thanks butlin boy for your compliment,

now i will show you the little piece i worked on with photoshop
it is not perfest, but i think it will do its work  :)


So we start on hollywood blvd. the gone hollywood facade will be extendet
till to the way where you can walk into toon studios/ pixar land.
then you will see on the right side a new big shop, with a nice
hollywood theme. the shop will sell just pixar related merchandise and some
snaks or sweets.

now we will walk around the big lake where you can see the world of color show.

the big brown patch of land will be a replica of the hollywood hills. when we walk right around the lake you will see at the mountain a little grey pathway, this will lead you into toon studios/ pixar land. the tunnel will look like the entrance to the actual tram tour. a fiew meters ahead you will come to a little theatre place (sorry its not in the pic at the moment, i will work on it). one of the theatres will be the new entrance to the tram tour, also a part of the mountain will be the center of the earth set with some special effects for the tram tour.

now back to tower of terror, there you will see the big brown derby restaurant, opposide the restaurant you will see the viewing area for world of color.

sorry guy´s but the whole thing is not really complete. there are some stuff i will add as soon as i have more time. where the little diner is will be a sunset blvd. building, also on the side where we have moteurs action. the sunset blvd. will be expandet till we are at the new hyperion studios (right now disney channel studio). moteurs action, Rnrc, armageddon and the restaurant de stars/ disney´s blokbuster café will get a complete new layover to fit perfectly into a sunset blvd.

so thats it for now, when i have more i will show you and explain it to you.
till then have fun with my works i did so far....

The Butlin Boy

Your plans are amazing lil-shawn, I would love to see that World of Colour lake/area at the back of the Studios in the future, I really think that it is just what we need :)


Love the ideas lil-shawn! I've always thought a lake would be the best thing for the end of the boulevard. If you think about it, something like the Great Movie Ride would completely block any future expansion due to the huge showbuilding, so some sort of water body is the only option really.

What's interesting is that your plan is somewhat similar to my own little WDS masterplan I'm hiding!


Hey all, good topic, love the idea of incredables 4D as well mater. everyone feel free to give me some crits.
Would devide the areas into world of cinema and TV, backlot, toon studios, hall of music, toy story playland and pixar place.

- a french animated film came out around 2004 ish called triplets of belville add that as a ride

Hey folks, after i was giving you my idea for the expansion of Hollywood blvd.
i will give you know the first new Land i had in mind for the Studios.
It is located behind Moteurs Action and RnRC!


Welcome to Sci-Fi City or Studios!!

In this Land all the Sci-Fi movies will come true, incedible attraction, shops and
restaurants, all in an Futuristic environment..
Here peoples of all ages will have fun and can dream of the Future!
Concept arts are from the Sci-Fi City they wanted to build at TDL, i choose them
because of the look of the environment, i was thinking this would be perfect!

Star Tours II...
Bhind RnRc will be the new Star Tours II, the outside will be perfectly Themed
that it fit the new Attraction and the environment of the Land.

Star Trader Shop...
This shop is on the Building of Star Tours II, it will only sell star tours relatet items!

The Galaxy Restaurant...
This Table Service Restaurant, is on the back of the land, it will put you into the Galaxy.
All cast members here are costumed like Space travelers, the food is galactic and look
like fom outer space!
From the inside the restaurant looks like a Spaceship with a huge Roof window,
where you can see planets and stars!

Sci-Fi Dine In...
The Sci-fi Dine in is a copy of the one at Hollywood Studios....

Tron Legacy MotoCoaster...
The Tron Legacy MotoCoaster will be part Darkride and part outside Coaster, it will be
a unique Attraction to WDS!
The queline will be a interactive one, where you can play little Games as long as you
have to wait for the Ride. The vehicles of the coaster are themed like the motorbikes of Tron.
At the Darkride Part you are in the Game. At the end of the Darkride you will get Shoot out of the building and the Game and you get into a wild Race.
Think of the Dueling Dragons at Universal Studios, just with another coaster!

The People Mover...
its like the one we have at the Magic Kingsom in Orlando, it will move you through the
whole land...

Galaxy Store...
It´s the biggest Store of the land, Themed to a Spaceport!!

Alien Encounter 2.0...
Disney World Take it out and WDS bring it in. But this time the seats and the whole Floor will move too, to get the best experience of this Attraction!

Stitch Live...
I put Stitch in this land because i think it fits perfect and because of my idea to demolish
studio 2 and the disney chanel bulding to make room for the remake of the  hyperion Studios.

thats it, befor i forget it, there will be room for extansion! also i will try to make a good,
photoshop work. so you guys can see where everything will be! hope you all like the idea of
it and turn back for more.

the next will be the change of front lot and production courtyard.

The Butlin Boy

I love your ideas there lil-shawn, I think that an area like that would fit in perfectly in the Studios, and especially where you've put it too. :)

I'm really impressed with your idea to put the people mover in there, I'd have never even thought of that, yet it'd fit in so, so well.  =D>

Most of all, I'd be one of the happiest people around if I could go on that Tron ride, it'd be epic! It's such a sound idea, and even if you want to think about it more realistically (e.g. DLP cost cutting :roll: ), you wouldn't even necessarily need to make it a dueling coaster, just have each side a differeant colour to the other. Although it'd be better as a dueling coaster as it'd make it stand out from Space Mountain and RnRC, and make it more re-rideable. Perhaps, they could have a tamer and a more extreme one, so that we have another nig coaster, and one for the family (BTM + RnRC + Tron!) 8)

Well done, and thanks for sharing it :mrgreen:


Thanks Butlin Boy for you compliment, am happy someone like the idea.
I think too, that the land would fit perfectly into the Studios, as i said in my previous posts,
they should make it a park, who presents the Movies with Attractions not making the Park like a working Studio, cause this wont work...

with my next Presentations i have for you guy´s i will turn the Studios into a real Dinsey Park, with Story, Theme, Landscaping and great Attractions..
After Sci-fi City/Studios are build it is time to change the Backlot Area.


Welcome to Sunset Blvd...

The Butlin Boy

Quote from: "lil-shawn"... hope you liked my ideas so far...

Have I ever! First off, I love the ideas for Sunset Blvd, Buena Vista Street and the Hyperion Studios. I think that they're perfect; as if they were taken straight out of a true Disney park. And I never thought that I'd like anything that you've suggested for the Pixar Studios, but I do. I think that the Finding Nemo area (especially the backdrop of Australia idea) is actually very good =D>

Thanks so far lil-shawn, and I hope we can see more of your stuff soon :)


@ lil-shawn; what about an UP attraction in the Pixar-area? It will be a world première and something like Crush's Coaster (an indoor coaster which is good for the whole family, but still sort of a thrill ride). There will be an exact replica of the house from the movie, with a big rock-structure behind it to hide the building. First you'll walk through the house itself (to get to know Carl, and his wife, a little better) and through the back-door you'll enter the world where Carl and Russell end with the house. In this section waterfalls will flow and you hear weird sounds of the jungle (from the 'Snipe'?), all beautifull themed (really Disney-ish  :D)!

I'll make same concepts or something to show you guys!  :wink:

An Up attractions would be cool, but another coaster i don´t know, i was thinking more of a dark ride like peter pan or something like this!

I was working the whole day on this Action Studios Project, and right now i like it very much an think this will
give you a nice fiew of how i was thinking it could look like...

here ya go!! //http://www.LupiUpload.de/file.php/file/pIr6sG4m79

1: Prince of Persia Stuntshow Spectacular...
    Here you will see stunts from some key scenes of the movie! it will be a 25min show, with a big bang finale!

2: Sands of Time Restaurant...
    An restaurant themed to the prince of persia movie, also the meal has an Arabic touch! The restaurant is
    inside the attraction building, lets say like Blue Lagoon!

3: Prince of Persia Adventures...
    This will be one of the big E-ticket Attractions of the Action Studios. It´s a boat ride, with 3 drops, 2 forward and
    1 is backward. This attraction will tell the story of Prince of Persia Movie, but not just the first, it will tell the    
    Story of a Trilogy!

4: Prince of Persia Coaster...
    don´t know how to theme it, i never played this game  :oops: . But this coaster will be outside and it will have the
    douple size of Indian Jones!

5: Prince of Persia Kids Playground...
    This area is just for the small ones. It will have a playground like the one we have in Adventureland and it will
    have an movie based themed Carusell for the kids!

6: The Sorcerer's Apprentice Magic Show...
    It will be the firs show ever in disney history with an illusionist. This show will also have a lot of Special effects.

7: The Godfather´s Gift Shop...
    I know this is not a disney movie, but i don´t know how to name it so i came up with this idea  :) . This shop is
    the biggest one in the New York Streets.

8: National Treasure Coaster...
    This coaster will be like the revenge of the mummy from universal studios. The coaster itself will be very fast and
    goes Forward and backwards, with twists and turns.  the story is not from the movie, it will be a story conected  
    to Lord Henry Mystic (Mystic Manor Attraction HKDL) and Harrison Hightower III (tower of Terror TDS). The new
    VIP will be also in the S.E.A. Club //http://blueskydisney.blogspot.com/2009/09/hidden-sea.html.


9: New York Streets Restaurant...
    A Themed Resaturant, it will match to its surounding. All themed to a ney york where a lot of Gangsters are here!

10:Trick Tracys Crime Stopper...
     This will be the  3rd E-ticket in Action Studios/new york Streets. The ride System will be special, first it will be
     an EMV + Laser guns. Here you are on the jurney with cops to stop the crime at the new york Streets!

11:Studio Tram Tour...
     Yeah The Tram Tour will be still here but 1000times batter than now. first we go under the bridge to catastrophe  
     Cannyon. on this way we will have some props related to any disney movie. After we passed the cannyon, we go
     to another set themed to Prince of Persia. The vehicle will be on a special track, this track will move to the side
     downwards. After this set, we will past another props and will stop at the new york gangster set. Here you will
     see a Car chase and a gunfight between cops and gangsters. The tram goes ahead through the first tunnel, here
     you will have an inside fiew of the attraction, and then we will pass another tunnel where you also can see inside
     the attraction. The Jurney is over and we are back on the Station.

12:New York Streets amphitheater...
     Here we will see different shows throughout the year, Halloween, Cristmas ect...

So thats it for now, hoping that everyone understand it and like it as much as i do.


Great ideas!
I love the finding nemo land idea maybe crushes coaster could be part of it and a gift shop just for finding nemo.
I only hope that we don\'t lose sight of one thing,that it was all started by a mouse[size=150] Walt Disney
