    Epcot New Years Global Countdown Fireworks Show?

    Has there been any word on whether we'll see the traditional Global Countdown NYE show at Epcot this year? With all the changes including no Holiday tag and the lack of any reference on the WDW website I grow concerned?

    Tripod Protocol at DLP?

    I'm headed back to DLP in late May and was wondering if anyone has an perspective on tripod protocols at DLP. Are they similar WDW, where if you are being respectful of others around you there will not be an issue, or is it stricter than that? The last time I was there was '93 and carrying a...
