I can still dissagree, who's to say that those films would have made good rides at all?Originally Posted by ModHatter
it is true that after Disneyland was built Walt was interested in building different things but that doesn't say everything for how Walt would have reacted to changing needs downt he line
and it's interesting that you mentioned Pooh when you speak of rides getting rave reviews last time I checked Pooh in TDL is getting TONS of rave reviews. Roger Rabbit is still very popular with many people inculding teens dispite the fact that almost every other ride containing static sets has been looked down on for this age group, but the combination of new ride vehicals plus good writing really sells Roger Rabbit Pooh in TDL is good because it takes a character which to me is very boring and full of yawns and turns it into an exciting adventure. I would also say that this is why Splash Mountain is so great and not just because people have never seen these characters much before but because the design is great and the writing and style is good and "I" am the star.
Toons arn't limiting if you don't use them as an excuse to not do a good job (which is arguably what Disney is doing with Toons in america, they're taking the assumption that people will love a ride because of the toons and that will make them overlook every other flaw in the ride)
