5 Disney-Themed Lands That Should Exist at Disney World
Have you ever wondered why some themed lands are missing from Disney World? And by movie-themed lands, we mean the more ‘traditional’ Disney movies – not the likes of Avatar – The World of Pandora and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Sure, Disney World has Toy Story Land, but that’s it! So let’s look at what Disney movies deserve their own lands, and what upcoming projects in other Disney Park Resorts should be a no-brainer for Disney World…
5. Wreck-It Ralph
Wreck-It Ralph isn’t based on a video game as such, but it does feature many real-world ones like Sonic the Hedgehog, Street Fighter and Pac-Man. We also know that video game-inspired themed lands are popular, considering Universal Studios is preparing for Super Nintendo World. Rumor has it there’s a Wreck-It Ralph attraction in the works at Tomorrowland – which is pretty exciting – but what about its own land?
Wreck-It Ralph and its sequel were box office smashes (pun intended), and its lead characters Ralph and Vanellope have quickly become iconic Disney characters. So we think that Ralph’s power cable-based homeworld definitely deserves some time in the sun. Imagine visiting Tappers for a refreshment after hitting Litwak’s Arcade, and then exploring the land via ‘cable’ car, enjoying attractions such as Hero’s Duty and Sugar Rush as you go!
Technically speaking, the House of Mouse has already heard our cries for a Zootopia-themed land, but sadly not at Disney World. What does Shanghai Disneyland have in store for Zootopia (aka Zootropolis)? Well, themed restaurants, stores, attractions and characters are pretty standard, but let’s look at what a Disney World-based land would need to feature, based on the incredibly rich world of the movie.
For starters, it goes without saying that Zootopia could justify its own theme park. After all, the animal-inhabited world is divided into different regions such as Rainforest District, Sahara Square, Savanna Central, Tundratown and Downtown. Imagine a monorail that includes a visit to Little Rodentia, for starters, where guests could ‘shrink’ to the size of rodents! Will Judy Hopps ever make her way over to Disney World? Here’s to hopping – er, we mean hoping!
We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
