Rode Minions this morning,

and I couldn't see the screen

The lady in front of me was very tall! The 3D effect was lost on her head.
My kids enjoyed the ride, so it was worth it. We went as soon as the parked and did not have to wait. I wanted to enjoy the rest of the park so we didn't go on again. The next time we do go I plan to ask the CM if I can sit in the front car.

Just heard a rumor that The Today show folks are here to do a feed from the park tomorrow . Tried to confirm, but I got a little preoccupied with things...the Simpsons, MIb, Hollywood Rip Ride...
Best thing all day to me was the Lagoon show tonight. Absolutely fantastic..very close to Eocot's Illuminations...( smaller fireworks of course).
The boy also rode HRRR, to the total shock of all of his sisters...(who chose to not come on the road adventure-"too hot")

GRAND OPENING TOMORROW! Character Breakfast, so getting' into the park a little bit early and get another D-Me ride. Then the Minions and Gru,..plus whoever else shows up to try to sneak a bite!

So glad to hear that the Lagoon show was a hit with you. Don't understand why some people think it is so lame.

We saw the lagoon show a few nights ago and thought it was good too.

Saw the Today show this morning and yep...they were there! They even showed the cars but I didn't pay enough attention so am wondering how many those cars seat? I would hate for myself and the youngest to not be able to see well. There are 5 of us....anyone know how many they seat?

Their are 8 total to a car, 4 to a row. I would ask the CM if you can sit in the front row. Have the tallest sit in the back row.

Have Fun!!!!!

Do they accept onsite hotel FOTL? I heard the new attraction should be excluded but I saw it is one of the participating ride in the official website.
