    Pre-Trip The worlds on fire, let’s go to Disney World trip

    I first started stalking this page as my unofficial travel agent in 2010. Over the years I’ve ghosted it whenever a Disney trip felt too far from a reality. But, I’m back for a new trip. Cast: Your humble author: 41 year old male (7th trip as an adult + 3 as a kid) DW: 42 year old female (7th...

    Trip Report Its all fun and games 'til the 2nd emergency room visit

    This is a follow-up to the pre-trip report titled "We Were Due" This is my first attempt at a trip report. But if any trip ever deserved one, it was this one. As a sports junkie I will preview the coming posts as reflecting a trip that had 7 "wins" and 2 "losses". The wins- 1. Customer Service...

    Something different for our next trip.

    This September we are going back to the World. Our initial plan was for the five of us (me, DW, DS9, DD6, DD2) to do a 7/6 at POR. We have gone 3 times before, staying at AS Movie and Pop Century. Plans changed about two weeks ago when we decided to invite my brothers (25 year old twins). We...

    A night at DTD

    We have a 6 day - 5 night vacation coming up with 9 of us. I have one of the nights set aside for my sister, wife, and I to explore DTD. Mainly their bars. No one in our group has ever gone to DTD before. Any suggestions on how to attack it? Certain bars you all would recommend? My basic hope...

    Can I Double Dip the FP system?

    So, I selected my FP+ fastpasses today. I did not think this would be an option for this trip. Will I still get my KTTW? I ask because I would love to be able to double dip with paper FP along with the ones attached to my wrist band of doom.

    Swan/Dolphin and reward programs

    I am jumping back into the rat race and, of course, my mind is drifting over to WDW. I book my own travel with my new company and am able to take advantage of reward programs. Can rewards points be redeemed at the Dolphin and Swan? Has anyone here done so? Typically I have been a Choice...

    Unclog MK

    Reading all the post about crowd levels this time of year, my mind goes to the fact that the MK is larger than Manhattan Island. While I understand several factors make the two very different, I am wondering what could be done to make the, in my opinion at least, potentially 70k+ easily and...

    Hug them a little closer

    This site has brought me so much joy over the years. My family and I have had a terrible run lately but wdwmagic is always there. With the news from Connecticut, it puts your problems into there proper place. For the majority on this site whose love of Disney is tied to family, trips with mom...

    An epileptic in the group

    We are heading out in a few days and wondered about a few rides.. A little back ground before I mention specific rides. My wife has a seizure disorder. When medicated she has never had a breakthrough seizure. For her the triggers are certain foods ( diet coke, artificial sweeteners, chewing...

    Better Resort Breakfast

    I am going back and forth on the last ADR of our upcoming trip. I am down to Kona Cafe or Grand Floridian Cafe for breakfast. I have never eaten at either. The leader in the club house is Kona. In my mind I order the Big Kahuna, get my wife to order the Tonga Toast, and one of my kids ( 8,5, and...

    death by a thousand cuts or over-reaction

    I cannot begin to guess the amount of hours I have spent on this site over the last few years. I cannot begin to put a dollar amount on the tips I have culled from posts by hatter, Yoda, etc. But I have a tendency to see the sky is falling when maybe it is not. A trait I see with many, many...

    Yak and Yeti?

    rides & attractions with 9 month old

    I have gotten conflicting answers to what my 9 month old can and cannot partake in while in the world. What I am looking for is whether I have to use the kid swap option (poorly named for a destination that has to attract a huge number of deviants) or can they ride on our lap. Or option 3, yell...
