    May 24: If you are north of Jacksonville, whatever you do, avoid I-95: Large Wildfire to Jacksonville's north

    How do I turn off alerts?

    I have a Windows 10 computer. I was prompted at the bottom of the screen, would I like to turn on alerts (Windows 10 alerts with a sound effect and a popup at the bottom right of the screen)? I said yes to stop the prompt. Wish I hadn't said yes. Don't get me wrong, I like visiting WDWMagic...

    Convert a WDW Restaurant into a Characeter Meal

    As many of you know Artist Point was converted into a character meal with Snow White, two dwarfs and a photo op with the Evil Queen. Pick another restaurant and convert it into a character meal. I’ll start. Boatwright’s at POR becomes Tiana’s. You’re visited by Tiana and that alligator.

    News Disney Movie Magic Ending (Getting ready for Wonderful World of Animation?)

    By clicking on the calendar at the WDW website, I noticed that Disney Movie Magic ends February 23. Considering that Wonderful World of Animation is supposed to begin in May (according to this blog post), it would appear this is to get the new show ready for a May launch. At first I thought...

    Annual Passholder: Bus vs. Driving to Parks

    I preface this for Annual Passholders and on-site guests because they get free parking. Non AP holders staying off-site have to pay $25 to park so bus may be the preferred option for them. I stayed off property this past weekend because I decided on a last minute trip. I stayed at the...

    April 27 OI Meetup Transportation Question

    I'm considering the April 27 OI Meetup. But I have a resort reservation (for now) at WDW starting 4/26. Is it better to drive to it and back? (Obviously, traffic will be light along I-4 between 1-2am after the event is over). Should I Uber? Or maybe a reservation for one night at UOR with my...

    Bad Experience at OI Meetup

    Actually happened to me at the 12/15 OI Meetup: After parks close to day guests, Orlando Informer sets up cash bars at both parks during their Meetups. At the cash bars, they hand out beers in opened cans. Rather, they should pour all beverages into cups. Do not hand out open beer cans, for...

    Can you watch Illuminations from the balcony at Tokyo Dining? If so, how good a view is it? Can I just reserve an ADR for a dessert/after dinner drink?

    Of all the days...

    So, I live in the Florida Panhandle and my 60 days out for making FP+ selections is the exact day that Hurricane Michael is expected to blow through. Worst case, I assume I can use my app if power is out.
