    Permanent Ralph Breaks The Internet Family Play Zone Debuts at Epcot

    I only hope we never lose sight of one thing — that it was all leading to a lame playground.

    Are you a 'waver'?

    I wave lots. Why not? Giving waves costs nothing.

    Gravity Wheel Not Turning at Mission: SPACE

    So, what’s a rough estimate of how much $ it would cost to fix the gravity wheel?

    Daily food budget?

    This. At sit down, my DW and I usually split an appetizer and entree and each have drinks. This can be in in $50-60 total, so $25-30/person. We do the same for CS and sub a side for appetizer, for about $30 total. Add a snack, drink elsewhere during the day, and were at about $70/person/day...

    News Cuts to Citizens of Hollywood

    Are the cuts permanent? I certainly could be mistaken, but haven't their total numbers at any given time fluctuated a bit (seasonally?) over the years? While I don't know precisely how much the actors make, I can't image cutting some of them for budget reasons would amount to more than a...

    News Park attendance showing significant softness heading into the Fall 2018

    And this. My point is that what TP does is totally fine for their purpose - to make money selling books/app subscriptions - because they are providing estimates, not guarantees. And, of course, the near real time data available from multiple sources to everyone while in a park is of greater...

    News Liberty Square Riverboat closing for long refurb

    News Park attendance showing significant softness heading into the Fall 2018

    No, it's not even close to random, by definition. It's an entirely self-selected sample, doubly so. Selection bias issues with the sample by definition. It may be representative, though it's not clear what population it may be representative of. I'm not sure what the unit of analysis is in...

    News Tomorrowland love

    Credit where and when credit is due. Good job WDW! You did that reasonably quickly, as demo should be done.

    Do you use the Train at Magic Kingdom?

    I really enjoy it, but we don't ride it every time we go. Kind of depends on how crowded the park is and how long it takes to do our higher priority attractions. Old FP, we rode it every trip; FP+, fewer than half our trips now.

    News PHOTOS - Prince Charming Regal Carrousel behind scrims for refurbishment

    I remember the painting occurring in plain view on Main Street as well, and liked it. Thought it sort of fit on MS since that's how turn of the century shop owners would have done it in the real world. Very glad that upkeep is happening. But it seems like WDW is in a race with my local road...

    Telecommuting or working remotely while at Disney Saratoga Springs.

    What you plan is totally doable. I’ve worked at the hotels quite a bit for several hours at a time, though not all day for an entire vacation. Lots of places to park with a laptop - pool, lounge, outdoor counter service restaurant seating, lobby, interior nooks, conference facility public...

    Switching Resort Hotels - Logistics

    I’ve done this many times about all the different ways one could do it. Each way is easy and doable; each have their pros/cons. Biggest challenge was when I had refrigerated items that needed to switch hotels, too (e.g., food, drink, medicine). Bell services had refrigerators for this purpose...

    News Swan and Dolphin Tower Expansion - The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve

    Agreed. Based on the publicly available artist renderings, the hotel easily could be in any mid-sized or larger city nearly anywhere on the globe. Nothing on the exterior appears to make it an instantly uniquely WDW or even Disney property.

    News Epcot's Kringla Bakeri og Kafe closing for major refurbishment in February

    Thanks for the info. Do you know how the traffic flow pattern was altered for Roost and the rest of the shops there? Does it work well?

    News Epcot's Kringla Bakeri og Kafe closing for major refurbishment in February

    Looks like a nice improvement - better functionality and retained the original aesthetic. Should help with crowd flow and improve the user experience. So, glad to see they retained the lovely outside seating area. Anyone know what backstage space was “lost” inside the building to accomplish...
