    Lego Land

    I-4 to 27. 27 to Cypress Gardens Blvd. Cypress Gardens Blvd will take you straight there. It's about an hour each way. Your 6 year old will love it. Yes. 6-8 hours is plenty. Depending on when you go - that's all you may get. Usually open from 10-5 or 10-6 on weekends. Be sure to walk...

    Fifth Gate Disney Memories

    It wouldn't be the original experience. That's what people want. They don't want a screen Toad ride. And even if they could do it. The "nostalgia" factor would only last so long.

    Fifth Gate Disney Memories

    They can never come back, unfortunately. In keeping with the "exercise". If say, they wanted to bring back a ride - they couldn't. The tech would be outdated and in many cases unobtainable. So then they'd have a decision. Bring back the ride with older tech, which is not quite the same...

    "The FastPass Question"

    I used to. I don't as much anymore. It's not because I'm trying to "Do Disney on the Cheap". It's because a lot of my meal revenue is going elsewhere. Even if I eat on Property its rare that I eat at a Disney run place. Shula's, Polite Pig, Bull and Bear, Homecoming, Raglan, Boathouse, Yak...

    "The FastPass Question"

    Conceptually, FP isn't a terrible idea. Practically, for me at least, I love and hate it equally. A few trips every year I plan - months in advance. However, many of my other trips are confirmed anywhere from a week to a few weeks out. In those cases, good luck getting the premium rides and...

    "The FastPass Question"

    Mine is a part of my AP. So I get the after 4 deal. I will say that my Uni schedule is different than my WDW schedule. With Uni, I lounge around in the morning and hit the park about 2pm vs. Disney, where I hit as close to rope drop as I can - then lounge around the resort at night. I think...

    "The FastPass Question"

    The most important thing to Disney is the data. And now that I think we'll start seeing a gradual shift from bands to devices, I don't think Disney is going to miss the opportunity to track us everywhere. So I don't think FP will ever be "axed". They may start charging for it though.

    News Crossroads Plaza Faces Demoliton

    I am going to miss a few of those places. Here's hoping that they find life either somewhere else on 535 or explore locations outside - maybe the area on Palm Pkwy (either existing or the new stuff north of Lake Road). Also, I'd think once some of the new hotels and the residentials are built...

    Question on navigating around Columbus Day

    It’s a large IT conference that takes place every year at the Swolphin. They also take some rooms at Yacht Club. They block off public areas for functions and the whole vibe is that of a conference. I stayed at Dolphin one time when it was going on. Wasn’t my cup of tea. That being said...
