Going to BC and GF with one week's planning
The snappers go for you and the painteds pee on you. Either way, they never seemed very grateful!

I was just thinking about this, mainly because I was thinking how we'd probably have to skip it this year with 2 little ones. Alien is too much for them, which is a shame because I think the rest of the ride would be OK. Honestly, I've never cared for the Alien scene anyway.

That led me to "what else is wrong with this ride" First - the sound system. I think it's been 10 years since I actually heard the dialouge from either the guide or the mobster/cowboy. Also, I really don't like the gangster bit. I don't know if it's the people who just don't react anymore or the CMs, but no one cares when they "hijack" the cars. I think I remember hearing that they toned everything down after 9-11, but not sure if that's still ongoing or that's the issue. It's hokey and not a good hokey.

The line definitely needs to be re-vamped. With the techonology available now, it could be amazing. At the very least they need to lengthen the preshow movie. I've been in there on some busy days and watched the same thing 3 times. It should be long enough so you don't see a repeat while you're waiting.

I love the Forest Gump idea. I don't know if Disney could add that, but that could be a great scene with current technology. Of course keep the Wizard of Oz. I think the biggest problem would be for Disney to get the rights to create some new scenes. The reason we have the ones in there was because either Disney owned the rights or MGM owned them. With the dissolution of the Disney-MGM partnership, Disney would be pretty limited in what they could put in without some big purchases and negotiations and we know how much Disney wants to do THAT.
