I was in town this week and planned on spending an afternoon and evening in the parks. But I wasn't going to get in until at least noon.. I didn't think I would have time to do much, and since MK was open till 1am.. I targeted to just goto MK and spend the day there... maybe trying to act like a AP and just soak in stuff.
Well, my plane was almost 2hrs late.. and it was 1pm by the time I got to my hotel. But along the way I had to face at least a half dozen star tours billboards.. so I bought into 'having to see the new star tours' and decided I'd head to DHS first.. ride ST a few times and then head to MK. Got a cab and headed to DHS.
Normally ST has a pretty short wait.. so I was hoping I could ride it a few times to see the different sequences. I got to the park, and ST only had a 20min posted wait. So I got in the queue.. which probably ended up being a bit longer.
Thoughts? Definitely a refresh the ride needed... but I really don't think it really is much more then a refresh. I personally don't think the TSA mocking queue will hold up to long term tastes. The 3D is ok, but not earth shattering. I found the show itself ok.. welcome update but still doesn't make me LOVE ST. After getting off the ride, the wait was posted at 40mins.. I wasn't willing to wait that long just to see more sequences. So I decide I'll walk around a bit and see if the line shrinks in a bit.. as it had gone into extended queue actually in front of the ewok village. I walked up through streets of america, just to be curious on what TSMM wait would be.. too much So I decide to check out the great movie ride. After TGMR, I headed back to ST to check the line again.. shorter but still not 20mins or less so I said no more. I headed down to Sunset Blvd to take in some sights, decided not to ride ToT.. but instead did some browsing in the shops on the way back towards the entrance. So successful trip to DHS.. rode ST and TGMR, shopped, and then headed towards the bus to hop a ride to the MK.
