Re: Port Orleans Riverside and Magical Express

They mean the resorts like on Hotel Plaza Blvd. We've used DME from both Riverside and FQ before.

Re: Disney "Smells"

This may sound strange, but my favorite smell used to be the Beach Club luggage room....I know; weird. I'm not sure what it is, but there's just a nice scent that's always in there. There is a similar scent at the Grand Floridian due to one of the shops, but the perfume-like smell is overkill at tim...

Re: Main Street Electrical Parade returns.

DCA's EP has floats that TDL EPD does not - like Pinochio, Dumbo & the Circus, and the Patriotic Finale; while TDL EPD has floats that DCA's EPD does not - such as Winnie the Pooh, Monster's, Inc., Toy Story, Beauty & the Beast, the Swans, Bug's Life (now retired), and It's A Small World. The TDL E...

Re: Main Street Electrical Parade returns.

I've seen the current parade a few times since last Sunday, and was surprised by the score. The Baroque Hoedown theme is still played, but the entire soundtrack seems more...electric? digital? I don't know how quite to describe it. The individual floats don't seem to have specific audio as I was use...

Great Movie Ride is my fav. attraction in that park. I have to do it every time I visit. Each time around is different, because chances are you'll get a different tour guide, gangster or bandit, each with their own personal flavor.

I do not believe any of the dedicated DVC properties have great dining options or extra activities. Since this is a 'home away from home' and you have a kitchen, I guess they expect you to eat in your room all the time. Who wants to go on vacation and cook?? Same for kids activities. The DVCs that ...

I can always go for a sweet cream cheese pretzel from Tomorrowland. But for something nice and cold, just a Pineapple Dole Whip will do.

I have two favorites. I love the ballroom dancers under the tent, and then at the end the dancers in US themed costumes. But then again, Pete's Dragon is fun to see.

For anyone who cares...I went to Mama Melrose and actually sat in the waiting area for about 20 minutes just to listen to the loop. The song is called Walk of Life by Dire Straits.

When I was a CP working at Studios, I was speaking with one of my managers and a family comes up to us, and the mother asks, "What park are we at?" Or something like that. It's a wonder how they passed the signs and got through the turnstiles without knowing where they were.

It was band style. I remember it was pretty upbeat, and there's a pretty catchy melody to it. Don't remember any of the lyrics.

I've heard mixed reviews about it. I've been there once for dinner, and enjoyed it very much. I recommend the bread service and samosas as appetizers. The curry shrimp was also very good. The short ribs, I thought were a little bland though.
