    We had our semi last minute trip down a few weeks back partly to ride the GMR. I was worried it wouldn't last until our trip right after Labor Day. One of those things you know is coming but it still sucks when it happens. I've tried to be as open minded as possible about it and shove nostalgia and my love for movies to the side. Doing that though I still will not or never understand this move. I get some old rides from MK being removed over time, as much as I disliked the decisions at the time, but this will just always boggle my mind.

    It needs updating and work, and is probably more expensive to run then they want. That being said, it was an opening day attraction that was relevant then and even with all the changes to the park could still be a perfect fit, both in placement in the theater, and the park but taking you briefly inside of some great films. Can't tell you how many times we had first timers near us that got freaked out not knowing Alien was coming, or immersed themselves in Oz, or just stared bright eyed like me at all the sets.

    I think what makes it worse is what's going in, for me at least. A Mickey ride is long overdue, and with what they are doing, sounds interesting. But the Mickey shorts version? I think the shorts are fairly well done for what they are, but don't think they warrant being the representative of a Mickey Ride.

    Fastpass Mission: Breakout as soon as it's available after your RSR Fastpass. Keep that up with other DCA FP rides throughout the day, and you should be able to accomplish everything easily. (Especially now that TSMM has FP; used to be my ropedrop ride.) Have a great day!

    Isn't Pixar Pier supposed to be a seasonal overlay only? Similar to Season of the Force at Tomorrowland. I sincerely hope that's the case because it would make the most sense.

    Holy cow! Everything was great! Got to ride racers 4 times due to the ride breaking down on two loops! I'll fill you all in more later. It's off to UCLA tommorow.

    My Snapchat is kevinb_24601 for those who wish to see pictures and my Instagram is kmbmw777. I'm gonna post on there more often.

    Also, I could barely hear the audio to the streaks of the folks in my car. However, visually and pre-show wise it was amazing. Sight lines for it suck across the park.

    However, I am excited to see how it fits into marvel land.

    "Whoa. We're in Disneyland. That's cool!

    Hey guys, I hate to be this guy but I didn't get enough response from my classmates (despite the extra credit points at the end) I was hoping so of you would be willing to take 5 to 10 mins to answer questions on a survey about mass transition automated kiosks.
