  1. “New Nighttime Experience Coming to Disney Worlds Hollywood Studios” is all I keep seeing. No mention of where we are to go for this “experience?” Will it be projected onto the front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, or will it be shown somewhere else?
    Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway better be the most Amazing attraction any of us have ever seen! The fact that we had to lose TGMR for it just kills me….

  2. Though still in denial that the Great Movie Ride has been unceremoniously dumped on top of the scrap heap of WDW history (nothing a freudian shrink and a few dozen Rorschach ink blots can’t cure. They all look like a mouse to me. Except that one that looked like a geodesic dome), I remain hopeful about its replacement.

    What I will miss most about the Great Movie Ride is that it was one of the last attractions exclusively for us old geezers. I sighed with nostalgic reflection when my kids would say, “who’s that old cowboy on the horse talking about pilgrims?” Or “what the hell does, here’s lookin’ at you kid, mean?” (And yes, my kids do occasionally use profane sentence enhancers ……and smoke the occasional unfiltered Lucky Strike). I took great comfort watching the montage of movie clips at the end, knowing that my kids couldn’t name more than a few of them. “Who’s Stella daddy, and why is that guy screaming her name?” A private viewing just for me and Father Time. So to you, Great Movie Ride, I say “Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light……”
