Re: Pirates of Caribbean Update - Any Info?

I want to say I heard they turned off the mermaid projections in the water. They either weren't working properly...or they were seen as a waste of money/maintenance since most guests never realized they were there.

Re: You know you're a WDW nut when...

When you move to a new house...and you ask your DS (almost 4 years old) what his "favorite PART of the new house is" and his answer is:

"Disney's Animal Kingdom Park"

I think he's watched "Must Do Disney" a few times. :lol:

Re: Disneyquest to close

Disney knows that they make the most bang for their buck from dining and merchandise. That is why Disney Springs is what it is today. In terms of atmosphere, it is light years ahead of where it was 10-15 years ago. The area felt very dated and it didn't really offer you anything on par with what the...

Re: Disneyquest to close

I don't think anything at Disney Springs is run by Disney other than the obvious merchandise locations. So it would make sense for the NBA to own and operate whatever they create there to replace DisneyQuest.

Re: License plates and other car embellishments

Very cool sticker!

DW and I see a lot of the "AP" and "DVC" stickers around town and it makes us long for the day we can have one as well.

Re: License plates and other car embellishments

I can't remember if I posted it here or not...but we got a plate that we were happy with.

WDWFMLY

It's on my car now, but once we buy a van either later this year or next year it will go on that. That will be our vacation car too...so it'll be what we take to WDW.

Re: DVC Disney Vacation Club

Sorry I am just now seeing this... I know that several years ago, anyone staying at BLT or any DVC owner who could show their DVC card could get into the Top of the World Lounge. Once Magic Bands took over, I believe the policy changed to you having to show your DVC card. This is now the policy for ...

Re: Free Meal Dining Discount for Summer 2016

I saw this deal...and it's borderline laughable. But you have to look at everything involved to make a real judgement on it. First off, it's for Value Resorts, so the difference between full price and discount is minimal compared to other Disney resorts. Second, you are forced to book a package just...

Re: DVC Disney Vacation Club

I'm not a DVC member YET...but DW and I do hope to become members someday. My first introduction to DVC was back in 2007. Some friends of mine and I had just signed up for the 2008 WDW Half Marathon. One of our friends is in the Army and had just gotten back from a tour in Kuwait. We knew we'd save ...

Re: YAY!

Thanks to everyone who worked hard to get the forums back up and running! I have a few friends heading down to WDW this weekend for the races and I need some Subsonic to help with my withdrawals. :)

Re: License plates and other car embellishments

yeah they said they would refund us if we went with the normal plate, but I'm sure that would take a while since it's the state and although they are quick to take your money, they aren't as eager to give it back

I'll definitely do a search to see what we can come up with...thanks for that tip!

Re: License plates and other car embellishments

We had to change DW's name on her car title to her married name and add me to it as well...so we decided we might as well get the car tag changed while we were at the courthouse... we decided to change it to "DSNEY" as we had 5 characters to work with it should be in sometime within the next severa...

...Considering they are designed for the buildings at the Studios, likely not easy (or cheap) to retrofit somewhere else. Maybe they'll show up for sale and I can deck out my neighborhood...

Re: 2015 is last year for Osborne Lights

Since it's just a bunch of lights and a few moving pieces...Disney could technically put it anywhere they wanted. I think I saw someone somewhere say they could put it at Wide World of Sport and maybe even make it a hard ticket event. The plus of having it in a park is that it forces people to go to...
