    Are the Teacups spinning again?

    Has anyone found out if the teacups are finished reburbing yet? Are they spinning again? I'll be going on Sunday anyway. Want to say goodbye to Mr. Lincoln, and see the floating Leota head!

    The Tea Cups were supposed to come back yesterday, but they won't operate them in the rain, so I doubt anyone has ridden them yet, except some lucky CM's who got to test them....

    I can report that they were back in place on Tuesday, but the refurb wall was still up.

    They had the teacups working on THURSDAY. As soon as I saw them working (knowing that they weren't supposed to be running until the next day) I ran over and jumped on (after getting off Matterhorn).

    THEY DO NOT SPIN FASTER!!!
    I repeat...

    THEY DO NOT SPIN FASTER!!!
    It's the same old story. After about 30 seconds everyone on the ride is just kicking back in the teacup, looking around to see if anyone could get their cup spinning...

    It appears to have been just a rumor.

    I'm honestly suprised they still keep the cups, since the whole idea is done at so many carnivals and parks now anyway. I know there a bit of a classic, but far better rides have been sent to Yesterland.

    I am confused. (Yes, a perpetual state.) Are y'all saying they spin, but just not fast?

    Well, if you want to get some fast spinnage, you can go to DCA for your fix. In the stupid "A Bug's Land", they have a Frances ride or whatever. It goes really fast. Like, to the nauseating point. Oh, and please don't look at the plates you're spinning on until AFTER you've ridden it.

    I don't care if they don't spin that fast. I guess I'm just a geek that loves to be in that area and just hear the music. When I go on that ride, I usually don't like it to spin, it's just fun having it just whirl around.

    You can get some great centrifical force going along with the spinning on the Hat Dance. Nice and loose.

    I went today, and it sure seemed like they were spinning faster. Of course, the rain from yesterday may have helped to lubricate them or something.

    Cant say I am too surprised. Disney has repeatably lied time and again about things like this, that they have absolutely ZERO, zilch, nada credibility with me personally anymore. I never ever beleive a word they say now until I see it for myself, never again am I going to implicitly trust them on anything. They are going to have to earn any kind of trust back, and its going to take a LOT for them to do that. spinless cups is spineless managment.
