Hi, Now dont get me wrong, this ride is my favourite, but recently rumours have been flying that it will be closed to be replaced with a villians ride. First of all, if Disney doesnt renew the contract with MGM, then it will just be disney studios. Now, forgive me if im wrong, but the films featured in the ride arent all made by disney, so by contract they may have to get rid of them. Also, infront of the Great Movie ride, was a lovely symmmetrical view of the building, with the Mickey bush in the middle. But now they have gone and built that big hat in front, and it doesnt look like it gonna go anywhere. So, this would be ideal to block off construction work. This is just my opinion, i really do, hope that I am totally wrong. I have written a letter telling them how much the ride is loved by disney guests.
