    News Blizzard Beach closing for extended refurbishment this year with enhancements coming

    Looking at bio’s pics, there’s definitely not much indication of anything new yet. Looks like someone forgot to replenish the chemicals in the wave pool. Nice and green!

    Mickey Not So Scary 2019 Party Pass!

    Just goes to show you that the “limited” number of party tickets aren’t really ever limited. They’ve already pushed that number beyond what is comfortable IMO. Unless sales are really just so bad that they need the boost, I’d avoid the parties altogether. As others have already said, it’s become...

    News Direct bus service to water parks restored.

    Definitely good news. Maybe we can save the rental car or taxi next time we’re there. It took a good hour to get to the water parks without the direct bus, that’s simply not acceptable to us.

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Historical Construction/Impressions

    We're with you. We booked DVC for early August thinking we would definitely get to see everything after the initial crowds started to die down a little. We haven't purchased airfare yet, so I'm a little hesitant until we hear more about a RotR opening date. I would really hate to give up the...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    I hear you and don’t want to start an argument or go too far off topic, but DVC perks have changed over the years as I’m sure you know. I doubt they ever promised it as a “lifetime” benefit, otherwise it would be in your contract. Things have obviously changed a lot since then, and the list of...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Ha, not sure it’s ever been relevant, but it’s rumored to potentially be closed permanently and only used for private events. Apparently there might be an agreement with the Swolphin that has kept it open this long. I agree that the BW area should see a lot more traffic thanks to the gondolas...

    News Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage closing for refurbishment later this month

    I agree, but this is why this is precisely when they should have been changing this show over. Even if it took six months, having another new offering with a high capacity would really help DHS when SWGE hits. This was an obvious and fairly easy place to do it IMO.

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    I’m sure that’s the hope, and then they can jack up the price to even crazier levels. To each their own, but I’m already spending too much money at a Disney resort to drop another $200 for a reserved seat, some shade, and snacks.

    News Beaches & Cream closing Aug 5 for refurb and expansion

    Other resort arcades that were replaced failed to reappear, and like you said, there’s not really an obvious alternative. I don’t think it’s been confirmed, but it is a big space so maybe something will survive. I personally doubt it though. My ideal setup would preserve the existing restaurant...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    Pretty much, and likely smaller than my circle in the pic above. I assume families with young kids are one of the biggest targets of cabanas, so that will likely be a good spot for them. I’d never fork out the kind of money Disney gets for these, but for me this spot wouldn’t be preferable as...

    Yacht/Beach Club cabanas

    We also noticed this last week. I just assumed they were doing some utility or maintenance work. It’s an interesting location for cabanas as it’s right along the main path. Here’s the rough location:

    News Beaches & Cream closing Aug 5 for refurb and expansion

    We were just there on Monday, got lucky and scored a lunch reservation an hour before. Happy we got to enjoy it once more before the renovation. It’s been a favorite of ours for a long time, just hope it retains its charm and terrific service. Brian is one of the best servers in WDW. Expanding...

    News Disney After Hours Events expands to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom

    I think it’s a shame these events are marketed as “do a ton of stuff in less time!” Personally I like to vacation at my own pace and enjoy everything without racing around trying to “do it all”. The price is crazy too IMO, but to each their own I guess.

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

    What are they thinking? In a park with too few family attractions, they have to realize how popular this will be, even after SWGE opens. Have they not noticed TSMM all these years? At another park they’re squandering an entire attraction space for a queue yet here they’re cutting it back when...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    I’m about 10 minutes outside of AC, know plenty of local iron workers. Cool pic, but I imagine this has to violate an NDA? I’m guessing this is another potential attachment point for the facade or theming?

    News Coronado Springs Expansion - Gran Destino Tower

    The changes to the rooms, lobby, and the restaurants I can live with, and they’ll change again in the future. It’s the tower that ruins things for me.

    Tom Sawyer Island - 2 Month Refurb

    Honest question, specifically what do you think needs a refurb? We were over there in August and other than the barrel bridge, everything seemed to be operating and looking as it should. I don’t always look close enough though, I’m just trying to keep up with my kids. I really don’t think...

    Flamingo Crossings Housing

    Sad to see VW go but I understand. I was there in 2000 and it was still pretty nice but it has to be in bad shape if no significant renovation has been done.

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    Certainly a matter of opinion. The pic I posted was from Morocco and is probably the furthest away you can get while in the park, so it naturally appears a bit smaller from there. It’s far more dominant the closer you get to it, but then it’s also obscured more by the buildings in front of your...
