  1. I've seen a rumor going around the UK Disney FB groups that this won't apply to non US residents until 2020, anyone know if there is any truth to this?
  2. I will admit to considering this briefly as it looks like our November plans are changing so we won't be able to do the Christmas party, and we are deliberating avoiding HS in July due to the crowds. Then I looked at the price, I could get the FL resident water park after 2pm APs for only a little more than this costs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Also surprised about the cabins its not like that parking space cab be used by anyone else. Does raise a point about the overflow lot though, will be that be either moderate or value rate depending on whether you are in a cabin or campsite. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. That says campsite and doesn't mention the cabins, badly worded or do you pay to park at the cabins despite them having their own parking space? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. Was hoping this was just a rumour when I first saw this but looks like the more reputable sights ate running reporting this now. It looks like the only exemption mentioned at the moment is for DVC members which makes sense given how much Disney seems to be pushing DVC. FW hasn't been mentioned so far, would vehicles parked at sites be exempt? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. WBI went on a cruise and all you get is a video report!

    Thanks for posting this. Not sure if I'm brave enough to show the videos to my kids they keep asking to go on a cruise. How does the Disney Jr breakfast compare to the one at Hollywood and Vine? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Instant Pot

    I used to make my own wine a few years ago. I used glass gallon demijohns with an aquarium heater. With this method the yoghurt function works in place of the heater and the vent will release the gases produced. The stuff I brewed was drinkable, I bought juice from home brew shops though not the grocery store. Also I would think with this method you would still want to transfer to a another container for secondary fermentation and filter. It was a lot of effort for 6 bottles of wine, I did do one 30 bottle batch but that's more equipment. I may be tempted to try this for making hard cider, less concern about filtering and maturing.

  8. I know people who stay in the better Universal hotels just to get free express passes. We get the the AAP(Universal's equivalent of a DAS pass) for my son so not something I've had to make a decision on.
  9. Yep Pizza, Pasta and a salad bar that seems to be mostly pizza toppings. I was surprised that the restaurants were a lot more limited than at Legoland Windsor. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. The pizza/pasta buffet at Legoland is like this, and I think that's the closest they have to a table service restaurant.
  11. Glad we did BOG in January, not sure about the new menu my wife definitely isn't keen. We had friends visiting from overseas over Christmas and New Years, and she is a huge Beauty and the Beast fan, so I got us an ADR for dinner there. I enjoyed it not sure I would have done it again for just the four of us anyway even without the menu change though. I do think the personal dessert platter is a positive change, I was quite full and I'm not a huge dessert person and really should have gone for the lemon moose the waiter recommended if I had anything at all for dessert, but it was the first time there and you have to try the gray stuff don't you. The other thing that didn't impress me was the kid's menu, out of the four children in our group my daughter ordered the children's steak, the rest had the mac and cheese and hardly touched it. My son at least ears a lot of mac and cheese so this says something. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. I was debating doing HS July 2nd but think I'll wait until my next trip. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. New Beverage Stand

    They probably made just as much off me from the vending machine by the small pool
  14. New Beverage Stand

    Does the refill station at the pool actually close? I know it's open longer hours than the pool is. I really wish there was something by the smaller pool besides the vending machine.
  15. Rumor: 2018 Ticket Price Increases?

    Same here probably would have used it on the way back from resort hopping with an over tired child. Can see us using it next time as we potentially have my wife's cousin joining us and I can foresee lots of complaints about buses and walking.
