    As cranky as ever, I see. I meant the re-hashing of OLD, OLD, OLD complaints. Not a one-off comment.

    It came up...its over...

    Every time it's complained about by someone who obviously has free time...it actually just extends the tangent.

    Never say never. Can't recall for sure, but aren't the Friendship boats non-air conditioned? I know the windows open up to get some airflow, but I recall those typically being nice and toasty mid-summer...

    They were nice and toasty in mid December. Even if it's cool outside, if it's sunny they will heat up. I walked everywhere the rest of the trip after one ride.

    I've been wondering about this as an option for the gondolas though. They have these little vent units you hang over your car window that blows outside air in and pulls hot air out. Supposedly it works even better than putting those shades over your windshield. I could see something like that being installed and keeping them bearable. But I really hope they decide to go full A/C.

    Actually, they have several small AC units on the roof, but wholly inadequate. I don't know whether they even work anymore. The windows used to open, but they sealed them.

    I think LoL is referring to the villains extra add on they tried at the Halloween party a couple years ago.

    I'll on occasion (mistakenly) get on one and regret it from cast off...they're only useful in perfect, temperate weather...which happens about 6 days a year in central Florida

    I guess I know what people mean by "Old Hollywood". But, are we forgetting that Mickey Mouse falls within the "Old Hollywood" umbrella? In addition to that, the current representation of Mickey is very close to the 1930s version of Mickey Mouse. So, it fits the theme/time period as well. Of course, the Great Movie Ride is a classic; BUT, it's an outdated classic that is not very popular and I'm very very excited to see Mickey in his own attraction (FINALLY!)!

    I noticed both these things as well. Specifically the complete avoidance of calling it Future world....

    All that means is they are completely abandoning the original theme of Epcot...which is ok cause the kids think it is boring anyway...

    No biggie
