    I can't wait to try this. I am planning to try for a walk-up tonight!

    Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera open for reservations

    It shows the 16-20th open to search for me. Today is 180 days from 12/20. I’m local-ish & don’t have a reservation to test the “plus 10” part. I do know that for DVC reservations in the past I’ve had trouble with the site acknowledging the +10.

    Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera open for reservations

    I was able to snag a reservation for the 16th but it was limited availability - 5:30 or 9pm. I’m excited to try it - it looks beautiful!

    Capa Vs. California Grill

    I enjoy CG but Capa is incredible. If you can, time it so that you can have a cocktail at the rooftop bar at sunset. The food is out of this world good - we had several tapas and then steak for dinner. The service is unparalleled. We were initially sat next to a large and loud business...

    News New Signature Restaurant for Japan Pavilion - Takumi-Tei

    If it’s a multi-course tasting menu centering around wagyu beef (I’m hoping it’s the “real” Japanese beef) I could see them not taking the dining plan. Between the cost of the beef and courses that might not fit into appetizer, entree, dessert categories it may not make sense. Will be...

    For the foodies out there - what are the best restaurants in WDW?

    Capa at The Four Seasons is outstanding... a cocktail at the rooftop bar at sunset is perfection and a great way to start the evening. Allow time to explore the resort... it is stunning. As others have said, Victoria’s & Albert’s is amazing - especially the Chef’s Table, if you’re able to get...

    News Mizner's Lounge to be expanded at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort into a Beauty and the Beast inspired lounge

    It looks beautiful... and still an adult-oriented space. I’m relieved and optimistic!

    News 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

    I had no idea the F&W festival was so controversial. We go every year and enjoy it. We avoid weekends and that has apparently served us well as I’ve never encountered vomiting (that’s not to say it doesn’t exist - we just haven’t seen it). We’ve met and chatted with some really great people...

    Changes to World Showcase: DestiNations Discovered tour

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing. I’ve been interested in the tour but not excited about the lunch so this might be good news for me. I just looked and it appears they’ve updated the online description on the wdw site. 4.5 hour tour with snack. It says “exclusive Epcot festival experience.”...

    Smoking areas GONE starting may 1st Pinned so people can still see the announcement.

    The parks blog update indicates there will still be designated areas at Disney Springs and the resorts. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/03/moms-panel-update-know-before-you-go-tips-for-your-next-park-visit/

    Bluezoo question

    Yes, agree. I probably didn’t phrase my reply well. I have been able to order off the lounge menu in the dining room (along with regular entrees and wine) 2 or 3 times but each time they kinda made it seem like a big deal and they were really doing us a favor. You get access to both menus in...

    Smoking areas GONE starting may 1st Pinned so people can still see the announcement.

    Maybe. Unlike other prohibited items it sounds like there will be a designated area for use outside the gate. And not all guests will have a car (arrival by monorail, boat, skyliner etc.). Again, I have no skin in this game... just a “process person” genuinely curious how they’ll implement this.

    Smoking areas GONE starting may 1st Pinned so people can still see the announcement.

    Logistically that might be tough. Would smokers then have to rent a locker to store their cigarette, lighter, vape pen, etc.? Or purchase anew on each break? I’m not opposed to the new rule... but very curious how it will work as a practical matter.

    Smoking areas GONE starting may 1st Pinned so people can still see the announcement.

    The announcement indicated there will still be designated smoking areas in Disney Springs and at the resorts. As well as at entrances of the parks. I’m supportive of this but like many other posters, wonder about consistent enforcement.

    News Mizner's Lounge to be expanded at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort into a Beauty and the Beast inspired lounge

    You got quite the scoop! :) Any sense of how “heavy” the theming will be? Are they trying to make it more “family friendly”? Are the cast members excited about this or scratching their heads like many of us are? I’m excited about expansion... just really nervous about changes to one of my...
