  1. Andrew, great to hear from you. When you of all people are parting ways with Disney, everyone needs to realize there is a problem..lol. Like we spoke years ago, Disney has changed so much. For years it was just an attraction that a family could vacation at. Disney was not battling for world domination back then like they are now. It seems the majority changed when they bought MARVEL. Everything was looked at to make more money. They didn’t just want to make more money, they wanted to become a powerhouse and make a HUGE amount of money. With acquisitions like ABC,ESPN and eventually Lucasf
  2. So, I have not posted here in a long time and actually have no been on the site for a long time as well. We started camping at the fort back in 2008 when our daughter was 2 and our son was a new born. We camped for 10 years there up until 2018 and Disney prices and booking a year out to get a site forced us out. We were just talking the other night about the great memories we had during those 10 years with our children growing up camping at the fort. Since we are locals, there was a time you could grab a reservation on a Wednesday for the upcoming weekend. We must have camped at least 50 time
  3. Hey Andrew. Nice to see you’re still enjoying the fort. This is the first time on this site for me in well over a year. We miss camping at the fort, owning the TT and the memories we made there. But, with this crazy year, the TT would have been in storage for over a year without use. Disney will never be like it was even without the pandemic. We enjoy remembering how it was instead of what it has become. Have fun in your future visits.
  4. I agree. If I don’t pay or visit, someone else will. That’s what justifies a new DVC resort. Just like this site. 10 years ago was a whole different group of campers here. I think many gave up camping at the fort, some still troll here and others like myself gave it up all together. This will probably be my last post here for a long time. Good luck all
  5. My family and I decided to visit the fort and have dinner at trails end this past Sunday. We have not visited since we camped there in May of 2018. I don’t post much here anymore since I’m not a camper anymore and I will rarely post but will from time to time. We knew there were changes happening at the fort due to the new abomination that’s not being built next door, but being built right on top of the fort. We were disgusted on what they are doing at the settlement area. With all that’s being taken away, we were surprised they didn’t tear down pioneer hall. They are basically building righ
  6. You’re absolutely right about a Star Wars fan expecting more. As I stated, they should have used the un-used spaces to make the shops and “bars” larger and feel like the park was full of things to do. They will never add to it for a long time. Maybe a new ice cream cart here or there. I still enjoyed it , but as a die hard Star Wars fan I thought it could be better
  7. No fast pass que at SR. It should have one by now since we never saw the wait time more than 65 minutes all weekend. I think the land and SR were so over hyped and unless you were a total Star Wars nerd, it was a bit of a let down.
  8. It actually does not look like a dirty town but more like maybe Asia at animal kingdom. I agree on this skyliner. I would have been the guy waving taking a wiz out the window if I was stuck that long on it.
  9. As I stated in another topic, this weekend was our swan song for our annual passes. Being a huge Star Wars fan, I had to check out Galaxy’s Edge before our passes expired. I did not get my hopes to high from what everybody said about the land itself and smugglers run not being the best thing since sliced bread. I’ll have to say, a lot of time and imagination went into the area, but I did not feel like I was immersed in a Star Wars world. It felt more like walking through a wider animal kingdom then stumbling upon some Star Wars stuff all shoved together in the back corner. The shopping are
  10. I like the progress but your right. On busy days now it’s impossible to move or leave the parks because of construction. I guess it’s funny how I complain about construction now when a few years back we all complained that there was never any progress. I just hate with progress prices go up and price out us normal people
  11. We took a day trip to Epcot and MK this past weekend. It’s all great that they are putting money into the parks and roadways, but slow down a bit. Every way you turn your being directed to a detour weather in the parks, waiting for a bus or trying to drive there. I would hate to plan a magical trip thousands of miles away to see all this construction and areas closed. I’m all for progress but this also increases ticket and food prices. The food is also off the chart these days. We went to Biergarten in Germany and dropped over $280 for the 4 of us. Gotta love that my 10 year old is conside
  12. As much as we complain about changes, it’s amazing how some of those pics and areas look like they were filmed yesterday. The castaway MK boat and the smaller ones have not changed along with pioneer hall and the trading post. Great video. Especially the long missed railroad
  13. They are probably fake splinters like the memory bricks at MK they are giving to people who had them. Political red tape..lol
  14. I know I can be a complainer and even a Debby downer a lot of the time, but this is just BS. What the hell are they doing? They own so much land and they are purposely building this right on top of the fort. Iger ruined Disney. He has no love for the fort, just money. I’m sure we can debate DVC all day here, but in my opinion it’s just another cash cow scam. This gets me so upset that the most peaceful and beautiful place in all of Disney is slowly going to the wayside. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until something drastic happens at the campgrounds. Can you imagine the people that wi
