    When I was there Sunday, they only ran Two trains, Fred Gurley, and one other, They would slowly pass the Tommorrow land Station they could have used a third train on Monday, longer wait then usual. The crowds were enormous on Monday. But it is great to see them back.

    One thing that concerns me, Are they thinking of replacing it?

    I believe the spiel changed in late 2003, so Thurl hasn't been around for a while.

    And sources tell me that only half of the track was replaced, roughly beginning near the Indian on the banks of the Rivers of America, ending at the Diorama. The work, carried out by Sharp & Fellows (a professional railroad contractor) is said to be exemplary.

    I do not think it was Thurl Ravenscroft voice back when I was there in early January before the rehab ...

    b/c I remember telling my BF when I was 12 there was no room on the train for my best friend and I to sit and a CM unlocked the caboose and we had it all to ourselves (with the CM, he was transferring from Main Street to TL) and the CM was telling us things about the park on our ride ... one was the fact that the Tony the Tiger voice did the narration for the train ... then it clicked in my head on our January trip it was not the same voice anymore

    That's a damn innovative idea!

    Maybe I should play my MP3 of ATIS while I'm on Star Tours. Instead of comets, I'll be crashing into the molecules! :lol:

    True. I wish they didn't just have an "impersonater" of him. Might better have been a completely different "type" of voice all together.

    Glad I still have the MP3 of the Thurl version of the spiel. I hate it when they update stuff like that with cornball versions.

    Why cant they do that? Is Thurl still alive? Who is doing the voice for Tony the Tiger now?

    They don't have Thurl Ravenscroft *Tony the Tiger* doing the voice over in the train. Very sad to no hear him.

    They pulled up all of the track, regraded and laid new track. They also replaced the visual block signal system with cab signals, which from the latest reports is not functioning properly. Trains have been running by getting clearance to enter each block by radio.I've heard that this slows things down, as they can't dispatch until the train ahead pulls out of the station.

    I rode it Saturday night after the fireworks. Tomorrowland station is still closed. I didn't notice any changes in the Grand Canyon or Primeval World. There was no sound through most of the trip and when there was sound, it was out of sync with the trip.

    DLRR - Heard it is open....

    Heard the train is now up and running, but doesn't stop at the TL station. Has anyone been on it? Does the Grand Canyon and Primeval World display have any changes or improvements.....do you even see it, or is it still under rehab?
