Wendover: “my family wants to go to universal and Disney. How do I write this off as a business expense… 😅”

Great video dude. Love all your silliness and now you’re tackling some park magic. Epic.

I'm looking forward to when Sam inevitably uses this knowledge to create his own theme park, Half as Amusing.

I went to both wizarding worlds and black spire a little over a month ago. My impression is that the design of wiz world was rooted in love for the source material, galaxy’s edge was designed for the exclusive purpose of parting me from my wallet contents, and a strong disdain for its source material.

Honestly I think “Project Stardust” is what is really killing the appeal of Galaxy’s Edge over Hogwarts. Disney is currently renovating walkways and spaces to encourage guests to walk more and only stop to sit inside restaurants or gift shops. Star Wars land got the brunt of this. The whole area is wide open with no coverage, no places to pause or take in the sights. You just walk through, ride two simulations, and get spat out in the hideous Toy Story Land 3 hours later.

My now wife and I visited Hogsmeade / Diagon Alley near when it first opened. It blew us away. Unlike anything we'd ever experienced. The entrance to Diagon Alley was just perfect. Slightly occluded, a little bit of music to set the tone, and then BAM you're in a whole new world. The Hogwarts Express to take you between the two parks and having to pad admission to both was a clear money grab. But we paid it with a smile and would do so again.

I think being able to charge $55 for something that is no more complicated to make than a 12" disposable pencil by calling it a 'Wand' is something out of a marketing agencies wettest dream.

I came across this video and your channel and for a non theme park channel the depth and accuracy of this analysis blew me away earned a sub🙌

You should do a video on the logistics of turning a week long vacation into a work expense.

Wendover making theme park content is the kind of gift I was not expecting today

Having been to both Disney and Universal, Harry Potter World is the only only theme park I would go back too, partially because I'm a huge fan and as of today that's the closest you can get to experiencing the world. Even waiting in line was a wonderful experience and part of the ride itself. I for one hope more theme parks are built so well so that other people can have the same joy I had with whatever worlds defined their childhood.

Funny timing, I just got back from vacation yesterday and we visited this Islands of Adventure 2 days ago. That Harry Potter ride was actually pretty cool. And yes, my wallet is now very light. It's empty in fact. Or maybe I sold it for a water bottle at the park

FANTASTIC video!! The “experience economy” is gonna be a big deal in the coming years especially since people are desperate to get out of the house and have fun because of you know what lol. This shit is literally what I’m getting a degree in, it’s called Entertainment Design at ringling college and it’s mostly about themed entertainment (theme parks) and designing immersive retail, dining, hospitality, etc. “Immersive” and “themed” are buzzwords you’re gonna be hearing a lot of for a while when it comes to stuff like this lol.

I work at Universal Orlando and I was also part of the Opening Team for Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and I cannot begin to describe how great a video this is! I would love more of this kind of stuff, even with all the other topics that this channel covers! I fully appreciate what Universal has done for me and then some and I’m so much happier here and for that alone, it’s already better than Disney but then throw in what Galaxy’s Edge is vs say Diagon Alley or any of the world’s Hogsmeade’s at Universal’s sister parks, it’s no comparison to what you get out of an experience without feeling like you had to keep buying things to feel you were part of the full story and experience.

I went to both Universal and Disney Florida last December. The Harry Potter theme park was amazing, it was like you were really at Hogsmeade. The Hogwarts Express was on the next level as well. The same thing could also be said to Star Wars theme park. Rise of the Resistance was definitely the best ride. The line was excruciatingly long that it took us 2hrs of waiting. The ride was very worth it though. My inner Star Wars nerd got unleashed while on the ride.

I literally just got back from my first trip to Universal Studios. The Harry Potter area was my favorite, and I’d been wanting to go there for years! The rides were unlike anything I’ve seen, and that butterbeer was amazing. Definitely would go back.

Great video goin in depth about the intricacies of galaxies edge. It's such a detailed and captivating area and you didn't even get into Smugglers Run or the faction style ARG that you can play through the Disney play app. So much work went into this game that not many people know about where you can capture areas of the land for the resistance or the first order, collect virtual items by scanning QR codes hidden around, complete quests, or even mess with Chewy by hacking the X-wing he's trying to repair and making it blow out steam. Just don't get caught or he might try to rip your arms out.
