    January Boardwalk Refurb

    I'm booked at the Boardwalk for January 22 - 27 and just received the notice of ongoing construction during our visit. It's a form letter (of course) so there are no details about the refurbishment, but figured I'd pass along the info. I did a search for Boardwalk refurb and looks like the...

    Flying pixels

    I haven't seen this new patent from Disney mentioned on the boards yet. There's tons of potential for something like this. It will be interesting to see if it ever sees a real application.

    Hey all. I just got home from a week at HHI. It was our first full week there and we loved it. One item to know for any of you planning to go in the next few months, the Tide Me Over quick service is getting a total refurb. They added additional bus service to the beach house and I think...

    Construction at the American Adventure Pavilion

    I noticed a building going up at the American Adventure Pavilion last week. Unfortunately I didn't snap a picture of it. It's on the right hand side of the main building. The only permit I can find for it was from January, so it's been going on for a few months now. It's vertical enough now...

    Gates for the Boardwalk?

    Walked from the Boardwalk to Dolphin this morning and they are working on something at the Atlantic Dance Hall. Looks like the could be gating the entrance to the Boardwalk. Has anyone heard anything about it?

    I deas for 1day at HHI

    This summer we (2 adults with 3 kids age 10-15) are driving to WDW and we're stopping for 2 nights at HHI on the way south. This will give us a full day to enjoy the resort and island. Any recommendations for how to spend the day? BTW - I love to golf, but as a family that's probably not an...

    PAP Special Discount Ends Soon

    Picked up my PAP's for next year this morning. YAY! :) This is the first time I'll be a PAP holder. We'll be using them for a trip around the 4th of July and again in early 2014. Thought I'd post a reminder that the $399 deal ends on 12/31, so if you're planning to get them, now's the time.

    DVC Math

    So we have the thread about non-economical reasons to join DVC. I'd like to turn the tables for those who prefer hard numbers. Here's how it will work: There are expenses, and there are savings. Most of them are specific to how each person/family travels. Add items to each category in your...

    Now that Aulani is open...

    Now that Aulani is open, I expect them to break ground on the National Harbor DVC soon. I'm sure the paperwork problem they had with Aulani will need to be fully vetted first, but as soon as that's complete, they should be ready for their next off-site location to start. I can see a trend...

    Parking for the Boardwalk

    I did a quick search for this and couldn't find an answer. Probably operator error :shrug:. Anyway, if you want to go to the Boardwalk but not through Epcot, where can you park? Do you go to the Boardwalk resort's parking lot?

    Call me crazy, but ...

    How many DVC owners out there take trips to WDW without buying park tickets? I've been generating a list of things I'd like to do at WDW that don't require park tickets. After out first DVC stay at AKL-KV, I think our next trip will be without park passes. There were so many activities to keep...
