Those larger animatronic figures look nice and pretty interesting. I'm sure they do impact positively the scale as you mention. But my favorites are the previous to last scene, what looks like a "Dancing, Harem". Ha,ha! It's also nice that is named "Simbad", while not unheard of, at least is not like some of the other repetitive names around.
So Robert, that would be a pretty welcomed addition, it doesn't even have to be Simbad. It could be a new character, with his/her own new music! Why do you think they don't do that? Merchandising purposes, trademarks? Maybe something like, the American crowd/visitors won't really identify with a "No" name (compare to Disney's famous princesses), like Simbad?
They get DisneySea, and we get meet and greets.
I'm Daniel Etcheberry and I approve this message.
If a detailed attraction like Sinbad came to the parks, I think most (general) theme park guest would welcome it.
I think though when you have groups that are against any sort of change.....they simply are more vocal & it's assumed that's the consensus.
Look at the alcohol debate about the new fantasyland.....not saying either party is right or wrong, but it just comes across as that any new move that is made, that might not be traditional, may cause controversy......i.e bringing something like Sinbad here, when you have plenty of disney properties to use!! How could they!
Something like the disney princesses is simply a franchise that makes a ton of money & the target demo for that will buy the merchandise regardless of an attraction. A couple of meet n greets and their demo is fine.
Somewhere on the annoying scale behind Gallagher (the watermelon smashing one, not the TPI one.)
