Space Mountain Disneyland

I can see why a reasonable person would think that way. The storyline is more cohesive.

You'd still be wrong, but not unreasonably so. ;)

Besides DL has more trees...or something.

All I remember of Splash Mountain was getting soaked and it only being 60 degrees outside. I was told I wouldn't get very wet.

^Which one?

Yah...Pirates at DL. 'nuff said. Best (non coaster) ride ever! And that Matterhorn? Yaaaah baby!

MMM, Splash Mountain. I think I have 2 spins on each one, and they were all spaced really far apart so I can't really recall which I definitely like better. Obviously the differences are a bit more nuanced then the ones on Pirates or Space Mountain.

Are the films on Soarin' the same? I'm thinking the end of DL's wouldn't make much sense at EPCOT, which I haven't ridden.

The Soarin' films are identical. Despite the thematic problems with a single-state film in a pavilion dedicated to "the land", it's easily Epcot's top draw, and has been since it was installed.

So you really fly over Disneyland at Disneyworld? You think they could have at least reshot that bit.

Nope, that would cost Disney money and they don't like to spend it if they don't have to. Plus it was intended to be that way because it was during Disneyland's 50th Anniversary, that Walt Disney World Resort for some reason also happened to be celebrating. But if you are wondering, even though Disneyland and Magic Kingdom Park are setup differently, about 90% of the guests don't even realize they are looking at Disneyland or know they are flying over California. Also most people don't even notice it is Christmas time either and notice the Christmas Parade on Main Street USA or the Christmas decorations on "It's a Small World". By the Way SOARIN' and I believe SOARIN' Over California are another attraction AMEC Dynamic Structures manufactured for WDI.

More likely....Disney wanted a Soarin' in Florida FAST. That's not usually a Disney strength. It was amazingly popular (and I'm happy to know why...that was COOL).

So in order to get one in FL within five years, LOL, they cloned the CA one. Would be kinda surprised if they weren't working in the background on another film for the same ride, though. Maybe for use at *other* Disney parks overseas.

Cheap, that they don't do.

Definitely. There's always a line for that thing, even longer than that for the somewhat-unreliable Test Track. Mission: Space hardly ever has a line.

Or "managed". ;)

Also, I believe we've discussed this before, but I honestly think most enthusiasts give GP folks less credit than they deserve. And would they realize it's DisneyLand)? Sure. The entire film is in California. Just because Miss Teen USA had some comments about "The Iraqs" doesn't mean 90% of the country is that ignorant!

If they notice, they don't care.

I don't care either. It's a wonderful attraction, and I'm happy to have one in Florida, because it's an easier place for me to visit than California.
