I wish they'd include some newer scenes of more recent movies.
I'm not a fan of the pre-show video. I thought it was perfect.
There are some newer movies in the post-show, like Guardians.
I think Disney know adding new scenes to older rides won't make more guests visit it more. The scenes with the actors in could be updated. Just look at the Carousel of process,Universal of energy,Muppets 4D,Indy Jones stunt show there been the same since my first visit in the mid 90's . There's only 1 show that has been updated after the 4 visits and that's the hall of presidents.
Century III 's comments are disturbingly true. "Let's not have all our eggs in one Frozen basket" appears to be the message and it's a chilling warning ( pardon the pun). I think the franchise is nice and it's a topical money spinner but overdoing it can cause resentment and eventual lack of interest.
Also , for me, the essence of the Great Movie Ride is one of nostalgia rather than merely promoting the most recent releases. The other, more compelling argument, is in it's title. The movies being celebrated should be, by definition, "Great". You earn that by being considered such by generations of film lovers over a period of time. Frozen, if it stands the test of time, will get it's chance in a few years from now but maybe not just yet.
Seriously? The only Frozen thing that has to do with this is a quick little clip in a slide show of great movies....And it is a really popular movie and deserves to be there It obviously doesn't deserve a whole scene, but I mean come on, now you are just trying to hate Disney.
Trying to hate Disney ??
I don't think anyone on this Site hates Disney. It's just different opinions that's all.
It's what makes it interesting.
We rode it Saturday and while Osborne's commentary added to the ride some, I found that his narration wasn't always able to be heard over the music and SFX around us, especially his closing remarks as you transition back to unload under the screens. There's just something off in the timing of some things yet.
One thing I will say is that it evens out the experience some. The guides now have less lines that are more color commentary like in nature than anything while still being pretty much the same lines they had before. It dulls it a bit if you have a great performer as your guide, and levels off the lows if you've got someone who's not that great.
It's an incremental improvement. Nothing phenomenal, but it does add a bit to the ride.
