I understand that they toyed with using an Omni-Mover system there like they did at SSE. The trouble was that "Please please please, someone come over and ride this thing" wouldn't fit on the wait times board.
    The fact that it is posted as a 10 minute wait might scare away people...who would refuse to wait 10 minutes for Ellen

    I would think 10 minutes would be right on the money for the average wait time. Ellen, Laugh, EO, Muppet's etc. have a holding pen area before the next show begins. So your maximum wait to enter Ellen is likely 10 minutes.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Yea...and that's how the only wait is generated. And I think I may have mis-worded my statement...I meant to say that no one would want to wait 10 minutes (in a line) for Ellen..."who" being the people that were scared away...but I think y'all get the point now.

    I would have likely put a 4 year old on Mission if he fit the age and height requirements Disney cleared for the attraction. I put my ManChild on Body Wars as he just turned 3 years old. At the time of opening Body's Wars only requirement was that they were three. I had to actually show a CM his ticket to Park. Under 3 is free admission. Disney later raised the height requirement.

    Disney seems to wing it when they are picking height requirements. They dropped Splash's requirement by 4"'s from when it opened.

    Disney is on its 3rd height, age and supervision requirement for the Aqua Duck on the Dream and that puppy has only had a few sailings.

    Can't blame the parents for following the Disney requirements for children.

    just think... 10 minutes before it starts... and then 45 agonizing minutes on the attraction... what does that equal...

    alot of wasted time...!

    55 minutes could get a child three or four death-defying trips on Mission:Space Orange.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Charging 2 dining credits for LeCellier or paying fine dining prices cash for a restaurant that has never been a fine dining experience. OK for a one credit, but two just cause they can. A minusing experience for me.
