    The costs do not think they are cheaper although they have already developed attraction in shanghai. The tour of the attraction will not only not be the same, but must be adapted to the public that visits MK in Disney World. I bet it will be a more aggressive and fast, as well as long.

    Ignoring that we've been told it's identical down to the outdoor dome? Don't get into Ford territory. Lol

    I really hope they go through with the speedway being converted into a Tron/general futuristic theme that's been hinted at. Since it's right next to the coaster I think that would fit really well. Leaving it as is would be a mess.

    Oh no! Those trees are what make the train ride! I easily spend 14 hours staring at them. I even took a pic of them on Monday. I guess I'll have to book a 64 day stay in the penthouse at GF so I can document each branch. Too bad there's no dining package!

    I'm assuming the wde railroad will have to close for construction given the placement. Would this mean enhancements to the rail road?

    Enhancements to the railroad would be a welcome addition right in time for the 50th.

    It would be nice if they cloned the Disneyland Railroad's Grand Canyon Diorama and The Primeval World with it's new upgrades... I mean, they are going to have some dinosaurs from the Energy pavilion just going into mothballs.... and let's face it, our Railroad need ALOT of set dressing... the theming is minimal at best... it should really feel like you are passing through each of the lands...not just some track embellishments in Frontierland and nothing else.

    Yes, if they bothered to preserve and move a Pooh tree, they can do this!

    I actually hope they don't do the Primeval World Diorama because it makes zero sense thematically.

    I caught a free one once at a convention. It's on the wall next to my Capt. America shield.

    What? Why is everyone laughing...?

    If it's not called the "End of Line" the whole project is a failure.

    It also ends in Chevy exhibits that we already have in Epcot, so that and the gift shop might be cut altogether. We have enough gift shops in Tomorrowland anyway.

    No, the exhibits and Gift shop are very disconnected (and Disney's attempt to make them connected has ruined crowd flow). I would be surprised if the shop didn't come, but if is does, it should be with a slightly different layout.

    That's some theming I could overlook. The Grand Canyon and Star Tours don't fit in their current lands either at Disneyland. As long as we would get something the caliber of the Grand Canyon and Primeval World, I would accept it.​
