I got to go on super driver today, it was a lot of fun and the post show area looks really good. The body builder requires two people and I didn't have another person with me so I did not do it. The globe in the middle is really cool and has different things appearing on the screen including a message to stay tuned for a re-imagined spaceship earth. I can't wait til they put everything in there it is a nice use of the space. My friend also told me that when they redo spaceship earth they will begin taking your photo on the ride, I think that would be interesting and will see if it happens.
I think it's been a good 10 years since there was something there? I could be exagerating but it feels that way. Can't wait to see that next month.

I am so excited about this long overdue rehab. I've heard rumors for awhile now that they were going to gut it and make something new...plussing the attraction and providing an interactive element (a la Horizons) seems a great idea to me.
And I am so excited to see that part of the postshow area is open now...I am glad to see that Siemens is serious about fixing up this attraction.
Now, as a side note, I (scarily) had a nightmare about the SE rehab two nights ago (I wish I were making this up, but it seems now I have nightmares about WDW rehabs...no wonder my family thinks I'm crazy).
I rode the darn thing, and the scenes were replaced with shabby looking AA figures (I specifically remember Peter Pan and Meet the Robinsons...I know) and get this, painted wooden cut outs of characters (thankfully Kevin Yee, things haven't gotten that bad yet .
I kept riding it over and over so I could complain to the CMs that they ruined it.
Then I woke up.
What's weird is that I swear over all that is holy that is a real nightmare I had. I've had nightmares where I go with my family and we don't get to do everything, or my family takes too long (thankfully, my sister also has these nightmares..so it's apparently not too weird), but this one really takes the cake.

Looks to be a much better use of space than The New Global Neighborhood (especially considering only a few of the postshow items are open now). If anyone wants to see pictures, a certain WDW forum that is MAGICal has some. Can't wait to see it in June/July (and I'm very happy to here that the ride won't be closing until after I leave).
