    REALLY USO? REALLY?!?!?

    Comic Strip area? That would stink. I love Popeye! Best raft ride I've ever been on. And there's just something about Dudley. Not the best visuals and it's not in tip top shape, but it always makes me laugh. As for kids not knowing who he is, I can see that, but Disney keeps characters that...

    REALLY USO? REALLY?!?!?

    Actually bummed to hear that. I like Woody. That area is actually one of my faves in the park. The water play area and ball area are great. SpongeBob Store is one of my favorites.

    Volcano Bay

    Not if they allowed for standby lines. Again, wait times have ranged from 2 to 6 hours. Who is going to want to pay $70 per person to go to a water park, to spend 6 hours in a lazy river or wave pool and go on 2 to 3 slides? Also, they haven't been selling Express passes for the past 3 days...

    Volcano Bay

    I don't understand this argument at all. Was admission discounted for the first few days? We're not talking about some billionaire with no theme park experience who decided to open his 1st park. It's not 1955. Universal in Orlando alone, has almost 30 years of theme park experience. I'll give...

    Volcano Bay

    From what I understand, you can only go on the slides that aren't part of Tapu Tapu, regardless if there are no lines or not. And from everything we've seen so far, none of the slides have had no wait.

    Pitchforks out for Universal and Comcast.

    Opinions, which of course you are entitled to. However, to be fair, IoA has been voted by park guests as the best theme park in the world, every year since it opened. Pandora will keep attendance high at AK for about a year or so because it's something new. It does not (and will not) hold the...

    Volcano Bay

    There are 16 reviews as of today. 14 of them are negative. Sorry, I don't buy the "It's opening weekend" excuse. Not in this case. Tapu Tapu was a bad idea from the get go. It was always simple math. That's where all the negativity is coming from.

    Pitchforks out for Universal and Comcast.

    We've definitely become more Universal people the past few years. I don't get the negative comments about Islands or Universal Studios. The only section of Islands that needs some serious work is Marvel, and 90% of that comes from the mess that is the queue for Dr. Doom. Dudley could obviously...

    Poly or Contemporary

    Why is that? Was there mold or something?

    Poly or Contemporary

    Poly, hands down. Even after the changes, which certainly weren't for the better, it's still a beautiful resort with great theming and excellent food. Contemporary is just too plain looking. Given you can get a room at the GF for the same money as a Tower Room, I would take that hands down.

    Volcano Bay

    I just got a refund on our VB tickets. Between 5 tickets and the cabana, cost was $800. Are we jumping the gun? Very possibly. However, if they work things out before July, we can always buy tickets and go then. If it's so busy that we can't get in, we wouldn't want to go anyway. I've been...

    Volcano Bay

    Pandora stole a lot of crowds initially because, as I've said before, it's something new in a park that hasn't seen something new in over a decade. That being said, despite the operational and logistical issues at Volcano Bay, all reviews have been excellent. Reviews for Pandora have been mixed...

    Volcano Bay

    I knew they were going to have issues with the Virtual Lines. Simple math said so. I'm pretty ticked off about Express though. We bought our tickets for the park last week and we also rented a cabana. If I can't buy Express passes and we aren't able to experience all the attractions, I'm going...

    ANYONE HAVE LUCK REDEEMING HARD ROCK REWARDS?

    Just called again for our stay in July. Once again, no availability. I'm really disappointed with this program. We've stayed over 25 nights there in 3 years, earned 3 free nights, and each year, we're told the same thing - No availability. Sorry, but that's crap. Make availability. We're staying...

    Few questions about Dining Plan

    We're there 7/7 - 7/15. I agree with the above. We spend 10-12 hours a day at the parks. 3 hours out of our day for dining isn't a big deal, especially since it's in July. And for us, Disney Dining is a HUGE part of the vacation. I don't consider it a necessary diversion. I consider it an...

    Few questions about Dining Plan

    Few questions about Dining Plan

    Thank you all. One more question. We are checking in late Friday evening and checking out early the following Saturday. So, we obviously won't be using any dining credits those 2 days. So even though we're technically staying for 8 nights, can we purchase the plan for the 7 days we'll be using it?

    Few questions about Dining Plan

    Hi all. Hoping some who know about the DDP can give me some info. We've never used the plan before, but are considering possibly trying it for this summer. We're somewhere in the middle between the regular dining plan not having enough sit down meals, and the Deluxe Plan having more than we...

    Wilderness Lodge - SERIOUSLY????

    I don't see any changes to Boulder Ridge at all, which is fine by me. I've stayed at OKW, BR, Boardwalk and BCV and BR had the nicest building and rooms, hands down. Obviously, I'm sure Poly and GF must give it a run for it's money.

    Wilderness Lodge - SERIOUSLY????

    Eh, I don't buy that. If you've been to one place enough times, it's not hard to tell by pics and videos if you like changes or not. The Lodge changes aren't a big deal. Only thing I don't like is the loss of more rooms to DVC, but for me, it's more of an issue of not liking the direction the...
