Great Movie Ride RedoWalt Disney World: How would you want to see the Great Movie Ride redone?
From Christopher SturnioloHow I would want to see TGMR redone:
Posted August 5, 2012 at 12:30 PM
New ride system (Omnimover maybe?) with NO GUIDES!!
Not in 3D
No ending montage but something special instead (you guys decide how it should end)
Mostly sets and AA's (keep the video screens on the downlow)
New scenes depending on how many rights Disney can get (preferably Star Wars) (not sure about Wizard of Oz)
Comments in chronological order. Most recent at the bottom. Scroll down to respond.
From Dominick DI'd have 2 different options:

Footlight Parade- Replace with My Fair Lady
Make it a Disney Great Movie Ride. I'll add details later.
From David L.I think Just new scenes, but keep the guides. They really make the ride fun (or in one case of my many rides, make the ride just OK). Keep it to AAs and sets.

From Christopher SturnioloI don't think there's a horror scene in the ride (I think it's just an extension of the Indiana Jones scene).
Posted August 5, 2012 at 6:44 PM
From Dominick DThere is a horror part right after your host comes back.
Posted August 5, 2012 at 7:07 PM
From Andrew DoughertyWhat's in the horror scene?
Posted August 5, 2012 at 8:45 PM
From David L.It's just an extension of the Indy section.
Posted August 5, 2012 at 8:46 PM
From Tim WI agree with the absence of the ending montage, that is the worst ending to the ride.
Posted August 5, 2012 at 9:25 PM
From Dominick DSkeletons are in the horror scene. Look it up on you tube.

From Andy MilitoCouldn't the Alien scene be considered horror?
Posted August 6, 2012 at 7:48 AM
From Dominick DYes, but it is considered Sci-Fi.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 9:24 AM
From Andrew DoughertyIve ridden it before just forgot thanks.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 1:30 PM
From Caroline DavisSurely they really don't need an Empire Strikes Back scene in a theme park that already has a full ride dedicated to the Star Wars franchise.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 1:34 PM
I wish the scenes were more immersive, rather than like watching a movie. I like the hosts, but don't like when they become part of the scene (don't know if I explained that well), like in the gangster scene.
The Alien part is probably my favourite part and if they did take it out of The Great Movie Ride, I would hope that they could make a whole ride devoted to any/all of the Alien films. There's a Prometheus sequel in the pipeline, so it would make sense.
From Dominick DWhat about Indiana Jones? It has a show in the park, so I don't see what the problem is.

From Andrew DoughertyCaroline there is a long complicated story behind the alien franchise coming to disney.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 7:15 PM
From Bryce McGibenyThis is slightly irrelevant, but I'm pretty sure Disney gave me my fear of aliens:
Posted August 6, 2012 at 7:54 PM
1) Traumatized by GMR? (still scared of the Alien scene)
From Anthony MurphyI wouldn't get rid of the live actors! They are part of the magic!
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:02 PM
From Tim WBryce, I completely agree with you about Alien. Unless you like those kind of movies, the scene is quite grotesque and scary.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:05 PM
From Bryce McGibenyYeah, when I went on last week, I closed my eyes and ears. It's horrifying. But I also love things like Halloween Horror Nights....
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:15 PM
.... unless there's an alien walk-through ....
From Dominick DThe Xenomorph doesn't scare me, but then again I've never seen the one that pops out from the ceiling.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:16 PM
From Bryce McGibenyOh god, just talking about it makes me feel like its somewhere near me. Normally the humanoid aliens are the ones that scare me, but the xenomorph does too...
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:23 PM
From Christopher SturnioloDue to the fact that Alien is rated R, I don't think Disney would want an R-rated movie in their own parks. I think Indy should stay, but Star Wars and Avatar should be added.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:46 PM
From Christopher SturnioloI'd also like to hear that suggestion about the all-Disney Great Movie Ride.
Posted August 6, 2012 at 8:47 PM
From Dominick DFox gave Dosney rights to build an entire Alien attraction in Magic Kingdom. It would of been similar to Alien Encounter..
Posted August 6, 2012 at 9:01 PM
From Eric MaloneI like the guides. I've always wanted to be one, myself. That just seems like the kind of thing I'd enjoy doing, since I'm great at improv.
Posted August 7, 2012 at 10:25 AM
From Tim WThe guides are fine and all, but I think it would make each visit special if they didn't stick to a strict script. That goes the same with jungle cruise as well. I always enjoy the people who bring their own personality into their performance, going the extra mile. I think this is something that should be encouraged by Disney.
Posted August 7, 2012 at 11:00 AM
From James TrexenThe script definitely needs to be spiced up a bit. It's sad that after three rides, I have the whole spiel down.
Posted August 7, 2012 at 1:22 PM
From Dominick DThe gangsters change up the lines when I ride, up the tour guides don't.
