    Want to reuse Magicband

    It used to really simple to deny getting a new Magicband to reuse an old one. I bought a special Magicband this spring and want to reuse it for my upcoming Feb trip. The rest of my family needs Magicbands, though. I've scoured Google and these boards trying to figure out how to deny my new band...

    Grocery delivery to Universal resorts

    What grocery delivery service would you all recommend for Royal Pacific? I've tried doing some research and found a couple of options. But many of them (like Amazon and Publix) almost seemed like you had to sign up for a service and/or had a service fee. Or maybe I was reading it wrong. Are...

    Dining Plan and Character Meals

    Hey all! Quick question, as I have no idea how the DP works at Universal. I saw on a website that you can use the DP for character meals (I was researching the Marvel character meal specifically), but other info on the site wasn't jiving with Universal's site so I don't know how trustworthy it...

    Feeling Unprepared

    Has anyone ever felt unprepared for their upcoming trip? We have 2 weeks left to go. And while I'm excited, the feeling of being unprepared, mentally and otherwise, is overshadowing everything else. I'm not sure what to do about it. I'm trying to listen to park music. Any other suggestions? I'm...

    Late February or early March?

    I'm planning a short (or rather long weekend) trip for me, my husband, my best friend and her boyfriend. We're going to do a couple days in Universal and one day in Epcot. But my dilemma is when to go. None of us have kids and our work schedules are flexible, so that's not an issue. It's between...

    Hogwarts Express

    My apologies if this has already been posted about before. I tried searching for it, but didn't want to go through pages and pages of forum posts to find it. We're planning our first visit to Universal Studios and we're not sure which ticket to get. I wasn't planning on getting park-to-park...

    Ears of Experience

    I tried searching the site to see if this had been talked about, but couldn't find anything. Has anyone ever had any experiences with Ears of Experience trip planning? Either planning your trip through them, or working as an agent? I'm intrigued about becoming an agent, but wanted some more info...

    Universal First-Timer

    So my husband and I are planning to visit WDW the first full week of September next year. We're going to fly down and use the Disney bus to our hotel. So we will be without a car. But we're wanting to visit Universal (the first time for both of us) for 2 days. We just have no idea what would be...

    Confused by new-fangled technology

    Hello all! Been a LONG time since I posted here (although I do keep a check on the latest happenings at WDW). Sadly, I have not been to WDW since 2008. But my husband and I are planning on going next fall. SO cannot wait! It will be our first visit together as a couple! The more I hear about the...

    Need help finding Beanies!

    I'm desperately trying to replace some retired Disney beanies.... In a nutshell, I came across some of my ALL TIME FAVORITE beanies last night...covered in mold. I'm simply heartbroken about it. I decided it just wasn't worth the hassle of trying to save them, only to probably just throw them...

    ATTN Dog Lovers...need advice!

    I'm looking into getting a dog in the near future. I've been wanting one for quite some time now. I'm just not sure what breed is best for me. I've had TONS of cats in my life, but only 1 dog - an Alaskan Malamute (I was 18 when she died at the age of 17, so she and I pretty much grew up...

    Suggestions for a hotel in Chicago

    I'm taking a little trip to Chicago for Labor Day weekend. I haven't been to the city since I was about....3ish, I guess. My boyfriend has stayed at least twice at the Howard Johnson, so that's probably where we'll stay. But it got a couple of bad reviews, and I just wanted to look for some...

    Which Credit Card is Best?

    Hello all! I'm making the decision to cancel my current credit card (Captial One Visa) and change to a different company. So I'm wondering if you all had any suggestions on which one to go with? I probably need to stick with MasterCard or Visa, but definitely not Capital One. Which card have...

    Digital Camera Woes...

    Over the weekend, I was using my sister's Canon Digital Rebel G. She hadn't told me anything about it, and it had been a loooong while since I had used it. While she was out, I decided to check her memory cards to see how much space was left on them. Well, stupid me couldn't remember how to put...

    A Very Scary Christmas - help!

    Several years ago I found out about a cd called "A Scary Little Christmas" by Kris Knight. There used to be a link to where you could purchase it on doombuggies.com. But I can't find the link anymore. In fact, I can't find the cd at all on google or ebay. Does anyone know where I can find this...

    Good VHS or bad DVD?

    I've become incredibly obsessed with Dan Fogelberg since this past summer, and especially in the past two or three weeks. He's absolutely AMAZING! I'd KILL to see him live, except he won't be touring until further notice (he's been ill with cancer). I decided to do a search to see if he had come...

    There's just no place like home

    My sister and I moved into a townhouse this past Sat. so we're now about 40 min. from home. I'm 20, she's 24; it's the first time living away from home for the both of us. She seems to be dealing with it quite well...I, on the otherhand, have been terribly homesick since. I cried all day Sunday...

    Auto Opinions Needed

    I have a rather difficult choice ahead of me. My parents leased a new Toyota Camry in 2000 for 5 years. During that time, I turned 16 and was needing a car once I graduated high school and my mom decided she wanted a van, so the Camry went to me. My mom still paid for the Camry (seeing as I...

    Most Annoying Cliche

    Is there a cliche that people around you insist on using but makes you want to hit your head on something? Well, this is where you can get it off your chest. The cliche that annoys me most is "...as all get out". For example, my co-worker said the other night "...and he's as handsome as all...
