Published: May 24, 2014 at 1:11 PMReally anxious to hear feedback about Wonder Mountain's Guardian. If it is a hit, then Cedar Fair may advance more coaster/dark ride experiences at their parks around the nation. Would love to see my local Cedar Fair park get something new and unique like Wonder Mountain.

Published: May 25, 2014 at 3:28 PMI tried to watch the webcasts from both WDW and DLR. The feed from Magic Kingdom was pretty good quality, and it was nice to see the Electric parade without the 6'4" people standing in front of us as always happens to us anywhere in Orlando. The feeds from Disneyland were terrible quality- constantly freezing, and whenever there was any sort of flash of light (as happens during most of Fantasmic) the color went out and I was stuck watching a frozen mess of black-and-white pixels. Very disappointing. They should have had their friends at ABC come over and set up their cameras for them.
It was a good idea, but technically didn't work on my end.

Everything you can see at London and Hogsmeade Station are a hundred times better than any photos. A photo just cannot do this expansion justice. The sheer size & attention to detail are on another level. And the resort & park employees seem to be just as excited as we are. The one constant phrase I heard from employees we spoke to was "all hell is going to break loose when Diagon opens". This is going to be awesome.

Published: May 27, 2014 at 12:57 PMJust looked at an entire album of photos from a helicopter of Diagon Alley with the dragon up... this is going to be the single greatest addition to any theme park, anywhere.
You can finally see all the building detail from every angle. Absolutely amazing.
