Actually You have it all wrong

Suspended coasters are coasters where you are sit in a car and the car is suspended from the track and able to swing back and forth

Vortex at Canada's Wonderland is a good example.

An inverted Coaster is where the track is above the trains and your feet hang.

A good example of this is the Dueling Dragon's (or whatever it's called now) at IOA

Then I had it right google Big Bad Wolf and see the pictures that come up and how they are the same as the ones you just posted (For the suspensed coaster). In fact you first link in the comments is being compared to Big Bad Wolf. The previous person before me said your feet have to dangle I said they did not.

Its my own fault tho for posting from my phone so not wanting to type out a whole big long paragraph.

Not how it looked off to the rest of the interwebs but yes BBW was suspended. It was also an amazing ride but that is now neither here nor there.

Anyways If the MI door coaster materializes it better not be a Vekoma SLC. They are known for being the most painful coasters to ride.

Also To semi-quote extreme makeover home edition

There just seems to be wayyy to much work going on here for one park, especially since Avatar is the next project in line and won't be done until 2016. Also I'm sure cars land would be cool, but the main attraction in that land is basically already at Epcot in Test Track. No reason to have the same type of ride in two different parks with a different theme. Just doesn't make sense to me.
What about Dumbo vs the Flying Carpet?
Don't get me wrong, I love Test Track, but it would be better for the crowds in my opinion...

God i hope this is true, this is the one park I only go to, once every 5 years as I am so disappointed with it each time I go. I really want to love this park but it really needs this badly

Re: Iger mentioning that major capital spending projects were concluding, you have to put the word "major" in perspective. A major revamp of a current park adding a whole new land, building the second of two massive new cruise ships, the beginning phases of a whole new Disneyland in another country, plus the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history in the Fantasyland expansion.

It makes Avatarland and a possible Hollywood Studios update seem like not so big a deal.

For what it's worth.

Idea for Layout of Park. Now, DHS is a timeline of the Walt Disney Studio in Hollywood.

The front entrance leads to Hollywood Blvd, and eventually to Crossroads of the World, which sevres as the new icon.

The Backlot Tour is revamped to now be themed, The Making of DHS theme park and a History of the Walt Disney Studio.

The front of the park will be the 1920s and 30s featuring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, Daisy, Chip, Dale, and others.
Attractions will include:
Mickey's Country House
Minnie's Country House
The Magic of Disney Animation
The Entrance to the Backlot Tour
Disney Mania Show (from Magic Kingdom, circa 1990s)
Mickey Mouse rollercoaster
Chef Mickeys (imported from the Contemporary)
Meets and Greets with Classic Characters.

This section will also include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs characters, with the WDW return of "Snow White's Scary Adventures," along with a 25 minute version approx. of the Disneyland Snow White Show.
Meet and Greets will be held outside the theatre with Snow White, the Prince, The Queen, Dopey, Doc, and the others.

As we approach the second section of the park, we run into the 1940s at the Walt Disney Studios.

Attractions and character dining will be based on the following.
-Pinnochio
-Fantasia
-Bambi

We now approach the 1950s with Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, amongst several others. Each decade will be featured along the format of "the 1940s".

The 1960s and 1970s will be grouped together. This is the final "land" as we are now approaching the park's new icon, Crossroads of the World, where you can find rare character appearances. Directly behind Crossroads of the World will be a two story building with three floors. Floor 1 will be an updated version of the Great Movie Ride, now titled, The Wonderful World of Disney and will feature Walt Disney through various times in his career (Beginning of the studio, Release of Snow White, Meetings with Mary Poppins creator PL Travers... etc, the opening day of Disney Land...) The second floor, will be a character dining experience with the Disney Villains along the lines of the dinner formerly presented at 1900 Park Fare. The top floor will be Walt Disney One Man's Dream.

To the left of the decades will be the 1980s and 1990s and the Disney Renaissance- themed restaurants, attractions, shows, and meet and greets.

To the right of the decades will be Walt Disney Pictures in the New Millenium with Disney Channel themed attractions, as well as The Emperor's New Groove, Chicken Little, Enchanted, Tangled and others....

Behind the Disney 2000s section will be Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
Behind the Disney Renaissance section will be Jim Henson characters, rides and attractions.
Behind Crossroads of the World, between The Muppets and Indiana Jones will be the PIXAR place, including Toy Story Mania and others.

Tower of Terror and Rock n Roller will be featured on opposite sites of the park to influence the crowds and not send them all running down one road at once.

Several of the character meets will include FASTPASS as Mickey Mouse in Town Square on Main Street USA currently does.

Here is a diagram (made on Paint, so sorry if it looks basic) to provide a visual aid.

Wow, you've certainly put a lot of time into this plan. Sounds like a well-thought out plan, but I'm sure things like rnrc and tot would never be moved. And what would you do for any new films that were released? I think DHS has limited space for expansion, it seems like the smallest of all the parks by quite a bit, so maybe the acreage just isn't there?

That was impressive but it would take so long to move either rnrc or tot that it may be even worse for crowd control but i'm not saying your plan is a bad one

That's really not that true. I went with my High school during my junior year and everyone could name the movie all of the scenes were from. Sure the montage at the end is hit and miss but it is the ride that is an homage to what the park is supposed to be. You really can't get rid of it.

I hope at least some of this comes true. this is only a 1/2 day park for us now. And the one we choose to miss if we take a short trip.

Oh well, I guess they know what they are doing. I'm sure people will like ANYTHING new at DHS.
I agree with the idea of a pixar land! That would be really sweet, especially the Monster's Inc. rollercoaster and the Pixar character meals. I think that's better than having a whole part of the park dedicated to just Cars. Maybe a Cars Go Kart Ride could appear in the Pixar land.

On another note, I'm sad about the Beauty and the Beast Show being cancelled I wish they could just move it to MK instead of completely scrapping it...
