  1. It might be because Encato is set in Columbia not Mexico.
  2. Isn't that the new DVC tower they are building over there? I think it is suppose to open in 2024.
  3. My guess is your flip phone will do just as good a job as a smart phone in keeping the paper menu from flying off your table.
  4. Daughter number two would have loved the Nightmare Before Christmas tree. In fact it is her favorite Christmas movie which she introduced our granddaughter to last night. I think it will end up being GD's favorite too as the rest of the evening it was a 15 month old going around the house saying "Jack". Duck can be fatty but drying it for 24 hours in the fridge and pricking the skin before cooking will help a lot of fat to render out. I like to smoke ducks, no Dave not that way, and the longer cooking time tends to render more fat than what I can achieve in the oven. We aren't big on turk
  5. You can say that again. We use to be able to get one of our favorite sites at our goto state park a week or two out. After COVID hit it was hard to get anything covering a weekend unless you booked two to three months ahead of time. We ran into the same thing with the private campgrounds we use when we go to destinations only they can be fully booked even further out. As to RV's it looks like our trailer will be totaled (a good thing) for about what we paid (another good thing) for it due to the RV shortage pushing up prices. Rene and I have decided we are going to hold off on replacing
  6. They have the technology to measure wait times. MB, Disney phone apps and facial recognition can easily measure when someone enters the ride gate and loads onto the ride. In fact since they can in theory read very person entering the ride the numbers would be more accurate than the old manual method. The question is are they using any of these methods? Assuming they are using one of these methods and the wait times are truly way off I'd say this is just another IT screw-up in Disney's long history of IT screw-ups.
  7. 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.
  8. You can never have too much ice cream.
  9. It sounds like a decent package. I'd seriously consider it if we were planning to be at the Fort over those dates. You have no faith in Disney's crack IT team? Maybe they'll let them park at the Fort like they do for folks who go on cruises then go to the Fort upon return.
  10. Is it optional or mandatory? If it is optional it sounds like Disney is trying to milk a few more dollars for those sites over Halloween or maybe a group wants to spend big bucks and have social space. It might also be they are trying to control the big displays to minimize guest activity and unapproved trick or treating by asking those folks to leave for those few days. Doesn't sound like there is much information as to what is actually said in the calls or emails.
  11. I think that's neat and a nice way to end the season.
  12. Kind of lackluster for $80/person and if someone wants fries, oops, potato wedges they add another $8. I haven't been to WDW in a while but $11 for average draft beers seems high even by Disney standards. For $200+ for two unless they shoot you into orbit for your meal I think I'll stick to the relatively reasonable, by WDW standards, restaurants in Disney Springs.
