  1. ^ Thank you! It looks like I will grab my Fastpasses for Racers first than get WOC FP's. If they are out I will take your advice and watch it near Mermaid.

     

    Not to be rude, but if you're visiting from far away, and really won't be able to see WoC for a while, you want to be in a viewing area. I've tried watching it from 'alternate areas' (by the bar, CA Screamin, the swings, the zephyr, etc.) and they don't do the show a justice.

     

    You really need to get an early fastpass and get on the bridge (blue area) - that's the best way to see it so you get the overall picture.

     

    And I've seen the show dozens of times, in all of the viewing areas.

     

    Just my advice. Don't want to ruffle feathers.

     

    EDIT: Couple of other tips - your WoC does NOT count as a ride allowance, and, one person in your party can go get all of the fastpasses, as long as the ticket/pass has gone through the CA ADV turnstile (so they know the person is in the park).

  2. Yeah, I also called and was told I can renew by July 1st to get last year's rate; I did this last year when I got the pass and paid the 2011 price. If I were to do that, my pass would have the same expiration - July 2013.

     

    Instead of doing that, I bought a pass at The Disney Store and it's good for its first use until December 31st, 2012.

     

    So, I'll ride out my premium pass until the middle of July, skip going this summer when Carsland/CA ADV will be insane, and start up my new pass next December.

     

     

    For those of you who plan on doing this, buy a pass 'voucher' tonight; tomorrow, you'll be SOL.

  3. Could someone please explain to me what the "babysitter" effect is? I kind of saw this price increase coming. Since they are adding Cars land they probably think that more people will pay the higher price which I believe is true.

     

    With the DLR (resort, haha) being surrounded by so many neighborhoods, it's easy for parents to drop their kids off because, in reality, Disneyland is somewhat 'safe'. If you buy your kids passes for a few hundred dollars per year, and are able to drop them off without having to park, you're getting off pretty easy.

     

    Also, since it's within so many neighborhoods, and so close to MANY cities, it's cheap Friday night entertainment. Why go to the movies and spend $30, when we can go to Disneyland? I mean, after all, we'll get there at five, watch the shows/fireworks, and leave at eleven. Never mind the fact that we're crowding the place when everyone and their brother gets off of work.

     

     

     

    Same as SFMM - buy your kids $60 passes and drop them off. They'll be in the confines of a gated park with employees/security guards. And really won't be able to leave since nothing (other than a few restaurants) is within walking distance.

  4. For those of you saying a premium isn't necessary, I beg to differ. I have a premium so I can avoid the So-Cal/So-Cal select days - that's when the park is absolutely Hell on Earth.

     

    I don't buy the premium because I take advantage of going all of the time. And I also don't stake out a spot for Fantasmic or the fireworks three hours in advance. So yeah, there are definitely passholders that take advantage of the place.

  5. Ok, I just have to say a couple things. First, patience. I know that by the time 2013 comes around, people will stop complaining so much about SFMM and sart really having some positive things to say about the park. People need to start realizing that there will be positive changes to the park. The new attractions are the main focal point of what is happening, however there are a lot of smaller changes being made, and they are going to be really great.

    Six Flags is not as pretty as Disneyland Resort or a Cedar Fair park, but thank goodness we have SFMM here, otherwise we would all be pretty bored without a major thrill park. Just bums me out NEVER hearing anyone here say positive things about SFMM. If it really bothers you, there's more that you can do to maybe contribute to some changes being made, but sitting at your computer and whining isn't going to do much.

     

    Have you looked at the three links Robb provided? Those TRs were full of praise toward SFMM, and showed MULTIPLE changes during every trip.

     

     

    EDIT: ^ I wouldn't say there's anything being repeated all that much. I've just learned over the past few pages that there is no 'fix' for GL other than having employees rotate the trains. And really, that means there's no 'fix' since SFMM will never allocate staff to do that job.

  6. ^ No, I was being serious - I firmly believe that it's simply because it's SFMM. Add to that the fact that it's a park in CA, and you have too much of a liability for them to run Green Lantern to its full potential.

     

    I was at SFMM the other day when there weren't any lines, and I couldn't wait to leave. I used to really enjoy going there, but after going to so many east coast parks last year, my perception has changed.

  7. No matter what happens, I'm sure there are water park enthusiasts out there, so I'll try my best to get construction photos. That's really a commercial area for Temecula so I'm still surprised that they're putting it there. It'll be just around the corner from a window manufacturer, and a contractor-only tile shop. Interesting.

     

    Whatever brings tax revenue to Temecula is fine by me.

  8. It will definitely be interesting. I know there have been rumors of a Temecula water park for years, so I'm glad to see something come to fruition.

     

    As for Temecula, there are a lot of Orange County transplants here.

     

    But you've also got a lot of surrounding areas where they rely on Temecula for commuting, certain shops, big box stores, etc. The area where this park is going has A LOT of traffic and is easily accessible from the freeway.
