I would love to see some thing with the original characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto.

Maybe a ranch or circus type thing!

I would love this as well. Pluto is my favorite and he is seemingly thrown to the wayside.

Star Wars would be great of course, and it would be even better if it was a Mod !!!

I think people are overstating the value of the "suites" at AoA ...

They should NOT bring those to a Mod, why not ? The price !!! Those things are not cheap by any means. Its actually considerably cheaper to get 2 value rooms then getting a family suite. If they brought them to a mod, I would imagine they would cost about the price of a deluxe, and then, why bother ?

Not that I need it (since I live up North in Canada) But they could do a winter themed resort, that could be cool.

A classic characters resort would be great as well, Mickey, Minnie etc

Was thinking of the WS and why not the same for resorts, could have a Colonial Inn for USA and Bavarian Inn for Germany, An Outpost for Canada etc.

All with the original characters at each.

Would it be a value, moderate, or deluxe?

Yes, I was thinking of a deluxe for the castle. However, the village of Camelot could be a moderate or moderate plus with perhaps a walking trail and moat to cross to get to the casle

A winter themed resort could be awesome!! All the cool blues and whites and glittery beauty of a fresh snowfall on a sunshine filled winter's day. It could be given a Russian theme with troikas and horse rides and design elements from St Petersburg like onion dome rooftops such as are on the Church of the Spilled Blood. A reproduction of the grounds of the summer palace with its beautiful fountains and walkways would be inviting. The main building rooms could be fashioned after some in the Hermitage (such as the malachite room for the main lobby) and would be would be spectacular.

This could work well as a moderate resort. The canals of St Petersburg would be great for water activities and reproductions of the impressive bridges would be awe inspiring. Summertime could include a 'white nights of June' festival at the resort with special resort events.

It would be so beautiful!

I would love to see a resort themed after Greece or Greek Mythology. It could really work well as a deluxe resort!

A Venice-themed mod resort would be super cool! Hmmm...or maybe a Chinese theme with pagodas or a Scottish highlands theme?

I would love to see a Star Wars one but, as much as I love SW, I think one based on mythology (Greek, Roman or Egyptian pantheon) would be so cool and I'd be more likely to stay at.

I think there's something similar to this at the Disney in Tokyo.
