    New Small World Boats!

    Looks like the boats are the new boats are being put into the Small World flume, as seen in this picture from MintCrocodile:

    These boats certainly look to be an improvement over the old ones. They look MUCH nicer!

    New boats! They are shiny, too. But seriously...I don't ride it, really...but good to see it looking fresh and new on the outside. Thanks for sharing the photo!

    I miss the old boats.

    I mean, they were the original ones used in the World's Fair!

    Sorry MCpeeps, I gotta disagree with this one... I don't really like the new seats... They seem lots like roller coaster seats...

    How so?
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    They look a little plastic in the pics too, but still look nice in the pics. I hope they don't look cheap up close though.

    Boring..........all the same color now.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Don't knock them till you sit on them. They're quite comfortable.

    If I remember correctly, it should be les bateaux plastiques, I think.

    I'm not crazy about the look, but my feeling on the matter is similar to how I feel about the other changes...ultimately, I don't ride the thing more than a few times a decade at most, so I can hardly complain.

    Not even to doublecheck the alignment and depth of the flume under the tracks and berm?
