Let Down Your Hair

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Blue. Today, we are sharing with you some of our favorite Disney movie scenes that we would to see recreated as a Disney attraction

It's funny - when I came up with this topic, I thought it would be easy, but boy was I wrong! 

My first choice - the movie that we watched and thought "that needs to be a ride" was Monsters, Inc.  Of course, the Disney's Imagineers have thought the same things with rumors of the Monsters, Inc/University Flying Doors Roller Coaster going around for years

My second thought was to cheat and go to Disney Junior - who doesn't want a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Attraction?  But, that's not a movie, so I kept on thinking...

Next thought?  Flight of the Navigator - I loved that movie growing up and I remember a rumor a couple of years ago that they may be re-doing it... It would be a perfect simulator like Star Tours, but I don't actually like those attractions, so I kept thinking..

Then came Princess and the Frog- an update to the Riverboat.  And, while I still think that's a great idea (come on, Animatronic Alligator playing trumpet?), I eventually decided on:

One of my favorite rides growing up was at Opryland (Nashville, TN.. now a shopping mall) - the swings.  I think the Silly Symphony Swings at Disney's California Adventure are the same type of ride, though I've never experienced them.. one day!

For Rapunzel's Swings, I would have center/to look like her tower and the swings hanging from her hair (obviously).  But, I would love to see them going up and down from the tower before they go around.  Nothing to crazy to make people ill (think Mission: Space), but to have the feeling that Rapunzel really is lifting you up with her hair..  Plus, I love Tangled!

What would you turn into an attraction?  I'd love to hear your thoughts, but while you're still here, check out what some of my blogging friends would do!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Capturing Magical Memories

  1. I think the Tangled ride is a fantastic idea!

  2. I like the idea but the swing rides make me sick. : ( So this is one I will enjoy watching from the ground.

  3. I love the Tangled attraction idea! It would be great to walk into Fantasyland and see Rapunzel's Tower!

  4. very fun! I too have thought of a MMC play area... and a play area based on Bucky the ship from Jake and the Neverland Pirates! :)

  5. Beth - I just found this. Now you can walk into Fantasyland and see Rapunzel's Tower... and utilize Rapunzel's Potties. The swings would have been way better!
