Ok, now moving onto Disney's Hollywood Studios, what have you learned. Here are mine:

Jazz music becomes extremly creepy around the Tower of Terror

Listen to unnammed characters on the Great Movie Ride

Lights Motors Action is from France

Screaming in Sci Fi Dine in is Chic

Never trust a man in pink!

You are never getting to the Moon of Endor

Ordering Seafood, Elbows on the Table, or finishing/not finishing your food has consequences!

I have learned that

Indiana Jones is thrilling just once.

To never, NEVER point out the Tatooine Traders to a die hard Star Wars fan.

In order to eat in a car, you have to go inside to get outside for a seat.

Beware of vacancies at a certain hotel.

Fantasmic will have a longer wait than Peter Pan.

You lose your school spirit around the third time of a Pep rally run.

Classics need updates too.

This Pyra has learned that...
- trained my eyes to spot any 4 digit numbers at Toy Story
- normal people can really sing!
- Jedi teachers are VERY patient
- attractions make me wanna watch movies
- I STILLLLLLLLLLLLLL wish I went to school to be an animator
- never ride the elevator in a nice hotel during a thunderstorm

-You can actually take a boat to this park

-Drew Carrey is even worse in the dark

-Mickey is always the perfect end to a night

- PB&J shakes are Prime Time, baby!

- Free fall rides can be amazing.

- All coasters should be in the dark.

- Even Disney can't make American Idol entertaining.

- One Man's Dream is another man's great attraction!

Steven Tyler is not an actor.

Mickey should not leave his hat lying around. It was blocking my view.

If the Tower of Terror wasn't here, I'd probably never be again.

A "working studio" theme is lame when it isn't really a working studio.

Things I learned:

There are references to a Rabbit all around the park but I cant think of the name? Is it Robert, Ross or Rod?

The local Citizinery are great!

That this is a Hollywood that Never was but will always will be!

I can walk to EPCOT on a good sunny day.

That G-Force Records have really fast super strech limos.

I know how Aerosmith feels about their fans. And that Steven Tyler always has an idea!

I want to take a sledgehammer to that stupid hat!

Opel Corsas are apparently RWD ;)

All you need to build a climactic prop for Fantasmic is a couple scraps of plywood, some white paint, a few bottles of beer, and a free afternoon.

When you're driving down the street in Hollywood, a giant blue cone will block the street in front of you just before you get to the Chinese Theater.

The East LA interchange is composed of loops and barrel rolls.

Rod Serling doesn't look a day older.

Tower of terror and toy story are the best rides at DHS.

Things I learned at the Studios- How mean your co-workers can be. How painters in the mintenance paint shop and the at the scenic shop can be so un-kind and how they can tell visous lies that get a single father of two young daughters fired. Watch out around the Studios for these people- they will go to HR and tell lies about you to get you fired! It happened to me and I never did a thing wrong.

Is he being serious?

This park is great but its lacking two more ride attractions. Until it gets two more rides Id say this park is ranked #4 for me

Thats good, but this is a joke filled post on dumb stuff we learned at DHS. If you have any funny things, feel free to post em!

Hey, it's better than the post about the father of two getting fired because of crappy coworkers.

From Terri Pierce

I learned that-

There is nothing to hold on to in elevators except the person beside you.

Limos make great roller coasters.

There's no magic inside this hat- just pins.

You're never too old to go Unda the Sea.

One Man's Dream is very interesting. --and has a GREAT gift shop for special somethings.

Toys sell out quickly but is very worth the wait.

Pixar apparently only did one movie- Toy Story.

The back lot isn't so much a lot as a corner these days.

The Muppets gets better with age.

Not all disney food is created equal.

Indiana Jones is making a comeback- well sort of.

ALWAYS- Check the date on your times guide when referring to Fantasmic. Apparently they don't always get replenished with up to date information.

I learned that Rod Serling is still a god.
