    Peter Pan's Flight vs Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

    Although I think Peter Pan's Flight is the better ride, I'll be riding 7DMT as much as possible, but never riding PPF any more. That's because I can't do moving walkways and PPF's walkway doesn't stop.

    Are you a Disney shareholder? If so.. why?

    I bought $1000 worth, just a couple months after 9/11, when Disney stock was just $20 a share. It was also during a time when I was working full time, and I thought it was a good purchase. I'm not panicking that it's decreased over $25/share in the last few weeks. It's still worth about 7-8...

    So if you were there yesterday for the 50th, what did you think?

    Was anyone here at the 50th anniversary of Disney LAND? If you were, you'd see how poorly WDW was treated by comparison. At DL, they had a ceremony, including people who'd been at the original grand opening, Mickey and gang on-stage, etc. By comparison what did WDW get? Just 50th anniversary...

    Advance Check-In & Pin Trading Questions

    Regarding pin trading-there is a cork board/pin trading location in each themed land in the MK. Often the blue umbrella guest experience locations can tell you exactly where they are. I know that's where I found out where they were in DHS. Also, don't miss the big pin trading board in the...

    FAUCI to premier on Disney+ October 6

    Ooh-that's tomorrow! And is it going to be free for all Disney + subscribers?

    Can someone explain Genie+ to me?

    Is it correct that if you're staying on-site, you can get your first Lighting Lane reservation at 7:00 am? But then you can't get another one until you've used that first one (or at least scanned in via MB for your first one?

    What's deflated your WDW enthusiasm the most: Pandemic or Genie+

    As a PP said, it's been the nickel and dime-ing. Genie + was the final nail in the coffin for me. Then the day of the 50th anniversary, from what I heard (I wasn't there), really affirmed my belief that WDW has become just all about money. Was anyone at Disneyland on their 50th? DS worked on...

    Kitchen Sink experience back to normal?

    Boo! The experience is such a major reason to order the kitchen sink!

    Scooter Rental Question

    Another VERY satisfied Gold Mobility customer. Yes, they can't leave your scooter-you must meet them-but let me tell you how it worked for me, then you can decide what's convenient. They texted me the night before, then we texted when I got to MCO. When the DME bus arrived at the resort, I...

    News Magic Kingdom’s Flag Retreat Returns

    Terrific! And I'm glad to see the live music. For a time, they played recorded music. Disneyland had live music when I was there-much better. Is the time published? I'd really like to see it when I'm there.

    News Walkway between Disney's Grand Floridian and Disney's Polynesian Resort currently closed

    I hope it's finished and reopened soon. I'm staying at VGF in a couple of weeks, and I was planning on going to the Polynesian for food a couple of times.

    Stacey gone

    Julliard must have found out, and threatened to revoke her degree. She was a graduate of Julliard in, I think, dance. Julliard is VERY hard to get into, and she must be very talented. Somehow that always struck me funny when I'd see her perkiness on the resort TV. I'll miss her.

    Helping Someone with Disability Issues in the Parks

    Another advantage of an ECV over a wheelchair is for the user. Independence! Go where/when you want. Want to see what was happening around that corner? Spy a souvenir you might be interested in? I've been in both, a wheelchair when I fractured my pelvis, and an ECV at WDW, and when I was...

    Any Golfers Out There

    Are they letting solos reserve nowadays? Last time my DH tried to reserve tee times before we went, they wouldn't take solo reservations more than 3 days in advance. Kind of surprising for a place that seems to want you to reserve everything months in advance.
