Re: What have you still not done?

Last trip we waited probably 45-minutes to ride the new ride at The Studios and ended up being turned away when the ride went down. The ride was either down or a two-hour wait every time we were at The Studios. Hopefully, next trip will be able to go on that ride. I have pictures of the toys and gam...

Re: Spaceship Earth Wand or No Wand

Sigh. I loved the wand... and when it was the millennium the year "2000" sign. The Epcot sign was awfully nice and sparkly, too, but it was really special when the sign was the year 2000. Spaceship Earth just looks..... bare, to me, without the wand. I have some good pictures of the wand from differ...

Re: Haunted Mansion

I like the entire ride but have to say the funniest is the graveyard with so many different scenes to see and listen to, then when the ride is nearly over, you see and hear "the fat-lady sing", which is such a great inference that the ride is about to end! I rode the ride when it was an E-Ticket rid...

Re: Does Test Track Need Some Refurbishment?

There used to be a heavy weight "thing" (I don't know what to call it) that they'd drop from two storeys up. I'm actually glad it broke ages ago. It was so loud it hurt my ears. :twisted: I wonder if the queue gets less love because the emphasis is on the fastpass now, and fastpass riders don't see...

Re: Does Test Track Need Some Refurbishment?

I like Test Track but I agree... it is in need of an update. It is staggering how many of the items in the queue no longer work. And you're right; the preview video needs to be brought into the 21s century. The ride still breaks down a lot and it is quite annoying to wait in line for an hour then be...

Re: Buffering Question

I've had the same issues with rebuffering on my Mac using iTunes. I do update the iTunes whenever there is a new update. Today, when I was stepped away from the computer it didn't just rebuffer the channel changed streams from the live stream to The Horizons Stream. When I came back to the computer ...

Re: Subsonic Radio Updated Forums to PHPBB3

Hello everybody. If you haven't noticed SR went through a little downtime today to get an upgrade. We have now updated to PHPBB3. We've been frantically trying to get things working (yes, we could have QAed better on our side, but hey, free!) Let us know if you find bugs. Known bugs: Fixed - News o...

Re: Main Street Electrical Parade returns.

I wish they would bring some of the Japanese floats on a U.S. tour. From what I've seen online, they are magnificent! Are you talking about the Electrical Parade Dreamlights? That is the newest parade of all the electrical parades, and features some very stunning floats, such as the chesire cat and...

Re: Main Street Electrical Parade returns.

But from what I hear, it is only for the summer months this year. On a side note, Wishes will be replaced (also just for summer, from what I understand) with Magic, Music and Mayhem from the Pirate and Princess Parties. I had heard that ELP was more of a replacement for Spectro. I would really disl...

Re: At Walt Disney World right now!

Arrived this morning at Walt Disney World with the family for a little 4 day visit up the turnpike from Miami. Went to Hollywood Studios all day (I still call it MGM), had great time... not crowded at all! Tomorrow it's Magic Kingdom day; can't wait to go on the new Space Mountain! We have reservat...

Re: How do you get to Disney World?

We typically fly but have driven a couple of times - 12 hours to get there from where we live by driving though! :shock: A 12-hour drive is a walk-in-the-park! I wish! Driving from NE Ohio can take up to 20 hours depending of traffic and the time of the year. I prefer to take I-75 down versus the t...

Arete did a report on EPCOT more than twenty-years ago for a school project and one of the books she got out of the library as a reference was "The Unofficial Guide". It was an older version at the time, so we went out and bought the newest version and have been buying it yearly since. I give old ve...

Re: Dining Plan at WDW

Hey everyone! DH and I are thinking about a possible WDW trip (but it will be quite a while before we would be able to go) and I was wondering about the dining plan. Is it worth purchasing the dining plan? Hands Down the Dining Plan is worth it. My family and I keep track of what we spend on food e...
