  1. Oh and even if you use a travel agent such as myself you still have control, we just do the tedious work of sitting on the phone with Disney for you. Yes any changes or payments have to go through us after we book for you but we work for you. At least I do. I try to respond to all of my clients in as quick of a timeframe as possible.

  2. I liked the real old way. When you drove into World Drive just before the parking ticket booth, there was a sign on the right that would say that the Fort had campsites available for that night.

  3. Local Florida Union Says Some Workers Were Recalled It’s nice to deliver some good news on Christmas Weekend. And we’re pleased to post that a local union says things are looking just a little better in Orlando. https://mickeyblog.com/2020/12/26/report-some-wdw-cast-members-recalled-to-work/

  4. Yvonne, this is a difficult question to answer quickly. I think I'm gonna do a mini trip report because I have a lot of pros and cons resulting from this trip that I'd like to share. Unfortunately our annual passes expired at the end of our 2019 trip, and since we thought we wouldn't be back for nearly a year we didn't renew. So we were stuck paying nearly half what the AP would have cost for just a 7-day ticket. But what a wonderful time you will have not camping! Such a special time in your lives! ROFL! Gretchen, we had an accumulation of freezing

  7. The Magic Returns to the Village We are thrilled to announce that nearly 10 months from the day that we said goodbye to our last wish family in March, we will be getting back to our mission of spreading joy and creating the happiness that inspires hope for critically ill children and their families by reopening our beloved Village beginning on January 17, 2021. https://www.gktw.org/covid19/

  9. We went over to look today, but they closed at 3pm, so we will have to go another day this weekend. We did see the older pony running around in the outside pen. The mom of the new pony was in her stall eating.

  10. Not the new pony, but a friend took some cute pics of one of them the other day: https://www.instagram.com/p/CKAcB08htmp/

  11. We've thought about upgrading to a small diesel pusher in a couple of years after Rene retires. Normally we would buy new but are considering used. I expect to see fair number of 2 and 3 year old models with low mileage on the market for a decent discount after folks discover how much it costs in time and money to keep up an RV.

  12. Friday was our second MK day. And it was finally in the low 70s, beautul, sunny, not a cloud in the sky. We rode Peter Pan's Flight and Haunted Mansion, walked around awhile, had some popcorn in the shadow of the castle, and left. It was time for us to visit the horse barn. Wow! This horse's name is Owen. He was being groomed for an event at Golden Oak that evening. The groomer said he's young and a little hard-headed. He listened to her pretty well. She would say 'Owen, put your head down,' and other things like that, and he would do i

  13. Thursday was another non-park day for us, so we went to Disney Springs. We arrived around 11;00 and made our way to the second floor of the parking garage to get in the long line for our temperature check and then the security check. It took a good while to get cleared. There was a long line waiting to get in World of Disney, so we skipped it for the meantime. We had lunch at the Polite Pig and did the Christmas Tree Stroll. I took pictures of all the trees, I won't post all of them here unless someone requests them. Here are three of the most unusual ones. The Lion King:

  14. On Wednesday morning we had breakfast again at Whispering Canyon Cafe. i'm sure you all know that the shenanigans there have been discontinued because of COVID. Instead our server decided to provide his own entertainment. As we came out of the Cafe, we had greeters: Then we drove over to EPCOT. It was another really cold day. We got in line to enter the temporary MouseGears. The store is small. This picture shows about 25% of it: It's pretty much just a warehouse experience right now. Not the fun stop it used to be. But it was warm in there! This wa

  15. The next day was Tuesday, December 8. It was cold, cold, cold. Even David was cold. It was our Animal Kingdom day. When it's hot, AK is really hot. We found out when it's cold, AK is REALLY cold. And with all the shows closed, there's no way to stay warm without going from one restaurant to the next. We rode the safari, walked both trails, and ate at Flame Tree in the small sliver of sunshine we could find. Here's a few photos: DID I SAY IT WAS COLD?

  16. I thought Runaway Railway was great too, but David not as much. I think the long wait really got to him. It was so much easier for me since I was sitting in my scooter. The next day was another no-park day. David develops what to me is a weird affliction while at the Fort. He has an allergic reaction to the Disney bubble. The longer he's in contact with it, the worse his reaction becomes until he just has to escape for awhile. But to me, once inside the bubble, it's almost heresy to even suggest I extend even one toe outside that bubble. And we'd already ventured out three times --

  17. One of our favorites and you won't regret it, but it is a little noisy if crowded since the acoustics aren't the best.

  18. I think some of the TAs have a large amount of staff members that all start booking sites as soon as they open. So they do scoop up a bunch of reservations as soon as they can. I'm sure if Jason can get that lazy cat of his trained to use a PC, he could book more sites...

  19. Sadly, Gwen... yes. Millions in our country have handed over their freedoms and liberties, in exchange for fear. Common sense and educated reasoning has been replaced with mindless belief in the main stream media and many in our government. A virus with a 99.9% recovery rate for an overwhelming majority of our population. A belief that covering our faces not only does any good, but that it’s only about a virus. Businesses ran for generations by families, destroyed because we allowed those “in control” to have too much power. These same people will do as I’ve said for almost a year now...

  20. I am actually hoping to take advantage of the sell off that will inevitably happen when people get to go back to their normal vacations.

  21. I do object to the wording of giving all the sites to travel agents. Speaking on a personal level I work friggin hard to get my clients the sites they ask for on the first day of availability and throughout the year. Not a single thing has been "given" to me. The problem is the popularity of the Fort combined with, in some cases, the min/max booking system.

  22. What a dumb article. Why should Disney push forward with spending millions of dollars on new attractions when the pandemic remains uncontrolled and there are no signs that travel will be returning to normal levels for a long time? I hate what is happening as much as the next guy, but Disney is shrewdly doing what it needs to do to weather the storm. TCD

  23. Thank you Rennie, Themepark, and Ivy, for going along with me for as long as my hand will hold out for this trIp! I don't often take selfies, but this one sums up our trip pretty well: Anyway, we had reservations to arrive on November 15 and leave on December 15. But because we couldn't buy an annual pass and also because of the restaurant situation, we decided to move our arrival date up to November 29. We arrived early that morning and after a bit of wrangling got assigned to 706, which is our new favorite site. We spent that day and the next six wandering around th

  24. A feel good story... With nearly 20,000 Walt Disney World employees laid off this year, we've heard heartbreaking stories about cast members desperately seeking food and shelter, while Mickey's stock price (and executive compensation) soars. But despite the dire situation, there are still die-hard Disney employees spreading joy and inspiration on their own time, just like Walt would have wanted. Chief among them is entertainer Billy Flanigan, a 39-year veteran of WDW's stages, who spent his furlough pedaling around Central Florida and across the country, delivering musical "Fl

  26. I haven't seen this mentioned. The OSBORNE LIGHTS went to GKTW and they have been doing a Fund Raiser. It has not been advertised on TV or anywhere else that we have seen, but we just got tickets for the last day. Just found out from one of the volunteers who live in our park. They are limiting attendance and masks are required. Hope to post pics after we tour. The Holidays Like Never Before November 13 - January 3 Celebrate the splendor of the season with us at our newest, sparkliest event: Night of a Million Lights!https://www.gktw.org/lights/

  27. The touring plans site was the only one I could find that showed the actual sites. I can work on it down the road.
