    Second Gate at HKDL?

    All the new Park rumours at the moment (3rd parks in Paris and California) are around Disney using the New brands they have bought recently I would not be surprised if we a see a park somewhere in the world and possible Hong Kong with no Disney Characters at all but could be a movie park with...

    Pepsi return to Disney with Shanghai deal

    A very interesting development in Shanghai with a deal to sell Pepsi rather than Coke in the park, looks like another reason to visit Shanghai as I much prefer Pepsi! http://disneyandmore.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/pepsi-cola-signs-with-disney-exclusive.html

    I think in 2014 Pepsi should sponsor the 50th anniversary of its a small world opening at the world fair as they did when it opened and they can sell it in the shop outside!

    First Trip to Disneyland Info

    If you like them, the halloween party at DL is a lot of fun with a parade, special fireworks show and loads of candy and villians to meet. The tickets are sold just for the party and they let you into park upto 3 hours before it starts which is around 7pm so you can get in at 4pm. The staff...

    transportation to other theme parks

    The best way I have found to get around without a car if you are staying in Anaheim is to use Grayline Tours http://tours.coachamerica.com/graylineanaheim/toursAna.cfm they offer coach trips with entry included and pick you up from your hotel and take you to the depot to get on your tour bus.

    Currency Cards versus Traveller's Cheques

    I have not used the prepaid cards before but on my last visit in june we took Amex travellers cheques to WDW and it was so easy to use them. We stayed at the Saratoga Springs and were able to cash them with no fee at reception and they can be used as cash in all the shops to pay for items and...

    Uk & Ireland Fans Rejoice!!!

    We booked with Travel City Direct who went bust a few years ago but got bought by Virgin and for our trip in June to Saratoga Springs going via Manchester they were £600 cheaper and use the same Virgin airline flights looks like Virgin holidays are adding on some extra costs for the brand name...

    Is There ANYTHING you Just Don't Like About Disney?

    My main issue would be the poor state of Downtown it feels like they dont know what to with it or dont want to spend money on it. Having been to Disneyland for the last couple of years where D/T has a real buzz to it I feel WDW could do with something to rejuvinate it.

    Better time of year for WDW visit

    Another consideration for September is do you like the Halloween decorations or even the parties, this is always one of our favourite times to visit the disney parks and get some trick or treating fun.

    Will DHS attract a DCA style 'reboot'???

    I think one of the big factors for TDO will be how much merchandise sales are generated by cars land in DCA at the moment no one jumps of the back lot tour at WDW demanding a toy tram! It is also one of Disneys biggest young boys franchises and they are keen to develope a male success to rival...

    Would it be in Disney's best interest to clone Toy Story Mania right next door?

    An idea that might work would be to use a possible new version of the ride based on Buzz light year, according to the Disney and more blog there are plans to make the Buzz Astro Blaster at the new Shanghai park using TSM technology rather than the usual versions at other parks. This would at...

    1st timer would love more info please.

    Another consideration you should look at is what operating hours are available often in off seasons the parks can close at 6 or 7pm and there is often no fire works shows unless its a special event eg we went in March last year luckily it was over St Patricks day and they had a special fireworks...

    June 2012!

    Thanks for the advice Billy6 we like to be in parks early so sounds like your advice will work well for us, I have learned always to take poncho's with us to Florida especially in September as we often get rain storms of the hurricanes at that time of year. You mention SWW as being very crowded...
