Tommorwland Speedway Replacement?Walt Disney World: What would you like?
From Tyler HarrisEverybody is talking about Stitch getting replaced by something, but remember a huge chunk of space in the MK will be there if the Speedway went down for a better attraction. If the Speedway was dismantled, what would replace it?

From David L.Part of it should be annexed into Fantasyland (Alice in Wonderland dark ride and restaurant and maybe even maze). The rest should include a nicer restaurant for Tomorrowland, Some E-ticket (Tron?), and a smaller attraction. However, I think the rest of Tomorrowland needs to be refocused before expanding into the speedway.

From Andy MilitoI would also love to see a Tron ride, maybe an indoor roller coaster if they ever found the space.

From TH CreativeJourney to the Center of the Earth. Nice transition between the technological Tomorrowland and Fantasyland.

From Joey IThis does not really fit in Tomorrowland or MK at all, but I'd love too see a Sugar Rush Speedway

From Andy Milito^ I dig it. I think Wreck-It Ralph needs a presence somewhere.

From Andrew DoughertyI actually dont mind that idea. If they decided to theme accordingly and somehow make it fit into Fantasyland, it could be great.

From Will SullivanI like the Wreck It Ralph Speedway idea, although isn't that more vintage than futuristic?

From Andrew DoughertyMario Kart overlay anyone?

From Dominick DYou know, Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't breach Universal's contract, and if the film is a success it'd be a great fit for Tomorrowland.

From Matt BabiakI don't get how Tomorrow Land Speedway is one of the biggest rides on property in terms of physical space, can be so mediocre, and still be there. Although it might not even be the biggest culprit on property (Backlot Tour getting a play here). Both TMS and Backlot could be washed off the face of the earth and have a huge ride/2 decent sized rides and a mini land, respectively.

From Tyler HarrisDisney needs a ride that can challenge Forbidden Journey in technology, and Guardians of the Galaxy just might fit that billing! I was thinking a Journey 2 high tech ride.

From O TTomorrowland is a mess. Theming wise it almost had nothing to do with the future. Monster laughing floor, toys shooting range, it's a mess.

If it was up to me it would get an retro Jules Verne. steam punk remake. Ditch the noise speedway and give some room to fab 5. Yes I know they just got rid of it but it was never build to last. So now do it right and pay tribute to Donald, Mickey, Goofy and the rest. Add some smaller rides and extend to the other side of the train track for an E-ticket family ride to go with Scrooge Mc Duck and the gang on an adventure to an exotic place to find a treasure. Make it trackless and fun.
