    Only shorter, and not as effective.

    Can you imagine? Teaching the Hong Kong cast those same tired jokes that they've been doing at Disneyland since 1955? Yikes!

    I also got the impression those boats were moving pretty fast. Is that just due to the camera?

    As a former WDW skipper I should know how long the ride lasts, but I've blocked that 6 month period from my mind.

    I just thought the boats seemed to be moving fast as it was. It stopped here and there but when it was moving, it was moving!

    I was there August 2006 - January 2007. 5 days a week -- 9 to 5 -- it was the hardest job I've ever had, and I'm not kidding. I almost went insane.

    Actually, I do not remember hearing any jokes from the old tired JC rides from the US... but new jokes to go with the new scenes in the ride.
