Duff, just remember. . .we come and go in spurts. . .we will have days where the conversation just takes off for days. . .and then go quiet for a couple. The weekends are usually quiet around here. Sometimes people pop in, but usually we are busy with other stuff and it just slows down around here. We have been kind of moderately active lately but our usual fun selves. . .

I think I can handle that! It's nice to have a small distraction from work now and then.

Well your favorite bartender is on the move again! DW and I are headed to Glacier National Park to work for the summer season! We're going to see Yellowstone on the way up too! Can you tell that I'm excited? lol I probably won't have a lot of access to the internet(not at any kind of speed anyways, haha) so I may not be on much. We leave in about 2 weeks. :D

Neither can I. And to think, demolision of the previous building in that spot wasn't even started at this time last year. I don't think Disney has any excuse anymore for taking so long on their construction projects since Universal has now shown that you can easily complete a major new attraction in the middle of a park in a very quick amount of time.....IF you are willing to throw the resources at it to do that.

You know.... Not on much, compared to your recent major posting spree! It might be nice getting some piece and quiet from our chatty bartender for a change.



Good luck dude and have fun! Glad things are working out for you guys.

Yea. It's crazy how quickly they built it. Granted, it's a clone from the one in Hollywood. But still. All I know, is I'm gonna be there day 1.

I'm heading down June 22 for a week (this was not supposed to be happening but I got a promotion and figured I'd celebrate) so I'm hoping its open while I'm there. I'm staying at PBH one night so I also hope it has express pass!

Honestly, I think it will be open by then. I'm expecting Memorial Day, or at the LATEST, mid June. Now, I don't think it's gonna be Express Pass, I mean; Forbidden Journey isn't and it took how long for Rip Ride Rockit to become one. But I'm sure if you get there early at rope drop, it shouldn't be too bad. I'm just so excited, I'm a HUGE Transformers fan.

I've done the Hollywood version of Transformers, and it was pretty darn impressive. I still prefer Spiderman from a total ride experience, but the Transformers ride system has a few tech upgrades that blew me away. I don't wear the WDW rose colored glasses ... while the entire WDW experience is still #1 in my book, The WDW ride technology upgrades are a joke compared to what Unversal has been doing in attraction investment for years. Carsland in DL is a step in the right direction, but that's on the other coast. Even seeing the plans for the Dwarves Mine Coaster has left me wondering if it's going to be an overhyped Barnstormer

I really hope not! I'm very much looking forward to its opening and would be so disappointed if that were the case.

Hopefully something really awesome ride wise goes in over at AK for Avatar too. (Not that I'm a fan of the idea but could be an opportunity for state of the art technology).

A girl can dream lol. Im just in awe at how big the que is. I'm guessing forbidden journey maybe just as long when you think about it

My friends just aren't really that interested in Disney (what??) so I gotta do what I gotta do
Welcome, feel free to jump into the conversation.

I'll have to find other ways to occupy my mind
Have a fantastic trip and happy birthday.

Also, I saw your DHS post on the other board earlier today and it really made my day!
Welcome.

You sound like you have great summer plans. There are plenty of places that have free wifi, so check in when you can.


Just wanted to wish everyone a fantastic weekend, we leave tomorrow for our Disney wedding.
