    when was your 1st disney visit?

    July 1976. I had just turned 5 years old. I do not remember many things when I was 5, but I remember that entire trip very, very well. I remember thinking that the pirates in Pirates of the Caribbean and the Presidents in Hall of Presidents were real people. I also remember loving the...

    Does anyone still collect pins?

    I wouldn't say that my wife and I are pin collectors. If either one of us find one that we like, we buy it. That being said, I have a box of pins that we bought back in 1999 and 2000. Still wraped in their celophane (sp?) and in a box in the closet. I haven't touched them in 10 years. We...

    Southwest Seating Question

    Thanks. I do not know how long that has been in effect. I flew SW last October. I am disabled (not wheelchair bound) and I get to pre-board with my wife. People with small children are usually in the pre-board line with me. I always assumed that they boarded after we did. It makes more...

    How do you rate the Universal Halloween event?

    My wife and I will be attending our 8th HHN this October. We have gone every year since 2006. We are in the older category. Late 30's, early 40's and we love it! Yes, they do sell quite a bit of alcohol and some younger people can get obnoxious. However, I have noticed that the presence of...

    City Walk

    Magaritaville is a fun place. A great place for post theme park drinks and appetizers. The margarita spewing volcano is a sight to see as well.

    I recall reading or hearing somewhere that when JAWS first opened, a pair of Mickey ears were in the sharks mouth. They removed it because some thought it was too graphic. :hurl: I thought it was funny. :lol:

    should there be a waiting period for wheelchairs

    OK. Here's my opinion and an incident my family encountered. I just have to speak my mind on this one. You are standing in a long, hot line. A group of people with someone in a wheelchair gets access to the ride before you. Now think about it. How much time does this really add to your...

    Toy Story Mania Cameo in TS3

    Yes, those are the "critters" from Woody's Round Up. I just watched TS2 recently and just realized this myself. I had forgotten about them.

    creepy to ask characters for a hug?

    I am a 38 year old man and when I met Dug the dog from "Up" I reached out and I gave him a big ole bear hug. Then I got a hug from Russel too. Didn't even need to ask. I see adults interacting with characters like this all the time. Nothing wrong or creepy about it.

    Alfred Hitchcock: The Art of Making Movies

    My wife and I loved the Alfred Hitchcock attraction. Luckily, I video taped the performance back in 1991. We especially liked the "Rear Window" apartment building with the TV monitors in the windows. It was great. Gone but not forgotten. :cry:

    Does anyone know the story behind this Pluto incident?

    For what it's worth, here is what I heard. A few years ago when this video was originally posted, several people started posting on a message board who were witnesses to this event. It happened at Disneyland. Pluto was taking a picture with a group of people. The young boy was told by an...

    Sheraton Vistana Villages

    Vistana Villages, not to be confused with Vistana which is much older is a great place to enjoy your stay. We stayed in the Key West section last October with my brother and his wife. Villas are spacious and very clean and modern. There is a Publix and Walgreens right down the street along...
