Re: Breakfeast Buffet at the Captains Grill

The bigger problem, which is why the days of the theme park are coming to an end, is that they are super expensive to operate (at least domestically). In CA they have begun, due to state law, having to provide sick days for hourly workers, min wage will be rising to $15/hr, they need to perform 1.5...

Re: FP+ ends for parades and fireworks

I used the Android version last May and didn't notice any difficulties. That's good. I saw other people holding out their phones toward the CMs and complaining so I suspect I wasn't the only one with difficulties. Either way, we still had fun. Sorry, I wasn't saying you didn't have issues, just tha...

Re: Free wi-fi at all four parks!!

Just came back from WDW..and the free Wi-Fi is awesome..but for us at Hollywood Studios...seemed not to work very well..has anyone else noticed? I was on Wi-Fi frequently to use the WDW app, weather, etc. I didn't notice any problems in the parks. I seemed to always have good signal and decent speed.

Re: Subsonic Radio Might Be Down / Changes

If you all haven't yet, you might want to join our Facebook page. Even if you create an account just for that... it will provide a way to know what's going on if this site goes down. We all keep up with each other that way, although not by Subsonic nicknames. :) Find me on Facebook (Caryn Turrel) a...

Re: Memory Maker ~ now with video!

We got it and I have a feeling we'll do that again. The posed ones were ok, but it was great to get every ride photo - just remember to touch your magic band to your picture after the ride. My favorite picture of the trip came from a photopass photographer who was paying attention and captured a can...

Re: DHS Park Changes and Transformation

I enjoy the rides with my kids, then I come back after they go to bed and enjoy them again without my kids. There are very few Disney attractions that my kids like but I don't.

Yup that was all she said. We cracked up.
This wins. It's awesome when you get a skipper like that.

Re: Jungle Cruise jokes

I like the Jungle Cruise a lot. I have come to the conclusion that its not just the joke that is entertaining but the skipper who delivers that joke. Some Skippers are much better than others. When we were there back in 2012 there was a younger female Skipper that must have worked nights as a stand...

Re: Fastpass+

Ok, here's another fast pass question, but about Fantasmic this time. Does anyone know if you fastpass Fantasmic, does that just allow you to get into Hollywood Bowl faster, or does it also guarantee you will be able to get into it. We have dinner reservations for 5:30 and the only Fantasmic show t...

I miss them too. However, I've seen the new lumberjack show and I've got to say, as much as I liked Off Kilter, the new show is even better.

Re: What do you do with your Magic Bands?

I don't think they work for purchases unless you're staying on property. Ours didn't. I am pretty sure if you have a credit card attached to the MDE account, then you should be able to make purchases using the MB. I could be wrong though. I wonder if you have to consent to each MB online before bei...

Re: What do you do with your Magic Bands?

every MB is tied to your MDE account...and because of that will work as long as you have tickets tied to your MDE account So if you have 7 MBs from all of your trips...as long as the battery still works in all of them...you will be able to use any of them for park entry, purchases, and FP+. I don't...

You're welcome - sorry I didn't get back in time to answer the followup! :) But the answer is exactly right. Just connect them online. The process was very easy. I brought the tickets with us just in case, but we never had to get them out. The bands worked from the start.
