Wow, it sounds like some of the attractions are finally getting the much needed attention that they need.
I'm also looking forward to the BTM update, though I'm also a little jealous for selfish reasons; the predicted closure on November 2nd would mean we arrive two days too late as we're not arriving till the 4th November. It would have been nice to have at least one ride (or more!) before it closed, especially since its been more then a decade since I lost rode it.
Honestly, I'm not fussed about Jack Sparrow being added to POTC. I understand why he is being added, and I'm sure many, many people will be thrilled that he will be there, but I wouldn't miss him if he wasn't. POTC is, and was, always one of my favourite rides. From the queueing area to the ride itself and beyond, I adored the attraction as a child and will continue to do so for many years to come - with or with Mr Sparrow.
Space Mountain was one of the first "big" coasters that I ever went on. My mum had to force me to go on it, but after I tried it, I loved it. Having not been to DLP for so long, I couldn't say if much had or hadn't changed, but I'm glad to hear it's being improved. Given that it is what we look for when we arrive at DLP by Eurostar (always one of the best bits of the holiday!), and the fact it takes up such a space in Discoveryland, I look forward to seeing it open again.
Videopolis was always a bit of a strange one for me. I remember always wanting to snap pictures of the giant airship before grabbing a large coke and watching some old Disney cartoons on the TV above the stage. I'm glad it's staying and not being changed too much.
Like BTM, IASW will also be closed during our holiday. As a child, I hated
going on it. I'm not sure if it was the song, the colours or my mum's tendency to sing along which resulted in it getting stuck in your head for months. Regardless, I was actually looking forward to going on it now that I've grown up a bit. Sadly, I'm just going to have to book another trip to find out if I enjoy it yet
La Cabane des Robinson is another one of those attractions that I never really cared for. Maybe that's not entirely true, but I never really appreciated it. I was all about the magic as a kid, as was my brother, and for us La Cabane des Robinson just didn't cut it. I'm sure that when we go back, I'll look upon it with a different view, and to hear that it is being renovated is nothing but good news!
Peter Pan's flight is another family favourite. I'm sure everyone will be glad that it is receiving some updates, no matter how minor.
Animagique is a fantastic attraction! My fiancée is really looking forward to experiencing this one. For me, this is the closest to the awesome T2 3-D: Battle Across Time attraction in Universal Studios that I can get to in Paris.
I was gutted when I heard that the Studio Tram Tours had closed in WDW. I've been there three times and every time it was one of the top things on my to-do list. I loved the depth that it seemed to go in, the attention to detail and that it was in English. While I appreciate that DLP's Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic is based in France, it would be nice to have a carriage or two give a dedicated tour in English. Maybe it's a small gripe but I think it would be greatly appreciated - I know I would!
And finally Star Tours... Perhaps my favourite queue for a ride ever! Being a Star Wars nerd since I was young, I loved Star Tours. I remember forcing mum and dad to spend a fortune in WDS after it opened as there were so many figures that I needed that I hadn't already got at home. The ride, although repetitive, was great fun. My brother used to suffer from motion sickness but he also loved this ride. Since Disney's acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, I'm hoping for great things to happen at this corner of Discoveryland.
