It seems on these forums, you want change to happen to Disneyland, yet when a change occurs, you feel it's too much, and pretty bad. Not everyone here does it, but many people do.
First, lets go back to Tom Sawyer Island's refurb. Disney was just trying to get people to a part of the park that not many went to anymore. When it was written that a pirates overlay was going to occur, many went mad over it. What many failed to realize was that although they had a connection to TSI, kids these days aren't big into Westerns like adults were when they were kids. This is a new era!
Second, lets look at that new Star Tours rumor. For some reason, people aren't digging 3-D. Whats ironic, is people are also saying they want tomorrowland to be more futuristic. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 3-D viewing THE FUTURE?
My reasoning for why no one likes the changes? Because...well, they're changes. You ask for change, yet you only want change to things that aren't a childhood memory. Even when pirates was updated, some people weren't happy.
Now, people got their subs back, but now they want the people mover back. Well, it's probably never going to happen, but because it was a part of the past people remember, they want it back, whether Disney can do it or not.
What's my point? You have to let go of the idea that the Disneyland you remember will be staying forever. It won't. Changes WILL happen. Some for worse, some for better. Just, when these changes DO occur, don't bash them just because they got rid of something that was from your childhood which wasn't either popular or logical anymore!
