The only reason I noticed the roof.......normally it would be dark black roof, but where the broken panels were you could see normal lighting from outer part of ride building. Not being that picky, just curious. I love Its A Small World, thats why I point this out. It would be cool to see a complete over haul/ refurbishment. Ok, for those that thought I was just being negative.......The subs looked incredible, I love the new rock, and the more of a sea side village look of area. Cant wait to ride.

Re: Its A Small World, but not well kept
IASW has been cursed since they moved the Rocket Rods control panels over there
As for the missing ceiling panels - at least one of them is right next to some of the kids hanging from the ceiling by a 'balloon', it just looks bad.
I'm more concerned with the lighting issues (there are a lot of turned off/burned out lights throughout the attraction), but it's not peak season yet, and there are major projects going on elsewhere at the moment (Splash Mt. anyone?).
I think if you take a look at what is going on now in both parks (and it is significant), you can get a general idea as to where refurbishment/new attraction budget has been spent. I am sure they will get to IASW, Hey, Pirates, yes Pirates had a sagging roof long enough to really make me uncomfortable until it's recent rehab for the 50th. At least they are addressing maintenance more responsibly now.
I'm sorry some think I'm nit picking, but in all fairness, I read this site a lot. I know I always see stuff about up keep at both parks. I think IASW, is an Icon. It should be treated as such. Yes I'm an APer. I'm very proud. I'm able to take my 4 year old daughter and my 2 year old son as much as I want with out going into debt. Wait ......Hotdog=6.00 soda=3.00 churro=3.00...........so much for the debt thing. LOL
