  • [Chat] Monsters Inc attraction opening with new enhancements

    To discuss the re opening of Tokyo Disneyland's Monsters Inc attraction on May the 1st. Here's what we know so far from the official Press Release from the Oriential Land Company.



    This enhancement will provide everyone with a great opportunity to enjoy anew the fun and wonderful world of the lovable monsters. This attraction will be closed for the renovations from March 23 to April 30, 2010

    does this mean the attraction was not well received ?

      Well wait times would state otherwise, but I guess the Guest survey's are telling a different story. Is the attraction faultless, certainly not, but at the same time, its still a very good dark ride, and like someone else stated on another board is much better and far more popular than the Tiki Room with Stitch. The timing is very odd with the attraction only being opened a full year, and with the Studios annoucing a new Monsters Inc Movie for 2012, I can't understand why OLC would not put the changes on hold and try to capitalise on the movie's suscess. And by waiting for the movie to be released it could add many of the new Monster characters that will likely be featured in the upcoming movie.

        Are Pixar movies even that popular in Japan?

          Very popular indeed, just take a look over at Box Office Mojo for how much money Pixar movies bring in at the Japanese Box Office. The Pixar Characters are all very popular and part of the reason why OLC are bringing in more attractions featuring Mike, Sulley, Crush and Woody. Plus introducing them into the Parade's like Jubilation and Dreamlights.

                      In a way this puts you in a very fortunate position, as OLC and Disney have been using Guest like guinea pigs over the last year to kind of fine-tune the attraction. The new enhancements are being brought in as a result from the feedback given. So hopely the attraction you get the chance to try on the 18th will be an even superior to the original that many of us have enjoyed over the last year.

                          It's May 1st here/there now. Not sure whether the pics are from today though, could be from yesterday. Can't blame them if they open it a day early though, isn't Golden Week starting this weekend?

                              It was gorgeous weather today and yes there was previews yesterday but we were busy and could not go to the park that day. We rode it today twice and really liked it much more, they really listened to what people said they wanted! Went rode it with two different Japanese families and everyone likes this version much more. Now you know for sure when you activate a monster and there are much much more monsters to see. It feels more like a game with the helmets lighting up and making sounds, like monsters Inc. pachinko ha ha! My favorite thing besides more monsters was the lights flickering when Boo laughed, it was a really nice touch! One thing that was weird is that they had made the ride vehicles move more smoothly before but today they were very rough again so hopefully they can fix it soon. Another thing worth noting is that maybe many people still did not know about the ride renewal because the line wait was not so long for a big renewal with wait times around 120, but the park was not crazy busy either maybe because people are still arriving from different areas for Golden Week. Not related to the renewal we also went to TDS today and it was not busy at all with most attractions at 15 minute waits. The super weird thing is that the longest wait was for 20,000 leagues under the sea! The only thing with a longer wait was the new Mickey greeting.
