So my partner and I are headin' down to SoCal to welcome our new niece into the world. Since we'll be in the LA area, and since my love of the parks has shined onto my partner, we're plannin' on hittin' up the parks for three days.
We haven't been for a little over a year and have been much missin' it. Sucks that we weren't able to catch small world one last time before they boarded it up, but we are plannin' on ridin' Midway Mania a few times. Wow, the last time that we were there was when the Nemo Subs were new.
Anywho, I'll post a trip report (poss durin' the trip) for ya'll to see. My partner is plannin' on goin' crazy w/ the digital camera, but my own Polaroid camera is busted. I think I'll pick up a disposable b&w & scan them when I get back to Oakland.
But I guess y're wonderin' what the title of this thread means. Go ahead and guess... nope it's not how long it's been since we've visited the park... nope it's not how long it is until we visit the par--oh wait, yeah it is: it's both!
So totally datin' this thread, but it's thirteen days until we are in the park for the first of three days. That day is the thirteenth. The last time that we went to the park was on July 13 (or maybe it was the 12 that we got there,) err well better said this way:
The 13th of July 2008 fell on a Friday, we had reservations for the Blue Bayou at 1 pm (thirteenth hour.) We have made reservations for BB again at 1 pm exactly 13 months after we had last dined there. I thought it was cool when I realized that, however next month the 13th doesn't fall on a Friday. Oh well.
Anywho, since we have already made reservations for BB I don't think that we can afford to also make reservations for the Napa Rose. But do ya'll know of any other reservations we should/could make at the parks? Or should I just go for broke & book us at NP? Also, does anyone have the hours for NP, are they open for lunch or just dinner?
Thanks in advance for any recommendations ya'll post.
Wishin' I was at the Comic Con,
Here's one other thing I could use yr advice on: my partner has never been to Universal Studies. I was kinda thinkin' that we could scoot over there for that Friday, but it's been so long since I've been myself. ET was still there, T2-3D hadn't opened yet, so I don't have the best of memories of that park. Is it still worth visitin'? Is The Simpsons ride worth it? Keep in mind that I scare easily on thrill rides and had barely ridden the Jurassic Park attraction a handful of times... so I don't even know if I'll get on the Mummy attraction. ... but if I do go to NP, I don't think I could afford USH - decisions, decisions.
