    2020 rates???

    I'm trying to research if DL is even in our vacation budget for 2020 but rates still don't show for me. Do they normally hold off for this long? Or am I missing something? I have to have vacations requests of 5 day or more in 6 months before (work policy limits how many ppl can be off at the...

    What to book with fp+

    FYI if you can't deal with enclosed tight spaces maybe avoid Mission: Space. We got stuck on it a few weeks ago the 2nd time riding for 25 minutes. DH said he didn't have issues with it, until the dang thing breaks down, then it turned into anxiety when we couldn't get out. Made worse by...

    News Primeval Whirl at Disney's Animal Kingdom experiencing extended downtime

    Well it only cost $6/person to ride a wild mouse at the Indiana state fair, course that doesn't include the $9 admission and $8 parking fee lol.

    Quick service dining plan

    Mobile Order anywhere possible. We were at Cosmic Ray's at peak lunch time, full queue. Mobile ordered and had food in less than 5 minutes.

    News New Space Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Just my guess, but does November 2nd sound like a feasible opening? Only reason behind date: ISS Anniversary.

    News New Signature Restaurant for Japan Pavilion - Takumi-Tei

    Did you do the Chef's table or a la cart menu? TBH I don't care much for the apps, but the entrees sound great. Wondering if those portions small as well.

    News New Signature Restaurant for Japan Pavilion - Takumi-Tei

    I read that also, then an ADDITIONAL $75 for the sake/wine pairing. I've gotta ask how are they really going to do the tea ceremony. Don't mind maybe sharing a sip with DH, but no way I'm drinking after a stranger even if they do properly wipe the rim.

    The Joys of NO FastPass (DL waits for Falcon average an hour)

    Your forgetting one portion of the attendance mix which can contribute to a more even distribution of attendance: year round schooling. The schools around our district have switched to this style so kids have more vacation time available without missing school at what use to be low attendance...

    How much time per Epcot pavillion?

    Japan took our most time by over an hour. That included DD10 doing a pick-a-pearl and watching the drummers. Some pavilions also have characters so that may add more time. We averaged 30 minutes at a slow pace and Kidscot stops.

    2 parent 1 9 year old and sharing rides

    We got ditched by DD10 on a few rides, she opted to ride in front of us so she could ride with another kid, so there is that option...

    How much does the music at Disney add to the experience for you?

    I don't pay a ton of attention to background music mainly because I'm listening to a 10yo jabberjaw from the time I wake. I will say I enjoyed hearing my style of music at Villians night a couple weeks ago though.

    Change in metal detector policy - June 2019

    1 detected DD10s sunglasses, a different didn't. I went off a few times with nothing in my pockets only metal was on my sandals. They just waved me through without stopping so not sure what the point really is.

    Disney dining plan went up

    We had the DDP for this past trip. When we left we had 12 snack credits, 8 quick service, and 0 table left. Heres where our problem was: when DH went to get himself a bite to eat he kept paying cash and not using credits. 😡 I added up his receipts and it would have saved us a little over $200 if...

    Changes to Fastpass+ Tiers at Hollywood Studios Effective 8.29

    After reading through quite a bit of this I didn't see mention of the emailed promo some people received awhile back about a stay that included 60 day FP open to multiple parks. I bring it up because is there a possibility they are looking into how many people park hop if they can get 2...

    How long can a FastPass+ line be?

    What throws a wrench in things is long downtime before your FP window. Sure the FP changes to an anytime pass BUT ppl may still save it for the same ride. Own experience was TT was down multiple times by the time our window came around, the FP line was extended past the entrance. CM stated about...

    OK, what could Disney do in the parks that you would actually like?

    Open the Youth Education programs to individual kids enrollment, we don't have groups around here that do those types of things. I'd love for DD10 to get enrolled in a 3-4hr theater program that the kids get to do a mini "dinner show" for their parents at the end. Not in park but: bring back the...

    News Disney Villains After Hours coming to the Magic Kingdom this summer

    I was on the fence about going to this in a couple weeks. While watching the video and the sword routine I thought "this music would fit if they threw in fire dancing", so the entertainment part is more my style. It's really going to come down to day of if it's not sold out and whether DD10 will...

    First Time Shipping

    Just shipped Instax Disney film and a few smaller items because I'm not dealing with the TSA screening for the film cartridges. FedEx Express saver (3 business days delivery), own packaging, 6lbs cost me $18. Wrote name and arrival date on all 4 sides so it will be easier to find at resort...

    How long will you enjoy theme parks, or how long DID you enjoy the rides?

    Admittedly this year will only be my 2nd visit age 38, first being in 2017 with DH40 and DD now 10. I'm a big theme park/amusement park person so visit the locals every summer. I've slowed down on coasters mainly due to height requirements which DD10 just now hit the 54' illusive mark this...
