And yes, Rob, I totally agree, the setup of Universal Orlando is very similar to the setup of Disneyland Resort. Just think how great it would be if Disneyland Resort onsite hotel guests got unlimited Fastpasses for the length of their stay as well....
However -- as much as I love reading your reports these last few days...I can't believe you have left us hanging with your World of Color teaser!!! You mentioned how bad it was, what...three times??? And then.....nothing. no pay off unless we come back tomorrow....its like getting in line for fast passes just to watch them cover up the machines when you are next in line!!!! :) I'm joking -- great job again! And thanks for taking us along on your trip!
@Tad I just wrote one really long report... Mr. Niles mercifully broke it up into five parts. World of Color should be in part four, and I only complained about the viewing area in this part... you'll have to wait and see what my family thought about the show itself.... ;)
@Anon As I wrote, we wanted to experience RSR for the very first time at night (it was dark by 7:00) which is why we tried to "time" our Fastpasses for the attraction. But as you noted our fall back was the single rider line. Thankfully it all worked out just fine.
I'm kidding!!!!! Love reading what you are writing and I am genuinely looking forward to part four! And apparently Five. :)
James, did you get a chance to see any of the Buena Vista entertainment or see / meet any of the "citizens"?
Other random trivia you probably already knew, Neil Patrick Harris is the instruction / countdown voice On California Screamin'.
@Jack Thanks.... and here's a clue about RSR: "AWESOME!"
@Jay Sadly, no. Other than the shows I mentioned, the Dapper Dans/Cadaver Dans at DL, some character meet 'n' greets, and parades, we did not get to interact much with the live performers. There was not enough time. Again, people who think they can fully experience Disney parks in just a few days, really don't "get it", do they? And, as for CA Screamin', I listen to the Coaster Radio podcast, so I know all about NPH! ;)
