    Odd/funny DL Tokyo rule

    I've been to every Disney park in the world. DL Anaheim ("The original") is my favorite followed by DL Tokyo. I was there eleven years ago and happened to notice two odd rules: all tattoos must be covered and no member of organized crime groups allowed. Wow. That's a problem at DL Tokyo...

    Me too! Very surprised. Not a huge fan of ST because I often get motion sickness from it. But perhaps I’ll give it a shot tomorrow.

    Buzz scoring was *really* broken earlier this week

    Fellow Disers - I was at DL on Wednesday and the scoring on Buzz was really messed up. No scores came through for anyone and the scoreboard simply didn't display. Later in the day, it finally came up but it only showed scores 1-4 with the top score of only 109,000. I was told earlier in the day...

    Official Superthread: SWGE Opening May 31st

    I was at DL this morning. While I waited at the gate for the park to open, someone I'm acquainted with told me that he saw a guest swipe a whole map-holder full of the commemorative maps (when they were still available -- probably about 150 of them or so). He slipped them into a Disney bag and...

    Disneyland 24 hour events?

    Oddly enough, within the last two weeks I asked a CM at the gate about a 24-hour park opening. She told me that she wasn't aware of any and seriously doubted that DL would ever have one again, simply because they're so problematic. I wouldn't make plans in anticipation of it but it's up to you.

    Sparkling water/seltzer

    @lauritagoddess Good news, sparkling water fans! I’m sitting at Coke Corner now. Yes, they have sparkling water on tap *and* it’s free and unlimited!! Woo hoo!

    Sparkling water/seltzer

    I’m at the park now and have checked a number of places. So far, no luck. But the quest is ongoing ;-).

    Sparkling water/seltzer

    Oh, they sell it. But it's around $4-$5 a bottle. Call me a dreamer, but I liked it better when it was free and unlimited.

    Park report - crowds, heat, Toy Story, SWL + pics

    That’s probably right. I was a bit overwhelmed and didn’t recall everything. But I loved how CMs stayed absolutely in character and spoke as if they truly lived on Batuu. I more than halfway felt like I *was* on another planet.

    Park report - crowds, heat, Toy Story, SWL + pics

    Perfect. I presume you know that the Smuggler's Run plaza is the best place to view them in GE (or so CMs informed us). Unfortunately, the night we were there, fireworks were cancelled. It hardly mattered, though.

    Pixie dust opportunities

    Best. Reply. Ever. Couldn’t agree more. Someone once told me that she was raised to believe that in order to hold an opinion, she had to attack the opinion of anyone that disagreed. She learned later that it’s better and easier simply to agree to disagree. When you’re calm, respectful and take...

    Park report - crowds, heat, Toy Story, SWL + pics

    Curious: night or day? I thought I’d prefer it it much more during the day but it was spectacular at night. We only did Smuggler’s Run twice but probably could have easily done it six or seven times.

    Park report - crowds, heat, Toy Story, SWL + pics

    It was fantastic- thanks! Have you been yet? I look forward to going again. My friend who got us the reservations pointed out that it would be great to see it at night. I was skeptical because I’m more of a morning person and love to rope drop. But he was absolutely right: it was amazing at...

    Would DLH Hold Our Bags When Not Staying There?

    As others have said, I’d be more than surprised if they’d agree to take your bags. In effect, you’ll ask them to assume risk for someone that has paid them nothing. I suspect their insurance wouldn’t cover them if something went wrong: your bags are lost, stolen, damaged. There’s no upside for...

    Email notifications of new messages

    It seems that I've stopped getting email notifications when I get new messages. Seems to have started within the past day or so. I got two messages within the past two hours and never got an email notification, as I did in the past.

    Pop-up ads

    Yes, happened a lot to me yesterday. I found the closing my browser completely (all windows) and then reopened seemed to correct it. At least for now.

    Gotcha! Duly noted and fixed ;-).

    Sparkling water/seltzer

    Certainly I'll look but I think the chances are less than 5%. I asked at the Starbucks and they didn't have it. I suspect that if any of the restaurants do, it'll have to requested specifically. I also imagine that some CMs will say "Yes, we do" and others will say "Uhhhhh... Not that I know of."

    I loved that they had this "Droid Detector" (??) at the cantina entrance.

    More pics: A friend ordered this: The Carbon Freeze. It was cool because it bubbled the entire time. I'm not sure but I believe there was a bit of dry ice at the bottom. Note the thick frost towards the bottom of the glass.
