I'm on the fence about this one. We've seen the FoW before and it was interesting but not something I'd see again and again. I'm not entirely convinced the new Up! version is much more than re-branding with characters. I think if we go to the park multiple times in a year or check it out at least once, otherwise, probably low on my list.

I think this will be a one and done for me, at least until I have grandkids that will enjoy it. I like avian shows, but I've owned several types of birds so I don't usually learn much.

Kristen - I've been reading more rumors these past few days that Disney has heard the feedback on the new Up! show loud and clear and is rewriting it to make it funnier and better. Possibly even bringing in a comic writer from outside the company.

So maybe there is hope!.

I've read that Disney rolled out the new (supposedly funnier) version over Labor Day weekend.
