Challenge 6 Tip - Think of this challenge like a Fantasyland challenge at Disneyland. There, there happen to be solid D-ticket dark rides interspersed with a C-ticket boat ride and some carnival-esque spinners. Fantasyland, even with this odd line-up, succeeds in entertaining due to it's broad array of attraction options.

Since the original Disneyland opened Pirates of the Caribbean in 1967, pirates have played a key part in every Disney Park around the world, whether it's variants of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride or Jack Sparrow running around the park.

Challenge 6: Some New Toys
Welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland! This week, contestants are challenged to replace the cheaply done Toy Story Land in the Chinese park. You are required to include multiple experiences, each attractive and fun, acting in a similar fashion as the current Toy Story line-up. The focus shouldn't be on one huge E-ticket, but on these separate D-tickets/C-tickets. You should also include a few merchandising options and food carts/counter service food locations (like Cheshire Cafe). Keep in mind the location of the land and make sure you integrate your theme well!

@@tcool is the holder of the immunity idol this week, as he was the winning Project Manager in Challenge 5.

This week, as usual, @@BryceM will be acting as an adviser along with@@Matt7187, like Trump's children and associates on the show.

Please provide at least 5 photos, but at most 15, in order to display your new land. You guys may communicate amongst your teams in this PM. I will watch over. Ask me any questions here. Due date is to be determined below. After you post your ideas please do not get into personal conflicts with the other team about concepts, or actions of punishment will take place.

Good Luck! :)

This week, team Land strived specifically to meet each of the requirements in the challenge:

We made sure that the focus was spread evenly among each of the rides, in a similar fashion to Fantasyland in Disneyland.

We integrated our theme throughout the land, in the rides, restaurant, and atmosphere.

We kept in mind the location of the land, by doing our best to preserve sight lines from other areas.

We included several merchandising options and food carts, as well as one restaurant.

Thank you for your consideration.

RMichael21's Short Critique of Team Sea-

Great Job Team Sea!

The Site- I felt that it seems tacky and sloppy, especially with the black background and white text. At first I found it confusing how there was only one page of text and how the map was at the bottom, there was no additional info. You should have put the area descriptions on the website. I had to keep clicking back and forth to "connect the dots." Also, you should have included a key for the map, I had no idea what red, orange and yellow represented and which skulls were for attraction, restaurants and shops. Also, the orientation of the map was odd, I know you were going for north, south, east and west, but it's like the new WDW maps, sometimes that makes it A LOT harder to read it. Finally, I found it pretty difficult at first to differentiate the paths and the buildings, you should have made the paths a different color.

The Attractions- I thought the balance of attractions was so-so. The POTC attraction was nice, but I feel like you ended at a high point in the other POTC attractions. The RC Racer redo was nice, but it felt a little "off" for some reason. I also found that your main focus was not on the smaller rides, but on the shops and diversions, leading to the attractions being somewhat lackluster.

The Shops- I felt that both shops were a little under-themed. That's all.

The Restaurants- YUM!!!! (Sorry, I don't have anymore time to critique :D)...
Nice review, but...you may want to move it to the discussion thread.

Great points!

The concept of a snow-y land is a nice one. However, there are some major issues with this. Disney Imagineering originally planned on building a polar land in the plot occupied by Toy Story Land, but Hong Kong officials blocked the project, since Ocean Park Hong Kong was already grand-opening a similarly themed area. Though, I do like your use of the theme and integration of the attractions. I really appreciate the way you went about utilizing carnival rides in an awesome way that doesn't break the theme. Some could have used a little more story as well. I should also mention I dislike the name "Winterland", as it isn't really/necessarily Winter in your land, as it is always snow-y in the depicted areas. "Winter" makes you expect Winter...the holidays, Frozen and all. Overall, though, very good job!

Love what you did here. The concept of taking the environments from a single ride (Pirates of the Caribbean), and expanding them was a magnificent one, and you did well adapting them. Just seeing the art for Santiago de la Vega (which, along with all the art, was great) instantly recalled the raiding of the Spanish town scene in the source ride. Your three rides fit well together, and none of them was really a full fledged E-ticket. However, I wish you had included some more "tacky-type" rides and made them amazing. I also thoroughly enjoyed your other experiences (shows, streetmosphere, etc.) and restaurants, but I did make a point that all food should be counter service. Overall, though, I'm very happy with your work this week.

Question! because of working hour of both Englanddg and myself (among possible school hours) could we move the due Time back to 9Pm. I know this is a 24 hour deal, but this would work better for everyone's schedule.
