    Congrats - sounds like a great fit all around! Glad things went so smoothly. re: tire changing, funny story... One of my most memorable childhood family vacation stories is the time my parents rented a MH to take us 3 kids and my grandparents to FL. Somewhere in NC with Mom driving, we blew a tire. It was an inside tire and Mom drove a school bus for a bunch of years, so that part was really no big deal. She got us safely to the side of the road, we flagged someone down (this is pre-cell phones) so my dad could get to the nearest pay phone to call a tow truck. A van full of people pulled over with an a/c unit out the side and a big recliner in the back. (My sister and I still joke that we never thought we'd see dad again) It eventually took 3 trucks to change the tire... the first one they sent was too small. The second one got stuck in the soft shoulder. The third one came, pulled the 2nd one out and changed the time quickly and easily. Running family joke is "how many tow trucks does it take to change a tire in NC?"

    The overal athestic of the land is top notch. The textures, the layout, the sounds, etc are very well done. Better than Pandora, I think. I really liked the bazaar area attached to Ronto's Roasters. Even the restrooms are cool. The gift shop adjacent to Smugglers Run is really nice. The artifacts on the walls are amazingly detailed. Overall it truly feels like another world. It is also really nice at nighttime. The lightsaber build experience was also very cool. The CM that we had directing it was great. He really pulled you into the story and made it feel real. Bode absolutely loved it. Smugglers Run ride was kind of "meh" for me. It was good, but not jaw dropping like I felt when riding FoP for the first time. The que, however, is almost as good as the ride. I really wish it was 3D. I feel like Star Tours is more exciting. I hope RotR is a standout. SR is about a 30 minute wait tops, IMHO. Overall it is really good. The CM's and characters in the land do a great job of making it seem like you're really in a Star Wars movie location.

    For those of you pumped about a visit to Oga's Cantina, I suggest that you lower your expectations. A lot. I had my second visit there last night for s passholder preview. It was a lot more crowded than for the CM preview I attended. That is probably how it will be when it's open to the public. In case you don't already know, there is very little seating in the Cantina. It's mostly standing room. No stools at the bar, and the bar is circled by large high top tables with no stools. There are large booths on the exterior walls which do have seating. For the previews, a host assigns your seating. Parties are expected to share the tables, and are grouped together at the tables. The mixed drink menu is fixed because all of the drinks are pre-made. The glasses are very small. Even for the beer. The prices are outrageous, even for Disney. The mixed drinks go for $15-17 a pop, and beers $13-14. For very small portions. The animatronic DJ is fun. But not at these prices. I think comparing this bar to Tradet Sam's is fair. The drinks are bigger and cheaper at Trader Sam's, and the atmosphere is more fun. And Trader Sam's has barstools. This place, like the rest of Galaxy's Edge is a blatant money grab that could have and should have been better. Yall have fun. I'm not going back. TCD

The Blogs camera work has improved the last couple of years, but it's still not as good as being there. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights have returned to Magic Kingdom Park, and this year, one event offering wowing guests is the brand-new nighttime fireworks show, “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular.” Today, we’re happy to share that Inside Disney Parks is just moments away from live streaming “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular.” Our stream will begin at 10:10 p.m. ET, right here. In the new show, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” comes to tell a “not-so-scary” story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, flies off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treat adventure, where Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. They encounter dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains along the way. Of course, you can also catch “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” in person by attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Find details on that here.

Running through Nov. 15, the state-of-the-art projection mapping, "Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle," will combine special effects and lighting into a fully immersive – and terrifying – display. Photo via Universal Orlando The Death Eaters will lurk amongst guests in person too, of course, shrouded in fog and ominous green light, and "practicing the Dark Arts with complete disregard of wizarding laws." Guest will also contend with Dementors, Aragog, Mountain Trolls, Thestrals and other unspeakable creatures cloak the castle for “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle.” Universal Orlando notes "Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle" is its third projection mapping experience created for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. After HHN, guests will enjoy other seasonal projects like "Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle" and "The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle." It's scary enough to make you throw up your Butterbeer. For more information, visit www.universalorlando.com.

    We're bummed we're going to miss seeing y'all too. The beach should be nicely quiet this late in the year, which doesn't sound so bad right about now. And DH has already picked out the seafood/sushi restaurant 4 miles from the campground where he says we're eating every day. LOL If only we could take a boat or golf cart there...

    We had a Leave a Legacy tile, so at least once per trip, we actually dropped by to visit it, but yes, the presentation of those was terrible.

    Currently staying at the Fort thru Wednesday. There have been reports on a Facebook group that the Fort is closing Tuesday and Wednesday due to Hurricane Dorian. I called several levels of call centers up to Guest Services assigned to handle storm changes and they state currently the Fort is business as usual with no timeline for closing. For good measure I went up to the front desk and spoke with 3 front line CM's and the management CM at the same time (this place is dead and they were all waiting and ready to help clients). They re-iterated business as usual. They stated they do have a plan in place IF it is needed but with the hurricane moving at 1mph it would be premature at this point. The manager said the best thing you can do is to make sure you My Disney Experience app is up to date, your reservation is linked, and you have push notifications turned on. IF they need to contact people about a closure they will push a notification out to the affected people instructing them to contact Disney with regards to the situation. If and as I hear any new information I will update this post so we have it all in one place.

    Nice! My husband is the big Star Wars fan, and he is happily tucking away money for his lightsaber. He'll be happy to know it's going to be worth it. I get attached to the ships, so I expect I'll be crying when I see the Millenium Falcon for the first time. For instance, in the Star Trek universe, I did not shed a tear when Spock died. But when they blew up the Enterprise, I jumped up, shouted "NO!" and broke down crying in the theater. Thanks for the up to date reporting, it's very helpful!!

    So the night before last I never fell asleep. Had to be up at 3:30 to shower and head to the airport for my 7 am flight. I cant sleep on planes. Got here and set up with friends who are letting me borrow their hybrid for the week. Went to Disney Springs to pick up my ticket and meet the owner of Mouse Counselors to use some free tickets he got to the NBA Experience (if you like basketball or really love it the place is cool. Me not so much but I took picture to share with clients) then had dinner at Homecoming. Came back to the camper and worked till 9. Then I crashed. Hard. My alarm was set for 3 am. I apparently turned my alarm off during the night. Didnt snooze it, or acknowledge it, turned it off (have I mentioned I have a history of doing things in my sleep?) Woke up at 5 and missed the beginning. By the time I got there the land had closed so I joined the virtual queue and got boarding party 27. Got my notification I could enter around 8:20. Took a little bit of playing and swapping some options around but got my live stream running. Here is a link to the video posted.

    I'm sure there is an owner's group on FB somewhere. Might be best to join, or a review sight describing the problems 🙂 The owner's group will defend them and the review site will blast them, and then you at least have both sides of the story 🙂

    Probably buried at the bottom in miniscule print is a disclaimer saying you shouldn't allow your dog (or cat) to drive your car. We have become such a litigious society that common sense no longer counts and everything has to be spelled out to prevent a lawsuit. There was a warning label for an iron, saying you should not iron your clothes while wearing them.

    I have already decided my left kidney is not needed and will be selling it to pay for this whatever the pricing ends up being. WDWNT though has had some knocks for putting out anything that will get them clicks lately but this has been speculated pricing for a while. It may be my only trip anywhere for the year but it will happen.

    1. I’m glad my family isn’t really into star wars. 2. Youtube will be the only way we see this place. 3. And thanks to YouTube we’ve had many conversations with our children about “most people don’t live like this” and while you are in our house you will never fly first class, have a giant tv (or any tv) in your room, have a room dedicated to video games or LOL dolls (or whatever the hottest toy is) nor will a company send you toys to “unbox”. 😂

    On the website it specifically says it does not hve to be used on consecutive days but they do have to be used up with in the date range. A 2 day ticket gives you 4 days to use it. For example purchased for the 22 is good through the 25th.

    Further North of the Hotels was what I saw two years ago. There is still a massive chunk of land there. The new College Program Dorms and Strip Mall are on the SW corner of 429 and Western Way right at the edge of RCID property. They have filled that corner in as itt is a very large campus. There is also still a large parcel off of Hartzog that is vacant over to Avalon. And for those interested, Western Way now connects to Avalon you no longer need to use Hartzog.
