    The Western show is run pretty often. It may not be run as much as the Gangster show (because Western can't run without Gangster), but it still runs a lot

    I'm glad I was just dreaming this up. We recently went on this ride with friends and I asked DH about the western scene. He said it never existed. Wish I'd placed a big bet on that one.

    Re: Fix the Great Movie Ride

    I agree with things from both the group that want to keep it the way it is, and those who also would like an update. There is something to be said for the classic attraction, however they need to do some refurb on it and add or change a couple scenes. They dont have the room to flat out expand on the ride do they? If they were to change alien, Id like to see a similar creepy scene put in place.. perhaps the Carbonite freezing room from Empire Strikes Back with the appropriate sounds and voices, or the Emperors Throne room from Return of the Jedi with the sounds and lights of the lightsaber duel and Palpatine laughing in the background.

    Ideas that should never be implemented: The Great Jar Jar Binks Experience, or anything to do with Indiana Jones 4..or 5 if they make it

    I like the ride as it is. But I do agree that some of the AA's need to be updated.

    I would replace the LONG MOVIE WHEN YOUR WAITING IN LINE! It's like a 5 minute movie that keeps looping and you can't watch anything else! It's terrible! Disney should at least make it a half an hour so you can actually stay interested!

    Re: Fix the Great Movie Ride

    yeh but considering your only on line for 5 minutes nowadays what would be the difference... but i agree the loop should be longer...

    Re: Fix the Great Movie Ride

    Just got back from the World yesterday... Gotta say, this ride has jump the shark... It either needs major updating or it needs to go... I'd prefer the update.

    I found myself dozing off several times during the ride. The drivers and actors are never very good at their roles on this attraction. The audio animatronics are old, and just everything is boring.

    At one time I really really enjoyed this ride, and I still always have to go on it when I go to WDW, but man this attraction needs a facelift!

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I've always felt that the tour guides do a good job

    Re: Fix the Great Movie Ride

    I personally like the Great Movie Ride the way it is. I love the Alien scene, I think it might even be my favorite scene. What scene would I remove and what would I replace it with? If Star Wars didn't have its own ride I would add that but it does so lets forget about that. I would probably add Dr. No or Rocky but I really don't know what I would remove. I guess the Tarzan scene could go but I would hate to get rid of anything.
