That was pretty cool. I didn't quite get how they could use the same cars over again with explosions.... now I know.

We learn something new everyday!

I was actually very impressed with it myself. This is definitely a cheaper way to blow up stuff than to have to buy 20 of the same exact car.

Well, another myth about the exploding cars in the movies blown. I love this kind of stuff! I really like the exploding stuff in the movies. I assumed they used lots of cars or lots of cg. The dancing cars looked cool!

Okay! Now that I've beaten my computer and actually am able to log in....

I just caught up on the official TR posts of this thread and I know I should go back and catch up on the comments, but I had to comment on one thing.

Or two - we'll see.

You two seem like an amalgimation of Me&DH and another couple we've gone with to Disney a couple of times. (They are there right now & I shouldn't be jealous because we just got back last month and they haven't been for, like, 4 years. But you know I am.) It's a little wierd. But in a cool way. Like going with a good bud!

Our vacation style sounds the same, just with less beer. (DH can't drink and every time I think about it, the siren song of my drug of choice calls me back and I end up ordering COFFEE.) We get up at the crack of dawn on vacation too.

Can't wait to see more fun in the California Sun...Oh you're out there havin' fun.......I think it's contagious.

We'll see if we're up at the crack of dawn each morning when we go to Orlando. 2 trips to Orlando. Out of the 2 trips to Orlando so far, we've spent a total of 11 & 1/4 days at WDW, and we've yet to see a rope drop. The only time we've made it to any of the parks early was for the character breakfasts.

And for the record, we really didn't have that much beer. We had cocktails and other drinks as well.

Tram-Tastic!

Whew! We made it out of Jurassic Park without losing anyone in the process. Gotta give it to Tram Driver Ted, he did a great job! Of course with all the excitement it was lucky for us we came across this:




Actually that is just a building from the Old Mexico set. As we made our way through the town, Al Roker from the Today show came on the monitors to give us an update on the weather throughout the studio. Mr. Roker gave us a warning that there could be some flash flooding in the area. Hmm...It looks sunny and warm to me. Not a cloud in the sky. I wonder what heís talking about?

Hmm...That water is coming down pretty fast...



Um...Tram Driver Ted...Thatís a lot of water...Do you want to move out of itís path?



I think i know what Mr. Roker was trying to warn us about! Tram Driver Ted...MOVE!



Thank goodness there was a barrier wall, although now my feet are a little wet!

This was pretty cool though, to see how they can make their own weather at the studios. All that water is recycled back to use for the next flood.

As we continued on, we saw some great set buildings that were used in some of the old western movies. These sets are actually facades.



In cases where they use only the porch or outside of a house or building, they donít build the entire thing, because it would be too costly, so they build facades. They do this also with city scenes like in Transformers, where the New York city street is blown up. It would be way too costly to build entire buildings to be blown up, when they can easily use the facades which have the same look, but are never used for more than just a street view.




In that picture. The buildings off to the left hand side are actually made of styrofoam. Just thought that was an interesting tidbit.

As we made our way into 6 points Texas, we got to see the old western sets that were built back in the silent film days.



And right across the way, was an italian village.



Itís amazing how they separate the different sets and make them seem so real, even though, from one moment to the next you are in completely different worlds. I donít know anywhere else you can go from an old western, to an italian villa in just a few moments. And then be completely transported into a train station...

Wait...This place doesnít look very safe...Oh goodness! EARTHQUAKE!

There we are minding our own business when the floor begins to shake. (Why is it that as I wrote that line, the first thing to pop into my head was the song from The Wizard of Oz?) Next thing you know, sparks are flying and the roof caves in. Out of nowhere a semi comes barreling through the broken ceiling. Just as we thought it couldnít get any worse, flames erupt from the semi carrying a tanker of gas. Thatís when we hear it. The approaching train. Itís going to fast. It wonít stop in time! It crashes and breaks in half, one half almost hitting our tram!

As Tour Guide Sandy tells Tram Driver Ted to get a move on, a water main breaks on the other side and water starts rushing in from everywhere! Tram Driver Ted puts the pedal to the medal and out we go! Safe and sound on the other side!

Donít believe me? Click here to see for yourself (Sorry for any noise interference. Darn speakers!)


Ok Ok...So it was a sound stage and not an actual earthquake. This set was actually used for a scene in the TV show Bones...The production company for the TV show rented the sound stage just for this specific effect. It was pretty cool to watch it on the monitors and see how it transpired on film, but it was even better to watch it in person. T-Man may have something less enthusiastic to say about it since he was the one that got wet. You can actually hear him freak out a little when the water hits him in the video. He did laugh a little.

As we moved on, we made our way to a serene island off the coast...I think itís a pretty popular place from what they tell us. Maybe you recognize it...




We were a little disappointed that the beach was closed at the moment, but thought it would be fun to look around anyway.



As we were getting closer to the waters edge, we saw a fisherman in the water. Tour Guide Sandy was trying to yell at him to get out, as the beach was closed and we would hate for him to get a ticket for being somewhere he shouldnít be when...

JAWS (Again, sorry for the noise pollution. Although if you listen closely at the end you can hear T-Man laugh a little, see, nothing scares him. not even a shark!).

Poor fisherman...If only he would have heeded the warning on the sign.

According to Tour Guide Sally, the universal shark was better than the shark used for the film, because the universal one worked! Seems they had all kinds of problems with the mechanical shark in the film, and was constantly holding up production because of the issues.


Does anyone remember Ms. Mona's Chicken Ranch?




We then got to take a little tour of Wisteria Lane for all you Desperate Housewives Fans out there.

This is where Gabrielle Solis lived:


Bree Van de Campís house...


Lynette Scavoís place...


And Susan Delfinoís house...


Along with a shot of Mikeís hat. Hey I never said I was a professional.

Since Desperate Housewives has gone off the air, this street is no longer known as Wisteria Lane, it is now known as Mockingbird Lane:



The house in that picture will be for the new TV show, sort of a modern version of The Munsters.

Just up the road was a set most people will recognize from a popular Dr. Seuss book/movie:



Itís WhoVille, from the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Those houses were made completely of styrofoam and chicken wire. Very creative if you ask me.

Just on the opposite side of WhoVille, we came across this motel:



And came across this as we past by:





Now Iím not the brightest bulb in the bunch, but Iím pretty sure he saw us. I mean we are in this massive, 4 car tram, with no windows, waving for all to see. But...maybe we were able to sneak by him.

or...maybe not...



Step on it Tram Driver Ted!

You know, I think this tour may be hazardous to our health. Getting attacked by Dinosaurs, involved in an earthquake, almost eaten by Jaws and now being chased by Norman Bates...geez! What else could happen?

Maybe I shouldnít have said that...

As we escaped the clutches of Norman Bates, we came across this horrendous scene.






According to Tour Guide Sally, This plane is from a scene in War of the Worlds. And this is not a styrofoam prop made to look like an airplane, this is an actual plane that they bought, and ripped apart for the scene.

Just beyond the scene of the crash, was a green screen set behind a body of water. They use this for any scenes that use bodies of water, like a boating scene or something along those line. This way they donít have to go out on location to some major lake or ocean, they can do it all here with green screen technology.



They have used this for films like The Truman Show, and just recently for the movie Battleship. I believe they also used this for the Disney movie, Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides.

Yes Ponzi, I know that the Disney movie is not a Universal movie. In order to use it Disney would have rented the space to film the scenes needed. Which they can do, Universal is nice like that. Give me enough money and I would be too.

We traveled past a wooded forest like area, that they use for scenes that well...take place in the woods...I think she mentioned that scenes in CSI have been shot there.

As we continued to drive, Tour Guide Sally mentioned that there was a cave up a head that was the Tomb of Impotep. This is said to be cursed by many among the Universal Studios lot, and so no one goes in there. Scary things are said to happen, and so we were going to just drive around it.

Unfortunately no one told Tram Driver Ted about this and he drove right into the cave.



Tour Guide Sally was a little nervous. You could hear it in her voice. But she stayed calm and tried not to panic. According to her, the legend was that there was a curse on the tomb and anyone who entered would be cursed as well. I was fine until she mentioned the flesh eating scarab beetles...

The tram came to a stop and all of a sudden the room around us started to spin...or was it us spinning and the room was still? You heard the mummy begin to talk in his native tongue and it didnít sound like he was saying ďHey Whatís up? Wanna beer?Ē

The curse was clarified when up on the monitors comes Whoopi Goldberg who begins to talk to us and then all of a sudden is covered from head to toe in those beetles.

Again...STEP ON IT TRAM DRIVER TED! If iím cursed Iím suing him...he's the driver!

This marked the end of our journey through the backlot tour. Jimmy Fallon came on the monitors again to say goodbye with a song he wrote called: Tram-Tastic!

ďWe had a great time together, and now the ride is done.
We saw some crazy cool stuff and had a lot of fun.
This tram has made itís final stop
But donít be sad and blue
Because thereís still one thing, Iíd like to say to you
Have a tram-tastic day
Have a tram tastic night
Watch your step as you exit the tram
And everything will be alrightĒ


Ok guys, I should be able to wrap up the rest of Universal soon, so T-Man can begin talking about DCA. I hope you enjoyed the tram journey. I hope I didnít bore you to tears. And if I did...Oh well...Obviously youíre still reading this so I must have done something right! You are still reading right? Hello? Anybody?

Sorry...I'll probably put a wrench in a lot of myths and legends with this tour. I really did enjoy the dancing cars. Poor tram drivers have to listen to that song over and over again...I'm sure they get sick of it.

I would love to go to DL with friends the next time around. It was great to do it by ourselves, but its so much fun to share!

Our vacation style sounds the same, just with less beer. (DH can't drink and every time I think about it, the siren song of my drug of choice calls me back and I end up ordering COFFEE.) We get up at the crack of dawn on vacation too.

Normally I am not a morning person. I can stay up all night, but the mornings take a while for me to get going, but I have found that on vacation, its hard to sleep late, you're so excited for the day to begin. It's the old commercial "I'm too excited to sleep!" I know I complain about it here on the TR, but normally it's not a big deal.

Can't wait to see more fun in the California Sun...Oh you're out there havin' fun.......I think it's contagious.
Others have beaten me to the punch, but I started singing that as soon as I read those lyrics.

Why, oh why does Tram Driver Ted still have a job? He should be thoroughly cursed by now.

Haha...maybe he has an "in" with the mummy. Tram Driver Ted brings him people to curse on a regular basis and he in turn gets the antidote for the curse.

They should have an animatronic of the lawyer sitting on the toilet getting eaten by the Rex. I'll bet that actor is still living that scene down, like the guy who became known as the "Propeller Guy" who hit the propeller when he jumped off the boat in Titanic.

Thank goodness there was a barrier wall, although now my feet are a little wet!

Wow, that sounds just like Catastrophe Canyon at Disn'ey Studios.

Wait...This place doesnít look very safe...Oh goodness! EARTHQUAKE!

How similar is this to Disaster, what used to be Earthquake at Orlando?
As we moved on, we made our way to a serene island off the coast...I think itís a pretty popular place from what they tell us. Maybe you recognize it...



Yeah, I do, but tram man Ted is one heck of a driver cuz this is off the OTHER coast!
I think.

We were a little disappointed that the beach was closed at the moment, but thought it would be fun to look around anyway.

Code Brown?



Now Iím not the brightest bulb in the bunch, but Iím pretty sure he saw us. I mean we are in this massive, 4 car tram, with no windows, waving for all to see. But...maybe we were able to sneak by him.

or...maybe not...

I have to say that an Anthony Perkins look a like just doesn't put much of a chill in me. Now, if it was Donald Trump heading to the tram,,,,,

You know, I think this tour may be hazardous to our health. Getting attacked by Dinosaurs, involved in an earthquake, almost eaten by Jaws and now being chased by Norman Bates...geez! What else could happen?

According to Tour Guide Sally, This plane is from a scene in War of the Worlds. And this is not a styrofoam prop made to look like an airplane, this is an actual plane that they bought, and ripped apart for the scene.

Funny, I don't remember a downed airplane in the movie, now I have to watch it again and look for it.
Oh great, that means another two and a half hours of Dakota screaming in my ear again.




They have used this for films like The Truman Show, and just recently for the movie Battleship. I believe they also used this for the Disney movie, Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides.

that last title sounds really familiar. And I still haven't decided yet if I liked The Truman Show or not.

Yes Ponzi, I know that the Disney movie is not a Universal movie. In order to use it Disney would have rented the space to film the scenes needed. Which they can do, Universal is nice like that. Give me enough money and I would be too.

Yeah Ponzi, she's not dumb, you know. Geesh!

We traveled past a wooded forest like area, that they use for scenes that well...take place in the woods...I think she mentioned that scenes in CSI have been shot there.

Right, CSI ; Miami shoots lots of scenes in wooded forest areas.
Ponzi,, I'm rethinking that.


As we continued to drive, Tour Guide Sally mentioned that there was a cave up a head that was the Tomb of Impotep. This is said to be cursed by many among the Universal Studios lot, and so no one goes in there.

No wonder, when your name is Imhotep and it looks more like Impotent, I'd feel cursed too!

That Norman Bates would have scared me more than anything. That movie scared the out of me when I was a kid.
We recognized the flash flood on an episode of Monk.
I miss that show, as well as all of my friends from Wisteria Lane. Thanks for the update.
