Fast pass is a great idea and could be made even greater if you could hold two or three at a time

Re: The Hat - MGM

You know the one, Mickey's huge Sorcerer Hat that was dumped there for the last celebration. I can't be the only one out there that thinks it is a lousy addition to that area - it would fit better somewhere else, just not in the middle of Hollywood! They do a great job building the atmosphere and t...

I was usually the designated driver around the world. Once I tried to eat around the world while my alcoholic friends were drinking and it was almost worse and just as expensive.

Our family used to stay at the Polynesian whenever we would visit Disney World. It's one of my favorites! The relaxed atmosphere and lush surroundings make it like a little paradise amid all of the fun hustle and bustle that WDW can be. I recommend any room with a lagoon view or garden view. Lagoon ...

Mostly paper for me. Being an artist I'm really into graphic design and printed stuff. Park maps, tickets, attraction posters, books and magazines, lithos and prints. But I also collect other stuff, classics pieces, the old Marx Disney toys some PVCs.

I have been affected by someone who was doing something that shouldn't have been done. To this day, I thought it was great. Back in High School, my friend and I were on the Skyway and person yells, "Hey!" We look over and this attractive, college-aged, female flashed us while exclaiming, "Welcome t...

You know I think they are still sold at some of the parks but not all of them. I have one from Disneyland that is fairly recent but the absolute coolest one, which I just picked up, is from Tokyo Disney Sea. The illustrations are fantastic!

I have a few of the pieces and agree, they are fantastic, especially the castle, with the lights on! Amazing! I've heard from a friend, who has all of the pieces and knows Olszewski, that they will eventually do all of Disneyland! Have you seen the Haunted Mansion or Pirates pieces? They each have s...

Some of these programs or similar ones run on the HD channels and are awesome! I've been spoiled by HD, can't get enough!! I did catch the cruise line show, which was nicely updated from the one of a few years ago.

I think the park could have been really cool. I wasn't terribly crazy about the idea of location though, right near actual Civil War battlefields? What's the point there? Does Disney really need to draw business away from a national monument? They should build the America park at WDW, there's certai...

Beaker nailed it! That skier in Soarin' cracks me up every single time. I also like when the Star Tours pilot... aka. Pee Wee Herman says "... and I'm still getting used to my programming". How about the cheesiest line? In Great Movie Ride, the narrator says in a super serious voice... "This is Alie...

The daily park maps are cool and great mementos of visits but I really like the big fold out maps they used to make and update regularly. So I collect both! Probably my most favorite map is one from the first few years of EPCOT. It has one of those little wheels inside that you can spin and find all...
