Never meant for my arena list the other day to be so negative. Overall, our experience this year was a big positive, so I thought I would do another list of some of the positives. 1. The arena, while has some faults, is set up better to view performances so much better. I love being that close to the mat and the kids. I love that we aren't watching from a side angle anymore, getting cricks in our necks all day, or struggling to see with floor seats. 2. Super convenient and easy to arena hop when they're all so close. Arena itself is much closer to the buses, so a much shorter walk, especially when it decides to poor rain out of nowhere! 3. The playback review emails with videos and pictures of deductions is wonderful! Gotta love technology. 4. The warm-up rooms were ran exceptionally well as compared to past years. 5. Checking in with Disney at the front desk as opposed to at Celebrity hall, ran so much smoother! As simple as walking up, telling them our name, getting handed arm bands and walking off. So much easier than any other time before. 6. Love the addition of the big screen streaming HP live out on the food truck field. Maybe it was there before and I never noticed? 7. Girls loved always performing to a packed house. While the crowd is probably no different than before, the smaller partitioned arenas make it feel like there are less empty seats, therefore a more packed feeling. It's not fun performing bright and early to a mostly empty HP or Visa center, so a "packed" smaller arena felt like more of a crowd for them. 8. It was a smart choice to have the shopping tent in a separate area outside of the arena, instead of trying to put it in the hallways. Now if only our resort cups will work on the arena drink machines next year!
