  1. Last week I was finishing planning our upcoming Florida trip and went to the My Disney Experience site. I entered the first week of our trip and we are in the Fort, October 24 thru the 29th! First time in 3 years we've been able to get reservations. We cancelled the RV park we were in for those dates and changed the other reservation we had to match. Wow! I guess it pays to never give up!

    At the Fort now

    We were put in the 300 loop for this stay. As of today I am walking around and I would say 3/4 of the sites are empty in our loop. All sites are extremely clean everything is well-kept and in working order here.

  5. Ok not sure if we will do parks or maybe venture to that Universal place but either way a week in Feb away from the cold of the north east is still a WIN 😎

  6. Thank you for posting this story. What a wonderful life, which she tells us she was still enjoying in the interview at the end of the story.

  7. The claims they are making about how this app will help guests are ridiculous. It’s bad enough that they are price gouging again, but what makes it worse is that the damn app will be just as glitchy as all of their other app iterations. The DCL app is a piece of crap. The MDE app crashed at the MK for most of the day on the big 50th anniversary day on October 1. And they expect us to believe that this new app will somehow plan a perfect day for guests? No way. TCD

  9. I guess they don't want those of us that don't like to micromanage their day or to be micromanaged when visiting the parks.

  11. Not camping related, but thought you "puppie" owners would enjoy. We moved to a new complex in Illinois, where we spend the summer near our daughter, and they tout being "pet friendly". Well they definitely live up to their word, we got this email today. DROOL IN THE POOL.. With Monday being the last day the pool will be open, we are dedicating Tuesday September 28th, to our 4 legged furry friends. We invite all the dogs to come and swim that day from 10 am- 6 pm. We will have special treats for them to enjoy. We will make sure the water is at an enjoyable temperature for them

  12. Love that! We just got back from a 10 day camping trip at the beach (Cape Cod), timed intentionally for when dogs are allowed on the beach in the off season (generally mid-Sep to Apr). And bonus, some days we had the beach almost entirely to ourselves! Ok so the water was only 69° but hey, that's almost 10° warmer than average this late in the season, and we had temps in the 70s so it was lovely for this NH girl. And yes, I brought a suit and went swimming.

  13. Word "floating around" was they oversold 200 sites due to a computer glitch... Of course I would never believe that DIS would have computer issues...

  14. I randomly popped on to FF and this was the first thread I noticed. I have a lot of catching up to do around here but am delighted to see so many familiar names contributing! When I was a "regular" here, I lived outside of Jacksonville, FL and my kids were in elementary school. We started camping at the Fort in a tent when they were 3 and 6, then a pop up, then a TT. In 2013, we relocated to a suburb of Philadelphia. Sold our TT to another family on this board right before we moved. We did get a new one, though we do not tow it down there. Now when we visit WDW we stay in a cabin. Expe

    I’m MAD😡😡

    Good point. I would add, however, that hedge fund managers and insiders are also raking it in, while Joe Sixpack shareholders twist in the wind. TCD

    Updated your post to modern business theory. While shareholders might get to ride along I think most modern corporations are designed to do nothing more than to enrich the executive corps. If you need proof look at the number of companies where shareholders lose value but executive pay increases.

  17. The fact that it sounds even remotely reasonable for the price to have doubled in 6 years is proof that we’ve lost our collective minds. Housing prices have doubled. The price of a steak has doubled. The price of a Disney vacation has doubled. Has your income doubled? If it has, good for you. But I bet most people would answer no. I know we all make decisions and prioritize spending based on what’s important to us, and I am not criticizing anyone for choosing to spend their money at WDW. I just don’t see how this is sustainable in the big picture.
