  1. All of Disney, or just the broadcast division? Either way its an eye-opener http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/24/investing/netflix-disney-comcast-market-value/index.html Netflix officially rules the media world. The streaming company is now worth more than Disney and Comcast. Shares of Netflix (NFLX) were up Thursday even as Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) and the broader market fell. Netflix's market value is now $151.6 billion. Disney's market cap as of Thursday morning was $151 billion. Netflix passed Comcast on Wednesday. The cable giant is now valued at about $144 billion. Netflix has added millions of subscribers around the globe for the past few years. The company's success demonstrates that its bet on original content -- shows like "Stranger Things," "Orange is the New Black, ""The Crown" and "13 Reasons Why" -- has paid off.

The company's success demonstrates that its bet on original content -- shows like "Stranger Things," "Orange is the New Black, ""The Crown" and "13 Reasons Why" -- has paid off. The company even announced a price hike for subscribers last year, but that hasn't slowed its growth. Disney plans to launch its own streaming network. But that hasn't hurt Netflix yet, despite the fact that Netflix airs many shows based on Disney-owned Marvel comic book characters. Competition from Hulu -- the streaming service backed by Disney, Fox and CNN parent company Time Warner -- hasn't really dented Netflix's growth either. Nor has Amazon (AMZN) Prime Video. In fact, Netflix is now worth more than every traditional media company. It had already passed Time Warner(TWX), Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox (FOXA), CBS(CBS) and Viacom (VIAB). Next up for Netflix to potentially pass are telecom and media giants AT&T and Verizon. Both companies are worth about $200 billion. The Justice Department has sued to block AT&T (T)from buying Time Warner. A federal judge is expected to rule on the case by June 12. Verizon(VZ) owns AOL and Yahoo.
  2. In the past, you could probably go to the other 3 parks and have them be less crowded because of the newest attraction at 1 park. But I'm sure with the new Star Wars land opening, all of the parks will have some sort of tie in to keep the crowd levels high. October 2019
  3. Take all this with a grain of salt. This was released on 5/21 https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/05/21/new-details-leaked-on-disneys-bold-new-space-themed-restaurant New details leaked on Disney's bold new space-themed restaurant Earlier this month, Disney confirmed new details on the upcoming space-themed restaurant heading to Epcot. Located between Mission: Space and Test Track near an area formerly used for Mission: Space FastPass distribution, the Patina Restaurant Group operated sit-down restaurant, which is currently unnamed, will be themed to a space station with large "windows" looking out to space and the earth below. Since then, various rumored details on the new restaurant have begun to leak out, most notably on the WDW News Today site. According to the rumors, Disney is looking to hearken back to old-school Epcot with the new restaurant. Guests will check in at a small waiting area before boarding one of two "shuttles" to take them to the dining room. These "shuttles" will be similar to the Hydrolators that The Living Seas pavilion used to feature. Video screens, similar to those found in the elevators during the queue of Universal’s Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, will make it look like the shuttle is traveling into space. According to WDW News Today, guests will disembark from their transportation shuttle and walk past a large wine cellar. Details are still sparse on this area, but it may include some type of robotic or other sci-fi features. The main dining room will have multiple levels, similar to Epcot’s Coral Reef or SeaWorld’s Sharks Underwater Grill. The multi-level dining room allows for all guests to have views out of the space windows. The upper level will be broken into two sections, with a slightly smaller east section and a larger west section. The 376 seats in the dining room will evenly be distributed between the upper and lower levels. A small bar with less than 20 seats will be located toward the back of the room. It will mostly be used to make drinks for diners. No details on the menu, name, or opening date have been confirmed by Disney. It’s believed that the new restaurant will open sometime in late 2019 or early 2020, around the same time as other additions currently in the works for Epcot and well in advance of WDW’s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2021.

    We did all 3 of the Lego/Orlando sites before our pass had expired. We got the Coke car on the eye. My wife and i and our granddaughter liked the wax museum. The aquarium was OK, had a couple of interesting exhibits. Wow a WaWa bonus! great way to end a trip.

    According to an article in TBO from 2015, the people that run this, used to run the Orange Blossom, until the owner sold it.

    Was that Orange Blossom Groves? Have you tried this place? Florida Citrus Country Address: 301 S Belcher Rd, Clearwater, FL 33765 reviews say they have citrus swirl ice cream
  7. Closest family beach to WDW

    Remember Google Maps is your best friend for finding great places to visit!

    Yay!!! You stumbled upon old Florida. There used to be tons of grove stores up and down Hwy. 27, and all around the state, where you got fresh squeezed OJ and all kinds of fruit based foods. They've been all replaced by StarSucks and McBlands.
  9. Rock Springs at Kelly Park

    We were just there for the days, didn't camp. No problems at the springs itself
  10. Rock Springs at Kelly Park

    I've posted about that park a couple of times. The tubing is great. We drove thru the campground. Looked nice, plain, there is a path to the park. It's about 40 minutes from WDW. You have to get there early, when they reach capacity they shut the entrance.
  11. Closest family beach to WDW

    This is a great park Lori Wilson Park 1500 N Atlantic Ave, Cocoa Beach, FL 32953 70 miles, hour 18 minutes and it has a toll road. It was free parking, they were talking about charging a fee to non county residents, not sure if they approved it.
  12. Pet loops

    It's Disney, don't all rules end at the check in lane?
  13. And SeaWorld Passes are a lot less $$$ than Disney. Not sure if they do the fun pass like Busch, buy a day, get the rest of the year, but unlike a AP, you pay for parking each visit.
  14. Sea World announced today that each visitor 21 and older can get 2 free beers every day May 18 thru September 2cd.
