    WDW Information AM Radio

    For any of you that drove down to WDW during the 80's and 90's, you will remember that when you could finally tune in to the WDW information radio station, you knew you were close and the excitement became that much more unbearable. Now I remember several different spiels that used to run on the...

    Heart Broken

    I did something last week I've never had to do before in my life and it was actually physically painful. We had a trip to WDW booked for June to stay for a week, but last week I had to cancel it. There were some severe storms here in Atlanta back last month and we had some major hail damage to...

    Free Resort Upgrades

    I was talking with my wife the other night about our upcoming trip to WDW and she and I got on the subject of the free resort upgrades. Are these still given out? If they are do they just give them out randomly or is there usually a code you have to give the CM? I would love to stay at a deluxe...

    Purpledragon's trip report

    I went down to WDW for a week with the family from 6/3 to 6/10. Crowds were very light in all parks on Thursday and Friday, almost everything was a walk on. Gaydays started on Friday and by Saturday the crowd levels increased significantly thru the weekend but wait times for most attractions...

    Is it worth it?

    I've had a few discussions with my sister on the subject of a DVC membership. I'd love to do it but right now I can't afford it, but my sister is seriously considering it. So I have to ask, those of you here who have a DVC membership, is it worth the cost? How exactly does it work out as far as...

    Trip Planning DVD

    Have they made any changes to the Trip Planning DVD or is it still just recycled footage from the YoaMD "Disney Parks" promotion? I miss the old planning DVDs that actually detailed each park and gave you in depth info on the most popular attractions, like the last one they did on 2005 (Erin...

    Just booked my family vacation

    Taking my family to Disney for my kids first visits. We're going June 4th thru the 10th. Neither of my kids have been before, my daughter is 13 and my son will be 3(both adopted). With the huge age gap I'm kind of concerned about us being limited on things to do as a family, but given that...

    Question about crowds

    I'm trying to figure out when the best time to take my family to WDW. I was thinking about the 1st or 2nd week in June. I know the summer is usually busy but how early do the crowds start rolling in? Would we hit minimal crowds if we went in early June? I was initially planning on going during...

    A Model Day At the Magic Kingdom

    I did a quick scan and didn't see any other references to this video and if it has already been posted I'm sorry. This is an awesome video of the Magic Kingdom done with the Tilt/Shift technique. It shows random events around the park throughout the day from opening till closing. Enjoy...

    Hey guys, I'm looking to get some info from the AP holder and Fla residence who visit the parks on a regular basis. For those who have been visiting on and off the past few weeks, have you seen a steady decline of guests this past week or so, now that schools are starting back? My trip isn't...

    WDW now on iTunes

    Not sure if this has been announced but I figured I'd share, iTunes now offers all the Travel channel WDW shows. They have a package of all their shows in one called "Season of Disney", or you can simply buy the shows individually. I'm so excited that they finally did this. :sohappy:

    When to Visit?

    I'm planning a solo trip to WDW later this year (since DW won't let me take our son till hes at least 3 or 4 :p ) and I'm wondering if September is still a good time to go. I know that park attendance is up significantly and there really is no time when the park is "empty", but I'm wondering...

    PurpleDragon's WDW Update

    Just got back from a week long trip in WDW. Since we had a large group with children, I didn't get time to break away and take many pics, but I can at least give you what I did get. So here we go: We stayed at Pop Century and first day we were there I noticed a couple of cranes past the...

    New WDW Vacation Planning DVD?

    Have they released an updated WDW planning DVD? I ordered one earlier this year and I was not at all impressed with what they showed or the cast members on it (Erin, Dave, etc...) I was just curious if they have released a new one with info on the Year of a million dreams celebration, the...
