  1. Today
  2. With the campers we stayed below the Mackinaw Bridge we used Indian River RV Resort and campground which was very nice, we did cross the ridge with just the car to sightsee and scout out a few spots then headed west towards Travers City to hit the dunes area which was fun and did a dune ride plus found some nice campgrounds. We also stayed around Ionia Mi and visited the Gilmore Auto Museum which I would also recommend a visit to.
  3. Rene and I are planning a trip to Michigan for next year's May trip. We haven't been up that way since my parents moved away in the 80's. The current plan is to travel the lower peninsula around the lakes with a side trip to the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village. After that it will be up for a day or two around the straights then through the upper peninsula. Finally to finish the trip we plan to go around Lake Michigan to visit with Rene's family west of Chicago for a few days before returning home.
  4. Same thing happened to us when we saw World of Color in April. We fight the crowds, get a decent spot, anticipate the start of the show and watch it die. Then after waiting a while, it restarts and finished. It was a decent show but VERY complicated technically. I can see reliability is an issue. Give me Happily Ever After or Illuminations (or its successors).
  5. Will do. We rode through the KOA some years ago. I thought the sites were way too close together for the most part. I hate sites where your table is 3' from your neighbor's stinky slinky. Greenbrier in Gatlinburg is nice, but it is hard to get a reservation.
  6. We're going in September. We usually stay at Big Meadows but am trying Little Arrow this time. Please let us know how you like Little Arrow. Big Meadows cancellation policy was changed to no refund of your deposit, so I booked Little Arrow. Figured I'd try it. The KOA there looks nice too.
  7. I have been retired since 2013 and we have traveled every summer and this has been the ONLY summer we got weather like this, not sure if it was the location choice or just plain lucky but trust me we have had our HOT trips where we did not want to come out of the camper.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Sounds like you've had pretty perfect temps for a summer trip! 🙂
  10. Welcome! And what Carol said. We've bought many tickets over the years from UT.
  11. Thanks Carol, looks interesting. Only 2 in Florida, Dade City and FT. Pierce. It sure is a lot less than the ones who come to the Fort. But.... Found their utube video I think the scratches came from another washer down Miami way. Interesting couple.
  12. Hi everyone, I've searched a bit and don't see any recent comments on this. I apologize if I've missed them. It's been a looooong time since we've camped at FW and we have a stay coming up. I'm discovering that many of the travel agents will not book park and meal tickets if you don't buy lodging through them and many will NOT book campsites. This puts us in a little bit of a conundrum. Can anyone recommend a place to buy discounted tickets, keeping in mind that I booked our FW campsite though the official Disney website? Thanks!
  13. Yeah, I also read that pathway is currently closed for brick removal, so oh well...
  14. I used my longer camper Allen’s and scanned the walkway. While I do see a bench for seating in one area I do not see any trash cans or other receptacles. If that is where it was I suspect it has been removed.
  15. When I get to Coronado today I took pictures from Ground level of the car they have there
  16. We have been on the road since early June and this past Sunday was the hottest day we have encountered, we have hardly had to run the a/c and the nights have been down as far as the upper 50's. We figure if we do this trip again the next time we will probably get much hotter temps. We leave Mi. Sunday to head down to Indiana where all the rv's are built and will be there for 4 weeks, we have a strong feeling the a/c will get plenty of use then. Michigan is a wonderful state with lots to see and do, being here this year gave us a chance to see how much there is so we are already to plan our return trip.
  17. To Jason's point - we had midweek reservations in October for F&W, so I just made a new reservation with the 20% offer (woohoo!) and canceled the other one. WDW Phone lines were busy all day yesterday. EMH at DHS this fall start at 6 am!!! 😲
  18. Especially when those other campgrounds generally don't allow for my need to take a boat to dinner.
  19. A few pics and a bit more speculation (oh and I do love the Earl theory)... https://www.disneytouristblog.com/disney-world-building-magic-kingdom-to-grand-floridian-walkway/?fbclid=IwAR3MIBxXyB_W-Lp070kxaZkPAm9igZBc__D8LHt8f_7_WEHXJT9dEjKIXgY
  20. We need to do that one year. It is beyond hot here in the south. Also comparing these prices of other campgrounds is starting to make the Fort prices look not so crazy.
  21. We are traveling around Mi. this summer, which by the way has been a fantastic trip, and have been scouting out campgrounds for a return trip and a lot of the very nice ones in the higher tourist area have been anywhere from $75-&110 for their level of premium full hook up sites. Even looking at Cedar Point for the trip home and they are close to $125 a night for our time frame.
