Where to Eat: Lunch at Disneyland's New River Belle Terrace - By Robert Niles: Disneyland's River Belle Terrace reopened yesterday as a table service restaurant with a new Southern-inspired menu. The River Belle long had been one of Disneyland's slide-tray quick-service eateries, best known for its breakfasts. (Which seems appropriate given that the River Belle started at the Aunt Jemima Pancake House.) With this change, breakfast service has moved over to the nearby Rancho del Zocalo. Disn...

But in practice, an empty queue is an operational disaster. Let's take a look at why, and from that, get a better understanding of why major theme parks are doing what they do with the wait areas for their rides and shows.

On the Road to the Wizarding World Hollywood: Ollivander's - By Robert Niles: Every witch and wizard needs a wand, and it seems that Universal has sold enough wands to equip nearly all the muggles visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, too. So when the Wizarding World opens at Universal Studios Hollywood, one should expect its version of Ollivander's to become one of its most popular storefronts, as well. All photos of the Orlando version of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogs...
