My friend is a skipper there she says there will be a new scene added somewhere along the ride, but it will remain in tact otherwise and all the animatronics are being fixed, upgraded or repaired, similar to Tiki...but of course all of this isn't nearly as cool as the return of the guns...dang thats sweet!
lol they brought them back because Eisner came to the park and was talking to some of the guys that worked on Cruise, making a comment about how cool the guns were........ they told him they were banned LOL he didnt even know that and it was said he was the one that banned them LIES LOL So all of a sudden they came back. I love it when eisner looks stupid
Evil is lurking behind the matterhorn........ wait, that's just Mickey
I am still pretty bummed that you will no longer be able to see the Jungle Cruise from the Indy line. That was always fun and the skippers had some sayings specifically for the people exiting or waiting in line for the ride. Too bad.
I know they're tearing out most of the dead bamboo from around the attraction. It's a HUGE JOB! They will be replacing most of the planters with indigenous plants from around the world. It should be pretty cool when done!

I understand they are adding a "rain forest" area to the ride, right out of the docks, where IJatTotFE area is. Also, that they are really doing a number on the plants so that the plant life is consistent with the supposed geography of the various scenes.
