I :heart: the ET ride... And made DH ride it repeatedly last month. When I was a teenager, my brothers and I would make up stupid names and give our cards to the attendant in order to make ET say things. Like I would be Eileen and one of them would be Dover.

I still say as I posted a few days ago, I 'm going to let this play out until I formulate an opinion. The sky was falling because the opinion was that the signs were gone forever. They're back. Disney's desire is to enhance the experience. I'm wiling to place my bet on their success rather tHan join the naysayers that speculate that the experience will be ruined.

I was thinking the same thing as soon as I read the article.

I rode IASW on Friday. There are signs again. They're "refreshed" and the English and (iirc) Spanish good-byes are very big postcard-shaped signs that are elevated.
