    We like it.

    On my husband's and my first trip together (when we were still dating), we ducked into it to get out of a hot day and found it delightfully empty. We were literally the only ones on the ride. And while I enjoy the ride itself, part of the reason I love it is the memory of some stolen kisses that we shared on it.

    I do love the vintagey-ness of it, and I love it because it's so much what Walt imagined for his parks. And that darn song stays in your head for the rest of the day, but it's just so catchy, you don't mind! :wink:

    I do think they could update the ending. What would be perfect in my eyes is if they could make the room that it ends in now another decade room (like, say, a 90's room), and add another, more modern room for the ending, but I doubt they have room for that.

    I can't imagine WDW without it! I know many folks prefer bigger, faster, higher. But I enjoy the simple things too.

    Love! Although I definitely agree that the last scene could use some updating, the ride itself is one of my favorites. I'm all for the new rides, but I'm always a little sad when an old ride disappears...So I'm glad that this ride hangs in there. And I'm freakishly obsessed with the song. For weeks before and after any trip to Disney, I walk around singing it, somehow unable to stop it. It's in the older rides where I get the classic Disney magic and I love it.


    Even miracles take a little time.

    Maybe I need to give it another try this year









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Love it and ride it every night I can I find the transition to the last scene a bit jarring since they've updated it hugely so there's a massive gap but that's nit picking. I always have a smile on my face after riding tta and the carousel. Simple relaxing enjoyment

    I adore it and usually ride it early on, and sometimes more than once in my trip. I love the song and I end up singing it during the entire trip.
