    Curiosity About Random Spots at WDW

    Every once and a while I notice a random spot (or thing) at WDW that piques my interest. They are often off the beaten path and/or look as if they are vestigial remnants of something which no longer exists (or perhaps never finished!). Others, I imagine, may have originally been intended as...

    Can the East Coast Marvel Problem Really Be Solved? (Discussion)

    Most of us know that Universal has the theme parks right (east of the Mississippi) to the vast majority of Marvel characters as well as all the other particulars that go along with that. This post isn't about clarifying or debating any of that. I am curious about potential (viable) solutions...

    Disney-Pixar Movie Madness - 2019

    Last year, inspired by a bracket I had seen making the rounds on the internet, I created my own Disney-Pixar movie bracket for my family to do together. I thought it would be a fun thing to share so I have re-worked it for this community. The image is too big to share, and would've taken forever...

    Old SeaWorld TV Special or Tape

    I know this is really obscure but does anyone recall an old SeaWorld tv special and/or tape that featured a performance of Peter and the Wolf?

    Looking for Some Old Parade Music

    Is anyone aware of any decent recordings of the Remember the Magic parade? The 25th Anniversary version would be preferred but I'd settle for the other version if need be. All I can find on YouTube are actual videos of the parade from old camcorders. Needless to say, the audio quality is poor...

    Crowd Flow Tendencies at MK in the AM?

    Would anyone be able to speak to what the crowd flow tendencies are at the MK now that they are letting people onto Main Street before the official posted opening time? The reason I ask is my trip in early/mid May will be my first one since November 2015 and I'm wondering if the "plan of...

    Moderate Resort Recommendation Needed for Early May 2017

    My wife and I are currently considering doing one last WDW trip before we start our family and are looking at doing something in early May 2017. We'd like something a little nicer, grown up, and convenient than what the value resorts offer. Not to mention that we will have plenty of opportunity...
