Hi everybody! This is my latest work. It's based on the map of Hong Kong Disneyland, with elements from the parks at Anaheim, Orlando, Tokyo and Paris and also some original ideas.

Static map here [link]

Park highlights:

PARK LAYOUT
This time I choose Hong Kong Disneyland layout because I think its compact structure is very good, cozy and versatile. Also, I think it fits only four lands very weel, there's no need to "kill" any frontierland or square to have just four lands (only the small new lands that this park has). I designed the park to be big, but somehow it still looks compact or easy to walk through.

MAIN STREET
My entrance street is based on the one at Disneyland Paris, with a more elaborate aesthetics, a victorian/art noveau look-and-feel, the hotel in front of it and the presence of two covered arcades: Adventure Arcade, which is themed after the great adventurers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries; and Discovery Arcade, which is themed after the great scientists and inventors from the same time period.

ADVENTURELAND
It's inspired by an "around the world" atmosphere, but with an adventure aesthetic from the first half of the 20th century, being a perfect continuation of Adventure Arcade. Imagine the Middle East, the african savannas, an asian temple and a pirate island being explored by Indiana Jones. A new attraction idea here is "Pride Lands Safari", a safari version of the traditional Jungle Cruise, where the guides are Timon and Pumbaa and the setting are the Pride Lands, including the Pride Rock, savannas, an oasis and the elephants graveyard. "Skull Mountian" is Pirates of the Caribbean meets Splash Mountain, and "Lost Temple River Rapids" is inspired by Kali River Rapids, but more focused on the "cursed asian temple" theme.

FANTASYLAND
Fantasylands highlights here are the transitions that it has to the other two big lands. For Adventureland, the trasition is a Neverland section, featuring pirates and a tropical setting, but introducing the magic element by Disney Faries and Pixie Hollow. For Discoveryland, the trasition is the Little Mermaid section, featuring an undersea fantasy theme, which morphs into the undersea steampunk theme of the 20000 Leagues section. Also speaking about the land, it has a very magical landscaping with rivers, water features, gardens, serene trees, colorful flowers, alpine mountains and storybook architecture.

DISCOVERYLAND
This land has a Science Fiction theme, featuring a mix of steampunk and space fantasy, in a very retro futuristic world. It combines elements from Hong Kong's, Orlando's and Anaheim's Tomorrowlands, Paris' Discoveryland and Tokyo's Port Discovery and Mysterious Island. Remember that the Verne-inspired attractions (From the Earth to the Moon, Journey to the Center of the Earth and 20000 Leagues Under the Sea) happen in this science fantasy/retro futuristc world, not in the 19th century as written by Verne. "Cosmopolis", here as an attraction rather than a sub-land, is a 4D interactive dark ride where guests discover the wonders of a "cosmic Vegas". "From Earth to the Moon" is a Space Mountain-type of attraction, but more inspired by the book with the same title written by Verne.

*sees Hall of Wonders* I guess Wreck-It Ralph could fit in Discoveryland.

Sorry, but I didn't understand the connection between Hall of Wonders and Wreck-it Ralph. I imagine Hall of Wonders as a retro-futuristic Epcot, with steampunk inventions and interactive games based on it.

Discoveryland is about dreams of the future from the past, just like in Paris. I am thinking about removing Buzz Lightyear too, replacing it with a more retro-style interactive shooting dark ride, maybe with robots or aliens.
