    We saw the DM float in the parade 2 weeks ago, but did not see any meet & greets throughout the day... Not sure about that one.

    It baffled me how difficult people apparently find it to follow the loading instructions for the ride. I could never be a ride attendant on this one... Ugh.

    I loved the ride. I recently went during my Thanksgiving break. That ride was super fun! :)

    Any updates on wait times for this ride - just wondering what it has been like over the holidays. This would give us an idea of what it will be like over busy spring break. Thanks!

    Wow...40 minutes for DM with Express? There must have been an issue with the attraction. Either that or the holiday travellers are still here.

    We are TOTAL NOOBIES when it comes to Universal's Mardi Gras, so this will be a one-shot, hit-or-miss trip for us, so I'm gonna be "cramming" for info!

    NO APRIL SHOWERS! Hoping for good weather!:umbrella:

    Any current updates on wait times? We are heading down in abt 30 days. Do we still have to head to DM upon opening? We want to ride DM but RRR is a top priority and last time we were there the lines for RRR got very long very fast.

    Thanks!

    We were there Thursday and did DM first thing....wait time was 20 minutes. RRR was down (as usual) but DH and kids did it later on and only waited 15 mins.

    We went on DM this morning. Got to the gates at 8:30 and ended up first in line as they opened up a new turnstile. Headed right to DM and got in the first showing. It was cute and fun but honestly, I wouldn't wait more than 20 minutes for this. After we went on this, we went over to RRR and rode twice with about a 20 min wait each time. When we left the park this afternoon, the line for DM was 100 minutes!

    Quite dissapointed with the minion ride, plus the lady working was very rude amd wamted to split me and my daughter (4) up and would not understand why that would be an issue. Really?

    We're returning to UO/IOA December 2013. We haven't been since DM opened. Just curious...why would the attendant try to separate you and your small child? What is the seating arrangement for this ride?

    That is very unlikely to happen. The cast members have never been anything less than outstanding for us. I'm not saying it didn't happen, but Whatever transpired in that case was not the standard procedure by any measure. Additionally, before the ride starts, the employees ask if anyone is not ready, or not comfortable....at that point, I would have surely voiced my concerns and/or discomfort with the situation.

    The seats are 4 per car, with a lap bar over all 4. There is also an open bench seat at the front of the room.

    What is the open bench seat for? Can anyone sit there if they don't like the motion?
