    News Walt Disney World's iconic Twilight Zone Tower of Terror billboard to be permanently removed

    I’ve read all these responses. I saw ToT as an accent that drew attention to the park for families, especially kids, not as an advertisement or attraction. I can recall my kids seeing it and wondering about the ride, scared to try it but curious too. They loved seeing the structure on the way to...

    News EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2022

    Trying to understand where the popcorn goes inside of Figment? Does the head come off? Do you remove his spine and enter there?

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Agreed. We flew down and rented a car as we split our Disney stay (perk was fast passes, dining plan) with off site stay. We loved eating out at more affordable dining in the Orlando area. Parking was free then at resort and parks. Now... what is it? $25 a day at resort AND still have to pay at...

    News Frontierland Shootin' Arcade at Magic Kingdom switches to free play

    We’ve done Disney many times but never did the shootin arcade. Not sure why. But it was never busy. Very outdated for sure, seeing as arcade games now are using more realistic and modern gunfare. I never thought it fit with the Disney model, similar to the few carny games at AK Dinoland. Just...

    News Disney KiteTails coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom October 1

    It’s at least something to do while waiting with young kids who can’t go on EE. It’ll be like the monkeys in front of KRR. They are there but I don’t need to stop and stare at them foe 40 min. We often bring a towel to the parks with us, or a change of clothes for KRR, so those can be used...

    News Origins now closed at Disney Springs

    Good location for Disney and Florida health to put in a vaccination clinic and offer a $20 Disney Springs dining credit or a 15% parks merchandise credit for getting vaxed. Step up and get vaxed.

    More buffets and restaurants returning to Walt Disney World including Crystal Palace and Biergarten

    Do the CM chefs serve and pass the plates along the inside of the buffet as you pick your food choices , or are people still touching the spoons and breathing over the food as they load a plate?

    News 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival

    I’ve always wondered why Disney didn’t open the showcase for a dining experience in the evening. Opportunity to bring in a paying adult crowd for dining using the Boardwalk entrance (small charge for entrance). They could’ve figured out a way to block off entrance to the ride section and use...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

    I imagine this ride to be like Frozen Ever After. No changes really to the ride itself, just what you see and hear.

    News Changes coming to the upper level of the Magic Kingdom Ferry Boats at Walt Disney World

    What was the incident (hard dock?). Did someone get injured? Never saw that article.

    News Gangway being prepped near to the Contemporary - second level access coming to the ferry boat?

    I guess this will speed up the ferry service by a couple of minutes. But doesn’t help the bottleneck that will be created when everyone tries to get into the park at rope drop.😃 Doesn’t seem like money well spent to me. Saves a few minutes.

    News Scaffolding up at Walt Disney World's Splash Mountain

    Time to cut the grass maybe??? it’s a 14 minute ride that is good for about 10 seconds total. I won’t miss the smell of damp and dingy, like a mouldy basement. Looking forward to a refurb with Princess and the Frog. Same ride in the end I’m sure.

    Minnie's Halloween Dine returns to Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    The pricing is insane, but when people stay on site with no car, they are kind of screwed since they can’t really go to local restaurants. One year (2010 maybe) we had the dining plan for free (late August) when we stayed on site. Our total receipts for eating were $1400 for 2 adults and 2 under...

    Minnie's Halloween Dine returns to Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Wow. Is there a new category of pricing: $$$$ ? So a ten yr old who wants chicken fingers and fries is $55 now and gets a glimpse of Minnie from afar. Perhaps time to introduce a flex menu for families. To eat there with my wife, teenage boys and daughter is $256 plus tip and tax. Bahama Breeze...
