Disneyland Resort (DL, DLR, DCA) Discussion Thread

P. 391: All the details about Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland!

Recommended Posts

I'll be heading to Disneyland tomorrow for my last visit during the 60th anniversary celebration. That means my last ride on Hyperspace Mountain before Ghost Galaxy returns for Halloween. I like the Hyperspace layover, but I definitely miss the classic version. I was just curious if anyone else misses the classic version, and if you think it will return after Ghost Galaxy or not.

Sorry, I meant spin more violently. I used to always remember the rafts making one rotation on the way down, but the most recent time I rode it I noticed that my raft spun a bunch of times on the way down. Three of my friends, who were all on a different raft, felt the same way.

This is how it used to be, at least when the ride first opened. I admit I probably haven't ridden it in ten years, but I remember them spinning a bunch of times down the drop.

^^I've always enjoyed the classic 'Dark' version of Space Mountain myself. But, I would assume that after Halloween has passed that Disney would likely switch back to the Hyperspace Mountain. Mainly because of the upcoming December 16th release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Disney is a master at promotions, and this tie in/cross promotion may be to good to pass up.

I think it means it's getting a Guardians of the Galaxy re-theme. Edited by ytterbiumanalyst

Don't like the idea of the re-theme though, Don't think it will match the rest of the area

Disney is most likely using this to create a superhero land expansion to DCA. I'm pretty sure they know what they are doing.

Wait, what? You do realize that the retheme was announced a while back, right?

No I didn't know it. Mainly cause i've had no internet connection for the past 2 months. So it must have slipped through.

 

So i assume most people like the idea of the re-theme then?

All the reactions on a recent Facebook post, and by all I mean ALL, are negative. The best one might be this mother that filmed the reaction of her little girl:

So no, people are not happy.

Seriously, its not the end of the world and I am excited for the new version of the ride. The ride will be better for it in the end as well.

 

My only issues are that the ride is so tall, its seen from most areas of the park, and now it will stick out much more. And, that the street car has a stop there, which will now seem odd. But really these are both kinda meh things to be bothered with anyways, lol.

 

But really, I have been on every version of this ride at every park that has one. And I think most people can agree this version is the weakest of them all (and Paris' clone). Tokyo and Orlando blow this one away. And, I think after the re-do, the ride will closely resemble the style and level of theming of Tokyo's.

I've been doing a lot of research in preparation for my post-WCB day at Disneyland, but I haven't found the answer to this question so far. If I take the monorail out to the marketplace for lunch, then take the monorail back in, how does that work for re-entry? Do I get a handstamp when getting on the monorail? When getting off? Do I show my ticket to get back in? Thanks.

At Disneyland Resort today representing* TPR!!!

 

 

Give me a shoutout if you're here too and want to meet up and say hi; I have lots of pins to trade!

 

Trip report of both parks to follow too! Lots of little changes along with Halloween theming have made the park look completely different (sort-of).

I thought I was taking "too many" photos of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, when I was there a few weeks ago.

 

Turns out I only took three but now, I'm glad I took those three photos!

ToT is going through what every ride/show closure goes through: everyone only cares about it now that it is leaving.

 

Reality is that it is a budget version of the original ToT built as a stopgap by Eisner in response to all the criticism DCA faced. Since I don't care about Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm totally indifferent on the overlay. I HOPE that it too is not just a cheap stopgap measure...
