    It’s a good show, and if it actually gets some much needed upgrades, definitely consider to try and see it. A very good medley of music. I personally think they should add some newer Disney music in too, but that’ll probably not happen anytime soon.

    One of my fav MK attractions. But it does badly need an update. The 3D doesn't work well anymore unless you're in the center towards the back.

    Be careful what you wish for. A switch from film to digital doesn’t always mean better.

    My last viewing you could see tons of scratches and even film splices in the first two minutes, but by the second scene it looked great. Granted I was in the middle towards the back lol.

    Yes, you had the optimum spot where the 3D is fine. If you're off to the side just a bit the 3D becomes fuzzy and double imaged. So I hope the conversion works better than it did for Terminator. That was a bad one.

    The first and last scenes have aged really poorly for some reason: blurry, scratched, phasing issues. Watched this a few times this year and they consistently looked way worse than the rest of the film. I wonder why that is.

    Looking it up on Wikipedia. I remember the Lion King show before it and I must have walked past this about 20x times.

    Best of any traditional 3D show around imo.

    NOOOOooooo! It's not the same!

    There's doesn't have the different sizing theater screen, so you may as well watch it on Blu-ray at home at that point.

    Speaking as if the Tiki rumor is accurate.... We have been down this road before with the attraction. There is a precedent to compare it to....

    Moana is a great IP to use, but it should be its own thing, not shoehorned.

    Okay so the Bears are doomed then.

    *sigh*

    This is not the comforting post they think it is.
