    Humphrey and the Ranger would make great walk around characters for the Grizzly Peak area.

I really don't think that they'd be too scary if they were slightly cartoony looking and in funny, non-threatening situations. Although, I'd like a scary bear or two also added to the cave area. I don't think you can be overly sensitive about being scary, there are a million things at DL that could scare a kid, if they were all removed there litterally would be nothing left.
    True, but I mean like yeti scary. I think if they put a little comic relief in with a bear it'd be fine. In the cave, if there was one further back from the rafts it'd be good.

    Yah we've all been saying how Humphrey and Ranger would have made great walk-around characters since 2001. 9 years later, Disney still doesn't hear us.

    Do people from Disney read these boards at all?

    Bears don't need to be ferocious in AA form, just look at the original Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland they had AA bear figures.

    I completely agree. I don't know why each audio-animatronic debuting lately has to be so cutting edge. What's so impressive about Ariel's hair moving anyway? It just seems like a complete waste of money for an effect that fails to enhance much.

    On the other hand, as prehistoric as they may be, the animals on the 'Jungle Cruise' still work perfectly. Half of the animals on the African Veldt move nothing more than a tail, and yet they still do their job of suspending disbelief.

    How much can bears that simply move their neck cost to put in? The speed of Grizzly River Rapids wouldn't require the animals to need much movement...just placement more than anything.

    Well, Disney really wants you to believe that you're underwater with Ariel in the new ride. In the movie, her hair flows in the water. It doesn't just hang there. It will be an added effect that actually will enhance the feeling of being underwater.

    The animals on Jungle Cruise work because they are animals. Ariel is an incredibly beloved Princess whose mannerisms and motion are well known by many people. These mannerisms will be looked for.

    Animatronics need to be made cutting edge these days as other parks are doing this. Disney must at least keep up with other parks and really should be at least 1 step ahead of them.

    As for Ariel's hair... You are underwater. Long, flowing hair does not simply hang down when you're underwater. It flows in the water currents and reacts to the motion of your head and body. It's almost as if it's in zero-g, but even that isn't true because it will eventually settle lower with time. The physics of hair underwater is actually incredibly complex, and without this effect, the underwater scene will fall noticeably flat. Now, they could have opted for simply doing a big plastic mold for her hair and having it static, but that would look ridiculous. Instead, they took the much more difficult path of working out a way to make her hair move realistically, to reinforce the "underwater" setting as well as to breath a level of life into this animatronic that has previously been unheard of anywhere. THIS is exactly what Disney should be doing. Giving us things we have never seen before, pushing the limits of the possible.

    Since you seem to know so much about this animatronic, and it sounds like you've seen it already, care to elaborate?

    Hopefully this "added effect" makes me feel like I'm underwater, because I know the "added effects" they used on the Subs certainly didn't do their job of making me think the fish were really swimming in the water.

    Hopefully Ariel's hair isn't made by the makers of the Fantasmic! Dragon or this ride just might not open until 2013
