    Re: 5/30: Here's Johnny!

    So, are they going to have two treasure scenes on the ride now?

    One at the beginning and one at the end?

    The two treasure rooms pictured are from Disneyland's and Walt Disney World's separate attractions.

    You can check the art out on the TellNoTales.com message boards here.
    Ohhhh, me likey!!!!!

    I think what was meant is, are they going to have a second treasure room with Johnny Depp at the end of the attraction? Or are they completely re-doing the current treasure room with Johnny Depp?

    They're adding movie props etc. to the treasure room in the caves, but no Jack Sparrow. Jack Sparrow will be in his own treasure room at the end of the ride where the lift hill is.

    So... Jerry BuckHeimer is allowed to use the "Wicked Wench" name, but DL can't use the "Black Pearl" one?

    Something is wrong here...

I can't stand that everyone just thinks these things are okay, as subtle as they may be. Especially when it concernes plastic surgery, the culture surrounding which is mad enough as it is.
    I actually thought Al was being rather amusing until I got to "in need of a nose job". I mean, honestly.

    That whole LA/casting world is bad enough as it is, let alone that people like Al Lutz go around spreading and reinforcing it on the Internet.

    Let's leave the triviality to the casting directors, please.
    Since I worked two years in casting, I'm qualified to say this:
    I'm sorry honey, it's worse then you think.

    Not only are casting people the foulest, most superficial, horrifying jerks that are living, but they're reasons for casting people are almost never ever based on talent. Superficial reasons (like, having a pink bow in one's hair, for instance, that just 'looks right') are pretty much the only reason someone gets cast. Ability to act accounts for maybe 10% of the reason. 99% percent of the reason someone is cast is because they 'do something different' then everyone else during the audition. That's it.

    For instance: say the audition lines include the stage direction "he yells" along with lines. You see 100 people yell the lines. Then you see one person come in and whisper them. Because you've just seen 100 people do basically the same thing, the person who whispered them will get a callback, simply because it's DIFFERENT.

    It has NOTHING to do with 1) your talent 2) your talent 3) your talent

    and EVERYTHING to do with randomness, superficiality, and sheer luck.

    So never take anything personally, and know this, and you'll do fine as an actor.

    From your post that your frustration from the FP system stems from a lack of knowledge towards how to use it to your advantage. It is entirely possible to do every single E-ticket attraction in one day with the FP system, and you don't have to wait in a super long line. Not even half an hour. I've been able to do this on days like July 4 or December 31 without a hitch.

    However, if you're the type of person that just wants to go to the park and marathon Space Mountain all day long, then yes, the FP system is not your friend. Though if you get there when the park opens, you can ride SM 3-4 times during the day without super long waits -- Arrive at the park, get a SM fastpass then enter the standby line. When your initial pass is able to be used (probably around 10-11 if you got it when the park just opened), then get another fastpass. Use your first fastpass. Then later, use your other fastpass. If there are other fastpasses available at that time, get another one and ride in the evening. If you stay till closing, the standby line for SM isnt terrible either. So that's what, 5 rides on Space in a day?

    Really, you don't have to pick and choose anything as long as you know how to use the system.

    I have three kids, one of which is 6 mos old. I assume "using the system to my advantage" would encompass running to and fro gobbling up fast passes once the start time hits on the pass I'm holding. When you have a baby who needs a diaper change or bottle, you don't have time to run around snagging up fast passes so you can "ride all of the E tickets". I think fast pass only caters to the locals whom know how to "use the system to their advantage". I live in San Diego and we make annual trips and every other year or so, we'll get AP's but I still think all the imagineers need to do is create multiple lines/tracks for popular rides and fast pass will be rendered unneccessary.

    The only time I remember the E ticket rides with long lines was when they they were new or in the middle of Christmas and Summer. Any other time and the lines were manageable.

    Fast pass sucks....ummm....booty

    in my humble opinion
