    Hmm...It was a very nice ride to rest on! They could add some fresh hot buttered popcorn & a nice refreshing cold drink ready to hand us as we come aboard! LOL!
    It hasn't been that long ago that I rode this & I have ridden it more than once. From the last time what I remember the most was that I couldn't understand a word the girl (guide)up front was speaking to us! Bless her heart she coudn't act either! I felt for her! But.. It was great when another girl took her place! Like a breath of fresh air! I like the old movies but I don't remember alot about what they showed on the ride! SO... I asked my husband if he remembered it! He said" I think we got in a buggy thing, & I saw John Wayne on a horse, James Cagney in the Gangster." I said "Is that were the girls changed places!" He said "Yes, somewhere in there." I said "Well didn't they have a scene from the Alien." He said "Well it was in one of them rides! Don't know if it was that one or not!" LOL! LOL! But it was a very nice rest!

    Completely agree. This ride is so outdated. I am nearly 40 and barely recognize the movies. I last rode it 7 trips ago and have no intention of subjecting my children to it.

    My kids call it "The Lame Movie Ride." I tried to tell them that it reminded me of a wax museum and they thought that was the creepiest idea ever. :rotfl:

    Guys, the whole point of the ride, is to showcase movies from the golden age of films. You know, timeless movies also known as the classics. One thing I absolutely would not want to see is anything current from Disney in this ride. There are plenty of commercials throughout the World. We don't need another one.

    I wouldn't change this ride for anything! I've seen a couple of people say that they don't recognize the movies. The ride takes you on a journey from the early movies starting with Footlight Parade ending with the homage to other classic films. I personally love the Golden Age so I may be a bit partial.

    They already have a studio tour on the Backlot Tour.

    I like the idea of making it more family. I like the ride, and we always ride it a couple times per trip. My son likes it too, but the alien part scares him (and I don't love it either... not my kind of movie). That being said, none of the rest of it scares him, but I would love to see it with pollyanna, mary poppins (more than what is there) and some other family classics. Don't remove wizard of oz though, LOVE that!

    That scene is supposed to be frightening! Quite honestly, I sit in the tram and giggle until the actual driver comes back to the tram. :happytv:

    I personally feel the look back at all the old classics is what makes the ride and that whole bank robbery live action scene is so completely unneccesary.

    How About HULK 360-3D, The First Marvel attraction for Walt Disney World.

    based on The Incredible Hulk 2008 film.

    A new Segment for The Great Movie Ride, Where Guests encounter Hulk as he fights the Abomination.

    The technology is similar to King Kong 360-3D, The 3D Screen is all around the dome, The Vehicle moves (and shake), also includes Water Effect and Air Blasters

    The HULK 360-3D segment replace the scary Alien segment.

    During The Great Movie Ride, Cast Member is giving 3D Glasses, exclusively for HULK 360-3D.

    In Addition, Hulk's footstep is seen in Cement Handprint, outside of The Great Movie Ride.

    First, They need to get rid of Marvel at the park rival, Universal's of Adventure.

    I also agree this needs to be updated as well as SOAR'N
    for those of us who go often we have favorites but CHANGE is good.
