I prefer Tony Baxters philosophy that when we take something out we have to put in something that is bettere which I don't think is the case here.To be honest I'm super excited for this ride because of both the optimism from the Imagineers, and just the innovation it's self.
Anytime a ride closes, I just look at the attraction replacing it for what it is. Once GMR is closed it won't be coming back so we might as well get excited for what's to come.
Thanks for accepting my challenge, your answers were good!I'm answering for fun, not to argue, because I think we're both making good points.

Disney is pulling the sponsorship, not TCM. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if some people at TCM are ****ed off about this.I wonder how much of it has to do with licensing fees for the various non-disney movies. TCM owns a HUGE Library of films.. many of them featured on GMR. With them pulling their sponsorship (which a chunk of may will be licensing rights to the characters and scenes from the films), it may be cost prohibitive for Disney to pay the various owners to continue to use the IP.
The only reason the "mickey room" is currently in it is because the tornado effect they wanted to use didn't fit and didn't work (why the room is a tight turn with a funnel in the middle), so instead of doing an Oz tie in, they just went with fantasia slapped in there.
In "real life," I'm in a closely related industry. I see these boards as a place to discuss ideas, not wage battles. When someone gets insanely argumentative, I click "Ignore" and walk away because I have more to do than fight with strangers.Thanks for accepting my challenge, your answers were good!
Well, it IS high-tech (digital CGI), but just the same I think that the design for that series is actually kinda cute. Although I'm not saying I think it should be the definitive Mickey. My fave version is the classic shoe-button-eye version, which the new shorts make use of.That's not Mickey, that's a robot
WHOOOAAA man!!!! That sounds so cool! I wish I'd seen it!Before May 1989 yes. It was in.
Constantly spinning farmhouse on the rear projection screen. The gobo lighting effects flying around the screen and walls to enhance the effect. The wind machine (behind the grill on the right side of the pathway) running full. And the de de-de de dur de music from the film on endless loop.
We weren't arguing right? If it appeared that I was being rude to you, I'm actually really sorry. Sometimes I come on to strong about certain topics, it was never my intent to be rudeIn "real life," I'm in a closely related industry.

Please don't misread any disagreements as arguments.
Phase 3 died. The Mickey ride and anything else being done is just ad hoc for now. Big plans, like for a 'land', are in blue sky world right now.
I guess no one really saw it since the park didn't open until May...WHOOOAAA man!!!! That sounds so cool! I wish I'd seen it!
You are certainly correct, but the way you do it is to have an "E-ticket" type ride (say, Ratatouille or maybe the Monster's Door Coaster) and then have like 2 small dark rides and a flat ride tossed in. All the attention would be on the major ride and the other ones, which would be useful for capacity and diversity, would be somewhat overlooked and tolerated. Then eventually they'd become "classics" and untouchable.If they put in a ride like Mr. Toad's themed to Monster's Inc or Peter Pan themed to The Incredibles, I can only imagine the outrage over the lack of inovation, low capacity, and doing it on the cheap.
