    In addition to better performers the shows need a rewrite. Everything is too ham-fisted and contrived.

    Rumblings are September but as always that's subject to change/not being true at all.

    One thing to consider is this is essentially a soft opening for them except they can't just shut the doors and kick people out if something isn't working right. Having less guests in there now to work out the bugs and to get CM's acclimated is probably preferable.

    I'm sure the webpage about the reservations said there were no guarantees on anything being open.

    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

    That's the SoCal rankings (from a season passholder of two of them).

    I mean technically, every website says that when buying any theme park tickets normally.

    I could be wrong, but weren't people saying smugglers run wouldn't be on rails?
    I always thought it was going to be an on rail shooter due to the difficulties of giving people total freedom.
    I guess when disney hyped it up a bit when they said it was rendered in real time, but I suppose you could say that for any video game?

    While I agree Disney food is improving a lot, I personally still put it only above Six Flags. About half of Uni's food is very good, and half so-so... thereby edging out Disney by just a hair. My ranking:

    Knott's > Sea World > Uni > Disneyland > Six Flags

    I read that plunging the falcon up or down can definitely be “felt” in the cockpit...so maybe having a bad driver makes the ride much more thrilling...

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

    We can agree to disagree... personally, I wasn't all that impressed with Carthay, and Hideway is fine, but nothing special. Haven't tried Lamplight Lounge yet. But Id' rather do Three Broomsticks or even the cafe sandwhichs (which are surprisingly good) over the first two.

    Napa Rose is the best food at DLR.

    ^Yeah, but how often can one afford to eat there?

    Lots of expensive places have the best food. Have you tried not being poor? Do they allow you to order 3 kids meals as an adult? Would you like to get high for like the next four hours instead of the 3rd kids meal? Oh I don't actually... wait how much?

    Yeah - you're coming across like an ass.... Take a chill pill and exit the thread for a bit.

    To steer this thread back on topic...


    It seems CM blockouts have been lifted til the 23rd. I wonder if the optics of a dead Disneyland rubbed the suits the wrong way.

    Yep, but it shows what is coming. That was just a tease. The land was built with entertainment in mind. Those stages have permanent fire effects in place. This is just one of the performance areas too.

    Once crowds pick up after the reservation period ends Disney will be deploying the shows to draw guests away from other attractions in the land. Right now, they aren't necessary at all.

    Can confirm if you have bad pilots you can absolutely feel the difference. The couple on my first ride had no idea what they were doing and we were crashing left and right, therefore I was getting thrown around in my seat. (it made it super fun tbh) I had better pilots the second time around and it was a lot smoother. Still a few crashes but nothing quite as rough as the first time.
