Is Disney making modifications to the attraction so that if/when it gets stuck in a similar situation that a handicapped person would be "evacuable" (*wink*) at the lcation where the ride is stopped? That would seem to suggest that a continuous ride like IASW would have to undergo fairly major renovations in order to be able to get a wheelchair-bound patron off from any conceivable sopping-point on the ride.

I think it's the Magic Kingdom version where the whole building is flooded; at Disneyland you just have to watch your step when exiting...also the guide posts under the Disneyland boats should protect them from capsize...

(sorry, I couldn't resist)
