The good part about this, is that I'm going with two newbies. They will really appreciate the show from that vantage point AND without having to wait.

I stay on property because of many factors, mostly because of the transportation with my kids. My youngest -- now 8 --- doesn't travel well AT ALL. I also firmly believe in the magic of Disney at the resorts. From value to deluxe, they all have their special Disney touches and I appreciate that. I a...

Don't do it if you are looking for a highlight of her trip. The Luau is entertaining at times, but the food is marginal. I went with my daughters and my parents and, while we had a good time, I think my 4 year old had the most fun. Although.... come to think of it ... they had unlimited pitchers of ...

I took a solo trip to WDW in 2005 and spent a lot of time searching for Hidden Mickeys. I took pictures of a lot of them. I don't think I have a favorite, as I find the challenge to be rewarding each time. But, I really enjoyed searching for the Mickeys on the Pangani trail and the Jungle Trek.

Mission Space, hands down. I'm a coaster freak and like intense rides. Test Track has no intensity and most of Mission Space isn't that intense. But, there is that moment, right before you lose gravity during take-off, that is very intense. I have to admit, at that very brief moment, I think the ski...

VIP Seating for Illuminations

We had ADRs for dinner on September 24th in Japan. Disney called us last week to say that the reconstruction wouldn't be finished by then. I ended up making ADRs in Morocco. Anyway, for the inconvenience, Disney is giving us VIP seating for Illuminations. I was wondering if anyone has ever had the V...

I love the background music! Probably like most people, I listen to your station while at work. It's nice to not have to mute my music while on the phone or when someone stops by my office. Thanks so much for your efforts! :mickey:
