    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Judge Micelle sits in the Middle District of Florida (e.g., Orlando), so within the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, not one of the more influential courts to have ruled on pandemic topics, unlike, say, the Sixth Circuit headed by its increasingly-influential Chief Judge Jeff...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Jumping back in for the first time in months, so please forgive me if someone actually said something about this already (other than, "what does this mean?!"). There are two parts to Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle's decision today: 1) The CDC did not have sufficient authorization from Congress...

    Ordered ours the day before the USPS official site was turned on (the site was up for testing), and they were in our mailbox less than a week later.

    SPOILERS: Book of Boba Fett - Latest episodes

    Filoni, for all his genius, does sometimes set up things that just aren't well-explained or integrated. For example, Clone Wars arc for the all-powerful, all-important Mortis, the One family home planet. Still waiting for that one (pun intended) to know how it all fits in. Perhaps in Ahsoka?

    SPOILERS: Book of Boba Fett - Latest episodes

    Perhaps Luke's failure to train Grogu was at least a partial cause of his later failures with Ben Solo and the Academy as a whole?

    FTFY. Even then, some of the info here is better than most other sources, particularly the "boots-on-the-ground" stuff. And, of course, the WDW info. And an update: 3yo GS still doing fine in his vaccine trial, which should be coming to an end shortly. No side effects, no infections though...

    Generally, yes, but also, no. The grant of the stay in the OSHA case brought by business groups led by the NFIB probably dooms the rest of that case: "Applicants are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the Secretary lacked authority to impose the mandate." Slip op. at 5. Six...

    where to stay on budget?

    And it depends on when. For example, we had reservations for last December at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tuscany Village (we ended up not going for non-covid health reasons) for a 1 bedroom with sofa sleeper condo for $135/night, on a deal that required advance reservations 90 days ahead.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Not sure why you are saying that, unless you mean the specific phrase "super spreader event"? After all, in Post #95,806, less than a week ago, I said: And yesterday, the same county reported a 13.3333% jump in total pandemic cases, again traceable to the original pre-Christmas event. So that's...

    Trip Report It’s broken. A Loco Christmas TR!

    The main reason we didn't buy in Conroe was traffic. We call it the town where traffic never sleeps. The infrastructure just hasn't caught up with the growth. Much like LBV and all of the Disney area not so long ago, except that there's nobody in Conroe to build infrastructure like Disney can...

    Trip Report It’s broken. A Loco Christmas TR!

    Indeed. In fact, the fastest growing area in Texas is Conroe, where the local forest is home to the endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpecker (though it is endangered largely because of the nearby population growth :rolleyes:), just north of The Woodlands, itself often rated the #1 area to live in...

    Reply briefs were filed today (Monday, Jan. 3) in the four vaccine mandate cases which will be argued at the Supreme Court this Friday. Think you had a busy New Years weekend? In four days, some excellent lawyers frantically churned out hundreds of pages of legal arguments for these and their...

    Trip Report We’re Soarin’, Flyin’… Into the Unknown

    Good choice! Decades ago, there was actual science research done at the Observatory. My CalTech team spent many nights (after the crowds left) working all night using the real telescopes inside the dome to observe "flare stars" (which increase suddenly in brightness), including our nearest...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    In my tiny, isolated, home county, which has one of the highest vax and booster percentages in the country, our pandemic total case number just jumped by 10% in less than a week. All because of one big Christmas event. I learned a new phrase: "tertiary contacts (people infected by people who...

    Disneyland sold out for the rest of December - OCR/SCNG

    Ah, fond memories of having to dig UP from the front door to get out of our Alpine Meadows cabin. And the snow being so heavy against the windows that the windows would break IN. Oh, and the snowplow drivers charging a Chapek-level fortune.

    Reservations should be made at 3am Pacific time? YIKES!

    Yes, and keep in mind that, when you do that clicking in at 3AM PST, you have no guarantee of getting what you want. Which likely would make you less likely to get back to sleep. Happened to me. 😴

    Very interesting. Here's the actual Order: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/122221zr2_f20h.pdf. The dockets are really short: https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/21a240.html...
