    The Tron door is a good theory, but I think that is the door the writers were referring to as the glass elevator in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The confirmed that one of the doors is that.

    Besides FairyTale land and Oz, what other lands are there? Abigail referred to her father’s kingdom as a realm but that was still within FT land.

    Abigail’s father’s realm was just another nearby kingdom not another realm as in another world.

    Fun thought:
    I believe a “Realm Jumper” may refer to Jefferson’s trade or ability and maybe, Realm Jumpers all wear hats and each Jumpers’ travels are different thus different doors. It would give an fun twist to the old phrase, “keep this secret under your hat.” Perhaps, hat sizes also indicate their ability/rank. Not every door will appear in every Jumper’s hat thus the doors in Jefferson’s hat are the one’s he has been to or been granted access to.

    When I first saw the hat used as a portal, I was immediately reminded of the old Krofft show, LIDSVILLE. Except, instead of tumbling directly into the destination, we find a room of doors within the hat much like a train roundhouse or airport concourse with its multiple gates.

    It is quite obvious, the doors are all different so as to suggest they lead to other Realms. I immediately thought, “oh, that door must go to..here….that door to there….,” etc., and I believe we are all correct in thinking this is the case. My initial thoughts, based on the visual clues of the doors were:
    OZ – the “man behind the green curtain” and what looks like the Z in the O indication on the curtain.
    Gothic Realm – one of the heavy stone doors maybe w/ the architectural peak in the door shape
    Nightmares – again, a stone door but a different place than Gothic
    Camelot or Sherwood Forest- the wooden door with stone
    Egyptian Mythos – the door with what looks like hieroglyphs
    Tales of The Orient – the very red door but maybe not all Asian legends under one Realm/Dynasty
    World of Pure Imagination – Wonkavator looking door – it seemed so obvious to me…I love WW. If not that, it’s Virtual Worlds of some sort, like WofW, Second Life, Tron.
    Earth – the Storybrooke or Kansas portal, the “All-American” house door.
    Atlantis or Faery Realm – the blue door.
    Asgard, Valhalla – maybe one of the stone doors

    …and I had to wonder if some doors may lead to Realms in reference to: Sanskrit, Arabian Knights, Native American, and almost every sort of legend and story from every culture, known and unknown to us. I do love the idea we may see cross-over characters who may have dual or multiple identities like, who did Alice become after becoming a Queen in Wonderland or Dorothy, after she was Queen in Oz, the Tin Man, after ruling as Emperor of WinkieLand…and so on. If Time is also able to be altered or bent, we get really bizarre possibilities, like, The Hatter/Jefferson could also be Bae, who is also The Wizard and maybe “the desperate man,” Zoso – and even Henry’s Father; endless twists!

    Wouldn’t they leave some of the door indistinct so could use them for the future for new or different stories. When you see the view from above the area is circular and there seems like a bunch of doors we have no way of knowing where they lead….. I think that is why the doors we know the stories to are all linked and close together.

    Maybe the doors can take you back in time… ;)

    (Ok, It’s a bank holiday here, and it’s cold and raining. I’ll be at this forum a lot, it seems..)

    So, It’s true they have a heavy Disney reference in OUAT, but there’s also a lot of LOST around, like the numbers and products. We’ve also have seen other pop culture references, like rock – ZOSO, from Led Zeppelin, ‘Jefferson’ Airplane and ‘Gracie’ Sleak… – the flower van that reads “Game of Thorns”, etc. Aaand, since the writers have also worked on other shows, like Buffy (you can see a weapon like hers in Rumple’s castle) and Battestar Galatica, Caprica, Fringe, Samllville, Terminator, Dollhouse, Heroes… well, I guess the doors can lead to SO MANY FREAKING places, in SO MANY possible dimentions!!!

    And after reading all the theories here, specially Phee‘s

    what places actually qualify as a whole separate world you’ve gotta travel to via hat? [...]
    If a story has a protagonist that leaves their own world in order for the story to happen, that’d surely qualify as being a whole separate land. Alice went to Wonderland, Dorothy went to Oz, the Darling kids went to Neverland, the Pevensies went to Narnia. [...]

    and cruel_fortuna‘s one, for now, my theory or guesses or… you know… for the Hat Doors:

      1 – ???
      2 – It seems to be smaller than the other doors. My first though was dwarfs, but, hey, they are already in FTL. Maybe, Liliput? =]
      3 – It’s golden or there’s a light coming from it. Maybe Neverland, since it’s a star.
      4 – Looks medieval, but it could have something to do with vampires, maybe? Or Avalon.
      5 – It seem like bricks to me. First thing I though was Harry Potter, hehe…
      6 – The mirror on that doo, maybe it’s the dimension where Genie gets trapped, after his wish.
      7 – I agree it could be FTL. (or Asgard, because of the tree. It looks kinda Nordic to me..)
      8 – I would bet in Atlantis.
      9 – Looks like an iron door. Also remind me of vampires. Or dragons. Or Nightmares.
      10- Maybe those are Mayan or Aztecan designs? (it also reminded me of Indiana Jones 4)
      11- The white thing is smoke? Or spirits?
      12- Definitely oriental - if not Mulan, maybe something to do with Chinese tales.
      13- OZ. No doubt.
      14- Wonderland.
      15- World of Pure Imagination, as Possum Snoodle said.
      16- Also agree it’s SB or at east our time/space. It does look like a regular door to me.

    That’s a good idea! I’ve considered HP being in the show, but I hadn’t thought about the door resembling bricks. That would be SO cool if it leads to Diagon Alley or something :D

    I like the idea of realm jumpers. Emma is probably a realm jumper; which can explain why Henry said that she was the only one that can do it and Jefferson saying she has magic by forcing her to make a hat for him.

    You mentioned the circular room; perhaps the doors they show in the shot when Jefferson and Regina enter that room before going into Wonderland are only just some of the doors. There may just be other doors that are there and we cannot see because they aren’t shown.

    That’s true. There are 20 doors, but we were only able to see 16 of them. :|
