LOST Island should stay away fom Disneyland

I have to say I’m in agreement with David at Disney-O-Rama that the folks organizing the petition to get Disneyland to turn Tom Sawyer Island into LOST island are barking up the wrong tree.

That’s not to say that I wouldn’t appreciate finding more ABC shows represented in the parks. Just keep it at California Adventure and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In fact, if they wanted to do an ABC Drama weekend the way they used to do Soap Opera weekends, I think that would be a big hit.

Why not a restaurant themed to the latest ABC shows. Decorate individual dining rooms with actual set pieces from the shows, put scripts on the walls, and costumes on the serving staff. Even some cheesy improvised comedy like they used to have at Soap Opera Bistro would be fine.

But converting a kid’s play area into a tropical island for a show that’s mainly for adults, that’s a wrong turn down the LOST highway.

    As a huge LOST fan, I totally agree with you! While the idea of a LOST island is exciting, having it at Disneyland wouldn’t make much sense.

    It’s much more appropriate at California Adventure. There could even be a ride on the island!!! Okay..excitement contained…

    No, just no. Lost has no place in Disneyland. Put a Lost attraction where it belongs, Hollywood Studios. The park really needs to be expanded to be more than a 1/2 day park anyhow.

    I would love LOST-related anything, but not in Disneyland. You nailed it. I remember the day I saw them selling Desperate Housewives shirts at the park and I died a little on the inside.
