I find the estimated wait times to be Right on. You have to remember it's the time from when you enter the line (or the red tag get swiped on the pad) till you BOARD the attraction. Soarin has effectively 3 wait times. From entering the gate till you get to the turnstile, from there you then requeue...

Most of the resorts are about the same day or night. They have displays in the lobbies. I would say the GF is one you'd want to do in the evening, big tree, music, gingerbread house... As far as visiting, you don't say how many days you'll be there for. But I doubt you can do it in a day using Disne...

One problem with biggest resort for the dollar. The price is a sliding scale based on your pay grade. The higher your pay grade the more you pay.

I thought it was test track that was the longest, and the fastest (knocking out the monorail.)

I have to say someone needs to look at the crowd flow up and down in the land. I can't think of another place on property that is a constant traffic jam.

The non-disney pins, requires the CM to recognize and then care. :)

But Disney wants to promote THIER pins, not pins that 3rd parties made (most likely infringing on there IP.) Because it's a way to SELL pins. Since one of the trade rules is 1 for 1 (which makes it pin exchange.)

The problem is that several years ago Disney decided to drop the Disney Stores (aka the Mall stores) and only go with the large World of Disney Stores. They sold all the stores to A Childs Place (Another mall store chain.)

What about Jungle Cruise? Well the Butterfly at Disneyland's JC is only has a 1 foot wingspan. The one at WDW is a full 12 INCHES! I haven't been to disneyland since I was a little child. It's neat to know the differences between the 2 parks and their similar attractions. Is it really true that you...

Hey kcarts did you come to our wedding? :) 75 people at our wedding, reception was at California Grill. My only advice is if the event planners for Grand Gatherings are anything like the wedding planners, be sure to check, and recheck every detail. I've said this before nothing HUGE went wrong. And ...

Funny for me it was quick and simple. Nemo, the pixarization (if that is a word) of Tomorrowland is bad enough for the cancer to spread to FutureWorld, that is just the worst thing ever. Quickgold please don't take offense, but keep them in DHS. The studios just seemed perfect to me. I don't think I...

The ODPT database is umm... incomplete, and inaccurate. My guess is the issue is two fold (if you look at all WDW pins sorted by oldest to newest between 1990 and 2002 they have about 40 pins.) First off I don't know that Disney kept specimens of all the pins (before they started pushing pin collect...

Which Pin Database didn't you find it in? It's in the www.odpt.com (That is Official Disney Pin Trading, run by Event Services at Disney.)

But this looks like your pin

spodie , Ever hear of road rage. Someone gets cut off in traffic and and someone gets shot. Without being a doctor (of any time.)
