At the end of a busy week with the girls, we used the opportunity to jet off to Disneyland for some afternoon treats.
Went over to Pirates of the Caribbean (long line) and saw the new Blackbeard effect - not bad, but he just says the same things that Davey Jones did yesterday.
Had some time to kill while waiting for our 5:15 fastpass to Big Thunder Mountain Rail Road, so we went over to Star Trader's to see if I could find a shirt I wanted (didn't get it and now it's gone).
WELL, lo and behold -- Star Tours is OPEN. Not just "do you have a special ticket" open but "sure, soft opening -- get in line" open.
The line was long for what we were used to, but not bad. They re-worked the que line room that used to have a customs room feel, and now it's just a room with pretty pictures.
The interior que was spiffied up a lot. They have one BIG video screen (much easier to change, if need be).
They got rid of the old and busted star tours vehicle, and got them a brand spankin' new one!
Lots of neat additions to the line... like more robots and a real interesting camera display that works in the IR range.
Finally, you get to the top, and you get... 3D glasses.
Yea, 3D is "the thing" right now, but leads to silly things just to justify the 3D-ness of it.
Story first, I say.
And did I mention the story? Well, I will let you figure that out yourself...
