One thing I noticed when going on the attractions is the sound, music, ect is very loud. When we went in '05 I don't recall the sound being so loud that my ears ring, maybe just because it had been awhile? This recent trip, even rides I went on previously seem a lot louder then before. Is it possible the rides are actually louder now, or is it just me? What is so curious to me is I love to crank up my music super loud and my family always accuses me of having hearing loss because it is too loud for them! The worst offender is the Nemo Subs, I like the concept of the ride, but one time was enough for me purely because of the deafening sounds and narration of the characters. HM and PotC was too, but I can reasonably see why, one that surprised me on not being overly loud was Small World!
Anyway, just another random thought by me!
