    Anybody else think this was a dumb move?

    You know in the last ten years it seems Disney makes 3 wrong decisions for every good one they make. WHY PAINT THE ASTRO ORBITER?!
    Can't they just move the dang thing where they belong, back high up in the air like the old days.
    Does anybody else here agree with me?

    the paint doesn't bother me, but I think it was better up higher.

    Re: Anybody else think this was a dumb move?

    I don't know about the paint job
    but I think taking it down from it's orig. spot was dumb.

    I would say TL really hasn't had any great move lately (besides SM--the repainting of the outside and even the overhaul wasn't that bad).
    As much as some don't care for Buzz, I could think of worse things they could have put in (and isn't it kinda sad that we now put that in our sentences)

    I agree. It just blocks the way. It takes up a lot of space that could be used for something useful or interesting.

    No. I just don't like the rocks that are around it.

    Aren't they redoing TL sometime in the near future? If so what a perfect time to relocate the Astro Orbiter to it's rightful location as well as bring back the People Mover... The Echo's of this is said just way too often... lol...

    You need to go back and look up some of the threads about the Astro Orbitor. THose topics have been completely gone over and provides the reasons why the situation is as it is.

    well the attraction needed a major refurb and since it was going to be taken apart for that why not paint it. I am actually glad they went the extra step to repaint it to fit the new color scheme.

    It was either that or paint it the same and then in the future if it gets moved repainted one more time. Menahwile it would have been the same ugly paint scheme for a few more years.


    sure it would be better if it was moved but that can not happen until the structural problems of the tower are taken care off

    AO will only be put up on the platform when Disney decides to put something on the PM track... so expect to wait several more years
