    Dianeyland? Where's that? LOL

    I envy you. Wish my eyes were the right color...

    You know... It's *that* other DL park besides TDL, that makes seasoned WDW guests go.. "wait a sec...why isn't our park as nice as that one over there in CA?"

    Note to self... Get a few rides in next weekend...

    This might be good for wdw, but changing dl? I have to see how it looks before my judgement.

    WDW's version will see far fewer changes, if only because it is half the length of DL's ... They have more room to play in Anaheim.

    But WDW's is in much worse shape to begin with, so hopefully it will sparkle and every effect will work when this is done (like Small World).

    I am looking forward to riding both versions this summer ... after trying out the Paris version this spring.

    Am I wrong to think that this change will ruin Disneyland's version but as far as WDW's verison goes, I don't think anything can ruin what they have already.

    Thank god for small (oy) favors. Regardless of size I LOVE WDW's and some of the full scale changes they want to make I'm not happy with. I'd love a Jack Sparrow in the treasure room. Other than that...no I'm not a fan of what they want to do.

    Ahem... WDW's version will see major changes, but there won't be as many as in Disneyland because of the ride length.

    i am looking forward to the changes from what I have heard of them so far. this ride is 30 + at wdw and was an afterthought at that. besides didn't walt say that DL was meant to change and not be constant? and whatever brings in the masses... as long as it's done well.

    The more they change of WDW's version THE BETTER! If it was up to me I'd keep the ride closed longer and make it as good as it possibly can be.

    You're not serious, TDLFAN and anyone who disagrees with this upgrade. This is fantastic! I have been going to Disney parks for 30 years and work at WDW for 15. Ride upgrades are usually always great, as proven with Haunted Mansion Xmas and Xmas Small World. AND Tiki Birds WDW! (please....let the boring, extra long, 17 min, guests walk out every show Disneyland RIP...you'll say you love it, but, you really dont. And your kids are bored when you go in, mentally wishing mommy and daddy would take them to Dumbos or Buzz Lightyear)

    If that's the case, why does my kid ASK to go to the Tiki Room?

    " If that's the case, why does my kid ASK to go to the Tiki Room?"

    Easy: he/she needs wants to take a nap.

    Wow, I'm actually agreeing with you here (you know, except for the whole if-you-don't-agree-with-me-you're-wrong part).
