Thanks for the pointer, I couldn't find anything on their site (which keeps crashing, so they may be updating it), but did find info here:
http://www.dayofdubai.com/news/dubai-parks-and-resorts-announces-new-operating-hours-and-packages-summer

Unfortunately not good for me as it only starts 21 May.

The good:
AED 195: admission to any one park with endless food and drink
AED 295: admission to any kind of 2 parks over eventually with endless food and drink (not sure what this means, but it's a direct quote)

The bad: Parks open for less hours and starts later. Though it is damn hot middle of the day so open longer is welcome.

LEGOLAND ® Dubai Daily 12pm- 8pm

I was at motiongate today and it was stupidly hot. In a month you won't want to be there too early.

I'll be there on May 9th. I Plan to do MotionGate from 11:00 then move onto IMG later.

I know I'm going to melt.

Motiongate Dubai is beginning the technical rehearsal period today for their brand new How to Train Your Dragon area.
The entire new "world" is absolutely breathtaking - photos just don't do it justice!

I'm sure DubaiDave will be posting lots of photos soon. In the meantime, will give everyone a few photos of the beautiful trains from the new headliner attraction, Dragon Gliders - an inverted powered coaster from Mack Rides

Heres a few photos from today. They are not the best quality as the lighting is pretty dark but it should give you an idea of the how to train your dragon area.
The dragon flyers ride is amazing with really good animatronics and scenes. It also is fairly fast in places and each of the three cars gives you a different ride experience.

HOLY CRAP! That looks like such a fun ride! I don't really know much about the movies at all but the ride seems like a lot of fun. A lot of different elements and good use of real effects and projections. AWESOME!
