    Which, if Any, Attractions Are Too Short, and Which Are Too Long?

    By attractions, I mean those that are ride-through or walk-through, or some combination thereof, as well any and all theater presentations.

    Peter Pan should be a tad longer, as should Pooh (maybe that would fix part of it). As far as shorter, It's A Small World. With the same song and same concept over and over and over and over...the world isn't small enough.

    I guess all of the fantasy rides are way to short. And the endings seem almost comical. One second your in this dark, evil part on snowwhite then 5 seconds later its happy music and your done. Same with Mr toad. Pinnochio is the only one i think finished right.

    As far as what should be shorter, the river boat in my opinion.

    To paraphrase Roger Ebert's comment about movies: No good attraction is too long, no bad attraction is short enough.

    I like that.

    Dumbo and Peter Pan are the two I feel I don't get the "bang for my buck." The lines are often so long and the ride is so short.

    Many attractions would benefit by using the queues as walk-through expositions and resolutions. The ride-through portion of an attraction should be reserved for the action, and, specifically, the conflict, in a story.

    I agree. I said something to the CM working Snow, and she said :it's her SCARY adventures, not her life. I think it's stipid too.

    I haven't been on SNOW WHITE in a while and I remember it being extremely short. Anyone know how much room is in that thing to get more ride time in there? Wondering if it's doable.

    I've always felt that the current of the water in Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a Small World is too slow, while the the flow in Splash Mountain is too fast.

    Don't know about IASW and POTC, but I agree with your assessment of Splash. I knew only the MK version for years before I finally got on the one out here. It goes too fast to enjoy much of the scenery and AAs.

    Peter pan is wayyy too short for the length of the line you stand in.
