    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    That was my last shot for this trip. I was a victim of the "party not in the park" bug on Monday. I'll have to wait until the next trip. Maybe our little one will meet the height requirements by then and we can all go together. Watching a ride through on YouTube filled me in on what I...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Just got off my first time through, boarding group 70. It was a great ride, but I definitely missed some things. No probe Droid laser, and I was loaded directly from the star destroyer shuttle bay (taken through a backstage area.). I've managed to avoid any spoilers this far so I guess I'll be...

    News Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin to eliminate 1136 employees

    You can't buy someone a drink on Zoom. You can't judge body language. You can't touch and feel the product that someone is trying to sell Don't get me wrong, Zoom, WebEx, etc. are great tools that will change the landscape, but I think conferences will eventually recover most of their previous...

    News Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin to eliminate 1136 employees

    While some of it is a ghost town, I'm staring at Luna Park Pool right now from my balcony, and it's busier than an average September night. Now of course that's because the parks are all closed, but it stays pretty busy from mid afternoon on. Epcot closing at 7 now (plus no hopping) has...

    Boardwalk Food Options?

    Boardwalk Bakery has pastries. The ice cream shop there, Ample Hills, permanently closed, but you can walk over to Beaches and Cream at Beach Club.

    A physician’s thoughts after spending 16 nights at Universal and Disney

    Taking one sentence out of a multi-paragraph post is disingenuous at best. Look I'll do it too: Using your logic, this would imply that nobody should go to Disney because it's getting too busy to be safe. But that isn't what @durangojim said either. He didn't express any advice; he posted...

    A physician’s thoughts after spending 16 nights at Universal and Disney

    Yes. In fact the OP seems to be avoiding providing any advice. Not telling anybody where to go or what to do. Certainly not saying what is or is not safe. Almost like a physician that wants to avoid that liability while still providing some observations to fellow Disney fans.

    A physician’s thoughts after spending 16 nights at Universal and Disney

    Honestly, it isn't that difficult to understand. I'm an engineer that builds roads and bridges for a living. I see the world through that lens all the time. My wife (who also happens to be a physician) doesn't notice any of the things that I do, but she does notice things relating to health...

    My Disney Experience Mobile Order adds Arrival Window, Apple Pay and Gift Cards

    What you call high maintenance, I call thrifty. ;) Not that I specifically used the extra bun trick myself, but I have ordered some 'off menu' items over the years. The app certainly seems to push you towards the larger more expensive options, and I try to keep an eye on my bucks and my belt...

    My Disney Experience Mobile Order adds Arrival Window, Apple Pay and Gift Cards

    I wonder if they'll be adding all the menu options to the mobile ordering system. Maybe it was just me, but when I used it on my last visit, you could really only order from their meals on the menu. For instance, you can't get an extra bun. Nor can you order cups of water, only soda or...

    News Pandora path repainting

    Thanks for the replies. I don't recall ever seeing a post on here about the repainting and couldn't find it in a quick search. Guess I need to up my game. :)

    News Pandora path repainting

    Apologies if this has already been posted, but I didn't see it after a quick search. In Pandora yesterday my wife pointed out they were repainting the main path between NRJ and FOP, with what appeared to be glow in the dark paint. I know the original iteration of this failed, but this is the...

    News Epcot Forever to debut as interim show before full Reflections of Earth replacement

    After watching the stream, I don't think it's aweful. I really enjoyed the Tapestry of Nations and Golden Dream segments. Everything else was thoroughly meh. I don't know that anything will every replace ROE in my heart. Too many good memories are associated with that show. I was hoping the...

    News Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine to possibly impact the theme parks this weekend

    Ditto. Arriving at MCO at 8:35am. I'm not worried about the parks, more about my flight.
