    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    I really like this ride, the only change I would make is to the Aliens scene. I have the same problem with my children not wanting to go on the ride because of that scene. They could easily replace it with Star Wars or with one of the super hero franchises Disney just bought ie: Iron Man, Spider Man, etc...
    never fear...DISNEYMATT IS HERE!!

    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    What I would like in a rehab:

    1. Fix the Footlight Parade carousel and restore the divers to the platforms before the Footlight scene. (and if you haven't seen a Busby Berkeley musical, you should)
    2. Pull Alien.
    3. Rework lame script around the horror area.
    4. Do NOT pull Tarzan/Weissmuller! That is iconic.
    5. North by Northwest. Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint hanging from Mount Rushmore or the cropdusting scene would both work wonderfully - and NxNW is a Hitchcock film not owned by Universal.
    6. Rework finale. Remove montage on the cheap and create a real ending.
    7. Do something...ANYTHING...with the Fantasia/twister room.
    8. Switch the props in the queue more often.
    9. TRON anyone?
    10. Get rid of that dang hat somehow.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    At this point I would be happy to see just about anything done to the ride, even if nothing changed, just clean it and polish it up a bit. I agree that the Alien scene could be scary for kids, but lets remember that Disney has never been afraid of making kids a little scared from time to time. Some of the classic movies have some intense stuff for kids. So i don't think they would change that. as far as movies they could add, I'm sure we all could make a list a mile long of worthy movies. But it really doesn't matter what they add, just as long as they do it well.

    I love the movies as well, but rode it twice my last visit and had to be escorted out of the ride because of mechanical failure.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    Yes, but that isn't due to the age of the ride. That will happen with any attraction (I've had it happen with TSM, and it's only a few years old. Heck, it has even happened with Harry Potter. And it's not even a year old yet).

    The GMR is one of my favorite attractions. Yet, I would like some changes. But if they messed it up, especially with the CM interactions I would not be a happy camper.

    I would like the imagineers from the Haunted Mansion to work on the GMR, they seem to know how to improve.
    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.

    I'd rather it stay the same than be incoherently transformed.

    I dunno if this will happen for quite a while... with new Fantasyland, a possible Star Wars area in MGM rumored (dont know how true it is) and i know Disney is looking into the success of the Muppets movie in November for possible re-theming near Pizza Planet ... i dunno when there will be money for it... but we never know...

    I think GMR should just update the AAs and the finale movie

    Make it more Disney Themed with more classic Disney movies. The ride is fine but it is quickly becoming old and stale. I never skip it because the line is short and air conditioned.

    I think if they ever do something to GMR, they shouldnt add any new scenes or even change it that much, but update the script and make it more exciting. Maybe even add the bubbles back to the footlight parade scene and have a water effect when the alien is above the vehicle. GMR is a classic now so they really shouldnt change it that much in my opinion.
