    DCA Closing at 5pm on 11/21/2019??

    Hi All, We're taking a long weekend at DLR in late Nov. and the times are starting to come out for our dates. Does anyone have any insight into why DCA is closing at 5pm on 11/21? It's open until anywhere from 8pm to 11pm the rest of that week. My first thought is corporate event or something...

    Festival of Holidays - Soft Opening

    As I understand it, Holidays at the Disneyland Resort officially begins tomorrow, 11/11. I visited DCA last night and Festival of Holidays had a soft opening with yummy food and drinks to enjoy! All of the Festival stations seemed to be operational. The only thing I saw missing were the Festival...

    Tony Baxter Tour at DLR 7/11/2014

    Hey all, maybe this is a regular thing and I'm just way out of te loop, but... Yesterday while sauntering through the lobby of the Grand Californian, I came across a large circle of people off to one side of the central area and Lo and Behold, Tony Baxter was in the middle of sharing a story (or...

    WDWFigment Featured on Disney Parks Blog!

    Hey all, I didn't notice this posted elsewhere, but glancing through Disney Parks Blog I noticed a familiar-sounding name mentioned in conjunction with a featured photo on the "Disney Parks After Dark" blog I've followed a lot of his stuff and his unyielding quests to capture the right shots...

    World of Color 2014

    Hey, just a quick question to those who frequent the parks: anything of note with WoC as it has returned to "normal" operation? I realize that they need to do work here and there, but it seemed like a relatively lengthy time down to de-prep the Frozen Advertisement Holiday Show (just kidding...

    Nov. Solo Trip Timed Just Right for Jingly Winter Dreams!

    In years past, I had the great fortune of frequent travel to the L.A. area for work and in particular, I usually ended up staying within about 8 miles of Katella and Harbor Blvd! Things changed and my job changed, more or less for the better, except for the fact that I haven't traveled a lot and...

    Pirates Evac'd / Pirates Merch Closed / RCFD responding

    Not sure of details at this point, but we were about one boat away from boarding POTC when we were hastily told to turn around and exit the way we came. In actuality, when we turned around, they sent us out the closest exit rather than snaking through the line. After exiting, they were clearly...

    "Lone Ranger Sneak Preview" at DHS

    This morning I was double-checking Park Hours for our trip coming up at the end of this week and noticed that DHS lists "Lone Ranger Sneak Preview" as an "Atmosphere" event taking place every half-hour throughout the day. I'm wondering if this is going to be a looping extended trailer shown...

    October Hours ???

    So, I'm looking at some October hours, which are only available through the 20-something. I had originally referred to 2012 hours during preliminary planning to get an idea of what to expect. According to 2012 hours, there were lots of late-ish park hour opportunities (AK until 7 each night...

    Grand Californian - New Add-on Membership!

    Woo Hoo! Just got the email confirmation that our resale contract closed and the deed is being processed by DVC to be transfered to us! We have been DVC Members by proxy of my parents ("Additional Purchaser") for a long time, but since the first time I stepped foot in Grand Californian, it was...

    Captain EO Construction walls

    Not sure when they went up, but there are construction walls up around "Captain EO Tribute". I don't know if this is the start of a removal, or if it's just some refreshing, etc. of the surrounding area. Nevertheless, I'm glad that I took the time to see it last weekend since I rarely make...

    Illuminations Inferno Barge

    We saw Illuminations last night and the Inferno Barge was not present (or at least not functioning). This was my first time seeing Illuminations since this past Dec. and I haven't heard anything about it being out of the show since. Anyone know if this was a one-time thing, or if it's something...

    For anyone who didn't catch it, Jennings Osborne, donator of the "Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights" display at Disney's Hollywood Studios, was featured tonight on Man vs. Food: Carnivore Chronicles on Travel Channel. Apparently, the Osborne Family hosts a city-wide BBQ at which they...

    UK Fish Shop

    I hadn't read anything about this (and I couldn't find any past info through searching), but during my recent trip, I noticed that the Fish Shop sign at the UK no longer makes mention of "Harry Ramsden's". Fortunately (or unfortunately), I often take a lot of pictures from the same vantage...

    Test Track LED ride vehicle headlights

    I know that Martin mentioned LED headlights on 1-2 vehicles back at the beginning of the month. Just an update: we rode Tues. of this week and every vehicle that I saw is currently equipped with them. In general, everything is going to LED at WDW!

    Past Park Hours?

    Is there somewhere on wdwmagic where I can find past park hours? I searched around on the main info page and I can only find future hours. I'm trying to plan a trip for Dec. of 2010 and was hoping to base our estimated hours off of what the actual hours were for 2009. If nothing else, we went...

    pwned by Spirit

    Well, we had a nice little vacation planned, for a little something called a WEDDING...well, I guess my story's not that bad... Anyway, we had flights through Spirit (first mistake, right!?) to arrive at 11:55a.m. on a Sat. and to leave at 6:40p.m. on the following Sat. As it turns out, we got...

    Epcot "Recruitment Center" & Blueprint Map (Kim Possible?)

    OK, I admit that I haven't been following the Kim Possible adventure - whatever it's officially called - and I'm wondering if this is part of it or what? As we stopped to take some pictures of the beautiful Poinsettias near the junction of Future World and World Showcase the week of...

    Illuminations Dessert Reception? How?

    Hi, so I've gone through the preliminary steps of reserving our Wedding for 2009. We will be doing an "Escape Wedding" (18 guests or fewer), for several reasons including the fact that we'd like to keep the ceremony end of things small and simple. However, we will be hosting additional friends...

    180day-Whatever & Candlelight Packages - Sold Out??

    OK, so I had a weird experience this morning. According to my PS Calculator, today was my 180day mark for the day of our arrival (Dec. 20). So I called to make ADR's for Dec. 20 and they told me that it's possible to make reservations for dates through the end of Dec. 2008. What's up with...
