    At least the Air conditioning smells nice. And the ride ends in a candy shop so that you can eat and eat and have an even harder time fitting in the seat the next time.

    Not entirely true; in the rain scene at WDW you feel as if you're floating, and of course during the Tigger scene (missing in DL), you hop. I like both versions and definitely prefer the outside start at DL.

    Actually, we do have a Tigger scene, it's just miniscule compared to WDW's.

    I like what Kevin Yee said, not every ride needs to be an "E Ticket", and for me Pooh fits the bill like a glove. I too like pooh and every time we go on it my daughter gives me a big hug so we'll go on it again. What can I say I'm easy, when she becomes a teen I'm toast.

    I usually agree with on a lot of things, but I think Pooh is in the right local. I would find away to squeeze the Jamboree back into critter country that would mak ethe place complete.

    That Kevin Yee is one smart cookie! In everyone's life, a little Pooh must fall.

    I like pooh. i'd just like to see it fleshed out a bit. Since it is a billion dollar brand. It'd be nice to see them put a continuous investment into one of their bigger properties. For example, during the annual extended refurb they could:

    Uncle Bob, you crack me up.

    1) Add an animatronic every year! Mr. Potato Head cost about 1 million to make. If they replaced a static figure with a nice AA once a year the ride would gradually get better without too much expenditure. Sice Pooh products are some of teh top-selling a better ride means more riders and more merch sales.

    2) Eliminate the plywood. Same idea. Remove some of the plywood in favor of 3d sets. If you change a little at a time, you can absorb the cost more easily over the long-run.

    While its far from one of my favorite rides, my youngest (who is 6) loves it. If she's happy, then Im happy.
