Indeed. In your world, wanting things to get better is being negative. What a sad place that is.

We were on the Haunted Mansion ride. We sat in car for 1/2 hr watching the same ghoul’s head pop up & down. Emergency lights came on and we could see all the mechanics in holes in the floor. Then a mechanic came and manually opened each car as riders were escorted down a sawdust path. People were snapping pics left & right. Never made the local news I guess because no one was hurt.

I am outraged that Disney would charge so much money only to have something outside of their control cause an inconvenience to the guests!!! This is an absurd money grab!!! Walt would be rollin’ in his grave!! Disney Parks suck, and if you don’t agree with me, you are not a REAL Disney fan!!!!
