    Some of the lights not working in the concrete in the Epcot pavilion. Minor I know, but I have tried to replicate those lights in homemade picture frames...yeah, that didn't work. (Really wish Disney would come out with a light/shadow box with this effect that a person like myself could buy...that would be so cool.)

    The half yard beer glass at the UK pavilion. I miss that.

    This thread is killing me because I can't recall everything that is being pointed out and of course I want to see it now! I'm not going back until November! All of the little things are intriguing though, just enough to make us annoyed but not mad!

    The Apple Pie smell in Mickey's Philharmagic has not worked the past few times I visited the attraction.

    Well, a few minutes ago I took AndyS2992's advice and wrote Disney World about the missing Roman Chariot in Spaceship Earth, and while I was at it, mentioned the blank TV screen where they used to have footage of the moon landing. I plan on keeping you'll posted if anything happens. Maybe we can change the World! (Walt Disney World, that is.) This thread has been fun, and I found myself relating to my fellow forum posters more than I had in any other thread. Thanks to Retroman40 for starting this thread. My biggest fear is that they treat this as a creative suggestion instead of a complaint and refuse to look at my e-mail. That's happened to me before.

    The Roman Chariot was turned off on purpose. I doubt fan complaints will change WDI's mind. Otherwise we would actually have a descent by now.

    I would honestly only want the chariot back if it was significantly improved. The original effect looked terrible, it very much looked like an 80s projection effect. Try to see it outside the lens of nostalgia.

    Im waiting in line for Kilomanjaro Safari right now and noticed a sign that said "Come meet big red and little red." This is obviously a reference to the elephants that were featured in the finale of the ride. I wonder why they were taken out.

    Mostly because it felt sort of tacked on.

    Gotta add in here that this was one of my favorite effects. Don't know why - it wasn't about the quality of the effect, which was just a cheesy animation. But it fit the scene so well.

    Big red was taken out since it was deemed disturbing, though I think they took that out after the soft opening. As for well everything else, little red, poachers, broken bridge, story, I think they just gave most people what they wanted that being the animals and taking out the parts that required more maintenance, AAs and show effects.

    Something that bothers me when they don't work is the Laughing Place water effects in Splash, seems like every other time they are working correctly and other times the turtles are just still

    The last time I was on Pirates, the mist effect behind the pirate ship was not operating. Has this been repaired?

    No, that would not work with the timeline as that was a few scenes earlier and Cinema had yet to be invented when that happened. The newspaper explicitly says "Owens wins gold".
