    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    Not sure if it was posted in this thread yet, but in daps' report on the press conference they recently had for Cars Land/Buena Vista Street, there's some pictures of what looks like new Fantasyland concept art (scroll to the bottom): A Walk Through Cars Land | DAPs Magic Geeks Corner . From the art, it looks like the stage will have individualized, themed backgrounds.

    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    Wait!!! Were we not told many times in various blogs, message boards and here that one of the improvements to the Matterhorn were the changing out of the trains? They were supposed to be replaced with side by side seating, but from everything I see in photos of the new trains, they all look like single seats down the center with the only change being each seat only has room for one person. This looks like it will mean even less riders per train. From what I see there are 3 single seats in each of the two cars that make up a train. That is only 6 riders per train. This is an improvement? Over what? I agree this eliminates the need to straddle another rider between your legs but it means less riders. Doesn't make much sense to me.

    It has always been single seating with the new bobsleds.

    Typically they were only seating 6 people at a time in the bobsleds more than 2 per seat. Also, the cast member would have to ask, "together or separate?" Now, with the new seating arrangement, the cast member just asks how many are in the party and place 1 person per seat. There is no guessing or people changing their minds to NOT sit together at the last minute, thus throwing off the count. Loading will go a lot faster as well meaning the capacity will go up. :0) Hope this explains.

    I think the confusion here may have come from people describing the new bobsled as "similar to space mountain" which they are... WDW's space mountain has this exact arrangement. Where ours is side by side. So if a person talking said that, and didn't specify which ride, itd cause confusion.

    Also, this will increase capacity, they wouldn't have changed the design if they hadn't already done a lot of research to see that this will be better.

    It's mentioned in this video, along with information about the vehicles and other updates.

    OK, that does make sense now and I never saw that video either. I am looking forward to riding it in July when I return to Disneyland for my birthday along with Disneyland's. And I will use the single rider line.
