My ds and I finally watched the dis unplugged last PM that has been discussed here. At no time did we feel that anyone was "shilling for Disney".So if you were looking for a rant it didn't happen. It was a discussion . Everyone is entitled to their own opinion whether we agree or not. What happened was definitely frightening for the people on the skyliner. Would I have wanted to have been stuck up there no. And yes and thankfully it happened at night instead of mid day in the summer heat and humidity . Our teenage ds was stuck at night on BTRR at night in August in the heat and humidity 2 yrs ago and he's asthmatic . It took close to 45 minutes to walk everyone safely down and off the ride . Was I freaking a bit you bet. But other than being a ball of sweat he was good and safe. And yes he received 3 anytime fp's. I was ready for an adult beverage!!! We all have ridden that ride multiple times since. Could Disney have communicated better with the guests on the gondolas? Definitely. Yes it took sometime to get everyone off the skyliner but it was done safely and sometimes it takes longer than most of us would like and that is frustrating and scary for the people actually on the skyliner. And that is something Disney is going to have to reevaluate along with other issues. I believe that Disney will do what it needs to do to make corrections to the Skyliner for the safety of all of us to ride and enjoy.
