Re: What do you do with your Magic Bands?

I'm confused, can you re use the magic bands if you aren't a annual pass holder? I don't think so. And I've read where people get new bands if they are doing a split stay, one set for the first hotel, another for the second hotel stay. Yes, you can. We did it on our trip last month. I had an annual...

Re: What do you do with your Magic Bands?

So, this was our second trip with the Magic Bands and we picked different colors from our last trip. Just to change things up. Also, my girlfriend got a slider for hers and we both got the bandits for ours. So I just wondered what do you guys do with your bands? If anything? We kept them and used t...

(yes we did this once we knew where we were moving to...and the answer is 5 hours and 55 minutes without traffic :) )
Yes! I have done this on several occasions.

Dunno if you realize this, but there are already two screens for Soarin'. They're adding a third.

Re: New Peter Pan Queue

Just got back and we waited once at the Peter Pan queue just to see it. It is very well done and has some interactive parts and some surprises to keep guests entertained. It definitely brought us in to the spirit of the attraction. Plus, air conditioning never hurts. Good change!

Re: Backlot Tour Closing

I've done the Harbor Attack cast twice. The first time I was by myself, so it was cool. The second time I had the wife and kids along, so it was the most awesome thing ever. (My kids are still young enough to think that.) :)

Re: i'll say it again, i HATE judi dench spaceship earth

No one in the world says "Like a grand and miraculous spaceship..." like Jeremy Irons. Couldn't agree more! Or "on this, our Spaceship Earth". lets face it....Jeremy could read the phone book (if there are any of those still around..) and make it sound interesting. I can hear it now... wow. :)

Re: DHS to be renamed again?!

yeah...the problem with "Studios" is that there are no movies or shows filmed there and almost all references to the way a studio or film set works have been removed in the past decade and a half so the name "Studios" is incorrect when describing the park as it is today actually the more I think ab...

Re: Moms hire handicapped tour guides so kids can Cut Lines

The way you describe it sounds like a near-perfect system. It doesn't lend itself to abuse, but it honors the special needs some have. It's too bad some self-entitled people feel the world should revolve around them.

I wish that were true, but my kids would beg to differ.
