    Coral Reef Restaurant Opinions

    We've eaten there every trip since the restaurant opened. Sometimes it's great, sometimes not, but we've never had a terrible experience like some people report. Since my Mom was in food service management for many years I tend to be extremely polite to wait staff and understanding of the...

    Fountains near Journey to Imagination

    The fountains use Laminar Flow Technology applied by engineer Mark Fuller. Here is a good article about him. http://www.wdwfanzone.com/2013/07/the-magical-future-of-water/

    Look out, here they come Disney

    People need to get over it........... The mores change with every generation and the past can't be changed. We used to laugh at, and make fun of, the attitudes and doings of previous generations. Today people want to eliminate the past rather than learn from it. It reminds me of the ancient...

    I don't need the fries

    I'm afraid that this type of thing happens fairly often in the U.S. My last incident was at a grocery store. My bill was $8.50. Since I already had a pocket jammed with change I gave the young lady a $10.00 bill and two quarters. She looked at me as if I'd just told her I was from Mars. She...

    Why dislike for Iger?

    Thanks for the insider information...... And. Walt put a huge amount of his profits back into the parks. He used Disneyland income to finance the WDW project and a large amount of that money was his personal resources. Well then we'll have to agree to disagree since my personal experiences are...

    Why dislike for Iger?

    Correct..... And you also don't have to put people in charge who's only wish is to build their golden parachute by raping the parks. Todays Disney leaders don't give a rats butt for the people who visit those parks. Except to extract the contents of their wallets. Walt Disney actually cared for...

    Why dislike for Iger?

    Your last sentence explains why you've taken your position. I'm acquainted with a large number of people and almost none of them can afford to go to Europe or on a cruise. You're assuming that most of the country makes as much money as you do. They don't. For almost everyone in middle America a...

    Why dislike for Iger?

    Tell you what............ Google "Opening day at Disneyland" (If you know who Art Linkletter was you'll realize what a big deal it was to get him to MC the show) Disneyland was the most anticipated theme park opening EVER. And with the decent prices the place was packed from opening day on. The...

    Why dislike for Iger?

    Long before you came along. Of course you likely haven't bothered to study the history of Disney. In 1955 Adult admission to Disneyland was $1.00 and the rides were $.10 to $.30 each. Those prices were well within the affordable range for average Americans. Also from The Orlando Sentinel; When...

    Visitors cap per day?

    Yup....... It was the Fourth of July in, I believe, 1985, before Noon. We were in Epcot when an announcement came over the park speakers that if anyone was waiting on friends or relatives to enter the park they would not be allowed in until some of the guest already in Epcot had left. I was told...

    I don't need the fries

    And that's why the birds at WDW are so fat and aggressive. I've seen people give an entire order of the greasy things to the scavenging pirates birds.

    Why dislike for Iger?

    The Disney characters, yes. But not the Marvel and other non Disney creations. Only a leech like Iger would populate Walt Disneys dream parks with cheap, tawdry, super hero types created for the comic book audience by other studios. I remember watching Walt every week on his TV shows where he...
