Five International Disney Attractions That Should Come To The States
We’re looking at you Tokyo DisneySea
Well for most American Disney fans they only focus on the two parks in America. Which is Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida. What if I told you that there are some spectacular attractions outside our borders? Walt Disney Imagineering has created some great attractions for the other parks around the world. Let’s check out the top five that should come to America either at Disneyland or Walt Disney World.
5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Sunken Treasure (Shanghai Disneyland)
Yes I know what you are going to say. Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World have Pirates of the Caribbean rides. I honestly wouldn’t mind a second ride in a different park. This version of the attraction looks more thrilling. From the screens to the new stunning audio animatronics. It has everything. Even a wicked cool underwater sequence.
4. TRON Lightcycle Power Run (Shanghai Disneyland)
This attraction is rumored to be heading to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot. I sure hope so. Look at how fast the attraction goes? Plus who hasn’t wanted to ride a lightcycle from TRON? The outside of the attraction looks very futuristic. So it would make a great addition to either Future World or Tomorrowland.
3. Ratatouille: The Adventure Ride (Disneyland Paris)
Well like I’ve written about before. I love dark rides. I wouldn’t mind a dark ride off of Disney-Pixar’s Ratatouille. The attraction in Paris looks like a lot of fun. France pavilion at Epcot could use a ride. The World Showcase needs more attractions. Trackless attractions seem the way to go these days.
2. Mystic Manor (Hong Kong Disneyland)
Mystic Manor, another trackless attraction is a fan-favorite for multiple reasons. The ride has a connection to Society of Explorers and Adventurers. Also known as S.E.A by Disney fans. The attraction is also not based off of a intellectual property so it was an original idea from Walt Disney Imagineering. Similar to how attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad were conceived without a IP. The attraction is highly themed and detailed which is why I want to see it come to the states.
1. Tokyo DisneySea (Yes, the whole park)
Yes, just give me that entire park. Somewhere in Walt Disney World or even at Disneyland. There are seven themed areas or “ports of call”. The entrance to the park is Mediterranean Harbor, which opens up to six more nautically themed ports: American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island. Especially with the incoming Frozen-themed port. I’m all in for a exact copy of Tokyo DisneySea coming to the states.
Well just like it’s a rare possibility that there will be a duplicate Cars Land coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. None of these awesome attractions will make it to America (except for TRON most likely). This makes sense from a business perspective. Why duplicate stuff when you can make it a destination to go there. I can only go to Shanghai to see this version of Pirates. I can only go to Hong Kong to see Mystic Manor. These type of things make it more likely for me to travel to different Disney Parks around the globe.
