    Is 2022 planning possible?

    Long-time member, not posted for a while. But when I needed to ask some unanswerable questions and wanted some informed speculation, there was only one place to go! I've been trying to plan a trip from the UK for a while (to be first for 12yr old, and 6yr old), and I think we would all agree...

    International Shipping Advice

    Hi All; Been a member for many years, but haven't posted much recently. I was disappointed to hear about the Around the World brick removal. My grandparents had one, and are no longer with us, so I was keen to get a replica. I sent an email and was given a code, but on trying to order, I've...

    UK/US Free Dining questions

    Just hoping a resident expert can help explain or clarify something for me? I understand the release of dates and availability varies between free dining being offered in the US and the UK. However, is it correct that bookings from the US receive a free dining plan in Value resorts, whereas UK...

    Drug Issues

    Does anybody know where I can access a list of drugs/substances that are allowed in the US? I have IBS and take a variety of supplements and understand that in many countries, some substances and complementary medicines are permitted, whilst others are not. I do not want to arrive with any...

    Dining Plan and Menus

    Are there any limitations placed on what you can order using the dining plan? Are there certain items on the menu excluded? It just seems odd that I could order a burger, or a steak for twice the price, but they effectively cost the same (ie. 1 credit). Am I missing something?

    Doing something 'a little different'

    Travel Insurance

    Hi; I've never paid too much attention to travel insurance on previous trips. I have a premier account with my bank, which apparently includes free travel insurance, which I have always assumed is sufficient on previous trips. However, this time we are travelling with the little one...

    Anyone used Air France?

    I have always flown from the UK, usually with Virgin. However, in September I am flying to Paris, then flying Paris-Orlando with Air France in business class. We will have a toddler (18mth old) with us, so I'm a bit concerned about the flight. I've never flown Air France before, and wondered...

    Travelling with Toddler - Car Seats?

    We are staying at FQ in Sept with the little one. He will be about 19 months by then. We won't have a car, but would like to go other places; Universal, Sea World etc. In the past we have just used a taxi or Mears, but I'm wondering what we do now we have the little one, because he would need a...

    UK vs US Camera Prices

    Hi everybody; I'm off to WDW next weekend, and have decided I want a new digital camera. I don't want anything special or expensive, but was wondering whether I should buy one in the UK before travelling, or if it would be cheaper to wait and buy one in the US? I would probably only want to...

    Rare moment of sincerity

    I've just been packing my suitcase for my 2 week trip starting this weekend, and as I was sorting out what I would need, I started to think how self-absorbed I had become. Here I am worrying about how many shirts I would need, how many pairs of shoes I should pack etc. I couldn't help stopping...

    Both parks - one day?

    I don't want to do everything in IOA, but would like to do one or two rides and look around. Is it possible to see both parks in one day? If the crowd thing is an issue - I will be there during the first two weeks of May.

    Dining Plan Query

    I am going with family in early May. The flights, hotel and tickets have all been booked and paid for. I wasn't involved in planning the details. I have been looking at the dining plan, and it seems a good deal. My question is - if it wasn't part of the original booking, is there any way I...

    Not a bad day really

    I was getting a bit tired of hearing about today being an 'evil' day and emails telling me the world was going to end today (why do people send those emails? do they expect us to reply and say 'well done, you were right'?) I've actually had quite a good day. I got the results from the...

    WDW Monopoly

    This might apply to UK readers only, but any thoughts from anybody would be helpful. It is my girlfriends birthday in a couple of weeks and she won't tell me what she wants. I remember last time we were in WDW she wanted the Disney Monopoly game that comes in a tin. Does anybody know if this...
