They are released every two months. Pirates of the Caribbean was released this month. If you want to secure future pins for well, not $50, you need to pretty much be at the park the day they are released. They sell out fast! Good luck!
The last time i saw the popcorn flavors was on an AP preview day the week of the grand opening...they had nacho and dill pickle. I was bummed cuz the cheese one was too spicy for me (im a wuss!) and pickle didnt sound good to me. So my guess is they are rotating the flavors, unless they just got rid of the pickle flavor. Dill pickle was also one of the named flavors when the menu was first releas More...
As someone has said, there is one very intense fight scene. Lots of body slamming, punching, paw swiping, roaring, and one very big rock. Think of it as the Simba vs.Scar battle...on steroids. Have you seen the Golden Compass? I would say the battle scene is comparable to the polar bear fight scene in that movie, although brave isnt as violent.
I asked one of the CMs operating the ride last week-what happens when it rains?- and he said "the water flies up in the air." he said they will only close it when the CMs on either side of the ride can no longer see each other.
I just purchased mine less than an hour ago. I was truly debating but it's probably gunna be my best chance to ride anything this summer without a 4+ hour wait (i hope). Then i can say i did it, and not be sad if i cant get near carsland the rest of the summer. I still plan to go opening day to see the madness and hopefully snag an opening day pin.
I followed the links in my "youre a loser" email, and went to the question and answet section....regarding early AP entries...."Does the Annual Passholder Early Entry allow access to the attractions in Cars Land? Annual Passholder Early Entry does not guarantee access to any of the Cars Land attractions and is subject to availability."
