Re: What do you do with your Magic Bands?

Disney gave me the option to "Decline" them. And now I have a moral quandary between wanting to reuse my current bands, but also wanting more red and green bands for our Christmas tree... Yep, I keep wondering if I should decline. I already have two from January when the system hiccuped and sent me...

Re: Best Non-Breakfasts?

...Will this be your first time trying Be Our Guest for breakfast? That looks like the best meal to me there, although I'm curious to see what the portion sizes look like as it sounds a bit expensive for what is offered. Yes, and yes, it does seem expensive for a breakfast, but we shall see what th...

Re: Best Non-Breakfasts?

I thought they had some more traditional African food at the buffets. It would be nice if they had a small selection anyhow. There was some sweet basmati rice and and sweet plantains. There was a place for bobotie but it was empty both times I passed by. Next trip, we have reservations at Be Our Gu...

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

I kinda wanna see the inside of the queue area, so if I can get there immediately after on my trip, I might hop in line to see it and observe the queue behaviors, ya know, in the name of "professional research." Anna and Elsa photos are pretty big deal for some of my clients so relating a personal e...

Re: Best Non-Breakfasts?

We did breakfast in the condo last trip (bagel and cream cheese from the on-site store for me and Dad brought his own oatmeal & Raisin mix) except the one morning we went to the Tusker House. I was so disappointed by the traditional American breakfast foods. Nothing to represent how Africans break t...

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

Most of my family's fast passes have been selected! Still working on the Anna and Elsa character meet, but I"m sure that is crazy hard to get into. I should have known to wait until until midnight for that one! We will see once we are in the park how long the waits are! I wonder how the stand-by ti...

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

I'm hoping so. We will try to plan for a couple early mornings at MK, so we could get in first thing to meet them. My niece will be thrilled. Anyone know how easy it is to get more fast passes the same day? As soon as you use up one, are you usually able to snag another? I think you still have to w...

Re: Rehabs and closures list?

I heard that Pirates is going to be closed for rehab for a couple of weeks in September, supposed to open back up on the 30th. Do they ever finish these things early?? We are going on the 29th and the 30th and I'd be so upset if Pirates was closed... Whoops, I posted WDW info...edited to swap in DL...

The US 101 and I-405 interchange is routinely ranked as the worst bottleneck in the country and I gotta get thru it to get from home to DL.

I'm about 225 miles north of DL. A mere 4 hour drive without traffic...so more like 6 hours on an average traffic day.

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

I should probably get a trip to DL on the calendar soonish...I wanna see the Jubilee stuff but not til after the craziness of the summer crowds are gone. Maybe a mid week October..even though I'll have just gotten home from a week at WDW. But you can never have too many Disney trips planned, right?

Re: Rehabs and closures list?

Looks like DLR only posts out 2 months now, so there you go. The only usual closures are stuff for holiday overlays. OK, looks like I will have to wait until the end of July to see about the end of September closings. Thanks. I'll keep an eye on the DisneyTravelAgents website too and when they upda...

You're welcome. Looks like all the massive 2014 closures were to make sure the jubilee celebration is as full as possible. I'm gonna try to sneak down in the fall.
