Team Omega - The Disney Dreamer Park: Disneyland, CA

Prologue
Disneyland since its inception in 1955 has been the happiest place on earth and continues to evolve from Walt Disney's original dreams decades ago. Flash forward to 1995, and theme parks all over the world have attempted to embody the spirit of Disneyland, yet none can quite embrace the charm of the original. And in the minds of Walt Disney Imagineering in the mid-90s, as Michael Eisner is imploring the company to expand their Southern
California Resort, hesitation arises on budgetary concerns after the financial failure of Euro Disneyland.

With the template of a western EPCOT Center, or WestCOT, as it was called, plans for that began to balloon and skyrocket to the $3-4 Billion range, and the local Anaheim residents complained regarding the light pollution and gaudy structures a WestCOT would bring with it into their neighborhood. In particular the 300 foot tall Spacestation Earth, that would loom over all the Disneyland Resort and residential areas.

More than any other Disney resort, Disneyland is boxed in not only in terms of space, but also residential approval. Much like the great Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI, or Fenway Park in Boston, MA, the attraction and surrounding residents play a role in every decision made.

Thus Eisner, seeing his WestCOT scrapped, his Disney's America park scrapped, and reeling from the losses of Euro Disneyland, put in charge two imagineers that he trusted, MonorailRed and spacemt354, to lead the creative department in early June 1995, to come up with a vision and dream for Disneyland's 2nd theme park, which they titled, The Disney Dreamer Park.


Backstory

The Disney Dreamer Park would tie in with the story of Disneyland. Since it has been established through time that no theme park could match Disneyland's charm, the mindset was...why try to go the exact opposite direction with WestCOT or some modern California park, why not make the park a prequel of sorts to Disneyland. The first thoughts that crossed everyone's mind - what was Walt's vision for Disneyland, but the other question not yet explored, what life experiences got him to that moment where he created Disneyland? Rural Missouri, camping and hiking the Missouri Caverns, his journey out west to Hollywood and the invention of Mickey Mouse, delving into animation and film, and once Disneyland was complete, his vision for the future - an E.P.C.O.T.

The Disney Dreamer Park served as a preamble to Disneyland, as well as a home for those inspired by Walt Disney who have led Disneyland and the Walt Disney Company as a whole, beyond his touch and into the 21st Century.

This idea sparked the imagination and plans were designed to fully encompass the entire resort complex as one. Adding new greenery, walking paths, and accessibility, while also blending it into the surrounding area with more naturalistic and hospitable attractions that would be more cost effective and less ostentatious than a WestCOT.

The tallest peak of the park would be 125 feet, even smaller than the Matterhorn, and in addition to The Disney Dreamer Park, the resort would add Disney's Progress City Resort & Spa (which the Disneyland Monorail would pass through its main lobby atrium), an expansion to the Disneyland Hotel, the Paradise Pier Hotel, the Disney Plaza duel entrance, and the Disney Commons Shopping Center.

Land Overviews

Gardens of Innovation
The entrance to the park is inspired by a Missouri forest near Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, MO, providing a more authentic transition from the Main Street Station in Disneyland towards the entrance of The Disney Dreamer Park. The name itself, Disney Dreamer 'Park' is intentionally named to designate a 'park' Too many times new additions to Disney Resorts become concrete jungles, especially in Disneyland in order to fit as much in the small real-estate as possible. However, having a park-like setting dates back to Griffith Park, and Walt's childhood home, and his love of the outdoors and nature. This naturalistic entrance and causeway in-between the parks allows that story to be told.

Progress City
Walt Disney's Vision of the Future - this model city dared to dream the perfect community in which to work, live, and play. From the farms of Missouri to the community of tomorrow, guests walk through the Perfect Park Acres green topiary tunnel that transitions you in time to Progress City. As you walk through the passageway you gaze up at the 140 tall spire of the Progress City Resort & Spa, the Disneyland Monorail gliding towards it on your periphery, and a beautiful utopia in front of you to explore.

Meadows Square
Based on the district of Queens, New York known as Flushing Meadows Park, home of the 1964/1965 New York World's Fair, this section chronicles life after Disneyland. For guests traveling from the Mosaic Mountain, and through towards the green pastures of Meadows Square, the distinct time jump can be seen through the mountain as guests on the walls of the interior of the mountain are shown depictions of Walt Disney giving his speech at Disneyland on opening day, and now progressing towards the future and his bold ideas of Progressland USA and Progress City (E.P.C.O.T). Meadows Square combines the ingenuity of the World's Fair, along with the New York City Broadway Style productions of Walt Disney influenced musicals at the Walt Disney Family Theater in the center of the land. Meadows Square also provides a secondary entrance for guests coming from the Disneyland Resort Area on the west side of the campus.

Inspired by Walt's passion for adventure and exploration, the Animation Renaissance land is a tribute to some of Walt's classic animation films such as The Jungle Book, as well as the legacy that has been passed on to the animators of the present and future that have continued good storytelling and spark the imagination. Within the Animation Renaissance on opening day is the land's signature attraction based on the smash hit 1994 film, The Lion King. In addition, a family friendly swinging coaster, Two Worlds, is a dueling coaster themed around the 1999 film, Tarzan. Classic Walt Disney films such as The Jungle Book and the Three Caballeros are also on display throughout.

When Walt Disney had a dream, he left his childhood home and ventured out west to Los Angeles. No guarantee of success, Walt embodied the American Dream of achieving your goals through self-confidence and awareness, ultimately leading to the Disney company we know today. But that all starting on the bustling streets of Hollywood in the early decades of the 1900s. Walk the streets that Walt did as trolleys pass you by, Art deco designs permeate the street corners, theaters display some of Disney's classic films, and fanciful hotels just might have a dark side to them.

1 - The Tree of Dreams
The icon for the Disney Dreamer Park is Walt's Tree of Dreams. Standing 65 feet tall at the entrance to the park, guests will be guided in by a naturalistic tree inspired by a tree that Walt had in his backyard of Missouri. As you gaze across the new Disney Plaza, at the Main Street Station inspired by Marceline, this provides a seamless transition between Walt's hometown and between the two parks, connecting them together as one.

953cf50a-3709-4fad-9706-916fc9bc628f


Once guests tunnel through the forested entrance to the park, they are immersed in the tranquil setting as nature sounds embellish the area in a serene environment. Pine and other tree scents can be found throughout, further transporting the guests to a forest of Marceline and the 'birthplace of dreams' - the outskirts of Walt's hometown of Marceline. It is here that Walt traveled and trekked with a childlike imagination, and now guests get to experience that type of child-like awe, as the trees are designed to be seen from a child's perspective, raised slightly taller than a typical maple or oak tree would be. This is because the pathway throughout the forest entrance is approximately 12-24 inches in some cases below the forest surroundings, designed specifically to emit the feeling of all-encompassing nature.

2 - Mosaic Mountain
As guests walk through the arboretum styled entrance of beauty and serenity, coming into view ahead of them is Moasic Mountain, a sprawling vista of imagination. Inspired by the artwork and design style of Mary Blair, the famous Disney artist and animator, the realism of the forest seamlessly blends into what appears to be the backdrop to one of Disney's classic animated films of Alice in Wonderland or Peter Pan. As one of the icons of the entire park along with the Tree of Dreams, Moasic Mountain serves as a reminder of the progression of Walt's visions, from the real forest to an animated one in his classic animated films.
Screenshot%2B%2528160%2529.png

It also serves to be a visionary symbol of the Walt Disney animation style, and a signature perspective of Mary Blair that aggrandized these classic films to their venereal peak today as works of art. Standing 97 feet tall, the Mountain is more like a large hill, allowing the skyline of Anaheim and Disneyland Resort to remain roughly the same, however added an animated naturalistic flair to it. Now as you ride the Matterhorn along its tallest peaks, you can gaze out at Mosaic Mountain before spiraling down and seeing the Mary Blair inspired facades of Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Tea Part, and it's a small world, surrounding the Matterhorn itself.

3 - Walt's Barn
After glancing at Mosaic Mountain, guests have the option of continuing towards the 'weenie' of the land, or taking a short detour and 'long route' around the park through the farm. On it, Walt's childhood barn is decked out on display for guests to walk-through. Inside is historical context for Walt Disney and his affection for animals and nature. Family photos courtesy of the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco and the Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, provided replicas and other memorabilia items for the guests of Disney Dreamers Park to see.

4 - Horseback Rides
When Walt first envisioned Disneyland, in particular for attractions such as the Jungle Cruise, he wanted live animals in the park. And several of the early renditions of Disneyland featured horseback rides, which eventually evolved into the horse-drawn carriages on Main Street U.S.A. At the Disney Dreamers Park, horseback rides have become a signature attraction and experience of the park, as 15 noble horses are available on a patch of 1.5 acres of land in the park for rides. Guests sit through safety instructions and are allowed to ride under parental supervision for children in all cases. An additional horse maintenance facility and animal hospital is build beyond the Disneyland monorail track with a fully staffed veterinarian and surgeon staff on hand.
*Behind the Scenes Tours are available of the farm and horse facilities on select days.

With the glistening monorail overhead, you walk into what on the exterior appears to be a futuristic aeronautical laboratory. As you continue inside, guests meander hallways of famous explorers and innovators dating all the way back to ancient times as transportation, communication, and all sorts of human advancement were taking shape. Historians of the Walt Disney theme park community would notice subtle nods to scenes from World of Motion, such as the flying wings invention of Da Vinci, as well as other historic tie ins to show the progress of human ingenuity.

And that is what's at the heart of Flight to the Future. With a name inspired by the classic Magic Kingdom attraction, Flight to the Moon, guests will board a new technology for the age, based on an erector set, which takes guests to a large 5 story tall IMAX screen which displays scenes with motion based simulations on the set attached with the motion on screen, creating a mesmerizing visual effect for the guest.

On this 5-minute synchronized adventure through human ingenuity, you begin with the big bang, as cosmic stars and solar systems are formed rotating your vehicles around and blasting you back to the creation of the earth. Gavin Greenaway provides the music overture to the attraction after his success with the Tapestry of Nations and Reflections of Earth at Epcot at the turn of the century.

As guests delve into earth's history, we see modern civilization form with our very eyes on the large projection screen. The journey encapsulates the message that as humanity continues on through time, now is the time to seize the future. Now is the time to create a better tomorrow, as our ancestors have done for us in the past. The adventure continues on as guests dive deep beneath the surface of the skin to travel through the bloodstream to a beating heart and then up to the brain itself, as we have understood the world around us, we now need to look within, and to the stars, as the screen pans out to reveal the solar system that began the journey, with a look back down at the bright blue earth as it becomes smaller and smaller, suffocated by the weight of the unknown universe we have left to explore.

6 - Uncle Orville Invention Shoppe
Oh good ol' Uncle Orville, always coming up with a new invention here or there. Within Progress City to gather his own privacy, Orville set up his shop for tinkering with new inventions he comes up with, (Orville being a reference to one of the family characters in Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress). The father John though sees a business opportunity and now Orville can't get any privacy at all with his shoppe either, as guests pour in to see his inventions and what he has in store for tomorrow.

7 - Prototype Pastries

This quaint pastry shop is home to one of the most coveted dessert items in all of the Disney Dreamer Park. Akin to the Dole Whip being a quintessential part of Adventureland, or a Turkey Leg being synonymous with Disney parks, the next 'item' on that list is "The Big Dipper Dippin' Dot" presented by Dippin' Dots. Known as the 'ice cream of the future' the Dippin Dot will be the signature dessert item of not only Progress City but potentially of the resort as a whole.

8 - TimTim 4000's MilkyWay Cafe
In the city of the future there are friendly robots and other artificial intelligence beings that help humanity with their daily lives. One of the more rambunctious robots of the bunch is the TimTim 4000 a prototype that can sense human emotions, though in his processing, his system emotions glitched for an increased humor setting. Now TimTim can't get through a day without making people laugh at his MilkyWay Cafe, which offers a unique display of quick service offerings along with live entertainment from TimTim himself as he performs stand-up comedy at his Cafe on the hour every day for 20 minute shows. This interactive experience will sure to be a highlight of any family's day at the Disney Dreamer Park

16 - The Lion King: Journey to Pride Rock
FP Available
Sprawling in the distance of the land, Pride Rock stands 97 feet in the air and towers over the rest of the pridelands. As you approach the jungles surrounding the massive structure, you meander through waterfalls and plant-life before meeting Timon and Pumbaa in animatronic form in the queue. They tell you that Simba has gone missing and they don't know where he went. Your mission is to go and find Simba because Scar has taken over as King of Pride Rock after Mufasa's death. After a short pre-show you board a log flume and go off on this adventure.


The outdoor loading area underneath the waterfall then flows inside a massive 3 story show building where the rest of the attraction takes place. The first scene depicts Scar plotting what to do as King of Pride Rock and the song "Be Prepared" plays to an ominous surrounding atmosphere. This flow then transitions to Simba running through the glass fields and being knocked on the head by Rafiki. Nighttime falls as the stars around your boat begin to move and flow as an animatronic Simba appears in front of you, looking up at a formation of his father. The breathtaking composition of This Land plays as Mufasa tells him to remember who he is and that he needs to return to Pride Rock. As the scene transitions Timon and Pumbaa meet up to cheer him up before trekking back to Simba's home.

As Simba returns home, Pride Rock has been famished and starved of food, with the lionesses plotting to turn on Scar, as your logs even seem as if they are floating on dried up water sources and come to a hault. It's at this time where your logs are on a moving belt that bring you up to the top peak of the show building on the third floor. As you ride up, Simba and Scar battle with Simba ultimately coming out the victor. As you approach the top you dive down a quick drop and into darkness as Scar is defeated. The darkness is then halted by the sound of chanting and African tribal music. The Circle of Life begins to play and renewed life is brought to the kingdom. Everyone surrounds Simba as he takes his place as King. This mesmerizing scene alone contains 120 different motion based figures and 55 audio-animatronics to provide one of the most climactic endings to any Disney attraction in history.

Riverfront Valley
Designed with Walt Disney's concept of Riverfront Square in mind, the never build theme park for St. Louis, MO, this section of the park is designed as a transition from the Gardens of Innovation as well as the outdoor themes of the Animation Renaissance. Embracing the American prairie and Appalachian forest themes, Riverfront Valley is home to classic tall tales and American historical significance.

25 - The Great Prince of the Forest
The Great Prince of the Forest is a dark ride themed to Walt Disney's 1942 classic Bambi. Inspired by the concept sketches of the (now late-great), Tyrus Wong, this dark ride will be unique from others due to its scarce reliance on dialogue, with an emphasis on music and an impressionist art driven narrative.


The scenes flow together in a rhythmic harmony that illustrate Bambi's maturation from a young fawn to the leader of the forest, told through several makeshift vignettes of the forest seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and back to Spring.

Guests begin their experience by winding through a series of switchbacks, where birds and other woodland creatures can be heard chirping and humming along with the spring sunshine. Lining the queue are impressionist forest paintings throughout the switchbacks, that quite literally, 'paint' the picture of where you are heading in the attraction.

As you approach the load area, a large nest approaches as your ride vehicles, symbolizing not only a connection with nature, but also an underlying reference to an attachment towards motherly figures, as being in a birds nest is an allusion to Bambi's close relationship with his mother. As the nest glides off into the forest, we hear morning birds and a crisp spring/summer breeze before us as we turn the corner to see Bambi with his mother, as well as Thumper, Flower, and Faline in the distance calling for Bambi to play with them.

The jovial and upbeat background music gives the guests a calming sense of serenity throughout the forest, as the nest glides through the trees, and we see Bambi playing along, his mother watching proudly, and looming in the distance, The Great Prince of the Forest, watching and protecting the forest from 'Man'.

As we transition into the next season, the leaves have turned and we see some of the woodland creatures preparing for hibernation, Bambi and his mother prance along as the fall season transitions into snow for the next scene. We then hear a gunshot as Bambi's echoing call for mother can be heard throughout the snow covered trees. A shadowing figure, The Great Prince, appears in the distance to tell Bambi, "come son, your mother can't be with you anymore" For an added emotional effect - after the line of dialogue is spoken, the scene flows into complete silence as the background music fades, and you watch Bambi slowly stride off with the shadowy figure in the distance and the scene continues to black amidst the silence.
1515461992379-png.255265

The blackness of the tunnel acts as a time jump as we now see Bambi as a young stag the following winter, courting Faline as more gunshots are heard in the distance through the forest and the trees begin to turn orange and red. Sensing danger, your nest begins to franctically swerve back and forth through the tattered remains of the forest. This is the first installation of what will be known as the 'Rome Burning' smellitzer coming to Spaceship Earth in 1982, as the room's aroma places you in a burning forest with the pumped in smell of burning wood. Bambi is seen taking charge, making sure everyone from his family and friends is safe, leading away the hunter's dogs as more gunfire shoots off in the background of this dramatically intense scene. As the smoke clears and fire settles, Spring emerges with the forest critters gathering for a grand reveal. The nest turns to see Bambi as The Great Prince of the Forest, with 'Love is a Song' playing in the background. As you turn towards the unload area, you see Bambi standing on a rock formation high above his forest, and Faline with newborn twins, as Bambi has grown into his true destiny.

Standing 125 feet above the park, the towering facade of the Hollywood Hotel drops guests off in the heart of the story. A sister attraction to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, this attraction doesn't take place after the story, it takes place during the story. You are a guest of the swanky new Hollwood Tower Hotel, and you board classy elevator to the Tip Top Club. However on your journey you are met with some mysterious beings from the 5th dimension, and become trapped in the dimension known as the Twilight Zone.

Featuring a random drop sequence, which is an improvement over the original in Disney-MGM Studios at the time, this attraction takes guests through 6 variations of drop sequences so that you never experience the same attraction twice.

2017-12-12.png

The Hollywood Tower Hotel, when opened in 1913, was only open a few years before Prohibition swept across the nation, causing the Tip Top Club to temporarily not serve alcoholic drinks. The show business elite, disgruntled with the hotel's policy, secretly transformed the hotel's auxillary greenhouse shed, as a hideaway for their illegal beverages. When Prohibition was lifted in 1933, the shed was then built into the Midnight Lounge meant for separate private parties and could arguably be even more exclusive than the Tip Top Club. When lightning struck the Tower on Halloween 1939, the Midnight Lounge along with all other aspects of the hotel, were left as they were, as guests ran for their lives away from the haunted hotel.

Legend says that many of the patron spirits of the former Midnight Lounge still reside in and around the hotel boundaries. Enter this mahogany crafted 1930s Hollywood bar setting...if you dare, and splurge on a variety of beers, wines, cocktails, and assorted beverages and quick service menu items, all themed around the Tower of Terror. It will be a 'fright' night you'll never forget.
