    Re: Fixin' the Escalator in the Land Pavilion

    Look. All I'm saying is that this country is full of enough oafs. It wouldn't hurt to take down the stinking moving stairs and walk a bit more! I'm mean really! How hard is it to walk a few more yards? If a person has a medical condition that requires that person to skip the stairs there is an elevator around the corner, because if you can't traverse stair you probably shouldn't ride the escalator...

    Also, my brother in law has cerebral palsy and can ride an escalator just fine, but stairs are very difficult for him. Thanks for being insensitive.

    Howdy aimster,

    Thank you for sharing this bit of wonderful news with us...I appreciate it. And thank you to whoever it was at Disney who finally fixed things...a running escalator is in keeping with the finest of Walt Disney traditions. There is hope...

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    I'd like to be in Texas for the Round-up in the Spring."

    Re: Fixin' the Escalator in the Land Pavilion

    I don't think everyone knows where the elevator is, or would be patient enough to wait for one considering sometimes it feels as if you have to wait five minutes. I do not know about the Disney elevators, but sometimes in general it may take a few seconds, or it will take a few minutes when I generally use elevators in other locations. I don't think people are patient enough for that if they would have to wait a few minutes, especially if there is a lot of people who need to use the elevator.

    Second of all, with amount of people at the parks I'm sure are a lot of people that have difficulty walking, not only people with disabilities, but people who are older in general, or people who may have difficulty with stairs in general, or people who have been walking around the park all day (which is everyone). People are tired, aching, having to deal with the kids, the heat, and walking all around the park all day. If they would have to walk up stairs, to some people it could feel as if they're climbing a mountain depending on who you are, or how long you've been there.

    So, I'm sorry, but "walk a few more yards"? It isn't as if they have been relaxing and sitting down all day. But of course, if it's not working I suppose they have no choice.

    Also, the escalator when running smoothly would be going at a steady pace, which means it swiftly gets people up and down the stairs, which helps with traffic.

    Dude, have you tried using that elevator lately? I hope you've packed some extra patience, because the line for that thing is seriously in need of a FASTPASS machine.

    I visited The Land on two different days last week; one day the escalators were on, and the other day they weren't.

    Re: Fixin' the Escalator in the Land Pavilion

    Actually I went to disney in 2005 and my little brothers sandle got stuck in the esculator, it part of his sandle into the esculator and would have pulled his foot in if my dad hadnt wrestled with it. Disney offered us a replacement set of sandles but didnt mention about closing the esculator or any other steps to stop someone getting hurt ie a small child.

    its good to hear they are closing down esculators
