    is there bus parking at hotel

    I guess it really doesn’t matter what type of bus. I do not recall any dedicated parking for busses at any of the hotels we have stayed at. The parking areas of deluxe hotels are actually the smallest and most compact in my opinion. DVC lots especially at OKW and Saratoga are rather small as...

    BLT Disappointment

    Lesson learned - do some research next time. For how often we have visited, we still do research before booking as there are constant changes.

    CBR vs SSR

    For us, the nearer location to Disney Springs is a major plus as we enjoy the short walk. We usually have a car so the bus situation is normally not an issue. The Grandstand area is a close second - cannot go wrong with either location.

    Tough decision here

    Depends on which parks you plan on spending the most time. If it is Hollywood Studios and Epcot, then the Dolphin. Can walk to the parks and have the option of the Boardwalk area. If it is Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, consider Port Orleans FQ. Have to bus to those parks from either resort...

    CBR vs SSR

    Another vote for SSR. I am not a fan of CBR, but that is my opinion. The addition of of the Skyliner is an obvious plus but the resort as a whole seems too crowded. At SSR, we like the extra room especially with a 2 BR unit. Even though we don’t cook, the kitchen comes in handy for breakfast...

    Current Yacht and Beach Exterior Refurb

    We just got back last night from a four night stay at the Yacht Club. The exterior refurb is on rather small section nearer to the Beach Club, close to Beaches and Cream. Did not see any work being sone over the weekend and the only noise we heard was on Monday morning well past 9 am and that...

    I-95 snow storm disaster

    Traveling several times from New England at the end of January/beginning of February, we have altered plans a few times. At least twice we have left home a day or two early to beat incoming snowstorms. On one occasion we were staying at the Treehouses but had to spend the extra early two nights...

    Chapek and D'Amaro continue the tradition of no bonus or Christmas gift for Disney's Cast Members

    It is understood that cast members may have to work holidays when they accepted the job. When I worked in a 24/7 365 network operations center, it was understood that each tech was required to work two major holidays each year. If you don't like the possibility you may have to work Christmas...

    Chapek and D'Amaro continue the tradition of no bonus or Christmas gift for Disney's Cast Members

    When I worked at UPS back in the 80s, they gave every employee a frozen turkey. Worked at one of distribution/sorting centers. About a week before Thanksgiving, as you left after your shift they handed you frozen turkey.

    Chapek and D'Amaro continue the tradition of no bonus or Christmas gift for Disney's Cast Members

    Correct me if I am wrong. Doesn't Disney close MK to invite cast members who have reached a milestone work anniversary date to spend the evening in the park along with their family once a year? Granted this is not an annual "bonus" for all employees but the cost and lost revenue is a pretty big...

    That is what we got every year where I worked - the "annual Holiday E-Mail".

    Chapek and D'Amaro continue the tradition of no bonus or Christmas gift for Disney's Cast Members

    I worked for a giant telecommunications company (think of one with three letters) and for the 10+ years prior to getting laid off, the company never gave an end of year/Christmas bonus, party, luncheon or card. Hell, not a single decoration in the office unless an employee put something up in...
