    It would normally not bother me, but having recently read Disney After Dark to my DD, those dolls creep me out as well. No more IASW for me unless I can bring high precision weaponry.:rotfl2::rotfl2:

    On the family nagging point. Send it again!:thumbsup2

    What a great idea!!!!!

    Combine the Shooting Gallery with IASW....BRILLIANT!!!!!

    (Though maybe not as good a match as Starbucks and the MSB.)

    You INSPIRED me. ;)



    It's a world of laughter
    A world of grief.
    It's a world of bugging my Uncle Keith.

    It's so easy to nag you,
    So much it may gag you,
    I'll sing this ALL DAY LONG...

    It's a boat ride, much too long.
    Makes you weak, even if you're strong.
    Sears your brain with repeating song.
    That will last your WHOLE LIFE LONG!

    I haven't read those books because I have automatonophobia and I know they'd freak me out even more, but I have played Epic Mickey and that definitely creeped me out!:scared1:

    To clarify he hasn't been to Disney in over 30 years

    He's saying he won't go prob cause everyone tells him they hate the ride so he might think its crap

    my husband and bil won't ride this ride. They stand outside or go get fast passes while we're on it. My husband went on it once when he was 13 and that was enough for him.

    I don't blame him, not at all

    I don't blame him, it's his call

    I don't blame him, after all...

    It's a long, long ride.


    It's a long ride on a boat,
    It's a long ride, there's a goat.
    It's a long ride where you float,
    It's a long, long ride...

    It's actualy my husband's favorite ride!
    I would never have tought, but he did it twice in a row when in DLP.

    We can't wait to bring the kids. My only concern is my DD4 bladder. She has to pee, like, every half hours! I'm gonna make sure she pees before the ride.

    Cause it's one heck of a long ride!

    I didn't read the whole thread so maybe this has been mentioned, but in the Unofficial Guide to WDW some years ago a WDW visitor commented that those riding this attraction should be provided with a basket of softballs to throw at the dolls. FWIW, I don't ride this anymore when the grandkids are with us at WDW.

    Last summer I read about Mary Blair who is credited with much of the art design portion of the ride. Here is a link describing her contributions. She is also credited with part of the Gran Fiesta Tour in Mexico at Epcot, along with the amazing, gigantic mural in the Contemporary. Her art design is also seen in the movies Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

    I rode IASW many times last summer just to take a fresh look at the art. I had a great time. As for Ridley Pearsons book, that made the ride even more interesting for me. Because of his book, I started looking for the suns in each "room".

    Also to keep us on our toes, we had a contest to see who could identify any non-working pieces. And to see if we could identify all the countries. The ride is nice and cool in the hot summer, and the line moves quickly.

    Finally, I like to read all the ways to say goodbye at the end of the ride.

    I don't care if each doll is hand-painted by Picasso and each room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.....IASW is still brutal. I'd rather stand in a line that goes nowhere than actually board the boat. :wave2:

    I rode it once because Mrs. Tex said that I had to. All I can say is that it's a good thing I love my wife, because I'd want revenge against anybody else who did that to me.

    All you'd need to do to turn the ride into a blockbuster horror movie is to play the music just slightly out of tune, and play slow motion closeups of some of the animatronics. :scared:
