    Does anyone else miss Jeremy Irons' narration of Spaceship Earth. I still love the attraction and the plusses that were done to it, but I hate that they replaced Jeremy Irons. What an awesome voice!

    Re: "Minusing"

    I genuinely cannot find any example of "plussing" in that attraction following the refurbishment.

    Seriously.

    Removal of the hand/epcot sign/year was addition by subtraction.

    I will disagree with you. But only this once. The new animatronics added into (the first half of) the new version are incredible.

    Re: "Minusing"

    Is it in a public area or backstage?

    It's at the WDI Campus in Glendale in their outdoor seating area for lunch. Near the Mickey's of Glendale store. There is also this right next to it literally collecting dust.

    Maybe it's there to serve as an inspiration. Or maybe it's where they keep stuff they're about to list on Ebay.

    I'm sure it is for inspiration/decoration. I'd much rather it be on WDI campus than on eBay, but then again, I'd rather it be somewhere where people can see it.

    I asked Dave Smith about the rumoured Disney Museum that is going to be put in the AMC Theatre. His response: "What museum?"

    But I know Bob Iger has tossed around and flirted with the idea of a museum.

    This is sad but interesting. It is also illustrative of minusing.

    Ya, there are sure the dark side of Disney at times.
    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.

    Re: "Minusing"

    Something I've seen as "minusing" in my more recent visits has been the friendliness of (some) staff. I remember my first trips in 2001 and 2002 - every single cast member we came in contact with was AMAZING!!! However, our last two trips, we ran into several cast members who, IMO, did not live up to the WDW service promise. I encountered two different cast members complaining about their jobs in public spaces, surrounded my guests. It's just not what I expect from employees in front of paying guests/customers in any service industry, let alone at WDW.

    Hope to be taking a Cruise on Disney Magic in 2012...fingers crossed.
