    WDW Radio # 329 - Great Movie Ride DSI: Disney Scene Investigation and Disney Trivia

    Great Movie Ride DSI: Disney Scene Investigation and Disney Trivia Contest - July 7, 2013

    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #329 for the week of July 7, 2013.

    We'll visit Disney's Hollywood Studios this week and take a close look at the history, stories and secrets of The Great Movie Ride. We'll explore not just how it came to be, its changes and details, but virtually visit each scene and also discuss what we could change, and why… and then ask you to do the same!

    I'll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new challenge for your chance to win a Disney prize package.

    Stay tuned as I'll have some announcements including information about our upcoming E-Ticket event, and play some of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    What about My Fair Lady as a scene for the musical portion of the Great Movie Ride?

    Re: WDW Radio # 329 - Great Movie Ride DSI: Disney Scene Investigation and Disney Tri

    Great and fun show topic. GMR is a classic attraction, but I really think it's time for a refreshing, even if just a few scenes. As it is now, it's kind of the Forgotten Movie Ride, at least for about half of them.
    What I wrestle with is how to start the ride. The first 2 scenes, are so old, that few recognize them. But, I'm not really sure where to start. I want to say maybe Gone With the Wind, but then that doesn't really go back far enough. I'll have to think on it a bit more.

    A few thoughts on some musical/dance/gangster films that might be a bit more current and recognizable.

    Dance/Musicals

    Saturday Night Fever or Grease - I almost think Saturday Night Fever probably because it's so recognizable.

    Mary Poppins - this has to stay!
    Sound of Music - this would be a great addition, but I would hesitate because of Julie Andrews again, but really, you can't go wrong with having her twice.



    Gangster
    The Godfather
    Scarface
    Pulp Fiction

    All 3 of these are very recognizable.

    I would say that The Great Movie Ride needs a refurb like Spaceship Earth did - it needs technology added to it to make it more interactive. For example, when you go on the backlot studio tour in Universal Studios, there are television screens to show either clips while there is down time and/or to show trailers of their upcoming films. In response to the beginning of the ride, I would say keep Singin' in the Rain - but open the umbrella! If people get wet, that just makes it all the more fun. I think they also need to rewrite the script because it's so dry and I'm sure that's why it's hard for the Cast Members to get into it sometime.
