    Walt Disney World for Newbies

    There is the Coca Cola store in Disney Springs which has a selection of the international drinks that were offered at club cool, but no Beverly (un)fortunately. Club Cool will return though in a new location as part of EPCOT’s redevelopment.

    Raging Waters Sydney new waterslide update

    I remembered seeing a person post on their page asking about the rule change, and I went back to find their response which according to them is a change in manufacturers guidelines

    Ohh, this is my specific area of expertise. I worked that ride back in 2016. So the orange side will have you feel 2.5g’s when it’s spinning at its maximum speed of about 60km/h. It does 3 spins like this lasting around 30 seconds each, total ride time is around 4min 20sec. It is also a pretty enclosed space inside the capsule, so not recommended if you have claustrophobia (if you do and want to try it, let the cast member know and they can close the capsule for a few seconds and then re-open it to check if you’re okay with how enclosed it is). With all that said, it’s a great ride experience and really thrilling. The best way to avoid motion sickness on the ride is to always keep looking straight ahead at the screen.

    Walt Disney World Skyliner incident

    Ok, so I made a mistake since I don’t post here often. You could’ve simply said that straight up instead of being a smartass about it. If I could edit the post, I would. So I’ll add the credit here to please you. https://cruisingtheparks.com/2019/10/05/breaking-incident/

    Star Wars Galaxy Edge - Opening

    Pretty much sounds like it, except with a result that changes based on guest participation whereas Mission space is just "computer override" -> "congratulations, you made it to mars" if you don't push your button on time. Which does make me wonder what happens in the case of not having a full "crew" for your ride on smugglers run.

    Sky Voyager Discussion

    I guess the problem here is that the billboard doesn't say "coming/opening soon" or "now open", so people who see the advertisement would most likely assume that they're advertising an open attraction.

    What's gone wrong with SkyVoyager?

    Ah yes, the yearly pollen attack at EPCOT.

    Walt Disney World Holiday

    Yeah, its a bit about gaming the system and that most of the tier 2 rides at EPCOT will 90% of the time be walk on's. Mission: SPACE is a weird one because the More Intense side can get multiple delays in rapid succession from people vomiting which is why a fastpass for it can be handy if there is a downtime. I'm not entirely a fan of the tiered system but I can understand why it is needed so that everyone has the chance to book a fastpass for the more popular attractions.

    Walt Disney World Holiday

    With the way EPCOT works their tiered fastpasses, Spaceship Earth is basically a burn card and why you'll see it in my list. The only other rides you have in the tier 2 passes are Mission: SPACE (my other choice), living with the land, Nemo, Pixar short films, figment and turtle talk.

    Walt Disney World Holiday

    My choices for fastpass selection MK: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain EPCOT: Test Track, Mission: SPACE, Spaceship Earth HS: Slinky Dog Dash (newly opened), Rock n Rollercoaster, Tower of Terror AK: Flight of Passage, Kilaminjaro Safari, Expedition Everest I was a Cast Member at Mission: SPACE back in 2016 so if you have any questions about the parks I can try and do my best to answer them.

    Dreamworld - 2017 "exciting" "experiences"

    It's pretty much this. I remember seeing construction zones backstage for the Frozen Ever After ride at EPCOT when I worked there. I didn't see what signs they had up exactly because I never had to go past that area (I could see them from the area I had to walk through to get to my break room), but I do recall seeing some signs on the fence that was at the entrance to the construction zone. All the access points will be from some backstage area.
