You also get the 6 months interest free deal, too. Not sure if that is all the time or just during a promo.

I don't think the changes really make a difference. It's still a nice cool boat ride in the heat of summer in Florida. Isn't that what is for?

a new hat on Main Street USA and just spirals from there...
I'm not much of a shopper, except when I'm at Disney. Then I shop like its the last time I'll be there! So, those reward points, 10% off and any discount I can find helpful,

WoD = $$$$$$$$$$. :roll: Trust me, I spent a lot of time and money there. I learned quickly how to make the most of both while in WoD.

Interesting behind the scenes glimpse of being a face character at Disney. Personally, I like how Disney has rules to preserve the magic.

I have had the Disney Visa card for years but never really used the points. Not even sure what my total is. I kind of got the card because...well because it was Disney. Check your points!!! The reward card will be great for your next trip, since you can use it at World of Disney. As an aside, if yo...

I think what you are calling "fluff" is really Disney's way of showing attention to detail and to entertain people on a variety of levels. Everything, in theory, furthers the entertainment and enjoyment of the parks. I want to see the attractions, but I also want to exeperience the "fluff." This pas...

I am the same way. But, I can't help taking that picture again. I love to compare them from year to year, too.

No, you're not crazy. I stayed at GC in '05. It was beautiful and conveniently located (great with small kids!). Great pool. But, WOW, pricey. If I go again, I will not be staying at GC.

Until its in the theatre, its all speculation. Disney, like any studio, makes these announcements knowing full well that a variety of factors can change whether its even released. I don't know, maybe I'm jaundiced here, but I wouldn't plan on anything until they start showing trailers. And the whole...

You know, I don't really care. There will never be a 6 Flags by me. For the most part, I can't afford "amusement parks" as part of our vacations. If I'm going to spend the $ on a family vacation, Disney is going to get my money.

Oh... such a difficult one. I have been to WDW plenty of times, yet only once to DL. But, I voted for DL. There is something very original about it. And, it seems to be the place where the best attractions and parades originate, ie Soarin. And, come on, no Stitch in Tomorrowland!!! And, POTC will al...

isn't funny how slow the ride is until you are trying to get a picture of the castle or are in the Space Mountain section of the ride. almost like the thing doubles its speed. And isn't that a challenge!!! Some of my best shots are during these moments. Of course, some of the worst are too!! Deep s...
