Didnt the FEA remodel cost upwards of 120 million and they were starting with an existing attraction already in place? I know they added a section of track, a facade remodel and a new Queue...but it was not a Ground Up construction project like this would be... So I am noot expecting much...though it is probably more than it cost to build Future World back in the late 70s...lol
I thought FEA was closer to 75

It's possible it was more expensive to remodel Maelstrom into FEA than it would have been to build FEA from scratch. That's probably not the case since they were able to use the same ride system etc. but it's not unusual for a full remodel of an existing structure to cost more than starting from scratch.

I agree it usually is...and FEA was elaborate with their use of animatronics and special effects...Not sure they could do a new build of FEA for 80 million though...I think it would be well over the hundred mark based on their recent attraction costs...
Mary Poppins attraction would have to include a meet and greet, new buildings and new facades, none of will will be inexpensive... I am hopping it will be more than just a standard carousel with Mary themed decor and a meet and greet though...

I thought Mermaid was around $100 million...
Maybe including all the rock work and the meet and greet. At that point though you have to question if it’s worth it, imagine a 100 million Mermaid attraction but the facade is as basic as it’s a small world in Florida. So spending all 100 million on the actual attraction!

Sooo.... why Emily Blunt? I feel like that's going to upset a lot of guests and I'm not really thrilled with that choice either.


Having said that, I did change my mind about Runaway Railway and its animation style. So I definitely could be persuaded.

Honestly not a bad idea, especially since it would fit with the upside down scene from MPR. It won’t be the case though as mad house’s don’t have the capacity Disney needs. They’d have to have like 5 different tilt rooms
EPCOT doesn’t need any more mediocre attractions with upside down scenes. Especially attractions that COULD be (or have been) great with a little more effort...

Its not a "scene". The whole room tulles around while the chairs swing giving the illusion you are flipping around.

This is Villa Volta in the Efteling. It has a little bit of a dark story but you could make it fit more with mary poppins. Maybe make it a bigger version or with multiple rooms. I Think it is atleast better then a carrousel.

While capacity would be a huge issue, I did think a Mad House could be a great idea for a Disney attraction (or Universal). Now, whether it fits its location depends on use...
