    I’m not saying Disney would care or not. I’m just saying this park is in no way convenient for UOR guests.

    Also, do you really think UOR really wants to be sending people up to Disney’s neck of the woods? It just makes no sense and I’d bet A LOT of money that it won’t happen.

    They’re starting to implement a few discounts, including their Early Bird Special. Tickets are only $25 at the booth if you arrive before 11:00 am (Mon-Thurs). At that price point, I’m willing to give it a shot.

    Can anyone update on how the wearable tech is working?

    So far from what I’ve seen it’s gotten better with the tech functionality. Creating and linking your account can be a pain and consistently getting your ride pictures as opposed to nothing or even another family’s pics is a bit troubling, but for the first month and a half it’s definitely not a bad start.

    Just to note, Island H20 Live does not seem to be hitting the attendance peaks it was striving for. It consistently draws small crowds on weekends and smaller crowds on weekdays.

    The two slides that were Double Person tubes only now allow Single Person Tubes. This does fix one of the major issues of the park being the lack of attractions for single riders.

    They have been gradually adding more shade to the adult pool and most dining areas. I have also noticed them rolling out more minor quality of life changes to Vantage-band touchpads on slides and integration with lights and sounds.

    They have begun to do movie nights on the big screen at the Wave Pool, they’ve played Wreck-It Ralph 2, Incredibles 2, and Moana so far. I’ve also seen parents buy out time on the screen to show “Happy Birthday” messages to their kids.

    I’ve been to the park more than a few times and I have never seen someone go up and use the indoor “Be Live!” booths around the park. Either they need to better explain what those things are or they were a big waste of money.
