    News Digital Tip Boards come to Disney's Animal Kingdom

    Because people always needed them. Not every guest is staring at their phone all day (or wants to). Tip boards were always an easy way for guests to get information quickly about park status, even if they were just walking by and taking a quick glance. Taking them out was a short-sighted...

    Pools at other resorts

    Again, generally pool hopping is not permitted. But there have been many times when pools were closed at a certain resort, and pool privileges were extended at a neighboring resort to compensate. I don't believe this has been mentioned by Disney yet in regard to the Big Blue Pool. But as...

    News PHOTOS - Large mature Oak Trees being transplanted around property from the TTC

    Agree completely. I'm sure it cost a fortune to move trees that size. So I am impressed they decided to do this and hope they move them to somewhere where they can be appreciated. (Maybe back to the hub? 😁)

    Parking fee

    We drove in and out during our stays. Usually through the gated lane where we scanned our band, but occasionally with the guard. I guess we've been really lucky with this. I'm guessing it won't happen for our upcoming trip in April.

    News Disney’s DuckTales World Showcase Adventure Announced for Play Disney Parks Mobile App at Epcot

    Sounds like there's no set date for the Ducktales replacement? My kids love the new Ducktales and would love to play this at Epcot.

    Parking fee

    Just wanted to add, that in stays at 2 different resorts (not POFQ), we told the guard we were checking in, no one ever asked at the front desk, and we were not charged for parking for either stay. So it's really not consistent.

    News Improvements coming to the entrances of all four Walt Disney World theme parks

    Maybe they plan on painting it a different color? First thing I thought was, wow that's going to get dirty really quickly.

    News Halloween offerings coming to Typhoon Lagoon this year

    It does get pretty crowded in the summer, but in general I completely agree with you. It's so refreshing to just show up, have fun, do whatever you want, eat whenever you want and not have to deal with all the hyper-planning madness that is basically required to tour the regular theme parks...

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

    Thanks for the info. A bit unusual though, right? I can't think of any time in recent memory when Illuminations was outright cancelled at the last minute. Has this ever happened before?

    Disney names new parks leadership roles

    This made me laugh. First time I've heard that comparison but it works -- Chappy definitely has the same look!

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    I agree, MK desperately needs a new nighttime parade and for that I'm ok with a mere Festival of Fantasty refresh. But if a light parade doesn't get approved / announced anytime soon though, I fear they'll be running out of time to get it accomplished for the 50th.

    News Disney's Earport shop in Orlando International Airport now closed for redesign

    To my knowledge these 2 airport locations are owned and operated by WDW (and run by their merch team).

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2019

    Wow, haven't seen that video before. It was fun to see live music, ambitious dance moves, an army of performers, Goofy on a horse, and trees with actual shade in the Magic Kingdom! And back on topic, after taking a break from the Halloween party for quite a few years (we loved it a decade...

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    I agree, I would hope they wouldn't use this project as an excuse to get rid of the water pageant.
