    Hopefully this rumor is just starting because of the closure of the one in CA. I enjoy this show a lot too.

    I actually thought of one reason Millionaire could close despite it's popularity since it was made to use an under utilized soundstage, if there is a large increase of use in sound stages at the studios perhaps that would be a reason to close it. That said it seems unlikely.

    Did Millionaire once a couple of years ago. I guess since it has lost its popularity on TV its time Disney moved on to something else. Here in Indiana the TV show is on ABC around Noon. My wife still watches, but the contestants can't get past the $1,000 question most of the time anymore.

    We always check out what's happening in that building. Is Haunted Mansion movie set still there?

    JC, the HM set is still in the stage next door. They use it for special events and the like.

    Were they not using it? It was there just two days ago. It splits from the main line behind the control panel.

    OK OK OK.....I know you guys like WWTBAM....but come on if they don't pull it out it's going to soon die. Yes, it's pack but when you have lines, its a fast place to get into. IF they keep it then they should make it a more Disney focused version of the game and change up the show enough to seperate it from the TV shows image. Because if the TV show fails right now it may fail to. I sure hope they don't replace it with another stunt show....these are lame at best and very limited to the number of showings in a day.

    Indi ride...I like the DL version of it but it needs a little more pazaz if it gets done in WDW. What about a Temple of Doom roller coaster and add effects like the Indi ride in DL.

    20K will be replaced by another show hu .....probably another show based on old animation since the new animation bites. Again Show times are limited and they should focus on a ride. They can try Lion King, Little Mermaid, B and the Beast, Mulan, or Hercules (the last one could be fun if they run with it).

    Timekeeper closing....I've never seen it, but good....Since it opened it hasn't grabbed a big crowd. Lets let it die and move on....you could make a cool Tron or Black Hole ride out of this.

    Is space mountain still running (sarcasim) This ride needs a total tear down. It needs a launch like R'nR but up, and needs a cool interact set up. Lets lose the late 70's mission control and dated light effects....what about some smoke, fiberoptics, and so on. I can't believe we get excited over a line change up. Is this what Paul Presslers reign of terror has made us do.....get excited over lame things ....Oh my head They could work on it on side at a time.

    Disney needs to re-focus its efforts.....first and formost on the maintainence of the parks (cleaning and fixing). Then address the transportation....Another DVC is not in my plan book of upgrades it needs to have right now, if your can't get those people to the parks with in an hour. Then push in 7 more thrill rides (at least one for each park). Then go to Animal Kingdom and expand it. Kingdom in my mind means more the Asia and Africa. What about Australia or the Artic or the ocean. Then come back and add a Thrill ride heavy (not dominated) 5th park. That is a plan for success.

    I'd kinda like to see Disney still do an American History park. One thing I would like them to add to their plans for it is the old America Sings attraction, maybe they could get some economies of scale going by building the figures for a Spalsh Mountain for DLP (or one of the Chinese parks) at the same time they are building the America sings figures. For those of you who don't know the original cast of America Sings ended up, for the most part, in Disneylands Splash Mountain.

    I would agree to a Temple of Doom railcar ride that has elements of the film and the high-speed chase on it, but will it then be competing with Everest for ride time (But more roller coasters is always a good thing !!!)

    As for Space Mountain I love it, but the future and progress moves on. If they are going to redo it, would it not be a good idea to work on theming it along the Star Wars line. It would be great to have it be themed as a launch point for an attack on the Death Star and with a RRC launch be propelled directly into the fight.

    Just some random thoughts for comments.

    I personally love Space mountain the way it is. Its one of my favorite rides in Magic Kingdom so if they go to redo it I hope they keep it pretty much the same for the most part. I can't stand the winnie the pooh ride, I guess I am biast to it conicdering they took down Mr. Toads Wild Ride so I'm hoping they do something to make winnie the pooh a little more exciting. Indiana Jones, def. can use something new. Its an old show and everytime I go its been the same thing.
