    $100 million bonus for Iger facing bigger hurdles

    Not sure this link will work, I’ll try to find another if it doesn’t. https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-raises-the-bar-iger-has-to-clear-to-win-bonus-1543867631 He’s already received $25 million. This would appear to be incentivizing more short-term thinking, which will undoubtedly impact...

    Annual Pass for US residents

    Does anyone know if it's possible for someone in the US to purchase a DLP Annual Pass online? We've tried going thru the FR Pass Annuel site, but it doesn't process our purchase (We've already contacted the credit card company to allow foreign purchases).

    2019 Dining Plan costs

    I was just exchanging text messages with a friend/neighbor about prices for next year. Looking at 7 nights in June, the QSP is $210 per person per night (The DDP is $302 per person per night). To us, that's just ridiculous. Can you even break even with the QSP anymore? Even with ordering the...

    Room security and hackers

    IRL, I'm an IT guy. I don't deal with this type of stuff on a daily basis, but "cyber security" has crept into most IT jobs on a daily basis these days, so reading up about hacks, vulnerabilities, etc., is just part of my regular routine these days. I know many do not worry about physical...

    Disney, nostalgia, and the future

    Some thoughts and opinions that have been bouncing around my head for a while. WDW has been "running" on nostalgia since at least 2005, when Bob Iger took over as CEO, and possibly for several years prior to that. They are have been cashing in on nostalgia for years, as evidenced by the...

    April 2017 - ESPN Lays Off Around 100 On-Air and Dot-Com Announcers

    Sad news for many: http://www.latimes.com/business/hollywood/la-fi-ct-espn-layoffs-20170426-story.html Lots of on-air personalities were let go that were with ESPN for many, many years (and, thus, likely higher on the wage scale). Maybe paying the NBA billions and billions each year for the...

    My wife, who was down at WDW from last Thursday until today, said that she noticed several snacks had increased in price. Examples: Mickey Ice Cream Bar: Was $3.75, now $5.00 Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich: Now $5.00 Mickey Pretzel: Now $6.00 Does anyone more 'in the know" have more information...

    Cannot verify with two-factor authentication

    I recently bought a new phone, and the Google Authenticator settings for this site did not transfer over. Now, on my home computer, I'm being prompted for an authentication code. However, since I'm not registering for the first time I am not able to set up WDWMagic in Google Authenticator...

    Marty Sklar in Fantasyland

    Holy crap, my wife and I are in Bonjour Village Gifts and saw Marty Sklar!! Not sure who he was with, almost positive it was a couple of high level muckety-mucks. Highlight of almost any WDW vacation so far!!! Side note - He's definitely looking older, and was walking with a cane.

    On our way! Our first mom-and-dad only trip!

    We're sitting on the plane waiting to leave the gate. Next stop: MCO!! :) I'll try to update each evening if I can. Bonus: I finally get to be in a Magic Kingdom (at DL or WDW) on my birthday! My 40th this year on Sunday. Say, doesn't a famous mouse have a birthday coming up soon? ;)

    Something new for us.... BWV!

    We're booked at BWV (Preferred View) for 1/15-1/21/09. :sohappy: We had our choice of at least 5 DVC properties at that time, including BCV. The only drawback that prevented us from staying at BCV was that one night (the Sunday night) was sold out. Still happy about getting in there, though...

    LBV pronunciation

    Not sure if this is correct forum, but I'll start here. Lake Buena Vista: Is it pronounced - A) Lake Bew-na Vista, or B) Lake Boi-na Vista? This is to settle a dispute between myself and my wife. :)

    Can you walk from OKW to POFQ?

    The title says it all. :) Can you walk from Old Key West to PO: French Quarter? I don't remember if there's a sidewalk along the road that the PO resorts are on, but I know we'd have to cross the street at OKW. The reason - someone in our family wants chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast...

    Monorail switch track question

    Quick question for those who know: Where is the switch track for the hotel loop? I can't seem to recall it, or find it on the usual Google/MSN "Virtual Earth" apps. Thanks!
