This would give us time to go ride another ride, get a snack...etc. when we returned to the ride, we would either go into the express line, or in the event that that line was still long, we were allowed to go "FOTL". It wasn't always the same at different attractions, but it did help a few times. Go to guest services, and tell them your situation and what they can do to make your trip more enjoyable for both your son and his family members with y'all ....they want you to have a good time,,and they want you back. We really appreciate the fact that both US and WDW offer these options for our son. We don't "abuse" the GACs, but it's reassuring to know it is available to bail us out in certain situations.
Thanks for your helpful reply! We would never abuse the GAC either, but it is nice to know the option is there in case my son is having a bad moment. His mood can change on a dime. Thanks again!

You waited 10 minutes for them to clear the row? Why didn't you just walk around? Perhaps it wasn't their language barrier, but something else going on. I mean, you don't have to speak English to notice the theater emptying.

At least the minion had an easy out. HHN scareactors have it way worse. Still, that's horrible that that happened. She (the person in the minion costume is probably female due to size) can get hurt in that costume!

Someone who's been down there since it opened can probably give you a better answer, but....

I'm thinking that since there are stationary seats, there wouldn't be a height requirement. If the child is too small to safely ride the motion seats, you can always request to be put into the stationary ones.

40 inches. If you don't meet the height requirement, you will have to sit in a stationary seat in the front.

Thanks! I think we'll have to do this one twice before we move on.

I feel for the HHN actors and all of the other characters (one of my best friends does both here at Universal Hollywood), but as someone who knows how the scareactors feel, perhaps you can tell me what to do when the reverse is true? They always tell you they won't touch you, but there is apparently something about me that screams "mess with me!" They don't just touch me they attack me...I had two chainsaws literally pushed to the sides of my head last year. And no I am not a runner screamer...cause I understand why they mess with those people!
