HM gets major points for great writing and delivery that perfectly match the rest of the attraction (the Spanish spiel excepted), but I definitely had a soft spot for the old BTMRR spiel, before it ended in "WIIIIILDERNEEESSSSSSS!"
Call me old fashioned, but I like the down-home approach taken by the guy on the Disneyland RR.
And I can see sitting down and having a beer with the parking lot tram guy too. I'd make sure to sit "well back" in my barstool, with no lap sitting. And if I drop anything, I'd alert the nearest waitress!
