    EZ Pass officially accepted on all Florida toll roads

    Just a heads up, as of late last week, EZ Pass is accepted on all Florida toll roads. Previously it was only accepted on Orlando area toll roads managed by the Central Florida Expressway Authority. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article251748223.html

    M1 vs Intel Macbook Pro - for a graphic designer

    That's the question. I tend to go through PC laptops every 2 years, but 5-10 years for my Macs. If you had to pick an M1 or an Intel Macbook Pro as a graphic designer, which would you take?

    Sharing a tip for roadtrippers to WDW - Uni toll transponder

    My wife and I are presently planning a road trip from Florida to the Northeast, but I know many do it the other way. We have a Sunpass, which works in Florida and a few southern states, but nowhere else. Well, 5 minutes of research later, and we found out about Uni. It's the only toll...

    Fort Wilderness Questions

    So, my wife and I have been considering a long weekend in Ft Wilderness using the smallest campsite, and we're curious as to 1- What's the restroom and shower situation there in COVID times? Are the comfort stations being cleaned more often, and 2- Would there be issues showing up with an SUV...

    The effect of J-1 visa issuance suspension and World Showcase CM's

    Just my curiosity, but since the Trump administration has suspended issuance of J-1 visas, which are one of the two main kinds of visas issued to World Showcase CM's (the other being Q-1), I'm curious what kind of long-term effect this may have on the parks - specifically Epcot - returning to a...

    Brightline making plans to stop at Walt Disney World

    https://www.local10.com/travel/brightline-making-plans-to-stop-at-walt-disney-world As a resident of South Florida, I can't wait for this to happen. This will make more regular visits to WDW a reality, and by eliminating the need to drive, it could even make day trips a possibility.

    New car time

    So, back stories. I have ankle problems. More with my left than right ankle.. They're hereditary, and no amount of physical therapy or exercise will make them go away. I still walk, I still exercise, and I have mostly good days. This means that on a bad commute, I end up limping into my...

    DIY vs Dealer vs Independent Mechanic (a story about last weekend's trip to WDW)

    Just some food for though... on our last drive up to WDW, we experienced car trouble on our beater CR-V. It's an 03 CR-V with 123k miles (we bought it at 118k miles) that we picked up for $2500 in June, and have been using it for errands around town when we've needed a larger car, and for road...

    Heads up to Sunpass Users - Check Your Statements!

    This is an FYI, since I know there are many regular visitors who own their own Sunpass transponders to use when in WDW. The state has privatized parts of Sunpass and they went with the worst possible company: Conduent. They have a bad reputation when other states have privatized their toll...

    What would it cost to eat everything at Epcot food fest?

    If you ordered one of every solid food item offered at the 2016 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the total would come to $450.37. If you wanted every beverage as well, add $823.96. All together, you’re looking at a grand total of $1,274.33 and one big belly ache/hangover combo...

    Will you get rehired? Probably not - my story

    I was termed in 2003. I - as a character performer - was attacked by a guest, defended myself, and the guest complained. A few CM's that didn't like me wrote out false witness statements, Disney sided with the guest, never reviewed surveillance camera footage ("it's not used for those...

    Beating no rehire

    I know that it used to be a matter of applying for any role in casting, and then going through a rehire panel. What's the current process? Or is it now no-rehire = no-rehire forever?

    Another rehire thread.

    Here's mine. I was a CM. Then 12 and a half years ago I got termed, with no rehire. Situation was - a guest attacked me, and I defended myself. They complained, and I got termed. This seems like something that Disney would have already purged from its systems. What are the odds that they'll...
