    Post If you were in control of Disneyland for a day...

    ...what changes would you make to the park that would last for that day or until somebody did something about it?

    Lower prices, create new ride(s), give Eisner the boot?

    Thanx to good ol' Wildrider for this one!

    Cool

    I would bust litterers, unauthorized smokers & bird brains who pull stunts that endanger themselves or others.
    Also visitors would not be permited to completely clog the walkways like they do right accross the path or in the middle of things, got to keep the river of people flowing, grab a clue.

    well if it was a slow time of the year and say mid-week I would make all Disney merchandise 50% off for the day and maybe have a drawing of say 100 lucky winners for an annual free pass.....would definately make more business,does anyone agree?

    I would drop the prices and invite some organizations for underprivilaged kids to come and play in the park. I would have lots of characters all over the park, easy to find. I would have a dinner party in Club 33. I would run around all the hidden underground places and check out the backstage areas. I would take those autopia cars off the tracks after the park closes, take off whatever makes them go so slow, and drive them all over disneyland, hehehe. I would also have to look inside Walt's apartment on Main Street, cause I have always wondered what it looked like in there.

    EEyore,

    That's a lot of stuff to ask for!...

    Believe me, backstage Disneyland isn't anything special. It looks almost like a studio backlot. People in costume smoking and eating, that's all. And smelly trash compactors.

    And as far as Walt's apartment. It's really cool, however nothing REALLY special. Be warned, it smells like old people in there and it's REALLY tiny. About the size of a smaller studio apartment. The "main room" has two beds with sofa chairs all over, and the kitchen it along the back wall. Behind the kitchen area is the bathroom, where these is a cool shower. Not only does it have the one nozzle at the top, but about 3 along down the way so you can get "all" of your body sprayed. Walt was an innovative guy ... Oh yeah, i thought this was cool. Outside next to the bathroom, is a tiny flight of steps (like 4 or 5 steps), and it leads out to this patio area, where Walt and Lillian used to view parades without being seen. You wouldn't even notice them from down below on Main St..

    However, looking at the Castle in the morning light is really awesome

    Cool description of Walt's apartment driftwood, thanks. I guess the place doesn't seem as magical if you are working there everyday, but I still would go backstage just out of curiosity.

    Well, I have to admit, it is pretty cool seeing Mickey or Minnie scratch themselves when backstage. One day a group of us were walking to our cafeteria and we passed Goofy in costume. It looked like he was looking up and lost(he was wandering around before we passed him), because he needed to look thru the mouth where the screen is. So we all said "Hey Goofy how's it going" and he was like "Hey guys". I found that pretty funny.

    About Walt's apartment, you need to really know some people to get in there. It's not like anyplace backstage you can walk into, you need to know who to talk to. It's still considered sacred ground by us. I was amazed that I was inside where he lived though. I looked out the window (where the light is) and looked at all the people walking by on Main St below. How I'd love to live there

    That is pretty funny about the characters backstage behavior, lol.

    I think the apartment is pretty sacred too, and that is why I would only look in there, and not stay in there. That is really awsome you got to stand at the window and look down at Main Street. You would have to wonder while you were doing it, how many times Walt stood there looking out at his park and the ppl. I don't think I will ever meet the right ppl to let me do that though!

    Probably one of the biggest changes I would make at the park is to get it back to it's roots and what Walt wanted it to be. I think it has gotten away from that somewhat, and too much for the $$$$$$.
