    Why did WDW stop making EVENTS out of Disney movies?

    In years when we hit both WDW and DL over the last 5 or 6 years we still noticed they would do some marketing at DL for movies that were about to come out. I think the reason is that the marketing push in a park that caters to locals is probably more effective at selling seats and getting word...

    Soarin' Over Cali returns to DCA...why not us??

    Is it even possible to get more traffic on the ride? Everytime we have been to EPCOT over the past several years there is always a line for Soarin' that pretty much goes until EPCOT closes. How could you get more traffic on it? I know they don't run all the screens all the time, but if you...

    Soarin' Over Cali returns to DCA...why not us??

    I believe they always had 2 versions of mission space the extreme and relaxing.

    Soarin' Over Cali returns to DCA...why not us??

    You are probably right, which is why whoever is in charge of the world version would do all they could to avoid it happening to prove that they failed.

    Soarin' Over Cali returns to DCA...why not us??

    Given the crowds at WDW I'm not sure they need to boost attendance. DL is a different beast that will often run special things because they are more focused on getting the local traffic... which I think is one of the reason you get the Halloween overlays at DL but have never had them at MK.

    Heat and humidity tips

    Just remember that too much sunscreen can also keep your body from perspiring as it normally would. Unless you are really fair skinned a good wide brimmed hat and long sleeve shirt can be reasonable effective.

    Heat and humidity tips

    Also wearing light colors helps. For the love of god don't wear anything black, you'll pay for it dearly. My normal clothing for fighting summer hear in Florida is a white thin linen long sleeve shirt and shorts. The long sleeves might seem odd but because my arms are pretty brown it keeps me...

    Mickey's Philharmagic

    It's possible that they simply have a very low number of fastpasses for it to begin with since it isn't a hugely popular ride and it doesn't every really have much of a line. Maybe they hold back a lot of the fastpasses for the day of simply to give people the ability to get a 4th fastpass...

    Soarin' Over Cali returns to DCA...why not us??

    Unlikely. Whoever pushed to have the Soarin' re shot from a global perspective most likely did so based on spreading the allocated costs across all the parks showing it, if they were to can it from California it would make the person that had pushed for it to look like they failed. You don't...

    What will happen when the Skyliner breaks down?

    Yes they have to carry some of them down stairs, but at least stairways are wider than a ladder, not to mention in most instances the firefighter use the elevators.

    What will happen when the Skyliner breaks down?

    They better have some insanely strong rescue workers on call as some of the scooter bound people probably weight more than 400 pounds excluding the scooter. Trying to carry someone that size that has legs incapable of supporting thie own wieght will not be easy.

    What will happen when the Skyliner breaks down?

    I'm sure it wouldn't be extremely difficult to get fully mobile healthy adults off the Gondola if it were to ever get stuck... but then the question is how hard would it be if the guest were scooter bound? Or if the Gondola is over the alligator infested water? I know from one map it appears...

    Ferry Boat bathroom removal permit

    Probably depends a lot on the city you live in more than the state. We don't get out building permits from the state we have to get them from the city you live in. If you life outside the city limits you can pretty much build whatever an no one will say anything. And the cities pretty much...

    Ferry Boat bathroom removal permit

    Given the age of the ferries and the way toilets on large boats used to be done in the past, the removal of the toilets may have had more to do with environmental regulations. A lot of toilets on boats int he past really just ended up dumping the waste into the water. While the early models of...

    Ferry Boat bathroom removal permit

    Permit are required for construction of things that become permanent fixtures. If they were to build a bathroom on the docks for the ferry boats they would need a permit, just as they would if they built them at the monorail stations... but if they add them to the boats or monorail trains or...

    What is the worst ride in Epcot? (Quality-wise)

    A poll like this probably needs to be a bit more specific... if you were talking simply bad with no caveats then you get one answer, but if you factor in how the ride was constrained by its intended purpose you get another answer... Sadly when I look at the voting list it just highlights how...

    Strollers aren't the problem!

    I have to wonder how those studies came up with "weight neutral". I don't think I've ever seen a OCP that didn't have weight gain as listed side effect, of course some also include weight loss as a possible side effect as well. I wonder if those studies showed it was weight neutral based on...

    Canvas work

    What size do you want... and what do you consider a reasonable price... If you want the most reasonable then probably walmart... shutterfly is a close second... if you want better results then you might use a service like adoramapix... but they are about twice the price of walmart.

    Strollers aren't the problem!

    You have to remember the US has more lawyers than they need so lots of them make their living filing lawsuits that push the envelope of what is real and what is frivolous.

    Strollers aren't the problem!

    It isn't just a concern of them being offended, you also risk being sued by the person claiming you made their injury worse. Some states have good Samaritan laws that protect you but others don't... unless you know for sure its best to just let them bleed to death.
