- There's a very
good chance that after what, 10 trips? We never go to
Disneyland again. With the forthcoming Star Wars Land
or whatever the fuck... the already awful lines and
crowding seem destined to be horrific for years.
Certainly, Jimmy no longer working there is a
deterrent because, well, free tickets... but the last
time the lines really, really, really kicked the kids'
asses. At least with Universal, it's 5 minutes from
our house and... well that's probably the only real
plus because for all intents and purposes? Disney is
better. The kids loved it equally though. Cue
- A few
- 1) I'm stunned
Vienna did all of the 3D rides and had a blast.
- 2) Those front of
the line passes were INSANE. Not sure we could ever go
again without that. The kids are so freaking spoiled
now they thought
SKIPPING THE LINE TOOK TOO LONG
because they still had to wait for all the videos and
stuff to play before the actual ride. THAT is how good
it is to have fromt-of-the-line passes.
- 3) They're still a
bit too young for some of the coasters and of course
nearly all of Harry Potter. However once that time
comes? Oh yeah. I can see them digging
- 4) Considered a
season pass, but man... there's just not enough shit
to do more than once a year. Weird, right? Like at
Disney it totally seems feasible but at Universal it
seems like they'd be bored to teards and we would've
just wasted $800-$1000. We'll wait.
- 5) And finally -
could it be our kids will just bored of amusement
parks in general? Cam is in this phase of hating to
walk anywhere, ever. It's annoying as fuck. I'm sure
it will pass, it's certainly not an energy thing, it's
just a whiny kid phase. Vienna had it for a bit. But
even once that's all over? I can see us just not
going to amusement parks... ever. The kids love
camping or swimming as much as anything... ever. As
family activities go - I'm feeling more drawn to
simpler things where we get to make shit up rather
than having it be so overwhelming. We get overwhelming
enough at home with all of our toys. Maybe that's what
happens when you have a VR rig and a home theater
AND A TIME MACHINE IN YOUR BACKYARD...
your vacations becomes simple shit like a nice hotel
room and a pool. <shrugs>
I'm cool with that.
