I agree it could use a major facelift, but I hope they don't close it. Maybe with the Studio changes it will get that much need new script.

Disney vs MGM

I love the GMR but have to wonder if Disney would want to continue to promote MGM movies if they are not getting anything from it.

Can you imagine the GMR with all Disney movies? Do not get me wrong, I love Disney movies however they cannot compete in the same category as the best movies of all time, especially musicals IMO.

Slightly Goofy, who spent a large part of NYD watching musicals, old ones!!!

Since the CM's working at the Great Movie Ride just got new costumes, I suspect that's only a rumor.

I agree...it definitely needs some TLC. I'm not a huge fan of the ride, but I do think I'd be a bit sad if they closed it for nostalgic reasons.

I'm always amazed that no matter who the guide is, the clips they show at the end of the ride are always "some of their favorites".

BTW - Did anyone else know that Mickey's name in "Fantasia" was Yensid, which is Disney spelled backwards.

Are you kidding? Most of the Disney movies ARE musicals and well known and some of the best loved movies of all time. Mary Poppins for one.

I think GMR needs a facelift, as does most of MGM. That used to be our favorite park but it has really gone downhill.

Was it Mickey's name? I thought it was the name of the master sorcerer in Fantasia.

Could be. By that time in the ride, I'm usually asleep.

ETA - You are correct. Just looked it up.

That line was especially funny when we went during Jersey Week. I think everyone on the ride except us was from Joisey and they all laughed.

I sure hope they don't close it, but yeah, it could use a little facelift.

I've been on GMR three times. The first time I didn't like it. Went on it a few years later, still thought it was lame. A few years after that tried it again....nah, it needs to be changed into something interesting.

The GMR is the only ride we really like in MGM.

If they took it out, why even go there?

The Great Movie Ride is the best! It's a relaxing ride and I love waiting in the line watching the old movie previews. I really don't believe that they would tear it down.
