    That's been the case with us the past number of trips. I love USF, but it's tough to leave the WDW compound once you're inside.

    But this upcoming trip is 9 days, so I figure that gives us just a little buffer time to get over to USF for a couple of the days, then back to WDW for dinner.

    everyone should go to Uni at least once, some of the rides are worth it, spiderman is awesome, The Mummy is really awesome, Rip Ride Rock it roller coaster is one of my favorite roller coasters, the Coasters at Universal are way better than at disney, much better.

    It's strange to hear that the Potter ride still has an over two hour wait time! When I went during the holidays in 2010, the wait was never more than 20 to 30 minutes. I rode it four times in one day... the quickest time was right before closing time... we just zipped through the queue in less than 10 minutes.

    Not being a Potter fan myself, I thought the detail they put in the queue was amazing. My wife (being the Potter fan of the house) LOVED it as much as the ride.

    My only complaint with the the ride was the the film part of the ride, (with Harry on the broom stick) the projection of it, was way too dim... not as bright like it is shown in the TV commercials. I also had the same problem with the Simpson ride. The dim projection really detracted from my enjoyment of the ride.

    My favorite attractions out of all parks altogether are:
    1) Revenge of the Mummy
    2) Spider-Man

    I'm bummed about Jaws being gone. I hate seeing classic USF stuff go, slowly but surely.

    I'm not really a coaster guy, especially as I get older and fatter.
    I like to have too many Margaritas and get choked up when George Lucas shows up at the end of The American Adventure.

    With Avengers opening in May I hope Disney finally features some Marvel heroes in the park this summer.

    I think Universal has the rights to the marvel characters in the parks for some time to come.

    I would love to ride the Maelstrom with Thor.

    Maybe he can use Mjolnir to give me a massage after Maelstrom's boats destroy my back.

    And not that they can anyway, but I actually really don't want Marvel characters in the park. They just don't seem like they'd fit at all. DHS would be the only place, and even that seems like a stretch.

    Universal has rights for Marvel characters in theme parks East of Mississippi. But it's fair game anywhere else. Rumors in Disneyland say that Imagineers wanted Tron to go into Tomorrowland there but since they considered it a "flop", now they want something Marvel instead. I prefer Tron in Tomorrowland and Marvel in California Adventure.


    And speaking of Tron, last night was the final night of ElecTRONica. I'm sad because it was something I really enjoyed and added to the nights in California Adventure. Coming in the summer is the MAD T PARTY, a rave-like atmosphere loosely based on Alice in Wonderland. Not thinking that would be as "cool".
