    Cruise line ad attacks price of Disney World

    (I'm sharing this here because I want to know, if you've done both a Disney and a Princess Cruise, how did they contrast?) I thought this was a clever ad . . . . . . but the cost of the additional excursions they show in the commercial would make it an expensive cruise, and an inside cabin...

    News Princess Cruises takes shot at cost of WDW

    Clever ad . . . . . . but the cost of the additional excursions they show in the commercial would make it an expensive cruise, and an inside cabin on a Disney Cruise to Alaska is a good deal. My young daughter LOVED our Disney Wonder vacation to Alaska, as did my wife & I. I've written this...

    Is Disney ever NOT "experiencing higher call volume"?

    Every time I call the Disneyland Resort I hear something like "we are currently experiencing higher than normal call volume" before they inform me that I'll have to wait 20 to 40 minutes on hold to speak with a human. Has this been your experience recently too? I wonder if Disneyland or WDW...

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

    Unless I misunderstood a Disney Food Blog video, reservations for the more popular Disney World restaurants should be made at 6am Eastern Time, which is at 3am Pacific Time? D'OH! This 60 days in advance & (3am) requirement for where I'd prefer to eat is in the cons column as I decide if we'll...

    How does D.land's compensation for new CMs contrast with this?

    I saw a sign at an In 'n' Out in LaVerne, CA today. (LaVerne is east of San Dimas and north of Pomona.) Now Hiring Starting at $17.25 per hour. Earn up to $20.75 Flexible Scheduling Dental & Vision Insurance Paid Vacations 401(k) Plan Free Meals How does this contrast with what Disneyland's...

    If you saw the Horseshoe Revue & HoopDeeDoo, which did...

    IF & ONLY IF you experienced BOTH the (Diamond/Golden) Horseshoe Revue AND the Hoop Dee Doo musical show at Fort Wilderness, which show did you like more? How did the shows compare & contrast? (I loved the Horseshoe Revues & am wondering if the Hoop Dee Doo would be worthwhile.)

    If you've been to a Europa Park themed hotel, please share...

    I'm been surprised a few times at how Park Europa rips off Disney parks, but I'd still like to check it out. There are 8 themed hotels on this Park Europa page I linked below. Theming a hotel like a natural history museum was clever. https://www.europapark.de/en/accommodation

    We just reserved an AKL resort hotel room (not a villa)

    Howdy folks, I just switched our hotel reservations to the classic (original) Animal Kingdom Lodge resort hotel -- not the vacation club villas. If you don't see the option online, I suggest calling 407-939-1882.

    IDEA for the SE corner of DCA

    A variation --with an even larger tiered balcony-- of the top of the Avengers NYC building (with the room where Hulk smashed Loki) would be cool at the SE corner of DCA (where a 7-11 now stands) in the block that the Disneyland Resort is located on. Maybe a hotel and/or E-ticket ride could be...

    Disney, DONT bring back 180-day-in-advance restaurant reservations.

    I hope Disney doesn't bring back 180-day-in-advance restaurant reservations, I don't want to plan out which park I'll be visiting each day 6 months from now. We went to Paris in the summer of 2019 & it was less of a hassle to plan than our trip to Disney World two years earlier. I'm grateful...

    Need Skyliner or train between EPCOT & Port Orleans ASAP!

    Hey Disney, I want a Skyliner or some sort of cool, attractive, very high capacity trains between the nearby (as the love bugs fly) Port Orleans resorts and EPCOT, and I would have this suddenly performed. To quote Wallace Shawn's character in The Princess Bride, "I'M WAITING." Since you are...

    Wonderful restaurant owner takes entire staff to Disney World!

    My hero of the day: https://www.newsobserver.com/living/...227259924.html I was annoyed after I read a comment (in one of the articles about this) by a know-it-all guy who wrote that you can't run a business this way and that she'll go bankrupt. So I sent this awesome owner, Gypsy Gilliam, a...

    Have U ridden Soarin' over Europe@B Gardens Williamsburg?

    I LOVED Soarin' Over California, and liked the Soarin over the World, despite that everything looks warped if you're not in the center. I also liked the Soarin' over America & Soarin' Over Canada films (whtever they're called) at the Mall of America, despite that they are really shameful in how...

    Reason NOT to Disney Cruise (trip insurance refund hassles)

    In 2013 we took a Disney Cruise to Alaska, and everyone in my family agrees it was our best holiday ever. This summer we were going to take a Disney cruise in Europe as part of a longer vacation, but my mother-in-law has been hospitalized and my wife as been back to NYC (from L.A.) several...

    Top Ten Ways My Home is Like Disneyland

    Top Ten Ways My Home is Like Disneyland by Tom Sinsky 1. To increase revenue from rent, food & parking, we've had 8 other families move in with us. Yes, it's crowded, but more space should open up when we open up our Star Wars den and admit 5 additional families. 2. At Christmas I charge...

    I'd like (please) a new House of Horrors that dwarfs, out-scares & outclasses Disney's Haunted Mansion. I'd repeatedly enjoy a new $300 million+ House of Horrors that tries to dramatically outdo the Haunted Mansion (my all-time favorite attraction.) Please make it partly walk-through, partly...
