    Oh how my opinion has changed over the last 8 months.

    My 25 top most wanted changes:

    Notthing too "out there" in these suggestions.

    1) Remove Pirates FP machines and get the queue into the courtyard. Get the stroller parking away from Adventureland walkway.
    done

    Attempted... failed?

    2 out of 4, with a 3rd rumored to be on the way.

    I hate SAP people cutting in.

    I hate people standing outside in the sun while the wonderful queue is empty.

    Again, hate people having to go in the exit.

    Now the more controversial.

    Hopefully the more serious feel will come back with the refurb.

    I still think this is a good idea. Half as many FastPasses so the lines move twice as fast (twice as many people in the queues and out of the walkways). Reserve the FastPasses to those paying the most per visit....

    And yes... I'm an AP, and I'd hate to lose FP, but not as much as I'd love for non-regulars to have a better time so they'll come back and spend more money so that I can get a better park.

    Changed my mind on this one... Jack the prices again. People like me may downgrade, but probably won't walk away from the AP program.

    11) Dedicated areana for Fantasmic!
    The idea is to convert the swap and hill (where mine train was wiped out) into a Fantasmic viewing area to open up Frontierland and New Orleans to foot trafic.

    I still think this is a good idea, but would be tough to hide the seating from the passing river boats during the day.

    I still think this needs to be done. The river is quickly losing its "interesting stuff to look at".

    This had been long rumored, so it isn't like I "came up with it". being done.

    Again, changed my mind. I don't see the operational costs of PM justifying the low ridership it is likely to receive.... To have something just to make the land look "right".... seems like the wrong thing to do to me.

    I've downgraded my expectations a bit. I'll settle for 2 E-Tickets and 4 c/d tickets over the next 5 years.

    I was glad to hear in Al's update that Autopia will hopefully be phasing out its Fastpass. It doesn't need it at all and it really congests that tiny corner by Innoventions.

    Add this to the list though:

    26) Remove Star Tours fastpass junk to free up the walkway

    8. I agree to slow the JC down, but only to add more jokes.
    9. That's my idea!! I'm gonna sue!!!
    10. I'd still like to see PAP dumped instead. This lowers AP revenues, but it will make for a more enjoyable high season for the paying guests. And AP holders can still pay their $30 blockout fee to go during high season.

    Amen to that...I'm just curious to know, what the heck happened to the cabin on fire...why isn't it ablaze anymore as of recent?

    The blazing cabin was stopped after the last draining of RoA. THere was a gas line that went there that hasn't been re-opened since.
