    oh dont get me started with the aquarium... the fact that it is not taken care of the right way and the lack of sea life within is a sin...

    Until I saw the video of before the refurb, I never noticed how bad this pavilion is. It's like they wanted to do a cheap refurb and did a bad job at it. The talking fish are annoying IMO and Finding Nemo seems so 2003. I'd like to see this one get a proper refurb someday and at least be somewhat presentable. Take some of that queue space and do something. Oh, I forgot all of that queue space came at the expense of the preshow and hydrolators...am I the only one that thinks the queue line is very long here?? It turns and goes forever. For the amount of people that wait to see this, it could be much shorter.

    The only decent part is the exhibits and it always seems like I'm looking at more water than fish.

    the queue is extremely long here... i do enjoy the idea of the queue though... that you start on the beach and end up under water with the barnacles on the dock and the bottom half of the boat... but you are right... way too long...

    This ride was a walk on last month and the ride is not even worth that. They need to make like a long clear tube that you can walk through. A tube that you can see sea life through the floor, walls and ceilings.

    Re: Worst WDW refurb/update or closure...

    the problrm here is not the queue nor the attraction i think... it is the fact that Disney has the largest salt water aquarium and they dont use it the way they should... i dont see very many exotic fish in there... they need to get back to that... i feel the Nemo overlay could work with an attraction that makes better use of the aquarium...

    I agree completely it just seems like such a waste. The best things to look at are the smaller display aquariums, they are the only ones that have anything worth viewing. It just seems that you only see such a small fraction of the he giant tank. The Rainforest actually does a much better job at a making a saltwater aquarium worth looking at. If I want to see fish I'd rather go there.

    Re: Worst WDW refurb/update or closure...

    One of mine was definitely the Space Mountain refurb...I was so lost without it when I went that summer

    and just something random concerning the Living Seas/Coral Reef...about 4 or 5 years ago my family and I ate at the Coral Reef, and Mickey Mouse was in a scuba outfit in the tank, and our table was up against the tank glass...very very cool, since the waiters said that happens very rarely

    I was not a huge fan of Alien Encounter, but I do not like Stitch. I never even do it any more.

    Me too. Far more theatrical than Cronkite, but more serious than Dench.

    The animatronic Greek tutor is enough for me to block out the narration. Magnificient piece of machinery.

    Personally, I'm not crazy about what they're doing to the Haunted Mansion queue. It may wind up being an improvement but it still makes me nervous that they're messing with it.
