  1. We're still not sure when we will be making our next trip to WDW but this eliminates our checkout day meal. We would always pack up, park in the overflow lot and take the bus to TE for brunch before hitting the road. It was also one of the places we would eat at on non-park days. As more things go away it is getting to the point that I am starting to wonder if staying at the Fort is worth the cost anymore.
  2. Took a quick glance at prices and they didn't seem to bad for the convenience to the hwy. I'll have to keep this in mind for when we have a new trailer and can get back out to travel.
  3. A lot of that avalanche started do to actions taken under Iger's watch. It didn't hit critical mass until after he had left and Chapek took over adding his own mistakes. I'm not sure how many things Iger can fix as a number of them are out of his control being caused by industry wide problems. No matter how it turns out I don't see a reduction in Park and resort prices being in the mix. One of Iger's tasks is to find a new replacement which I think will complicate finding one as the best candidates will turn down the opportunity knowing Iger is always in the wings waiting to take over. This pu
  4. Carolina Crossroads is near Roanoke Rapids and when it was first open was overnight friendly. We've never stayed there so I can't say if it still is I do know it gets generally good reviews. We live near Raleigh and WDW is about a 600 mile drive. I would guess it is about the same from Roanoke Rapids to Orlando. We didn't like driving the whole way with a trailer in tow so we would stop and overnight at the Savannah South KOA which is about halfway. It wasn't anything fancy but it was always clean when we stopped through. It is also where we would stop when we were going to spend a day or two
  5. The Fort is generally quiet during the week off-season. We like to plan our trips with an arrival on Sunday to take advantage of the relative quiet. Depending upon whether we plan to spend a day in Savannah we will either check out the following Friday or Saturday parking in the overflow lot for brunch at the Trials End before hitting the road.
  6. Could they be trying to drive more business to P&J's Southern Takeout? They use the same kitchen so it isn't like it is a custom item. It doesn't make sense then again removing it from the TE menu didn't make sense either.
  7. As we have been looking to replace our travel trailer I've learned a lot about who owns who and what brands are part of what subsidiaries. I might be off some but I recall Thor and Forest River control about 80% of the RV market with Winnebago in third place with 8%. That doesn't leave much left for the rest of the bunch.
  8. I don't think it would be weird as it offers both of you something you can enjoy.
  9. Yes that whole route from Pigeon Forge through Gatlinburg is a big mess of traffic. When going to Gatlinburg we try to park at one of the city lots and walk or use the trolley.
  10. Glad to hear things started off on a good foot. I hear you on going around Chicago. I hate the area where all of the interstates overlap there along the south side of Chicago and Lake Michigan. It was there that our travel trailer and truck were hit by a driver who lost control in the rain and spun into us. You'd think in the 40 years since we left the area they could have done something about that stretch of road.
  11. It might be because Encato is set in Columbia not Mexico.
  12. Isn't that the new DVC tower they are building over there? I think it is suppose to open in 2024.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
