    What would donkeys be like on the moon?

  1. It seems everyone had their strategy for getting a boarding pass, but there is really no rhyme or reason to anything. The second day it took forever for me to get the button to light up, hence we missed out. A lot of other AT&T users around me were in a similar situation and many blamed the carrier as Verizon users seemed better. Who’s to say the roles wouldn’t be reversed next time?There’s 10000 people all trying to log in at once, I’m surprised the whole system doesn’t crash. Disney did give 1 day tickets to whoever had a guarantee boarding group (125 and under) that didn’t ride. Guest s
  2. To add my experience: My party visited last week, dedicating 2 of our days to the Studios to ensure we rode. We arrived at 6am for 7am opening both days. Inside the park around 6:30am and the boarding groups opened on time at 7am. First day we got group 88 and rode around 2pm. Ride made 167 groups that day! Second day we received backup group 132 and did not get called, as the ride had a terrible day making it only to group 94. I wasn’t as distraught as many other guests by knowing what I was getting myself into, but be warned, getting on this ride is not guaranteed. Simple math really. I esti
  3. Great photos! I much prefer a photo report than all the videos I have been offered. Reading comments from someone who is not familiar with Star Wars, gave me a few chuckles. One question for SharkTums. How is it you have avoided the lure of Star Wars your whole life? Your at the right age where the kids growing up would have played with the toys. In your 20’s, they re-released the original movies and everyone went crazy. Your a Sci-fi fan, so it’s even more puzzling. Was Star Trek your thing instead? Star Wars heavily shaped pop culture and is readily available. I would highly suggest watchin
  4. I have to respond to some misleading advice here on a serious situation. If something is culturally acceptable doesn’t mean it’s right. For this particular trip, the firearm will be for the majority of the time not on the owner, rendering it useless. Securing firearms from theft is an inherent part of being a responsible gun owner and carrier. Valuables left in hotel rooms, (even safes) and vehicles are the most common places of theft. Any Law Enforcement Officer, as the original poster claims to be, would and should know this. Guns and ammo can not be brought into Canada without paperwor
  5. Seems silly to bring a firearm along a theme park trip. It’s not allowed in any of the parks your visiting or in Canada as you mentioned. You will have to store in in your hotel (not good with housekeeping) or in the car for multiple hours hoping someone doesn’t break in and steal it. What a headache and opportunity to get yourself in trouble on a fun trip. There are 3 bridges into Canada. I would check waits on all three before you leave Grand Island. It’s not uncommon to have over 1h waits during summer weekends. Early or late crossings are usually quiet. Some sites I wouldn’t miss i
  6. Dole Whip (I prefer the float version), is the only must when visiting Disneyland. The Monte Cristo sandwich at Cafe Orleans is popular, but it’s too rich and filling for me. The themed drinks at Trader Sam’s are fun! The best meal I had was dinner at Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel. Everything seemed great in that place. The Overnight Oats in Galaxy’s Edge was a tasty and light breakfast.
  7. Looking forward to the rest. Curious though, are there showers on the trains? Where, how many, etc?
  8. Awesome! How many days will you be there? Galaxy’s Edge is great during day and night. Smugglers Run’s shortest line is rope drop but longest line is shorty after. The line dies down to 30 minutes at times, so just watch the App. Single rider is very fast, but you usually get stuck being an Engineer, which can be boring, yet good to view the entire experience. MaxPass is the bomb. Reserving via your phone is so handy and easy. Make sure your phone is charged though and save battery! We used two phones, one for pics and the other MaxPass. You’ll find yourself with multiple reservations, it’s s
  9. I love all Japan reports. The country intrigues me so much. I can’t wait to go here someday. It will happen!
  10. Which it is and always has been. Different origins than the American one. To answer the post, yes Wonderland will be extremely busy those days. Sunday slightly better than Sat.
  11. I’ve rode almost every other Hyper before Goliath. When I looked at the average, not too steep drop, I wasn’t expecting much. Somehow, a back seat ride gave me awesome air all the way down. The constant speed, with floater and then ejector air was perfect. The best Hyper I agree.
  12. Yup. I only had memories of a rough coaster that came to an almost full stop mid brake run, offering a boring second half. Last week, it became one of my favs, never letting up and barely allowing me to breathe! What a transformation!
  13. I vote in the awards every year. To participate, you contact them and send in a simple resume about yourself. Being Canadian (International) might have helped my cause. I have visited around 80 parks with some in Europe. I could have been accepted simply by contacting, who knows? I take them as fun, don’t get butt hurt about the rankings. I do believe they are way better than even a few years ago, maybe due to more enthusiasts like myself participating. I love that we have a TPR coaster poll to take seriously and the GT for the masses.
  14. I first visited this park 8 years ago and was underwhelmed. Today was simply fantastic! The park looks so much better than I remember. At night, it comes alive. Ghost Rider was a completely different ride than I remember. What an overhaul! I was almost out of breath when pulling into the station. It is hauling serious ass, but still feels smooth. I had a nice dinner at Mrs Knott’s too. A great start to my vacation.
