So for those of you not following me on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+, you may not know I’ve been in Orlando for the past couple of days at the time of this recording. Actually, the day that this memory releases, if all goes as planned I should be in the Magic Kingdom. So this is a real good time for me. Don’t forget though, if you want to follow me, I do still plan on tweeting a bit while I’m in the parks maybe at some point this next week too, so keep checking it out.

Today however is going to be a little departure from the norm. I’m still doing a memory, however it’s a recent one. Like 5 days ago. Right now as I’m recording in my hotel room, it’s Monday night. I’m doing this a little quick and dirty, but I wanted to make sure you had something cool to hear for Memory 070, so that’s why I thought I’d do my first ride on the new Star Tours.
So let’s set the stage and give you a bit of a trip report from my half day. I land in Orland around 1PM, take a cab to my hotel, but now I have to wait for my pre-arranged shuttle to the Magic Kingdom. You see, my shuttle only offers specific return times, and if I want to stay past the exact hour the park closes, to say see Fantasmic, I’ll need to get a shuttle from the latest park, which happens to be the Magic Kingdom. So I take the shuttle to the Magic Kingdom, then catch Disney Transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Then I’m into the park.
It’s a busy warm June day and I’m following my custom Touring Plan, hoping I’ll be able to hit all the attractions. I pick up a FastPass for Tower of Terror and then head to Star Tours. The predicted wait time is almost dead on. We’ll join up with the memory as I’m in line. I won’t make you just wait with me outside since there’s really not much to hear, so we’ll join up as things begin to get a little more interesting.
Let me caveat this by saying, this is my first attraction with the new recorder, so I haven’t found the sweet spot for the levels yet. So sadly, the audio distorts a little bit like 3 or four times. I am adjusting it throughout the ride and I think I’ve found that good level now, so hopefully that’s behind us.
Now, this attraction was requested by both Brendan and Michelle, so here you go guys. Also, the audio is in Binaural, so headphones on.
