    News Walt Disney World to resumes sales of Annual Passes September 8th

    I rarely post here, but this proved to be my last straw. I recognize that it’s our fault for not making the purchase earlier, but as DVC members going down in two weeks, we feel pretty slighted by this news out of nowhere. Three of our party have AP’s, three don’t and were going to order them...

    Wolfgang Puck Express at Disney Springs permanently closed?

    It was a tradition of our family to go for breakfast AT LEAST twice a trip and then tour the Springs in the morning when it was considerably less crowded. This genuinely has made me really sad. No more corn flake French Toast and fantastic breakfast pizza in a fast casual environment. Anyone...

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    I don't know if I'm simply looking back with rose-colored glasses, but the Hunchback show was fantastic. Selfishly, I had looked forward in a year or two to taking my nephew to VOTM because, like others have said, it was one of the few things in the park for very young kids. But it was feeling...

    Erwin Pearl at Disney Springs to close

    I would think that is a decently trafficked corner. But it is true that there was hardly ever anyone in that store whenever you would walk by.

    News WDW Resorts to add fees for parking

    Marie - thanks for your help! Definitely wouldn’t be an overnight stay.

    News WDW Resorts to add fees for parking

    Thanks. Appreciate the help. 217 pages that started over a year ago. A final post from over three months ago. Things very well could have changed. But your classy response is helpful.

    News WDW Resorts to add fees for parking

    I know I’m resurrecting an old thread here so my apolgies for that, but I’m wondering if anyone could tell me how this affects dining at a particular resort. We’re DVC and staying onsite with points so I know our parking is “free,” but when visiting a resort for a meal is there now a strict...

    PHOTOS - Temporary store to open during a major update to World of Disney at Disney Springs

    Upon seeing the pictures and watching a walk-through video, this was my immediate thought as well. With the open ceilings and lack of carpet, the cacophony present could be awful. That said, I don’t mind the look. It’s not as special, but it definitely looks more spacious than before and...

    New gastropub to replace Captain's Grille at Disney's Yacht Club

    Ugh. I thought the Captain's Grille was one of the more underrated restaurants in WDW and unfortunately we had just discovered it three or four trips ago. It was a step down price-wise from the top-of-the-line restaurants, but it was still a place to get a nice pork chop or seafood dish...

    50 MAGICal Enhancements for the 50th ...

    I've somewhat thoroughly read all 21 pages thus far and no one's mentioned the original post's comments about "AA" which I'm assuming is The American Adventure? Watching the final video this trip it struck me as awfully dated -- nothing like ending on a shot of Lance Armstrong (shortly after...

    New Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining coming to Trattoria al Forno

    Ugh. While it was never crowded for breakfast, we thought it was the best breakfast on property. I understand the appeal of a character meal at an "upscale" resort that didn't have one (and also at a venue that seemed to be underperforming), but I'm going to be so disappointed to miss out on...

    The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History'

    I saw it last Friday morning and the crowds were certainly equal -- and probably a little heavier -- than when I saw it in October. That said, the show is now advertised in the times guide which is wasn't back in October so I would've expected heavier crowds. However, at the start of the...

    Disney springs not doing so well.....

    I always thought that stores in Disney Springs, while they'd love to make money there, were moreso there for brand recognition as others have stated. Similar to Times Square stores with their presumably astronomic rent, those stores are there simply for their name to be ingrained into the...

    Disney springs not doing so well.....

    The Disney Springs Under Armor location does have Star Wars-themed and Marvel-themed pieces. Not a ton, but maybe 6-8 combined between the two IPs.

    Disney springs not doing so well.....

    It seems that Portobello may be doing just that. I had breakfast at Wolfgang Puck Express about a week ago and sat next to a cast member who works the little kiosks right out front of the soon-to-be Paddlefish and she said that soon after Paddlefish's opening, Portobello is closing down for a...
