~Well, I agree with you. Beer Dave was the first poster to actually describe what the ride was like before B Mode Betty. I didn't know the entire coaster slowed down under the Yeti, it sounds amazing. So, I understand where the disappointment stems from.

~When I was a teen still at home, our family went to Disney in 1998 for the grand opening of Disney's Animal Kingdom. I was there the first year, when the park was brand new and there was no Mount Everest or Kali River Rapids.

~But, I have fond memories of the Kilimanjaro Safari. I loved the bridge that rocked back & forth and was taken by surprise with the story line of helping to save baby Jambo from the poachers. I loved that story, but it's gone now. The bridge which also used to be a feature, is entirely hit or miss. Also, riding in front of the monorail and collecting cards was popular and finding the paint brush on Tom Sawyers island, etc.

~Unfortunately, that's just part of life. We have to find new things to appreciate as the world around us continues to evolve. Disney still holds more magic than the other vacation options we've experienced.

~Frankly, the problem is that our society has never quite caught up to Disney's high standards and as a result Disney has plenty of wiggle room to be complacent regarding certain aspects of the theme parks.
