    News My Disney Experience and website to become the only way to make dining reservations

    I’ve never called for a dining reservation, being quite happy with online booking. I will however lament the lack of “WDW DINE” as a phrase. 😁. As a Brit where spelling out words from numbers hasn’t caught on it’s always fun to see these on my US travels.

    Is Disneyland Paris better than the parks at WDW?

    I would say Paris looks stunning in the sunshine! Far more elegant than WDW. However Paris suffers from grey skies a lot of the time, which takes the shine off things! I also find the Paris park to have a lot of empty space, and it seems the walk between attractions feels both longer and...

    CM Attacked at ToT

    A quote from the report; “We don’t tolerate unsafe behavior,” a Disney spokeswoman said when reached for comment.” Really? How about “we don’t tolerate guests acting that way towards cast members”? Or is their safety not a concern? And why did Disney not press charges? I admit I know nothing...

    Will the parks really be dead at the end of August?

    I wouldn’t say that! A lot of the UK head on their holidays the first half of the school break, which traditionally runs mid July to first week of September. There will be some UK visitors, but many will be there earlier in the summer. In addition the poor performance of the £ and brexit...

    Countdown to a 11 day stay

    One of my favourite things to do for a break from the parks is to hire a boat and float around Seven Seas lagoon for an hour or two. So relaxing!

    Trying to figure out my post trip state of mind

    I think much of my post WDW blues come from not only actually visiting the world, but the weeks of anticipation beforehand. WDW is a great place to visit if you like to tinker and plan. What with meals you can book, fast passes to snag, park hours and crowd levels to muse, and much more, there...

    Why did WDW stop making EVENTS out of Disney movies?

    I wondered the same thing, why there is no synergy between parks and marketing. Sure adding live entertainment such as a new parade has large costs, but how hard would it be to show a trailer of the next big film ahead of HEA or ROL? Or to add photo ops at parks or resort hotels - not always...

    What happens when 2 from a party dont show?

    Yea more than happy to sit in the lounge or up at the bar when it’s available, but this isn’t always the case, particularly with restaurants inside the parks. Plus sometimes after a hard day pounding the pavement I like a proper chair to relax in, rather than a bar stool to perch on.

    What happens when 2 from a party dont show?

    In fairness it’s not that we do it because we don’t care, it’s because the Disney reservation system forces us to book for two people because it rarely shows availability for a single person. I get why Disney limit availability for solo diners. They want to maximise profit by filling every...

    What happens when 2 from a party dont show?

    I do the same. So often can’t find a table for one, so I book for two. If it’s breakfast I just tell them my teenage Son/Daughter can’t be bothered to get out of bed and so it’s just “Dad” on his own! Never had a problem with it from any of the CM’s. I always leave a big tip to make up for the...

    New gorilla born at Animal Kingdom

    Haha I just love that in the midsts of all the stuff about nature, saving animals in the wild, animal enrichment and bonding, the Disney article manages to sneak in “oh there’s also a celebration cup cake” Haha. Does a day not go by in WDW without a special cup cake for something. I have...

    News Improvements coming to the entrances of all four Walt Disney World theme parks

    I don’t totally disagree, and certainly there is a percentage of people who just clearly are not ever aware of their situation. However I would also say that perhaps if you haven’t heard the CM it’s because you're one of the thousands of people who are making their first trip to the world, and...

    Which Disney’s Water Park is better Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon?

    I love the lush tropical theme at typhoon, just works so well. I find all the fake white snow at blizzard really off putting, and it’s just so bright in the sun it makes me want to shut my eyes the whole time (something I normally reserve for the lazy river ride or Hall of Presidents 😁)

    Ever had this happen before? A turnstile saga...

    Or if maybe they just put on more CM, opened more turnstiles so the AP line wasn’t needed???

    Who wants to see a new Disney location with a real block and mortar castle?

    Less stone, and more well painted cement! Plus cleaverly disgused whole sections of the wall at the base that swing open for cast access. Still, it’s my favourite Disney castle by far, and the dragons awesome.
