    It's kind of a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation for non-locals, because if you just restrict it to guests staying on-site, all that means then is that locals just book a night or two for the parties (like we did the first year) and that results in less resort availability.

    I'm really looking forward to the Animal Kingdom party this year, I'm hoping it will be relatively manageable to get onto Flight of Passage.

    I'm there Sept 6 @Mr. EPCOT - drinks on me :D

    @Nick C. have a friend I'm bringing that's local, otherwise, you couldve piggybacked on my 6- sorry! My December 11th @ Epcot will have 2 slots though ;)


    I look forward to riding Miss Adventure Falls with my youngest (3)- shes only 41", but will go down any slide and is a good swimmer. So having another ride for her hits the spot perfectly. I'm fearing my VB trip in Sept, because if you aren't 42"- you can't ride squat except the lazy river/wave pool/kids area. Typhoon Lagoon is massively better for the under 42" crowd.

    It's all good, might have to take you up on that Epcot offer (or at least meet up) depending on if I get in or not. ;)

    And yeah, Typhoon is definitely more of a "family water park". I look at it how I look at Big Thunder mountain... It's incredibly themed and it has some nice thrill moments peppered in, but the park's ride collection as a whole is sort of like baby steps towards the type of rides you'll find at Volcano Bay, Aquatica or even some at Blizzard Beach.

    Went on it last Wednesday. I give it one large "meh". Also first time on Crushs which is another resounding "meh".
    TL just doesn't have many thrilling rides. I'd say Miss adventure was my 2nd to bottom ride- with the blue single person raft ride being the worst by far.

    My wife liked it, so did my 3 year old- and almost everyone we talked to in other lines "loved it"- so it definitely hits the mark. But if you want speed, look elsewhere.

    It was in terrible shape before they finally closed it. Hopefully something new goes here too. Please draw people from Volcano Bay. Please.

    Plan is to expand the bar back there during the refurb, add secluded lounge-y areas, making something akin to the adult deck on DCL ... only it won't actually be limited to guests 18+ (mores the pity). They've been doing live music on the weekends back there as part of this--think a steel drum player or acoustic Buffett cover guy. It's an interesting strategy, we'll see if it pays off.

    Do they cover it up? Or does it go the escalator > stairs route and become a statue.

    Yes, it's covered up by a scrim. The audio from the AA is still able to be heard as you pass by.
