A Beauty and the Beast dark ride makes perfect sense for the MK and the space is also there so that makes sense as well. The problem that stands in the way and what seems to happen quite often with Disney Execs. is what makes sense usually never comes to be. I hope I am wrong as I would love to see this happen.
I agree 100%. Welcome to the Disney boards! :)

The New Fantasyland fell way short and maybe that is because they went over budget on other projects and just ran out of budgeted money for what could have been something really spectacular in the New Fantasyland. What seems to happen is Disney comes up with a really great idea like this one and runs with it or awhile getting it half done and then another huge idea springs up and they go and run with that abandoning or letting the other idea fall short. I truly think that is what happened with the New Fantasyland idea. The good thing is there is still space and great ideas to add to it if they ever do so.

I often wondered whether a beauty and the beast ride would come to Florida seeing what's being done over in Tokyo. I didn't know whether (if it did come) if it was possible to go on a new piece of land or whether it would have to take up the current Beauty footprint and replace the Restaurant/Meet&Greet.

I think it would be an absolute travesty if a dark ride based on this animation didn't come to the park. I know the little mermaid started up the resurgence but i think Disney have Beauty & The Beast to really thank for bringing back their popularity.

If we had the choice of the restaurant/meet and greet or the ride, I'm choosing the ride. I would have no problem with Disney demolishing both.

True. I wonder if they have empty land in Fantasyland to build the ride. @marni1971 does Disney have land to build the ride at Magic Kingdom?
Outside of the berm opposite Starland was an expansion pad. Given it’s changed a bit since then thats unlikely. Anything north of the current park was not part of the original or planned expansion area. Of course anything is possible (almost) but it depends how much money and disruption they would be willing to factor in.

I still favour removing the tents.

Thanks for the reply Marni! :) I hope we could see the ride show up in the park.
 
With all that has taken place with the shutdown of all the Disney Parks worldwide, I highly doubt a new concept as good as it may seem will come to be any time in the near future.They have enough unfinished business to take care of first and then maybe years down the road this idea might fall into place. Unfortunately right now is not the time.

Yeah budgets are going to be cut and projects will probably be delayed or canceled.
