    Random Observation: Walking Behavior Past vs Today

    We walk from Contemporary to MK but then back to Contemporary we either monorail if line is short or walk if line is long. At Grand Floridian we monorail to MK and usually only walk back. Boat would be first choice but we'd need to fold the stroller and that's a pain with ask the stuff...

    Trail's End or Whispering Canyon for Breakfast

    Right, Disney boats from MK makes the transportation the same and, if having the time, is the best recommendation. I love boat transportation. OP should also know that busses from MK are also an option, albeit less enjoyable, imo. At Wilderness Lodge you'd be dropped off steps from the lobby...

    Trail's End or Whispering Canyon for Breakfast

    I like both and prefer Trails End but it can be a pain in the butt to get to. You'll either need to take a boat from MK or the Bay Lake boat loop (if running) OR likely an internal bus at Fort Wilderness if you bus or drive there. I'm unsure if ride shares drop off at front of Fort Wilderness or...

    Happily Ever After vs. Enchantment

    I haven't seen Enchantment in person yet so that doesn't help visuals, but just from narrative and songs and evoked emotions I prefer HEA. HEA talks about bravery, looking inside our hearts to find who we are meant to be (implying we find different things, are different people, etc), and being...

    MagicBand+ announced

    What was the lifespan of the most recent magic band, considering no battery change? I'm curious because, in theory, these new ones could last multiple years with a rechargeable battery before needing replacement. It also feels like chasing for magic bands was a step toward this. There's no...

    News Disney Vacation Club Announces Expansion at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

    The one and two bedroom living area photo shows a Murphy bed so presumably that will also be in the original villa building studios, but the newly converted rooms will have two traditional beds? It's interesting to see different studio bed options, unless of course I'm wrong about Murphy beds in...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I'm curious how views are from spots not in front or behind center screen. Shows in World Showcase could be seen from any pavilion without feeling like there are significantly better spots (closer to Future World bridge and America pavilion, maybe. I'm worried that if watched from Norway or UK...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    Similarly, there were a few times I thought "this looks like a spot fireworks may have been cut to save money"

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    OK I'm apparently way in the minority but I thought the music was great in individual pieces but I agree with majority that it was very disjointed. It reminds me of a group PowerPoint project where everyone does a few slides but it doesn't come together smoothly. There was a video in the last...

    WDW As The Only Vacation Option: Why?

    We're DVC members and usually use our points because our oldest is 6 is we don't really want to drag kids around museums or national parks like we likely will they're older. For now Disney works well because we can go inti a bubble and it's easy for kids and parents to have a great time. When...

    DJ at MK exit

    Location for sure matters. For example, I've recognized multiple modern (within last 15 years) New Orleans bands and songs on Grand Avenue at Hollywood studios and it's worked well there. The same wouldn't work on Main Street. They're able to weave in "newer" stuff to Main Street but it's way...

    News New Crêperie restaurant coming to Epcot's France Pavilion as part of Ratatouille expansion

    Interior gives me a vibe of a gussied up / modernized La Madeline. While it looks welcoming it also looks dark and goes in the opposite direction away from "light and airy" that comes to mind when I think of crepes and creperies. That said I can understand that they may have wanted a different...

    News New Crêperie restaurant coming to Epcot's France Pavilion as part of Ratatouille expansion

    We'll see if word "buckwheat" makes it on the final menu. I'm imagining that the average Disney customer would be skeeved out reading buckwheat, if not already unsure about crepes to begin with.

    News Walt Disney World to resumes sales of Annual Passes September 8th

    I agree with this. They'd likely rather take the easy money sooner and pretty much guarantee returned trips than saying "no" and risk the guest changing plans to return. I remembered to renew my daughter today. At some point I'll need a pass for my son who turned three (and thus eligible for a...

    What is your favorite subtle detail from any attraction?

    Not my favorite but I'm curious why in Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh that Mr. Toad gives Owl the deed instead of any of the other characters. Is there some perception that one needs to "old enough" to be conveyed real estate interests that precludes Christopher Robin from taking the deed...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    There's a story in today's New Orleans newspaper that winks, nods, and all but confirms intentions for food changes specifically for DL where it makes sense. “I’ll also say this, especially at our Disneyland location, and especially in New Orleans Square, we have an opportunity to tell an...
