I would have to say... the very first time our daughter (5 at the time) saw the castle up close. The look of awe on her face... it made the entire trip worth it.

Any Warcraft players here?

My wife and I both play on Hydraxis (Horde) and were thinking of starting a Disney Fan Guild. Anyone here play Warcraft that would be interested?

(To be technical, we would be looking at end-game progression and instancing).

Lower bandwidth doesn't work due to it's still a memory issue. It gives me an extra minute or so, but when the memory dump is performed it interrupts the song for the Subsonic intro. But I am trying TVersity, I will post an update tommorrow after I get it ready. I attempted the quick and dirty insta...

Yeah, the problem is the memory available to the browser. Its a 512mb flash, so the streaming music just doesn't have the room, due to for some strange reason it can't delete the parts that have already played. So it has to do a physical memory dump ever 60 seconds, 120 on the lower quality streams.

Subsonic on the Wii...

Hello all! Quick question for those in charge of the tech-stuff. We have a Nintendo Wii, and recently found that you can stream shoutcast stations straight to the Wii, which allows us to put stations on our home stereo system. With Subsonic, the sound on the cd-quality stream is SUPERB, and our rece...

I've always wanted to stay in those... last few times we went cast members (especially from the college program) were staying there. Staying at Port Orleans, we can see them during the riverboat ride to DTD. Of course the chances of us ever getting a dvc membership is slim :( we can't bring ourselve...

definitely tommorrowland... It "seems" to be moving more towards "Pixarland". They need to do more "innovative" rides there, and replace the "tommorrowlad speedway". And stitch. Please. For the love of all that is holy. Replace stitch. But leave teh CoP alone!!! That classic must always stand there,...

I agree some of the attractions should not be themed to movies. They seem more professional that way. Not only professional, but a simple reminder that Disney isn't JUST movies, it's a lot more. And I agree they shouldn't have to tie everything to the movies... but they felt the update was needed, ...

So, there is no longer anything during the descent, just the touchscreens? (like that boy talking to the girl from japan, that is gone now? And the city that was shown spreading "communication" that went into that last tunnel with the dramatic music?) Can't go until late 2009 (hehe we have a baby on...

I have to say I think DIsney made the right choice. When it comes to things like this, it's best to jump on it and preserve the magic for the mass instead of accomading the few unruly people.

Now if only they could do something about all those unruly teens during the cheerleaders stuff... :(

We have only been to Disney World, and only twice in our current familial state :) but we have looked at all the resorts, and taking everything into acocunt (price, atmosphere, food, amenities) we actually like Port Orleans: Riverside the best. We love the atmosphere there, and while it is more spre...
