I think they pretty much have closed Imagination with what they have done to the pavilion. It doesn't sound like many people bother going into the pavilion anymore :(



I do........

I think you are one of the few...and I will go when I get there again too but for me it just lacks the same imagination it once had.

Me too ~ that was an awesome smell! When the attraction was first cannibalized I rode and sniffed deeply in that section since I thought, or maybe imagined, I could still smell a faint whiff of the old Journey :( People probably thought I was weird :shock: :lol: except! I was totally alone in the queue, and my vehicle!! :?

I would have to agree with figmentaholic... I wouldnt stop going unless I was broke or Disney went out of business

Although the constant price increase is still rather annoying. I'm just glad that I can make monthly payments on my Annual Pass and not pay the whole amount upfront.

Well seeing how I am addicted to everything Disney, it would have to be either a coma, or death for me to no longer go to any of the parks.

You know, this thread should have been a poll!

What would make you stop going:
1. death
2. coma
3. bankruptcy
4. wild horses couldn't drag me away.
5. ??

The only thing that would ever make me stop going to DL would be if DL got nuked!

If Donald Trump ever bought out Disney, took over running the company, and then made WDW "Donald Trump World" instead - that could do it...

(who am I kidding? If he didn't change the parks, I would probably still go...)

I would go, if only to ride the newly redesigned "Mad Combover" ride, where you sit atop a crazy looking toupee that spins around in circles, and attempt not to hurl.

If Disney turned into Universal Studios....and instead of me explaining what I mean...I suggest everyone go to Disney one day...go to Universal the next...and then I believe you will see what I mean!

Well, if Disney starts charging for Fast Passes, they'll have taken that one step closer to becoming Universal Studios!

I don't love all of the changes that have taken place over the years, but I would only stop going if the resorts and parks ceased to exist.

Oh, god.. the day they replace Paul Frees with someone more 'hip' (e.g. Johnny Depp!) as your 'ghost host'. Or any of the awesome Disney legend ride narrations with someone like Jack Black!


;) Only kidding. I'd be steaming, but I wouldn't stop going. :lol: Could you imagine if they did that, though? :shock:

Really, c'mon, Johnny Depp would be way too expensive. It would have to someone cheaper. Probably someone like Chris Rock or Kathy Griffin... :wink: :mrgreen:
