I've been reading old threads here and on other disneyland websites, and I always see people wanting the Peoplemover back.
That's all well and good, but maybe we miss it so much that we're making it seem better than it really was.
Riding the Peoplemover was never exciting. I don't mean FAST. I mean, it wasn't exciting. There was almost nothing to see in some areas, and the only interesting tunnel was America Sings/Super Speed/Tron. The ride really was blah after that.
I didn't necessarily hate that ride, it's just, well, we might want it back more because it's gone--and we always want what we don't have.
The white peoplemover cars were, i'm sorry, boring. They blended in almost perfectly with the landscape and if I remember correctly, they had no lighting at night. The white cars against white buildings chugging along at 5mph wasn't really a sense of motion or atmosphere.
I would say they needed to bump the speed up to a breezy 10mph (it wouldnt stress the track THAT much, would it?) and make the vehicles colorful and tell a story--but NOT A PIXAR Ride.
