My youngest sister went last night and had a great time. It was her first time going on the Forbidden Journey and all she could say, AMAZING!!! She is a pass holder for all the Orlando parks, but is a wimp when it comes to certain attractions. In total it was her first time on the FJ, Spiderman, Dr Doom, ROTM, and the Hulk.

Nothing too interesting, but here is some kid's video blog rundown of his experiences at Uni's Grad Bash. Also, who wears a coat like that 80 degree Orlando heat in the parks? :stunned:

Well yestertday it was pouring rain, windy, and mild. I'm surprised he got such a good video while it was so rainy.

For whomever may be interested, this is a pretty neat video taken on stage at the Music Plaza event for Grad Bash. People get packed in the audience like sardines!

My school had Gradbash at IOA...but I already had an annual pass so I skipped out. I've heard good things from students, terrible things from team members.

My Grad Bash is on the 4th, I'm hoping for good weather.
Same, actually. :look: I'm the school's unofficial tour guide. We're doing the Studios pre-party so should have a head start on Mummy & Rockit. Any recommendations on ride orders/observations of crowd patterns? We're gonna try and hit everything once and then just enjoy the party. Heard waits were crazy this weekend... any feedback? Pitbull/Khaled any good?

Also, any final list of opened attractions?

Okay guys -

As I've stated before, I'm heading to tomorrow's Grad Bash. I'll be acting as an unofficial tour guide for our school (I have a much-touted reputation as the theme park guru, heh) and I plan to tweet my experiences throughout the event. If you're interested, feel free to me follow me @KyleTague on twitter. Link here:

As usual, there will be a full, detailed written report when I return.

I might unknowingly see you there then as I'm going tomorrow too.
