    Rentals

    National had the best rate for July; I've been impressed with them both in the US and internationally. Get set up for the emerald club now and it's a very easy rental experience.

    Delux moderate or Value? Help

    The Epcot area Deluxes are very nice - being able to walk to two park is a serious luxury. with park hopper back it means dinner in Epcot is easier. If that's not a big deal, 5 nights at Pop - easy hop onto the Skyovens and I like the somewhat small but very efficient rooms. If GF is on the...

    Parks are Taking a Back Seat?

    Those companies only don't record profits because they have good tax teams - they make money hand over fist. Disney + will likely always be run as a break-even or at a loss on paper, but it is the heart of the company's growth strategy for the future - it makes money. Lots of money.

    Am I going to hate Pop Century?

    Pop really surprised us in October. We were expecting to grin and bear it - we're Moderate and Deluxe guests until this trip - but honestly, it's a great place. The rooms are more cruise line style - compact, but well organized. Not huge, but for 2 adults and a 8 and 12 year old, still good...

    News Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue replacing Liberty Inn

    As a Memphian, I can assure you that ain;t no one missing anything there:) I kid. Somewhat. Nah, it won't be BBQ, but should still be better than generic burgers, and smoked chicken can be done en masse and still quite good.

    Noob Mistakes You Made During Your First WDW Visit

    Our first trips was being so worried about money we didn't have any table service meals, even with my mom and our 2.5 year old. Sometimes you need to sit and let people bring you refills:)

    Help an overwhelmed dad out

    Queen beds always win - and I'd go with a regular POP room - if you were going to upgrade, the AoA would be a better return, but not needed. Getting Gondolas is a good, as choices are always good. Dedicated busses are also very nice. For the cost of upgrading to a preferred room, upgrade a meal...

    Restaurants for the non-Disneyphile/Foodie

    Yachtsman is definitely worth a look, if yall are into steak, anyway:), Cali Grill is great and I think you made the right choice with Jiko - that places is fantastic.

    What is one thing you wish you could have done differently

    Stayed at the Dolphin. Never again.

    What are the best Resort TS restaurants?

    Boma is so worth it - both for the food(and there's a wide enough variety that everyone will find something), the theming, and the chance to wander the hotel, check out the lobby and savannah. It's an amazing resort and well worth a trip.

    Are you here right now? Port Orleans FQ

    Definitely. The sound of crickets as you walk through the grounds at night, the carriages tromping along - it's a peaceful antidote to a loud day. The only reason we've stayed elsewhere is distance; finding rooms at Dolphin the same rate as POFQ and not having to get on a bus won us over, but...

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    That actually excites me - the Sorcerer's workshop was freaking cool, and my family and i spent an afternoon in that area having a blast. Epcot needs experiential things far more than rides.

    Impressed by Universal

    The Royal Pacific was a great hotel for us - was very happy except for the restaurant, which being mostly empty seemed to give up. A great pool, good entertainment poolside, nice rooms, great staff otherwise. Potterland is brilliant - really great, just too small:) Where universal falls off...

    Leaving a young child out of a Disney trip

    Plan for a stroller - not everyday, but some days. Look at the 5 person rooms at Port Orleans and Caribbean, a little tight, but doable, and far cheaper than 2 rooms or a Art of Animation Suite. 6...6 is a really good age to appreciate a lot of what Disney has, really magic, and so long as you...

    News Whirlpool brand is the Official Kitchen and Laundry Appliance of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort

    Y'all. It ain't like there haven't been weirder sponsorships - this one is positively old-school Disneyland. I mean, it's not like riding Spaceship Earth made me rush out and buy a facilities automation system...

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    I'm all in favor of inefficiency - that's honestly the best thing about TSI, that it IS inefficient. I wish they would open up Aunt Polly's and make that a real rest spot - but the Fort, the Cave, and the bridge are unique. DCA's Redwood Creek is also magic in that way, forget the rides, MK...

    Wilderness Lodge Refurbishment

    Gotta say that i MUCH preferred the updated CBR rooms - it would have been nice to have a bit more theming, but it got closer to the 'Budget Poly' feel that the resort is trying for than the old, garish ones.

    Elephants?

    The caring for giants tour is definitely worth the $30 - While I'm not a fan of add-on charges to an expensive trip, that one and the behind the seeds tour are reasonably priced but keep the numbers manageable - my son and wife loved their tour.
