    Some random questions...

    1. Why did they close down the motor boats? I vaguely remember riding them when I was very little and there being Gummi Bears stuff in it...so what was their reasoning for shutting it down?

    2. Why is Ursula no longer in Fantasmic! anymore? The last time I saw her in that was probably like 1998...or somewhere around there. I just remember it being so cool! So why did they get rid of her?

    ok. that's all I can think of now. I was just curious about those things. hope you guys can help me out! Thanks!

    Here's a site as to about the Motor Boats http://www.yesterland.com/motorboat.html

    And as far as I know about Ursula, it became very expensive to maintain and so they took it out.

    (And here's where I come in )

    Check out my youtube, I got a small clip of her in Fantasmic.

    Yeah, too expensive to maintain... got a hole in her inflatable tentacles or something like that. Didn't want to pay for a new one.

    Sell her on eBay. Disney would get money!
