    Understanding WDW “locals”

    (I’ll leave DL up to someone else.) What I’m doing here is basically pulling an @eliza61nyc: I’m taking an offshoot of another thread that deserves its own thread. This comes up often: folks malign or misrepresent “the locals” and “the locals” attempt to correct misperceptions. It can easily...

    New FP rules? We booked FP #1 and FP #2 in two different parks, same day

    I don't know if I missed an announcement. Yesterday we had booked only one FP - Slinky Dog Dash at HS. After using it, we left the park. In the evening, I was able to book our second FP at Buzz Lightyear in MK, and could have booked more but didn't. Those were the only two FP's we made for...

    Oh, no! It’s Mr. Bill! Or a gingerbread man troll at CBR.

    What’s that at the end of the walking path under the bridge? He didn’t charge a toll or ask a riddle. But he’s a little creepy in person! We were cracking up! And yes, he is two-faced (sided) and his brother is at the other end. Maybe they could spring for a pirate statue or a nice Mickey...

    A whole new level of CM appreciation:

    This was a post from an actual friend on my actual fb feed. Apparently somebody’s young daughter thought Nils at the German pavilion was cute. ...and now he’s on a blanket. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

    How early do you put up your Christmas decorations? And when do you take them down?

    A post in another thread prompted me to ask this. I thought if I asked it there, it might derail the thread. When I was a kid, we usually put up our Christmas tree and decorations/lights about two weeks before Christmas. Sometimes it may have been slightly earlier to get it done on a weekend...

    News Walt Disney World Annual Pass price changes effective October 16 2018

    https://www.wdwmagic.com/other/magi...nual-pass-price-increases-effective-today.htm As someone who buys the cheapest AP, I still say they need to stop the rampant increases. At least we had a heads up before the March increase, and I bought my current pass then. Twice in one year is not...

    “When Mickey Came To Town” on TV

    Recorded this last night on the Link channel. It’s from 2016, only 30 minutes long; and although it portrays Disney unfavorably, it was interesting to see the facts about when they wanted to build Disney’s America in Virginia in 1993-4. It initially had 75% public support, which reversed...

    Rivers of Light & HEA on demand on DirecTV

    One of my regular searches on my DirecTV is for “Walt Disney World.” Last night, two new selections popped up as on demand free options. One is Rivers of Light, an official, professional recording with some nice close-ups that would be hard to catch otherwise. The other is Happily Ever After...

    Pre-Trip 2 Broke Guys (and a dog!) and $200 French Fries?! multiple short trips

    Who: Tony: Wait, a little more recent, please (but remember the blue tufted sofa for later.) "Hidden Mickey" ears behind me? It's actually a wall mural with ocean waves. Brian: That picture of him is 8 years old, but still adorbs. ...and sometimes Kylie: 60 pounds of German...

    Once Upon A Time goes to the Haunted Mansion

    Spoiler alert: if you are watching the ABC series “once upon a time,” and haven’t watched the most recent episode, you may want to skip this. I love that they gave more than a little nod to my favorite Walt Disney World attraction, the HM, including the character Leota! They left the door open...

    Trip Report One enormous BirthdayversaryPalooza! aka 2 Broke Guys & a dog & Irma COMPLETED

    We've been using the "2 Broke Guys" moniker for so long now, we've outlasted the TV show "2 Broke Girls" on which it was based. (Canceled!) The idea was a year+ of saving Disney Chase Visa points to see if we could go to Victoria & Albert's for our 10 year wedding anniversary completely on...

    What is the significance of your WDWMagic Userid/screenname?

    OK some of them are obvious - or at least they seem obvious. Did you pick your name because it had to do with your favorite character? Your kids? Your pet? Did you put much thought into it or just pick whatever came to mind first? Was it your first choice, or was something else already...

    New Disney Signature Services Department

    Not sure how noteworthy this is, but thought I might as well share. A quick search did not bring up any matches. A couple of days ago, I received a voicemail from a 407 area code. It turned out to be a CM from Disney Signature Services. I called back today and they said this is a new...

    Ticket price increases coming in the next month?

    I just got one of those monthly newsletter emails, and they suggest a price increase is very likely in the next month because it's been over 11 months since the last one, and they typically do one every year. Thoughts? Considering buying the next AP voucher and just holding it a few years...

    Do you pay for soap? 1st time DVC rental

    We are at Saratoga Springs - just 2 nights, first time renting DVC, kind of a "test run." Love it so far - but while exploring after check-in, we found a sign posted inside the door of a kitchen cabinet. It listed an inventory of every item in the room, and optional priced extras such as a...

    Free Rogue One or other Disney movie ticket with Duracell purchase

    I just came across this in a BJ's circular, and checked and found out it doesn't matter where you buy the Duracell batteries. If you buy $17 worth of Duracell batteries (at one time, on one receipt) and upload the receipt to duracell at http://www.duracellmovie.com/ they will give you one free...
