1st - I hope everyone was OK . . . 2nd - I hope there was a picture crazy DISer there who got us some pics of the 'inside' of the ride with their cell phone while they were being evacuated!

Probably about as much as Spiderman broke down when it first opened, or Test Track when it did.

I am actually surprised how consistent FJ has been! It's been a great opening.

A family in front of me asked an employee how long and there reply was 90 minutes from here just to get into the WWoHP. The family shrieked and I being a nice person talked them into staying in line and to trust me. 15 minutes later we were in, and I was there hero lol.

The FJ queue was crazy long, and I have not followed the thread in regards to the wait times for it but out of the seven ( I think) times I have been since opening I have never seen it like this. Got two rides in, single rider was a walk on. I only did two because time was limited but I easily could have gotten 10 rides in within an hour or so. Seriously no one was using it! Anyways on to the pics and those wondering about FJ effects working and not working I am putting that in the FJ spoiler thread. Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Please can you tell me where to find the photos section. I've seen some really wonderful photos posted on this board from http://www.orlandounited.com but I can't find the photos on that website. Please help as we go next week and I want to see as many photos as I possibly can.

Thank you! I thought there must be a separate area of the website which I couldn't access but if the photos are on that thread it looks like I'll have a great time drooling my way through all 903 pages!!

Just a quick post to thank everyone for the great gouge on all the HP threads these last few months. Been lurking that long prepping for this week and it has been most helpful. Having a wonderful time and am happy to answer any questions I can. We are Disney vets but Universal noobs and are HP fans of various degrees--I've seen the films while DW has done both films and books. We did all HP rides, stores, and restaurants (well, restaurant) and can lend our perspective if anyone is interested.

I had forgotten how much Test Track broke down at first! DS loves this ride but for a while it looked like it would never run right.
