Overnight refurbs at AK

Mon, 2018-04-02 12:44
A few months ago I rode Dinosaur and it was in terrible shape. Many AAs not working, sound was off, even the big dinosaur at the end didn’t come down. I’ve been riding this ride every couple weeks since and I was happy to see that things slowing were getting better. We rode it just last week and it was absolutely perfect. All effects were right on and the dinosaur chase now sounds like the dinosaur is chasing you.

I noticed the same thing at the It’s Tough to Be a Bug. The screen was blurry, Hopper didn’t come up at all and they were running a shorter version a few months ago. Now, it’s all like new again. All effects working.

Just goes to show you that Disney can refurb at night. They probably didn’t want to reduce park capacity during Spring Break, so they refurbished the ride at night. I wish they would do this with all the rides. It’s sad when a family only comes once every few years and rides are closed for refurbishment.

180 + 10

Did they do away with the +10 if you are staying onsite? I can book up to 9/29/18, but I can't do anything after that.

Does anyone know where to get the monorail headband? I saw it on a you tube video. It’s a headband with monorail on each side by your ears. Thanks for your help!

Yet Another Reason to Always Book with Magical Journeys

Sat, 2018-03-31 21:03
Shout out to Jenn at Magical Journeys and yet another reason to always book with them. :number1:

Had my trip already booked with Magical Journeys when I lucked out and got a PIN Code for my dates.

When Jenn contacted Disney to apply the code, the system wasn't showing the advertised discount. Undeterred by the glitch, Jenn persisted and worked with Guest Services who were able to manually apply the discount advertised for the PIN code.

As someone who typically works 60+ hours a week, it was invaluable to have an advocate handling these types of issues on my behalf.

Just another example on how booking with Magical Journeys can make your vacation planning stress-free and get the most bang for your buck.

River Roost lounge - dumb question

Sat, 2018-03-31 00:02
I'm pretty sure I know the answer but can't find any direct confirmation of it! I'm ASSUMING since this is a lounge that my 19 year old will not be able to accompany us? I know your legal drinking age is higher than ours (21 as opposed to 18) but here some pubs allow kids 16 and older as long as they aren't drinking....I don't know if that might be the case there as well.
