Two nerdy points:

1. The Star Trek Experience was really fun, and I knew nothing about Star Trek going in! The greatest thing that will stick with me is where they took you to a waiting room, then told you they were going to beam you up, then ALL THE LIGHTS SHUT OFF, and when they turned back on YOU WERE IN AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ROOM. I was about 17* at the time but it was amazing.

2. Paul Reubens isn't a part of the new Star Tours ride anymore, but they have a broken-down version of his robot that you walk past while you are in line. He recites dialogue from the ride in a kind of broken, stuttering way. It's super depressing.

*(I originally had "15" here but I just did the math again, the right way this time, and I was 17. OH GOD)

EDIT 2: Bonus Disneyland nerd tip: "Fantasmic" is the water show Jesse was talking about.

The Wynn was also one of the only things I liked in Las Vegas.

The bathrooms in the designer mall were the nicest I've ever seen, but my favorite section was Parasol Up / Parasol Down

There is a fanatical attention to detail in Parasol Up.

Circles are everywhere, from patterns on the couches and the floor, to circular light fixtures AC vents, and speakers. I had this immediate sense that someone said "Go crazy, spare no expense, cut no corners." Same thing with the colors and fabrics, they were varied, but repeated. Loved it. Also great cocktails.

And of course the designer of the hotel is a middle aged gay man with impeccable taste:
