    DVC reservation and WDW park reservation

    Normally this is the sort of stuff I have no issues figuring out on my own, but if somebody can explain the details on this, I will greatly appreciate it. I had a DVC reservation at Hilton Head the end of this month, which I canceled - clearly I did not have park tickets for this reservation...

    Thoughts on some F&W special events (and Coral Reef)

    My wife and I went to F&W over "Jersey Weekend" (Wed Nov 6 - Sun Nov 10) and I figured I would summarize our trip. We went for Food and Wine, and not much else. The only park we entered was Epcot. We did go to Disney Springs one day. We do this every other year or so, and try to cram in as...

    No room at the Inn

    I know people have been saying that it is getting harder and harder to book rooms at the last minute, however I have never seen it like this. My wife and I were talking last week and said we really need to get away. We looked at some flights and they were dirt cheap (well, cheaper than they...

    Anybody event rent out and rent points at the same time to get an 11 month booking?

    While reading all of these threads going on about people walking in dates, and buying where they want to stay, and buying for value a though hit me. Has anybody who owned at say SSR used a company such as David's to rent out their points, while at the same time renting points at somewhere such...

    A day of broken rides at WDW

    We not really broken, but what are the chances of this happening? We arrive at MK last Thursday and go directly to Haunted Mansion Ride Haunted Manston, and sit in the graveyard for 10 minutes before the ride restarts. Head over to People Mover, about to get on the ramp up, and are told it is...

    Ideas for July 4th evening

    We - meaning my wife and I and 2 or 3 children will be at WDW this year over July 4th. We really don't want to do the full on insane "get into a park early and camp out and fight the crowds to see fireworks and then get caught in the mob that is leaving" thing, but it would be nice if we could...

    Additional Charge for Sugar in Iced Tea?

    I belong to a DVC group on Facebook. One of the members there posted a picture of a receipt from Cape May She had ordered a sweet tea, while someone else in the party ordered unsweetened iced tea. She had a charge on her bill for an extra 50 cents for "sugar cane syrup flavoring" As she...

    Jumping Ship

    Maybe DCL will see this (and if they do, I am doubtful anything will happen). I just can't take the price of DCL anymore. My wife and I just booked a 7 night Celebrity cruise out of Bayonne to Bermuda. With perks and discounts it came to $3,100- total, for an ocean view stateroom. Bayonne...

    I:RoE globe was down

    Last Sunday (June 22) the Illuminations globe was non-functioning. There were a few sporadic bursts of LED action and then nothing - it remained dark the entire show. (spinning, opening, and fire all worked, just no LEDs). I looked, but don't see any other threads on the subject - anybody...

    ADR at Turf Club - makes me laugh

    This last Friday (June 27) we decided we would eat dinner at the Turf Club. We were looking for a 6:00 PM reservation. I called at about10:00 AM, and Disney Dining offered me two times. 5:15 and 8:00 - I took 5:15. At 5:15 we went to check in, and there was a grand total of 6 people (NOT 6...

    OK - So BOG really is good

    We ate dinner at BOG last week - on a walk up with only 15 minutes wait (so that was a suprise) We totally did not plan on eating there, but 4 out of the 5 in our group were at the end of their rope (Me, I never stop) and were looking for someplace to eat. Just for the heck of it, I asked, and...

    Thoughts on the Treehouses

    We just got back from a week in a treehouse villa (June 21 - 28 , 2014). Just some thoughts. - Nice units, love the layout, and plenty of space. - Apparently the fold out couch is not too comfortable - I didn't sleep on it, but others did. - We were in a handicapped accesable unit, so we...

    Bridging a discounted ticket to a extra day.

    I know that you can (or a least could) bridge a discounted ticket to an AP. Buy a discounted ticket for $45 off of face value, enter the park with it to "lock in" the value, and then upgrade it to an AP and get the full value of the ticket. My question is, can I do the same thing, but only...

    The best fish I ever ate

    We just got back from our F&W trip. Three seminars, many tastings, and a dinner at V&A over 3 days - whew. When I get the time I'll post some comments (seeing as F&W ended yesterday, that's not very helpfull) however there is one dish that I just cannot get off my mind. It was the fish...

    Food and Wine trip is now pretty much a lock

    Just needed to celebrate/brag. My wife and I wanted to take an adults only trip for F&W (not the first time we have done so). However, because she is a teacher, the only time we can go is during "Jersey Weekend" - for those who don't know, all NJ Teachers have a 4 day weekend in November. It is...

    Hess is closing all gas stations

    Not sure if this is the right forum for it, but it does effect trip planning. I also searched and did not find this in another thread. Hess has announced that it is closing all of it's gas stations and will be focusing on its exploration efforts instead. Not sure what this means for WDW...

    5 in a VWL 1 BR

    There will be 5 of us (two adults, three kids 6, 10, 13) going in June. I know Jambo has 1BR units that sleep 5, but I have heard that it is OK to put 5 into the VWL units as well. By OK I mean permitted, not as in you can sneak one in. I realize that they will not have the sleeper chair...

    Just wondering how I missed the SHADES OF DEATH HALF MARATHON http://www.shadesofdeath.org/ when it was held about 40 miles from my home ? What a cool logo, I wonder what the finisher medal looked like. For those wondering, it is called that becase part of the course goes down...
