    In this vision of the future that never was, aliens do :)
    But not Monsters inc or another lazy excuse to shoehorn a property. I think the best Disney IP attraction is Buzz Lightyear. Perfect theme, perfect execution, a galactic war, not a toy playset, etc. One of the things I love about Toy story are the worlds within the toys. But recently, Disney didn't appear interested to use the Toy Story characters in a fantasy setting. Why didn't they bring back the Buzz Lightyear TV series when Toy Story 3 came out?
    This is just my opinion though :)

    Well, if they can pull off multiple AA's popping up, what's to keep them from throwing in an Abraham Lincoln, or a Muppet, or even (dare I say it?) Walt Disney himself???

    Kali's queue is more exciting to me than the actual ride itself. Every visit I make a point to walk the queue. I have only been on the ride once. That was enough.

    It's super fun on a cold day and you can ride on repeat. Otherwise, it's meh.

    The ride is absolutely nothing. Every five years or so I reride because I become convinced it can't be as substanceless as I remember and every time, it disappoints me more. There are very few attractions whose removal I think would improve a park, but Kali is one of them.

    Line is nice, though.

    I honestly don't understand the hate but it's whatever. They should focus on removing Dino Rama and then additions not replacements.

    I agree, the Laugh Floor building is also pretty large, and it's nearly 3 stories with it's sunken floor and high ceiling. They could fit a decent sized dark ride in it, something the size of Peter Pan's Flight. I don't know how big the Monster's Inc Door ride at DCA is, but a dark ride themed to Wall-E or Stitch would fit fairly well into the current Tomorrowland.

    The Stitch's Great Escape building isn't as big, they could expand it into the area where the one theater's outside exit is, but the could fit a Winnie the Pooh sized dark ride in that space, or maybe just move the Tomorrowland dance parties in that space... if they still do them, they seemed to be popular, but loud

    That will only work if everyone in the seats gets a laser.

    Why? How would that improve the park by taking away a ride?

    Addition by subtraction is only guaranteed to decrease capacity. It is more than capable at improving cohesion with a land, uniting attractions thematically, and strengthening the theme of a park.

    Kali already fits well and has nice theming but it needs to be longer like grizzly river run.

    Exactly...take the existing ride and expand it into more of a journey...Longer ride, more interesting settings, and maybe back off on the total drenching and it would be great...With the thematics of a jungle temple trek there is so much that could be done to make this the most amazing attraction in the park..
