Well, I'm stumped. I can't think of anything. XD
I think that's part of why this is a fun final round. The core areas of the Disney castle parks (Main Street, Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Adventureland) are great themes and offer room for plenty of variety within them, so it's a challenge to try and come up with a land that can capture that same feeling.

I already did a land themed around mythology with Olympus Square, so what do I do now? Well, here's something...

Mysteryland

BigComboTrailer.jpg


Welcome to New York at the time of the Great Depression, as seen through the lens of film noir; where the battle between justice and evil is never-ending, thrusting us into the fray and joining detectives and perpetrators, cops and robbers in an exciting (yet safe for families to enjoy) world where anything can happen.

BONUS E-Ticket: On The Case of the Gilded Lilly, a two-way trackless ride system pits guests as either the undercover agents of hard-boiled detective Christopher Club or as members of the mob family of Club's longtime foe, Marco "Shark" Fortunato, with Club's team trying to stop the Fortunatos from their latest crime, stealing the famed Gilded Lilly (the pride and joy of the Copieux family, the richest family in town), and Fortunato's team trying to cover their tracks -- but who will prevail?

BONUS C-Ticket: The library of the Copieux mansion plays host to Whodunit?, a farcical comedy show playing off the tropes of the classic murder mystery genre.

BONUS A-Ticket: Although you can meet Club, the Copieux family and even the Fortunatos here in Mysteryland, there's nothing like The Mean Streets, which brings the ongoing fight of Christopher Club and the Fortunato family to the streets, as Streetmosphere stunt performers get into stunningly realistic altercations right before our eyes.

NATURE’S WONDERLAND
97E11DF5-806F-4336-BB64-A37306118FC1.png
Nature’s Wonderland is a place where magic meets nature, in a vibrant mystical forest where your the size of a fairy & can meet the bugs & birds; eat fresh fruit, salads, & more garden inspired cuisine like parfaits, take a flight with the fairies, buy miniatures (get it, cause your small), & make your way through the forest in all four seasons.

A: Fairy Hollow
This new immersive meet & greet location for Tink allows guests to explore fairy hollow (or at least a small portion of it) to their hearts desire, while also acting as a great place to charge guests for an overpriced photo let guests capture a magical moment (especially at night when the area is all lit up).
C: Flight Of The Fairies
This low-scale dark ride has guests join the fairies on a flight through the hollow while riding “ladybugs” as they see fairies living their lives, birds soaring through the sky, & caterpillars seeking food.
E: 4 Seasons Drift This quite literal log flume (which takes place mostly inside) takes guests through the four seasons as the water pulls them through the forest, taking them through summer were the river carries them along through a peaceful forest (full of vibrant animatronic animals) until a bear starts looking for food & pushes you along faster & shakes your “boat” as you go down the dips of the river, then fall brings windy weather to the scene as guests; twist, turn, & drop through the red & orange forest; next, winter may freeze up the water, but the snow storm brings whats left of the water blazing through the chilly leafless forest, with the climax taking place in spring as a rainstorm brings drop after drop after drop, but things end peacefully; as you go past the forest when its full of colorful flowers, vibrant animals, & fully leafed trees as guests get off the ride.

* * WINTERLAND * *

Winterland is the love child of Discovery Bay and Epcot’s Switzerland Pavilion (Matterhorns for everyone!), where every day is the winter solstice and the perennial holiday spirit is only rivaled by a spirit of adventure, featuring a snow-capped village which combines Alpine and Steampunk styles to bridge Fantasyland and Tomorrowland (*at least in American parks, land location varies for others) and a ridge of icy mountains, a place whose mysteries inspire folk tales and draw adventurers from across the globe like a siren’s call.

c5122e677edb85f3512f5e89e1e4db1d.jpg

A-Ticket: Sir Reginald Cuckoo, the founder of Winterdale (the land’s village) was by no means an ordinary fellow, and now in Cuckoo Manor Tours, guests can walk through the rooms he once called home, including increasingly abstract hallways, libraries that sway as if at sea, and the aviary where he housed poultry to keep him company in the arctic.

C-Ticket: Dance of the Clockwork Toys sends guests through the enchanted toy workshop of Gustav Tinkerschmidt, respected S.E.A. member, in model train dark ride vehicles, and it's also Disney’s testing grounds for free-standing animatronics, so when the workshop’s spell brings all the wind-up toy soldiers and ballerinas to life, they really seem to move around on their own.

E-Ticket: In Voyage Through the Unknown Pass, an original sci-fi pulp adventure, guests enter slot-car vehicles with their “expedition team” and journey up the arctic mountains, where they discover a passage to a hidden world of arctic dirigibles, whale graveyards, and bioluminescent dinosaurs thawing from glaciers.

E-Ticket: The Whimsical Adventures of the Mind
Based on the Disney-Pixar film Inside Out, journey into the vast environment of the mind in this dark-ride hybrid as you interact with Reily's emotions on a journey to rescue Bing Bong

C-Ticket: When You Wish Upon a Star
A Jiminy-Cricket narrated boat ride as you glide through the River of Dreams and get to decide your own future.

A-Ticket: Emotional Whirlwind
The Inside-Out themed spinner attraction from Disney California Adventure

The Fiendish Fjords
The home of Disney villains; when they're not going against our heroes; the Fiendish Fjords are the unused Shadowlands brought to its fullest potential and; much like Mermaid Lagoon, the area is built indoors to give the area a better dark, eerie atmosphere (the land is surrounded by tall mountains, with a pathway through a dead forest leading to the tunnel that serves the entrance and exit point) complete with a town (which much like Hogsmeade is also where the majority of stores, restaurants, entertainment, and interactive spots are) set between The Devious Docks and the Pitch Black Forest on the slopes Bald Mountain.
A-Ticket: The Jolly Roger is docked here at the Fjords and whilst here, guests can explore Captain Hook's infamous ship and see some of Hook's plans to off Peter Pan and the Neverland Boys (but mostly Peter) as well as tales of his dirty deeds and atrocious accomplishments; just don't look down into the water if you here a strange ticking noise.
C-Ticket: Yzma is always looking for unsuspecting victims who would make willing test subjects to experiment on and her newest invention; a topspin flat ride which she advertises as Yzma's Fear Farmer (Comes with Free Spinach Puffs at The End of Every Successful Test); is engineered to suck the fear out of its victims and into her new potion, which would be used to scare Kuzco into giving her the throne, but knowing her and Kronk, her plans are bound to be half successful.
E-Ticket: Nightmare on Bald Mountain is water coaster that takes guests on a journey up the slopes of Bald Mountain; via its cursed river; and "accidentally" into the Villains' Hideout where they plan to take control of the park and quickly chase out the unwanted intruders, sending defenses against them but just as they escape from the mountain fortress, Chernabog himself awakes and sends his demons to chase after you as you fall down 7 stories into the swampy waters below, only managing to evade them by the ringing of church bells.

Stumpedland didn't work out, so I came up with this instead.

MURKYWICH WHARF
32976169108_4904c924d4_b.jpg

The murky glimmer of the rickety lighthouse beckons you into Murkywich Wharf, the newest land at Tokyo Disneysea, a turn of the century, northeastern harbour town lost to time and an otherworldly presence, covered in an unsettling fog in the day or night, and while the fisherfolk are friendly enough, there is a shadow vexing their lives, particularly around the long lost founder Clyde Culpepper, the old lighthouse, and Superstition Mountain, which seems to bring the ghost stories and tall tales of the fishermen to life...

E-Ticket -- Superstition Mountain: Looming over the harbour is the obsidian hills of Superstition Mountain, a fast-paced, yet atmospheric ride that combines the best elements of a log flume and rapids, bringing the likes of Grizzly River Run and Pirates of the Caribbean together with a dash of Lovecraftian lore, where guests will find an entranceway to the mountain's raging river rapids where an ancient evil that breaches the realm of life and death dwells, and it is calling out to those who seek it.

C-Ticket -- Storm on the Briny Barnacle: Culpepper's old fishing vessel, the Briny Barnacle, lies where it was wrecked, but the remains have become a hodge podge of ghostly lifeboats, sliding and spinning back and forth and around the wreck, drawn through the ship's depths, which tell a tale in their own right in this Aquatopia-style whip ride.

A-Ticket -- Tales of the Seven Seas: Not everything is doom and gloom in Murkywich, as the Seahorse Actors Society gather guests to here their tales of comedy and adventure from across the seven seas, lead the rabble in a sea shanty or two, or may even shed some light on the strange goings on in the harbour town.

Cheating Note: The lighthouse would likely serve strictly as a land weenie, or be part of a spooky walkthrough. A major seafood restaurant would be set within Culpepper's renovated boathouse.

Interesting how we both pitched "snow-based" lands.

The Old Port

1598571974674.png


To complement the water of the park, an old port is added into the park themed after an abandoned Lumbar Yard port (similar to Montreal's Old Port pictured above) where guests can walk through a once-bustling town that now only has a few town folks left - holding on to that port magic once and for all.

Bonus 1 - A-Ticket: To complete the feel of the former Lumbar Yard port, guests can enjoy a streetmosphere log rolling show in the port where Castmembers can be seen competing in the ultimate log rolling competition a few times a day in the water; guests may get wet!

Bonus 2 - C-Ticket: Small log boats are put on an Aquatopia system (trackless water ride) so that guests can get the feel of being on the boat "fighting" the water.

Bonus 3 - E-Ticket: A new Log Flume is added where guests ride in hallowed out logs on open tracks themed to log driving (lumber workers pulling the logs from the yard to the port) complete with a large drop towards the lagoon, but not into the lagoon (like Splash Mountain).

Snow is the most magical form of precipitation (do they give out awards for that kind of thing?) I'd kill to swap out Orlando rain for Paris snow.
Having visited Disneyland Paris in the winter, and having ridden Big Thunder in the middle of a blazing snowstorm, I agree that it is magical and amazing and like nothing else! (P.S., Tokyo Disneyland during a typhoon is much less fun.)

LogoSunset.png


A fictionalized California-themed land to come to international parks, beautiful Sunset Harbour takes inspiration from the Bay Area and Los Angeles to create a diverse and inviting new land, featuring the following "sublands" -- Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Sunset (Hollywood) Hills, Walk of Stars, Paradise Pier (much smaller and obnoxious than its DCA iteration), and the Bridge -- each connected via vintage trolley around a large central bay.

BONUS 1 -- A TICKET: In Chinatown, the Chinese Museum shows the history of Chinese Immigration to California and the many struggles they encountered.

BONUS 2 -- C TICKET: Muppet Mania is a practical dark ride starring the Muppets as they take on Sunset Harbour in hopes of earning their spots on the Walk of Stars... join them as chaos ensues, as Miss Piggy and Gonzo each pull increasingly ridiculous stunts to gain popularity while Fozzie keeps making the same joke to different crowds to the same result and Kermit frets endlessly... but eventually, they earn their rightful star among Hollywood's Greats.

BONUS 3 -- E TICKET: Secrets of Sunset Harbour (informally referred to as "Secrets" in the same way POTC is called "Pirates") takes guests to the center of the bay, where an old, abandoned island not unlike Alcatraz is waiting; guests board old fishing boats (the ride system is capable of rocking back and forth to simulate choppy waters) at the Wharf and all seems well until the boats suddenly begin shaking uncontrollably, pulling us towards us the island... as we enter through the cave entrance we find the ruins of the old prison that was held on this island before it inexplicably shut down... as we spend more time through these flooded halls, it becomes apparent this is haunted by dark spirits, the former inmates of the prison, and they are leading us to something even stronger... we can see shadows, but the figure never shows, for the boat finally makes contact with land and its automatic control is swapped with remote may-day as we speed away... and then we realize why the inmates (who appear trapped against their will) could never escape, spirit sharks give chase around their jagged cliff lairs, but eventually, after a very intense chase, we are able to escape back to the mainland... still, there is something disturbing that this unseen dark spirit still lays, dormant over that abandoned island at the center of beautiful Sunset Harbour.​

I honestly I could've come up with something more than a revision of a scrapped concept.

THE SAILING SEAS
leon-tukker-theoceandone.jpg

(Credit to Leon Tucker on ArtStation for the concept art!!)
Added to help breathe in some more life into Hong Kong Disneyland and blend with the current themes of fantasy (Fantasyland and Mystic Manor) and exploration (Adventureland and Grizzly Gulch), The Sailing Seas takes place on a tropical island beach landscape with shipwrecks, washed up treasure, skeletons of bizarre creatures, and the likes scattered across the land as the beach is home to pirates, mermaids, creatures of the deep, with a small town residing on the edge of the water consisting of Mudéjar style architecture with restaurants primarily selling a wide variety of Oceanic foods such as Butterfly Pan Lobster and Meat Pies (Tasmania/Australia in this case).

BONUS E-TICKET ATTRACTION - Journey Into The Deep

A submarine expedition to find the source of the increasingly bizarre skeletal remains of a bunch of unidentified creatures has guests head down into the depths of the ocean in this motion simulator e-ticket as head down to the bottom of the sea, passing by large pockets of biodiversity at first, then coming across some docile yet bizarre beasts, and eventually having to evade the increasingly dangerous attacks of the creatures of the deep until said species is properly identified and the guests must escape in a high speed escape to the surface as the amount of monstrous sea creatures piles onto an unbearable amount.

Ludwig Von Drake's Symphonic Symposium

@DashHaber

An Innoventions style attraction with a musical theme and well integrated IP? Fantastic! You don't see Ludwig outside the lab often, its great seeing him in a different setting where he still fits in perfectly.

Shrine of the Sun
@b-wolf95

A great example of using an A-Ticket to increase the land rather than stand on its own. People won't be planning their day around this, but the entire land would be worse without it! Some excellent streetmosphere that may not "stand out" but it doesn't need to.

Research Camp Payground
@Brer Panther

Good theme park playgrounds are... in technical terms... super duper cool. Jurrasic Park, Dinoland, Grizzly Peak, Streets of America, Mission Space's exit area... lands with cool playgrounds are cool. And are a way to add theming in a unique way to an area (which you did with the abandoned research base!). Plus, this will be a great compliment to your thrill heavy E-Ticket.

Metroland Firehouse
@Imagineer Sroo

Basically everything I said about Brer Panther applies here too. There are some minor pros and cons in the contrast between the two. The urban setting makes it harder to conceal slides and theming compared to a more naturalistic environment so this will feel more like just a really cool playground. BUT not being as tied to a natural environment could give you the chance to have some bigger playground elements!​

Mean Streets

@DisneyManOne

Stunts in a streetmosphere setting is always a great idea! They can be tough to pull off because of the safety concerns involved, but act it out withing needed guidelines and this could be a standout show heping the land come alive!

Fairy Hollow
@Pufflefan

A great idea! Very similar to something already at Disnetland, but giving it a betterr execution blended more into the land would be great!

Cuckoo Manor Tours
@InspectorSpacetime

This sounds like a wonderful spiritual successor to Swiss Family Robinson. There's something so pleasing about wandering through a fake home of a fictional character that is equal parts grounded and fantastical.

Emotional Whirlwind
@spacemt354

A solid idea. Maybe pushing the definition of an A-Ticket having a decently well themed flat ride, but the lines between tickets are fuzzy. As a big fan of flats and Inside Out I would love this! Ya lose some points for it being a clone, but it fits here well.​
