    Not a perfect fit but possible.

    I just can't see another coaster in DHS even though I would welcome this with open arms.

    Edit: Another idea would be to put Paradise Pier where Fantasmic is, have World of Colour be the new DHS show and move Fantasmic to Magic Kingdom like DL.

    It would be a huge shake up and wildy improbable but I like the idea.

    I am almost positive DHS isn't getting a Paradise Pier. I think it's just placemaking for the new "L.A. Basin" themed DHS.

    Reading books between the lines it's more self aggrandization from the WDI team from CA assigned to DHS who think they're the saviors of a quaint little podunk FL park.

    We're just a few puns away from DCA level self-love.

    If this leads to the addition of the Red Car Trolley to DHS, I'd be OK with that :thumbsup:

    Although I'm pretty sure DHS isn't getting a Paradise Pier, there is something to Fantasmic being used as a expansion area.

    According to Martin, Tron was planned to go there before it was moved to MK.

    Can they not add more things to Sunset Blvd. please? It’s already ridiculously crowded most days. They should connect to to Animations Courtyard in the future to fix that problem.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    TRON in a land themed to Old Hollywood? I totally believe that modern Disney would entertain a terrible idea like that. Thankfully they're putting the ride where it belongs.

    What are they shooting out of the guns in this pic? Is it pyro? It looks dangerous.

    An odd thought, could it be a blank?

    Blanks don’t really flash like that. In fact, actual ammo flashes are really hard to see at all in daylight.

    That’s some sort of pyro.

    It's almost like a roman candle blast.

    Good q. I’d assume some kind of short range pyro, like what Mickey uses in Fantasmic!.

    I wouldn't quite say they're putting it where it belongs, but they are
    putting it somewhere much better than Sunset Boulevard.

    Ironically... Tron would fit best in Epcot where Guardians is going (queued through Innoventions) and Guardians would fit in the Studios on Sunset Blvd.

    More or less, although I would argue Guardians of the Galaxy would be better in Tomorrowland since that's all generally skewing towards science fantasy.

    Thinking back, I may have got that wrong and it may have been GotG that was meant for Sunset (I'll check later), but it was one of those two.

    I thought a retheme of RNRC to GOTG was on the table at one point so that would make more sense. Heck, they are both rollercoasters so I couldn't see them putting a second one in that area.

    It was going to be there in addition to RNRC.
