    Temperatursturz

    February 27, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Guten Morgen aus dem Floridianischen Winter. Wir sind bei knapp über 10 Grad in den Hollywood Studios und versuchen nochmal unser Glück bei Rise of the Resistance.

    Ansonsten haben wir uns heute Parkhopping vorgenommen. Unter dem Motto „Hop until you drop“ wollen wir versuchen, heute nochmal alle 4 Parks zu besuchen. Im Idealfall endet unser letzter Tag dann heute im Magic Kingdom, bevor es morgen leider wieder nach Hause geht...Read more

    Snacks and Toy Story Mania

    January 29, 2020 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 46 °F

    Delicious snack before last ride in Hollywood. Key lime pie on a stick and Num num (warm) choc chip cookie/tart.

    The Key Lime Pie on a Stick was on my list of food to get. Took a bit to track down, but worth it.

    The chocolate coating is a bit thick, and honestly, it's more like a cheesecake with a hint of lime rather than an honest to goodness key lime pie, but if you think of it more as lime cheesecake on a stick, then it's awesome.

    I did get a few bites of Brenda's cookie. Wow. Awesome choice there!!!

    Toy Story Mania was great!!

    Brenda and I worked really well together and got some great scores. It's a fun ride, but your arm gets a bit of a workout from all the pulls to get the cannon to fire.

    Chilling in Galaxy's Edge

    January 29, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    Checking out all the cool details.

    This area has a lot of potential and hopefully it will eventually live up to its expectations.

    When it first opened, the idea was that the various "Cast Members" would interact with the people in the park, and be fed information like how people did on the Falcon ride, giving them kudos or razzing them depending on how they did (the ride gives you a score). I think they got lulled a bit thinking that the area wasn't super popular.

    What happened was, they have two rides there. They opened the Falcon ride first, and it was a fair amount of time before they opened their most ambitious ride yet, "Rise of the Resistance".

    It appears most people were waiting for BOTH rides to be opened before swarming the area, so now it's super crowded, and very difficult to get a boarding group for the ride.

    Thus, it's also difficult for Cast Members to really do a whole lot as there's an overpopulation in their space port.

    It is a really neat place to people watch, and sometimes guests are dressed so elaborate, that it's tough to tell them apart from the Cast Members :-)

    Frozen

    May 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Frozen was great - had live characters and played scenes from the movie with karaoke words on the screen. It was cute
    Met Olaf after the show and grabbed a picture
    Some Star Wars simulator was next - it was okay but pretty old compared to other rides we’ve been on.
    Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular show was next but it was a shit version of Movie Worlds Police Academy and we did t last long so it was time for a lunch break!

    Early Dinner at the drive in

    January 26, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    After doing Tower of Terror again, we're parking at the theater for some food.
    Very Diner-like menu. Hit the spot since we had later lunch and early morning.

    Toy Story Mania & Rockin’ Rollercoaster

    January 26, 2020 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 43 °F

    These were our first and second rides of the day. Walked right into Toy Story basically. One hour wait for Aerosmith Rockin Rollercoaster. Inside we saw this poster and HAD to take a photo.

    Hollywood Studios

    September 27, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Den Vormittag haben wir heute in den Hollywood Studios verbracht. Nachdem es heute so heiß ist, dass jede Bewegung anstrengend ist, haben wir viele Shows angeschaut.

    Ab Mittag sind wir dann zu Typhoon Lagoon geflüchtet, um uns im Wasser abzukühlen. Und jetzt geht es ins Magic Kingdom zum Feuerwerk und anschließend Shoppen...Read more

    Rise of the Resistance - The Ride

    January 26, 2020 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 57 °F

    The ride is pretty amazing. The "sets" are quite impressive, but overall, it's not going to be my favorite of the park.

    The amount of work and attention to detail is astounding, but the flow of the ride is a bit disjointed. So many mini-sections where you start and stop. It also tries to be a few other rides at the same time. Taking the drop from Tower of Terror, taking the simulator feel from Star Tours, but in the end, it seems to fail to deliver the best of those elements.

    Fun, yes, and I would have been really disappointed to have missed out on it, but I'm glad we are done and I don't have to work hard to try and get to ride it again :-)

    Pro tip for Kara and her crew. When attempting to get into a Boarding group, be sure to use the cell connection on the cell phone, not the park Wi-Fi. Since everyone is trying at the same time, they not only go fast but it just can't handle all the people trying to connect at the same time. Lesson learned for us, but thankfully, Brenda was able to work some magic and wrangle a pass at just the right time!!!
