  3. Yesterday
  4. Up to the tower where you catch the gondola to MK? Sent from my handheld doohickie
  5. The elevator is in the 3000 loop, don't you remember?
  6. It just seems like such a waste of time and effort and they could put resources elsewhere. You could empty my wallet a different way....lol
  7. I sure hope that Coronado is upgraded like they are promising (as far as rooms and wifi). I have stayed there for a convention and I was sad to say I have never returned after that. Although I could have hit it on a bad day, who knows?
  8. 😂
  9. Haha..I want our site to have an elevator 😀
  10. Agreed!! Yes, we do bring breakfast stuff, so we can have a quick bowl of cereal in the morning, and we do cook for the grand gathering meal at least one or two nights, but don't cook any other meals on our trip. I sometimes would love to be able to pick up a bit of something on the dock on the way back from the parks, or nice slushy drink for a nightcap.
  11. Yeah, when they first set up the online checkin software, somebody actually wrote some code specific to the campsites. They recently upgraded the online checking software. Was the code specific to the campsites left in, or recoded...... of course not!!!
  12. When we are at the fort we are on vacation so we would rather buy food then make it.
  13. Sounds about right Don't know how my post ended up under pics? Oops!
  14. That's probably because they are using the Hotel software, I think it also still shows a " Near elevator" request.
  15. Now when on line check in comes up the time is 3:00, what's that about and when did it start?
  16. LOL - oh dear - good thing we never go near the place between March and November!!!!!
  17. Last week
  18. We always take our gear to the Fort. Seems like the folks on the courts are all friendly. You might even luck into a pickup game. Last time I was there, a father/daughter invited to play some games with a soccer type ball. That didn't last long. It's takes a lot of skill to kick it back /forth over the net. Welcome aboard
  19. Hi everyone! I've been chatting with some other campers here and they recommended I join this forum, so here I am! I'll be at the fort for the next 2.5 weeks (yay for extended trips!) and I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in hitting around/playing tennis! I'm ~4.0 player (USTA NTRP scale) and have been playing since 2013. I'd love to find someone to hit with here! Thanks and I look forward to being a part of this community!
  20. June, July, and August will see the inaugural Sweat and Stink Festival. You will get to melt and bake in the FL sun and humidity which will cause you to stink like a well used hog pen.

  22. I'm in. My DD and DW love elephants.
  23. 2 hours ago, twiceblessed....nacole said: This bugs me. At least they rented out the entire loop, so that was something however... you have to know that their noise spilled over into other campsites that were not part of the group I really think feel that large groups should only be allowed in the group camping area (especially with catering, a movie screen and such). If you want to rent out a loop...that's okaTy, but no more than 2 tents per site and none of the "stuff" that this group has/does. It bugs everyone - we've even been evicted from the 1500 loop when these folks have come in and told we have to move off our site while they are there. A few years ago three different site were comped cabins for the weekend to make room for these folks. Seriously ticks us off!!!! Which is reason number 2,011 why we werent there this year. LOL And by the way they leave a serious mess behind them
  24. Yes we're glad we were there this year when it was brand new. It's funny how we all talk about how quick Disney is to figure out a way to make things more expensive and monetize everything they do. One of the things we talked about was how Disney is trying to find all these long term events. At this point F&W is now starting August 31 and running till mid November. Then they will roll into Christmas. The minute the Marathon is over it will be Art Festival time mid-January right up to the Flower and Garden show which rolls to the end of May. All Disney needs to do is find something else festival like to fill in June, July and August and they'll have the food/wine/beer kiosks going all year 'round. They have certainly found a great way to turn us upside down and shake more out of our pockets. I'm sure somewhere, someone is being very well paid to figure out what they can offer for the remaing three months.
  25. It bugs me too. They need to write some clear rules and enforce them. What's so hard about that? The Fort has a group camping area. If that doesn't work for a group, then they should follow the same rules as everyone else. What's wrong with that? The problem here is poor management. But what else is new? TCD
  26. Yes, you're missing the point of this change. It's not for the convenience of the guest, it's to save Disney a couple of bucks by not having to run a bus from every resort to Blizzard Beach. More profit for Disney. That's what's important. TCD
  27. Thanks for all the feedback on my question. If all goes well we will do our best to make it to Eagles Roost since it is right at the GA/FL border and seems to be flat, easy to get in and out of and close to the interstate.
  28. Why would one want to go to a water park from a theme park or vice versa? When we used to go to the water parks, we would bring towels and a bag full of other assorted things like hats, bathing suits, sun screen, etc. Most folks visiting the parks are not going to want to carry all of that crap around in a theme park, then suddenly dash over to a water park... I would think that most folks are gonna be coming from or going to a water park from a resort. Am I missing something here?
  29. This bugs me. At least they rented out the entire loop, so that was something however... you have to know that their noise spilled over into other campsites that were not part of the group I really think feel that large groups should only be allowed in the group camping area (especially with catering, a movie screen and such). If you want to rent out a loop...that's okay, but no more than 2 tents per site and none of the "stuff" that this group has/does.
