    News Epcot Forever to debut as interim show before full Reflections of Earth replacement

    Thanks for the info. A bit unusual though, right? I can't think of any time in recent memory when Illuminations was outright cancelled at the last minute. Has this ever happened before?

    Disney names new parks leadership roles

    This made me laugh. First time I've heard that comparison but it works -- Chappy definitely has the same look!

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    I agree, MK desperately needs a new nighttime parade and for that I'm ok with a mere Festival of Fantasty refresh. But if a light parade doesn't get approved / announced anytime soon though, I fear they'll be running out of time to get it accomplished for the 50th.

    News Disney's Earport shop in Orlando International Airport now closed for redesign

    To my knowledge these 2 airport locations are owned and operated by WDW (and run by their merch team).

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2019

    Wow, haven't seen that video before. It was fun to see live music, ambitious dance moves, an army of performers, Goofy on a horse, and trees with actual shade in the Magic Kingdom! And back on topic, after taking a break from the Halloween party for quite a few years (we loved it a decade...

    Grand Floridian to MK Walkway

    I agree, I would hope they wouldn't use this project as an excuse to get rid of the water pageant.

    Grand Floridian to MK Walkway

    I think this will be a great addition, and am happy they're finally planning on doing this. My only question: why now? This was part of the original Walk Around the World plan back in the 90's but they obviously never completed it then. I'm just curious why they are finally planning on...

    News Annual Pass price increases June 2019

    We were planning on doing the same thing later this summer. At this point, it looks like it won't be worth it. Was planning to getting the APs for a trip next spring or early summer, but not sure that is going to happen. We've been thinking about doing a couple days at Disney and the rest of...

    Mobile Order expanding to Walt Disney World Resort hotel restaurants

    Seems like another great addition, especially for breakfast, which you could potentially order from your room before you're ready to head out for the day. Also glad to see it's offered at the Mara -- while I love the food there, the service in my experience has been very slow (at least it was...

    News Improvements coming to the entrances of all four Walt Disney World theme parks

    It is probably more efficient but I don't think it's likely. The screening at resorts was designed to alleviate screening crowds at the MK entrance, as well as make the monorail itself a secure area.

    Wilderness Lodge to MK and Epcot transportation

    We're going to back to WL this year. Last time we stayed there was about 15 years ago. For anyone who's been there more recently -- does anyone know what time boat and bus service starts in the morning? Just trying to figure out plans for getting to MK as early as possible. In recent trips...

    News Direct bus service to water parks restored.

    I'm so glad they're bringing this back! We've complained about this for the past few years since they've required the transfer. I'm glad finally someone made the right decision to bring back direct service.

    Somehow I missed that thread! Just saw it. Thanks for the heads up.

    News Tomorrowland love

    Completely off topic, but... is this still happening? We didn't get a chance to ride HM last visit. Is the spiel and stretching still starting before doors are closed? I know this was an issue, but I am wondering if this is actually part of operating procedures, or a result of CM's who are...

    News Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station closing for refurbishment

    Maybe they've finally actually paid attention to that fact, or at least took note of all the people posting pics of the horrible condition its been in. It shouldn't have been left in that state as long as it has been. This is a pretty inexpensive thing to fix. Either way, I'm glad they're...

    News Coronado Springs Expansion - Gran Destino Tower

    What do you mean by faltering? 1900 Park Fare is still tough get reservations for. GF Cafe is the necessary standard sit-down hotel breakfast fare and seems reasonably busy without necessarily needing reservations. The only one I could see that maybe isn't doing great business is Citrico's...

    Rumor Light Rail / Tram Link for Disney Springs to TTC?

    But realistically, that lot would sit across Floridian way west of the MK and transportation would still be needed from the lot to the MK entrance because it still would be at best a half mile from the MK entrance. They'd also need a bridge over the canal, massive, expensive road improvements...

    What would you like to see with the 3 new ships?

    I agree with this as well. We took our first Disney cruise on the Dream this spring and our small kids loved the Aquaduck and pool. But even then I was thinking it won't be long until they are a bit older and are looking for more options. When you compare to the giant water play areas...

    Rumor New nighttime show at Epcot

    I hope when this happens, they are at least thoughtful about it. Disney's approach to tree issues has been to just cut down any tree that they feel impedes view of night shows, but its the mature trees that add to the charm and character of World Showcase as we know it today. Not to mention...

    Parking at Walt Disney World parks

    Yes, they usually have to do this for one or both of my kids because the biometrics never seem to work. It's frustrating though, because it still takes a few moments to find a CM with an ipad who can verify the picture. Anyone remember the period in the early to mid 90's when photos were...
