    News Christopher Robin's bedroom coming to UK

    this is how it was when I worked there- no "bedroom" but the backdrop for the photos (there's actually a small chance that I took that photo- or one just like it- if it's a photopass one as that would be the right time period) it was remodeled to the "bedrooom" sometime after 2011, and then...

    Positive Experiences with Guest Services?

    Not from a complaint or anything, but on a trip that my daughter and I took in Feb we had a stack of about 50 postcards to mail out to people who had helped contribute to the trip one way or the other (mostly through my youtube channel) and wanted to see if we could do something special with...

    Florida Resident Disney Vloggers on YouTube

    Yet that is the truth. There is very little that I don't like or enjoy about the parks (and not just Disney). I ride everything- large thrills, coasters, family rides, kiddie rides, I see all the shows and parades and I thoroughly enjoy every bit of it. To assume that I (or others) have to...

    Florida Resident Disney Vloggers on YouTube

    This is what a lot of us do. If I'm there at an event (such as an opening) then I'm "reporting"- showing what's there, talking about the ride/ attraction/ etc does and doesn't do, what's offered, things that are good to be aware of, etc. And honestly that's what most of the vlogs out there...

    Florida Resident Disney Vloggers on YouTube

    It's a hard line to walk. When a park or company invites you in on their dime, part of the deal is that you're there to help them look good. But at the same time you also don't want to jetison your integrity or honesty. Some have an easier time than others doing it. And the more you receive...

    What's with the wait times!? (hint.. they're low)

    I got to do that several times when I was working at WDW. There were times I would deliberately not take the utilidors down through Magic Kingdom but find a stairway and walk through the park to our base under Main Street just so I could see the park empty. Definitely an odd feeling, but also...

    What's with the wait times!? (hint.. they're low)

    I don't think that anyone is debating whether or not the attendance is low, or even if the executives are alarmed. It's the reasons why, whether or not they are genuine cause for deep alarm, and if they will correct themselves or not.

    Per Jim Hill, the Star Wars restaurant is coming.

    When we lived in SoCal the only way we'd go to Disneyland at the time was to pull the kids out of school. And my wife and I were both teachers to boot, so it meant vacation and "sick" days. That was back in 2001-2004, so obviously some things have changed, but many of those living within a...

    Rumor Inside Out to Replace Journey into Imagination with Figment?

    if you're referring to the meet and greet, it's because almost no one knew he was there. He was in an out of the way location, hidden behind reflective glass, on the side of the Imagination pavilion, where the Disney credit card meet and greet is (which is also terribly slow) He would actually...

    Per Jim Hill, the Star Wars restaurant is coming.

    Disneyland being slow is a perfect storm of several things- almost all of which will be rectified in the next month: Their tier pricing on the tickets, making summer tickets very expensive compared to other times of the year. Summer has been the "off season" and slower than other parts of the...

    What's with the wait times!? (hint.. they're low)

    In fairness to Sacramento, it doesn't have anywhere near the population base or the size of the facilities that the other fairs you mention have. I've been blessed to have been able to be at all of them at some point. Texas has easily the best fair I've ever been to but Orange County and LA...

    What's with the wait times!? (hint.. they're low)

    ^This. The pattern has been developing the last few summers already, with many calling the last couple of summers the "off season" now because of how quiet it was. Combine that with a very large price hike and expensive tickets, and then the overyhype of what the expected crowds were going to...

    Parks gone to the dogs...

    Maybe you aren't reading the same thread I am. Obviously they aren't questioning anyone I "personally know." But there are several criticizing any service animals being allowed at all in the parks or other places, and other comments that are rude towards anyone with a service animal that they...

    Parks gone to the dogs...

    I understand some being frustrated with "service" dogs that aren't really trained as service dogs, and some of the problems that has caused. I understand being irritated with the abuse of the ADA by some. But the ignorance and horrid attitudes by some towards those with legitimate needs...

    News PhotoPass at some character locations being replaced by automated cameras

    What Drizgirl said! Photopass has a fantastic "photo recovery" system that you can use anyplace there is a photo counter (any of the parks, Disney springs, or some of the resorts) or even call or email them within a couple of weeks after the trip. As long as you can remember about when the...
