    In a Small World After All
  1. WBI went on a cruise and all you get is a video report!

    I think so but I'm not 100% sure. I wandered all over the ship on that trip and it was 3 years ago. I do remember popping out in the buffet also, and I doubt I went up to 6 and then back up the hallway so it was probably from 5.
  2. "Artemis Fowl"

    My boys loved those books. Too old now but maybe they'll see the movie anyway.

    We were on 5 aft, I just looked back and our room numbers were 5633 and 5635. I really liked it. Few rooms on the hallway so not a lot of traffic, and I liked being near the theater. And near the theater bathrooms when the stateroom bathroom was occupied. I remember using the secret stairs but sorry can't remember how far I went on it. Plus that was 3 years ago.
  4. I'm assuming they ask at check in if you have a vehicle. Then they give you a pass to put on the dashboard with the checkout date written in red marker. And add the charge to your bill. And then patrol the lots looking for cars without passes on the dashboard.

    I love the Wonder. I just liked the size and feel of the ship better than the Dream (my only other Disney cruise). In December 2014, my husband and 2 sons left to meet up with the 5K group. I did a couple of things and then left the ship to watch them finish. I left a little later than I'd planned and was worried I'd miss them so I power walked to the start/finish line instead of taking the tram. They weren't there yet and there was only a small crowd so I stood around for 5 minutes or so when the race group walked up to start the race! So, they definitely were letting non-runners off the ship before the 5K group that day.
  6. I also think it's a difficult story to adapt to the screen. And I have to say that I have no problem with Oprah, but she is one of those people who I have a hard time seeing as a character rather than herself playing a character. Some actors can be absorbed into their roles and some you always see the actor in the role and it's distracting. I don't know if this is result of talent/lack of talent or what. But that was my thought when I saw her in the previews.
  7. LOL, you know what they're thinking (if it turns out to be true): $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
  8. Since this is the type of thing that fascinates me, I read the website and the manual. Love the number of times the words accessories and elite are used. Those must be proven parent buzzwords. Teal costs $50 more than gray, black or purple. That's obviously a mistake since purple is definitely the premium color of those four. What I was looking for was a picture of a child actually seated in it shown from overhead. I'm guessing the child has to sit, in the harness, with his legs stretched out in front of him. Not hanging like in a stroller. I'm guessing few children want to sit like that for very long. But the instructions say a child should be harnessed when in the "stroller" and should not stand up -- so ignore the photo on the web page of a child obviously standing in the wagon. The instructions also say maximum of 45 pounds per child and 110 overall, no more than 2 children. Then the video shows a girl who I'm pretty certain is more than 45 pounds climbing in and strapping herself in as her mother tells us how wonderful the product is. The only time I took a stroller to WDW it was a double umbrella stroller for my almost 3 yr old twins and 5 year old. They rotated sitting in it. That was an awesome stroller and easy to fold.
  9. I use Google Maps street view to "go" a lot of places. I find it entertaining and stress relieving -- a brief mental vacation. I recently "went" to seaside areas of England that I was reading about in a novel. I also occasionally go back and "visit" my childhood home and town, which is many hundreds of miles away from where I live now, although that usually makes me a little weepy. But overall one of the positive uses of the internet! I can't wait to "visit" the newer areas of WDW.
  10. Indiana Jones Land?

    I say combine the two and rename it Harrison Ford land. I'd be first in line for that !
  11. Or one could get 2 GAGs (16 pieces of chicken!) per person ! We ate lunch at BOG because I wanted to see inside and I enjoyed the meal (it was more than enough food). I'd do this for dinner if someone else was paying.
  12. Instant Pot

    I got my on Amazon about a year and a half ago. It came with: "Accessories include, stainless steel steam rack with handles, rice paddle, soup spoon, measuring cup, condensation collector and recipe booklet."
  13. Instant Pot

    What I'm calling the trivet, you may call the metal steaming rack that I think comes with all Instant Pots. I like fancy words
  14. Instant Pot

    Cup of water. Pound of frozen ground beef on the trivet. 20 minutes then quick release. Ground beef for tacos, spaghetti sauce, whatever. I usually end up needing to pick up someone from rehearsal or practice when I'm in the middle of cooking ground beef in the skillet so this is a perfect solution for me.
  15. Disney Wonder gets most.love.

    I like the size of the Wonder / number of people it holds. My only comparison is the Dream and when we cruised on the Dream it was early December and not at capacity so probably the same number of people as our Wonder cruise which was Christmas week at capacity. Personally I don't think I'd like a bigger ship.
