  • Great Movie Ride didn’t make Disney MONEY, anything that isn’t selling merchandise is on the block to go buh bye. The admission price to enter Disney is a given, as is parking, they want MUCH more money out of every living soul from every inch of those parks. That’s why they’re not doing well. Disney doesn’t get it. People want some fun. Not that this ride didn’t need refurbishment, but, everything is going promotional and sales only. Like one big advertisement you pay dearly to get into.
