    Submitting ideas to Disney

    I know Disney has a policy of not accepting any ideas from guests, (I know first hand. Many years ago I wrote a letter, email was not that popular then, with an idea and it was sent back. Strangley enough some time later I saw my idea come to fruition.) Anyway, is it at all possible to have anyone at Disney hear an idea from a guest?

    I thought you just tell Lou your idea and he picks up the red line straight to Bob Iger. Isn't that how it works???

    Back in 1992 while walking around The Magic Kingdom I thought it would be a great idea if the park had people, cast members, who's only job was to take your picture for you in front of whatever you wanted as the backround with your own camera. So instead of asking a stranger to do it for you, you just had to find one of these "picture people" to do it for you. When I went back a few years later, as we all know now, that's just what Disney has done, Photopass. Although they did "plus" the idea.

    I would like to see a "Disney Past" theme park where ALL of Disney's extinct rides and attractions are re-created somehow. Imagine being able to experience World of Motion again? And Horizons, Mr. Toad's Wild ride, The Sky ride that used to go across MK, the submarine ride etc. Something like "yesterland" as an opposite to "tommorowland" I'm all for change for future things, new ideas and stuff but.....there seemed to be a happy innocence to all of those old ride concepts

    I think that such a park would probably be infeasible, especially since it would be constantly increasing in size (hopefully without bound).

    A nice variation on the theme, however, might be some kind of virtual museum of extinct attractions. They could capture video and audio ridethroughs of existing attractions before they close, and put something web-based together that would allow guests to relive the experience after a fashion from kiosks somewhere in the parks, or perhaps even from home.

    Of course, we'd be out of luck on the many attractions that are already gone (unless they tried to cobble something together using old video and audio submitted by guests -- I bet they could get some excellent marketing out of that). But if WDW is still around in 25 years, as we all hope it will be, it is virtually guaranteed that some of the attractions that we all love today will be just memories eventually.

    The only people they accept ideas from are those within the Company. And even so, mainly Imagineers. I've heard that they don't even take proposals from Cast Members.
