    For some reason, 90210 in the Stitch revamp sounds like Jesse Eisenberg. IDK why. He just does. It sounds like Bing Bong trying to do a Jesse Eisenberg imitation.

    That's because that's Bing Bongs voice actor!

    Yes I know that. ... Has anyone transcribed the 1994 pre-show with TOM 2000, and the current pre-show with 90210 yet?

    Since Disney owns Marvel maybe Disney could revive Alien Encounter, but theming it to Guardians of the Galaxy.

    S.I.R could be there, but what would his role be in the gotg version?

    But I meant his connection to the Guardians of the Galaxy.

    He could be just another obscure item kept by The Collector. He got loose after the Infinity Stone explosion. :)

    No, S.I.R. should actually have a role because HE'S FRIGGIN' TIM CURRY. He can be their helper or something?

    Ok ok, how's this: They bring in The Shadow to help the GOTG, and S.I.R. comes along as Farley Claymore, the evil scientist, whom The Shadow convinced to upload his brain into S.I.R., in exchange for not killing him. Since Tim Curry played Farley Claymore in The Shadow movie, it's perfect.

    NO! He won't have the same voice! And Skippy! They're just X-S leftovers because GOTG took over the X-S base.

    I remember going on this ride when I was really, really young close to it's closing date, and being HORRIFIED. Now though? I would LOVE to experience the terror, honestly. I think the attraction was for a type of guest that didn't really exist during the ride's heyday but was ushered in with thrill rides like The Mummy and Tower of Terror. If it opened around 2012-2014 in DHS it would have made the BIGGEST splash. In MK, parents expect every ride to be at least somewhat child friendly. It was the wrong place & time. Sad!

    Welcome to the forums Tori! Yeah, the original ride was pretty scary for some people. The action and effects were mostly psychological...footsteps stomping around, hot breath on the back of your neck, "monster-drool" sprayed in your face....etc. But it was very convincing for those with good imagination, and kids happen to usually have overactive imagination...lol.

    Yeah, I totally remember all that! It was so terrifying the whole experience was like SEARED into my brain, hahaha! But totally, kids clearly just buy into all that. I'm a semi-adult and The Haunted Mansion still gets me! Damn those jump scares. But wouldn't you be STOKED about an Alien Encounter type ride in DHS? Even something more dark-ride like with a vehicle? Ugh, my mind's buzzing. And thanks for the welcome! :)

    I would TOTALLY be down for something like that! Something I always thought would be cool to see was a roller coaster ride through tunnels to that spooky cave with the Pirate Ship in The Goonies movie, with the skeletons and everything. :)
