This image looks pretty sweet! I can't wait to see Spidey in hi-def too. I'd like to see them tweak the story as well. Maybe introduce some new elements or villans or both?

It'd be great if some of the scenes had different versions (like Star Tours 2) to vary each ride through some.

Fingers crossed!

Correct me if I'm wrong but im 99.9% certain that when I was at the park on Thanks Giving at least three of the scenes had already been upgraded. Or am I mistaken?

It'd be better if they finally got round to painting the fruit and donuts in the queue instead of keeping them the same horrible grey colour!

@Stuart: Let's just pretend they're moldy. ;) BTW, that picture looks awesome! I can't wait for that and Despicable Me!

What is the original image?

Yeah it looks awesome! I think that they were just switching over some of the projectors but they hadn't started with the new digital ride film yet. Don't know for sure?

I'm also excited by this image. This should be a major upgrade in detail and realism in an attraction that is already the best of its kind in the world. The 4K image will really help offset the slightly dark visual the rider gets by having to wear 3D glasses.
