    The Dark Ride updates

    Am i the ONLY one excited about the dark ride updates mentioned in Al's article? It sounds like Tony is doing a Diet Coke New Fantasyland. A "complete reworking" of the forest scene in Snow? I am so excited!! Maybe the trees will lunge at us and have the original fog return? Also, i am ecstatic to hear Toad getting audio and visual updates. Yay for Toad!! And Alice too. OH lets hope that Pan and Pinoc get the TLC they deserve too! Thank you Tony for maintaining your 1983 MASTERPIECE.

    I'd like to see the flying TinkerBell return to Peter Pan Flight (she used to fly around the London and Neverland rooms - - but disappeared in 1983).

    And of course, they need a better ending for Snow White.

    More of the animated projections ala Alice would be great for all.

    I'm excited too. I wonder if they'll add the prince or anything to help explain the ending.

    My husbands vote is that they're going to make the forest scene less scary to try to encourage more Fantasyland bound children to ride, thus increasing ridership.

    He very well may be right. But I'm hoping for the opposite.

    We're really lucky to have all the dark rides at Disneyland (and yes, even Pooh, especially if they can up Pooh's ante).

    I hope that whatever effect they add really do add to the experience and storytelling. I wonder if they could be toying with a morphing queen or something since the turntable transformation has been MIA?

    I REALLY Hope they dont get rid of the bat mobile in Snow, because DL is the only one that still has it! (besides Tokyo)

    I like the ending for Snow White. It made me laugh really hard as a kid, and still does. Everytime the ride ends we go, "Happily Ever After? For who?! -busts up-" I hope they keep the ending.

    Yessss.... Updates..
    I really hope they don't do anything to make snow white less "scary"... growing up frequenting Disneyland, a part of my childhood experience was going on SW and getting little knots in my stomach... It's a part of the greatness of it all... It's a part of the experience...

    ORDDU: Hopefully the updates to Snow White's Scary Adventures should put an end to someone's ugly rumor--not so long ago--that this particular dark ride was about to be done away with. My sisters and I never believed this would happen, anyway, but Mr. Lutz's article makes for a more solid belief.

    Re: The Dark Ride updates

    I'd like to see major improvements in Snow White so I was happy to read that it's going to get some attention. I think Toad could use a little help as well.

    I'm not sure Alice, Pinnochio and/or Peter Pan really need any TLC. They all seem to be in good shape.

    Re: The Dark Ride updates

    I think were going to see a lot more digital video effects which the Snow White ride could really use. Since the footage can be trigged by the vehicles they can do segments that don't have to loop.

    - Magic Mirror with footage from the movie
    - Use a video projector to give the water area in the forest ripples (a good effect for peter pan as well)
    - Rain in the climax like in the movie.
    - scary shadows

    in Mr. Toad:

    - projected fire effects in "Hell"
    - enhanced explosion scene
    - enhanced fireplace scene at beginning of the ride

    Pooh:

    - projected leaf effect from Japan (very beginning)
    - add more life to dream scene
    - giant books with animated pages

    Peter Pan:
    - project water effects on "water" on floor areas and the waterfall you go through. Maybe they could do the waterfall like in pirates you go through
    - Tinkerbell projection
    - improved shadow of peter in the nursery
    - improved moon scene

    Pinocchio:

    - water projections in Monstro Scene
    - replace shadows in pleasure island scene
    - enhance donkey transformation
    - escaping pleasure island you see shadows of men with whips and boys turning into donkeys.

    I think we will also see more use of LED lighting and effects.

    Of course some of the figures need to be upgraded too. When toys you can buy in the stores move more then the figures in the dark rides you have a problem.


    What would you guys like to see improved?
