    Just a fun fact for those who might not know: Disney uses plastic aquarium plants to foliage many of their models. The tree of life model used thousands of such plucked leaves. :)

    I'm still so curious where all the money for this project went. So much money spent for what we're getting. It just doesn't add up. And I can't believe there isn't a 2nd spinner ride in the land to balance it out. Other than that I think it will be cute. Just wish all the things that were cut would have stuck.

    Yes, I think the Disney mom's crowd will like the land. It sure seemed like it was value engineered to death though. The original plans weren't a whole lot, but they were more immersive than this fairly bare bones version.

    You say that the original plans were more, but there really wasn't much. The only big thing we can point to is Woody's Round-up, which likely would've only been a M&G anyway.

    The rockwork would've just been unnecessary imo without actual show scenes on the ride. Sometimes you've just gotta call a spade a spade - Slinky is nothing more than an exposed "junior launch coaster", as Mack describes it.

    I said, "the original plans weren't a whole lot, but they were more immersive than this fairly bare bones version". I was calling a spade a spade in a nice way. :):lol:

    I think Toy Story will benefit from being exposed. Guests won't really be able to overhype themselves before getting on the rides like they will for F&F.

    I was wondering. I was beginning to think Andy was growin' dope.
