    Promotions for... Christmas?

    So first, Disney releases a free dining offer that runs up until two days before Christmas. Which means that you could be there for Christmas/New Year's and get free dining for all of it.

    Fall and Holiday Offer -- $0 Discount?

    So this actually came up when I was looking at some dates in late October for All-Star Movies: The dates I was searching for were not included in the Fall and Holiday room offer, as they are in October, so I get why there's no discount. What I don't get is why the site shows a promotional...

    I started a thread about the reserved tee times at the mini-golf courses. There were a number of replies and discussion about it. Now it seems to have been completely deleted. Why? I understand that there was another thread on the subject already in progress that I missed, but why not simply...

    Getting Out of the Disney Store Business?

    It was announced that our local Disney Store is closing later this summer. There seems to be a lack of any statement at all from Disney corporate, but our local newspaper did a story on the closing and spoke with the management of that particular store as well as the management of the mall it...

    Earliest Time of Year for Water Parks

    Folks, What would you say is the earliest time in the year when you could guarantee that the weather at Walt Disney World would be adequately warm for water parks and pools? I know that any time of year often has days where it is warm enough, and that at least one water park is open year...

    Using Package Tickets Early

    Hello, Prior to the change to date-based pricing, if you had tickets that were tied to a Magic Your Way package (room/tickets/dining), you could go to Guest Relations and begin using the tickets up to 3 days before your resort check-in date. So, for example, if your check-in date was July 10th...

    Pop Century -- Standard vs. Preferred

    Hello, We've never stayed at Pop Century before. Can someone tell me how much actual difference there is, in terms of walking distance to the main building, between a standard room and a preferred room?

    Stan Lee, Brett Kavanaugh, and #MeToo

    So I've been watching the news coverage of Stan Lee's death, and I've been wondering where the consistency is. Stan Lee has, over the past year or two, had multiple allegations of sexual assault leveled against him. Yet all of the news stories I am reading about his passing are full of...
