Disneyland: One Man's Dream Disney's America

After the demise of WestCOT, a new theme park idea emerged. The design was for a America themed park celebrating American history and culture. It was proposed to be built in Virginia, but the deal fell through.

The following were the ideas for the different lands:
Crossroads USA - A civil war era village that would serve as the hub of Disney's America. Guests would enter under an 1840s era train trestle, which featured antique steam trains that circled the park.
Native America - A recreation of a Native American village that would have reflected the tribes that were known in that part of the country. Guests would have also enjoyed interactive experiences, exhibits and arts and crafts, as well as a white water river raft ride that travelled throughout the area, based on the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Civil War Fort - A Civil War fort would have plunged guests into a more turbulent time of American history, and adjacent to it, a replica battlefield where Civil War re-enactments and water battles between the Monitor and the Merrimac would have once again been fought.
We The People - Moving into the 20th century, a replica of the Ellis Island building, which acted as the gateway to America for many immigrants in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Guests would have lived the "immigrant experience" through music, ethnic foods and a live show presentation.
State Fair - An area that was going to show how even during the Great Depression in the 1930s, Americans knew how to entertain themselves. With folk art exhibits and a live show on baseball, guests could also have enjoyed classic wooden thrill rides reminiscent of Coney Island.
Family Farm - A recreation of an authentic farm where guests could have had the opportunity to see different types of farm industries related to food production in addition to some hands-on experiences like milking cows and learning what homemade ice cream tasted like.
President's Square - A celebration of the birth of democracy and those who fought to preserve it. The Hall of Presidents from Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World would have been moved to this section of Disney's America.
Enterprise - A mock factory town, it would have highlighted American ingenuity where guests could have ridden a major roller coaster attraction called the "Industrial Revolution", traveling through a 19th century landscape with heavy industry and blast furnaces. And, on either side of the coaster would have been exhibits of famous American technology that defined the American industry in the past, and new developments that would have defined industries in the future.
Victory Field - Guests would have experienced what America's soldiers faced in the defense of freedom during the world wars. It would have been themed to resemble an air field with a series of hangars containing attractions based on America's military fight using virtual reality technology. The air field would have also served as an exhibit area of planes from different periods, as well as a place for major flying exhibitions. Soarin' from Epcot and Disney's California Adventure was originally proposed for this area.

In 1997, Disney was given the oppurtunity to build the park when the Knotts family announced that Knotts Berry Farm was for sale. Disney was planning to convert this park into Disney's America. Many areas were designed to stay. All of Ghost Town was going to be utilized and saved. The area near the Mystery Lodge was going to be turned into the Native American area in the designs. Reflection lake would be turned into Freedom Lake and be modeled after Ellis Island and celebrated the Immigration area.

This idea wasn't very practical, unfortuantely. It would be to expensive to run a monorail line all the way down to Knotts. Buss transportation would be a nightmare. Unlike WDW, Disney had to take into consideration the thriving city surrounding the parks. Once again, the way city of Anahiem was built around the park caused thse problems.

But also Knotts did not want to sell to Disney. They felt that Disney would ruin much of what the famiy had built all these years. Ironically, when Cedar Fair ended up winning Knott's with the highest bid, it ruined much of what the Knotts family had built. Disney would have actually kept more of the original park.

Now, final plans were being made on a park in Disneyland's parking lot. And it wasn't WestCOT.

Remembering 9/11: Reflecting on the Events

After the attacks on September 11, all airlines were grounded for days. Airports closed. Many museums and monuments in Washington DC and throughout the country shut down. Hollywood Studios, shopping centers, stores, schools, and jobs shut down for the day as well. So did Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal, and many other theme parks and vacation spots. Events around the country, such as shows, sporting events, and other were cancelled. Places around the world shut down due to safety concerns.

Right around the time this is published, President George W. Bush addressed the nation. He promised justice and safety to the American people.

People around the nation proudly displayed flags and symbols of America. Vigils were held for those who lost their lives around the world. People were eager to send relief to families affected by the attacks and those who were working around the clock to save people in the wreckage.

America would never be the same again. From this point on, we were stronger. We were closer. We knew what it truly ment to be an American.

God Bless all of you. God Bless those who lost their lives in the attacks. God Bless the brave men and women who ran into the burning towers to save lives as they were collapsing. God Bless all those who helped in the recovery. God Bless everyone affected by this tragedy.

And God Bless America.

Remembering 9/11: The Pentagon Attack

At the exact moment this is posted, United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into an open field in Pennsylvania. It is believed to have been heading to The US Capitol or The White House. However, due to the efforts of the people on board the plane, they were able to gain control of the plane and keep it from crashing into a building. These people in particular should be regarded as heros. Their heroic actions helped save the lives of countless people.

Remembering 9/11: The Collapse of Tower Two

Eight years ago, at this moment in time, The South World Trade Center Collapsed due to structual failure after burning for 56 minutes. Those people who died included people who had no chance of escaping, emergency responders, NYPD, NYPD, EMTs, and many others. I'm unfamilair with who exactly worked in what tower, so I will split the list of people who died in 2.

Disneyland: One Man's Dream- The Future that Never Was

No that I get into things that were closer towards the present. I know it was around this time I made the first pilgrimage to Disneyland when I was little. I even remember these changes happening.

Like in Tomorrowland. We've already established it's been a constant headache to the Disney Co. A few years the planned retheme of Tomorrowland to Tomorrowland 2055 fell through due to budgets, another idea was quickly concieved.

Things started moving very quickly for the retheme. Tomorrowland began to get a new color scheme, filled with rich bronze and gold colors along with some emerald and black hues. Most noticable was the change in color in Space Mountain from white to... well...this.

It was really based on Jules Verne's style of futurism, and was referred to as "The Future that Never Was". It's focus revolved around the fantasy of the future, and was not set to a specific date in time. The land also contained edible vegitation, symbolising that all landscaping in the future was going to be edible.

In 1995, the PeopleMover took it's last lap around the track above Tomorrowland. A little time would pass before a new attraction was to be put up there. Rocket Rods was a high speed ride that took people over the same track the PeopleMover went over and went through the same rides. The ill-fated ride travled very fast, then slow down to make tight turns that were hard to make due to the lack of banked turns. This caused many problems with the ride, especially it's control computer, causing many breakdowns. The fact that it traveled the 16 minute PeopleMover track in 3 minutes also were not good for the track. Rocket Rods was supposed to go down for a refurb, but never opened again. Since then the track as become cracked and overgrown, but repaintings restored fate that a new ride- either the PeopleMover or something else- would emerge. Those rumors still circulate today.

Then, in 1996, the Carousel Theater walls were torn down to make way for the new attraction, Innoventions. This attraction ties in with the idea of brining cutting edge technology to Tomorrowland showcasing the newest technologies in entertainment, living, and health.

Mission to Mars was replaced by Red Rockett's Pizza Port, a new restaurant. Outside, a new water fountain play area was built around a moving ball called Cosmic Waters. It was pretty cool and ingenious.

Rocket Jets were also replaced by Astro Orbitor. It was the same ride concept- you rode a rocketship around in the air. However, Astro Orbitor was moved down from the station above the late PeopleMover track to in front of the tracks at the enterance of Tomorrowland. The old Rocket Jets were remodeled into a new show piece called the Observatron, which would come alive in motion and music ever 15 minutes.

Captain EO was replaced with Honey I Shrunk the Audience, a 3D show that played and continued to play in Epcot.

Finally, Autopia was closed in 1998- both Fantasyland and Tomorrowland Autopia shut down to combine into 1 large Autopia. Why were ther more then 1? Well, for years there were different versions- some made for adults, some for kids, others for family. In this case, Fantasyland Autopia was a back-up in case the Tomorrowland Autopia was too crowded. In 2000, the ride reopened with 3 different types of cars, all futuristic looking.

This was the last complete overhall Tomorrowland has recieved to date. But slowly over time, the color scheme and theme of the area would begin to recede- and the classic white/blue/red colors would start to return.

Disneyland: One Man's Dream- The Indiana Jones Adventure

The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Specatcular! was a hit in MGM Studios, so Disney decided to bring an attraction like that to Disneyland. They didn't want the same exact thing, so they decided to try something new. They already had a setting in mind: the Lost Delta in India, 1935.

Early concepts for the ride included a walk through and a mine ride, similar to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (my favorite Indy movie, I might add!). Imagineers then decided to do a jeep ride through an achient temple.

There was only one problem: the technology for this ride was not yet available! The Imagineers wanted to make it incredibly realistic that you were going through an anchient tample ready to colapse around you. But they also wanted the ride to be safe. That's when they developed EMVs- Enhanced Motion Vehicle. The car it self would move, simulating going over rough and rugged terrain. It was a cobination of a simulator and a dark ride, with over 160,000 possible ride combinations. No two rides would be alike!

The ride itself started construction in 1993. Because of the massive building that would hose the ride, the Jungle Cruise queue was moved into a two story building. The monorial tracks outside the berm also had to be moved. To get back to the ride itself, the Indy queue would be 1/2 a mile long.

This also called for a retheme of Adventureland itself. Now, Adventureland was a trading outpost that sprung up around the temple excavation. A few years later, The Swiss Family Treehouse became Tarzan's Treehouse, mathcing the theme better and tieing in with the new movie Tarzan.

The basic story of Indiana Jones was this: the long lost Temple of the Forbidden Eye was found by Indy. The temple was excavated and opened up to tourists. They could either be granted Enternal Youth, Earhtly Rices, or Future Knowledge. However, if you looked into the eyes of the diety Mara, you found your doom.

Soon, some tourists began to not come out of the temple. Indy returned and tried to find them, but never came out. Now, it's your turn to try to find him!

I could describe the ride, but I think this video I made explains it better then I can.

Indiana Jones is truly one of the best rides at any theme park. It is my second favorite (after Pirates, of course!) and is truly remarkable- and fun!

Disneyland: One Man's Dream- Opening Toontown to the Public

The movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (one of my favorites, I might add) first showed all non-toons Toontown. It's the place where our favorite cartoon characters lived. And it was also there before Disneyland was even dreamed of.

Legend has it that in 1952, Walt was talking to Mickey about his dream park, and Mickey suggested he build it right next to where he lived in Toontown. Walt agreed, but decided to hide Toontown from the guests so Mickey could have some peace and quiet.

It wasn't until 1993 that Mickey decided to let guests in Toontown. A portal between Fantasyland and Toontown was dug underneath the train tracks, and people could finally enter Toontown. Although the Downtown portion was still closed.

In reality, it was because Roger Rabitt's Cartoon Spin was still under construction. While guests could explore Mickey's House and meet all the toon friends, the big draw for the land would not open until the following year.

The premisis for Roger Rabitt's Cartoon Spin was that guests would board Lenny, Benny the Cab's twin, and take him to find Roger who was riding around in Benny. You and Roger both got into trouble with the weasels and the dip made you spin out of control.

This was a unique darkride because guests would be able to spin through the ride. When this idea was concieved, Imagineers were not sure if it would work or not. To find out, they attached one of the Mad Teacups to Pinocchio's Daring Jounrey- and it worked!

The land was a hit with kids, and old and young alike continued to enjoy visiting. Toontown was created to look like a cartoon. There is not one straight line in the land, it's all bent and curvey. The deatails in this land, like the manhole that talks, or the cartoonish light poles, really add to the expierence.

And an even more detailed attraction was on the horizon...

Disneyland: One Man's Dream- Fantasmic!

In 1992, Fantasmic! premiered. It was unlike anything ever done at Disneyland before, or any park for that matter.

The show features many Disney characters who are in Mickey's dream. Soon, the villians take over and turn the dream into a nightmare. While the plot itself is cute and fun, it's really the technology that leaves people in awe.

First of all, the light poles that appear are truly hightech. During the day, they are hidden underneath New Orleans Square, camoflauged from view. But at night before show time, they "magically" move out ofthe ground. Then after the show, they dissapear once again.

First, you have the characters that just appear and dissapear on the Island. They do this from underground pits below the stage via lifts. Pyro, fog, and other effects shroud the movement so we, the audience don't see it.

The mist screens are where the movie clips are projected. Recently, the cameras that project these became HD, so it's clearer then before.

In the final battle between Malificent and Mickey, Malificent becomes a dragon. A new dragon was supposed to premiere in June, but it broke and made it's debut three months later. The dragon lights the lake on fire. This pat is usually the part that leaves the audience in shock. How can a lake go on fire? Well, natural gas runs in pipes on the river floor, and during the show bubbles up to the surface. The fire emerges from the dragon and the lake goes on fire. When Mickey defeats the dragon, the gas is turned off, and the fire is extiguished.

The boats are also really cool. The Columbia becomes home to Peter Pan, and the fight goes uon between Peter Pan and Captain Hook. It even has a real cannon that gets shot off during the show. The Mark Twain becomes home to all the Disney charatcers during a stirring finale.

Fantasmic! has proved so popular, it has been running 2 shows most days of the year (sometimes even 3) for 17 years, with no end date in sight.

Here's the video. The show is truly great (Much better then DHS's show, which was copied from Disneyland. DOn't see it. It's very disapointing, especially after seeing Disneyland's show).

Disneyland: One Man's Dream- The Life and Death of WestCOT

The Second Gate at Disneyland was going to be huge.

But before we get into WestCOT, let's look at EPCOT for a moment.

EPCOT was the ultimate dream of Walt Disney. EPCOT, or Enviornmental Protoype Comunity of Tomorrow, was going to be an well planned urban utopia which was o be part of Disneyworld in Florida. I think Mr. Walt Disney can explain it better then I can:

When Walt passed away, The Disney Company decided it did not want to take on the task of running a town. So, they decided to turn EPCOT into a theme park. At first, Epcot was going to be about the future. But really, some Imagineers wanted to keep it futuristic, and others wanted a theme park showcasing the customs of different worlds. Eventually, these 2 ideas were pushed together, and EPCOT Center was born.

There were several problems with Epcot. First of, it was so spread out. Walking around the park took very long and got many guest tired easily. Secondly, what you saw in Epcot was what you got. In the World Showcase, there were no side streets to explore it was just 1 large area that you entered, and quickly left. Unless you wlaked through it, you really weren't thrust into the area it represented it. And most importantly, kids as well as adults found the area boring, with to much focus on education, and not enough kids attractions.

Imagineers took this into consideration when Micheal Esiner told them to "Amaze Me!". And that they did.

Many aspects were the same in WestCOT as in Epcot. The park was made up of a Future World and a World Showcase. But WestCOT was different then Epcot in most ways.

First we have World Showcase. Instead of idividual countries making up the area, there would be regions, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Not only did this conserve space, but it also would show much more diverse regions. This concept would also show you how different cultures affected each other's development, and the cultural diffusion that went on throughout history. And there would be a hotel in the park. If you looked up, you could see people living above you in France or Italy. It was going to be very unique.

There was going to be a ride called "Ride The Dragon" in Asia. Guests would ride a roller coaster themed to a dragon in the middle of a Chinese New Year celebration. Because of the hieght of the hotel, the rides could be housed on the lower floors while the higher floors served as a berm.


Europe: Asia:

The signature ride in WestCOT would be the World Cruise. This attraction would act like the Disneyland Train, taking you from region to region. Guests would board boats that took them past famous Audio-Animatronic scenes from throughout history. For instance, when you went into Europe, you'd see the burning of Rome, the painting of the Mona Lisa, and more. This part of the voyage would last about 9 minutes, at which point you could either exit and explore the area or continue on with the ride. There would be about 5 stops, making this 45 minute attraction the longest in Disney history.

At the center of WestCOT would be a 300 foot golden ball similar to Epcot's Spaceship Earth, This one would be bigger and would be dubbed "Spacestation Earth". The Future World Area around it would house various rides from Epcot, and also an updated version of Adventure Thru Innerspace, called Cosmic Journeys.

So, with stunning concept art, and a great plan, what was the problem? Well, WestCOT itself cost $2 billion. The locals were also less then thrilled about seeing Spacestation Earth from there backyards. Disney then proposed to change it into a odd looking sprie, partly due to the protests of the locals, and partly because of the terrible view guests would see from Main Street.

Still, fate seemed to be against WestCOT. And it was just too much and too expensive. And with EuroDisney failing in France, the idea was finally scrapped in 1995. It seemed like Disneyland would never become a resort.

But even as new rides were added to Disneyland, the idea of a second gate for the park never disappeared. Where there's a will, there's a way.
