  1. Checked in on Monday, 12/09/19, and they had received my faxed list of preferred sites. They assigned us to number two on the list as number one was occupied. Nothing in the procedure has changed for us for our weekday visits. Faxes still work. Did notice and talked to the CM about their transition to IPads at checkin. Checkin procedure is changing for them and they are currently bouncing between the old and new systems.
  2. Rode RotR on Tuesday and to date IMHO it is the best ride I have ever been on hands down. No spoiler alerts here but I will say if you get sick on simulators or are plan tired of boring overused simulator rides this ride is the answer you’ve been looking for. Disney has set the bar high for future rides. Congrats to Disney for giving us a REAL ride!
  3. The bus service has been getting extremely unreliable. Sad, as it used to be our transportation of choice. Not anymore. I've actually called Guest Services and complained when we are waiting beyond the magical "20 minute"wait times, or times are not listed on the board, and a bus somehow magically appears. When you board be sure to let the bus driver know how long you waited and sometimes they will call in the complaint. Also, if you are heading to a park and are delayed by slow bus service go straight to Guest Services and they will give you time back in the form of Fast Passes for any ride. Don't let these inconveniences slide. Disney management needs to know about these epic bus failures so they can correct the situation.
  4. Must be very recent change. During the second week of October, on a whim, we had a quick one night stay at the Fort. We just pulled up to registration, asked for a specific site, the CM checked his computer screen, our requested site was available, assigned to us and off we went. Guess we were lucky or prior to changes. Having to check and verify thru another layer just for site assignment would sure slow things down at registration. The CM's that have a "visual" on the camper size, and who are familiar with the loops and campsites, are much more capable of making those decisions. Going back in a couple weeks-will see what happens then. Thanks for the update.
  5. IMHO my visit to Star Wars:Galaxy's Edge felt like buying a cheap knockoff Star Cluster:Spiral Universe toy at a local Flea Market. You know what it's supposed to be but somethings missing. The whole place felt like a total outlet mall experience of the real thing. Like PGHFiend I'm in no hurry to go back. I don't think the new ride is going to salvage the overall "meh" overpriced land perception. Disney just learned just because you build it doesn't necessarily mean they will come. There's more to it than that. They misguidingly gave us the fake when we wanted the real thing.
  6. Thanks for posting the Vlog - it was so much fun to watch. No question this is what Disney is all about! Times to cherish and remember.
  7. AWESOME! When I was there recently it was like stabbing us in the heart watching them put up that chain link fence and close down the playground. Perhaps things will turn out not so bad after all. Let's hope for the best. Enjoy your visit!
  8. My apologies if I offended anyone but this is very scary for this little girl. Hopefully the only people that respond are “Fiends” and not the questionable lurkers on the net of which her parents have no control. I have a young niece that started getting very questionable “friends” because of exactly this type of innocence and fun and it got very scary for her family. They had to shut everything down. I wish you all the best, enjoy yourselves, but please be cautious. Data security is critical and ever so crucial especially where children are concerned.
  9. No thank you. This has scam written all over it. Posted on a "kids" account, grammatical errors such as "We've", short turn around to build urgency, minimal " likes", "not associated with Instagram" but you "agree to Instagram terms". Plus why would an adult "18 years of age" contest be posted on a kid's Instagram account? If I was this childs parent I would be shutting her Instagram account down ASAP! As we all tell our kids, "Stranger Danger" more than ever applies to the Internet. Stay safe.
  10. Appears to be a sign of things to come. Wouldn't be surprised to see all outside vendor camper rentals doing setups on Disney property go away. They need to fill all those new rooms they are building. Or, maybe THEY will start renting official "Fort Wilderness" campers...hmmmm ?
  11. Perhaps it will become a "seasonal" mode of transportation and only be used in the fall and winter. Mother Nature will make that decision for them-LOL. Thanks for the great review, TCD! There must not have been anyone on the design team that drove around Orlando in August with their car windows down and air conditioner turned off to enjoy the real experience of heat, humidity, wind and rain blowing thru their hair. Another missed opportunity to excel at something that had the potential to WOW guests rather than having them wipe sweat off their brows and be miserable. Just another perfect example of Disney's total disregard of the fact that Orlando is NOT California and not thinking it through. A reality check is going to happen real fast on this one.
  12. As soon as the news broke about Reflections we were told by numerous cast members/bar tenders that Crockett's Tavern was going to be renovated. Not sure what that impact will be but I don't think there's any doubt changes are coming to Pioneer Hall we just haven't seen the plans yet. Wouldn't mind seeing it increase in size as they have a hard time accommodating the ever increasing Fort crowds and Reflections guests will certainly want to enjoy it also. Especially if they are staying in the cabins on Clementine's Beach.
  13. We were shocked and saddened also by the response that we got. Hopefully others will have a much more positive experience such as mouseketab....Carol. Just didn't work for us on that particular day.
  14. "At the first aid stations, nurses are available to offer over-the-counter medications, bandages and other quick remedies for free." This quote from the Tampa Tribune is so not true. We stopped by the First Aid Station at Epcot, found 5 "medical" personnel laughing, joking, and so not interested in helping us. We politely asked for help which required a simple bandaid for a wound, and they told us to "exit the property and drive to the nearest drug store." We were shocked and totally disallusioned by DW first aid support and lack of compassion or concern. Based on that experience, and past lack of "heat" issue concern at Hollywood Studios temporary bus stops, I'm not expecting any consideration or assistance what so ever to make guests comfortable at Galaxy's Edge. It makes me sad how this attitude has evolved at DW. Sure has changed.
  15. I've never seen them use that extra overflow lot either. Didn't even know it existed. Must have been one heck of a day for BG visitors. Certainly one of those days I would have continued driving by and never pulled in. Thanks for the history lesson on Henderson Airport and Mel's. It is a fascinating tidbit of Tampa history. Looking at the area today it's hard to imagine what it looked like pre-BG and USF.
