    News Disney Park Pass System announced for Walt Disney World theme park reservations

    Cool, now I have a countdown that started around 6 minutes 30 seconds. We'll see what happens then!

    MLS coming to WDW

    It's pretty sad when you're looking for daily updates on the construction of a third-party hotel tower. The parks can't open soon enough!

    MLS coming to WDW

    We have a Boardwalk DVC reservation for early August. Can anyone think of any concerns having a "locked down" resort next door? I'm not particularly concerned, but this is our first stay at BWV and want to make sure I'm not missing anything as there are still possibilities to move. Thanks!

    News Walt Disney World updates Disney Dining Plan with new options

    Agreed. IMO the DDP hasn’t been a “good deal” since they removed the gratuity many years ago. Even then you had to order the most expensive thing on the menu just to see savings. Now it’s just a way to prepay your meals or avoid the crazy character meal prices, even if you still might be overpaying.

    News Blizzard Beach closing for extended refurbishment this year with enhancements coming

    Looking at bio’s pics, there’s definitely not much indication of anything new yet. Looks like someone forgot to replenish the chemicals in the wave pool. Nice and green!

    Mickey Not So Scary 2019 Party Pass!

    Just goes to show you that the “limited” number of party tickets aren’t really ever limited. They’ve already pushed that number beyond what is comfortable IMO. Unless sales are really just so bad that they need the boost, I’d avoid the parties altogether. As others have already said, it’s become...

    News Direct bus service to water parks restored.

    Definitely good news. Maybe we can save the rental car or taxi next time we’re there. It took a good hour to get to the water parks without the direct bus, that’s simply not acceptable to us.

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Historical Construction/Impressions

    We're with you. We booked DVC for early August thinking we would definitely get to see everything after the initial crowds started to die down a little. We haven't purchased airfare yet, so I'm a little hesitant until we hear more about a RotR opening date. I would really hate to give up the...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    I hear you and don’t want to start an argument or go too far off topic, but DVC perks have changed over the years as I’m sure you know. I doubt they ever promised it as a “lifetime” benefit, otherwise it would be in your contract. Things have obviously changed a lot since then, and the list of...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Ha, not sure it’s ever been relevant, but it’s rumored to potentially be closed permanently and only used for private events. Apparently there might be an agreement with the Swolphin that has kept it open this long. I agree that the BW area should see a lot more traffic thanks to the gondolas...

    News Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage closing for refurbishment later this month

    I agree, but this is why this is precisely when they should have been changing this show over. Even if it took six months, having another new offering with a high capacity would really help DHS when SWGE hits. This was an obvious and fairly easy place to do it IMO.

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    I’m sure that’s the hope, and then they can jack up the price to even crazier levels. To each their own, but I’m already spending too much money at a Disney resort to drop another $200 for a reserved seat, some shade, and snacks.

    News Beaches & Cream closing Aug 5 for refurb and expansion

    Other resort arcades that were replaced failed to reappear, and like you said, there’s not really an obvious alternative. I don’t think it’s been confirmed, but it is a big space so maybe something will survive. I personally doubt it though. My ideal setup would preserve the existing restaurant...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    Pretty much, and likely smaller than my circle in the pic above. I assume families with young kids are one of the biggest targets of cabanas, so that will likely be a good spot for them. I’d never fork out the kind of money Disney gets for these, but for me this spot wouldn’t be preferable as...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    We also noticed this last week. I just assumed they were doing some utility or maintenance work. It’s an interesting location for cabanas as it’s right along the main path. Here’s the rough location:
