What Issues?  Looking at Emerge Film Solutions, there's nothing listed about red tape/security problems except for no filming at oil facilities.  End of Discussion!!

One of my dream starts, if for the race to start IN Disneyland (Main Street, right in front of castle). The teams would reach their bags, only to discover they have to ride "It's a Small World" to discover their first destination. The red/yellow route marker would be hidden somewhere on the ride, relating to the country they are soon to visit (ex. on the gondola scene for Italy or on the kids in tulips for the Netherlands). Once they complete the ride, they would then guess their location to Phil, by handing him the correct mini country flag (there would be a large stand filled with various small flags). If they guess correctly, they will get a ticket for one of 2 or 3 flights. They do not have to re-ride the ride if they give a wrong answer, but they are more than welcome to ride it as much as they need.

The options for places to go from there are quite high. Most locations in "It's a Small World" are European destinations, however, there are several American and Asian countries to choose from as well.

Disneyland start is not a bad idea :) , but it's never gonna happen, because there are a lot of people in there, which will make the cast of that TAR season easier to stalk, especially at the start. :funny:
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!

Disneyland opens at 8 at the earliest, usually later in off seasons

There is the potential of just blocking off the area around the ride (literally in the back of the park) in case racers take longer than expected

Abd finally, there are many 'cast member' exits, so they can leave virtually undetected by crowds

That could work so well! the task they get in dinseyland could direct them to another disneyland in other places? (eg. find disneyland in europe which is Paris.) or something

This would be fun. And since Disney "owns" a piece of TAR...you never know!

Casting wishes:
I love it when TAR casts normal, everyday-looking people onto the race. These people like you and I may never get a chance to even go out of state let alone country so I want some dynamic duos like them to strive to win. Not interested in seeing successful musicians and wealthy Real Housewive-Kim Kardashian-style cable crap models who end up prissy, annoying, or having zero personality on the race (excluding Dustin & Kandice since they had huge personalities towards racers in TAR10 & A-S).

M/F teams:
Stepmom/Stepson- (40 & 20-ish yrs. old) From a stepson's tragedy in his infanthood, the stepmom had to take care of the young child and fill him in on what happened. The two must be polar opposite personalities from each other and have a great bond between each other despite sometimes disagreeing.

Married Teachers- (35 & 30-ish yrs. old) I think married teachers would work well together if they both taught different subjects such as the male is a history teacher/sports coach and the female is a geography teacher at a different school. They would bring mental knowledge and physical skills to the table in order to win the race.

M/M team:
Single Dads- (40 & 35-ish yrs. old) We've seen single moms like the Lyns from TAR10, but how about casting single FATHERS? They must be a little out of shape to get with the program, and love their kids like Bopper & Mark to have that drive to compete. This would be a team people would love to root for.

F/F teams:
Mother/Daughter- (50 & 20-ish yrs. old) An overprotective mother and wanting to be free daughter would make a perfect team for TAR. The mom must be too organized and efficient that they force each other to wear beach towels around their pants to prepare for any water task :lol: and wear layers of sweaters in hot climates in case it surprisingly turns chilly all of a sudden. :funny: While the daughter tries to nake herself freer, the mom must deal with issues only she can resolve like being a backpack hoarder, packing 10 lbs. of clothes, first aid, flashlights, and other teams' mocking of them.

Grandmothers- (70-ish yrs. old) I still want another Gutsy Grannies team with much experience in sitting at the couch being big fans of TAR! :hoot: Of course, they'll need a personality in loving to try new stuff, even daring.
