    Well true- but you also have to remember that Splash (and the entire Resort for that matter) gets a lot of abuse thrown upon it every day.

    I agree that it needs a little TLC, but also remember those figures are from the old America Sings attraction- and that attraction has been gone for quite awhile now. So I'm guessing they are pretty old themselves, and the humidity doesn't help out either.

    I'm so glad that the screen is gone, but the owl needs to be removed, too. And, I would also like to see the flash at the climactic drop either removed or made part of a lightning effect.

    Also, does anyone know the reason that the alien pictures at the exit of Space Mountain were removed? When Space Mountain received its photo service, the addition was handled in a very careful way.
    You can't do anything about the flash at the drop- it's built OUTSIDE of the attraction- disney can't do much there.
