This video should be included in any disciplinary methods towards lower lot employees. 

 

:lol:

 

It really is the walk of shame. A brutal six minute walk of shame.

 

I'm not even going to post it on Facebook or Twitter because I know the video will get tremendous backlash.

Anyone have any ideas on how to plus the Star Way beyond updating the audio? Would have to be something non distracting to not cause distractions while moving on the stairs.

I'd just remodel them and make them more modern. They scream 1990s haha. I'd also add a few more "prop stops" and photo opps on the different landings, similar to the Apollo 13 photo opp.

I go up and down the StarWay at least 5-6 times everytime I go to the park. At this point I'm sort of desensitized to the atrocious loop. Haha.

Always sucks to hear BTTF right as you're getting off at the top =P

 

Honestly I think it needs to be changed already. It's very outdated. Just play film score the whole time!

I just love that. Makes me laugh. I can imagine regular StarWay music being played during HHN, and then it gets real. Lol

New soundtrack: no Billy Bush. The safety spiel is mixed with random songs from Universal movies. Heard "Mamma Mia", "Boogie Fever", "Minions YMCA". Volume was really low so it was hard to hear.

This is one of my favorite moments of Universal Hollywood yet as its a change that fixes atleast 4 Insignificant but needed problems due to how dated it is.. May I ask, are you going to do another Recording like how the Grinch starway Recording was?

I won't be able to, but perhaps Jonathan, Chris Lord, Chris Glass, Adriana or Bruce could!

Either way, I doubt it will change.

What was weird is that I rode the Starway this morning and experienced the old soundtrack, only to walk back up an hour later to hear suddenly "Happy", and then all other tunes that were NOT the old soundtrack.

 

I like to think I just happened to witness the death of the Starway music. And I couldn't be happier.
