Moreover, ride length was 18 minutes, 44 seconds.
Overview/History Of The Great Movie Ride:
If you’re a movie buff, you didn’t want to miss seeing some old favorites in the Great Movie Ride. Noteworthy, Disney housed this attraction in a full-scale replica of Hollywood’s legendary Graumann’s Chinese Theater. Also, hand, foot (and paw) prints of popular Disney stars and characters were in the cement outside the theater.
Importantly, the line for the Great Movie Ride was one of the more entertaining lines to wait on. Indeed, the theater “lobby” really impressed the guests. For instance, the first part featured movie memorabilia such as the carousel horse from Mary Poppins and one of the three pairs of ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz. Next, you weaved back and forth while watching movie clips on the big screen. Notably, some of these were a glimpse of what The ride recreated inside.
From here, you entered a cavernous set where “ushers” directed you to the large trams. In fact, these were actually two sets of trams that split up early into the show. Noteworthy, depending on which section you were in, either a gangster or a Western bandit hijacked your tram while your hapless host/hostess was left behind.
Films Showcased In The Great Movie Ride:
Using film footage, special effects and audio-animatronic figures of famous actors, guests were treated to scenes in this order. Firstly, Busby Berkeley’s “Footlight Parade,””Singin’ in the Rain,” and “Mary Poppins.” Next, “The Publi Enemy,” “Man With No Name,” and “The Searchers.” Also, “Alien,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” generic mummies, and “Tarzan The Ape Man,” Finally, “Casablanca,” “Fantasia,” and “Wizard of Oz.”
Importantly, the ride’s finale featured a sentimental film montage sure to bring a smile. Indeed, old and new clips were combined in a memorable recollection of some classic movie moments.
