    Monsters Inc. Roller Coaster

    Quick question...What is the latest on that proposed Monsters Inc. roller coaster for Hollywood Studios. (Last I heard about it was some time ago, but it seemed rather definite.)
    Last time I rode STAR TOURS, I thought to myself, "If a droid is a pain in the......behind, does that make it a hemdroid?"

    Re: Monsters Inc. Roller Coaster

    Yeah, that rumor was hot like two years or so ago, and it gets trotted out occasionally when someone wants to talk DHS additions - but the ideal time would be to open just before Monsters Inc. 2, so if they want to capitalize, they need to get moving...they've got 2 years.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a Monster's Inc. dark ride like the one in DCA.

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    I can totally see a rollercoaster that simulates the whole door hopping scene at the end of the movie...it would be epic

    I think any big "E-Ticket" things like that are definitely off the table for awhile whilest Fantasyland is completely rebuilt.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Re: Monsters Inc. Roller Coaster

    Whatever they could do to draw more people to that park would help, IMO. Definitely my least favorite of the four gates.

    But, the key would be putting it on the opposite side of the park from Aerosmith RR/Tower of Terror. Perhaps if you get the thrills seekers to see more of the park it might keep them there, and coming back.

    I've always thought having those two rides right next to each other was a serious misstep. It's almost as though they are conceding that a large swath of park-goers are there simply for those two rides.

    if it does eventually find itself in MGM it would certainly be near Pixar Place... probably marking the end of the backlot tour...

    The original rumor had it going in the last of the soundstages, the one with the marquee that has said "Hot Set" for several years and used to be where the Sorcerer Mickey M&G used to be. Moving Mickey and "closing" that area lent credence to the rumor.

    They used to have the SWW sales stuff in there as well, but that was moved over by RNRC this year...so who knows what is going on this time?

    Re: Monsters Inc. Roller Coaster

    This would be pretty awesome to see --- I always get excited when I start to hear rumors, even if they may be a while off or never happen. Just interesting to speculate and think about.

    There does seem to be a decent amount of unused space in that area with the soundstages and such, but who knows what they actually use those buildings for. Besides cast members, of course.

    There could be enough space for it within the soundstages... Though I do think Disney might be looking for a replacement for the backlot tour eventually being that it already is a shell of it's former self...

    Seven Dwarves? Monsters, Inc? WDW is about three coasters away from becoming a Six Flags park.
