    God I hope they dont change the restraints. I love slipping in sliding on the ride. Thats half the fun.

    I'm guessing the que line is getting a revamp. I personally love it all as it is. But if they are making it a better experience, I'm loving that too.

    I hear the loop crosses over the pathway and into the abandoned mine across the pond where we will experience the dark corkscrew.

    Over-the-shoulder restraints.

    After what they did to the Matterhorn with new ride vehicles I am not excited for that one. They better not mess up the train cars.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    This. It's a slow ride, but the ability to slide around a little in the seats makes it seem much faster and more intense. If they put in individual lap bars and separate seats, the ride will seem far less exciting. I don't see it happening, however, since WDW just had a similar refurb to theirs and its trains are exactly the same.

    I will scream if they pull a Matterhorn and remove all the padding in the seats!

    One of the trains in Disneyland Paris' Thunder Mountain has seat dividers. I can't remember if there were individual lap bars as well, but it had the same effect. I didn't notice anything btw. They were themed to look like saddles which was kind of neat. Still, I hope (and don't think) that they will won't change the trains. The ability to fit three per a row helps with capacity somewhat.

    The one thing you can rely on Disney these days is messing things up. (Looking at Matterhorn refurb straight in the eye.)

    Keep on paying those increased admission prices!

    Although there is evidence of that in front of us, I am still going to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. Who knows what they are doing and it could even be for the better. If it's for safety purposes (whatever they may be) then it is what it is. We'll have to hold on and see. Saying they will mess up before they have even started on anything is jumping the gun a little bit.

    I'll continue to pay for my AP simply for my love of the park, despite some of the things that have happened recently.

    I agree! I recently rode while it was raining and it was definately crazier than usual, but so fun.
