    Parking in Miami

    I just booked my first Disney Cruise ever, which I'm extremely excited about. It sails from Miami in November, and I'm now working out some of the logistics. We will be driving to Miami, and I'm looking through some options on where to park. Parking in the Miami cruise terminal is on the...

    D23 Fanniversary

    Has anyone here been to one of the D23 Fanniversary events? I did a search, and it looks like most of the info on here came from when they were announced. I won a spot at the Cast Member version of it early Saturday morning and am curious as to what to expect.

    My First Trip to Disneyland, Plus the D23 Expo and Walt Disney Studios

    I've taken many trips to Walt Disney World (not counting working there for about 5 years now). However, I only just made it to the Disneyland Resort for the first time this August. I'm not really sure why I hadn't made the trip out there, but I was finally *strongly* encouraged to by a group...

    WDWCelebrations Holiday Hoopla

    Anyone else going? :xmas: I'll be there for a couple of events, but my work schedule changed rather dramatically for that week and I can't make it to most of it.

    Picture of 40th Anniversary Merchandise Tag

    I found this today, in of all places, the Orlando airport Disney gift shop. It was attached to an infant-sized shirt with Mickey and the classic WDW logo.

    Retro Music Loop at Imagination

    I was visiting Epcot on Thursday with some friends, and we made our way over to the Imagination pavilion to watch Captain EO. Beforehand, we visited the restrooms at the far end of the pavilion, and it sounded like the original Imagination music loop was playing in there. At the time I...

    In case you haven't seen it yet, Google is celebrating Pac-Man's 30th anniversary. Go to Google, and be sure to wait about 30 seconds, it's worth it. :)

    Baby Rhino at Kilimanjaro Safaris

    A baby white rhino is now making appearances on the Kilimanjaro Safaris savanna. She was first out yesterday for a short time, and most of the day today. Know that there is no guarantee from day to day whether she'll be out, and if you ask a CM at the entrance, you'll probably get a themed...

    RIP, Protein Spill

    Sad news, indeed. As of a few days ago, the phrase "protein spill" is no longer an official part of the Walt Disney World vernacular. When a Guest re-visits a recent meal, it is now a not-nearly-as-fun-to-say "Code V." :( :hurl:
