    They use recorded organ music ... but not that much of it.

    FWIW, I'm one of the weirdos who actually enjoys getting stuck and then evacuated from rides. The most extreme one for me was when I first started my current job and we got evacuated off of the Rip Ride Rockit Roller Coaster at Universal ... the one with the viral video from when Fallon took...

    Nah ... you're fine. There's probably too many people there already anyway. So long as some of them keep paying me, then I'm good :0) And for the record ... I agree about other options. Go and see the world folks.

    On the subject of Orlando theme park travel, I'd be remiss if I didn't put in a plug for Universal. The two main theme parks are REALLY different with the addition of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter lands, and their Volcano Bay water theme park is really, really cool. MUCH better than any of...

    FWIW, 2 out of the 3 Disney All Star Resorts (Movies and Music) have had recent room renovations to bring them up to par with the rooms at Pop Century ... in terms of amenities at least. They're still tiny, but now you get decent queen beds and one retracts up into a wall pocket so you can flex...

    Animal Kingdom Lodge is truly unique and the building itself is spectacular. The savannah rooms that look out over the animal enclosures are really special ... having your morning coffee while the giraffes get their morning feed is one of the most unique hotel experiences in North America. Plus...

    I wouldn't worry about that so much. Disney is actively trying to hack away at the number of bookings they have for the rest of the year as it is, so shutting down a couple of resorts for the NBA and MLS guys won't even leave a mark. They will NOT talk about a number, but best guess is they want...

    Don't think so ... but there's some heavy stuff in there that you'd prolly like. It's a great venue and that tends to result is stellar shows.

    Word out of Disney circles is that the NBA and Disney have finalized an agreement to host the playoffs at Walt Disney World. They have agreed on resorts, conference facilities and the arena and practices spaces to be used and are seeking final approval from owners and the PA. Sounds like their...

    Sure ... which is why getting away from the computer and the couch and getting out into the actual community matters. Not preaching at you here ... just commenting in general. 90% of the stupid things I've heard said over the last few days came from people who simply refuse to believe there's a...

    Yeah, I'm not comfortable enough to say for sure who all was responsible for property damage in Downtown Raleigh. I do know there was some anarchist and neo-nazi tagging left behind (because I cleaned some up), and a bunch of miscreants on skateboards that were clearly not from our African...

    Salisbury and Thomasville had demonstrations that leaned towards riots as well. Fayetteville as well. Major, minor ... who cares?

    Everybody doing OK? I spent most of yesterday helping clean up at my cousin's business downtown only to see it get trashed again last night. And look, I 100% "get" why ... but there are no employees to help out since they're all laid off so they can collect unemployment while the business is...
