    Mardi Gras 2017

    Runs 2/4 - 3/24. Parade every night! Ditto live New Orleans music, food booths. Main stage concerts still limited primarily to Saturdays, artists to be announced. With MK seemingly going nighttime parade-less this Spring, this is a shot across the Mouse's bow.

    Just back from Magic, random news update

    Got a great deal on the final (for a while) Miami sailing of the Magic. As always, top notch service, lucked out with the nicest weather in weeks on Castaway Cay. Some minor news updates, new policies implemented, so I was told, in the past week or two: No more formal nights on cruises less...

    Made my way to Pharmacy last night, the "speakeasy" bar/restaurant in Dellagio on Sand Lake Road. In keeping with the theme, there's no signage--you enter through a door cleverly designed to look like a nondescript elevator. Inside there are a lot of vintage (probably faux vintage) mirrors, a...

    Disney Springs observations

    First time back in a couple months last night. Some random thoughts: Garage has done nothing to help parking--exiting and entering traffic cross, which creates a mess. I get why--the current garage was designed to cater to I-4 traffic, with the assumption that most surface traffic from...

    Artegon Marketplace review

    Got over to the new Artegon Marketplace, the new venture that replaced the long-flailing Festival Bay mall on north I-Drive. My initial reaction: shock. Festival Bay may have been a dead mall, but it was also the most beautiful mall in Orlando, with fountains and elaborate tile mosaics. Even...

    New Return Procedure at Soarin'

    A few posts on this in the Anna & Elsa thread, but probably deserves its own, as this attraction has a wider fanbase. Apparently today started the new "no standby" line policy at Soarin'. From what I gather when you walk up, you're given a paper ticket with a return time. Problem is, all the...

    Gringotts--size issues?

    Haven't tried it myself, but hearsay suggests the ride is even less forgiving than the original Forbidden Journey. Any first hand accounts?

    Breadbox review

    Stopped by Breadbox last night, the sandwich shop that took over Cigarz. Although "sandwich shop" is a bit of a misnomer. This isn't Subway, Quiznos, or even Earl of Sandwich. It's fast-casual, not quick-serve, with house-made potato chips and draft beer. The atmosphere is a bit odd, a mix...

    Vivo Italian Kitchen

    Got a chance tonight to try the newly opened Vivo Italian Kitchen in CityWalk, formerly Pastamore. Overall it reminded me of one of one of those yuppie Italian restaurants every city seemed to get in the 90s. I don't mean that as an insult, really, but that is the vibe. Lots of open spaces...

    2:00 a.m. closing

    The Save PI blog actually posted about this two weeks ago, but it seems to have been buried with the news about the Poly: everyone signing a lease in Disney Springs--the restaurants, the shops--is required to stay open until 2:00 a.m...

    Sea World attendance drops 13%

    Part of it late Easter ... but certainly not all of it.,0, I know knee-jerk reaction is to say Blackfish, but I don't think we can rule out the price increases, or the fact...
