This past week Disney TDA excutive decided it wasn't safe to have seating (remember these seating alcoves have been on the bridge for 60 years) on the entrance bridge anymore, as someone might fall in the moat.
C'mon Really?? So many magical moments and memories were made on that bridge.

Not sure if this was a OSHA move or Disney.
But there are plenty of people who are not happy with this new addition.
I know I am not.
They should change the name of the park to, "Safetyland" where we are afraid we will get sued for anything.
