Ahh, either way, we should be good then ~ thanks! :D

While I love my state of Califorina, I would much rather see a new film in its place.

I think TSM is similar...in that the lines aren't generally that long at times...whereas the only time the wait is less than an hour at DHS is if you get there at rope drop...and you are one of the first people to get in line.

Pfft. Only an hour? You should see how TSM is in Tokyo DisneySea - it makes the DHS queues look tiny. This picture was taken just 25 minutes after the park opened. By the time I got to the FP machine about 5 minutes after that photo, the FP time had gone up another hour and thirty-five minutes (my FP was 16:40, it was going up in increments of 5 minutes at a time - very quickly). Shortly after, all FPs were gone. And I don't recall ever seeing the standby line less than 100 minutes in all the time I was there.

And that was on a quiet day.

That is CRAZY. The time, not being Woody's snack. I think TSM is a really fun thing to do. Really, I do. But I have an exceptionally difficult time justifying that kind of park time lost for 2 minutes of arcade games that are identical to the Wii game. If you're one who doesn't mind the wait, more power to ya. Not me. :)

Well not identical, since the graphics of a wii are weaker and I think some of the voice talent did not want to do the game/Disney didn't want to pay for them. :D

TSM is one of those rides that I think just has a terrible flow rate for people, even on a super slow day in the middle of January at DCA, you can still expect a 30-45 min wait.

Meh, I've got the Wii game. It's nowhere near as fun as the actual attraction. If you take the time to get yourself a fastpass, it's not bad. I did have to queue for 30 minutes at Tokyo DisneySea to get the fastpass, but when I turned up for the ride, I only waited 5 minutes. Tokyo has attraction operations down to a fine art - they're insanely efficient.

At Disney's Hollywood Studios, I usually just dive in the standby line at rope drop, or get a fastpass. I knew from my research that such tactics might not work the same at Tokyo DisneySea with how busy the parks get and how much the Japanese like queueing for things, but I wasn't quite prepared for just how crazy it was. (Seriously, people stake out spots for the parade in Tokyo Disneyland over FOUR HOURS before it starts). Having said that, I did manage to make it work with not having to queue much, but still get on everything (through a mixture of tactical fastpassing and cunning timing*) :D

* OK, I may have made that sound more exciting than it actually was :lol:

And at DCA the ride, depending on the day, may not open with the rest of the park, and has no fast-passes (at one point they tried single riders) so outside of the handicapped you will be waiting for a while.

Back on the original topic, the only reason I would care for a new film is to get it into a higher definition format (maybe the new HD4K format). I strain my eyes every time to figure out the hull number on the cruiser in the San Diego scene, but it's way too blurry.

Are you talking about the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)? Odds are every single ship it noted somewhere on fansites since they dissect everything.

The call is for better projection system. No clue if it will be the HD4K but they are saying a full digital HD system. Right now digital would be great as they do still use 48 fps HD film projectors. Thus all the dust spots you will see.

No, that's the carrier. I'm talking about the Ticonderoga-class cruiser that is steaming in the channel. I've searched everywhere on the web, but no one has any information.

If you scroll down here you can find the hull numbers of all of the ships in the fleet in San Diego.

I tried looking for the hull number as well...but it's just too blurry like you said.
