Just got back after the grand opening. As of now there is no express. I know I saw the website too.

Express is not often available when an attraction first opens so for the near future, Express will not be accepted. Eventually it will...but not now.

Bluer101 and Metro West, thank you for your reply. So I need to arrive there once the park opens to avoid long line.

Awesome Day!
We DID see Miranda Cosgrove and the other two girls this morning...we stood in line for almost THREE hours though. We were on the "front row" until 5 minutesbefore MC came out...but then 200+ nice media folks and their kids, cousins, cousins kids....with their "media credentials" were allowed in front of us. There were NO signs, and NO US workers directioning much of anything. Still...my boy did see her from the "3rd" row. Got a few decent pics.
One of the workers did see what happened, and after the interviews and big wigs left, took us to the "express-line"-(which technically doesn't exist. ) a happy, albeit HOT-n-sweaty ending !!!
The ride is really nice, but they're still fighting tech issues ...as is Shrek, HRRR...lots of delays today.

I was on the other side of you in the regular line. My guess there was about 50 or so people in the express side that I saw. Wasn't to bad except all the technical difficulty in the beginning. We were in the next group after you guys.

We were at the park today, but I didn't get to ride it. The wait was 90 minutes, and my DS 12 just couldn't manage it -- total meltdown demanding to go back to the hotel. So I left with him, but the rest of the family got on and loved it. I think I'll do the breakfast later in the week.

How was the breakfast, buckeev?

i hope you two homies got to meet each other.........so kewl...!

if you do meet up later, take each other's picture at the same time.
then post them for us.


of course, the pics would probably only show us a picture of a person using the camera to take a picture.

my kind of excitement..........

GASP! You mean they are actually taking Express now? So soon? That's unheard of!

Surprised us too! Still waited about 20 or more minutes-in the sun-before entering the 1st pre-show area. ("Spoiler"...Yes...there are more than one.)... but they are well done.

That's great about express. We are heading there in about 30 minutes for the Superstar parade. We went to IOA this morning for water rides. Then headed to HRH for lunch and pool time. Then just returned to RPR to get showered up for tonight.

Express, here we come.
