    Hey now, lets not encourage them to remove 3 small rides for one larger ride. Now if you want to relocate those 3 rides, then sure. But the park needs all the rides it can get without removing a few to add one.

    Perhaps it could be three attractions, with Searider replacing the three flats and two attractions at the expansion plot, that are layered to two floors (similar to Pandora)? It's worth thought, especially as it sounds like the middle of the Screamin Helix is finally getting a proper attention at that location.

    The number of attractions doesn't matter. The amount of guest's they consume does. SeaRider has a massive queue. It would increase capacity of the park even after the 3 flat rides have been removed.

    Replacing 3 rides with 3 rides keeps the ride count the same, or replacing 3 rides with one ride that has a massive queue... doesn't matter. Its all about making the ride count go up... the more rides there are, the longer the people will stay in the park, the longer they stay in the park, the more money people will spend. "ITS THE CIRCLE OF LIFE... AND IT MOVES US ALL..."

    While the park needs more big rides, it also needs the small flat rides to balance it out. You can't expect people to just waste their time in line for one big ride like SeaRider when they can do a lot more in the park.

    In the case of DCA, It doesn't matter. The park is jammed with flat rides and big rides. Pixar Pier is also expected to get at least 2 new rides in the future. If ride count did matter, DLR would have higher attendance than MK and DHS. But it doesn't.

    Exactly, ride count doesn't matter. Quality over quantity. I'd much rather a good dark ride with close to 2,000/hr capacity than a bunch of flats that have horrible capacity.

    No, post-SWL is currently a Fantasyland redo/expansion at the moment. Tomorrowland will likely be renovated at this point in the late 2020s.

    I think Tomorrowland will be 2026 at the earliest.

    Screamin will most likely close in January for a July open as the Dash coaster.

    Thank god. I could handle Space Mountain being down but not both. I still have Magic Mountain for my coaster fix.

    I'm fine with that as well, one thing about a ferris wheel is that one side is viewable at a time.

    After seeing some video from the riverboat on the SW land, I wonder how they mix that into the scenery from that area.

    Could we finally see a Monsters Inc Door Coaster concept for the dark ride? Is there plans for a new Moster's Movie?

    If they really change this into Pixar Pier, they better bring Monster's Inc and Toy Story Land into the park. That's the only thing that would make this transformation slightly worth it

    Monster's Inc and Toy Story are already in DCA, and that Toy Story is already right next to what is happening; with Midway Mania.
