Sorry for the off topic, but I don't think I heard about this. What fiasco?

Re: Off Kilter

I enjoyed Off Kilter and will be sorry to see it go. But why ax the fife & drum corps? Please tell me they're not replacing such an authentic, traditional American sound with the drivel that passes as modern pop music. None of the articles said anything about a replacement for it.

Re: Fast Pass+ and Annual Passes

You would need to buy them before you would be able to access the system and (if they use the same setup as DLR) once you get the cards your pass is valid. Back when you would get vouchers for the pass it would not activate until they gave you the card. Not sure if they've changed it in the last fe...

Re: Sounds Dangerous! Who esle misses it?

Nope. I only saw it once and the single thing I remember about it was how much I didn't like it. As I recall, I was bored.

Re: Favorite interaction with a cast member?

I have two that really stand out in my mind.... 1. Back in 2010, me and my older two children (DD11 & DS9 at the time) had just arrived at the Magic Kingdom to take advantage of evening extra magic hours. It had been raining pretty heavy for a few hours and the ground was very wet...as we were firs...

Re: Music you can't get outta your head.

I guess it does repeat but I'd assume the start and stop is dependent as well as the rotating mechanism. Maybe a fault in one doesn't notify the other components as a trouble and just assumes the room has rotated. From what I've seen, the scene is completely independent of the rotation. The scene j...

Re: Music you can't get outta your head.

:lol: Were you stuck in there long? I've heard stories of people having to watch the same scene several times. It wouldn't bother me, but I'm sure the average guest wouldn't want to go through the same scene more than once or twice... This has happened to me! I enjoy the attraction but seriously, a...

Re: Refurbishment News

We went on COP tonight. In the last scene, I think the best way to describe it was "Granddad's dead, but his spirit's still here." It must have been a broken neck line/servo/hinge or something. His head was just bent down 90 degrees with chin resting on chest and not moving. The audio from him was ...

Re: Refurbishment News

It might have been a "We are aware of the problem and are working to fix it" scenarios. Low priority means it will get fixed when they get time. Possibly, but not these particular cast members. The way they acted and asked about it I could tell they were hearing about it for the first time. They we...

Re: Another MagicBand question

Sorry for the delayed reply; we've been doing more important things. :mickey: We're not on property, so we didn't get magic bands by default. I have an AP though, so I can have one mailed AFTER I activated the pass (first visit) - this is why I couldn't do it before I got here. I checked and mailing...

Re: Another MagicBand question

So... just a quick update from the park. Yes, you can buy Magic Bands (of any color) in the park and attach them to your ticket. You keep the ticket and it still works. Annual Passholders get a ticket and then can order a Magic Band online (for free). I'm going to check tomorrow to see if they'll gi...

Wow, closed for the whole summer season? Isn't there a better time to do refurbishments?
