The GC and the Dino's were slated for dismantling years ago, but thankfully, Jurassic Park hit the theatre's and a renewed interest for Dino's hit the market. They were saved. Only time will tell for how much longer.
The entire area could use a HUGE rehab and update. They need new lighting, new animatronics, and New speakers on the trains! Those speakers are loud and... really bad quailty. The entire Grand Canyon scene could be so much cooler. It's still a cassic and I enjoy it, it could just use a much needed rehab.
If I ride the train at all, it's when I'm leaving the park. And if I'm in a hurry, I will walk from Fronteirland over to Tomorrowland, just to ride the train out of the park and still be able to see the Grand Canyon/Primeival World diorama.
My mom never took me on it as a kids. I went on it for the first time when I was 14 or so. It was life-changing!!
I will be coming to Disneyland in July, and the dioramas on the train, are a definite MUST SEE on my list of things to do. I have never been to Disneyland before, or the Grand Canyon, so I hope they keep these dioramas in tact, at least for the anniversary.
My Next WDW Vacation is Aug 18, 2014 - Aug 23, 2014 Pop Century Resort
I hope they never remove the GRAND CANYON Diorama ever. And leave the old sound system alone(good memories). This would be tragic to remove this.
It gives a nostalgic feeling.
