    Sanity Check

    As posted previously this year I'm going to Florida with small people in tow,age 9 & 11. Generally previous trips have involved maximizing park visits to extended opening hours days and being a serious park pounder & coaster junkie. Being less experienced with childrens stamina & appetite,Im...

    Say goodbye to ALL the clubs at PI.

    Memories ah.... I have many great memories of PI. It was a great night to spend one of our honeymoon evenings in 2000. Me & the wife were staying off site but we booked a night in the all star rock club and made a proper evening of it. We went to the comedy club to start and ended up dancing...

    No bother. I managed to find the spec on another site. I'm a total petrol head,but knew very little about NASCAR before I went being a Brit.The induction & learning session was really good and well structured so I felt confident despite getting into the most powerful car I've ever been in...

    Kevin Yee- Parks close one day a week?

    Last week I paid £1.399 a litre for diesel.By my calculations thats $10.4171/US Gallon. Yet when I booked my November break to WDW I struggled to get the days & flights I wanted because they were already booked. So I guess there are plenty of Brits still making the escape to get away from our...

    Killing time in the queues

    They are 8 & 10 (I had to ask Mrs R) I don't engage very well with anyone under the age of 16 apparently.My wife thinks this trip is a good training exercise for me to get used to the idea of fatherhood.

    Archeology IS fun

    Me & Mrs R were reminiscing over our honeymoon in 2000 over the weekend, and I need some help. We both recalled a big tent somewhere in Dinoland in the AK where there was a talk given by 3 knowledgeable?! 'archeologists'. It was informative & also very funny in places. In 2004 we went off...

    Killing time in the queues

    This year me & Mrs R will be going with friends with children. A novel experience as Im known to be only just child tolerant in small amounts. Whilst I normally amuse myself by looking at the scenery & examining the queue management systems & technology (don't ask),Mrs R amuses herself by...

    Any one ever done the Petty driving experience?

    My wife bought me the standard experience for my 30th in 2004 & it was worth every penny. Being a Brit I wasn't up on NASCAR,but I am a total petrol head,and having driven one I am now a fan of NASCAR. The Disney circuit is great,hasn't got the WOW factor of Daytona,but still challenging and...

    question about England in EPCOT

    ebay would be a good start for vintage Action Man ,but Amazon.co.uk & toymaster.co.uk as well as Woolworths, ToysRus, & Toys4me all do the newer stuff. You shouldn't find Lego at the Toy Soldier.Its not British,its Danish. The older Action Man was much better.Rubber gripping hands,proper...

    If 40 million people visit WDW each year...

    Its a sad fact that people die.Its sadder that it should happen whilst someone is on holiday. WDW is a magical place,but even Walt himself couldn't stop the inevitable. Unfortunately we now live in an age of abulance chasing lawyers & blame culture.Theres no such thing as an accident.It always...

    Tickets for the Brits

    I did a lot of googling before our last visit,but found very little in terms of savings between various companies in the UK and also conversions to US rates. I did find a small piece on a Disney site explaining that tickets prices are strictly controlled and there shouldn't be great variations...

    Question to our friends from the UK
