    Change "Small World" as much as you want!

    Who cares about Disney changing the ride? If Walt was alive, there would be changes, too. Heck, we might not even have rides like Indy or Space Mountain if he were alive...Nostalgia only can go so long...If everything stayed the same as 50 years ago, life would be different, not necessarily better. If it's not taking away to the show, it's cool. Please can we end the campaigns? They won't listen...

    Disney Bacon, go do what you want and let us do what we want. I'm sorry but it isn't your concern if we post a campaign against the changes, it isn't harming anyone.

    Uh, oh. Here we go...
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    Disney Bacon, if I were you I'd be prepared for a mob of unhappy IASW lovers. Although I agree with your basic outlook, I think IASW is an exception, and should be kept the same, because it is one of the only remaining pieces of the World Fair. With Lincoln practically gone (I'm sorry to say, I doubt he'll return) IASW and the dioramas seem to be the only attractions left.

    I find it insulting that someone tries to tell me what I should like and what I shouldn't like.

    Re: Change "Small World" as much as you want!

    ok, I'm not even realy a fan of IASW, but I know that Walt wouldn't alter the design of a ride made famous for it's visual style with characters who defy the original meaning AND look of The ride. It's NOT an improvement. And PLEASE STOP using the excuse of "Walt wanted things to change" crap. In alot of cases that argument makes sence but definately not in this time.

    edit: Walt's saying only apply's with improvments, and this isn't one

    It is a big deal because it seems like our freedom to talk here is being attacked. It's not cool.

    Re: Change "Small World" as much as you want!

    Disneyland IS (in some cases) a museum.
    Look at the Grand Canyon Dioramas--if those aren't museum than I don't know what is.
    Whether you like or dislike Small World, you HAVE to admit that it has special signifigance. The artisitic value of the ride FAR outwieghs its interest "as a fun ride." What I don't get is WHY change it? Not like it is a dead ride. Always has a line a mile long. So why?
    Not to mention that the whole POINT of the ride was a message of unity--how does the Up with America sequence enhance this idea.
    The problem with Small World is simple--it needed up keep. The dust in that place. Shine it up, and perserve not only the art but the intent. Small World should be kept because it IS a muesum piece and in this case, Disneyland IS its muesum.

    PS--- someone go dust the grand canyon too please.
