    Trip Report Rise of the Popcorn Bucket

    I’ve left notes or asked when I’ve seen mousekeeping. I might have called the front desk to ask for more as well. What sometimes works is leaving a tip with the note the first day. interesting, as in annoying, way to manage costs though. I don’t think the dollars saved outweighs guest...

    How would YOU have made a Star Wars land?

    Two completely different lands would increase the cost likely 50%. Not that it wouldn't be worth it, but that's still a lot of money.

    How would YOU have made a Star Wars land?

    I think the goal, and the one that really excited me, was the most important character in the land was supposed to be you. Having been to DL, it doesn't really hit that. You get a little of it - Stormtroopers walking someone for being 'chatty' at Oga's, asking them questions. I realized that...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day reports - Disney's Hollywood Studios

    There's a group of people less sensitive to ticket prices - pass holders. The people blacked out at Disney Land. We went to DL because we were in Orange County. I held my nose when I paid for a 1-day ticket. Fast forward months to this weekend. I was going to go this weekend because I have a...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day reports - Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I would have been there this weekend without the storm. I'd imagine many others in my position as well.

    News Major Hurricane Dorian impacts to Walt Disney World 2019

    That's about where I am in Jax, and about our current plan. Lots of neighbors rode out Matthew and Irma, but will be safer to just stay a little inland.

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I think you’re right. Blog Mickey reported that the code was in the newest version of the app. You’re right that the server just needs to turn it on. I’ll check Thursday from home.

    News College Football Season kicks off with the College GameDay Crew live from Magic Kingdom

    You might ask, was there "originally" a game scheduled in Orlando this weekend? Let me answer, no. Coincidentally around when Disney announced Galaxy's Edge Orlando opening was moving up to Labor Day, the Gator-Cane game got moved a weekend earlier to "week 0".

    Bob Iger: "We Don't Believe We Have A Pricing Issue At Our Domestic Parks"

    Edit: the +7% & -3% is domestic. Big impact of price increases. Is the 7 & 10% for domestic parks, and the 3% decline? It seemed like some of the parks did better this quarter, but definitely not DL. They don’t break down by park, but the blackouts must have driven some of it. I’m going to wait...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    My family enjoyed the datapad activities in Anaheim. We also really enjoyed impromptu character interactions with Chewie, Rey, Vi Moradi and a stormtroopers interrogation. I really like the addition of the mech-suit driver in pandora and the characters they have in galaxy’s edge so far seem fun...

    Your percentages are slightly off. https://www.thewaltdisneycompany.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/2018-Annual-Report.pdf Parks and resorts are about 25% of profits. Media networks is still significantly more. However media is shrinking while parks are growing. There’s a week until they report Q3.
