You have an Awesome Thread post here! I Love it! :-)
I am New member here too. i will talk a little bit about my Disney love and i will also tell you about
My Dreamy Perfect Disneyland!!!
I am a Freelancer graphic designer working from my workshop at home.
I am from Cyprus, (a big and independent Mediterranean island in Europe..) probably most of you know it. ;-)
Almost about 15 years back, from a very young age, I liked studying Disneyland maps and learning them by-hard, before i even visit Disneyland Paris for the first time in my life.
I am a huge fan of Disney's art and Disneyland parks. Such as "concept-art drawings" around the globe.
When i was a kid, i didn't have a computer then and i was drawing a Disneyland map with pencils, using only the Disneyland brochures as a reference, from several travel agents. Disneyland parks, such as Disneyland Paris and Magic Kingdom's Florida.
Back then, when i traveled for the first time to Disneyland Paris with my school, I already Knew the park map by-heart, and my friends were surprised. :-)
NOW at this time, I have decided to design the Biggest in size, Magic Kingdom(Disneyland) park "MAP", in the World. A Mediterranean Disneyland!!!
And it will be in my Country of course. (It is my Biggest dream and my Wish, that one day they build one here!!!).
I gave it a name of: "DISNEYLAND RESORT CYPRUS", or "DISNEY's DREAMLAND" Resort Cyprus... I haven't decide which one yet. ;-)
So, I take the best attractions from all the Disneyland parks around the World such as (Paris, Florida, California, Tokyo etc...) and i have also added my own attractions, which they don't exist at no other Disney park.
I get Inspirations ONLY from Disney's Original Classics animation movies. Old and New together.
My dreamy Disneyland Logo will consists of the Symbols of the "Beast Castle" which is my Top Favorite Movie (Beauty & the beast)! and the Fame Mountain (i will explain later)... :-)
=> My Dreamy Perfect Disneyland Layout setup differs just a little bit from the other usual Disneyland parks!
It will consist of "9" LANDS !!! :
Main Street USA (It is different from other Main Streets layouts and will be at the Entrance, Outside of the Main Park and it will have the "Fame Mountain" at the End of Main street, which guests will enter Fairytale land. Just to give me more space for more Attractions in the Main park) // ADVENTURELAND // WILDERNESS LAND (known as Frontierland) // DISCOVERYLAND (Pocahontas New World Scenery, Dinosaurs, Atlantis etc...) // FAIRYTALE LAND (known as Fantasyland, which i don't like the "Fantasyland" as a name and it will be my Biggest in size Land!) // TOON TOWN // SMALL-WORLD LAND or TINY LAND (it will be the land of "small size" creatures, such as tiny fairies, Toys and bugs life) and people will get "shrinked" to enter that Land!!! // SCI-FI LAND (known as Tomorrowland), which I don't like that name also. It takes me back, before the year of 2000 (it is so Old-fashioned name for me) & // SPOOKY LAND!! (Haunted Mansion, Maleficent's Forbidden mountain Castle & Dragon Show, Hades Underworld boat ride, The Horned King's castle & the 3 witches Cottage, from the "Black Cauldron", The walk through Dark-Haunted-Forest (small in size) from the old Disney movie "Legend of the Sleepy Hollow" and the Best of all and Favorite One, "The Halloween Town" from The Nightmare Before Christmas!!! ;-)
When i finish designing my MAP, I will Publish it.
And Later i would like to learn and create a blog or website, for other people to display their own Designs creations about "Disneyland parks" ideas, discuss their opinions about the parks, about the attractions, the Characters "Mascot costumes" (for Improvements), and more.. :-)
