    This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you click on the fialshows link, a tsunami of rip off material appears. Happy viewing.

    Walt Disney World before the internet.

    Hi all, my first ever trip to WDW was back in September 1989. From memory, I recall going there reasonably ignorant to what was on offer across all of Orlando as there was no internet for another 5 years. My holiday brochure was my only guide. For those old enough, how did you plan for WDW...

    Volcano Bay or Aquatica? Islands of Adventure or Seaworld?

    Hi all, l’m planning a trip to Orlando in September 2022. WDW will feature well in the trip. My teenage sons like white knuckle roller coasters but my wife prefers flat rides. The boys like exciting water slides but my wife prefers to sunbathe. So with this in mind, if I had to pick one...

    Describe your first trip to WDW. How old were you? What year was it?

    As a 19 year old, my first trip was in Sept 1989. Flying in from the UK, a 2 week trip was the only option. We bought a 5 day WDW pass. MGM studios had been open for 3 months but no Universal. We also did Seaworld which at the time had no rides, just animal exhibits. Wet n Wild, Boardwalk and...

    When Did WDW Become An Extended Vacation Destination?

    We weren’t in downtown. We stayed at the Twin Towers (now the Doubletree) opposite Universal. We did 5 days at WDW, 2 at WnW, 1 at SW, 1 at B&B 1 at Tampa and 3 shopping and poolside. So quite busy for 1989.

    When Did WDW Become An Extended Vacation Destination?

    Our group were 19, 20 & 21 years of age so we didn't hire a car except for 1 day to Tampa. The shuttle's to the parks were fine and quite frequent. I've hired a car in all of the other visits.

    Rideless World Showcase Pavillions

    We all know that Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco & The UK don't have either rides or a theater. So if they were scheduled to have 1 attraction installed, what would you choose? Would it be character based such as Snow White at Germany or Mary Poppins at the UK, or would it be a theater...

    Empty Attraction Experiences

    Not in WDW but at Disneyland Paris we visited on a Monday in September. The entire park was almost empty. We were invited to stay on Space Mountain 3 times but SM in DLP is a totally different beast to that in MK so twice was enough.

    Disney Paris vs WDW/DL

    Very good comments on this topic. I would say if you’re looking for a 2 week summer vacation, then WDW is probably the better option. Our family recently spent a week in Paris and stayed in a hotel right on the RER A line which took us straight into DLP. However, 7 days is far too long to...

    Best value at Universal?

    Hi all, For my next trip, I’m thinking of doing a week at WDW (Hotel & parks) and a few days outside doing Universal; but I’ve not been there for a few years. My question is what’s the best value ticket when visiting Universal? Is it a multi day pass offering all 3 parks? Or is it worth...

    What’s the best and worst ride in WDW?

    The attached article is an interesting read. It ranks all 55 WDW rides from worst to best. Do you agree? https://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/disney-vacations/best-worst-disney-world-rides

    Timing of fast passes at Magic Kingdom.

    What time of the day do you book your fast passes? We normally go for mid afternoon when the park is at peak attendance. And we usually go for Space Mountain, 7DMT & usually Splash Mountain. The main benefit, is that we can have a crack at the west side of the park in the morning followed by...

    Annual Pass worth ?

    Can I ask, when driving from DC to Orlando, how long is the journey and where do you stop? Thanks 👍🏻

    What is something you ALWAYS do in Magic Kingdom?

    We tend to follow an similar pattern early on. Arrive about 20 mins before opening. Bear left to BTM & Splash. Loop round to POTC & Jungle Boats. Then short cut through to Haunted Mansion. Usually these are done without too many lines as the hoardes are still arriving. Then a time-out at...

    A day in Magic Kingdom without rides.

    Every now and then, I read comments such as ‘You can enjoy the Magic Kingdom without doing any rides’. So here’s a challenge for everyone. Can you suggest itinerary for a day at MK with no rides? The best one gets two thumbs up. ;)

    Extreme Heat or Extreme Cold?

    Not WDW but I did Disneyland Paris a few December’s ago, where we were treated to 3 days of freezing fog. We were prepared and dressed for the weather and we found it pleasantly different. Luckily, it didn’t rain.

    Monorail to Animal Kingdom?

    Do you think that WDW monorail would ever extend to the Animal Kingdom? If so, what would the cost of installation be?

    Memories of your first visit to WDW.

    What was your main memory (or couple) from your first visit to WDW? Mine was back in 1989 on the hotel bus approaching EPCOT and feeling really excited as Spaceship Earth got closer. Also, I remember how everything was incredibly clean and well run compared to UK theme parks at the time.
