Does it have to be for a new or existing store

Either is fine.
All of these FastPasses are meant to be as open-ended as possible.​

Journey to the New World
@spacemt354

A slow moving omnimover with some history mixed in, feels very Epcot-y in a really good way. In some castle parks, I would say this would clash with the tone of the park. But with Paris it works amazingly well with their focus on a slower paced, more beautiful park.

Volando Sobre Mexico with the Three Caballeros
@Brer Panther

A simple concept but a strong one. Essentially a better version of the 3 Cabs ride from Epcot. But the similarities don't hurt it much because its all the way in Hong Kong. I worry this might be too small scale to anchor a land. But Peter Pan's Flight is essentially the anchor for Fantasyland, so a similar ride could work as an anchor for Tijuana Square. Especially since Hong Kong doesn't have Peter Pan.

Vikings of the Amber Sea
@InspectorSpacetime

Can never go wrong with a spiritual successor to Pirates of the Caribbean! And Vikings is a concept that I feel has been really underutilized by Disney. Familiar, yet unique! Only issue is that castle parks all have Pirates already (other than Hong Kong! Man, Hong Kong has nothing lol. I might have to make a video about that haha). You don't specify what park this Square is going in, so I'll assume it is either a new castle park of Hong Kong, otherwise you'd have the spiritual successor and the original within a 5 minute walk of eachother haha​

The Clockwork Palace
@DashHaber

I love this idea! I love it so much I did something similar back in Sorcerer's Apprentice Season 4. It is a fun concept and really unique. I love tying in an original character! A simple concept, but a strong one. I would like a slight bit more of what the story would be. Even something as simple as adding "And then things go wrong" would imply more of a story rather than just a tour. But what you have is great.

Hauntings Beneath the Sea
@Suchomimus

Alright, 4 semi-colons in just the bonus might be stretching the definition of "one sentence" just a tad bit lol. Especially since the concept is a simple, yet effective one. Could have easily been descibred in a bit simpler or more streamlined fashion. It's easy to get lost in the details here and lose sight of the big picture. This would be a strong attraction though! An under the sea haunted Mansion/20,000 Leagues mash up would be an amazing attraction! I worry that this might be too similar to just a mash up of those two to stand on its own. But if the only real problem with an attraction is being similar to two of the best dark rides Disney has ever made, well... that's a good problem to have haha

Colors of Music
@Outbound

I love the concept of "dancing" rides like this! Just seems like such a fun use of trackless ride system! I worry this might be slightly too small scale to anchor a land. It seems very similar to the flat ride from Cars Land. But this would be a ton of fun and a great fit for your land! Celebrating the culture and becoming a centerpiece the way Teacups serve as a centerpiece to Fantasyland!

A Whale of a Ride I tell you lads, a whale of a ride it's true
@Imagineer Sroo

I love the idea of using EMV tech to recreate turbulent waves and stormy waters! And a vaguely Moby Duck (Curse you website censors!!!!) themed ride could be really interesting! I'm not sure how convincingly you could recreate being on the open sea though. Historically that has been a problem with any rides where wide open spaces seem near impossible. Especially with a "dry" ride system like an EMX. I feel like what you are going for might have been better off as either a boat ride (maybe rapids?) or a simulator of some sort (I remember back when Star Tours 2 was rumoured to be a roofless simulator in a projection dome, that could work here!). But despite the worries of practicality of the environment, you get big bonus points for the uniqueness of the concept!

Voyage of Ra
@Evilgidgit

Much like Vikings, Egyptian mythology is something I feel is a virtually untapped mine for Disney park attractions! This is another ride that feels very Epcoty. Especially World Showcase. a mix of myths and history. Learn the stories by living them. There's enough of a focus on the fantasy here that I don't think it would clash with the storybook tone of a castle park though. Overall, a really fun ride idea!

The Subway
@AceAstro

A People Mover type experience is always a welcome addition! Especially through a land that could have such unique visuals! My only concern is that "Square" lands are usually rather small, especially compared to how large Tomorrowland is. I'm not sure there would be enough space here for this ride to last longer than like one minute haha. But still, even if it is short this would be a great experience! Usually I would say this might be too small scale or simple for an anchor ride, but your land sounds so focused on dining and shopping that a simple ride focused on scenic views seems perfect.​

Old Town Road Square
@Disney Dad 3000

Hey there D-Dad! :D It’s been a while!

Since you’re just now joining our One Sentence Competition, you’ve missed the part where every challenge takes place inside a Disney Castle Park. While a new pavilion for Epcot’s World Showcase is technically not answering the prompt, Old Town Square is actually in all other regards very much in the proper spirit.

This works well to bring a multitude of smaller countries into World Showcase. While the park already has a surplus of European settings, Prague offers something just different enough – and with enough variety of food & retail & such – to stand apart. I noted in an earlier review (one written before you posted) how similar Square lands are to World Showcase pavilions, and your proposal bears that out.

Incidentally, it’s great to see so many entries arriving during the deadline extension!


Duckburg Square
@NigelChanning09

Duckburg is a natural choice for a theme park land, especially as a way to replace or improve ToonTown. Scrooge’s Money Bin makes for the perfect “weenie” & centerpiece. Duckburg is not particularly suited for this particular challenge…in fact, it fits the upcoming Final Challenge much better! Since Duckburg is a cartoon world, one that’s only vaguely inspired by real world cities (primarily the cultural wasteland that is Burbank, CA), it cannot offer the worldly shopping or dining of a New Orleans Square.​
Ah crap. My bad! Had only casually followed along and didn't catch that.

Main Street Fastpass: Walt's Time
aaf482372LARGE.jpg

The six windows of the Emporium at the Magic Kingdom have been given a facelift to reflect the films of Walt Disney's time in animation (rather fitting since this park was one of Walt's last big ideas)--Snow White and Cinderella's windows remain, albeit getting updated visuals; and in the case of Cinderella, moving to where the Little Mermaid currently sits -- but they are joined by images of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket in Geppetto's workshop, Peter Pan and the Darling children about to fly off to Neverland, Mowgli and Baloo enjoying the "bare necessities" of life and the gang from the Hundred Acre Wood saying "hip-hip-Pooh-ray for the Piglet and the Pooh".

Tomorrowland Fastpass: Space Mountain -- Glorious Galaxy
nasa_northern_lights_satellite_1_2_453c52bd-dd95-44e9-970a-2dc791742744.jpg

The Aurora Borealis is often synonymous with winter's beauty, and it can even be seen from space, so come Christmastime, Space Mountain becomes a bit more beautiful, involving a sequence where riders pass right through the famous lights.

Fantasyland Fastpass: Royal Dance Corps
08%20Show%20of%20cartoon%20movie%20'Beauty%20and%20the%20Beast'.jpg

In the spirit of Beauty and the Beast or Cinderella, these skilled ballroom dancers demonstrate their prowess in the Fantasyland courtyard throughout the day, demonstrating waltzes, polkas, tangos and gavottes, and each performance ends with a few lucky guests being able to join them for a dance, as well.

Adventureland Fastpass: Regarding Piranhas
648063966_7718051b68_b.jpg

"Piranhas are viscious creatures, with sharp teeth, cold, dead eyes and an insatiable thirst for blood...just like my (insert target here)." (I've never rode the Disneyland Jungle Cruise, so I don't know if they already do this joke or not.)

Frontierland Fastpass: Mary Sue
800px_COLOURBOX9783115.jpg

So named because of her deliberately overly-cutesy, no-flaws nature, this adorable little tyke puts her country spin on the classic children's song "The Teddy Bears' Picnic"...but that doesn't stop Melvin, Buff and Max from reacting negatively to how cutesy the act is.

The Moon Goddess
@Tux

Ooooh more of the popular culture/mythology focus but this time with a more unique ride system. An intriguing twist. This is probably the myths I'm the least familiar with so it is a bit tough to judge. But should be really fun for a Chinese audience.

Ghosts, Ghouls, & Mortal Fools
@Disney Dad 3000

Super high tech an amazing and fun! Not much to say about this one other than praise honestly. Though being in Epcot instead of a Castle Park might lose some technicality points here lol. I would've liked a very slight bit more of a story being told for something so grand. Even something as simple as "And you'll be guided by the ghost of an old groundskeeper" or "And Liam Neeson will narrate"

E-Ticket Ambience

@tcool123

I adore the idea of a truly grand walkthrough like this! It would be such a great experience and add so much to the land. I worry that with how grand and over the top the queues of things like Forbidden Journey and Flight of Passage are, that this might fall short of expecations for an anchor. People might go through this expecting to wind up at the entrance to the newest E-Ticket boundary pushing experience. It is something I would love, but I worry how a walkthrough of this scale could fare in the modern theme park landscape.

Vineyard Maze
@NateD1226

Usually I would say that this attraction might be too calm or small scale for an anchor. But your land feels almost more like a World Showcase Pavilion than a castle park land, so this attraction feels right at home. I worry that it might feel underwhelming in a castle park though. But as a compliment to your land it works amazingly!​

In case anyone missed it, here again is Challenge Nine which just began two hours ago:

CHALLENGE NINE
FASTPASS ROUND

enhance


While we’ve been exploring our perfect Disney Castle Park, we’ve been slowly gathering FastPasses. (They still use the paper system in this park.) And wouldn’t you know it, all of those FastPass windows are now open at the same time!

What that means is Challenge Nine offers up multiple FastPass tasks. This is a way to explore the finer details of our Castle Park. It’s also a way to get a whole lot of points really quickly! Each mini-challenge is 1 sentence each (and worth 1 point each). You can do as many or as few as you wish. Just remember there will be medals handed out for each FastPass task.


MAIN STREET FASTPASS
Propose a new Emporium window display

TOMORROWLAND FASTPASS
Create a seasonal overlay for Space Mountain
(in the style of Hyperspace Mountain or Ghost Galaxy)

FANTASYLAND FASTPASS
Propose a new Fantasyland streetmosphere show

ADVENTURELAND FASTPASS
Write a new joke for Jungle Cruise

FRONTIERLAND FASTPASS
Create a new character for Country Bear Jamboree


-Rules-
Use only a single sentence per FastPass to describe your idea. You may also use one image per FastPass if you wish. Note that medals will be given out for each FastPass, so this is a great opportunity to grab more points! The deadline is Tuesday, August 25th, at midnight EST.

-Tips-

KISS – Keep is simple, silly! With only one sentence, you can’t get too detailed. Think of this as an elevator pitch.

-Judging Criteria-
Is it creative?
Is it realistic?
Does it fit visually/thematically?

Any questions, please ask! Now good luck everyone! Create!

"Over on your right, you'll see a family of tree frogs (one frog rests on an abandoned banjo) who; according to legend; believe that someday they'll find some kind of connection to a rainbow, but they won't find where my favorite little mug went off to, so I have to ask that you to keep an eye out around here- Good grief, the comedian’s a bear! (points to a sun bear sniffing a gold colored coffee mug that says "Comedy" on a stump nearby).”
Frontierland Fastpass: Louisa Anna
Coming in from little ole New Orleans with her diatonic accordion, Louisa Anna makes a swinging appearance to the playhouse, bringing with her a rambunctious, festive Creole spirit much to the chagrin of some of the bears; who occasionally banter with her about it.
Bonus: Ole London Resort
Connected to Fantasyland, Ole London Resort is a romanticized version of Edwardian set London with four wings easily identified by their architectural style: Lambeth (Elizabethan style) and Southwark (Tudor style) and City of London; which is also where the front lobby is; (Baroque style) and City of Westminster (Gothic revival style), a miniature mock River Thames divides CoL and CoW from Southwark and Lambeth.

Tijuana itself is not so wonderful
I honestly didn't know that. I just picked Tijuana because I thought "Tijuana Square" sounded better than something like "Mexico Square".

Anyhow...

Main Street: New Emporium Window Display
When Halloween descends on the Magic Kingdom, the Emporium's window displays are temporarily swapped out for new, spookier ones featuring the Disney villains - Ursula in her lair, Scar and the Hyenas, the Pink Elephants from Dumbo, Jafar (as a cobra), Dr. Facilier, and Oogie Boogie - all of them brought to life with a combination of projections, static figures with just a bit of movement, and even a bit of fog!

Tomorrowland: Space Mountain Seasonal Overlay
To celebrate April Fool's Day, Space Mountain gets a one-day-only overlay based on one of the cartoons that Disney has acquired with the FOX buyout, Futurama - in Space Mountain: From New New York to the Moon, riders become new employees at Planet Express and join Fry, Bender and Leela on a delivery to Lunar Park.

Fantasyland: Streetmosphere Show
Every so often in Storybook Circus, the Dumbo's Flying Circus Parade livens up the land with thousands of amazing animals, clumsy clowns, and even an appearance from Dumbo the Flying Elephant himself (an elaborate puppet) - of course, the Ringmaster proudly leads the way atop a majestic horse.

Adventureland: A New Joke For the Jungle Cruise
"Hey, I know those guys; their names are Bob, Bob and Bob - and that rhino at the bottom of the tree, he's trying to make a shishka-BOB."

Frontierland: New Character For the Country Bear Jamboree
Jack E. Lopp, a banjo-playing jackalope who hides his horns under a large top hat, constantly interrupts the show and begs Henry to give him a job - when reminded that he's not a bear, he just shrugs and goes, "Well, nobody's perfect."

Main Street Fastpass: Silly Symphonies

220px-Three_Little_Pigs_poster.jpg


The six windows of Disneyland’s Emporium have become a tribute to the Silly Symphonies, paying tribute to the early and influential shorts that had been Disney’s experimental success by depicting scenes from such shorts as The Three Little Pigs, Music Land, The Skeleton Dance, Tortoise and the Hare, The Old Mill, and Flowers and Trees.

Tomorrowland Fastpass: Space Mountain – Close Encounters

rsz_wotw1953_3093.png


As Halloween rolls around and the classic sounds of haunting theremins fill the air at Space Mountain, your rocket flight might hit some unexpected turbulence as you cross paths with an invading alien armada…and they have you locked in their sights!

Fantasyland Fastpass: Geppetto’s Puppet Performers

DancingPuppets.jpg


Gather ‘round by the Pinocchio Village Haus, as Geppetto shows off his latest creations: life-size puppets who can sing and dance, and show they’ve got no strings to hold them down!

Adventureland Fastpass: Why’d It Have to Be Snakes?!

snansa7361211.jpg


“Now, here’s a fun fact: this snake that we’re passing by is hated by both archaeologists and non-mainstream musicians. That’s right: the Indy scene doesn’t like it very much.”

Frontierland Fastpass: Paul R.

Cartoon_Polar_Bear_Wearig_a_Scarf_and_Santa_Hat_Very_Excited_About_a_Gift_He_Is_Holding_Royalty_Free_Clipart_Picture_101108-236510-306053.jpg


Traveling from far up north with his hurdy-gurdy, Paul R. is a polar bear who brings a chilly disposition as he plays his songs…at least until Teddi Beara appears, and he becomes a stammering mess!​

Main Street:
Princess and the Frog Display
Magic Kingdom’s new Emporium window display focuses on Princess and the Frog to promote the upcoming ride, and it magically transforms every few minutes from a fire-fly lit jazz ensemble of Tiana, Naveen, and Louis at Mama Odie's Tree to a darkened alligator-filled bayou where blacklight reveals the figures of Dr.Facilier and his otherworldly friends.

Tomorrowland
Toy Story Frontier Rockets
As part of Hong Kong Disneyland’s Pixar Fest (imported due to the success of Pixar films in Hong Kong), Space Mountain becomes Toy Story Frontier Rockets, where a play-pretend game of space cowboys sends Woody, Buzz, and the most popular characters of all four films on an outer space adventure (each given a new role to play in this wacky “Intergalactic Old West” narrative), and makes heavy use of the ride’s projection screens and the movies' energetic scores.

Fantasyland
Blue! Pink! with the The Good Fairies
Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather come out of Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle to ask guests if a new dress should be blue or pink, and the ensuing argument results in misplaced spells accidentally changing the color of things all around them (through projection mapping), including the Peter Pan’s Flight clock faces, the roof of the carousel, and a tower of Sleeping Beauty Castle (only visible from the back).

Adventureland
"The Enchanted Jungle Room"
Skippers now ”sing like the animatronic birdies sing”, to the tune of “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room”: In the jungle jungle jungle jungle jungle cruise/ In the jungle jungle jungle jungle jungle cruise/ All the crocs are props and the apes have screws/ In the jungle jungle jungle jungle jungle cruise.

Frontierland
Father Dill Wilbur
Father Dill Wilbur is a Country Bear priest who sings “Old Country Church,” easily identified by his graying fur, circular spectacles, a powerful, perfect-for-sermons voice, and gentle nature.

Bonus: Hong Kong Disneyland opens the Glacier Bay Resort, a single building deluxe-level hotel based around the never built Glacier Bay land, featuring year round snow and extensive rock work around the towering copper laboratories, observatories, and structures of an arctic research facility, complimenting the park's existing hotels.
