    Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion

    Definitely planetary themed something. And the sleek architecture of the structure of the coaster implies it's not something fantastical...

    Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion

    Ok I have about 10 pages to catch up... but... am I crazy or is that dueling launch coaster... Star Trek? With Star Fleet above it and Chateau Picard dining to the left???

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS)

    I'm really not sure what it will be like fall, but this summer it has been a ghost town. Completely the opposite of what everyone thought.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS)

    People in CA are really annoyed that it's not opening this fall. Given how extremely dead it's been the last 2 months, I'm thinking shareholders aren't going to like the numbers that come out of Q4. By this time last year, nearly 1/4 the Halloween Party dates were sold out. As of now, not a...

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disneyland)

    I don't think anything in Uni LA can compare to Carthay, Lamplight Lounge, or Tropical Hideaway.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disneyland)

    Historically? Yes. Recently? No. Disneyland has revamped their food offerings considerably over the last 5 years. They are definitely above Seaworld and Three Broomsticks. Not fair for Knotts which is first a place that sells food (historically speaking). Knott's> Disneyland > SeaWorld > Uni...

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disneyland)

    There won't be AP previews. Paid AP "early access" (the week before or so), yes. Been a DL AP for 20 years. They stopped doing AP previews when Cars Land hit. Didn't do one for Guardians or anything on Pixar Pier. But they did do a $100 upcharge preview night for Guardians. And a $200 upcharge...

    Guardian's of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout

    There IS a Yondu appearance in Monsters After Dark, it's just not in the elevator portion of the attraction. While waiting in the main room of the Tivan Collection, security footage shows Yondu's ghost haunting areas of the Tivan compound.

    Nintendo Coming to Universal Parks

    Gosh, I look away for a year and everybody gets all chippy.

    Never reference The Godfather and then quote Godfather III. Never.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

    There's a reason Iron Man uses the same ride system... At least that will be the replacement for Disneyland. Not sure for you guys out there with the Uni contract and all.

    Pandora: The World of Avatar Announcement, Construction, & Preview Discussion

    No James Cameron does it for James Cameron. But that doesn't mean it's going to flop.

    Pandora: The World of Avatar Announcement, Construction, & Preview Discussion

    The best sequel of all time? Godfather 2 and Empire Strikes Back might have something to say about that...

    Pandora: The World of Avatar Announcement, Construction, & Preview Discussion

    I thought the AA was very impressive, my gf thought it was creepy as hell. I do think it's weird that they have no shot of the banshee vehicle (even if it was just extreme closeup teaser style).

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    Yes, I'm aware. I'm not a newb. That's the point. I checked attractions and waited a good deal of time before booking to ensure there were no surprises. Two weeks notice before a planned refurb for people paying thousands of dollars is a poor guest experience at best, unethical at worst. And...

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    I doubt it. If it was they wouldn't wait for such specific dates. It's a planned refurb that they didn't announce until after people's packages were already charged.

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    Oh I'm certain they don't. I wasn't trying to imply the customer service person was feeding me misinformation. Just that as a consumer I did my homework and wasn't simply an ignorant patron.

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    Sigh. No matter what I'm paying $500 or more to experience one ride. I can suck that up. I feel horrible for my gf tho as this has been her only wish for the past year.

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    My flights were $800. Changing your flight is $200 per person. Since the flight is so close, moving the date to even a week earlier or two weeks later creates an extra $200 difference in fares. So to change all together would make the total cost of my flights $1600.

    Forbidden Journey Refurbishment (Update: Early Dec)

    And normally I'd be totally cool. But I did my part. I was very diligent about checking for closures. November 1st came and nothing posted. Even chatted with an employee before purchasing. I made an informed, researched decision. They withheld information on their end to avoid losing money...
