Meet and greets had a lot to do with the safety of the characters. It is a controlled environment.I remember the characters would walk around the park and interact with the kids, my boys loved it. I guess Disney saw another way to make a dollar and started character meals at various restaurants. IMO over charge for so so food. Thanks for jogging my memory I remember watching the ducks on the lawn too.
Sad state of society when people attack Disney characters. Back in the 80's early 90's when my boys were young don't ever remember anthing like this being a concern. So sadMeet and greets had a lot to do with the safety of the characters. It is a controlled environment.
Original Innoventions. Alec Tronic (Timekeeper's cousin removed?), Sum of All Thrills?, Bill Nye had a thing set up, Apple, and of course saving the best for last, Sega's huge exhibit with Sonic, all the consoles, and yeah Knuckles was featured too. (& KNUCKLES)
The Skyway. One, a fun break and great views of the park. Two, when the park was really crowded, an easy way to get from one end to the other. Especially with a family, you didn't have to hold hands and drag your crew through the crowd.Which attraction should NOT have been replaced?

A related thread - possibly already here - is what attraction is still there that should NOT have been allowed to descend into horribleness? The answer there is the Jungle Cruise. Should have been revamped/updated decades ago. It can still be fun, and charming, but as an attraction it's 30 years past needing a massive makeover.
I haven't seen the Disneyland version but I read it's terrible compared to the WDW version.
Is Tiki gone??? Did I miss something?I'll have to say...I think most are upset about the attraction changes for nostalgic reasons...but most of the changes I can think of were needed as far as a business standpoint...the majority of them that I know of had virtually no lines when they were replaced...I remember being one of very few people in the tiki room at the end...I also remember hopping on directly on WOM and horizons...with no line at all...the only ride that puzzles me is Mr. Toad...I seem to remember there always being a line...the only reason I can come up with is that due to pooh's popularity they wanted to add a pooh attraction, but one of the fantasy land rides would have to go...so since the majority of your average disney visitor has no idea who Mr. Toad is....I can't comment on alien encounter...I'm not sure how those lines were the past couple of years, but from what I have seen in other postersd comments...I would say it is the same case there.

Oh I remember that. It was horrendous. So grating on the news in comparison with the very soothing original. Phew. I was scared the classic was gone for good. We’ve somehow missed it on our last few trips. Seems like it was down/closed a few times. I love it!!!!I suspect the comment refers to when Tiki left the first time and was replaced by "Under New Management". It didn't receive the same vitriol because this was when the Internet was not so prominent. A lot of fans did not enjoy it, though.
