Wreck-it Ralph Attraction

While this is a great idea..... and I don't want to burst anyone's bubble. Do you realize how much it would cost Disney to license all those franchises and characters for use in the parks "forever". It would cost millions if not billions in licensing fees to companies like Nintendo, Sega, Wonka Chocolates etc..... and while it would be a great thing for everyone that loved the movie, I just don't see the financial sense in it and unfortunately that's the first question a Disney executive is going to ask when presented with an idea.... "How Much will it cost?"

Maybe...maybe not. A lot of factors would come into play including the exact role that specific characters would pay and the inherent benefit to having one's IP displayed (promoted) for years to come in a Disney theme park. Disney could also offer retail space as part of any deal.

The Wreck It Ralph photo area at Hollywood Studios is themed to Game Central Station and there's a scrolling marquee which references dozens of video games & characters. Apparently there weren't any sticky licensing issues which prevented that from happening.

The core Wreck it Ralph characters are all owned by Disney. The others are just window dressing. If some companies' demands are too high for the likes of Sonic, Pac Man or Q-Bert, those characters can be selectively excluded.

They should make a WitR ride that uses technology like Star Tours.
