I was reading how other versions of Forbidden Journey temporarily had 3D, whereas Orlando never has.

When I first rode it, it was one thing that stood out as being an obvious omission. Whilst the screen parts are good, I’m curious why it’s not done in 3D when almost every other projected ride is.

Same for Fast & Furious.

The 3D didn’t stay long in Hollywood. I think the movement was not a great mix, which is why it works with Gringots, a move with a lot less movement

Great photos there! I’ve been planning on doing Florida next May so that I can stay in the Star Wars Hotel but it’s STILL not been announced. So there’s been a change of plan. I’m doing Disneyland Paris in February and a West Coast USA road trip in June-ish that’ll include Disneyland instead. Florida will just have to wait.

I’m hoping to hit two Star Wars birds with one stone next year and do Galaxy’s Edge in California along with Celebration in Anaheim. That’s the plan anyway...

Midway Mayhem released some brilliant aerial photos of the new stuff happening at Islands of Adventure. Particularly cool to see are the ones of new Harry Potter ride:

Yep, very cool. Give @bioreconstruct a follow on twitter too. He regularly posts aerial photos of the various projects in the parks.

My friends had a sneak peak at Galaxies Edge the other day, and are going absolutely apeshit about it.  Photos were banned, but they are saying the buildings and scenics In the area are perfect.

This was the Disneyworld version, but as far as I know, they are identical.

Woke this morning at half 12, not sure what woke me but glad I did as I had a notification that our connecting flight from Gatwick is cancelled! We were flying from Glasgow at 6:45 this morning via Gatwick, 1 hour on the phone to the airline later and now flying from Edinburgh via Philidelphia arriving 3 hours later than planned, taxi booked to take us from Glasgow Airport to Edinburgh so I'm preparing for what that'll sting me. Kids are still sleeping but that'll be me up now for the day... What a start to the holiday!

They are, except for the entrances from their respective mother parks.  3 weeks today Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge opens.  I'll be there in the early post reservation period in the summer which I'm not sure will be worse or better yet at this point.  There's something to be said for a guaranteed slot 😄

Best of luck dude.  There's nothing quite as shit as having a flight pulled from under you.

All good cheers chief, currently checked in and in departures at Edinburgh. 3 hours later arriving but no immigration to clear in Orlando so we haven't lost much time in the end.

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opened today and is getting rave reviews.

Dan from Midway Mayhem rode it this morning and put a video review on their Facebook page and gave it 11 out of 10, saying it was awesome.

We're back in August and just hope the queues have gone down from the 600 minutes they are at the minute!
