Well, all I can say is that in Florida, the hilights of the TOT ARE the lobby and the boiler room. The ride itself is short, but pretty cool. The fifth dimension scene in Florida is really cool, actually amazing with all the special (defects). But from what I've seen from the DCA version on the internet, the lobby is great, and I've read reviews about the boiler room that say it's better than Florida. The drop sounds the same as Florida, well controlled so it doesn't give you a heart attack! The thing that I enjoyed the most in Florida is all the subtle things, lots of props recreated from the original Twilight Zone series, like the dummy from the Cliff Robertson episode and the fortune teller machine from the William Shatner episode and lots more, they're hidden here and there and you really have to look to find them. From what I've seen of the DCA version, they have lots of the same touches, and I love the display case at the end with the dummies of some of the wierdest figures from the original show. So I think with all the budget cuts they've been through, you have to give it to to the WDI designers on this one for fighting the good fight and it's really what you'd expect from Disney (and you're hearing this from Mister Negative himself!)
As far as Pooh in (Critter Country?) is concerned I'm sorry, it's no excuse to tear out one of Disney's greatest attractions! You'll never see anything like it again in DL. And a cheap black-light ride belongs in Fantasyland with the rest of them, not on the edge of the Rivers of America. Someone has it out for all the great old stuff I think. When you look at America Sings being cut-out and the poor little characters being put into SPLASH like so many shadows of their former beings, what a waste! America Sings was one of the ultimate shows ever as far as animated figures goes and a great 20 minute experience my family and I did over and over! Wouldn't you all like to see it again? I sure would, it was great.
But they keep tearing things out don't they? Someday soon Disneyland is going to be just like Six Flags - kind of like DCA. What's happening!?
Look at what they did to Tomorrowland recently, let's see, two great attractions - the PeopleMover and CircleVision, GONE. Mission to Mars GONE. Subs GONE. Carousel of Progress? Gone yeears ago and replaced with what? America Sings! GONE!
What's next? Better yet what's left?
I think as they slash Disney employees they ought to start at the top instead of the bottom - and that goes for WDI as well. But then we know who's in charge don't we!?
