Universal Orlando reopened “The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman” ride on Thursday after a month-long renovation.

The ride offers new energy and new thrills, according to the design team.

Visitors to the new ride were excited about the updates.

“Awesome. I thought it was really cool because of the 3D,” said one visitor. “It’s much better.”

The ride now features new high-definition animation, new audio and new “Spider-Vision” 3D glasses.

Officials said the story is the same as it was when it opened in 1999. The riders are part of Spiderman’s battle against evil villains.

“We had a chance to make it even better,” said Eric Parr of Universal’s creative team. “That’s what we decided to do. We think we’ve done a really great job making it more dynamic, more colorful, more intense.”

Earlier this year it was announced that the ride was going to be included in a multimillion-dollar upgrade at the Universal Orlando Resort.

“You’re up, you’re down. You feel like you’re flying and falling and upside down,” said park visitor John Brose. “Yeah, it was a lot of fun.”

Perhaps no other Walt Disney theme-park attraction gets as much ridicule from adults as does the iconic “It’s a  Small World” ride.

Yet, for all the jokes about the attraction, and especially its mind-numbing musical accompaniment, most adults still seem to take a great deal of pleasure in climbing into the ride’s boats and embarking along a colorful water journey through some of the world’s best animatronic cultures.

Parents get a kick out of watching their young kids’ enjoyment of the attraction, of course. But, if the constant queue of childless adults here at the Magic Kingdom is any indication, many adults probably also enjoy the childhood memories the ride evokes for them, as well.

Now anyone with an iPhone or iPad can take a little bit of the “Small World” joy with them on the go.

The “it’s a small world” animated iOS app not only has the same stylized lowercase spelling preferred by theWalt Disney Co., but it also recreates the sing-along fun experienced by the world-unity attraction here and at other Disney parks.

The app’s interactive story line is driven by lyrics from the Sherman Brothers’ song for the attraction and promotes the ideas of meeting new people and exploring new places around the globe. App users even can learn different ways to say hello in various languages, and one feature of the app also allows kids to sing along. (Just what you wanted to hear, right Mom and Dad?)

It’s clearly an app designed for children, but adult Disney fans might even enjoy it, as well, given its colorful design elements and smart adaptation of the attraction’s music and storyline. Adults can use an orlando scooter rental access the “Small World” attraction.

Sure, your friends might scoff at the app’s earworm tune or its simplistic belief in a smile meaning “friendship to everyone” the world over. But the app’s beautiful animation style and rendering quality make it a standout app for Disney fans young and not so young.

Someone will be going to Disney World after the Super Bowl on Sunday, and he’ll be making good on that promise quickly. A member of the championship team will be honored with a parade at the Magic Kingdom on Monday.

Of course, we can’t know the player’s identity until after the game pitting the New England Patriots and New York Giants in Indianapolis.

The parade will travel down the theme park’s Main Street just before 1:30 p.m. on Monday. It will be included in regular park admission.

The chosen player — not necessarily the official MVP of the big game — also will be featured in the famed “I’m going to Disney World” television commercial, part of an ad campaign that began in the 1980s.

Lately, the “going” trend has leaned toward NFL quarterbacks and “American Idol” winners. Last year, the phrase was uttered by Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers after his Super Bowl victory and by Scotty McCreery, who won season 10 of Fox’s “American Idol.”

The Fantasyland expansion is in full swing — the forlorn Dumbo sign could still be seen in the ride’s former location behind a construction fence.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is also closed for a long rehab; you can see it encased in scaffolding. And buildings in Frontierland and on Main Street are being worked on. The ground appears to be being resurfaced in Frontierland in big patches, too.

The Frontierland work means the parade can’t get through — so a modified version of the daily “Celebrate a Dream True Parade is running up Main Street USA, circling in front of the castle and heading back down Main Street.

Perhaps most obvious: The workers dangling in a bucket attached to a giant crane working on Cinderella Castle.

Maybe to distract from all the construction zones, there were characters everywhere, both announced in the Times Guide and surprises. On Saturday, Peter Pan bounded into view between the Crystal Palace and the bridge toward Adventureland and Liberty Square, giving his famous cry.

And the characters in the parade were even more animated than usual — especially a grinning Prince Naveen, whose groovin’ dance style fits the “Celebrate” song and the energetic quartet of Peter, Wendy, Alice and Mad Hatter.

Universal Orlando will unveil a bundle of attractions — including its first daily parade, an after-dark salute to movies, a new Blue Man Group show, its “Despicable Me” production� and high-tech enhancements to its Spider-Man ride — during the next few months.

Although these multimillion-dollar additions are sprinkled across Universal property, the bulk will be inside the Universal Studios theme park, which has stood in the shadow of its sister park, Islands of Adventure, since The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened there in 2010.

This spring, the Studios will introduce “Universal’s Superstar Parade” and the nighttime “Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Moments,” Universal executives announced Wednesday during a live webcast. They were flanked by Blue Man performers and yellow “Despicable Me” characters at Universal CityWalk.

Precise debut dates were not given. Universal would not discuss the price tag for these projects or whether they would lead to higher ticket prices.

Additional entertainment is a plus for Universal and its guests, said Matt Roseboom, publisher and editor of Orlando Attractions Magazine.

“It’s something to stick around for,” he said. “It will entertain people and keep the lines for the [other] attractions down for a little bit during that time.”

The webcast addressed attractions that will open this year — not the announced expansion of Wizarding World or the unannounced future of the area where the Jaws ride operated at Universal Studios until earlier this month.

“I think this seems like a big push for this year: to get people here this year, this summer,” Roseboom said. “I think the big expense is going to be whenever they announce what’s happening with Jaws.”

Increasing the profile of the Studios is essential after the company’s success with Potter, said Scott Smith, a faculty member at the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality, where he teaches theme-park management.

“When you have two gates, you have to keep the value the same in the mind of the customer,” Smith said.

Parade highlights

The parade will spotlight characters from “Despicable Me,” “Hop,” “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Dora the Explorer,” plus street performers and elaborate floats.

“These are, by far and away, the largest floats we’ve ever constructed,” said Jim Timon, Universal’s senior vice president of entertainment.

Universal creates floats for its Mardi Gras parade, which runs each year from February through April. The new parade will run year-round and make stops so that characters, dancers and other performers can engage spectators, Timon said.

A parade is a feel-good, cost-effective addition, Smith said. “It has bang-for-buck in that it’s big, it’s loud, it’s noticeable. Even if you’re not a parade watcher, you’re going to say to yourself, subconsciously, ‘There’s a lot going on at the Studios.’ ”

Movies and mayhem

“Cinematic Spectacular” is a salute to Universal Pictures’ history, projected on both sides of a series of water walls on the park lagoon at the end of the day. It is supplemented by colorful fountains, fireworks, lasers and narration by actor Morgan Freeman.

The 30-foot-by-30-foot “waterfall curtains” have never been done in North America, Timon said.

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, the attraction based on characters from the 2010 film “Despicable Me,” is scheduled to open this summer at the Studios.

Its story is neither a rehash of the movie nor a preview of the sequel, set for theaters next year, said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. Rather, it’s a new story based on the characters and “true to the spirit of the franchise,” he said.

In the attraction’s story, guests will visit the house of Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) and train to be minions, the yellow, goggled, worker-bee creatures seen in the film.

The first batch of attractions will be the retooled Blue Man show and the miniature-golf courses called Hollywood Drive-In Golf. Both are set to open next month at Universal CityWalk.

Spidey time

In March, Islands of Adventure guests will see changes aboard the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride, which is receiving technological upgrades: reanimation and a new projection system.

“We basically had to start from scratch because we went from film to digital media,” Woodbury said.

Spider-Man’s story will remain as it has since the popular ride opened in 1999, but passengers will spy more details in the new high-definition version — plus extras such as people running down streets in the Doc Ock scene and a (computer-generated) cameo by Stan Lee, co-creator of the Spider-Man character, Woodbury said.

“When Spider-Man lands on the hood of the car, you’ll see an entirely new Spider-Man, just like you’ll see in the motion pictures, with a level of detail and richness in the picture [so] that you’ll see every thread of his costume — a totally different texture,” he said.
