I have my Gold Pass & my VIP card, plus the #1 (& #2) upgrade slots for next year!
Man, the girls at the front of the line were a bit testy about me & my sister getting to be in front of them, which made no sense (since all Gold Seats are pre-assigned) until I realized that the upgrade options for next year went in line order. So I guess I would have been a little upset, too, if I had been waiting (as she had) since 3 p.m. to get the first one, & I breezed in at 8:45 & took her place. And got Upgrades #1 & 2.
Can't wait for tomorrow, when the festivities start! But first, I'm going to try to get a good nights sleep, hit the hotel spa tomorrow morning for a workout, steamroom, sauna, & jacuzzi, and then it's go time!
