    I think it was a mistake to take away those mcdonalds fries stands in the parks.

    In my experience, as delicious as the fries were, it seemed there was always someone else hovering nearby who wanted them more....

    What kind of discounts will we expect starting Mid July?

    They've already extended the Sun & Fun room discount into the Summer. Making up lost money is a driving factor, the goal is to eliminate the optics of mostly empty resorts. I imagine those discounts, as well as dining plans, will accelerate as we approach and get into the Summer.

    Rumor Toy Story friends makeover

    I've been wondering why Pixar's Braintrust hasn't pushed TDO to fix this. Jake Gyllenhaal should be upset that his likeness was appropriated in this manner.

    Being Stuck on a Ride - Which ride scene would damage your mental well-being the most?

    That "hurry back" is brutal. I've also been stuck there. Any time I hear the song - looking at you Disney Reservations dial-in line - I suffer flashbacks when they play that part.

    Ever lost or found anything valuable?

    When I was younger, as my friends and I were deftly navigating through the crowds to escape MK at the end of the night, I felt a slight tug at my sleeve. Still moving at a brisk-ish pace, I turned to see, jogging along with his father, a little boy holding up a handful of cash. I was at the end...

    Splash Mountain...don't want to get soaked

    There is no real safe spot, and even if you end up dry from the drop, you may still get soaked towards the end of the ride as you wait to disembark. (Once I was stuck under a waterfall for longer than I’d have preferred for 9pm at night.) One thing that may play a role is the weight...

    What Defined the Decade at WDW?

    This is the answer. Has to be.

    Disney Magic is alive and well!

    I’m so very sorry for your loss, but it’s great to hear you honored her memory with what sounds like a powerful trip to WDW. If you have the time, you should reach out to Guest Services and let them know this story. Often, when positive feedback for a CM is received, they will pass it along to...

    Empty Attraction Experiences

    Back in the day, when EMH was first introduced, taking the time to ride and re-ride BTMRR with no line. Same with Space Ranger Spin (on a different trip, though). Those rides are fun as it is, but being able to experience them with zero wait time was truly special. The CMs letting us on the...

    Poll: best queue?

    I had no idea Peter Pan had an updated queue until I found myself in it late one night. Arguably one of the best surprises I had at WDW in recent memory. It was the first time I didn't entirely mind the wait for a ride.

    Am I going to hate Pop Century?

    Pop Century isn't terrible, but it's not as good as POFQ. I'd suggest only choosing Pop if any of the following apply to you: You'd like to save as much money as possible so you can instead put that money into experiences or meals. Aside from sleep, you don't plan on spending a lot of time at...

    When did the Polynesian get so expensive?

    That's silly. They didn't have phones back then, did they?

    Eisner

    That first sentence sums it up perfectly. Eisner truly changed the game, creating the WDCo as we know it - setting the stage for those major acquisitions (Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar). Of course, his name and experience was entirely built upon the traditions of second generation Hollywood...
