    Cinderella Castle Refurb and opening

    I can't seem to find anything related to the reopening of Cinderella's Castle. I am assuming it reopened on March 6th but no one has said anything about it. Does that mean that nothing was changed or added and they were just sprucing up the place? If there is a thread I missed related to this I...

    Our biennial journey inside the bubble

    We visit WDW every two years. Each trip is more than a vacation, it is a chapter in our lives providing memories and structure to the history of our family. We can look back and see the kids from strollers through high school and now college. Our WDW vacations have become the stratigraphy for...

    Is it me or are they de-smellifying WDW?

    Got back from a wonderful trip to WDW the first week of the year, but it seemed like there were a lot of smells missing. Of course there was no smell of burning Rome, but there was hardly any smelliness in Philharmagic...Soarin seemed to be pretty low key on the smells and then no stink in Tough...

    We are going to the stay at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge for my son's graduation (thanks Pam for setting this up!). Anyway, we want to do something special upon arrival.

    getting contact information for the guest service manager of Saana

    While at the AKL lodge a few weeks ago we had an excellent dinner at Saana. The server was great and the food was as well. We like things spicy and the chef was able to really put a little fire into our dishes. We were particularly impressed with the wine flights put together to enhance the...

    Pwani View Guest House

    I could not find a thread on this- Jack Spence posted a very nice blog entry concerning the new owners of the Safari View Guest House. This is the type of attention to detail and narrative that makes Disney so unique...

    No walking trail between AK Lodge and AK. Why?

    One of the things we have enjoyed doing when staying at the Boardwalk or the Yacht Club is walking to EPCOT, but also walking along the water to DHS. I was wondering why there is no walking path between the AK Lodge and the AK park. You would think that would be the perfect place to have a...

    How are crowds during the first week of June?

    We are going to WDW from May 31st- June 7th this year. So we will be arriving the week after Memorial Day. Guidebooks suggest that there is a significant drop in attendance during that week, however, I am a bit skeptical. If you have been to WDW the week after MD could you please let us know how...

    Disneyworld Saints fans

    I am a huge Saints fan and I can't help but notice it looks like there are a few other Saints fans that are also into WDW and Disney culture. It would be nice to see how many Saints fans are actually wdwmagic members, so please respond and let me know if you are one of that special breed of...

    Hoop DDR to close in Jan/Feb 07?

    I just heard from Pam at KK that she couldn't get reservations to the HDD for my January 07 trip to the world. The CM she spoke to thought is was going to be dark during that time. Anyone have any information on this before I decide on replacing the HDD with another show/dinner? thanks PE

    Reserved seating and Fantasmic DP

    A quick question. If you have the FDP and show up to find there are better seats available then the ones in your reserved section, can you take those seats? Or, are you restricted to only taking seats that are in your reserved section? thanks

    From Yacht Club to Hoop Dee Doo Revue

    The family wants to do the HDDR this year, but we are staying at the Yacht Club. The logistics seem a bit daunting (was oh so easy from the WL!). So, I am asking if anyone knows the best way to get back and forth from the hotel to the revue and has any advice or experience with this particular...

    Disney Language Question- Meet and Greet

    I have a quick question about the phrase (and related Disney Behavior) "Meet and Greet." Is that a bit of Disneyese or did they get the phrase from somewhere else? The reason I ask is that I was listening to NPR yesterday morning driving up from New Orleans to Jackson MS and there was a story...
