Can you shed some light on what may have been?
Indiana Jones mini land where the animation building is, or an EMV style ride adjacent to the stunt show (but not a direct Anaheim clone). Temple of Peril was mentioned as a quick and easy add on too.

Later proposal was something Indy in DAK. The magnetic boats were mentioned for this.

Out of curiosity, why were they going to do an EMV style ride but NOT clone the DL one?

I mean, more originality is better, just seems like it would have been a weird choice for them.

Indy Boats for DHS never an option? The best case seemed to be an Indy expansion in DHS. Sounded like a real winner. Bummer. Hope they revisit it. Never liked the DAK connection; seemed like a reach. Was "Indy vs Dinosaurs" ever based on fact or just fan speculation?

It was a novel.

They could re-theme Star Tours to Indy Tours??

I was kinda thinking this would be the route they took if the scrapped doing the Indy layover of Dinoland. Makes fiscal sense. And I will say the latest iteration with Star Tours where you land in water, they've really done well on simulating the waves and such. I really think they could pull off a multi-themed simulator, to include some sort of flying scene with the Nazi's, the boat ride in India, or the mine cars.. They could have a 'greatest hits' kinda ride with exploring all the different chase scenarios that Indy's been in.

and... here's the kicker.... it'd be (b)millions cheaper than razing the area and building something entirely new. Now, put in some sort of coaster next door where the stunt show lives, coupled with a simulator ride.. You've got the default 2 ride mini-land that Disney thinks is the new norm....

Certain updates and differences would have distinguished it from the other 2 versions. They had a few new tricks to try.
If you don’t mind me asking, and if you’re not able to say no worries; essentially, don’t feel obligated to respond to all or any of my questions.

Would the Animation Building Mini Land have included a ride?

Would the Mini Land have included the reconfiguring or retheme of RRC?

Would the DAK boat ride have been an E?

You mentioned the DAK ride being a later proposal, so would that have been the most likely to come to fruition?

Where would the DAK Indy have been added?

What was the level of thought put into the lands? Blue sky, awaiting budget allocation, etc.

If it was a later stage of development what was the time table? Mid 2020s?

Unfortunately it is pretty evident that nothing is going to happen in the near future, but is the project something that could resurrect for the late 2020s given a strong economic recovery?

I must acknowledge my greed. Marni is a gift and I am asking much.
