Re: Music which is only time available - confusing!

Okay, this ages me. Working summer theater back in 1984 or 1985, when "Money for Nothing" was a big hit song, and it was played on the radio, many stations in southern maine (Berwick Playhouse was where I was working) would play it at LEAST twice and hour. We could listen to it on one station, chan...

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.

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

It looks like a lot of the "special" streams (Holiday, Dole-Whip, and Tangaroa) are gone and all that is left is Main, Future and Star Tunnel? The regular ones are still there, of course, Requests Hi and Lo, Scheduled Hi and Lo. And no WEDWay to be had (or heard). Will these streams return? Is it te...

Re: Music which is only time available - confusing!

Well, yes. This being a radio station, there is only one request stream for everyone to listen to - and every single request from every single user is therefore played to the whole audience. The "time limits" are in place to avoid certain tracks being played over and over again because that would p...

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!

Re: Ticket Prices and FAQ updated anywhere?

Yep - they have all the same attributes (park hopper, never expire, etc). Granted, they don't have a picture of Mickey or Minnie on the front, since the bands are just colors, but everything else that was info on the plastic tickets are on the bands. I am still waiting to hear from the Mouse Himself...

Re: DisneyQuest Questions

If you have an HD tv and don't mind the spend on a console (if you don't have one already) The Pinball arcade has tons of classic tables with regular content updates. You could also buy it on Steam (for the PC) but unless you have a massive monitor it is less fun. Thanks - I actually looked at a "p...

Re: Remember When... Epcot

You DO realize that it is BACON and MAPLE and Pretzels! All crunched (ha ha - pretzels crunch, ha) into one lovely delightful concoction. And Yes, it is 'murican! They will sell it at the 'murica ad-ven-turrre! I will report back, if I do not die from pleasure. The wife and I have taken out a second...

Re: Ticket Prices and FAQ updated anywhere?

Another question - we have multiple ticket types on the MagicBand now. Some single day, one park tickets, and a few never expire park hoppers. Any idea how the system decides which ticket to use when you enter a park? Or is it algorithm based, focusing on how many parks you went into? Just wondering!

Re: Remember When... Epcot

If you look hard enough, well not that hard, you can actually find the WDW forever stuff on torrent (or even dropbox) sites. If I recall, the buttons for the land were just the first and second floor buttons, which probably has been deactivated. I think one and two, at the same time, was correct. I...
