    Epcot Hotels

    We’ve done yacht club, and enjoyed it. My kids (and I) love the slide and pool. Yachtsman was fantastic. We haven’t don’t it but I want to try boardwalk for the extra stuff to do right there.

    Epcot Hotels

    I prefer the dolphin because location wise it matches yacht, beach and boardwalk, but the price is better. We drive so magical express isn’t an issue. We’ve had luck with the buses there too.

    Who’s going to Galaxy’s Edge and when?

    I got my fix, or at least a taste yesterday in Anaheim. My family is psyched for it to open in Orlando!

    Epcot is kind of a hot mess right now....

    You need to take a picture of the Guardians building that includes Test Track for comparison. If you look at volume, I don't think the Guardians building is much bigger than TT. I noticed the dim dawn of time for the first time on Tuesday. Isn't SSE getting a lengthy refurb soon? I did a...

    Trip Report Family Fun in the Hot, Hot Florida Sun!!

    I would have rolled the dice on the mine train FP's. You got the worst of both - no mine train, and got wet. We brought our raincoats when we were there the week earlier and got good use out of them!

    Trip Report Family Fun in the Hot, Hot Florida Sun!!

    This is why my HM ride pictures didn't show up. I need to sort my magic bands by old & new.

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

    We loved the Moana meet & greet. At the time my older daughter would have gone wild for a Dwayne Johnson meet & greet. Now it would be Tom Holland/Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He can’t be at wdw, but can do at DL. I’d like a vr type experience where you see how the park has grown. This would be a...

    Next Gen Busses

    I think depending on reception of Skyliner, you could do Disney springs area to the front of Epcot. Solves both the overpass and guests going off trail problems.

    Next Gen Busses

    It’s about 0.9 mi, and you’d be crossing animal areas. French quarter to Epcot slightly shorter, about 0.75 mi. Would need to cross bonnet creek parkway and Epcot center drive. Bigger issue could be people going off the trails in areas they shouldn’t.

    Next Gen Busses

    The POR Epcot while short would require overpasses. I really like the ones at Disney springs! I’d need to revisit the AKL-DAK route.

    4th of July lines, as bad as Thanksgiving?

    Do you have a touringplans account or access to their historical data? We were there that week 2018. The weekend before wasn’t too bad, but week of got bad as you got later into the week. We focused on our fp, rope dropping and non-line activities: Void at Disney springs, my daughters shopping...

    Next Gen Busses

    This is a great point about the overall chain efficiency. Buses can be good ev’s because they can accommodate extra large batteries. You’re right about the stop and go, but the buses spend a lot of time idling, and I dont thing the efficiency of a Diesel engine to AC is that good. I’d still...

    You can plug your battery into the usb charger. One level of protection in charging.

    2019 Box Office tracking

    I grew up loving the x-me. Cartoon series on after school. I remember watching it while in college. I stopped watching at some point - might have been earlier than first class. You need to watch Logan. Not only one of my favorite superhero movies, but one of my favorites of all time. A...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    What are people’s experiences with the virtual queue? If you get there at 9, an hour after park open, when do you get into the land? How crowded once in? I’m debating going July 14th and wondering if it’ll be crazy.

    Who’s going to Galaxy’s Edge and when?

    No option for DL before the WDW version opens?

    Do reservations at Ohana ever open up?

    I think you can have them text you too. I’ve had good luck with them.

    What is the cost of an average WDW vacation for 5 days and 4 people?

    It's funny. I try to tell my mom as little as possible about my family's finances, but I'd feel comfortable being full open-kimono with my dad. Zillow can be problematic. I can't not tell my mom my address, so she knows what we paid for our house, and what houses around us are selling for. I...

    News TEA/AECOM 2018 Theme Index Released

    I should not have used the that pronoun. The gift-card GAAP measure is fine. It's the within company, among departments fighting to recognize revenue that bothered me.

    It pays to wake up early for ADRs!!

    Great time of year to be there. We braved Thanksgiving week last year and while crowded, was still a great trip. I really enjoyed the trail of trees at Disney Springs and enjoying the decorations at the resorts.
