Trip Planning after Shanghai opens

Hello! I'm looking to do a round-the-world Disney trip once Shanghai opens. Is there any sort of general ticket media that would work for ALL locations, or am I stuck buying individual tickets, reservations, etc. Has anyone had any luck going through Corporate on this, or perhaps through shareholder...

Re: DisneyQuest Questions

Well, back from the world. MK arcade near Space Mtn has 4 pinballs, which I do NOT remember and did NOT play. Seems all the hype about magic bands is somewhat "early". You can NOT use them to obtain change for the arcade machines. Nor can you use them to purchase park admission. NOR can they be used...

But that's every day when stuck in the office! No need to celebrate those!

Now, things like International Pancake Day and so forth - great for free pancakes. And no need to send anyone a card!

Re: DisneyQuest Questions

Hey There! Happy Monday! My hobby is collecting and restoring pinball machines, and I was hoping that maybe they have a good selection? :idea: I bet you really enjoyed when the Penny Arcade was on Main St. It was full of old (authentic) pinball machines and those nickelodeon viewers. Old skee ball ...

Re: Returning Streams: Main St, Future Land, Holiday, etc...

Will these streams return? Is it temporary? Is it because this is a Saturday? Who knows - maybe someone does and can let us know what is up? They had to be removed because of lack of bandwidth, technical issues and the likes, but will be back. Don't know when that will be, though, only BleuLlama ca...

Re: DisneyQuest Questions

I was at DisneyQuest this afternoon. There are ten pinball machines located on the fifth floor I will upload pics when I am back in Germany. Thank you! The official note I got back told me that they could not tell me if they even HAD any machines, much less which ones. That is poor guest relations ...

Re: Ticket Prices and FAQ updated anywhere?

Follow-up... I heard back from the Mouse today. I had asked how it works if I have single park tickets, park hoppers, etc all loaded on one band. The Holders of Entrance replied: Dear UNCLESCROOGE477, (I had to change that. Didn't want ya'll to know my name is Bob. Whoops!) Thank you for contacting...

Re: Earning More Points?

The fun comes when you start filling up that "hollow" mickey on the right of your post, and then you can see how close you are to jumping up a Ticket level! Really motivates you to post things. And it is lots of fun to see what your "title" is as you post, and post, and post! I did enjoy filling up...
