I do hope if/when it does come here, that it is a unique ride, not a clone of Mystic Manor, Ratatouille, or Winnie the Pooh. Although, the Ratatouille ride could work in France at Epcot as a replacement for Impressions de France. Or in DHS at an expanded Pixar Place.
I'd love to see Mystic Manor at DCA and have it be themed to a magician's house, like a Harry Houdini kind of person. Or a fortune teller or something. That would work great at Paradise Pier.
I'd also like to see a straight-up clone of Mystic Manor at Disney Animal Kingdom. I think the story fits in great there...an adventurer and his monkey and he has collected all these animal artifacts of mythological creatures from around the world. And they come to life in his mansion.
I'm never going to go to Hong Kong in my lifetime and I would love to experience Mystic Manor in Florida.
So I think we can forget about Mystic Manor at WDW or DL. That's an experience for Hong Kong. Now, how would WDI employ this tech to tell an American story?
Ratatouille would work better in Disneyland or DCA. Whereas both would work well at WDW with all the space they have. Ratatouille can either be installed in the Magic Kingdom or Epcot (France Pavilion). Mystic Manor would work in Animal Kingdom or DHS. I'm just not sure it will make it anytime soon to WDW with all the Avatar and Star Wars action plans.
Thus, I think Disneyland or DCA should be the right candidate for the rides, but who knows if the Tomorrowland renovation or Monsters takes priority.
I hope Disney gives their franchises a rest (except for the DHS) and put more original stories and characters in their parks.
Did anyone else heard that?
DCA is a park themed around California...based in California...with the name California is it's title.
No one is going to DLP for a true, authentic, Paris experience. It's a theme park & the fact Ratatouille is based in Paris is just gives the ride a nice "local" flavor.
It's a new attraction......in a secondary park that desperately needs it. While I agree it won't suddenly elevate the park, it's a nice, solid step in the right direction.
