    The New Ambassadors and Avatar

    So the Orlando Sentinel reported today that Meg Crofton announced the new WDW ambassadors this morning. I thought the most interesting part of her speech was her stating that the new ambassadors' reigns will include the completion of the Fantasyland expansion at Magic Kingdom and the "final...

    Hollywood Studios Refurbs

    The WDW website has listed the Backlot Tour, Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set, and the American Film Institute Showcase to all be closed for refurbishment from November 1 - November 16. Any ideas as to why all of these would be closed down at the same time?

    New Year's Eve Announcement?

    I am sure this adds up to nothing - but buried in this press release is a reference to a "special surprise announcement on New Year's Eve." I am assuming New Year's Eve 2011? Out of curiosity, does anyone know what this announcement is? http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/news/2012-planning/

    Hoop Dee Doo Revue Change Confirmation

    Well...I am in the unfortunate position of having to confirm the rumor that the music has changed in the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. I attended the show this evening, and not only is the opening song completely different (no more Hoop Dee Doo Polka), but the dinner call (Chow Down song) is no...

    Shania Twain at EPCOT?

    Does anyone know if Shania Twain is vacationing at WDW this weekend? I could have sworn that we saw her and her new husband at EPCOT yesterday afternoon with a VIP Guide. Didn't know if anyone had heard anything... :wave:

    River Country Question

    What was the River Country BBQ? I overheard someone mentioning it last weekend - and about how it used to be so much fun. Something like they "celebrated 4th of July every afternoon." I only went to River Country a couple times, and have no memory of this, but I may have been too young...

    Passholder Benefits Dwindling?

    Yesterday, a friend of mine and I were talking about being passholders - and the topic of dwindling benefits came up. The more I thought about it - the more I thought I should post and get some opinions. Our main discussion was about the Premium Annual Pass. It used to be that you got into...

    Underwhelming projects?

    I know that Disney can't always have spectacular, huge plans on the horizon - but is anyone else a little underwhelmed by what the next few years hold at WDW? It seems there are so many projects underway (FLE, Hyperion Wharf, new cruise ships, etc.), but personally, I don't see any of these...

    Spirit of Aloha Opinions?

    Has anyone done Spirit of Aloha recently? We have been debating whether to do this one or not. The reviews seem to be VERY mixed regarding the show. Keep in mind, we don't have children. :) Not that we are looking for a sophisticated dinner show, but just not TOO uncomfortably silly. With...

    World Showcase - Am I the only one?

    Am I the only one who thinks that the World Showcase is great the way it is? When talks about improvements or expansions are mentioned, adding countries seems to be at the top of a lot of people's list. I have to be honest, personally, I would think it would be a serious waste of money and...

    Put DisneyQuest out of it's misery?

    I went to DisneyQuest last weekend, and I have to say, it was sad. On a rainy day, it was not that busy, half of the machines didn't work, and for me personally, the technology is now dated and boring. I really wanted to have fun - I really did - but as it turned out, I ended up in the...

    Hoop-Dee-Doo increase?

    Just an FYI for everyone.... I haven't seen anything "official" yet, but it appears the price of the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue will be raised by a couple bucks after February's "holiday pricing". I guess not a biggie, but if anyone likes the show, may wanna check it out before it costs a little bit...

    Wild Africa Trek Report and Review

    We went on the Wild Africa Trek tour this morning (1/22) at 10am. Our tour group consisted of 12 people. We arrived at the Tusker House to get checked in at 9:40, and after signing some waivers, were immediately taken "backstage" to get fitted into a harness that you walk around in for about 2...

    Parades and Cutbacks?

    After reading through a lot of the comments about the new parade at HS, and how it is obviously a result of cut-backs, would it actually be a bad idea for Disney to discontinue parades in HS and AK? They would save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year (at least) by not having them, and at...

    Stitch's Great Move Out?

    Sorry if this has already been discussed at length on here (but I am new..ha) :wave: Does anyone have any idea if Stitch's Great Escape is on the radar for replacement? It has to be one of the worst attractions on property. (Maybe I would feel differently if I didn't grow up on Alien...
