    Hollywood Studios Parking?

    The boys are of the opinion that they should be running trams to the bus stops since they are further away than the parking lots. The extreme distance added to our general disappointment in the bus transportation this summer.
  6. Thanks for the great ideas! Can’t wait to get there!

    We did dive with him - it was my first dive too. Since we were in the tank, we don't have pictures. We did buy the video and it was really worth it. When I look at it now, he seems so small. Hope you will report on your experience.
  8. Now I can't see it.

    My oldest son did Dive Quest back in 2004. He LOVED it. We were able to see him in the aquarium during his dive. If they are under 18, a parent or guardian has to be there with them at checkin right outside the park to sign the waiver, then you can enter the park, and if I remember correctly, they were in the tank about 1/2 hour later. We have the video somewhere (or my son does, we did some purging and giving away during the move).

  11. Sometimes You cant satisfy every last guest. My sister has taken my autistic nephew to Disneyland 3 or 4 times and says they are always more than helpful. ADVERTISING A district judge in Florida had ruled previously that Disney was accommodating the autistic visitors and dismissed the claims in 2016. The autistic visitors appealed to the court in Atlanta. Under the parks’ current program, Disney allows visitors with disabilities to get a special card giving them an “appointment time” to get on a ride after the specified time with little to no wait. The card allows them to get unlimited “appointment times” throughout the day and allows them to get on rides immediately if the wait is less than 15 minutes. Disney workers also have the discretion to hand out readmission passes to visitors with disabilities, allowing them to get back on a ride immediately. The plaintiffs said in their lawsuit that the autistic visitors still endured virtual waits, if not physical waits, that often resulted in “meltdowns” since people with severe autism often have an inability to wait and express distress at small changes to their routines. Disney previously had allowed visitors with disabilities to go to the front of the line but changed the program in 2013 amid reports of abuse by people without disabilities. The new program for visitors with disabilities, though, disrupted set routines on the order of rides and didn’t allow autistic visitors to go on rides exactly when they wanted to, the plaintiffs said. “It is the nature of the neurological disability that makes waiting an impossibility,” the plaintiffs had argued. The plaintiffs said a solution would be to give disabled guests a pass guaranteeing they wouldn’t have to wait more than 15 minutes for all rides. But Disney argued that solution was no different than its previous program which was subject to abuse when nondisabled visitors would hire disabled guests to join their party so they wouldn’t have to wait. In allowing the lawsuits to move forward, the appeals court said that the fact-finding coming out of the trials would help determine what is considered “necessary” to accommodate autistic visitors’ need for rigid routines and no waits. The judges said that Disney didn’t intentionally discriminate against the autistic visitors and that the question the district court will decide is whether Disney needs to modify its policies. In a statement, a Disney spokeswoman said the company is reviewing the decision and evaluating what next steps to take. “Disney Parks have an unwavering commitment to providing an inclusive and accessible environment for all our guests,” the statement said.

    I am full of good ideas. i hope it wasn't a mistake to share this one, as it wouldn't be so great for those camped on the 100 loop if too many guests did this. TCD
  13. Too late. The last performance was on Sunday August 19th. The TCD twins were there. TCD

    Hollywood Studios Parking?

    Due to the skyliner construction they had to be moved. I believe it is temporary but will probably be for quite a while.

    Where to eat Christmas dinner???

    Nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus, than some crab legs and mussels swimming in butter...! You could always check out the Cape May Clambake. We did that one year when we down for Thanksgiving!

    At Epcot she will see more species of fish in one place and time then she will probably see else where.

    I haven’t dove the west coast of Florida but I had a friend that did. He went to Venice and dove for shark teeth. I’ve never heard of any “great” dive sites on the west coast. With the exception of a few wreck dives. But wreck dives are usually not for beginner divers. I would recommend going down to key largo and diving John pennekamp Park. Most dives are 25-35’ and they will see tons of sea life

    My sister and her boyfriend are visiting in November and has asked me to look into Scuba diving in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. She got certified a few months ago. I suggested the Living in the Seas at Epcot as we are taking them to Disney, but I don't think she thought I was serious, or she doesn't consider it a proper diving experience.

    Do have any pix you could share?

    That’s awesome! Did y’all dive with him? Were you able to get pix from the outside? It’s just going to be the three of us so I’m not sure how we wil get pictures of us. I might have to call an old cranky ex-bus driver and see if he will be around to take some pix. Lol. I’m sure I will enjoy it as much as she will. I too am (was) an instructor. My first student was my DW. I quickly learned that you should never teach your loved ones to scuba. Lol. I think DD was about 8 the first time she got to breath off of my regulator in our swimming pool. She also did a resort course in Cozumel before so the class was more of a formality then anything. But she did say she learned a lot and she really enjoyed the experience.
  21. DH and DS visited the Studios last week and were shocked to be dropped off at a bus stop that was farther from the park entrance than both the parking lots and the charter bus parking. When they finally got to the entrance area all of the old bus stops were blocked off. Does anyone know if this is a temporary condition?

    My DS got certified at 11 (DH is an instructor) and did his first dive in the Living Seas - it was fantastic! Enjoy.

    That's cool
  24. If you like the movies then the show is pretty cool. Otherwise it's just a cover band playing old music and the humor in the show won't make much sense to you. I say watch the movies and go see the show.
  25. If you like music from the late 60's thru the 70's then you would've enjoyed the show. Like Jason said there was some sort of storyline, but it was the music and the special effects that made the show worth watching. The movie soundtrack was a couple of mix tapes that Star Lord had been given by his dying mother before he was kidnapped by aliens (you need to see the movies... ). He risked his life more than once to save them from destruction.
  26. The Guardians of the Galaxy movies used a lot of classic tunes. There is probably some story line but it’s basically a cover band and some people in costume.
  27. Instagram was full of clips from the Guardians live mix show at Epcot this summer. Now I know nothing about GoG but can someone explain the show? Does the singing have something to do with the movies (they are from a movie, right?).
