    WWTBAM is OK - but there are only so many times you want to play it!!

    I also think that - even though the concept is good - it doesn't really fit in with the Disney Theme of things.

    The idea for a Toy Story ride sounds excellent!!

    ABC didn't create the show. It was created by Michael Davies for the UK, and when he brought it to the US, ABC bought the rights.

    I liked Millionaire. I never got very far, but my family members were in the running a couple of times. It was a great place to spend some relaxing, cool down time on hot days. I'll miss it.

    it wasnt something that you had to do at MGM. Like you have to go on Rock'n'roll, but Millionaire was kinda something that you would do if you has time to. MGM does need more rides.
    Got Disney?

    I like the Millionaire attraction as well, but this Toy Story idea might be pretty awesome. Depending on what they do with it...

    My only concern would be that it is too similar to the Buzz Lightyear ride. It probably won't be, but all I've really heard so far is that you shoot things and that its interactive, which is pretty much what BLSRS is.

    I am actually really sad to hear about this. I thought this went well with the theming of MGM, being a movie and tv lot - this was a chance for park goers to feel like they were part of the taping of a show, rather than just watchin a show or riding a ride.

    I am also bummed because I only got to go once, and won't get to go when I am back in December.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    Well, keep in mind, in order to keep more people comming to their parks, Disney has to get rid of the old and create the new. I would definately like to see more ride attractions in MGM, but still keeping in mind about the whole "movies" themed park idea. The Toy Story Idea, MIGHT be a little too Buzz's Astro Blasters, unless they were going to create a ride around Woody and Jessie?!?! JUST please don't do another set themed walk through! One is ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!(I mean, you COULD do PotC hehe)

    Now as for the Drew Carey's Sounds Dangerous, I LOVE IT, but I do agree, it is do for a refurb. Maybe another show with Robbin Williams or Drew Carrey again. They're both VERY funny and have done some really cool stuff for Disney.
