  1. Keep your receipt and your ticket stub and go to Guest Relations sometime during the day to upgrade for a certain amount of money. Not sure how much it is this year.

     

    So the upgrade costs extra? I thought I read somewhere that since the WCB ticket is valid for the full day admission, it would be processed into a Season Pass free since 1-day ticket & Season Pass are the same price now, hence the buy a day get a year free promos. Is anyone interested in turning a $22.50 WCB ticket into a Season Pass going to have to pay the difference between that & the retail price for a Season Pass?

  2. This might be a stupid question but can you guys elaborate a little on how exactly someone who bought one of the $22.50 tickets can turn that into a Season Pass later that day? Will it be as easy as taking a receipt into the Processing Center? Just wondering as a few in my group are quite interested in that little perk.

     

    BTW Haven't seen you guys since Tatsu Media Day, hope to see ya there!

  3. A video from La times. It's the only video ive seen that had a interview with a rider from tpr

     

    http://video.latimes.com/Global/Video/WorldnowASX.asp?os=&vt=v&clipid=789503

     

    And that rider would be me. It was actually myself & my friend Eric. LA Times nailed us wondering if we were from ACE. We said no, that we're from TPR. They'd never heard of TPR, but wanted to do the interview anyway. I'm the guy on the left in the little 2-man interview blip in the middle of the video doing the crappy hurried description. Any chance of someone saving that video to their computer harddrive so I could get a copy of it?

     

    I also managed to score a ride with the NASA Astronaut Col. Rich Searfoss which was aired live on CBS morning news. Here's the link to that:

    TPR on the morning news!

    Unfortunately, no mention of TPR in that video.

     

    I was also interviewed by KCAL, CBS, and KNX1070 in addition to LA Times, making me most likely to be the TPR Media Whore for the day. Doesn't matter, I still had a blast!

     

    ...and for those of you looking for pictures:

    EDIT: There were a whole lot of us on the Revolution train that hit the loop with Tatsu flying overhead & fireworks n' stuff going off. ...but you already knew that Robb didn't you?

  4. You have to understand this is not just about people having cell phones on the ride, this is more about the park wanting to have some control over what images are released and when.

     

    I'm not sure if the "no cell phone" rule is just for the media event or for the life of the ride, but remember this is THEIR multi-million dollar attraction that they have INVITED us, for free, to the media event and if they tell us no camera phone on the ride, then no camera phone on the ride.

    I understand all that, but my point was if I can stash everything away in a zipper pocket that doesn't obstruct any restraint, are they going to go through my pockets in the quest for the dreaded camera/cell phone? That would be the first time I've ever experienced that at any park I've ever been to. I've been to 26 different ones around the country so it would really be an eye-popper if that was to happen.

  5. My cell phone happens to have a camera, but I have no intention of ever using it, plus I have zipper pockets. Is Magic Mountain going to go through my pockets, discover a cell phone with a camera (the lens even has a cover over it for crying out loud), and send me to whereever the lockers are? I've brought my cell phone on countless rides, stowed it in the pocket and NEVER had any problems. Seems to me if they're going to be this anal about things, they had better have adequate and secure places to store things that are provided & do NOT cost money.

     

    Let me see if I have this camera issue straight - I can do whatever I want off-ride with my camera as long as I don't bring it on the ride right? If so then the camera gets grouped into the cell phone. If I have it in the zipper pocket before I even get close to getting on the ride. The ride ops are going to have to go through my pockets to even know I have it. I really can't believe they'd inspect everyone's pockets before getting on the ride. Imagine the delays that would cause.

  6. Hey Robb & Elissa & TPR, I hardly ever post here, but I thought this merited a thread since I'm pretty much betting my own safety on the Japan Trip Guide found here. I know I'm not known, but I did run into Robb & Elissa & 'Hypotenuse' at Magic Mountain a couple months ago. It was my first time back to SFMM after my jaw surgery.

     

    Anyway, the trip is nearly identical to the first four days listed on the guide found here: http://www.themeparkreview.com/japan2004/japanguide1.htm

    Here are the details of the trip myself & a friend from Visions Fantastic will be going on:

     

    5/27-28/06

    Depart Los Angeles at 1:15pm on JAL

    Arrive Tokyo Narita at 4:35pm on 5/28

     

    Since we're arriving so late, I'm relying on the back-up plan noted on the guide taking the trains. Is this information up to date & accurate? Do the trains run during the times we'll need them? How exactly do we buy the train tickets?

     

    Assuming we make it to our hotel, we're staying at the Hilton Tokyo Bay thanks to the awesome rate they were charging: 17,000JPY/night! Next cheapest was twice that! So thanks TPR for that little tidbit.

     

    We'll be staying there from 5/28 - 6/2. We plan to buy a starlight pass into TDS the night of the 28th to hopefully ride Journey before it goes down. After that we plan to spend 3 days at TDL/TDS. The other day we plan to go shopping and buy an after 5pm entry into Sega Joyopolis since it looked so cool from the pictures. We'll be relying on the information given in the guide as to how to get there via the trains from TDR. So we're looking for any updates to information, tips, tricks, tidbits, etc. I was a little puzzled at their pricing structure. Do you get unlimited use of attractions with the after 5 passport? Maybe I'm just blind but I couldn't really figure it out.

     

    After all that's done, we'll head home:

    6/2/06

    Depart Tokyo Narita @ 5:20pm on JAL

    Arrive LAX @ 11:15am thus completing joke of flying back in time.

     

    So...we think we know what we're doing with this guide, but we have no idea about how much things like food cost. Nor do we really know any tricks about the parks themselves. We're very savvy Disneyland goers & we'd like to know what, if any, insider details are there about the Tokyo Disney Parks.

     

    Thanks very much for any help provided & I'll be seeing you guys at the Tatsu Media Day Campout on Wed night!
