    Are there NO Florida resident hotel rates for WDW in October?

    I want to make sure I am seeing this right. I see no Florida resident rates for WDW in October. Researching for a resident friend who isn’t a regular, but I was surprised not to see anything. They are hoping to go at least part of the last week of October. Also, does Universal have Florida...

    Any update on HoP update for new president (and is it affected by this week's events)?

    This is not a political thread. Please keep political opinions out of it. I am simply asking two things: 1. Is there any news on closing and adding Biden? I would also like to know if they know yet whether he will speak and if the show will be rethemed "Hamilton"-style as rumored...

    Disney pulls Black Panther from local theatres. Anyone know why?

    Our local drive-in scheduled to show Black Panther this weekend in memory of Chadwick Boseman, with a portion of proceeds to benefit colon cancer research; but Disney pulled the plug today on theatrical exhibition of the film anywhere, according to the drive-in and the news. I can’t understand...

    Using time at home to catch up on classics... and just wow at what they were able to do

    I am late to the Disney+ party, but I have had time at home (not able to work due to Coronavirus restrictions for our office -- and without company laptops not able to do much) and decided to peruse it and YouTube. Anyhow, I wanted to say that I just watched two landmark shorts on Disney+ that...

    Ja’Net DuBois, star of “Good Times” and composer/singer of “The Jeffersons” theme song, dead at 74

    https://www.wric.com/entertainment-news/janet-dubois-star-of-good-times-dead-at-74/ She was truly underrated. She both wrote and sang “Movin’ on Up” (“Jeffersons” theme) while starring as Willona on “Good Times.” Both had huge impacts, but I bet you now have her singing that theme song in your...

    A Valentine's Day idea for helping others

    I was talking to a teenager from church last night who is not dating anyone this year, and the thought came to me: wouldn't it be nice to go to the nursing home on Valentine's Day and give out roses to the ladies there who had lost their husbands? So, we decided that we are going to that. I...

    Increasing use of "$" after the numerals in money....

    Is anyone else noticing more and more people online putting the dollar sign AFTER the numbers when trying to express a cost or price? I first saw it with some young people I know. But I am seeing it more and more online. When I see "100$" for "$100," it really makes we wonder if anyone has...

    "Grand Ole Opry" star Bill Anderson has written a new "Christmas" song and done a video for it. It celebrates our favorite late night restaurant (even right outside of WDW), and it has some cameos, too. Tanya Tucker (a "classic" country star that is riding high now with a new Grammy...

    What TV house would you want to live in?

    With all of the hoopla last month over the HGTV renovation of the "Brady Bunch" house, I thought it would be fun to ask which TV house would you actually consider living in, if it were real? I have to admit that the Brady house would be fun, but my all-time favorite "TV house" is the one from...

    "The Peanut Butter Falcon" is a great movie

    Just saying. Saw it this weekend, and loved it. A great road picture. Awesome story also that reminds us all of the humanity and dignity that we all share -- and even amid the fact that we are all also sinners with our own faults. Nice performance also by Shia Lebeouf as a modern day...

    Fantastic "Country Music" doc from Ken Burns started Sunday on PBS, continues this week and next

    Anyone see NBC's Elvis anniversary special to his '68 comeback show?

    I wondered what you all thought of Sunday night's NBC special commemorating the 50th anniversary of the ‘68 comeback special. I liked most of what they did. I thought recreating the setting of the boxing ring approach worked really well. I also liked most of the performances. They have...
