    WNW - GC upgrade ideas

    Change up Splash Cash to be like MagicBands with a link to a regular card, that way you’re not loading money on or having to recover what you didn’t spend when you’re done for the day. And maybe start trying to put a theme in to an area. Disney have a water park based on winter, Universal’s is based around a Volcano, so the net is pretty wide. I’d just like to see either some shade over the concrete footpaths, or misters keeping it wet so you don’t burn your feet walking between attractions.

    The Off Topic Topic

    So take this with a grain of salt, but I got an Uber out of Disney World a few days ago and my driver was telling me that her husband had just retired. She also thought there was 100% a Disney park happening in Australia because they had been asking her husband to go. He was involved in the initial build at Shanghai and reportedly turned them down for the Aus trip to spend more time closer to home. I’m taking it as though they’re keeping an eye on things down here.

    Wipeout is closed for good (retired)

    Pretty sure Wipeout was in fact a Vekoma Waikiki Wave, not a Top Spin. Also, sitting areas are supposed to be a selling feature on right? We’ll have a deck installed soon at this rate. Any thoughts on where you might situate a library? Tiger Island is probably a good tranquil spot for a drawing room...

    The way they’re going they should switch to a pay-per-ride model, that’s how baby parks tend to work best IMO.

    Their real estate agent maybe?
  7. If Dreamworld were to hit the market, do you think Village would buy it? Just for the larger parcel of land with better proximity to public transport even?

    Walt Disney World Holiday

    Thanks for the info guys. All suggestions are basically what I was expecting to hear. I probably will end up visiting Universal - I’m staying at the Holiday Inn opposite on my non-Disney nights.
  9. Hi All, I decided that for my 33rd birthday I'd take myself to Disneyworld. Then in my searching discovered that my birthday falls on Memorial Day long weekend, so decided to go just prior to that, and then visit Disneyland Paris for my actual birthday. My 60 days in advance Fast Pass Reservation date is fast approaching, and having never been to Disney World before, I'm interested to hear what previous visitors to the parks would recommend as selections for the initial 3 fast passes for each park. For those interested in the itinerary, I arrive in Orlando the day before I'm booked at Disney, so I intend to do hotel check-in and head straight for the park. Magic Kingdom is open until 11pm that night for hotel guests, so that's my day 1 park. Day 2 I'm thinking Animal Kingdom, Day 3 at Epcot, Day 4 is Hollywood Studios. Day 5 and 6 are open at this stage. I haven't bought Park Hopper and will add the upgrade on for those last 2 days if I feel the need to hit up more than one park per day, but that's a play it by ear decision. I'm staying at Pop Century, and secretly hoping the Skyliner will be running by the last half of May. I then have two more nights in Orlando before I fly out again. Am considering Universal tickets, but nothing confirmed for those days yet. I've been to DLP before, so am pretty set for how to handle that one. So, what would you be selecting for your first three fast passes for each park?
  10. I really would like to see a Freestyle installed in this country.

    Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb

    I think they need to decide if they want to be fully immersive like Universal attractions are, or if they want to hold onto the Movie Studio identity and let it look like a sound stage.
  12. The thing I’ve found that enthusiasts tend to love about woodies is the rickety nature of the support structure. Given the current climate that doesn’t sound ideal from a PR perspective. Id like to see a California Screaming style ride - steel track on a trussed support giving it the Older style appearance, particularly if the board walk goes ahead.
  13. Maybe Village can pick up Dreamworld and use it as a car park, then build a monorail or use buses to shuttle people to the park. They can then expand into their current car park at Movieworld.

    Disneyland Paris - Tip and Tricks?

    If the hotel you’re staying in is officially Disney you can get your shopping delivered there, otherwise you can usually get it sent to the gate for you to pick up on your way out

    Disneyland Paris - Tip and Tricks?

    Head to Studios first. Grab a fast pass for Ratatouille during the early hours then line up for Crush’s Coaster. Standby queues for Tower and Rock’n are usually pretty quick. Once in Disneyland Park grab your fast pass for Big Thunder (best version in the world IMO) then go ride Space Mountain as long as standby isn’t too long. Most everything else has reasonable lines. Earl of Sandwich is my pick for breakfast at Disney Village, or McDonalds has some tasty options. Make sure you’re in Disneyland park for the castle projection/fireworks show too!
