How is that different than hidden Mickey's?but either way it seemed to me that for a lot of people the ride is now more of a "find the character" exercise than anything else. I'm not sure whether that is good in that it will make it more interesting for riders and thus drive attendence, or bad because it takes away from the original idea of the thing.

That's the thing is that most people don't know the ride was closed much less that characters were added. It was a phenomenon among the Disney circles but most guests have no idea any of this ever happened and even more probably don't even realize that characters were added and those that do, I'm willing to bet, probably thought they've been there all along.Joey AKA "dlfreak"

I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive. If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

99% of the time, you have to know about HMs beforehand. Yes, sometimes, somebody *might* spot one and say, "Hey, that looks like Mickey!" And thus, by the large population, they may get missed. Or even those that know about them, don't go looking for them.
However, w/ "small world", you're introduced to them in to the attraction. I'd be willing to bet that a large majority of people notice them throughout the attraction, starting with Alice (I believe that's the first). You could go into the attraction having no knowledge whatsoever of them, and now you've got yourself a "find-it" game going on.Refurb Mike

If you have no knowledge of them, how can you play "find it?" You just come across them. Just like hidden Mickey's.

Comparatively, who spots Alice in Wonderland on the side of the flume in "small world"?
You could put 1,000 people on each attraction. Even if you told them what to look for and where to find it, I can guarantee you that 99.9% of the people will find it on "small world" and a significant lesser amount of people would spot the same on Indy - prolly closer to 5-10%.Refurb Mike
