwear in any size, colour and shape you desire. After that you will find Center street.
    [​IMG]
    On the corner of Main Street and Center street, you will find the Carthay Circle Theatre. Inside will be the Mickey and the Enchanted Projector Attraction. This attraction will be a 4D theatre with audio animatronics and physical effects and will send you from the Movie Theatre right into Disney movies and shorts while Mickey tries to avoid all the chaos. Just imagine family thrilling scenes through shorts and movies like Mickey and the Beanstalk, Plutopia and the Three Little Pigs. Next to this attraction will be one of the main restaurants of the park, the Fantasia Hall. The restaurant will be themed to a Versailles Palace like building with beautiful murals of Fantasia scenes. The restaurant will serve dishes from French, Spanish, Italian, Greek and American cuisine. After that, you will pass by Mother Goose Melodies, a cottage in which lunch meals will be served, think of toast, sandwiches and more. On the corner near the Gardens of Magic will be Goofy's Candy Company. An industrial building in which Goofy has placed one of his company's stores. In this shop you will follow the sweet smell of all the various types of candy.
    [​IMG]
    Moving to the other side of Main Street, Guests will find the Yo Yo Flamingo Ice Lolly Shop. In front of the shop will be a flamingo pond, but inside will be the real fun. This shop will serve popsicles and will be themed to the Fantasia part. Next to that will be the McDuck Arcade. Gamble on it and play some classic American Arcade games in this hall owned by the money-craving Scrooge McDuck. Then you will find Mickey's House of Amaze, the magic shop of Main Street. Just think of your traditional magic shop with Mickey the Magician theming. In the store you can buy magic items or watch cast members perform a trick. Then again you will find the Center Street. If you cross the street you will again find the Emporium, so that's why we will now explore the side streets. From Central Plaza onto the East side street you will again find different shops and restaurants on both sides of the streets. At first you will walk past the Main Street Museum and the Look at the Blue Birdy Shop. Then on the right you will find the Lola Fish Restaurant. This will be an Asian restaurant themed to the Lola Fish in the Fantasia film. Next to this restaurant will be the Nine Old Men Bar. This Bar will serve special drinks and will be themed to a 1920s Californian bar in which you can see various sketches of cartoon characters. The Nine Old Men were Walt Disney's Core animators, Les Clark, Marc Davis, Ollie Johnston, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, John Lounsbery, Wolfgang Reitherman and Frank Thomas. True fans can immerse themselves into a small bar with thousands of tiny details, waiting to be found and understood.

    [​IMG]

    Facing the bar will be the Pin Collector shop. This small shop will offer pins with every character or attraction you desire. You can even make design your own pins or of course collect the limited edition pins. Again on the right you will find a shop, the Crystal Palace Jewelry Store. This store will be similar to the other jewelry stores in the park which offer wearables, wine glasses or other souvenirs. The building will be themed to the Crystal Palace restaurant at the Magic Kingdom Park in Orlando. Then you will find the Roy O. Disney Theatre. Inside will be a venue where world-class entertainment will be hosted. The show will be sure to switch or change from time to time, but initially starts with the Golden Mickeys show, a musical, revue-style stage show presented in the style of an awards ceremony with characters from Disney films being nominated and awarded for different categories. It will be a 35-minute long show and enjoyable for Guests of all ages.
    [​IMG]
    The Theatre will be directly at the right side end of Center Street and faces the Walt Disney Avenue Hotel(an attraction, so not the Disneyland Park Hotel at the park's entrance). Past Center Street, on the left you will see the Fantasia Hall again and a passageway towards the Mickey and the Enchanted Projector attraction. On the other side of the street will be the Laugh-O-Gram Office, a small walkthrough and shop in which you can buy Laugh-O Gram merchandise and learn about the short-lived film studio in Kansas City. Next to the Laugh-O-Gram Office will be the Club 33 Lounge. Club 33 is a set of private clubs located in several Disney parks and will now find its way to this Disneyland Park. However, it will have a public and a private seating area so that it doesn't completely shut out a large group of Guests from the experience. Lastly the Red Wagon Inn will be a larger buffet restaurant themed to the unbuilt Red Wagon Inn restaurant that was supposed to be built. It will be themed to the horse-drawn delivery wagon which used to serve Swift Premium Foods in the 1900s. Facing the Red Wagon Inn will be the Broken Toy Shop, a toy shop themed to the Silly Symhonies short. A miniature train will race around the store and other small interactive elements will amaze Guests in this cute traditional toy shop. Next to this shop we will again find the Goofy Candy Company.
    [​IMG]
    If we turn back to Central Plaza and turn to the West Side Street, we will first see the Emporium on the right and the Fire Station on the left. The whole right side until Center Street will be occupied with entryways to the Emporium. On the left you will first of all find the Practical Pig Hardware shop, a small shop in which you can find The Three Little Pigs merchandise and practical themed Disney items. It will be similar to the themed building in Mickey Avenue at Shanghai Disneyland. Then, you will walk into the Music Land shop, themed to another classic Silly Symphonies short. Here you will again find merchandise and will be able to enjoy different types of music. Then, there will be the Rhapsody in Brew restaurant, a quick service based on the Rhapsody in Brew in Fantasia 2000. Then, Jaccus' Fruit Cart will offer healthy meals and smoothies in a Greek Fantasia atmosphere. Connecting to Jaccus' Fruit Cart will be Bacchus' Winery, a Mediterranean restaurant themed to the Greek God of wine. A central fountain in the restaurant will be the highlight here, as it is themed to Bacchus himself enjoying the red wine flowing around him, which is in reality water with projectors pointed at it.
    [​IMG]
    At the end of the Center Street on the West side will be the Walt Disney Avenue Hotel. Get disoriented in this mad hotel which holds a surprise in every hallway and room. It will be a walkthrough madhouse with turntables, a slide, a mirror labyrinth and more. The last part of Walt Disney Avenue towards Gardens of Magic will feature three more dining options and one more shop. On the left, you will find the Creator's Workshop, a quick service themed to a big manor in which a mysterious artist has worked on cartoons, movies and theme park designs. Dine amongst these concept arts and see how they come to live from time to time. Next to this will be the True-Life Adventure Collection, a shop themed to the Disneyland series. It will be themed to a collection of a traveler from Walt Disney Avenue who has often visited Adventureland. Lastly, facing the shop and the Creator's Workshop will be Walt's. This restaurant will be very similar to the one that can be found on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland Paris. It will have two levels, even offering a reserved area for the nighttime shows. Oh, and of course let's not forget about the Arcade passageways and on the corner will be Goofy's Sports Club, a Casey's Corner like quick service in which you can watch the Goofy Sports shorts. The East Side Arcade will be the History Arcade, showcasing the history of Walt Disney in small exhibits. The West Side Arcade is the Future Arcade in which you can see exhibits about future films, expansions etc.

    Buccaneer Bay will be based on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and will feature nods to the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Also, Bog Easy is a smaller area themed to the southern cities and mysterious bayous of Louisiana.

    Thanks for the info and one more question; does this mean you'll probably use The Princess and The Frog for Bog Easy ?
