Re: Help with castle pass

Unless you are a member, are escorted in by a member, or are on a performers guest list, you always need to make a reservation.

Re: Magic Castle Reservation

Unless you are escorted in by a member or on a performer's guest list, entrance requires a dinner reservation.

That is the weekend of the AMA awards show, so the Castle will be packed to capacity. Even members without dinner reservations might have a hard time getting in.

Re: reading vs video

The only really bad thing about video is that it's more difficult to learn from because the footage goes by so fast. Many DVD players have slow-motion capability. When I want to learn a move from a DVD, I watch it on my computer where I use an app I created to control DVD player using voice commands.
