  1. I also read somewhere that the Magic was also supposed to go to drydock somewhere is Spain to get some minor updates...
  2. That was pretty cool!! Thanks for posting!
  3. Just checked this morning for something to do, and it looks like the fleet is spread out all over the place... The Wonder is still cooling her heels outside of San Diego The Dream is at the dock in Port Canveral The Fantasy is outside of Puerto Cortes, Honduras. I think they dropped off some crew in Cozumel recently. The Magic is moored in Ponta Delgada, Portugal. From some of the stuff I've read, the Fantasy and Magic were on repatriation cruises to get their crew back to (or close to) their homes...
  4. I would be more inclined not to go just because it would be hot as crap rather than worrying about the virus... I'm still trying to piece together a trip to the Fort in November... I've got the front end and the back in taken care of. Just need to take care of 3 days in the middle. I'm just about to turn this over to Jason and let him have it.
  5. Hey for us campers, its pretty easy... Night before last, I loaded up the wife, daughter and her roommate into the motor home and drove the 15 miles from our house to Bonefish Grill to eat. We had the parking lot to ourselves, where I found a place out of the way so as not to impede on the other takeout diners. I dropped the levelers, extended the large slideout and one of the smaller ones, and we enjoyed a nice meal that was still warm when we got it. It had begun to sprinkle rain and wind was starting to pick up, but we were high, dry, and filled when we left.
  6. I don't know about you, but I find that hard to believe that they were not given any special treatment during the shooting of these pictures... Or the guy is a master at Photoshop!
  7. I saw the night pictures on Facebook a couple of weeks ago... This photographer is really good at what he does!
  8. This article says that he used one of Disney’s boats to get out there. Discovery Island Castaway
  9. How do you think they will determine who the 50% will be? First come, first served, admission by "boarding" group similar to RofR, Florida residents, annual passholders, DVC members, or a combination of any/all of these?
  10. ... then following that question, someone is going to say "Whew, what is that smell?". We all know hot it gets wearing basically a sheet of plastic draped over your body.
  11. I'm with you on this Carol... We attended a MM short that is now playing now in HS in a small theater beside the Frozen Sing-A-Long, and wasn't impressed at all. It was the new animation format and to me, just left a lot to be desired...
  12. I'm with Blake on this, Disney should be able to keep these rides up and running on a fairly regular basis. Its not like new owners have taken over and began a maintenance program from scratch, Disney has been working on and maintaining these rides for a long time. My feelings is that Disney has shifted its focus on the newer and shinier things that tend to bring in the masses and have started to neglect the things that brought them where they are today. The statement that this Sage guys said in the article is about the stupidest things I have ever heard: "Due to Walt Disney World’s size, there are far more facilities at Walt Disney World to maintain than at Disneyland, and spread out over a vastly larger area," says Sage. "That makes the effort infinitely more difficult to accomplish in Disney’s Orlando resort." The size of the place should have absolutely nothing to do with anything. You know what you have in front of you to maintain, you staff it up properly to keep it going. Bottom line as far as I see it (which is not much) Disney is trying to do too much at once. There is some sort of "major" construction going on all over the property. One of my favorite sayings is: "I would rather do a few things well, than many things poorly".
  13. I'm waiting for Disney to really get creative... When we took our first Disney cruise, it was right after 9/11 and the travel industry had gone into a slump. Disney was offering a BOGO sale... Buy one cruise and get a 3 day cruise later on for "free"... we just had to pay the taxes on the "free" cruise.
