VotLM and BatB: the 25-minnute spectacular are hardly irreplaceable classics as you seem to be describing.
Yes, Jason Surrell's painfully obvious Sixth Sense reference definitely hurt the ride.
The current script for GMR is awful.I won't disagree that Sixth Sense is a poor choice, but you cheery-picked.
Alien and Indy were both modern classics at the time the ride was conceptualized and built, yet made the final cut for the ride, which is my point. Just because a movie is new doesn't make it any less of a classic.
Not sure why he keeps arguing against the fact that these shows need to be updated or replaced. It isn't because it's "what I want" or that I've seen them a million times, but you update or change your stage shows. You don't have the same ones running for nearly 30 years. Entertainment should be updated and changed.
I really don't think the issue here is what is replacing it ala DCA Tower of Terror. It's more that there is better thematic real estate in the park and they need all the attractions they can get once SWL opens.The Hunchback show was probably one of the most underrated shows at WDW. While I understand the love many have for the GMR and I respect that because I think old movies are much better done than current ones, I could certainly understand the removal and change to a new attraction that may better fit the direction the park is going. Im not jumping for joy over the change, but, Im not putt off by it either. Im cautiously optimistic they are doing something that will make the park better for all.
Patience.I really wish we knew more official information on Mickey.
This starts construction in a couple months and we still don't really have even a whisper from official sources - it doesn't give the impression of this being a major attraction they're proud of. After all, we know quite a bit of official info about SWL, which is opening at the same time. The word "afterthought" hangs worryingly in the air...
