Re: Sleep over at one of WDW parks, where would you pick??

Sleep in one of the logs at Splash Mountain just like Cory and Shawn did in Boy Meets World Disney Episode. or how about the house at the dock by the loading area near the Jungle Cruise? or even sleeping in one of the boats on the Jungle Cruise? Great idea!! Those big cushions would make for a comf...

Re: You know you're a WDW nut when...

I was talking about Disney on the way home from school with my 5-year-old, and the subject turned to recently closed attractions. So, how do I get him to picture the one I'm talking about? Dad: "Remember the one where there was a boat and bombers were attacking it, and then we rode on a tram and we...

Maybe they just really enjoy it...that's always a possibility.

Re: Toy Story Mania only FastPass+ Accessible This Week

Disney is employing this tactic of trying to increase capacity by not adding in any new attractions, entertainment etc to keep people occupied. This is a test of the ride ability to operate as a FP+ only attraction in advance of the the addition of a third track, which is now currently in work. Whe...

Re: Off Kilter

Really love Off Kilter. Just how long have they been performing at Epcot? Maybe their contract was up and they are the ones who chose not to continue performing there. I know they have been there for many, many years, I just don't know when they first came to Epcot. I will really miss them when I fi...

Re: Ellen's Energy Adventure - WRONG!

OMG! I don't believe I haven't caught this before. Listening to the Requests Stream this morning, I hear the ride-through of EEA and that they're saying dinosaurs are the source of petroleum! KILLING ME! Petroleum is the result of marine plants and animals pre-dating the dinosaurs by several millio...

Re: Changes coming to Norway Pavillion

Wow, I don't even remember writing that post above, but I went back and checked. Sure enough! That might be a cool new thread. "Posts you've written in the past that no longer reflect what you think today". Bottom line, people affix memories to experiences, and if you visited the Norway pavilion (o...

Re: Changes coming to Norway Pavillion

Pretty much all of the pavilions suffer from the same "tour bus" viewpoint, they don't show life or even modern culture. Just old crap that people saw in movies 70 years ago and expect to be true. Well wait a second... it's true that the pavilions are pretty cliche in a lot of respects, but Disney ...

Re: Losing My Pixie Dust Desire

Many of you are going to be very :shock: about this thought because it's hard to comprehend such a travesty. My first trip to WDW in what I call the "modern era" with 4 parks and all we see now was in 2001. The girls were 3 and 7, we stayed at All-start Movies, and had a truly magical time. That tr...

Re: Losing My Pixie Dust Desire

In today's culture of immediate gratification, lack of patience, and lawsuit mentality, there isn't any way that people could have interaction with characters without a queue and schedule. I was EXTREMELY disappointed when I had tried to see Sulley at DHS, was told he'd be available at a certain ti...

Re: Losing My Pixie Dust Desire

The orderly queue is great, and it ensures fairness for everyone that would like to take the time to meet a character, but I miss the days when a little one would see Mickey or Minnie, or whoever, and have their eyes light up and then be able to run up to them and give them a big hug. I think that'...
