Doesn't help it's mostly ugly merchandise ... a lot of Everest merch is at the outlets too.
There was an initial rush, like any new thing, but there are few attractions/properties in the park that drive merchandise. A ride's popularity doesn't mean the merchandise for the ride will be popular.

I noticed the railway bed from the people mover. I couldn’t figure out why they removed it unless the track is going to go around something instead of the constant circle it has had.

On a side note my 2yr old son wanted to see train up close so while up there I asked the cast member how long it was going to be down. His answer was it wouldn’t be opening anytime soon and when asked why not go in to shuttle mode he went on about safety after the monorail crash.

I remember that's how it ran during Splash Mountain's construction.

Since the monorail incident, they only operate from the forward-facing cab. So why not rig up a second engine to the other end of the train, like a steam-powered monorail? Probably not quite that simple, but it'd be neat to see.

It’s weird seeing just how small the arcade/gift shop is compared to SM. In front of the ride it looks so much bigger.
It's amazing what controlling guest perspective allows.

For how useless the arcade is nowadays, it's quite an iconic and well-designed part of SM.

As long as you don't approach it from the Fantasyland path 😛
