I dont see them using that ride system in this case unless they plan on completely changing the rides layout. Those rides use that system because of the ride layout and (in aquatopia's case, the whole is visable to the guests. With maina, you go from game to game and dont even pay attention to anything else really. I dont see them using that ride system. I also think that is the reason that the Ride and go seek ride use the Mainia ride system... Make sence? lol

^ Yeah, that ocurred to me when I was posting it. But, anything's possible I figured, especially with Tokyo Disney Resort.

More than likely, it will have ultra awesomely-done themeing done, like Tower and most everything else at TDS, lol.

Your toy store scenario sounds more in-keeping with that area of the park. That would be cool, if they did in fact, do it that way. The mini-boardwalk idea of Chuck's sounds possible, too.

^I dont realy like the concept art really though, and it does look like a boarkwalk. It looks alot like the origonal art for DCA, and it didnt really look that good at all. I hope they come up with a more origonal idea for the ride area and theming.

I just did a conversion on the currency, and TSM will cost approx. 115 MILLION dollars??

Um... That sounds like it may be just a "tad" different than the ones we have in the states, ala "Pooh". ;)

As far as location, what Wes said makes sense, except for two things:

Tower of Terror, and the Broadway Music Theater. That would create an extremely crowded corner of the park. The theater DOES attract a huge amount of people! What about in the place of the NY Deli, on the opposite (Med. Harbor) side of the theater? Of course that area could be a clusterf*** of people of epic proportions as well, unless the walkways were changed somewhat.

I dunno - BUT, TSM with a price tag of 115 million???

It will probably worthy of TDS!!

^WOW! Thats pretty big price tag. Ride and Go Seek cost about 88 million, so you might be right Jeff!

Also, I noticed in the concept are that there are train tracks in the ground (or what looks like train tracks) Which makes me think the ride will be going right next to tower here. Its the only open space in the area.

Chris, that's pretty much the area that Wes was referring to.

As you face ToT, the restrooms are to the left. Then there's a backstage area behind it, that you can see from the monorail. IIRC, those buildings looked like they were almost "temporary" buildings. So, maybe it could be built there from the ground up, all the way to the monorail line??

Dunno.

But, like I said, *I* think that would be creating a huge traffic jam in that corner of the park.

Time will tell.

All we can think is that WDI did a wonderful job of TSM at Disneyland with a similar boardwalk theme and to this point TDS has taken every concept and upped it quite a bit, so I have faith that they can pull this off, but I agree a boardwalk theme in that area of the park wouldn't be my first choice.

I can't wait to see what this looks like when they finish it. Even though these aren't original attractions, I think they are solid additions to the Tokyo Disney Resort!

NEWS: Tokyo DisneySea to receive new version of Fantasmic!

Postby jedimaster1227 » Tue Feb 02, 2010 8:38 pm

D23 has announced that Tokyo DisneySea will be getting a new version of the nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic!

http://d23.disney.go.com/articles/02021 ... Tokyo.html

Tokyo DisneySea today announced that a new nighttime entertainment spectacular, Fantasmic!, will premiere in April 2011 to kick off the yearlong celebration of the Tokyo DisneySea 10th Anniversary, which is September 4.

Taking place at night in Mediterranean Harbor, this 20-minute spectacular features Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, who creates a breathtaking world of wonder and imagination. The show features fantastic scenes from many familiar Disney films such as Aladdin, Cinderella and Finding Nemo, as well as a thrilling sequence of Mickey fighting a gigantic dragon. Filled with special effects using water and fire on the waters of Mediterranean Harbor, this dramatic show promises a night of unforgettable fantasy and excitement for all.

Performances of Fantasmic! will continue to be presented after the Tokyo DisneySea 10th Anniversary celebration ends. BraviSEAmo!, the nighttime show currently being presented, will end on November 13, 2010.

Oh good. I always thought BraviSEAmo! was kind of "weird." Saw it once and never felt the need to see it again.

The fire breathing dragon was cool, but the show was pretty much 20 minutes of that.

I'm not the biggest fan of Fantasmic either, but I'd probably make more of an effort to go see that show over the other one.

The best part about this is that they Disneyland Fanboys will no longer be able to say 'we have the better version of Fantasmic'!!!
