Please tell me if the people allowed on MM have been regular park goers or just TMs. Also, do you know if park goers will be allowed to ride on Sunday/today?

If so, we may be willing to drive 3-4 hours out of our way to ride it. But I need to know FAST!

Thanks!
just dropped in to check if EMom did a Uturn and came back.....for the ride.

bluer posted a site that has spoilers for the minionion attraction.

the dance party is at the end of the video.

http://www.orlandounited.com/forums/...648#post232648


this has spoilers in it so don't watch it if you want to do the ride first.

this site only has the preshow and dance floor room, then gift shop in it.

no recordings were done on the ride itself.

The ride opened at 2 today. Rumors are going around saying if the dance party is a flop, they'll turn it into a M&G.

Indeed, the ride is now in tech rehearsal mode. That was faster than I anticipated. So if you have the chance to ride it, do so! It'll be officially open soon enough.

I got to ride tonight!! There were some tech problems that resulted in a lot of standing around waiting for doors to open, but none during the ride portion itself.

Have to say, I hope they keep the dance party. It was really adorable! I'd like to see more minions there - they had 2 - but love the chance for informal interaction. I danced with a minion!

This is not a blockbuster, it's not new technology, but it does use really good 3D with the fancy glasses like they have a spiderman, and it's a load of fun.

I thought they would be Star Tours 3D glasses.... Spider-Man's glasses don't fit well over my perscription ones

EMom
Comes from a long line of all fork hole pokers
I had the auburn haired Chrissy doll whose hair grew. She lost most of it in an incense fire. Don't ask

We did not do a U turn after I read theses posts. If it opened at two yesterday, then we made the right choice. I talked to some Universal folks who seemed "in the know" on Wednesday and KNEW the soft opening was soon... But too late for me. More on that when I can access a decent keyboard.

My son just asked me...
"120 minutes isn't too long, is it?"
He didn't even reference D-Me, but I knew what he was getting at. He still doesn't "know" that I'm gonna take him back to Orlando this summer.....this HOT summer!
This oughtta be fun!
He's wearing out the keyboard searching for US new info!
