    Stopped by the parks today to register for the AP F! event. I rode the Monorail to check out BVS and I noticed the spiel still mentions Electronica as you travel through HPB.

    Disney is probably not going to replace the Luigi's vehicles with a one passenger version. Reason? Kids under the age of 7 would not be able to ride it at all. Disney requires children under the age of 7 to be accompanied by an "adult" 16 years old or 54" tall.

    That's probably why they made the vehicles two seaters in the first place.

    Honestly, at times I think this park is just cursed. What an embarrassment (as if TLM wasn't bad enough).

    I wouldn't say TLM is bad. I've talked to a bunch of friends and family, who enjoy the park without a figurative magnifying glass that sometimes I do, and although they say it isn't the most amazing attraction ever, it definitely is a good attraction that kids enjoy and some of my friends who grew up with the film loved it as well. I wouldn't say TLM is an embarrassment. I think it adds a lot to Paradise Pier and I enjoy it.

    ^^Umm TLM is very popular... Just because you don't like it personally doesn't mean that it is a failure. Obviously DCA will NEVER have as high attendance as Disneyland so therefore TLM and other rides will have shorter lines because there are less people in the park. Disneyland has more rides than DCA but Disneyland's capacity is something like 80,000 where DCA is something like 30,000. Per ride there just is never going to be as many people in DCA. That means that even on capacity days TLM will not have line as long as HM even though TLM has the same ride system. TLM, Paradise Gardens, ect that certain people think are failures are certainly not seen as so by Disney.

    If you find TLM to be a creative, original, memorable experience, than God bless ya. Personally, I'd rather ride Mr. Toad. And yes, that is my opinion - not sure why when someone states an opinion people feel the need to disprove it. You love it, great. I find it to be a sad commentary on what WDI has become.

    And here's a ringing endorsement about a major attraction that was meant to start to change people's perception about DCA:

    "I've talked to a bunch of friends and family, who enjoy the park without a figurative magnifying glass that sometimes I do, and although they say it isn't the most amazing attraction ever, it definitely is a good attraction that kids enjoy and some of my friends who grew up with the film loved it as well."

    Ah yes, the old Disney magic is back!

    DCA is not cursed, it's the lack of real talent at WDI and the ever growing corporate mentality which stifles creativity.

    Declining by Degrees or "The Creeping Meh"... same difference. Enormous budgets spent for attractions that are... meh. Rocket Rods. Winnie the Pooh. Tarzan's Treehouse. Finding Nemo Underwater Kiddie Video. Luigi's Underinflated Tires. Lackluster parades, generic merchandise, mismatched themes... the list is long and sad when compared to the blow-your-socks-off innovation that the Company was once capable of -- and insisted on.

    The reality is that when it comes to the heritage of heavy creative lifting that gave birth to Disneyland and drove its astonishing first quarter century, the Disney Company's muscles have atrophied. They simply cannot press that kind of weight any more.

    Even if they wanted to.

    I noticed that they Disney website does not mention Condor Flats as a separate land as some thought they were still going to keep referring to as a land. It now combines Soaring and GRR It says....

    Golden State

    Discover the spirit of adventure amid the natural wonderland of Golden State! Take in awe-inspiring landscapes on Soarin' Over California, splash over white-water rapids on the Grizzly River Run or relax with a fine glass of wine and a laid-back meal at the Wine Country Trattoria at the Golden Vine Winery.

    If anyone is interested, here is an interactive map for Carsland featuring Radiator Springs Radio. I just like to listen to what they say, but most of the stuff leads you back to the disneyland website.

    Cars Land | Opening June 15 | Disney California Adventure Park

    Also New Carsland CM? Maybe the one they will use for TV?

    I forgot to mention that they opened the Blue Sky Cellar again. I'm not sure if it's new or if I just barely noticed but they were playing music that could very well be background music for Cars Land. For example, while I was there they played Green Onions by Book T.& The MG's and Wheels by The Flying Burrito Brothers.

    Not sure if anyone has made the connection but I just noticed Ariel's new hair resembles the hair that she has on the poster for the ride.

    You people confuse me.. The Little Mermaid is one of the most high tech, highly themed Fantasyland style darkrides created.. it blows toad, snow, pinnochio, and alice out of the water.. Peter Pan only wins because of the ride vehicle.

    I like TLM and don't think at all it is bad, in fact I think it is well done for what it is.

    Couldn`t they have smaller single rider tires with room for lap sitting for little ones? Maybe they need to keep the large tires for wheelchair access.

    Has anyone else been wondering what might happen with the beach balls when the Santa Ana winds start blowing?
