    They're reversing the queue entrance for TS Land. It's not more insidious than that, despite what some would like you believe.

    No thats not the case, Mr Potato Head is an integral part of the TSMM queue, There is no dependency between TSL and MPH Disney feels its ok to degrade the queue for years so they can push the reinstallation cost of MPH to another project (TSL)

    But hey they are only tourists they will not know any better.

    The attitude towards the guests shown by actions like this frankly makes me sick.

    None of the above is true. Stop with your lies and misunderstanding.

    There is no misunderstanding. Misrepresentation, yes. Misunderstanding, no.

    Then you move MPH when TSL is done. Only disney could get away with pulling this kind of crap

    Boo hoo truth hurts, Bottom line MPH was not reinstalled because of penny pinching.

    Do you even care that the queue's centerpiece will be missing for 2-4 years? After being stored for a good chunk of a decade will MPH even work any longer

    At one time SHOW actually mattered to WDW, now the only thing that matters is efficiency.

    You have no facts on this. Stop. You don't work for the company and have no truth or facts on why MPH isn't there. And we have been told repeatedly he will come back with TSL. So stop. It's not the truth because you don't know the actual reason. This is why people get on you.

    I think we're missing the most important question in all of this. Who the heck waits standby for TSMM?

    You're being paid by a Disney competitor to post anti-Disney propaganda here.

    My source? Same as yours.

    Wrong. That is not the reason.
    I do care. As does Disney. Which is why it will return in a better location. And the figure will work just fine.

    That queue centerpiece you speak of was only viewable by 20% of guests visiting the attraction in its old location.

    Wrong again.

    Does anyone but Disney install multimillion dollar animatronic figures to entertain a small percentage of their guests while they wait for the main attraction.

    Has Disney ever confirmed that Mr. Potato Head is coming back? Has a well-known insider on this Board?

    Why is it that almost every attraction at WDW that has a single anamtontric is broken, missing, etc?

    -The Yeti on EE
    -MPH in TSMM
    -Gravity Wheel in M:S (not anamotronic but it's a signature part of the attraction)

    Any others that I'm missing? I just find it really pathetic that these rides have only 1 moving thing to take care of, yet even that seems too much work.

    Guys, the best way to deal with @ford91exploder is to ask him to support his opinion with verifiable facts. When he is unable to do so, report him to @wdwmagic and @The Mom so his post can be dealt with as the dishonest trolling that they are.

    I think in a switchback area of the queue is a more valuable location than outside, because it helps make the wait more tolerable.

    Also, it is a fact that not reinstalling Mr. Potato Head in the meantime saves the company money at the expense of quality. How big an issue that is... well, that's your opinion, but there's no denying that Disney could have Mr. Potato Head present right now.

    Six Flags did for their Battle for Metropolis shooting ride.
