    Re: Laugh Floor Soft Opened (apparently permanently?)

    Let's look at it from this perspective... how does it measure up to what was there before?

    In all aspects, it SUCKS compared to Timekeeper. But it's a decent experience that I'd go see when there is no wait. The problem with Timekeeper was the fact that I'd have to wait 17 minutes to see the show, not that I didn't want to see it. And the 5 min. preshow for Timekeeper was interesting. So I'd wait about 10 minutes for Timekeeper at most, leaving that 7 minute period where I'd pass it by. With this new thing, there's no way I'd ever wait more than five minutes. The show is only every twenty minutes. Which basically means I'll see it 25% of the time... given that there is no wait.

    Is it fun to do? Sure! Will I do it over and over? Heck no.

    We seem to have forgotten the reason to make a good attraction. Disney needs to make good attractions so people will WAIT for them. This is why FastPass is such an evil concept. Attractions are built to raise the capacity of a park. Capacity goes up when guests are waiting in line for a short amount of time, which should never rise above 30 minutes. For a park to achieve that balance is the ultimate goal. A wait time of 5 to 30 minutes for every attraction, with someone always in line, and the attraction always filling up. Shows like Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor go entirely against this concept, simply by not having a preshow that is long enough to keep people in line. It also reduces the capacity of Timekeeper, because it adds seats. Not just little seats, but gigantic seats. The attraction is NOT thought out well.

    Thank you, Dr. Channing, for pointing out the main flaw of FastPass that I have not figure out myself. That being said, I'll still probably use it.

    In any event, I also agree about Disney needed to create attractions worth waiting for. As someone who has not been to a park in the last five years, what I see them popping out isn't even getting me to WANT to go to the park as I did when DAK opened. And even then, it was mostly out of curiousity and a fanatic interest in the novelty of the idea of such a business venture. ("It's not a zoo! It's a theme park based on animals!")

    But now? Nemo is cute, but nothing I'd want to spend money planning a trip there. Monsters Inc. is so polorized that I'm not even able to form an opinion on it let alone an opinion on if it is worth planning a trip out. In fact, most of the offerings from the Florida property are not all that impressive to me from the photos and videos I've seen (free advertisement for Disney) on all the fan sites I visit! Not even the Pirate Princess Fireworks show!!

    DLR and TDR, on the other hand, do have several things that make me want to check them out in person after watching the videos on fan sites, like the original Fantasmic! or Remember... and Pooh's Hunny Hunt or the various event shows at Tokyo that last only for three months at the most. That, in my opinion, is what makes or breaks an attraction. If it makes someone like me want to actually see it in person and not content with the 100MB Hi-Res video file.

    Kevin's article can be found here:

    I was actually more impressed than I expected to be with the set-up. going through the grand portal into Monstropolis, etc... that's how I wish the Monsters Inc ride was like in DCA.

    Reading about the actual attraction though was pretty painful. Jokes by themselves isn't enough of a draw. Jokes with animatronic animals on a river boat adventure... that's how to do it.

    I thought Kevin pretty much nailed things on this attraction.

    It wasn't as bad as I had feared. But it still wasn't good at all ... and it just reeked of cheap, space-filler.

    It also continues the cartooning of the MK ... Buzz I could tolerate, but Stitch and this Non Funny Laugh Club just have no reason for being.

    From the first concept to the folks who sold it to the execs to the execs who said 'sure, let's spend XXX on this' ... it was one mistake after another.

    The MK needs new attractions that wow ... not ones that elicit 'that was OK, you kids want to ride Space Mountain now?'

    Funny you should bring this up. Just yesterday, I was showing some of my friends who never saw any of the TDR offerings some ride videos on YouTube. After showing them four rides (two originals for the resort and two Japanese version of rides found here in the states), they were more impressed with TDR's rides than they were with the rides they were on or have seen here in the states.

    One person went so far as to say StormRider looked like a better version of Soarin', and another said that they wouldn't be ashamed to ride TDL's version of Winnie the Pooh despite the fact that it is a kid's ride.

    I think that's the kind of thing that is missing from MK's latest add-ons. So, yeah, I agree with you.

    Because Pooh's Hunny Hunt isn't a kids ride, unlike the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Diesn't doesn't seem to realize that if they cater to people who are 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, and 50+ that people will try and make multiple trips instead of the one trip before the kids are all over 10 and "too old".

    Thus far, no! This is one of the biggest problems.

    I just hope he can take TDLFAN's brutal critisism. I have yet to see a CM who posts on these kind of forums take anything he says without becoming aggressively defensive.

    if i were a cm i would take it that way too. the cms I have met on this board work hard at their jobs and I for one would get tired of hearing complaints all the time.
