P. 623: Universal's Mardi Gras 2023 details announced!

Recommended Posts

Does it really take the investments of a competitor to make them reinvest in their own image when they should be doing that anyways? I want to move to California!

 

Uhm, do you REALLY think we'd have DHS without USF? OR DAK without BGA/SWO?

 

Do you think Disney wants to include Magical Express (and the cost associated with it) when you book an on-site hotel? Absolutely not. It's all to keep you on Disney property. Why go to Universal Studios when you have Disney studios. Why go to Busch Gardens Africa when you can go to Africa at Disney. Why go to Harry Potter Land when you can go visit lands for 5 Disney princesses at Disney?

 

Remember, not everybody thinks like us and Disney knows this.

NEWS: Man Leaves Child in Bushes at Universal Orlando to look for his wife

He May Not Win Father Of The Year

 

Dad charged for leaving baby in amusement park

By The Associated Press

Monday, March 15, 2010

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The father of a 4-month-old girl was charged with child neglect after police say he left the infant for two hours in bushes near Universal Studios in Orlando while he searched for the baby's mother.

 

Charles Gohde, 29, was charged with child neglect without great bodily harm Sunday. He has since bonded out of jail.

 

Police reports say a Universal Studios employee found the crying child in her stroller in the bushes late Saturday. The infant was examined and appeared to be healthy, but was taken to a nearby hospital for an evaluation.

 

The child is now in the custody of the Department of Children and Families.

Like it has been said before, people need to be evaluated and licenced before they can have a child. China is correct in this department, IMO. I have 7 siblings between 2 houses (parents split and both remarried) and I am the oldest of them all and it sucks, but my biological parents are teachers (one teaches 11th grade math and the other teaches 6th grade science) and my two step parents are district managers for American Eagle and Starbucks. So they have the experience to handle that many kids. Or I have to deal with the little brats.

I am sure there is much more to this story. It makes no sense to leave a child period and especially for a weird ass reason like "to look for the mother."

 

I'm sure by "to look for the mother" he really meant "go get drunk at the strip club". But hey, that's just me. What would I know?

I was thinking the same thing, except I was thinking more along the lines of crack or meth. Really, this story makes me want to vomit. I'd take that poor baby in, but DCF would probably force her to go back to her "parents" after they attended a parenting class, or something.

People never cease to amaze me.

 

Of course, if the story was "Man leaves child in bushes at Wal Mart" would we REALLY be surprised?

 

Hate to say it, but Universal is basically the Wal Mart of theme parks in attracting the lowest common denominator. Not to mention it was Mardi Gras.

 

so....

Wizarding World of Harry Potter Grand Opening Date Will Be Revealed March 25th!

 

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Universal Orlando is preparing to reveal more details about its Wizarding World of Harry Potter -- including when the grand opening will be.

 

The big theme park announcement about its new attraction within Islands of Adventure will be made on Thursday, March 25, a Universal spokesman said.

 

Among the details promised next week are facts about Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, the area's signature "dark" ride that's built into the Hogwarts Castle area of Wizarding World.

 

The company has been tight-lipped on most details, especially on when guests could expect to visit the new area. Its official opening date has been vague -- spring 2010 – but in recent weeks, Universal has begun selling Potter-oriented vacation packages for as soon as May 28.

 

Very exciting news! Message boards around the world will be going crazy March 25th

The way this is being pressed it had better be better than Spidey. I dont like "The most incredible theme park experience ever" part, thats a little too far for my taste. As you can see the hate 13 is getting for being over hyped may come to Potter.

So there's a press release about a press release? Wow, how meta.

 

All the chains do the same thing. ...Cedar Fair, Six Flags, Disney, etc. It's all about the hype.

...Of course they are going to hype up their new attractions. As for the "The most incredible theme park experience ever part", I believe they are talking about the new themed land as a whole, not just the ride inside the castle.
