    Okay, I will admit it's the best sci-fi movie with Ernest Borgnine and Slim Pickens I've ever seen. :D

    The funny thing is, over in Florida we more or less got a sequel to ATIS using the same tech as Star Tours...and it was terrible! :D

    My family and I rode Body Wars in '93 (so far my only trip to WDW, and it was a GREAT year to be there! :D) We all got motion-sick, which never happens to us on Star Tours. That was a one-and-done for us. On the other hand, Cranium Command turned out to be my favorite thing in all of WDW, and I ended up seeing it eight times.

    Frankly, SWL looks and sounds amazing. BUT- it and Marvel should have anchored a third Anaheim park.

    They could have called it "Migraine Land." :D

    (I know, it could have been awesome. I just picture a park full of wall-to-wall explosions, cos-play and smug characters bickering.)

    Sorry if this has been DISGUST already but will Star Tours still exist in Tomorrowland once the SWL opens?

    I don't know if I'm less excited about Pandora or Star Wars. They both register as a zero to me. I was honestly more excited about the Carousel of Progress at WDW getting a new paint job last summer than either of these projects.

    My 2 cents.

    As a kid I enjoyed the original Star Tours (I can't stand the newer version), but I'd like to see an attraction much closer to Tomorrowland's concept.

    What's the thematic connection between Marvel and SWL? Would Anaheim's third gate have been "Movie land" in this scenario?

    I don't have a problem with SWL and Marvel in DL/DCA as long as they are well executed and respect the history - especially when it comes to DL. After the SWL and Marvel expansion areas are developed, Anaheim really only has one shot - the third gate site - at major expansion. That site needs to be developed in a way that allows for very long term growth, and I'm not sure what amounts to a studios park is the best option.

    They might not have a thematic connection but I think they would appeal to a similar audience.

    Sure, but that's not necessarily a good thing. To say nothing of the importance of theme to how Parks & Resorts works, it's probably a big part of the reason why Marvel is going in DCA and Star Wars in DL - it makes it easier to sell vacations.

    I once put out the idea of having the park be based on the universe with different interstellar destinations. Star Wars, Asgard, Pandora, etc.

    Asgard is the central land and travel between lands is done by Bifrost themed tunnels.

    It could be called Curious Constance World since it would house all my favorite things.

    Although, I hope if they do ever build a third gate, it's more of a series of different themes like DL and DCA are rather than one or two movie lands. Seems like if you have an entire park based on Star Wars and Marvel , how do you appeal to the people who don't give two figs about either of them???

    So here's a quick list of things off the top of my head that I think would make a great third gate. It's a Combo of what I want to see and what I think Disney would actually do. Let's get the obvious ones out of the way first.

    1. More Star Wars (basically the third gates version of Frontierland)
    2. More Marvel. (Third gates version of TL)
    3. West coast version of the World Showcase using some of he more popular countries from WDW and some new ones. I would like to see a Mary Poppins ride in London. BATB in France. Most of the showcase would be IP free.
    4. A dark enchanted forest that would House some villains rides.
    5. Adventureland The remix.( Maybe more of a Polynesian feel ?) - so many possibilities for Adventureland and no room at DL - this could be anchored by a suspended Aladdin E ticket. (Or Aladdin could go in one of the world showcase countries) Or the third gates take on Adventureland could be Pandora.
    6. Give me Tron somewhere.

    Honorable mentions:

    Incredibles E ticket
    Up D ticket
    Inside Out version of ATIS
    Boat ride ( something original. Non IP)
    Water ride (got nothing right now)
