    Post a picture of your "Room" at Fort Wilderness.

    Since Fort Wilderness is considered a "Moderate Resort", maybe on the cabins, post a picture of what you stay in while at the Fort. Yes, people stay in tents and that's wonderful! There is much more there. Based on the "What resort do you think you'd never stay at" thread I think there may be a...

    What was it like when you first went to Disney World?

    Some of us, me included do a lot of ******** about what WDW is now and all the problems we find with it. There was a thread a bit ago on value for the price. I posted but was thinking as the thread got longer that for me at least value was the wrong word. More what do you get out of it, and is...

    Lots of cool stuff in here! I like the resort and park photos the most.

    I've been looking through these threads and am pretty impressed with a lot of what I see. So how do you go about your photography? What equipment do you use? How long have you been into photography? I've had a few trips where I was in it just for the opportunity to shoot. I walked around my...

What were you staying in, tent, Class A, B, C........ trailer, 5er or one of the cabins. What did you do on your trip, parks all day? No parks and just...

    Rock Hunting! (Where's my brick?)

    Does anyone else have a paver brick? These are the personalized bricks they used to pave the walkways leading to the Magic Kingdom entrance. Every trip we have to go "rock hunting" and find our bricks. It's a "thing" for us. Even knowing where they are it takes us a while to run it down. Anybody...

    Trip Report Christmas 2018

    So I've belonged to this forum for many years but haven't been to Disney since 2012. I was reading up on what had changed, etc. So I'll throw this up as a short description of my first trip to Ft. Wilderness since 1976, and the first trip for us since 2012. We stayed at Ft. Wilderness Dec...

    Weather app that's pretty good

    Being something of a weather nerd I was always looking for a good app. I have been using Fox 13 Skytower for about 3 years now. They are local out of Tampa here, but you can set any location as "home" and add others as needed or desired. Florida weather changes every 5 minutes so it's nice to...

    Why buy water?

    I know this topic gets brought up three times a day, but I figured I'd post this tip as it's own. We know water bottles cost a fortune if you buy them in the park, so they should be avoided. I have seen posts telling folks to get free ice water at counter service. Yup, it's great but doesn't do...

    Fort Wilderness

SoI was kind of searching around in here but couldn't find a specific location where the threads might be, like the Hotels, Dining, Resorts, etc. I searched but...

    Typhoon Lagoon Surf Lessons!

    I hope this is the right place to post this. I had asked about the surf lessons at Typhoon Lagoon and since we've come back from it, I decided to post a report. I booked the lessons back in February when we booked the Disney trip. I had 2 16 year old girls that wanted to learn how to surf and I...

    I have never used a dining plan

    I have never used a dining plan. Since the beginning when they first became available, we have run the numbers and determined that they were just not cost effective for us. We have never to my knowledge gone on our vacation during the times when the meal plan was free, but since there is...

    Poly quiet pool?

    We had some great updates and pictures on the quiet pool refurb at the Polynesian. When I saw that the Poly feature pool was going to be closed for a couple of days for refurb, it made me think. Does anyone know if the quiet pool was just cleaned up and given a face lift, or did they fill in the...

    Old Key West regulars please

    We're going next month and I want to pack laundry detergent for use down there. Last time I stayed at OKW was May of 08. At the time, High Efficiency (HE) washing machines weren't that popular yet, The are now. Since they take different detergent I don't want to bring the wrong stuff. We use HE...

    Typhoon Lagoon Surf Lessons

    I've just booked surf lessons at Typhoon Lagoon for my daughter and her friend. Has anyone ever done them? They look like a lot of fun if for nothing else having the wave pool all to yourself for two hours! They only down side I can see is that they start at 5:45am. Don't know how difficult it's...

    Anyone been to the Holy Land Experience?

    My coworker wants to visit and would like to have some first hand information if anyone has ever been there. Being a heathen myself, I have no first hand knowledge. The best I could do for her was hang the camera out the window and snap pictures at 65 MPH. So please, if any of you have ever...

    Club Level?

    I first heard the term last year when we were at the Poly. I've read the propaganda on the Disney site, and have some vague idea, but what exactly is "Club Level"? Are they physically located in different buildings or locations than the "normal" rooms? Are the rooms any different? What is...

    W'swataaa?

    What's With All The Acronyms And Abbreviations? I know that every forum has it's rhythm and reasons for doing things, and being a new guy here I figure it will take a bit to understand how things are done, but I really don't get why all the abbreviations and acronyms. Some of them make sense...

    Adr?

    I guess that means advanced dinner reservations? In years past, we have tried to make reservations, but Disney called them "priority seating". They weren't reservations per se, but it kinda sorta put you on a list. Excepting of course charachter dining which you actually did make a real live...

    Suggestion if I may

    To the mods/admins. I'm on the staff of a guitar forum. While I moderate the entire forum, there are specific areas that the staff are assigned to and are kind of responsible for. Several of my areas involve beginner questions. We see the same questions over and over again. While our members and...

    MIA from WDW?

    Two items that I was kind of thinking of that I miss from the "old days". The first being the original "Mickey Bar". I'm not really an ice cream guy, but those old Mickey Bars were made out of Dove chocolate. They were awesome! Now it's just a ho hum nestle bar (I think). I wonder why they...
