  1. Hello again everyone! So there are two more culture based updates that I will be posting, and then we will get into the meat and potatoes of the TPR Scandinavia Trip, the different parks that we visited! For now, here is the next part of the cultural updates..... Day 2.4: Christiansborg Palace, Part 2-The Ruins and Royal Stables In the previous update, Jeff and I had done the first of three different exhibits at Christiansborg Palace, the Royal State Rooms. In this update you will see the other two exhibits, the Ruins and the Royal Stables. The Ruins are the remains and artifacts f
  2. I don't think I would mind if Gwazi got the RMC treatment. That ride has not fared well lately.
  3. Hello Again Everyone, So I realize that it has been about two months since I last updated this, so it's time for another one.... Day 2.3: Christiansborg Palace, Part 1-The Royal State Rooms So after getting to see the Royal Changing of the Guard at Amalienborg Palace, Jeff and I made our way to Christiansborg Palace, which is the current home of the Danish Parliament. When you go to visit Christiansborg, they have three different attractions to visit, which include the ruins of previous palaces that had once stood on the same spot of the current palace, the Royal Stables where the
  4. Welcome back to another update of the pre-tour culture before the 2014 Scandinavia Tour! This time I bring to you... Day 2.2: The Royal Changing of the Guard at Amalienborg Palace If you remember from one of the previous updates, Amalienborg Palace is the residence of the Royal Family of Denmark. Because of this, there are guards on duty at all times to protect the palace. Every day at Noon they have the full changing of the guard, and this is what we would be viewing. Many people are familiar with the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace in London as it is a very large event. Th
  5. Thanks Matt and Bill! This was one of my "must do" things on the trip for my culture days and I am really glad I did it. I am in Tampa working at the USF football game tonight but have the day off so the next part should be up tomorrow.
  6. Alright, time to get this Photo TR rolling again with the next update... Day 2.1: Copenhagen Canal Tour So the second day of sight seeing before the official TPR tour began was another day of visiting landmarks and attractions of Copenhagen. After having gone to the Viking Ship Museum, The Round Tower, Rosenborg Palace, Nyhavn and the Little Mermaid Statue the day before, it was time to take a Canal Tour of Copenhagen to start day 2. Jeff and I would also go to see the full Changing of the Guard at Amalienborg Palace, Christansborg Palace and Carlsberg Brewery. This next update is focu
  7. Well Bill, I just so happen to have more here for you and everyone else to check out.... Day 1.4: Nyhavn and the Little Mermaid Statue So the first day of cultural exploring of Copenhagen before the theme park portion of this trip included a visit to the Nyhavn area near the canal and to see the Little Mermaid Statue, one of the best known symbols of Copenhagen. So let's take a look at what we saw.... Had a chance to meet one of the locals while strolling along to Nyhavn This was a pretty cool thing we saw on one of the construction walls near Nyhavn. It was called the Happy Wal
  8. Hey Everyone, After taking some time to get a few other things handled, I had some time tonight to prepare some pictures of the on-going exploration of Copenhagen before the TPR Scandinavia Tour began, so let's go on with our next update: Day 1.3: Rosenborg Palace Rosenborg Palace was originally built in 1606 as a summertime home of Christian IV and came to it's present state in 1626. It was used as the royal residence until the year 1710, and was used only twice more for the royal family to reside. When visiting Rosenborg, there are two parts of the palace to visit. The top three
  9. ^I think that was more like me falling over on my ass than taking a break, ha ha! Today I am happy to bring another culture update to this trip report..... Day 1.2: Wondering Around Copenhagen! So in the last update, Jeff and I had just visited the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, and since we had a good bit of time left in the day, we decided to venture over towards Rosenborg Palace and to make a visit to the round tower. Rosenborg Palace will be the next update, which this one will be more about the tower and the walk over to the palace. So let's go see what Copenhagen has to offe
  10. ^^-Now Jeff, let's get one thing strait.........I did not shake my head......I nodded in agreement
  11. Since I still had some time today, I went ahead and got everything ready to do the next update, so here it is...... Day 1.1: Roskilde and the Viking Ship Museum So one of my goals when signing up for this trip was that I wanted to make some additional cultural visits along with the wealth of awesome parks that would be a part of the tour. I spent a lot of time looking up different things to do in Copenhagen, and the Viking Ship Museum was one of the most anticipated cultural stops I wanted to make. This museum was created back in the 1960's when scientists discovered that there we
  12. Hello everyone! Welcome to my trip report of the 2014 Scandinavia Tour from Theme Park Review. This tour was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had, and am glad that I was able to be a part of it. Robb and Elissa have never failed to do an amazing job of putting together amazing trips. If you ever consider planning a trip similar to this of your own, I would bet that they may have some great tips and information to make the most of it, as they have shown an excellence in trip planning over the years. Now for this trip, this was my first time leaving the North American Contin
  13. This and the Orlando Eye projects make me feel kind of like they are starting to turn I-Drive into a family-friendly version of the Strip in Vegas. Sure it isn't quite as BIG as the hotels in Vegas, but the "Entertainment Districts" that were mentioned earlier seem fairly similar to what multiple hotels on the strip have. You add these two places with the Pointe, and I-Drive is building up a fairly decent collection of these districts. On a another thought, sure it sucks to see the demise of the old time mini-golf and FEC places, but in a place like Orlando with Disney and Universal (Whic
  14. I would certainly be up for a journey to Spain! This looks like it will be really well done.
  15. And the funny thing is that people will loose their minds when the $100 barrier is crossed. They will swear NEVER to come to the park ever again!!!!!.....and yet they will still come. In all reality as other have already mentioned, when you compare the amount of a one day pass at Disney to other forms of entertainment, it isn't so bad. When I was looking for Book of Mormon tickets back at the time they were touring in Orlando, you could find seats over $120. That is only for a two and a half hour show. (A great one, but still a short time compared to the 8-12 hours you can spend at a Disney Pa
