    The worry is if it’s not enough. How do you retrofit AC to this system?

    I mean they'd probably have to buy new Gondolas, which means it won't happen. It makes no sense that they didn't buy them with AC

    Imagine all the back and butt sweat that's going to accumulate on those benches from all the riders. Might need to start designating this as Disney's newest water ride.

    didn't we have this discussion several pages ago, and everyone told me "it's no big deal there is no A/C". Ok Peeps. Ok.

    You won't find me on one of those in the middle of August/September. My car A/C works just fine.

    Except for HHN no way I am in the parks during August, September but if people can stand the park heat a 5 min ride won't kill them

    This is like reporting from something from a year ago and calling it "news".

    It really shouldn't be a big deal as long as the air flow works like it should. Most people are making it a much bigger deal than it is.

    In Hong Kong's climate (similar to Orlando), they have very similar gondola's, no AC and it's a much longer ride and it's a daily commute for many. It works fine. Could they have bought them with AC? Sure. Probably would've been the better choice for overall GSAT. But as long as air flows in and out like it should, the air will actually feel cooler than the actual temperature outside.

    Yea, but a few weeks ago Jim Hill reported that it would in fact have air conditioning, causing many blogs to report that. I think that had a lot to do with this story, essentially refuting it, and confirming what we all already figured last year.
