So this event was OK. Food was mediocre-average. Knotts visually did look better than I've ever seen it, but its still a park that would be nice if it wasn't overcrowded with Rollercoasters.
Live entertainment was refreshing but I'm not super into that kind of thing even pre-pandemic.
I like Universal and all (well I used to), but the park food has always been terrible for me. I've only eaten at City Walk when I visit Universal and I have no regrets.
I remember in 2017 the highest reviewed restaraunt inside the park was a Panda Express by Transformers.
Talked to some very Disney enthusiast coworkers today. These coworkers take multiple week long trips there annually. Every single one told me they would not be attending this event and that it feels like a cash grab and how they'd rather wait for the park to reopen if they were going to spend...
These jobs have always had high turnover, but I sincerely believe that 95% of the people fired from back in March of last year aren't coming back. It's like starting over again.
This will be incredibly difficult, as TP2000 mentioned..
