  1. I am planning a trip to assess the damage Irma did to the 3000 loop. Beer lines are already scheduled for replacement, so mainly I will be focusing on the massage parlor. I can't hook up the Outback, however, until I hit at least 650 likes. So it's all up to you!

  2. It has been written on other threads that the theming of Wilderness Lodge is changing somewhat with the upcoming DVC additions. One of those changes is that Silver Creek Falls, the main water feature at the resort, will be renamed Copper Creek Falls. That change made my family sad, as we have a history with Silver Creek Falls, as I'll explain below. You see, both my wife and I are from a small town in western New York called Silver Creek. And both of my parents grew up there too. So imagine our surprise when we made our first ever trip to Disney with our kids in 2001, during which we st

  5. I wasn't going to say anything but before a million show up I think I should. I took the liberty of ordering 6 and having them shipped c/o the Millers. They should get delivered tomorrow if all goes well. It seemed wrong to me that they weren't there for the kids to learn and play with. My Christmas present to the Fiends and the Fort.

    Hail To The Bus Driver

    I've been given small gifts, been asked for a hug, it was a little boy so I was ok with it. paid compliments for my driving, done high fives, gotten thank you cards, but today was a first. This really happy and friendly small group got on my bus this morning at CBR when all of a sudden one of them yelled out, lets sing "hail to the bus driver". Which they did. They had a song all prepared hailing, yes, me. It was too funny and I really got a kick out of it. I told them they should have waited until I got them to their destination in one piece.

  7. I will take part of the blame for that. I have been very sick during 2017 and I am not a very public person. The WWW group has known because we all talk privately on our phones. However, I have been doing all I can just to keep my head up at work. In addition, I was attacked at school after my surgery (to fix what was wrong) and had to immediately change jobs. If you noticed, I disappeared. I didn't mean to but something had to give and that is why I have some other people who help me in the background who I could not thank enough. My goal in 2018 is to hopefully get everything back up

  8. I understand that you are unhappy. I also understand that you have been on every major internet outlet you can find to vent your frustrations and wow, that must have taken up quite a bit of your time. However, over here, we value the sense of camaraderie that people have here first BEFORE deciding to vent. I just hope that you remember all of these words you have in print all over the internet and I hope there is 100% truth to them. Going after a business in public can be a very dangerous thing if you don't tell the truth and nothing but the truth. I have no monkeys in this circus, trust

  9. Something else to consider for those that might make the argument "well I just want information, not all the banter" There are LOADS of places on the web to get "just the facts ma'am." Anyone ever heard of Google? Of course these days many of the topics you Google specific to the Fort will point you directly to FF.net! Hmm... I wonder why that is? After all, Google doesn't tend to rank you highly for just "banter." I know for me, I come to a message board not just because I'm too lazy to find the answer for myself or I don't know where to look, but because I don't just want facts posted o

    Site 734

    Not just my standard, I was simply agreeing with a previous poster. Ok, let me say that I don't think Hilda's site organizational style is what it should be. How's that? What do I have to say to make it worth more? Well at least I might get some down arrows from Bob, I really need some. And it was Starbuc that called Hilda's stuff junk first, so he should get one too, neener, neener, neener. I think most people that see that site think it's a little much. I've talked to Hilda several times and shes always been very nice to me, but as I haven't talked to her lately, I didn't know that she was

I know that camping gatherings are on hold until all this junk is behind us, but I still wanted to thank each and every one of you for sticking around and keeping the "dream" alive of one day getting together again. On this day, 10 years ago, a couple of minutes after midnight, this forum began. (I then, 10 minutes later, was unceremoniously banned from Voldemort, lol) We recently had our Wild Womenz Weekend 2021, with COVID restrictions of course, and it was one of the best evah! Some of our regulars couldn't make it at the last minute, but we knew they were there in spirit. CO

  12. I totally/completely have no desire to return at this point. I do have a hotel reservation booked for Oct, but if our kids can't join us, (because they had not booked yet, and may not be able to book) AND they are in a state with a 2-week quarantine when entering FL. Also, we can't buy tickets at this time, so most likely will cancel. The no park hopping and reservation system really stinks. My plan was to go early in the morning and hit the attractions I wanted to see at rope drop (at Studios, AK, and MK), then late afternoon, troll food booths at Epcot. We are purely, hunt and peck type trav

    Is the magic gone?

    If you are still enjoying your trips, and making good memories with your kids, by all means take those trips. Keep in mind that everyone on here is in different stages of their Disney relationship. Some have been going for many years and are jaded. Others have been going a long time and will continue, as they simply love Disney. Many more are in the early stages of their Disney crush and the magic is still being made. If your only doubts about continuing on your journey are due to the opinions of others, please pay them no attention. You may come upon Disney burn out on your own, in your

  15. It was a two street. Disney CMs, no matter how high up, love to make what are called "Magical Moments", and as Dave can now verify, the CMs involved enjoyed making it happen. And unbeknownst to him, the GM and the CMs involved, got to see his reaction after receiving the sign. It was a nice moment for everyone involved.

  16. Oh brother....those look like the same obnoxious Moms that I always wanted to punch in the nose while waiting for my kid at gymnastics. Gabbing on their phones, feeding the younger kid some sort of crap from Sonic while big sister is tumbling on the mats but Mom isn't watching because she's too busy on the phone, twiddling with their hair and talking so loud I can't think straight. Then they get their kid, load up in the big SUV and nearly back over me because they never did get off the damn phone. And now, we're all supposed to be impressed and in awe that they are getting a "sneak peak" o

    Kennys Tee Time Rental

    Only 3 posts on this board and your expressed sole reason for joining is for bashing a well respected outside vendor. Your line "I may even annoy Disney a bit about off property rentals" is really telling. Are you the guy in charge of renting carts at the fort or is it one of your relatives who is a cast member in charge of the golf cart rentals?

  21. Oh, I have an awesome story to tell from dinner. We were talking to the lady at the bar next to us. We were talking about the Fort and our campers. I mentioned I had a [email protected] teardrop. She said "I love those campers! Earlier this year I stalked one on the road near my house to get a picture. It was white with blue trim and had Mickey's down the side". NO WAY!!! She showed a picture from her phone and it was MY CAMPER!! This, as it turned out was in Destin in January. Rick and myself were on a quick weekend trip to Topsail Hill State Park.

  25. For me, we've actually lost some interest in Disney and the Fort. The uptick in prices, the fact that we can no longer buy an annual pass at present, and the pandemic, has put a damper on our enthusiasm for things Disney. (Especially since we just traveled cross country for three weeks, for less than a week at the Fort)

  28. Happy New Year!! It's hard to believe 2017 is over, and 2018 is here. For a variety of reasons, 2017 was a bit of a tough year around the DIT ranch. I got off-line to focus on more important things. We were incredibly busy at home, and at work. But we did have some fun too, along the way. And in looking back at my photos from 2017, I had to chuckle when I realized that INC and I made FIVE trips to central Florida during the year! And for some unknown reason, despite my hatred for Disney, at least one of those trips involved a visit to see the Mouse. Maybe more than one.

  29. Some people think it's all about them. They want to make a name for themselves with the like-minded fools on social media. I don't care what your politics are; there used to be a thing called decency and decorum in this country. You didn't yell and scream and act like a fool because there were likely children watching and learning from your antics. How many kids have been at the Hall of Presidents over the past decade as decency has eroded in this country, and had what should have been a beautiful and patriotic show ruined because some idiot made a scene. If I were there with my kids and

Tell Denise and Ed TCD says Hi, and that they can come over here anytime if they'd like to get accurate information first hand instead of relying on stuff that you and others have to steal and post. And since you apparently can't take a hint- it is not cool to steal photos from another site without giving credit via a link. Which you cannot do over there, as one of the remaining minions will rat you out to Webmaster Kathy and company, and you will be flushed. TCD

  35. to me I cant put a cost to the memories that i made as a kid growing up at the fort. I know my mom and dad worked OT, or second jobs to make it work and for that I am grateful. That being said, I have made it, camping at the fort, a priority for my kids. I am a Disney fan like most others, and it came to the realization that staying at a Disney property was going to be expensive, but the benefits about the transportation/ planning out weigh staying anywhere else( unless were there for 1 night) back in 2014 we spent 27 nights in Disney hotels, and that set me back just over $6,000 fo

  40. Okay, As the parent of an autistic child I am somewhat embarrassed by this lawsuit. Do the changes to the GAC make it more difficult for my son to visit the parks, ABSOLUTELY, but to claim that Disney made these changes to exclude kids like my son is beyond ludicrous. Yes, it is important that guests with disabilities have the same access to experiences that all guests have, but it is also the duty of every parent of a disabled to child to take responsibility for the needs of their own child. We visited WDW at both Thanksgiving and Christmas with my son and found ways to get him on his favo

It must be that inner urge you have to rain on parades, to burst bubbles, to laugh in the face of danger. But no one can take the magic that is Disney away from me. The minute I walk into Magic Kingdom I'm mentally transformed into that little girl of so long ago who sat mesmerized in front of the TV, idolizing Annette, Sharon, Cubby, Karen, Bobby and the rest of the Mouseketeers. I remember a time when my parents could solve all of my problems, take away ever

This is not the place where you just post a question and then "walk" away, never to return. It "sucks" you in, because family does that. Family takes care of you (sometimes whether they like you or not :rofl2: ) and will complain, and spit and moan for a while too. BUT THEY DO IT.

While the first few days we had him were filled with doubts and sadness, once he began eating on his own, he did nothing but make us smile with his antics. I kept hoping right up until just before I left to drop him off that maybe I would be able to keep him, but it didn't happen. While giving him to Cindy, I was happy and grateful that I found a good home for him, but at the same time it was difficult. I made sure I kept my

    In a thread a while back I mentioned that there were a couple of posters honoring the military at the main WDW transportation center located at TTC. This is the main location for all the transportation services at WDW. Bus, monorail, & watercraft operations are all handled out of this location. If you're facing the ticket booths at TTC, it's the building on the far left. It doesn't look like much but there is a lot going on inside there. When I wrote about the military posters, Ed asked to see photos, but I kept forgetting my camera. Well, I finally got my act together today and took this

Their marketing people are amazing to come up with that name. They're available FREE, yup free, to anyone entering the parks that hasn't gone brain dead from using their smart phone. That rules out most of you. This innovation appears on a material called, PAPER, that is only .003 of an inch thick. This paper stuff comes with a feature that allows you to fold it.
