I definitely agree. Splash Mountain is just another fantastic example. The average tourist probably isn’t familiar with song of the south, yet Splash Mountain may be their favorite attraction. This concept also proves that not everything has to be tied to an IP, which is the case for the original journey into imagination, and an IP free attraction usually has a better chance of becoming a timeless attraction ( Haunted Mansion, Pirates, Small World, jungle cruise, etc...) because certain IPs become dated after a while, while original attractions stay original, and won’t have to worry about being tied to a dated or somewhat dated IP.Which is the aim of good design. Same for Tower of Terror. Journey into Imagination (original). Etc.
Big difference is Chapek doesn’t consider himself creative. Iger incorrectly has convinced himself he is. When someone knows they are not creative they are more apt to not try micromanage the creative process.It’s funny looking back. Didn’t Eisner day Iger would not succeed because he wasn’t creative enough? Then we go to Chapek who is the opposite of creative. I kind of think we wait for The next CEO to handle Our grand and miraculous spaceship.
I don't think it will open if they have to wipe down every seat after someone sits there. They would have to slow the ride down to do this.Wait....
It they are permanently shelving it, does that mean they will open it whenever Epcot opens?
It is still not available as a July fastpass option.
They are going to have to do that with People Mover, Haunted Mansion, Little Mermaid, The Seas with Nemo. . . . You think they will keep all those closed, too?I don't think it will open if they have to wipe down every seat after someone sits there. They would have to slow the ride down to do this.
Could somebody briefly summarize what the overhaul was going to include? I saw someone mention removal of animatronics and I became very sad. The only animatronic change they need to make is turn around the newspaper boy again.
