    and another, love it!


    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I wish DHS would create a QS area like Fast Food Blvd. They tried with Sunset but it pales in comparison to the offerings at Fast Food Blvd. and FFB is a bit more inviting with its theming.

    Re: This Year at Universal Announcement

    Steve Burke, President of NBC|Universal and former President of Disneyland Paris, spoke to investors on the 11th of the month, and gave an overview of the current state and future plans of the Universal Parks and Resorts business. During the conference call Burke confirmed that, for the foreseeable future, Orlando AND Hollywood would be receiving a new attraction EVERY year, and that NBC|Universal will continue to invest around $500 Million a YEAR into both resorts. During the Call, Steve also shared that more hotel rooms are on their way to Orlando. They currently have 2,400 rooms with another 1,800 coming online with Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Burke would like to see Universal with 10,000 – 15,000 total hotel rooms in the future.

    Burke also said that since Transformers opened the Orlando resort had seen a 20% increase in attendance.

    Burke’s plan is to turn Universal Orlando into the leading Orlando resort destination, and not a side trip. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for the Universal Orlando Resort.

    Interesting another Disney dude goes to Universal. Wonder if Burke was given that type of funding for DL Paris, what he could have accomplished there too.

    "The Hogwarts Express trains will seat roughly 200 passengers and the ride will last around 7 minutes."

    Here are the rest of the details Inside the Magic is reporting -

    "Guests will need park-to-park admission to enjoy the real journey aboard the iconic locomotive.

    The Hogwarts Express experience will combine storytelling, live special effects, lifelike animation and state-of-the-art technology to take riders between the two parks. Guests will see two completely different experiences depending on whether they’re traveling to Hogsmeade or London.

    The trip from Hogsmeade and Hogwarts to London and Diagon Alley will include Fred and George Weasley flying on broomsticks, Hagrid waving to the train, London streets, and Buckbeak the Hippogriff flying.

    The trip from London and Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade and Hogwarts will feature the British countryside, Dementors, Hedwig, and Hagrid on Sirius’ motorcycle."
