I haven't been to Disney Land in a few years, the last one I visited was Disneyland Tokyo. The two rides there that stood out to me where Space Mountain, because instead of being a strap in roller coaster like in Paris, it was a fast, very dark, mine cart ride. The other was the Monster Inc. It' was the same as the Buzz Lightyear ride in Paris, shooting the bad guys which was pretty fun.

I really want to visit the parks in America, especially the ones in Florida, but Florida is far too expensive to get to and stay. Next time I go to PMC, I'm gonna head to Disney Land there and see what it's like. I like the Paris park more than Tokyo's. Tokyo had to force everything into a small area and Paris also had Disney Studios which is pretty cool.

Dick Cook says that Marvel will honor the theme park arrangements it's made with rivals. I guess as long as Universal continues to pay Marvel's licensing fee and occasionally update the Marvel-themed attractions, the rights will remain in perpetuity to Universal Orlando Resort.

But that won't stop Disney from putting in a Marvel-themed attraction in Disneyland

Not to mention Universal just did some major revamping/updating of The Amazing Adventures of Spider-man. If the area was going any time soon, they wouldn't have even bothered.

Looking forward to riding The Great Movie Ride at MGM Studios (Yes, I know it's now called Hollywood Studios).
Dude I've always called it MGM Studios too! but next time I go I might try and adjust to the name change. I read up on the History of the Disney-MGM relations regarding the park and it's really messy, with lawsuits being thrown here and there by both companies over the name rights and etc. The original purpose of that park was to celebrate the golden age of Films in the 30s, 40s and 50s and serve as a working movie studio itself. I know some of the Animated flicks were done there later on, like Mulan. At the time, MGM was the king and was directly linked to many of those classic golden age movies, so it made sense to partner with them.

Disney entered into agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to use the name for that initial purpose in 1985. At that point, Disney wouldn't kick start it's animation (and in my opinion, popularity) renascence until 1989 when The Little Mermaid hit theaters. Nowadays however, Disney seems to be the king of the film industry (Though I haven't looked into box office returns for all the Big time companies, so don't quote me on that) They freaking own Marvel and Star Wars, just those two would be enough to fill up a park, let alone all their other properties.

Naming the park the Disney Hollywood Studios does make sense now that there are so many attractions and events based on more up to date Films/TV that they can use.

I will say though, I'll always recognize the Earful Tower as the park symbol, not the Sorcerer hat.

I always thought Power Rangers would be a good candidate for taking over the Waterworld show at Universal Hollywood. The old cowboy stunt show space is going unused as well.

But that Waterworld show is awesome, I don't know why they would change it. I saw it last August. That park would easily be able to host a small Power Ranger show or something, but there isn't any reason for it. They have some awesome stuff in that park from big name films and shows. I don't think the Rangers are popular enough to warrant it.

It also doesn't help that the hat blocked out the view of The Great Movie Ride. For someone who has seen the Chinese theater in L.A., the replica is as close as you can get to the real thing, outside at least. To block it out is a real shame.

And I hate that they got rid of Sounds Dangerous. Sure, it wasn't the most exciting thing there, but I thought it was fun. And it had Drew Carey, filmed back when he was a pretty decent star.

And don't get me started on the Sci-Fi Cafe.

It would've been a nice slap in the face at Disney after Saban bought the franchise back and took the attraction to its competitor. As for storage, Universal could easily house the outfits and car in their Studios backlot. Doesn't take as much space like the Simpsons and Minions outfits.
Why slap them in the face though?

The attractions don't work like that, by the way. You don't just show up and say "here, put this in your park". Universal couldn't easily house the outfits and car in their backlot, it is a finite space, they'd have to find room for it and then Saban would have to pay for it. Why store it if you're not going to use it? Why would Universal use it if it wasn't going to bring in money like their other attractions?

Universal FL. is getting the Transformers "ride" too.


As much as I enjoy the exploits of the Cybertronians, I'm gonna pass.

Those moving room rides are terrible.

Damn. I was kind of hoping Universal would try to get DC to offer up a deal.

I think the Six Flags parks have already got that covered, what with Warner Bros being a major part of it.

So then, now that California Adventure's big expansion is pretty much finished, how successful do you think it was?

I sadly haven't been to CA in awhile, and the only parts of the expansion that I was able to experience was Toy Story: Midway Mania and World of Color. Midway was pretty fun when I went through it, and while I enjoy World of Color (and the subsequent updates they make depending on the Disney and/or Pixar film that is coming out that year), I'm a bit disappointed that there was no actual storyline that the show depicts.
I was a bit let down by California Adventure. As much as I love the new early California theme throughout the park, it still suffers the same issue, not enough major attractions. Not for a lack of trying though, they have filled the space the park occupies, but I could go for more park and less Downtown Disney. That is one reason I prefer Disneyland Park. DD is great for the resort aspect but I think really hurts CA but it does make sense as most of the people that go there are probably on vacation and not local like me.

It's kind of sad that I have an annual pass to Disneyland and could go every day if I wanted, though try to go once a week or so (depending on how tired I am from work that week), that I don't know a lot about it. Wow. I have noticed some things but it's interesting that they are replacing that Snow White ride and making a different one. Good that I have gone to that ride, even though in parts, it creeps me out. Hehe. Mostly when you see the queen as the old lady.

Blue Shadow, those two rides you describe that are your favs, they sound like the ones in the Disneyland here in California. :]

But hearing about the Wizarding World of HP, it seriously sounds awesome and jealous that I'm way on the other side of the country. Can't wait for the California one to have some of that awesomeness.
