Disney artist and theme park designer John Ramirez has a great love of Studio Ghibli, which led him to create this design for a Totoro ride.

So it isn’t official…but it’s close.

Speaking to Kotaku, Ramirez said he’s talked to Hayao Miyazaki a number of times about the possibility of Disney building this ride. Each time he has been turned down, but he promises that he will keep asking “until they bar me from the studio or until he says yes!”.

Here’s hoping! Take a closer look at the ride below (click to enlarge).
