I was in the park yesterday morning and wondering around in Fantasyland, when I noticed a man (without a name tag) taking pictures of the Pan boats and holding a note pad and what looked like blue prints of the ride. When I asked around about what he was doing, CM’s told me that to everyone’s surprise, "WDI was thinking of redesigning the boats for Pan" and he was taking notes on the problems with the current boats. (Notice how that was said to me: "Thinking")
I asked a few different classics east CM’s and got the same story, even got the name of the guy. Anyone know if there is any merit to this rumor?
I did see the guy and the blue prints. Wish I had a camera. From what I was told, the new boats were going to be “more universal,” and hopefully with higher seats.
Can anyone with connections verify this?
