    I remember watching the original Star Trek when I first came to Canada. It, along with the Adam West Batman, were the only shows playing on TV after school back then.

    I remember 8-year-old me wondering why women in the West always wore so little clothes. :D:D:D

    By that time the Federation would have already something to prepare against the Borg.

    Drinking Star Wars beverages at Disney's Galaxy's Edge can cost between $32 to $75 a drink. I will probably never visit because chances are you'll be paying a lot of money on a separate entrance fee other than DIsneyland to just to basically walk around like a herd of cattle. I'm not willing to stand in line for at least three hours for a ride. I've stood in line for seven hours to get into a venue but that was an all day event. Three hours at least for a ride that will only last a few minutes...? My friend took his young kids to Disneyland and they aren't keen to going there again because the wait in line for a ride wasn't worth it to them.

    Luckily, being single and all, I won't be interested to go to any amusement park (amusement parks are places that you go there with someone else, solo is no fun), and because I am so often unflattering about the US in my fb and twitter accounts, I know I won't get a US visa anyway. So Disney got no chance to rip me off on that one.

    Money saved, on so many levels.

    I've heard that Universal Studio is supposed to be better. I've never been to neither one. If I do go, it would be Universal Studio instead of Disney.

    True but aren't those for alcoholic drinks and fancy cocktails that should reasonably cost more due to the extra effort and nature of the said drinks ? While certain other drinks throws in a souvenir or collectible free.
    Other than that I did say that all popular theme parks have more or less the same terrible service and waiting periods.

    Hershey Park is actually decent when it comes to food and drinks.

    Yes those are acholic drinks. There was a story in the past couple weeks where people are stealing the cups and selling them on ebay. Sounds like they're not souvenir cups. You can buy colored milk like in A New Hope for $9 in the park. I also heard you can pay $200 to make your own lightsaber but they're so cheaply made they breakdown before you leave the park.
