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

    Hate to steer this conversation away from Galaxy's Edge, but is this normal for early September crowd wise? I know the hurricane had to have played a part in these low crowd levels. Seems crazy that Smugglers Run is having 35-40 minute waits one week after opening.

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

    I think when I first heard about the build your lightsaber thing, I just brushed it off and said “200 dollars, Disney is crazy”. Then I fell down a rabbit hole of watching Galaxys Edge videos last night and now I’m like “SOLD!”. Curse you Disney!

    Future of Toon Lagoon

    Dudley is in such an embarrassing state. When I was on earlier this month, animatronics are missing, some not working. It’s in desperate need of a paint job.

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Early entry is just for Diagon. The Hogwarts Express doesn’t open until 9am with IOA

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    I hadn’t been following this thread because I assumed the craziness would die down by now. I come down in August every year and this was the rainiest I’ve seen it in quite some time. The last few years it’s been very minimal. Steady rain everyday last week. Going back to a few posts ago, sure...

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Took the train over to Hogsmeade yesterday shortly after opening. Looks like Hagrids opened with the park but the workers were saying it’d be a 5 hour wait. I probably got into the park at 9:10. So I wasn’t able to get on at all. I don’t know what Universal can do to fix this, but if your...

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Pretty bummed I’m not gonna be able to ride this. I kinda brushed off all of these stories about delayed openings and what not because I thought it wouldn’t be an issue by the time I came down. Still an issue. Line up about 90 mins before park opening only to find out there will be a delayed...

    Duff Bar

    Not my favorite beer but I always make it a priority to have a Duff Lite. I’m a Simpsons fan so I can’t not pay Moes a visit. It’s the same beer but I never actually sat at Duff Gardens. Might have to change that next week

    Universal Studios Florida's 30th Anniversary (2020)

    I’d love a shirt with that old school logo on it. Universal doesn’t really celebrate anniversaries for some reason. Feels like it was just the 25th anniversary now it’s the 30th

    Disney+ (Streaming Service)

    I’d like at some point if they put all those old school Mickey Mouse cartons on it. The list says “Mickey Mouse shorts” but I’m assuming it’s referring to those new ones. Those old cartoons are great. Also, really weird to see The Simpsons amongst all of that.

    Universal Orlando August 1 Press Conference

    What are the chances Universal scrapped early plans for this park and just make the new park completely Nintendo? Maybe that’s why these potential additions to IOA and USF kept getting scrapped? Just spitballing. Obviously there’s enough Nintendo IPs to satisfy an entire theme park worth of...

    The Lion King (Live-Action)

    It’s an impossible task to live up to the original Lion King. It’s easy to take a 50 year old movie like the Jungle Book and improve upon it. Lion King didn’t need such treatment. I haven’t seen it yet. But for whatever reason I just kind of soured on the movie after initially seeing the first...

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    I watched the POV vid. Looks good. Adding it in Orlando along with the coaster would be a great move. I think a lot of people expected the TRex and Indominous to actually fight......that seems hard to pull off. I’m sure something could be done to simulate it but it probably would require the...

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Ok gotcha. I go in August every year and there’s always early admission in both parks, except last year. Hoping Hagrids is back to operating on a regular schedule in 2 months time. I have no issue lining up earlier in the morning if I have to.

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    I am not sure. I’m just basing it off of my last time there in August and what I saw in this thread stating no early admission. Can anyone confirm that’s whats going on now? Alternating months? What’s the thought process behind that?

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Anyone have an answer to why they stopped doing this? This was the case last year even before Hagrids. IOA just stopped the early park admission completely. I’m hoping they incorporate that again soon, especially for Hagrids. I get a lot of you guys are local and don’t stay at the on-site...

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    I’m glad this is getting such great reviews. Way back when, I was super into the construction and everything surrounding Everest. Watched multiple on ride videos. So while I loved the ride the first time, there was no surprises. Besides the initial first few seconds of the ride Universal posted...

    MSHI soundtrack

    I’ve listened to that video. It’s essentially the entire loop. The only different songs are the ones the play when the heroes come out on the ATVs.

    E3 2019

    Jedi Fallen Order looks like a game I’ll be interested in. Looks like it plays like an Uncharted kind of game. Much prefer that over a fully open world game.
