    Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    It's never been close to an E ticket ride. It was really an opportunity to take advantage of the popularity of TS while offering a Space theme ride to Tomorrow Land. It's more that run it's course. It's barely "shall do ride" and more of "may do ride" for guests, rarely appealing to children over the age of 10, and known for it's very short wait times.

    WALL-E, on the other hand has much more promise to offer more exiting technical appeal. With 3D, Imagineers could really offer a spectacular ride. Interactive and innovative.

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    Was it ever supposed to an E-ticket. So what does Wall-E have that has more appeal? Shoot at fat people?
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    I'm at disney at least twice a week and there is always a line of people to ride this ride , it my be a short one but this ride is a high capacity one. while I agree walle would fit better I don't think everything needs to be 3d , taking out real dementional characters for a movie screen would upset me. I for one love astro blasters and toy story midway. I think making this one 3d is a horible idea

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    ^toy Story Mania disagrees with you....as much as I dislike screens.....Toy Story does it SOOO much better then the buzz rides....I really don't care for Buzz because besides the whole not fitting theme, the tech on it is pretty old (soo ironic), its slow (and no I dont just mean the vehicles) and really did nothing new or that fun.

    I would be up for a hybrid ride of half screens and half reprops (like Transformers) and it would be even cooler if they could try to teach you SOMETHING, if done right learning can be fun

    I don't think Toy Story Mania does it better, it's nice to have ACTUAL things to shoot at. I love Wall-E, and perhaps a dark ride somewhere could be fun, but I enjoy Buzz every time I go, and I usually ride it more than once.

    What I'm saying is, blab was done like 70's Disney animations. Need I say more.

    Today the powers that be have raised the bar significantly. Technology offers some unique combinations of imagination and innovation. They could really create something, quite literally, out of this world.

    I think Buzz has more kid appeal over Wall•E.
    Just my opinion.

    I don't feel that way with Buzz
    so most of the time I prefer Buzz.

    Buzz is a people eater like Pirates, Small World, HM and Mermaid...in no way does the fact that more people can go on them make them better rides.

    Toy Story by far has a bigger fan base, heck even a video game was made because people wanted to play it at home. Its much more fast pasted, interment, rewarding and interactive then Buzz.

    I'm a video gamer but for me....I have a lot of trouble knowing if my shots even hit since there are like 20 other people aiming at the same target as me...using the same color laser.

    Also go to DCA on almost any given day and the line for Toy Story is over 40 mins in the first ten mins and 90 for almost the whole day.....yeah I would say it too poplar which keeps me from ride it more then I would like

    It was never supposed to be. It is a modern take on the classic dark ride like Snow White or Mr. Toad. It was just enhanced with lazer guns and video game scoring.

    It opened in 2005. Seven years to me does not seem like running its course. Because of the scoring factor, the ride has definite repeatability. When it consistently sends out empty cars and no one is riding anymore, I will feel then that it has run its course.

    I'm very competitive. Therefore, this is always a must do ride for me. Further, whether I am riding with my two children who are under 10, or with a group of adults, this ride has been found appealing by all.

    In addition, the short wait times are due to the Omnimover system. It is the same reason that Haunted Mansion and the mermaid ride have short waits.

    I'm with the group that is wondering why WALL-E has more promise than Buzz. I think it comes down to personal preference. You may be a WALL-E fan, I wasn't really that impressed. I'll chalk it up to a difference of opinion.

    I agree. While I find Midway Mania fun, I can't really ride it more than once per trip because I feel like my arms are going to fall off.

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    Back on Topic...people are saying Wall-E is not as poplar as Buzz...but Cars is one of the lowest rated Disney movie (I know it make a lot off toys though) and the new land looks great.....heck Splash is based on a movie most people have never seen

    I'm sure if done right Wall-E could be themed like an E-ticket but just be a shorter ride then most. Plus Wall-e would seem like a great time to put to use a interactive Q while keeping with theme

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    I think walle has possiblities as an attraction but I feel it would be better served as a possible Captain Eo replacement then one for buzz! Personally I think buzz is a great attraction!
    BGood! It's not just my motto its my name!

    Is there even merchandise for Wall•E.
    You see Toy Story Merchandise all over the place. I'm trying to even think if I've seen Wall•E Merchandise lately (at least at the Disney store).

    Re: Replacing BLAB with a WALL-E adventure.

    Buzz gets a line, but that could just be cause it's all ages. I think Wall E is a superior film, especially in the Pixar canon, and definitely needs an attraction in Tomorrowland. Now does that attraction need to replace Buzz, I don't really care, but as one of the only Pixar films that fits a themed land, they should take advantage.
