I’ve just been having one of my regular chats with a popular and much-loved liner, in which we talk about you all behind your backs and snigger — I can’t name her, so please don’t ask: all I can tell you is that she’s an OB Nurse from NH — and she said something so shocking that I had to share it with you all so that you can judge her as the terrible person she is.
She pointed out that the lines for the new Hagrid rollercoaster at WWOHP at UOR were said to be ten hours long. I said I wasn’t surprised because WWOHP is totally awesome, and people love Harry Potter, and the ride is said to be amazing.
But will she consider going there? No. And why not? Because it’s not in WDW. Will she go to SWGE: you betcha? Do they have ten hour lines? No. Apparently DLR SWGE isn’t even especially crowded.
What is this deliberate blinding of yourselves to things that aren’t on Disney property? WWOHP is every bit as good as anything at WDW. Indeed, I’m more looking forward to going back to Diagon Alley next month than I am anything at WDW.
If you didn’t know, you’d think WWOHP was created by Disney Imagineers. It’s totally awesome in every respect. (Except the food is ropey in the QS locations, but the snacks and drinks are great.)
Don’t you all cut your noses off to spite your faces and miss out on the opportunity to visit somewhere genuinely special and — yes — magical.
