I've used Undercover Tourist quite a bit and would recommend them. The old price tickets are only until they run out of them, so I would buy them soon. I did have an issue once with the ticket not working. I called them and they had a live person who took care of it in just 10 minutes. I was glad they had a live person and was able to take care of it right away and I've been recommending them since!

Evidently Space Mountain has been closed since Tuesday afternoon since someone decided to force himself out of the train while it was in motion.

Usually you hear this type of story on flumes where there aren't restraints and isn't that the reason why WDW's Splash Mountain got lap bars?

Space Mountain has a basic lap bar. The employees don't physically pull on the lap bar, but they do spot check and ask the riders to pull it up for them.

I love how the second part of that URL just says entertainment.

Like, I know that because the article is about Disneyland it falls under that category, but the story is so stupidly funny that it's accurate :lol:

The Space Mountain incident leaves me with so many questions. Like how cognitively impaired he was, if he was forced on the ride against his will, if he had some type of supervision (and how much supervision can be imposed upon a 20 year old adult), if this could be a catalyst for more stringent rules for mentally impaired patrons (which would be terrible imo), etc;

You're overthinking this by a lot. Clearly a one-off situation. State would not have approved re-opening after a short amount of time if there was anything more to the story.

I was at California Adventure today and I have to say Hollywood backlot is horrendous. I can’t name a single attraction there. A lot of people flock the area because they just spent $135 to get in the park yet there is not one attraction worth being there. Yes, I understand that guardians is back there and previously TOT but seriously this may be the worst Disney “land” of all time. The muppets building is unused and so is the millionaire building. It’s always a topic of how valuable the Anaheim space is yet I see a lot of unused land. And now throw in the AMC theater, rainforest and espn zone restaurants just sitting there. Disney needs to stop complaining about no land and start doing something with the land they got!!

Disney just finished up spending $1 billion to transform DCA and another $1 billion to build Star Wars. I never once heard a complaint of being landlocked.

I also suspect you will see the end of the Hollywood backlot in the next wave of expansion after the under construction replacement for bugs life is done.

In the short term, they usually do overlays of the area with night time entertainment to keep it interesting.
