    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    ...is Dorset (a southern English county) because a) the Gulf Stream passes by the coast and b) you can grow a palm tree in your back garden

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    It has 341 "rooms" in Disney parlance, but 238 are two-bedroom configurations (either dedicated or lock-offs which can be split into studio and 1-bed bookings) and 12 are 3-bed configurations.

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    Earlier in the thread I argued that a review of all the pull-down beds at this resort needed to be urgently checked. This does not apply to the other pull-downs at other resorts. The Riviera failure occurred on the first time that the bed was used, thousands of other guests have slept on other...

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    Maybe you should have litigated -- it might have made it more cost-effective for them to pay for the safety improvements in all rooms. Heck, why make the place safe for everyone when you can just give the individuals who raise the problem a few extra fastpasses.

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    Probably not an option given that the resort was marketed to DVC members as sleeping 5 in studios, not 4 and a another person weighing less than x lbs.

    Guest Caught With Loaded Gun in Backpack

    You are all very trusting here in assuming that someone with a concealed firearm (without a legal permit) in their bag went through the no-bag line (ie. attempted to evade a security check) without having a sinister intent

    Please tell more. Where and when did a heavy cabinet fall on you as you slept?

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    The problem in this situation is that the resort guest called "disney front desk" from their hotel room and that call went to a central call center rather than the manager on duty at the resort, so any management response to the possibly bigger risk to guests would not be flagged up immediately...

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    It would be nice to know (for the peace of mind of other guests) that the resort management had taken urgent steps to check every other pull-down bed in all of the rooms to make sure they have been securely fixed. After all, the worker/s who installed this piece of furniture are unlikely to...

    Guest Caught With Loaded Gun in Backpack

    This incident is slightly worrying not only because the man "forgot" he had put the gun in his bag, but he also "forgot" he had a bag and was apprehended after attempting to enter via the no-bag entrance.

    News Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue replacing Liberty Inn

    I would love a food scientist to start up a Disney VLOG taking some of this fast food stuff and, on camera, analyzing it for things like calories, sugar content, etc. It would be a wild ride.

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    No, I wasn't in Atlanta, but in my previous professional life (in the UK) I managed the comms in at least 6 incidents where major freeway/motorway crashes or weather incidents closed the road and left thousands of motorists stranded for many hours at a time. We knew that a good comms operation...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    Forgive me if I'm wrong. but my understanding is that in such circumstances, emergency services are providing regular up-dates to local radio station for broadcast, sending their own social media updates, and generally doing everything they can to reassure people through pro-active messaging...

    Ketchup and Mustard Pumps Removed at Casey’s Corner

    Well, condiments cost so much, compared to the other elements of the dish - I mean ketchup and mustard savings will allow us to avoid reducing meat content. Right?
