    What do people dislike about Enchantment?

    I'm not very familiar with the projections because we're similarly disenchanted with crowds. Have seen Enchantment at least a dozen times from various spots but not yet from Main Street or the Hub. Next month I might force myself to at least attempt.

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

    I finally gave in and watched some videos from closing including the cast member last rides and guests singing together. I thought I had my closure riding with my daughter alone in a log in December but with the videos I cried a bit. The ride was great but my memories will be stronger riding...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

    I believe in the concept a Tiana is in some new outfit that's adventure-y. Surely it will be available to purchase as a rain outfit and sold to protect oneself on the attraction!

    California Grill fireworks

    I guess it's happened enough at R and C. We were given a heads up by a friend and were asked to pay before so it wasn't a surprise. It is a lot easier to escape into the crowd EPCOT than it is at California Grill where you'd wait for an elevator. That probably deters many from attempting.

    New three-course selection menu coming to California Grill

    Right, and using similar thoughts (frequency seeing) is why I don't think we'll ever see a California Grill per person minimum to spend as desired, as much sense as it sounds. It's super uncommon outside of a few niche examples so there'd likely be more guest pushback compared to a more familiar...

    California Grill fireworks

    Let your waiter know you'd like to step out to see fireworks and they'll likely work with you to space out what comes out so you're not served anything at 8:10. At Rose and Crown I've been asked to pay the bill, at least what's ordered at the time before stepping out. Unsure if Cali Grill would...

    New three-course selection menu coming to California Grill

    To support your point, Chefs de France and La Creperie both have a prix fixe option next to a la carte options.

    New three-course selection menu coming to California Grill

    My three guesses were (1) "temporary" prix fixe, (2) priced higher than Royal Table, and (3) homages to shuttered Contemporary restaurants. 2/3 ain't bad. As was mentioned it was never going to be temporary with people holding tables splitting one app and that's it. I blame Disney for many...

    Whats the most recent bad majorish ride Disney has built?

    I don't really know anyone that has hyped MFSR unless they rode as a pilot or were talking about the MF itself, and Id think most agree those are appropriately hyped. Overall, yeah, it's not all-around amazing but I think it does very well as a family attraction. It's more approachable for...

    Reedy Creek Improvement District long-term land use meeting 2023

    It's since been updated at least with a link to Len's site.

    Reedy Creek Improvement District long-term land use meeting 2023

    You were getting at leverage before and that seems most likely. If there's any possibility that RCID governance changes then it makes sense make your layups now before the state government postures it will make you take full court length shots or force concessions. While Disney controls...

    I see that Len's reporting has already been picked up by That Site. They even used the same like words. 👍

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular

    EPCOT has the highest hill to climb to please fans and I don't think there's much Disney can do to shake people clamoring for nostalgia. I hope they figure it out because I'm in the camp that EPCOT needs to move forward and not revert to its past. Short of nostalgia a sizable chunk of fans...

    News Happily Ever After fireworks show returning to Magic Kingdom in 2023

    I can't fault believing "You Are the Magic" is the best of the three but "The Magic is Calling" is the third finisher and has been lapped many times in the race. And that's why I prefer HEA's song. "You Are the Magic" works fine and is enjoyable but low energy, not unlike myself.

    So... it's the same show only updated with new projections on Main Street?

    Looking for 30 Points Transfer for BLT 09/23

    There's a BLT 85 point transfer available at dvcstore.com. I'm not affiliated but receive their emails. I've worked out transfers through Facebook groups before but that's more risky.

    Unusual things to do outside the parks

    We just had many nonpark days. Some things we did are below. Visit Fort Wilderness and do Hoop de Doo. We also did a carriage ride. Can make it a longer day if checking out Tri Circle D ranch. Two nights a week there are also food trucks. If you do Trail's End instead know that opening days are...

    Contemporary feature pool and whirlpool spas closing for refurbishment in January 2023

    It's a longer walk but the Bay Lake Tower pool should be able to handle everyone that wants to swim. The week before Christmas barely anyone was out there even when temps were upper 60s. As an aside, I hadn't walked around Contemporary grounds much until recently and didn't realize how nice...

    DVC Resale Question

    As of D23 it was still 2024 although at that point I don't think they'd cleared the site yet.
