    Re: Fantasyland update: Four new updates before april!

    If Pan goes down for a long refurb I'd like to see them replace the load with "always moving" and moving sidewalk version at WDW. Its much prettier to look at while in the cue and I doesn't have the constant clack clack of the boats breaking and restarting and breaking again.

    Re: Fantasyland update: Four new updates before april!

    I haven't been on Peter Pan in years, mostly because the line is always ridiculously long, the capacity is so low, and I never get there early enough to ride it before the lines stack up. Increased capacity would be nice, although I'm sure it's going to be a long line still. Oh well!

    This is wonderfull! 3 darkrides going down for rehab! And they JUST went down like 2 years ago for the 50th! Its good to see DL still cares. It just makes MK look more ghetto. Seeing FL last summmer for the 50th, must have been the way it looked on May25th, 1983, and im glad to see that the dark rides will have work done to keep them bright, trippy, and glowing. I hope SNOW and PINOC also go down too!

    Im not a fan of the WDW version because it is an omni mover version. I perfer the multi speed version in DL, even with the longer lines.


    WDW didn't seem personal enough... but maybe I am just thinking that because I like DL so much?

    They would have to change a lot in order to make Pan multi row. It would be nice, but I do not believe this is going to happen. When I ran into the Engineer on Pan last year, he wasn't thinking of doing that design, but that could of changed since then.

    I think the load area is too short for that. Not enough room for hesitation and error, as compared to Haunted Mansion. Also might require additional cast members for safety.

    It's possible that multiple parties of two will now be in the same boat during peak operating hours.

    As already mentioned, I've always been on Pooh with other guests, but that sucker is huge.

    If I recall, WDW only has two cast members on the loading platform. There is one loader, and one person right at the edge where the boats go up in the air.

    I personally donít like WDW because the OMNImover system makes the ride less personal. I like the boats further apart.

    I donít think I have ever seen them put more then one party on pooh. But maybe thatís because I don't make it over there often.


    I find it funny that a thread containing updates coming in April gets more replies about something that wont happen till next year. I guess that answers the question about which attraction people like the most!
