Can someone please explain to me why Na'vi River Journey is a disappointment?

    Not everything has to be a thrill a minute, exciting speed ride. Some of my favorite Disney experiences involve simply taking a leisurely ride and examining the scenery, such as the canoes, Small World, Railroad, Friendship boats at Epcot, Storybook Land at Disneyland, and the Main Street vehicles.

    Although it will be years before I get to see Pandora for myself, I am looking forward to exploring the Na'Vi River at a slow pace and savoring every moment.
    Forgive me for getting off track, but your post reminded me of my love for the Peoplemover, and why I also liked the Skyway.
    (I think we've had enough 3D movie screens on rides, btw.)
    I sure hope Disney keeps the Peoplemover after Tron opens. Here's an article by someone else who gets it:

      It's fun to see this post nearly a year later. Last year when I posted I hadn't been on the ride yet. Now that I have I can tell you that it's a beautiful, richly themed experience that was visually stunning. However, it wasn't quite long enough and I got off wishing I had a couple more minutes. It's a pretty long wait for a fairly short ride.

        That is a nice article. I disagree with one part of it, though. It states that the People Mover has no story. I don't believe this is true. The story is that you are the main character taking a ride through a futuristic city on a futuristic mode of transportation. By making the story about you, it becomes the best, most immersive story of all.

          Wow. Im a smidge tardy to the convo, but I think the current article by Joe Rohde in the spring edition of D23 magazine gives a bit of insight into why exactly Pandora (and all the rest of AK) is created the way it is. For example, the main icon of the park is not visible from the main entrance. The idea behind that is to give you the experience of going on a small excursion and "discovering" a new world of adventure. The focus there is experiential storytelling, with the guests making their own story (instead of reliving the tale of another character) as they explore and observe the wonders around them.

          Ive never actually been to WDW (first trip is booked for this November!), but I'm really excited to take part in a more passive adventure in which most of the "story" will be told by our own observations.

            I become Judy Jetson every time I'm on the People Mover. Yep...totally immersive and in another place and time.
