Thank you so much!
Hey @kmbmw777! (Didn't want to clutter up the one sentence thread.) How was UCLA?
I'd actually hoped to make it down here to Disneyland yesterday, but first work and then flirting interfered. Gonna check out the new Fantasmic tonight!
It was really nice! Loved the engineering college and got to talk to one of the assistant deans. Wish we got to see the dorms, but oh well. And the libraries were beautiful!
We're heading to Caltech tommorow then USC, then UC San Diego and then Disneyland on Friday!
That's a full week, with a great carrot at the very end! Wow, Caltech! Lovely campus and great school (got the roughly equivalent Illinois Institute of Technology as my alma mater). Best of luck to a future Californian!
Just did Matterhorn! I love it when the two sides race.
Oh wow! Small world. I'm from Chicago and my great aunt teaches environmental engineering at IIT! My best friend is attending in the fall. I know the place decently well. My aunt is gonna take my on a tour of the facilities later this summer!
Oh wow indeed! IIT is a very interesting campus itself, particularly all the Mies architecture. Now that I'm back in LA, can't say I particularly miss the Chicago winters. Chicago's great, though!
I know I won't miss the winters haha. I definately love the city in Sumer though. We drive up there a couple of times a month and just walk around. It's all beautiful! Are you from the Chicago area?
I just went to Chicago for school. I'm originally from the LA area, a small town just outside of Pasadena, which I moved back to three years ago.
Had a place in Printer's Row with a view of the Chicago River. Good place to watch the flyovers for the Air & Water Show.
The city in Sumer? You mean Babylon?!
Sounds beautiful. And . My aunt and uncle have a place on a street off Michigan avenue so it's beautiful!
I would love to go to school in LA tho!
Fantasmic 2.0 starts in 5 minutes!
Though the D23 types saw it already, tonight is the official premiere, on Disneyland's 62nd birthday. A jazz band in a Tom Sawyer raft just led hundreds of us in singing the park "Happy Birthday!" Super neat to be a part of.
Have fun! Made it back to the hotel!
So how was it? Was Fantasmic improved? I'm dying to know
Oh, Fantasmic was exceptional!
It's basically a 21st century update on an incredibly strong original show. New types of effects, like the inevitable projection mapping, and a remarkable new Maleficent dragon which must've swallowed a flamethrower. New Disney properties feature, mostly from the Renaissance (new Friend Like Me musical number), but a little Pixar and also Pirates of the Caribbean. (No Frozen!) Using live action footage of Jack Sparrow is momentarily jarring, but the new pirate ship battle is more rousing than the former Peter Pan sequence. The inclusion of Aladdin and Jasmine on a flying carpet (awesome effect) really makes the romantic dance scene. The crowd's reaction was palpable! Really great to have this back.
Pardon a slightly delayed review. I had to do Splash during the fireworks, and it's hard to type with wet fingers.
Sounds awesome! Before World of Color, Fantasmic! has always been my personal favorite nighttime show, so it's super good to hear it's really good. I hope they make updated one in Orlando! Don't worry about that, plus that has to be a perfect time for Splash!
The Matterhorn is so much fun!!! The one on the left side that is.
I wonder what unannounced attractions will be tied to the Society of Explorers and Adventures at WDW seeing how there will be a larger presence.
I did one as well. Hope that helps.
@Voxel have you gotten the results back yet?
