^Thanks coasterbill for writing that up. It helps a lot for someone who hasn't been since the ride has been open and is planning a once in a 5 year or so trip. We have to get this right, there is no do over.

Glad to hear it and you're welcome.

Seriously, unless you're late you're getting a boarding group so try not to stress too much. If you can't get the red button you even have time to totally close the app and reopen it after other people start cheering and still get one easily. I'd actually suggest that over needlessly-panicked constant refreshing but your mileage may vary and everyone will have a different opinion on what works best. :lol:

^ The only reason I'd say to keep refreshing is what happened on 1/24 when the boarding passes went online a minute early. But the tell for me was when people started cheering so I still had plenty of time to react and get one.

The new sign looks great but the one 10 second video clip I saw man that thing was seizure inducing haha, I'm sure the sign has different speeds and stuff but the one clip was pretty dizzying to look at haha.

^ I just viewed a half minute video of the new marquee, lit up at night. And I really love the way it really reflects what neon used to be really good at, when it came to making and designing signs for actual businesses (YAY Carsland in DCA!). Vancouver used to have an amazing amount of 'moving signs' in neon, all over the downtown area, before either they broke down (and restoring was mucho $$$) and/or the business went out of business.

That said, I can't wait to see it in the distance as I "enter the Studios one evening".
Just like a Kingdom Castle at the end of a Main Street...

Without a GIANT CAP in the way of seeing it. :Pr Could you imagine what the heck they'd have to (not) design if that Sorcerer's Cap was never removed? Giant Sorcerer's Cap fanbois take note, please?
