I see what your saying. I personally don't think they'll copy CarsLand for the world. They might add things to it and make it unique. I think Disney only brings the most popular attractions to the opposite coast. We know they don't do it with everything...

I know folks think HS needs more rides for kids. How about a "racing" ride based on the candy cars from Wreck it Ralph? With no nasty diesel engines like Tomorrowland Speedway. Either electric or on a powered track. Could even be virtual like the old Motion ride in Epcot where the graphics make it seem fast but actual speed is pretty slow.

I could get behind this even though it's not Pixar. I could also see a Sugar Rush ride built on the TestTrack/Radiator Springs Racers slot-car model. My bet though is that they're going to put that in one of the other Disneylands (Paris maybe?) since the build-your-own-car model has already been introduced at TT.

Why even do the Racers ride out here? The reason we don't have the Indiana Jones ride in Orlando, so I keep reading, is because its the same ride system (and, according to some, track layout) as Dinosaur. And RSR, while having slight differences in layout, is basically Test Track, but you race! I mean I like TT and all, but the same basic ride at 2 different parks? I don't know.

Good point.

If IJ isn't the exact same track layout as Dinosaur, it's very similar. And the video I just watched of the Racers looked like it had more in common with TT than just the ride mechanism. Maybe Sugar Rush will be the slot car ride they use in Shanghai.

I'm still hoping for an expanded Pixar Place with the Monsters Inc. coaster, and whatever else imagineering can come up with. Maybe even get the Luxo anamatronic working again.

I don't see a replica of RSR coming to DHS because of Florida's rainy days. They would have to shut it down too much.

That's what I would like, a true Pixar Place with a mix of Pixar movies featured.

If WDW does get a Carsland, I hope that it's a bit different than the one in Disneyland. I haven't been to DLR, but I think having attractions that are unique to each park would be nice.

Although I'm personally not a Star Wars fan, I think a Star Wars area (a few attractions, a ts restaurant) would do very well as an expansion.

I just don't see a full-on CarsLand happening at WDW, or atleast DHS. From the more well informed CMs I've talked to, there doesn't seem to be enough space at DHS to replicate the entire Carsland. Even taking over the backlot tour and the stunt show won't give enough space for everything.

I don't think it will be an exact replica, I think the DL version was in some respects a "practice" for something bigger at WDW. I don't think we'll see a "Carsland" as such, I think the most likely result will be a "Pixar Park" that will include a Cars section.

I also don't think we will see a Carsland. The main ride is basically test track outside. I think if anything, there will be some elements (cones hotel is first that comes to mind) and a cars dark ride since DHS is severely lacking in high capacity, young kid friendly dark rides (that also have limited operating disruptions with the extreme Florida weather).

I am a big fan of more "boy" rides, but I just don't see a full Carland replica happening. I would think an expanded Pixar Place is entirely realistic though.

I would *love* to see a carsland at WDW, just because it was the most immersive land I've ever visited at a Disney park. I was hands down BLOWN AWAY by the sheer awesomeness of it.

I do agree that they'd need a weatherproof answer to RSR, but I disagree that it's the same thing as Test Track. Are there similarities, sure. But there are similarities to Astro Orbiter, Aladdin, and Dumbo, and those are all in the same park!

I really really loved Carsland at DCA, but I hope instead of copying Carsland into DHS, they do a Pixar theme land and include more of the movies. The Up version of a Soarin'-type ride mentioned at the beginning of the thread sounds amazing! And the long rumored Monsters Inc. roller coaster would be a great addition.

While this thread makes me REALLY excited for possible new things at HS (our 2nd fav park right behind MK), my excitement is dampered by the relization that any new area of this scale would take 3+ years to complete even if if were started today. Think Fantasyland...

Look at it this way though...Do you really want it to take less time than that? Because if it does, then it would be Six Flag quality. I agree, it stinks to wait, but at least we know we are waiting for quality
