    Premium Meadow Sites ?

    That's what you give as baby shower gifts, pre-booked reservations to FL campgrounds. By the time the kid is old enough to go camping you might have a reservation available.

    I overheated the camera, but managed to get all the carts, marching bands, cast members, police cars and firetrucks. There is even a unicycle and a potbellied pig! Enjoy! I have the fireworks for 4th of July as well and they are taken from the Poly, where I partied with the rockstars! (old, old joke) I am going to put them on another thread.

    Fear not, Jamboree fans! No further information has been provided regarding the Country Bears and the park’s 50th anniversary celebrations, but we are thrilled that the bears will be staying (and that Big Al will in fact, not be skinned and replaced with Stinky Pete the Prospector.) We thank all of you who wrote in to voice your love and nostalgia for the Country Bears and helped to Save the Jamboree! https://wdwnt.com/2019/06/breaking-disney-states-country-bear-jamboree-will-not-close-at-walt-disney-world/?fbclid=IwAR1eg2lzRNupDeLWQDAIkmSZx5Kh4suG3EaNpbxd4yB_4BtyHCuFFdBZaJo BUT... there seems to be this strange thing happening recently where even-more-outlandish-than-usual rumors are hitting the interwebz - often from the very site I quoted that from - and they of course go uber-viral and people go bananas. That part isn't all that unusual - except maybe for the frequency that such "insider info" rumors hit that particular site, but what IS unusual is that Disney has actually made public posts refuting some of these lately - most notably this one and one the other day about the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. Disney usually lets these things play out. Not sure why they've jumped into the fray recently, except that maybe that the rumors involve attractions that have been around for ages and that longtime Disney fans really would go bonkers over if they changed them drastically or removed them altogether. Meanwhile, the site publishing the rumors is likely getting a BOATLOAD of traffic off these. As our fearless leader says, things that make you go hmmm.....

    RUMOR: New walkway from GF to MK?

    Maybe a barrel/plank bridge like Tom Sawyers Island that they can unhook and pull out of the way each night!

    Margaritaville resort now has a campground open. $85 a night is still pricey, but it is roughly half of the Fort. Looks like they have golf cart rental...not sure if private carts are allowed. The water park and beach area looks pretty nice, and you can actually get in the water! Edit...just called them. Private carts are allowed and you can take them from the campground down to the water park and restaurant areas. https://www.lanierislands.com/margaritaville

    In the "definitely NOT a rumor" department, if you want to get another chance to the Main Street Electrical Parade, pack your bags and get yourself a plane ticket - it's coming back to Disneyland this summer... https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/06/summer-shines-even-brighter-at-disneyland-resort-with-return-of-main-street-electrical-parade/?CMP=SOC-DPFY19Q3wo0627190703190018C&fbclid=IwAR0U4ZQKxHp7Pa1wpgJreaIyqn_sd5alzNuhcfJQ_HpLkrd-e5YbVNTo0Wc

    So has Universal. If you read the non Disney written articles part of that is being done to control the crowds and it's not working. Prices go up and crowds get bigger so apparently it's not hurting too many families. This past fall Linda and I never found a "slow" day at the Parks, lines for many attractions were ridiculous. MK has been open 15 min and already a 60 min wait for SDMT.. AK already has a 90 min wait for AVATAR. HS 90 min for Slinky Dog. So somebody's buying tickets.

    Oh, by the way, Sam's Club is now offering Annual Passes at a SIGNIFICANT discount. http://allears.net/2019/06/22/sams-club-offering-discounts-on-disney-tickets-and-annual-passes/

    The Fastpass/Maxpass system for DW just like DL could be a step in the right direction. No more advanced reservations and placing all guests on the same level playing field. Good point djsamuel!

    4 new promotions were released today for select dates in fall of 2019. I have all the offers on my Facebook page if anyone is interested in seeing them. https://www.facebook.com/JasonWithMouseCounselors/

    The last picture is impressive. Especially with the 4 lane road they built underneath to get the rescue and maintenance vehicles in. There was a post the other day showing Reedy Creek conducting rescue drills. They set up multiple belay lines and the rescuees have to zip line down from the stalled cars. This will count as a FP ride. The pictures were on Chip and Co, but it looks like they were pulled down. They did have this picture In case of an emergency, guests can evacuate from the Skyliner onto a three-story pontoon. This giant blue boat is outfitted with plenty of ring buoys and foam barriers to protect the boat. Guests will unload onto the top platform and proceed to the bottom to continue onto their journey back to the dock where they will unload to “safety”.

    Train, bumper cars and walking more our speed, and I joined the brew club on fathers day so there’s always a stop there.

    Next stop was SKAGWAY. It’s really a big little town, approximately 5 blocks wide and 7 blocks long, but very busy when the cruise ships arrive. Here you can board the train and take a very scenic ride up the mountain and cross back over to Canada. We did that on our 2 previous cruises and you can see those pics in my 2012 report. In the morning when we arrived Rick and Andy went salmon fishing, but since it was early in the season it was catch and release for the king salmon. After lunch we took and very exciting and scenic helicopter tour up to one of the glaciers. We had originally booked a sea-plane excursion, but do to the 3 previous accidents DCL cancelled all of those tours. Here we are after our safety video with our safety vests waiting for our ride. Grandma, Michele and Charlotte had no desire to tag along. Here comes our ride. Rick and Andy got to sit in the front. The scenery was spectacular from this vantage point. Getting close to our destination Andy and Emily by the Alaskan Flag. They leave one helicopter there for emergencies The reason you see the dark streaks on a glacier. The rocks that are crushed and moved along with the ice. It’s amazing what Mother Nature does. A close up Since I still have some walking issues due to my back I stayed back from the group and just took pictures. The blue color that reflects through. The kids off in the distance The clear ice shows the purity of the water It’s really hard to see, but the water is running about 6’ below us under the ice. One last shot before we head back to the ship. We were on the Glacier for over 30 minutes which for the kids made for a very interesting afternoon. More of the wonderful scenery as we head back. The harbor approaches as we arrive back at the port. We actually boarded the helicopter with-in about a block of the ship. As we are about to touch down. Up next, JUNEAU, Mendenhal Glacier and some whale watching.

    From a travel agent email I just received. We’ve got some exciting news to share today with the galaxy. We’re opening Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World Resort. If this date sounds familiar, many of our fans will recognize it as Walt Disney’s birthday. What better way to honor the ultimate storyteller than by introducing the most immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined in a Disney Park. When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put Guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren. As soon as work is completed at Walt Disney World, Imagineers will head back to California to complete their mission at Disneyland Resort where Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Friday, January 17.

    Disneyland Family Fight

    The only feasible law suit from this could come from the other park guests that had to witness and intervene in this abysmal situation. And, unfortunately, they won't sue the folks at fault because Disney has the deeper pockets.

    Besides sweet, competition. Too bad it's not at the new one. Might make Disney start to pay attention to the Fort.

    Yeah my one thought in all this is that rumors drive clicks, whether they pan out or not. And I'd imagine "war" with Disney does also... Although does that mean they'll be off the "preferred bloggers" invite list for the next event?

    It's all about the click revenue to these sites.

    The dog park is now complete. They added new lamp posts and lights, a pavillion over the new tables and added a big dalmatian at the entrance. Looks really nice. Also spotted new cart parking lot being installed next to the meadows store, and it's a pretty good size. Here's a panoramic. Many loops have been repaved and construction at River Country is still in land clearing and leveling. I'd say they brought up the ground for the new horse barn about 8 feet to make it level with the existing road. All of the lounge chairs have been moved to the "New" side of the beach and it looks pretty nice. Here's a pic of Clementines side. Many open sites here today, pool had many open chairs, maybe half, at 2 pm.

    Same. It's interesting that they haven't announced bringing it back to Disneyland. We ought to know what's happening after next month's D23 Expo. TCD

    Correct, he built DL because of the way that fairs and carnivals were going, with the hucksters, and drunks.

    The kicker will be how they handle telling someone they told their stroller is too big to bring in the park when that person flips out and starts ranting about "I came 47,000 miles on a donkey and paid a BILLION dollars for this trip..." I know Disney is amazing at training their CMs for handling people, but they're not always amazing when it comes to dealing with confrontational guests.

    I will add it to my list. But your odds have increased for getting that loop. instead of 1 in 12 its 1 in 6. or something like that. Still waking back up.

    According to a fellow TA friend who is local to the Fort the Premium Meadows loop numbers are 600, 800, 900, 1000, and 1400 She isn’t on here but thanks Nancy

    I find the new one difficult to follow since the destinations are not presented in a logical order. I also wish there were more US locations besides Monument Valley, but that is beautiful. I do like the projection quality though.

    I love how the Mouse is able to create demand, thereby justifying higher pricing, simply by giving something a different name. They could probably create a new category for the 2000 loop called "Cultural Exchange and Excessive Refreshment Campsites" and charge 25% more.

    Galaxy's Edge Opens at Disneyland

    That would be my thought! 'cause I'm not waiting in a 10 hour line for anything unless they're giving away loaded armored cars at the end.

    Bye bye 2 rail fences

    They probably hire WPG when BPG is on vacation. It's what happens when you hire specialists.
