So gutted this ride is closed. Our whole family loved it. Being replaced by another ride however we aren’t all adrenaline junkies so I hope it’s not another coaster.

I am glad Disney is about to overhaul this long time park favorite. I'm not sure the idea of a Mickey and Minnie attraction is too exciting to me personally- but this ride needs major updating of ANY kind.
