Someone posted their impression of the new GMR, which re-opened today. Be aware there are some spoilers listed below...

Yes I was in the park today and got to check out the new and improved Great Movie Ride. First off the outside of the theatre looks amazing with new paint everywhere. Now to the new spiel.

The new spiel is totally different from before. The guide is now kind of a movie fan who knows alot about the movies. There are new facts and trivia throughout the attraction that they tell you. The rumored Jungle Cruise type spiel is untrue and the spiel has a more airy type feel to it than a long drawn out one that it was before. There are a few good one liners in there like "ooooh I see dead people" in the mummy scene. All in all the ride looked great, everything looked painted and was told the audio was better due to the upgrade to digital technology throughout the ride. Also the lighting was upgraded a bit and everything looked fresh. I only rode the gangster show and that character also has a few new lines too so that was kind of different as well. All in all it is a definate must see and a more enjoyable experience.

Everything looks great with the new paint and cleaning up and getting somethings to work correctly that didn't quite work the way the were supposed to. The new speil isn't bad, and you can actually hear it in the back of your car now because of the audio updates.

I'll try to get pics as soon as I can wrestle the camera away from everyone taking pics of the new baby niece :D

So they didn't do anything to the Fantasia section??? I'm glad the rumors were not true.

Ok, no scenes were added or taken away. Several sections did get facelifts though, i.e. the Singing in the Rain scene looks more like Gene Kelly now ;) The Tour Guides now have some liberty at some spots to make up their own little thing. Ours threw in the "I see dead people" line. It wasn't bad, our Tour Guide was, but that was another thing. It's fun, it's different. Most guests don't seem to notice it.
