    And yah, MasterGracey summed it up more of what's wrong with it. all the show lights, the cieling is totally visible, and it just feels cheap. With such large show rooms, I want to be completely immersed into the 100 acre wood.

    But I think they can easily update all that if they really wanted to.

The doors most of the time are just painted on one big wall. Queue area not themed very well, bland and empty. Monitors in queue area are cheap CRT and it shows.

    Hated it... Plywood effects? No interactivity... Painted scenes... Child hood fear of bees... Only there to make an excuse for a shop at the end of the ride (Pooh makes more money than Mickey Mouse currently...)

    Compare this to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Monster's Inc...

    All I can say is, this got a green light and the Little Mermaid didn't? Travesty.

    ...
    Anyway to me, 1 & 2 are the main issues. It isn't a bad ride (my kids love it)
    But IMHO, it's a major disappointment from TDL's and even in comparison to MK's.

    I was hoping Monsters Inc ride would be housed in the Monsters, Inc. building from the film. That would be a fun little area surrounding it if they made it into Monstropolis.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I have absoultely no opinion of the Pooh ride.

    I do have a thought concerning it though.
    Why did they have to go cheap when building it?

    Peter Pan kicks a## on the Pooh ride.

    Why do I feel the need to comment?

    These are all good questions!

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I'm so happy to hear that I'm not the only one that destests the Monsters Inc. ride. It was done so cheaply. I could go on and on about what's wrong with it, but I won't. LOL

    I'm not saying the Mosnters Inc ride wasn't cheap. But compared to Winnie the Pooh, I think it's far superior. Mosnters Inc has at least one real animatronic (Roz), and numerous minimally-moving figures. Pooh just has a few minimally-moving figures.

    I just like the Pepper's Ghost effect in Pooh. That's about it besides the CBJ "shrine"

    But here's a question...is it better to create something half-a**ed, or not create it at all until it's done right? Just a question to ponder.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    My opinion of this ride is this: no matter what I see wrong with it, my girls would all absolutely adore it. I know that when I finally take them, they will ride and want to go back on it immediately. For me, that's what it's all about.

    However, I really do like the ride. If I went to the park and missed riding it, I wouldn't be too upset about it, but I enjoy it when I am riding it.

    Agreed, I love this ride! We hit it before or after Splash Mountain almost every time we go. The colors are amazing, and I like the flood waters and rain effects, and the pooh dreaming, and the ridiculously crazy room after he starts dreaming!

    Of course, I'm a major Pooh fan anyways, as you can tell...

    I can't really express why... but I just don't like MI as much as I do MAWP. Maybe Pooh captures the spirit better. I don't know.
