Okay, I have a bad feeling about this post.
I have just read the thread about new PeopleMover speculation. I was, too, excited, but then it hit me.
Is it worth the PeopleMover coming back? (waiting for )
The PeopleMover was a symbol of Tomorrowland for forty years, giving guests a beautiful vista of Walt's Magic Kingdom. But in today's age, will it breath new life into a fifty-year old park? It was replaced with the Rocket Rods to get new guests into the park, and clearly it didn't work. Yes, a return for the PeopleMover will be a victory for Disney fans all over the world, but will it get NEW guests into the park? It will sure bring in guests for who the PeopleMover is a large part of childhood Disneyland memories, but what about NEW guests, guests who have never set foot in Disneyland? The type of people Michael Eisner, Bob Iger, Jay Rasulo and yes, Matt Ouimet, want in the Disneyland Resort.
All new attractions are opened at Disneyland with getting new guests in the park in mind. And most work. But I cannot see a slow moving form of TRANSPORTATION bringing guests, old and young, into the park in the long run. I have heard many people going back on what they have said (these people would die for a PeopleMover return) that it is a huge slice of Disneyland nostalgia, but before it closed, they didn't visit it that much, like you would Space Mountain, the Haunted Mansion etc.
Please, do not revile me for my views. I would love your thoughts though. And whatever you do, do not take my comments as an attack, because it would be brilliant to see the PeopleMover back in Disneyland, I am trying to say I cannot see a suitable reason (from Disney's point of view, the people who can make it happen) to bring it back.
