P. 604: Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval announced

Recommended Posts

I kind of can't wait until people go to Universal to go to the "Harry Potter Theme Park", get onto the people movers with the arrows pointing toward Islands of Adventure and Universal Orlando, getting confused, then getting pissed off, and then throwing an absolute fit.

wow..if they get pass the vacation planning, ticket purchasing, and universal's website and come to the park looking for a 3rd gate, yeah they need to throw a fit...in a mirror.

I like how they build a roller coaster in the same time it took them to built new lockers for Harry Potter.   

On Sunday I ventured out to the Universal Orlando Resort for a chance to see the new holiday offerings at the two parks. This year is a little different thanks to COVID-19, but Universal has still man

I dont know if the GP are even smart enough to even think about the Harry Potter theme park thing thing. My friends all call DCA Disneyland, and even if we go to DCA they will say we went to Disneyland, just cause they are in ther same area. Also, I dont know if people, unless they are REALLY into this, are going to pay enough attention to the aspect that the area is advertised as a new park.

^ It will happen more than plenty I am sure. I kind of hope Vegas puts a line on it.

It really isn't fair to call the "GP" dumb over something like this. They are just going off of what they are fed by the media. They don't follow this stuff like you, or anyone else on this site. Saying the "GP" is not smart enough is like saying I am dumb because I don't understand calculus (I took calculus in high school my senior year, and believe me, I didn't take any time to learn it).

If you look up "dumb" in the dictionary, one of the definitions should be:

 

They are just going off of what they are fed by the media.

 

And I completely agree with that. Excellent point.

I can't even count how many people I've corrected when it comes to the "theme park" versus "land" stuff. I'm just glad I don't work customer service at IOA when this place opens. I'm sure they're going to hear a ton of complaints about falsely advertising it as a new "theme park" or some crap.

 

Never give the GP any credit; they are for the most part as dense as you can possibly imagine.

Believe me, I work with people every day of the week. I helped start an organization that is designed to do good things, and has been doing good things for over a year now. We were very upbeat and passionate about it when it first started, but it feels like we have gone through 12 round with Mike Tyson at this point. Why? Because of people who are total idiots. They are people that say things about the organization that are totally false, and other people (idiots) believe them. Then, small media outlets start to post stuff, and then there I am left to try to control the mess. Believe me, I am not giving the "GP" any credit at this point. If anything I have lowered my standard in terms of the majority, and I guess that is why it may have seemed like I was giving credit where credit really isn't due. I just have a really low standard at this point, and I'm not really surprised by anything, at all, ever.

I don't think so....it would be difficult to let in the harry area only a part of guests...

 

^^ Shoot, that part's easy. You just hand eligible guests a voucher when they check in that they must present when they arrive at IOA. Either they present it at the Hogsmeade gate or they put together a secondary gate for Harry Potter Package guests. Not difficult in the least. I'd expect nothing but the shops to be open, though (excluding Dragon Challenge, of course).

Sorry if this has been explained in the past pages of posts. I understand that the queue travels through the castle and the greenhouse. Is there an overflow queue outside (like for Spiderman) for when it gets crazy busy? Or is the entire line inside?
