If they close this attraction - they mind as well close "the park"!!

My family will boycott! It could use some updates again though.

I would be so angry. It is a boring ride but a classic. It is what the studios is all about!!

I would not like to see it go but I think it is in desperate need of a facelift.

I wonder if Disney comes down on CM's who "leak" out info like that - whether it's true or not.

I'm really surprised that they don't get in trouble for that.

They need to add attractions to this park - not take away and not even replace - just add!

Why would you put Ivy in the title if it's never going to come up again?

Although there is no basis for my opinion, I do have to say that I sincerly DOUBT that they would tear down/close GMR. It is a staple of Disney, or at least MGM and it would be a shame and a mistake to get rid of it.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo..........
Not my favorite ride! They can't do that surely? What's MGM without the GMR? Not a lot, really. Saying that though, it is my favourite park

Honestly, CM's aren't usually involved in hearing about stuff very early on to begin with. Unless you're friends with WDI people you would never hear anything until its about to open

This rumor has been circulating for at least 7 years now. It's my sister's favorite ride in all of WDW, so we've been really hyper aware of any news on the subject. So far it seems like there is talking of updating it some day and not completely tearing it down.

I had heard the rumor on another Disney podcast that I listen a few months ago that the Great Movie Ride was going to be going under a major renovation.

I think they had mentioned getting things like the first Busby Berkley scene fully operational again, getting rid of the Alien scene, adding in a Lord of the Rings scene, etc. Maybe updating the Indy scene to reflect the new movie. In short giving it a thorough overhaul. That was a rumor though.

It could use a major update!

Dd rode it for the first time this trip, when it was done she asked if that was all. She wasnt impressed!

TGMR definitely needs a major overhaul. It's my fave at the Studios too but it's old and tired - like me.

GMR needs a new script - BADLY! It's been the same for as long as I can remember.

"Ready when you are CB."
"It's the perfect job for me because I love the movies."
"And here we have one of my favorite tough guys, James Cagney."
"At least it can't get any woise. It's woise."
