    As long as they don't use this guy as a CM in the scene I'm ok with it. It is a classic Disney film after all.

    I love GMR! One of my most favorite rides ever (the very first Disney ride I ever went on). It's a classic, and I can understand a refurbishment, but keep it as is. All of the scenes work perfectly together, and adding anything too new would throw off the flow. I love the Alien scene, it's fun watching other peoples' reactions (and I like the feel of the cool mist too!). GMR isn't GMR without that guy. It's more recognizeable than a lot of the older movies portrayed, but it's a great way of showing people of all ages the history of the movies and all different types (and people need to be scared now and then anyway ). And the montage at the end is also great how it shows where we were and where we are in Hollywood. This ride is the reason I wanted to see Singin' in the Rain, and now I love that movie. GMR wonderfully covers all sorts of different movie genres, and horror is no exception. There is a warning outside that it may be frightening to some, can't say they didn't warn you. And don't worry, the animatronic alien is not going to jump down and eat you lol. If people keep going on it and keep complaining about getting scared, then that's their problem and no one elses. The queue video is also a good way to let the guests know what is coming, and if they don't like what they see, they can exit if they want. If they wanted to really sugarcoat every scary thing in Disney World, it would be too sparkly. Think about it, people are scared of lots of rides in some way: the Haunted Mansion sometimes scares people (kids usually), same with Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain (drops and stuff), and so on. You see, you can't please everyone. All rides have warnings of some type, so guests are told what they are getting themselves into. To sum this up, scare is good. Don't change GMR. Keep the alien .

    I apologize if I seem pushy or whatever, but I'm just stating my opinion (I'm a very dedicated GMR fan ).

    Want to talk about overkill, how many times have we read the word "classic" in this thread alone? I think the word is starting to lose meaning XD

    That's what I'M thinkin'. No love for the spy, man. Now, you know me. I'm always up for some change in WDW. I wouldn't mind if they removed the Alien, but shouldn't they replace him with something that doesn't already have a ride of it's own? I'm thinking, if they ever want to put the Pirate movie in GMR, wait until the add-ons to POTC have lost their novalty value, turn it back to the original ride, and move some of those animatronics to GMR. Until then, too much is too much and I like the Pirate movies

    Rumors rumors rumors

    It may be true, or may not but true. What ever the case is I dont believe that they would start changing it with a whole scene of POTC. Especially since the changed up the actual pirate ride. If there gonna add any type of scene it would most likely be on from the mid-late 90s. Boy if they did change it they would hear it htough.

    It would not surprise me if they removed the Alien part, but it would be vey disappointing. The Great Movie ride needs an update, but why take out the one homage to Sci-fi and horror movies? Yes, they have a Star Wars nod in the end, but that's hardly enough in a ride showing the "Great Movies." The Alien segment is one of the best (and most unique) aspects of the GMR, and I would be even less enthusiastic if it was removed.

    Secondly, I would be very disappointed if a scene from Pirates was added to replace the Alien scenes. I've heard that the new scenes in the MK ride are great, but Pirates is hardly a film (like Alien) that people will remember in 25+ years. It has made tons of money, but they need to give it a serious breather before the Pirates overload becomes too much. We'll see what happens.

    Cheers!

    I kinda doubt that about the Pirates movie. It was one of the better and most popular live action efforts Disney has done. Although, the pirate oversaturation is getting to be a bit much. But that's Disney...beat the horse until it turns into glue.

    You think so? They DID say the same thing about Star Wars and Wizard of Oz wasn't even popular in theaters.
