    Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon

    I agree @Figment82 i am certainly ok with the medal, and I love Mickey and America. But, for 10 years, I too was hoping for a throwback style focusing on SSE. See ya there!

    Any happy hour deals at Disney Springs?

    Jock’s was terrific. They had live music and special pricing outside.

    Quick service spots to avoid

    Another vote for Electric Umbrella. Bleh.

    Grand Floridian to MK Walkway

    I’ve always been all for this. It will properly link both Poly and Grand Flo to MK by foot. With Disney monorails and busing becoming so cumbersome, a walkway is perfect and a major reason why we prefer the Epcot Resorts.

    Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon

    This course was always unique and focused more on Studios, AK, and I love that final celebratory World Showcase lap! Whatever changes occur I do hope that the World Showcase Lap remains...which was relatively new to this race but makes so much sense.

    News Coronado Springs Expansion - Gran Destino Tower

    I agree with you about proximity. But my concern is the crowds. A lot more rooms were added at this property. They increased food options, but did not increase pool/deck space. I think of the olden days before Beach Club Villas how much more quiet Yacht&Beach were. Stormalong Bay wasn’t...

    News Blizzard Beach closing for extended refurbishment this year with enhancements coming

    A water coaster would be terrific, as would some winding body slides similar to Storm Slides. BB has 2 body slides that are pretty extreme, and their mat slides are generic. The three storm slides are different, but the 3 slalom slides are the same. Terrific to see something coming, tho!

    Disney Should NOT allow kids on shoulders during fireworks

    I am 6’4 and I have had many a nasty comment directed at me for obstructing a view.

    Does Disney celebrate "Christmas in July" in ANY way?

    Christmas in July is big here at a beach town! ABCFamily used to be festive, but freeform did not continue that tradition.

    Potter in Disney World?

    I’m so glad Universal got Harry Potter. We’d not see anything like the Wizarding World at Disney, and we wouldn’t know any better. Would be a shame.

    Changes to Fastpass+ Tiers at Hollywood Studios Effective 8.29

    What is the rationale for this change? What is the benefit to MGM, or the Guest?

    News Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue replacing Liberty Inn

    Isn’t that a long time??! It had a great run. We have not found a new spot.

    News Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue replacing Liberty Inn

    I like this idea. The Liberty Inn does hold an object my dad hid in 2006 on a family trip. We check for it every single year. The object is still there, as of June 2019. It was 35 cents...in case cells weren’t working and we needed to make a call for help. How funny. But it’s still there, and...

    News IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced in 2019

    I don’t have much confidence after Happily Ever After and this new cartoonified Rivers of Light. But I’ve made peace with that.

    News IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced in 2019

    On my 4 night trip last week, I caught Illuminations 3x on nights 1, 2, and 4. Night 1 it started raining but I didn’t care. Night 2 was great, and night 4 was amazing with my friends. And that was the last time I will catch that show live, in person. I was teary eyed but smiling for that last...

    News Tower of Terror to operate at reduced capacity due to an extended refurbishment

    I’m a Tower geek. All time fav ride. I rode it Tuesday night. The show issues relating to volume and timing remained. At the end, there was no audio playing to accompany the short video. And no audio in the drop shaft. The ride felt wayyy more intense. My butt was way out of my seat, very...

    My Disney Experience system status and outages watch

    I don’t have any dining or FP that show up. Just Resorts are there. Been two days.

    Pre-race carb loading

    I agree that I love a food court spaghetti and meatballs. Will usually eat two. Mama Melrose is also a pretty consistent stop I make. I will supplement these meals with protein throughout the days before. And I also have a rule to stop at a water fountain and drink each time I pass one, to...
