    They are highly needed in California. It is drier here than in other areas of the country which means you will dry faster. But depending on what time of day you are wet you can be downright miserable if you aren't completely dry.

    Depends on the person. I usually only ride water rides at night because lines are non-existent, I have no problem being a little cold.
    However I think ponchos eliminate the need to install dryers. If you don't want to be wet, use a poncho or avoid the ride on colder days or after dark.

The shoes/socks thing is an issue, but that's easily fixed by just wearing flip flops or something while riding. Alternatively, you can bring or buy additional socks to change into.
    Yeah, I have gotten pretty wet on Grizzly, but never got more than a light mist on splash to make things damp.

    I agree. Judging from the ones that I have encountered in Legoland and Knott's the amount of guests actually using Disneyland's driers might not justify the cost of maintaining them. I mean, there's gotta be a pretty substantial cleaning effort that gets rid of that smell of foot & must everyday.

    Good point. They do this for GRR too although that never guarantees that the guests won't get soaked. However, it is very rare to see guests walking out of these attractions soaked head to toe even during summer.

    I vote no for the sheer fact that if you go on a water ride you should expect to get wet. If people go on Splash Mountain or Grizzly River and expect to walk off the ride still dry then they don't understand the concept of water rides.

    I wasn't too happy or comfortable walking around soaking wet for 4 hours after riding Splash Mountain in October, but it happens. If you don't want to get soaked then don't go on the ride.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    I could care less about body dryers. I just wish that non-water attractions didn't have wet seats from people who sought water based thrills beforehand!

    Are you sure it was water on the seats?

    My friends and I wore ponchos on a trip a couple weeks ago, and we still got soaked on Grizzly River (see my TR for photos of our ponchos and soak level) - though we rode it expecting to get wet (it's a water ride, after all). On Splash, I rarely get my whole body soaked but usually manage to get my right shoe soaked from water spilling over. Ponchos don't help that. Flip flops do, so I suppose there's an answer for everything!

    And my sneakers totally stunk after Grizzly.

    I wore my slip-on Vans the day I got soaked on Splash Mountain and I wound up having to spray them with Febreeze when I got home. The smell of the water doesn't help much. They also went from white to a dark creme color real quick.

    Getting wet with no real way other than sun and time to dry you off is a good deterrent for some people,which helps limit line length, so I'd rather not see the dryers.

    I wouldn't mind them really. They're about the size of a photobooth and can easily be tucked in a corner somewhere. Universal has them and they're pretty well themed. I don't know if they'd be necessary at Disneyland since Splash Mountain rarely soaks you (it will if your log is front heavy), but DCA could use them at Grizzly and the water play areas.

    I've used them at Universal - the problem with them is they basically don't work. After going on Jurassic Park, then paying twice for two goes in the dryer, I was still nowhere near dry.

    Waste of money. I now carry a poncho and flip flops = problem solved (and I have got totally, I mean TOTALLY soaked on GRR!)

    "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules.

Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???
