    Disney Has Lost It's Way - An Article From The Federalist

    I remember the first time I stepped onto a Disney park, I felt like I had left the world as I knew it and entered a completely new place. To some extent I still feel that way (Pandora's great theme for example), but other times I feel like I've stepped into a movie theater. Or maybe more...

    Seems Like All parks to shut at 5pm Every day from now on!

    If you're Disney, why keep the parks open late (which increases operating cost) when you can close early and offer an upsell hard-ticketed "after hours" event (which increases income)? I love being in the Magic Kingdom late at night (my kids love it too), but I refuse to purchase an extra...

    American Adventure Issues

    I hate to be negative but this is one of those things that Disney has been slow to fix in recent years because there's "no return on investment". It's probably not going to significantly affect attendance in the attraction - and many first-timers probably won't notice or just aren't aware that...

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    My mind immediately went here :rolleyes:

    Does anyone remember the evening parade?

    Me too! I mean, they had some very good reasons to get rid of it but it was really cool. All the evening parades were really special for my kids when they were little. It was just so magical. I think that's why I get so nostalgic thinking about them. Seeing the evening parade and fireworks at...

    Disney Yacht Club vs Four Seasons, opinions??

    I hear what you're saying. Like I said when our kids were young my wife and I were nervous trying to keep eyes on them all the time. Especially with where the entrance of the slide is located as you pointed out. But that said, it's the best resort pool on property. I'm not even sure what would...

    Disney Yacht Club vs Four Seasons, opinions??

    Just throwing this out there... when my kids were young was when I really saw the value in my DVC membership. Staying in a DVC villa with lots of room is so much nicer than a hotel room when you have young kids. Is there any possibility (paying cash, renting points, etc) that you could get a DVC...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    Jai Alai is a delicious IPA. Kinda "old school" in that it doesn't attempt to be drinkable or juicy, it's just rudely hoppy - and I mean that in a very good way.

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    NO respectable craft brewer in America or elsewhere would use rice or corn in their beer. ZERO. Craft beer is about quality. The reason it DOES matter if beer is mass produced is because the quality sometimes takes a back seat to profits. Traditionally, corn and rice are used because they are...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    First of all, thank you for your service in the military. I would STRONGLY recommend you get out and experience some American craft beer. If I may... I'd like to point you in a direction to help get your started. Americans love IPAs (these days, especially New England style, which are more...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    Really? I've been to some breweries in Charlotte and I don't remember the prices being that high. But admittedly that was a couple of years ago. Here in Pennsylvania most microbrews are in the $6-$7 range. A 4-pack of 16-ounce cans (some of the best IPAs you'll ever try) is $18, so under $5...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    I totally agree - and I was at the Turtle Shack last week! You'll be in a park for a few hours (or maybe an entire day) but your hotel is your home for the duration of the trip. I'm not going to pay those prices for the entire week. If Disney is gonna charge theme park prices for the hotel, then...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    I agree - people were still lining up in Disney to buy $9 so I guess I can't fault Disney for charging it. But you won't generally see me in that line.

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    Absolutely - I agree. In fact I was calling Disney's beer prices "Ballpark prices". 🍺 I don't have hard stats to back it up but from my experience it feels like Disney has recently raised their beer prices to be more in-line with other tourist areas, while in the past the prices were a little...

    Recent Beer Price Increases

    I've been going to WDW for almost 20 years. As a craft beer fan I've long been aware that beer prices in Disney are higher than your typical bar. But I've always figured, "Heck... it's Disney and it's vacation." and I'd have a beer or two while walking around Epcot or sitting by the pool...

    Will Disney ever bring back late night hours at Magic Kingdom?

    This is probably one of my biggest disappointments with Disney these days. We LOVE doing late nights in the Magic Kingdom. We've already stopped doing our Fall trips because the Halloween and Christmas parties eat up so many MK nights. But I've noticed hours seem shorter the rest of the year...

    How could Galaxy's Edge go wrong?

    Reminds me of the scene in "The Big Bang Theory" where Will Wheaton attends a Star Wars film:

    How could Galaxy's Edge go wrong?

    That would be awesome if it ever came to fruition. Is it logistically possible? Is there enough room for park expansion? Parking?

    How could Galaxy's Edge go wrong?

    Also distract them from remembering how much they spent on park admission just to stand in this enormous line.

    How could Galaxy's Edge go wrong?

    @larryz - I don't think making a fifth gate dedicated to Star Wars is unrealistic in terms of the demand such a park would generate, assuming the movies going forward are quality and don't destroy what's left of the franchise. That said it's hard to imagine today's Disney building a new theme...
