    I make it a rule to never underestimate the intelligence of the average WDW visitor.

    Hey, has anyone been on El Grand Fiesta Tour?
    And how does it compare to the old El Rio Del Tiempo?

    I loved that damn boat ride!

    it is not that bad, but not as goos as the original IMO. The new one has been disneyfied (my definition- classic disney characters and elements were added to the ride) with a plot that donald has been lost in mexico and the other two of the three caballeros have to search for him. the marketplace scenes, ancient mexico, and others were deleted from the show, but some like the cliff diving and beach scene are still in the ride, but added donald to the scenes (like scuba diving in the water) the end scene in the city is very similar, but like the boat that said like santa maria has been changed to the three cabelleros.

    WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
    1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
    2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
    3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
    4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
    5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
    6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
    7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.

    I have a friend who has been to WDW and didn't know what Big Thunder Mountain is, and that's part of the MK skyline. I am not surprised people don't know about the rides in the World Showcase.

    The wand finally played a hand in seving a purpose - other than that of being an eyesore and the subject of public ridicule. Yay!

    ..tear the damn thing down as soon as possible, anyway!

    The Fiesta Tour w/the 3 Amigo's is much more fun and exciting than El Rio Del Dampo. It's just as scenic and culturally immersive as many of the former attraction's sets that either remain in place or are modified.

    I always step up to defend the dumb guys, having a bad case of BDGS myself (Borderline Dumb Guy Syndrome). There's a big difference between park knowledge and intelligence. It's easy for all of us pros to sit back and laugh at the dumb folks who come into the parks and are overwhelmed by all that we take for granted. But it's entirely possible for your average midwest family (or even a sophisticated Manhattanite) to not only NOT do their research, but to not even know that there was so much that needed to be researched (long sentence!!). They only find out after they've wandered into Fantasyland and spent the better part of a morning there that there are actually more parts to the MK than just Fantasyland. To say nothing about there being other parks than just Disneyworld (what many still call the MK).

    Now, it's an entirely different level of dumb guy that will ask a park employee what time the 3 oclock parade is. But just being confused, not realizing what all is in any given park - I'm betting that's far more normal than even we experts imagine.

    To your credit, all of this is quite true, danyoung. But, what fun would it be to maintain a rational, sane and compasionate attitude all the time? ...

    You are in for a real treat!

    Don't forget to check out the Maelstrom boat ride over at the Norway pavilion, and the agricultural boat ride at Future World's The Land pavilion - along with Soarin" of course..

    Viva la French cappucino! Can't wait to hit France. Would i be allowed to enjoy a cup during the film? I'll certainly enjoy touring the pavilian's grounds with a good hot brew in my hands.
