    My question was purely hypothetical. I'm seriously not expecting Disney to change the direction of the PeopleMover. My poll was just an opinion thing out of curiosity. I already figured in that it would cost money to change the direction of it - money that I know Disney would never shell out for such a "minor" change.

    Considering Space Mountain blacked out all the People Mover windows in the recent refurb, I'm not sure it would make a big finale.

    I voted yes because it doesn't change the ride. It just changes the way we look at Tomorrowland....looking from a different perspective! I do hope though that they keep the consistent movement that allows a high capacity rather than travelling "eggs" or Rocket Rods.

    If it comes back, I don't care what direction it goes. I'll just be glad to have it back.

    I've thought about this too, and if the ride were starting and ending at the original location, keep it the same! But if it were beginning at the upperlevels of the arcade, then the change in direction wouldn't effect me as much, just as long as they pull all of these ideas off, right!

    just a reminder, the Incredibles Podmover idea is partially the result of the need to meet newer health and safety codes that cannot be grandfathered. Thanks a lot Rocket Rods.....

    Left/right, open/closed, rotating/non-rotating, I really don't care as long as they bring it back!

    I think it's all spectulation, too early to tell. But yeah, there has been talk of themeing the vehicles to the Pod vehicles of Syndrome's island in The Incredibles.

    How would you feel if the direction the PeopleMover ran was reversed? Instead of going towards Space Mountain and Star Tours first, what if it started going through Buzz first? This way Space Mountain could be a big finale!

    Just a thought...what do you guys think?

    What for? The ride itself isn't intended as a thrill ride, so is a BIG Finale necessary?

    It may not be intended to be a thrill ride, but I've always felt, personally, that ending the ride at Circle-Vision always left me wanting something better to end on. This way seeing the major attractions last would give me something even more to yearn for to go on after I get off of PeopleMover. And yes I know that BLAB is where CV was, but I don't find that attraction big enough, nor thrilling enough to be last. If it were more innovative or creative I'd say yes, but to me BLAB isn't a big deal.

    Also, it's human nature for most people to remember what they saw or heard last instead of first and then make opinions off of that last memory. So, with that said, shouldn't the final images seen on PeopleMover be something that truly sums up the world of motion known as Tomorrowland?

    Just my two cents.
