Rumor Possible Attraction in UK Pavilion

Advertisement
I think it's possible pretty much settled. But I'm not giving the game away on this one, sorry. Mickey has big ears and all that.

Suffice to say it has been mentioned already.
Sounds like the choice of IP should be relatively surprising - there hasn't been a clear leader from synergy's perspective outside of Poppins, what with her forthcoming movie. If it's not that, then it seems they're reaching at least a short distance into the vault towards a property whose film is already released.

Ok so now that @marni1971 has pretty much confirmed Disney has made a decision on IP/attraction. Let us recap what we have mentioned in this thread as Martin also said it was something we mentioned.

Brief Attraction Recap
It could have been a D. Now it's looking more likely to be a B.

But it's still not finalised from what I know.
Attraction wise what we know so far is that it will range from B/C/D. But most likely a B

Also that the attraction is:
It is not a carousel or Ferris wheel
Dark ride was one of the proposals, not looking likely now
Not a boat or a roller coaster

No carousel no London Eye.

Plus the gondolas will draw your eye anyway.
IP Recap
We named a ton of different IP’s so forgive me if I missed any as I was skimming this entire thread. But here is a list of what we all have been discussing.
Have been denied by insiders:
Mr. Toad
Dr. Who
James Bond
Mary Poppins

Not denied and are possible: In no particular order

Loch Ness Monster
Robin Hood
Alice in Wonderland
Sword in the Stone
101 Dalmatians
Peter Pan
Winnie the Pooh
Brave
Narnia
Mickey and the Beanstalk
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
The BFG

As of recently Marni stated Mary Poppins is not a front runner
As of last week Poppins was not the front runner.
Here is a list of my opinions for top contenders:
  1. Alice in Wonderland
  2. Brave
  3. The Sword in the Stone
  4. Robin Hood
  5. 101 Dalmatians
  6. Peter Pan
I know there are definitely some I missed. But IMO I can't see anything else under consideration other than what has been mentioned above.

Edit: To include Mary Poppins which has now been denied by @WDW1974

Speaking from personal preference, I hope that it's not Brave. The animators deserved the Oscar for the animation of Merida's hair alone, but the movie itself could have been so much better-especially if you look into its rocky production history.

If Poppins is out, and it looks like it is, I'd be happy with Alice-the Disneyland ride is charming, at least from the videos I've seen.

What'd be really fun is if they went with an unlikely IP-Robin Hood, Sword in the Stone, 101 Dalmatians, etc. And I'm one of those select few that feel like Black Cauldron is an under-appreciated film-and would love an attraction based on that, but I also know Disney is more likely to release Song of the South on blu ray than they are to build a dark ride featuring the Horned King. It wouldn't fit the UK theme, anyway.


Here's hoping we get some actual information soon, though this back and forth isn't entirely unpleasant.

They've already kind of road tested a Brave attraction.....

Back in 2012 they had the mini Highland games running at Epcot to promote the movie. Now they could actually just adapt that a bit, move Merida from the MK and there you have it for little outlay. Granted it's not a ride though, so my next question for @marni1971 is this: "can you confirm if this is an actual ride?". Appreciating that he may not be able to answer. ;)

I should add I really hope this is a ride, and not some cheap attraction. And actually the argument against this idea is the completion date, as this would take a few months at most to install, and I'm positive our insiders have said after Rat.

Yep, it's after Rat now.

Currently it is a new ride.

I assume we're still talking a warehouse'd wonder and not a tall structure. Being a B-ticket or lowly-C limits things.

What is your definition of "new" is this context? As in a new addition to the park, new as in brand new and not refurbished/reused or repurposed, or is it simply a new ride concept or new ride type?

New to the park and I believe to parks. I doubt it'll be a new concept or unseen ride system.
