    I like My Disney Experience but definitely want to vent about fast passes. Anyone with me?

    In the interest of not just out right complaining about the fast pass system I wanted to at least give some praise to the MDE app. Pros: Wait Times - After buying apps previously to monitor crowds/lines, I really do think MDE is good as it can get with giving line wait times Food: Again no real...

    Ticket buying question

    I'll start by saying hindsight is 20/20. Even before we went on our trip in January word was spreading that Non-expire tickets were going away and we should have bit the bullet and bought a block of days... Which we didn't. Now with deciding to go back in Sept/Oct for a super short just us...

    Changes you make if put in charge of WDW...

    Before we begin take this with a healthy dose of good humor. Also realize that there are no wrong answers, everyone is right with their own opinion and a special little Frozen snowflake... Unless you hate Frozen. First and foremost thank you powers that be for putting me in charge of policy...
