Wow! The votes and comments don’t lie. Quoting one reader, “Do not touch the PeopleMover! Or, I’m not coming back … ever!”
Or another, “I think this would be the final straw for me. If they got rid of PeopleMover, I would have to say goodbye to WDW.”
And, yet, another, “If they remove the PeopleMover, I will officially give up my Annual Pass and buy a Sea World Annual Pass instead!”
I have to tell you, I’ve never seen such a lopsided poll. Over 98% of you want the TTA to survive long into the future. 68% of you support “Leave it Alone”. Meaning, most of you feel that not even the smallest refurb is needed!
Take my advice, Disney, you better heed these results and listen to these voices. I read every comment posted on social media. The fans are fiercely passionate and even addressed you directly. Look …
“If they get rid of it, I may have to give up on Disney. The PeopleMover was the model of the transportation Walt had planned for EPCOT. That was the very type of transportation he had in mind. Don’t get rid of it Bob Iger!”
In addition, over the past few days, we saw multiple versions of the cry, “Bring it back to Disneyland!” Their version was closed in 1995. The Disney-verse is still a bit bitter, it seems. I told you, Disney. Better listen up! Here’s more …
“Eliminate?! Who dares speak such blasphemy?!” Or, “Keep it! It’s an icon. We need some nostalgia.” And, “Leave it alone! It’s a piece of classic WDW.”
There’s a lot more, my friends, trust me … “Leave it. Not everything needs to be modernized or improved. Some things are best left original and iconic.”
“There are some things that just need to be left alone. This is one!” Plus, “Nobody better touch my PeopleMover!”
Of course, you also provided some constructive ideas for improvement of the attraction, as well. Some really good elements of an overall rehabilitation “Project Plan”, I’d say. Like …
“Personally, I wouldn’t mind a bit more decor being added to the inside of the tunnels.” And, “Maybe add some pizzazz for what you see when you travel through the indoor parts.”
From a functionality standpoint, we saw this sentiment several times … “I love it. But, it is inaccessible for our family member who uses a wheelchair. I would hope any refurb would address that issue.”
In the end, my friends, I think it’s fair to say that you have made your opinions and feelings very clear to Disney, the Disney-verse, myself, and anyone else. In fact, we’ll let this reader sum it up …
“TTA is one of the most underrated Disney attractions. It gives you time to relax and provides you with a chance to see around Tomorrowland as well as glimpse views of the Castle … with your feet up. Take it out at your peril Disney”!
A small refurbishment would be ok. But LEAVE THE ATTRACTION.
