Monday December 23rd is Festivus day. This is the day Airing of Grievances so we can tell Theme Parks what we actually want to say. Anything you want-- just let them have it…

I will begin with my fight against High prices for parking and no option for reducing the cost or pre-buying parking days to lower the average per day cost…

PS – No Black Fish talk Allowed.

My grievance is with SF GrAdv for having the cojones to close in the winter.

I want to avoid having to pay to park at a Universal hotel.

There, I just wanted to beat someone else to saying that.

My grievance is with theme parks treating the news of new rides and attractions like the most classified Cold War nuclear secrets. We know something is being built, we can see it happening in front of our eyes, nothing really is 'poof' it magically appears. Details can wait but talk about the big picture.

My grievance is with Disney not building a park like Tokyo DisneySea in the Disney World complex. I don't want more princess meet and greets, I want Journey to the Center of the Earth!

My airing of grievences is Universal keep repeating the same line "we are faster" whenever they have a question or press event on a new attraction.

High parking fees at the Universal Orlando hotels

Walt Disney World's use of paper plates and plastic utensils (Disneyland uses the real stuff)

No unlimited free parking benefit on Universal Studios Hollywood annual passes

No Universal version of Disney's Premier Passport (i.e. unlimited annual admission to UOR and USH)

People who keep attributing "If you can dream it, you can do it" to Walt Disney

People who keep buying crappy hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken nuggets and pizza at theme parks, *and* complaining when parks actually try to offer anything better

Parks that go cheap on restroom fixtures. (You'll spend more in the long run to keep cheap fixtures clean and in repair)

The price of a beer - Arrrrgggg….

Lack of Thrill rides or just One real big coaster from Disney parks. Maybe a ride like Montu or something.

I gotta agree with the food problem with Robert. SFGA is the prime example!
