  1. There was a video posted a few days ago, of ThunderVOLT having a test run. Unfortunately, it only goes through one circuit.... I am hoping it does two runs. We'll see, eventually. Thanks to Playland(PNE) for the video.
  2. ^ LOL. And I myself, enjoy a good DY-NO-MITE Roll.
  3. The "wooden village" you saw behind Thunderbird, I loved it. So many photo ops! And during the 2014 TPR visit, I actually met the owner of the Power Park, and the previous owner of the park....his father! That's when I asked about that 'village' was told about the TV series, like you were. And - I that Booster ride! It was smaller than what we used to have at Playland (now removed for the new coaster opening this May). I must have ridden it several times, with different TPR tourers on board. And I remember really, REALLY wanting this brought to Playland. Have to add. I believe your room is in the same part of the hotel ours was, back then. Good view of that grandstand, I remember. Great tour of the park, Bert!
  4. Some new (and past 'new') musicals are about to release Original Cast Recordings in a a few weeks or so.... Sondheim's Final Scored Musical. Closed and Off-Brdwy, but still... Based on The Book. Based on The Movie. Now closed, but still..... Book of Mormon Reunion! (sort of) P.S. The 2024 TONY Awards' Nominations are happening on April 30th. And Ariana DeBose is hosting again, Woo Hoo! The CBS TONYS' Broadcast will air on Sunday, June 17th.
  5. Been awhile here - and btw, KOOZA ^ was wonderful! And the food AND the drinks, and meeting some interesting patrons also seeing it. Another great Cirque visit! And there's another Cirque show coming to town, this Oct/Nov/Dec. Bought tickets to the new Cirque du Soleil show coming to town in November .... ECHO. And for the third time here, we're going VIP again! Free appys and tapas, drinks, meeting cast members, separate entry, bathrooms and a lovely outdoor terrace (with separate tables and chairs) to eat, drink, and enjoy the evening. Plus, we get a "swag bag" each, with the programme in it and 'other surprises.' EDIT To Add: I bought the tickets for our 52nd Anniversary, which will be on April 22nd. I think David will like this, since it's my gift and we're not 'splitting it' between us. Hmmm. Maybe he'll give me a Tokyo Disneyland Resort trip ........ eventually. This will be roughly 'the view' from where we'll be sitting for this show. Nice. Photos from Cirque du Soleil.
  6. Bought tickets to the new Cirque du Soleil show coming to town in November .... ECHO. And for the third time doing this, we're going VIP again! Free appys and tapas, drinks, meeting cast members, separate entry, bathrooms and a lovely outdoor terrace (with separate tables and chairs) to eat, drink, and enjoy the evening. Plus, we get a "swag bag" each, with the programme in it and 'other surprises.' The total cost of this is nearly $700 Cdn. (just over $500 for the U.S.), but after doing it twice, definitely worth it for us. And they announce the show usually over a year from it's arrival. Thereby making it easy to pay for the tickets, and having them paid in full, by the time we see the show. Yay!
  7. After some time ...... Looking (above) at the layout for ThunderVOLT, I am really REALLY hoping, that you get not one, but two cycles on it. Otherwise .... yeah, ok.
  8. ^ It's a thing, remembering characters not seen, that often. Marvin and K-9 are standouts, to me. And .... apparently we're all bored, lol. (kidding)
  9. ^ YAY for a Marvin encounter! Me here, with K-9, Marvin's pet dog, at SFMM/ Sept-2016.
  10. Easter Weekend stuff... This was in Disney Paris a few years back. Happy Easter Everybody!
  11. And after 12 years..... Something I found on my fave cooking site @TheKitchn, with a take on how to dye your Easter Eggs, naturally and w/o expensive 'kits' and the like. https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-vibrant-naturally-dyed-easter-eggs-holiday-projects-from-the-kitchn-112957 And here's the photo to show it all: Thanks to @TheKitchn for the great photo of all these wonderful colours!
  12. Found this photo, taken a couple of days ago. What I found interesting about the shot, is that Space Mountain, once rebuilt and relocated, will be totally behind North Mountain In Fantasy Springs! And then, you'll be able to (pretty much) clearly see the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel opposite the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland. Photo taken and posted by Sunmz, thanks!
  13. What I remember the most, is that insane THUMPing soundtrack that played on and on and on, in the indoor part of the queue. When I was TPRing there, 2007, 2011, 2013. "When it had a TAAAAALLLLL Top Hat (I think) back then..." 2013 Tour
  14. ^ The exterior of the attraction is so EPIC, and "Grandiose"... dark and dirty, too LOL. They did a marvelous design on the exterior of the show building. Excellent!
  15. Great-named band I'm listening to right now... Emotional Oranges
  16. Just found the photo I wanted, to show what I was explaining, i.e. Entry Portal vs. Exit. To the left of the Wizarding World portal, is the Exit with a possible security kiosk, to the left of that. Or maybe it's an information kiosk. Eventually, we'll find out. Thank you to @bioreconstruct and Theme Park Stop for all the info. about Epic Universe's ongoing construction.
