The rumor is probably a corruption of previous rumors merging with speculation about the issues regarding the image of the Chinese Theater, etc.

Frankly, I think they need CMs who can SELL the script more. They mostly seem to, as they say, "mail it in".

Actually I thought that was the name of the soccer in Fantasia, not Mickey.

When we were there in Oct. 07 DH and I were talking about it. We thought they might "re-do" after the name change to update and include more Disney movies and less of the older movies that MGM owns/owned the rights to.

It's one of our favorite rides even if we can quote the lines before the tour guides does.

What kind of soccer was he? Ball? Goal? Jersey? Sorry, couldn't resist.

PLEAAAAASSSSSSSEEEEEEE NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

This can not be true. I returned from a trip in DEC and some of the ride looks like it needs a rehab, like the Ailen portion of the ride. So, I just hope that they rehab it only or my wife and I will be upset

my favorite part are the video montages. the one while you are waiting in line, and the one at the end. i wish they would have more of that sort of thing throughout the ride.

i agree, but i also think the whole ride is good. like the memories from some of my fave moovies....wizard of oz will always be, for me, a timeless classic. if the ride closed, it would be a grate shame, as i think loads of guests would like it, and it's also good for the families, not to fast. first time i went on it, reminded me of small world for some reason

This is true! Most of the animals do not work overtime... They get to go eat and sleep while the CM's keep the rides, shows, food stands, and shops running. A large portion of AK closes for EMH nights, i.e. all of Africa...

I wish they would do something with this ride. There are some parts that are entertaining but Disney could do better. Update this thing, PLEASE!
