  1. Maybe. But how are you going to get your hot cider over to the Fort. No food or drink on the buses. How hot will that cider be if you have to walk? TCD
  2. Right on cue, the Disney Parks Blog posted an inane article about places to take social media photos around WDW: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2017/12/5-ways-to-fill-your-social-networks-with-holly-jolly-posts-at-walt-disney-world-resort/ This part has me scratching my head: To add a little extra jolly to your holiday, grab a hot cider and head over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground to snap a shot of carolers arriving by hay wagon. Hay wagon? Carolers? Hot Cider? Where? There hasn't been any hay involved with the wagon rides in years. And who are these carolers? And where are they hiding the hot cider? TCD
  3. Very cool. I know that they were the producers for the Ringling Brothers circus for a long time. It seems that they have carried on without missing a beat. Good for them. The logistics of operating these shows must be incredible. TCD
  4. I don't disagree with your observations. Kids mesmerized by tablets and phones are sad. But, my biggest beef in the theme parks are the parents pushing strollers while engrossed with their phones. They just plod along with their giant strollers in front of them, blocking traffic and running into other guests. I wish it was OK for me to carry around an air horn to blast right behind them to tell them to put their phones away and enjoy their time in the parks. TCD
  5. Absolutely right- MDE is a huge part of the problem. TCD
  6. I'm with you about the phone usage thing. But, I'm afraid it's a lost cause. I swear that over 50% of the guests you see in the parks are walking around looking at their screens. TCD
  7. Yes, that's the show I heard advertised. They are heading over to Orlando right after that: https://www.marveluniverselive.com/tickets Which makes me wonder about the 60 mile radius restrictions mentioned in the article you posted: TCD
  8. The WDWMAGIC site is reporting that the New Year's Eve Backyard BBQ a the Fort is now sold out. Mickey’s New Year’s Eve BBQ (SOLD OUT) – Mickey and friends invite guests to join in a rootin’ tootin’ celebration that includes a scrumptious unlimited BBQ feast. Bluegrass music and a DJ are sure to have everyone on their feet to ring in the New Year. The celebration begins at 7:30pm on December 31. http://www.wdwmagic.com/events/holidays-at-the-magic-kingdom/news/13dec2017-new-years-eve-2017-entertainment-line-up.htm If any Fiends signed up for this, I hope that you have fun!

  9. Classic. They add the ability to order one drink, and they jack up the price for the plans. Disney always wins. Call me when they have a refillable beer mug. TCD
  10. I'd love to read the actual contractual language some day. I recently heard an advertisement for a "Marvel Live" show that is going to be traveling around Florida next month. It sounds like it's from the Disney on Ice people. The commercial listed a lot of the Marvel Avengers characters. Since these performances will not be in a theme park, I assume that Disney has the right to license that show. TCD
  11. AK Changes

    This was all officially confirmed on the Disney Parks Blog today: 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas: New Show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to Feature Russell, Dug from Disney•Pixar’s ‘UP’ by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks Today, we’re continuing our 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas announcements with first details about an all-new show coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Spring 2018 featuring Russell and Dug from Disney•Pixar’s “UP.” Beginning just in time for the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom next year, this new experience will offer guests the chance to see Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug as they discover species of birds from around the world in their newest adventure at the Caravan Theater in Anandapur village. There will be “UP” close encounters each day with amazing winged creatures! As you plan ahead, we also wanted to let you know that in order to begin to prepare for the new show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, December 31, 2017 will be the final showing of Flights of Wonder. Until the end of this month, you can still experience Flights of Wonder at the park. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for future updates on the new experience with Russell and Dug from Disney•Pixar’s “UP” coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Spring 2018. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2017/12/12-days-of-disney-parks-christmas-new-show-at-disneys-animal-kingdom-to-feature-russell-dug-from-disney•pixars-up/ RIP Guano Joe.

  12. Season Pass Holders

    That's weird. I've always had servers ask if we're on the DDP, but never have one ask up front if we are entitled to any discounts. Next time, just save yourself the aggravation, and have the AP Card and your ID ready to show the server when it's time for the check. TCD
  13. Season Pass Holders

    You can get a replacement at any ticket window. I prefer to go to Guest Services when I'm already in the park- it's a nicer atmosphere, and I think the CM's are a notch better there. But, they say the CM's who work at the TTC are the most experienced and knowledgeable. Makes sense. That new Guest Services building in Disney Springs is also very nice. And, they converted that little gift shop in Liberty Square into a ticket office that seems to not ever be too busy. My AP cycle has us renewing passes in late December and January, and I would sometimes be told to keep using the card I had because new ones weren't printed yet. My current AP card says it's good for 2016-2017, and I got it in January, 2017. With the "free" extra month promotion they ran last year, my pass will be good through February. I guess I'll need to stop by and get a 2017-2018 card. TCD
  14. Season Pass Holders

    That's how I read it too. Obviously, the showing of the pass and ID at the beginning of a meal doesn't work, and that's not the way it's done, so why keep doing it and getting irritated? Show your pass and ID when the check comes. Problem solved. TCD
  15. Mobile Dining Ordering Starting

    I don't think it's the newness of the place, as we were allowed to go ahead and sit first when mobile ordering first started, and on subsequent visits up until recently. It could be that the place has become much more popular. But, your point about it being the only place to eat in Pandora is right. They must have had problems with guests just going in there to hang out. There are also signs posted now that say that the seating is only for guests eating food from the restaurant. They must have had an issue with guests bringing in their own food and drinks, and using the seating. TCD
