    Epcot Beer Tour

    WOOO HOOO! I have been saying this for years! I am a PA girl and around here we just call it "lager." You know you're home when you can just tell the bartender you want a lager. They sell Yuengling at AK and a few other places around the World. Yuengling just (and I mean withint the last 2...

    Does anyone else think this is funny?

    UUUgh :rolleyes: ...yet another shining example of the growing entitlement epidemic in this country. "I have to be the fastest and get there first and if I need to run you over to get where I want to go, then so be it." Seriously. I bet she honks her car horn when traffic is stopped for an...

    If you have access to a gym, use the eliptical machines instead of teh treadmills. Elipticals practically eliminate the impact on your joints and (I think) are more enjoyable. Also, gyms with Tvs are god-send; you would be suprised how fast the time flies when you are watching an hour and half...

    Superstar TV

    Not sure about current or future plans for the building, but the "room" you can see as you walk by is the pre-show area and it was always open-air. This is where the CMs pick the "stars" for the actual show.

    Who else does not buy souvenirs?

    My weakness is in the shops at the World Showcase... I've bought two rings at Japan, earrings and a fan at China, tea at Great Britan and I almost bought a necklace at Morrocco ($295). BF and I are usually very selective in what we buy and we usually wait until near the end of our trip to...

    South Beach does implement the principles of the glycemic index in Phases 2 and's just getting through Phase 1 that is hard. Phase 1 is two weeks of no carbs, sugar or caffeine. You can only eat green vegetables and yogurt (which is one of my favorite snacks) is out. The book goes into...

    Start Dieting for WDW trip PART II

    I am on day 8 of the 14 day Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet. I did this a few years ago and found it the only sane way to lose weight and not starve. I am more focused on the summer/bathing suit season as opposed to my trip to Disney in December, but I will join in! Started out on 3/30 at...

    Cheaper for UK than US visitors

    The packages Disney offers to our friends in the UK and Canada may be a bit cheaper right now, but the cost of airfare for them is substantially greater. PLUS they have to fool around with US Customs and whatnot when they arrive at MCO, and when they get back to their respective countries, so...

    Arguement in the parking lot

    Ugh, :rolleyes: what would compel someone to be such a ________ to a complete stranger? Furthermore, why do people enjoy talking about American/British foreign policy while on vacation in Disney World? Every trip since 2003 has been marred with nasty comments from both sides of the pond in the...

    Cinderella's Royal Table

    We did dinner in Sept (me-25 BF-30) and we loved it. We are not early risers and we don't typically like sit downs in the middle of the day, so dinner was the perfect option. Our steaks we perfect and the rasberry sorbet was the dessert of the trip! When you go for dinner, you get your picture...

    Spending money

    I would budget about $50 a day for trinkets and extra drinks (or take a Brita water bottle and fill it up at the water fountains around the parks). Since you have the dining plan (way to go!) may I offer this suggestion: don't waste a snack option on a drink. If you look at all the options for...

    Free Dining Rumor

    I honestly don't think Jimbo meant to offend. I think he was saying that Disney would look at the free dining (which would be about $100/day for a family of 4) as enough of a discount and allow double-dipping with the room portion discount. You will get attitude from other members here, but...
