The park needs people eating dark rides. I know we all want a flashy E-ticket but I don't think TRON coaster is the answer.
I would take dark rides over an E-ticket. Again, I think it goes back to atmosphere and the experience. I wish more people in management thought that way. When I think of Disney, I think dark rides.

Same.

I'd prefer an Aladdin dark ride in Adventureland, a Tangled or Alice in Wonderland dark ride in Fantasyland, something to replace Buzz with that doesn't involve gutting it ... or why not rebuild Pan somewhere and give it a bigger showbuilding, better scenes and better capacity? So many things they could do but instead they want to gut and replace.

But they clearly want quick fixes and flashy e-tickets with horrid capacity.

You would think dark rides would be mod of a quick fix. I have a hard time believing they cost more and take longer than roller coasters and E-tickets.

I like the other rumor better, the one where Tron is coming to Tomorrowland but NOT in the form of a coaster. Tron seems more likely now but I'm still holding out the tiniest of hopes that whatever is added will not be another coaster. That makes 4 in close"ish" proximity. While they are good people eaters I would think Disney would want to spread out the coasters and balance foot traffic in each land. I'd much rather see a few C-D tickets and an enclosed theater vs a single E.

Roller coasters are generally fairly cheap before you get into extensive themeing.

People keep mentioning Tron, but, I think they are all going to be highly disappointed. As has many have noted, the balance of MK is way off and the need for large volume rides is high. They are not going to plop down some huge monstrosity of a building right next to Space Mountain and diminish the theme. If anything, the E ticket ride so many want is likely (IMO) to be in Adventureland to balance out the park while tomorrowland gets a major refurb with more people eating attractions. The Speedway gets a refurb, even as much as Id be ok with it being gone, and TL is cleaned up. There are plenty of options for an Eride that would fit the adventureland theme and still be able to bring good attractions to TL and make it work.

I agree I'd rather see a big people eating dark ride or two in TL on the speedway area rather than tron right next to space mountain. Then put a big e ticket over in adventureland

Please no Tron coaster! It looks cool, but I don't think it would fit in WDW's Tomorrowland.
First, you have an indoor coaster next door. That seems a little redundant.
Second, the ride doesn't seem that great. It is a short coaster, with some cool effects, but nothing really groundbreaking. Give me a Wall-E (or any) dark ride over this any day.

Now if TDO wanted to improve the Tron coaster, by adding a second Red track that intertwined with the blue track, I may change my tune. MK needs a new E-ticket for the 50th, I just hope it is not the Shanghai version of the Tron ride. Even if we get a coaster if would be nice to be something different, like a suspended rollercoaster instead of Tron.

Maybe Electric cars? (CARS Themed) - put a Mickey Head solar farm nearby, Get "Sponsor" Batteries and "Sponsor" cars. Win / Win sponsors can test their batteries / DC engines since these things will be beaten up... Children today will be either driving electric cars or not driving at all :rolleyes: or we leave it like it is and in 20 yrs kids will be saying "Wait a minute, you're telling me these things run on liquid fuel?"
