I'm really excited for the mine train ride! I was just in Disney last week and the construction looks awesome. You're gonna love the Be Our Guest restaurant. The food is fantastic! And the the inside is stunning!

Completely understandable. Like I said the LM left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.
However I think about it this way. A roller coaster that size will be at least a C and having it enclosed in an actual themed mountain (not a show building) will bump it up to a D.
Now if it is indeed a worthy replacement for the subs or the original Snow White ride that is another matter. LM definitely wasn't up to replacing the Nautilus so the Mine coaster has to make up a lot more than just being a worthy replacement for SW.
While I appreciate the detail and quality they put into the FL renovation it is a lot of wasted space. Who knows, maybe they'll squeeze in a few good attractions in the future?
The last nagging issue is now the old fantasy land feels very cheap. They need to bring it up to the same quality level as the rest. I was hoping the new princess M&G would be the start of it but it needs more than a simple refacing.

mine train

its scheduled for 2014 but a cast member told me that they are ahead of schedule and it might preview at the end of this year. I was also told its going to be a combination of a roller coaster like Big Thunder Mountain and the Indiana Jones ride in Disneyland. Looks pretty awesome!

I wouldn't necessarily believe what cast members tell you. They are certainly not told that information

When they first introduced the idea, I immediately thought it was going to be a lot like Big Thunder. On the tame side, but slower to enjoy the scenes throughout. I'll be there in July, so I won't be able to see it completed in person for quite some time.

Well I see I took a beating from a few apologists but some realists see it straight.

It is just entertainment. It is just a theme park but why not hold this theme park, you know, the one started by the genius to a higher quality than say, Walmart?

If you want to just cheer like you would for you favorite sports team or college team then fine. But if you want to look at things objectively and root for what is best for all fans let me know.

You really think that you are looking at things objectively?

you heard it here first. actually...i feel like I'm in somekind of alternate dimension when i keep saying this - what am i missing?

somebody please tell me why this ride deserves credit beyond the "steel zipper" at your local amusement park?

~What in the world is this?!? EVERYONE is watching the GAME, you know I am watching the game, um you are supposed to be cheering for your home town team!!! Instead of being a team player, you are the only one here stirring up stuff. Just because you abandon us, for an ocean view does not alleviate you from your obligations to the great Maize & Blue! I just can't watch the end!

~Apologist? I don't think so, we're idealist -- and what you express here does not reflect the characteristics of a true realist -- so just don't. And, you didn't take a "beating", those were just love taps -- you know, because I've just got this thing for you. I can't focus right now, but at this rate there will be plenty more opportunities for you to get a beat down!


ETA:

~I wish I was on the ocean, right now!!!
