Agree, Maelstrom must be left as is! Remember how horrible the 3 Amigos ride was after the refurb in the Mexican pavilion?

Need something much better than cappy EO.

Sorry, Anonymous #1, but you are completely wrong about the current Mexico pavilion boat ride!

It is not horrible in the slightest possible manner. It's a HUGE improvement over the very outdated El Rio Del Tiempo!

Also, The Great Movie Ride is NOT going to close for good--there's no truth to that rumor.
