This ride looks great, yet it's being sneered at as a 'D-ticket' ride that took too long to build on certain Disney fansites. I can't wait to check it out!


Could somebody please explain how a mine train, which is essentially a family coaster, could be a D-ticket ride? It does not compute...

^Themeing, plain and simple.

If you take two identical rides, place one in a field, and the other is massively themed, the themed one would be more desirable. So, its higher on the scale.

The whole ticket scale could be said that its based off of demand and quality, not the cost of the attractions. Even though the whole thing is silly and subject to personal opinion anyways so its really a moot point.

Vekoma Mine Trains provide a good example. Here's the mine train at Walibi Belgium.

Here is the Vekoma Mine Train at Hard Rock Park.

I think the difference is pretty clear. Which one would you rather ride? I'm guessing that the "swinging" mine cars will be the kicker for the WDW ride, along with the show scenes.

The one in Hard Rock Park looks pretty sparse!

So the nay-sayers think that the theming will be sub-par, resulting in a less desirable ride. I don't know, those trains look good to me! I love the lanterns and the swinging will be extra fun.

I'm really looking forward to this coaster. From what I've read, it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fine for my entire family. We've pushed back our next trip to WDW twice so we can get to experience this.

I've heard at least one person complain that the books should not be in their original (non English) languages because the theme of MK is "Americana". I totally disagree. Fantasyland isn't Americana at all. Last I looked we don't have castle's like you'd see in the middle of the park, Snow White, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, etc, AREN'T American stories.

Anybody have a problem with this or is this yet another overraction by Disney nerds?


And how many of those stories were actually created by DISNEY?

But seriously shouldn't the comment about how the books should be English be in the GP thread instead of here?
