  1. It was odd indeed. But all worked out in the end. We arrive early and have always received a text while still on I-4 just before the DW exit. So there is definitely some inconsistency between your reservations and ours concerning text messaging. I truly do feel sorry for the Cast Members during these unusual times. Change is the new norm and adaptability is a virtue. Fortunately I feel we’ve both enjoyed DW and The Fort in its glory days and can only imagine what the new norm is going to be. Would like to see them go to site selection upon reservation but I’m sure they have their reasons for n
  2. Correct-the "number" is still attached to a fax machine but the "assigning procedure" has changed. Our experience the week before Labor Day, when the campground was deserted, was totally different than in the past. "For the first time in forever" our request, sent 10 days in advance, was ONLY attached to our reservation and our preferred site NOT pre-assigned as done previously. We were texted a site that was NOT on our list. We drove up to registration, they had our list on our reservation, and REASSIGNED us to our preferred site. Obviously they got our fax, and maybe it was a matter of timin
  3. +1 no boats. This place is a ghost town. Has that creepy feeling you get when you go somewhere that is going out of business. Everything you know and enjoyed about transportation, snacking, restaurants, rides, shows, entertainment, playgrounds, ambiance in general is about a 1/4 of what it was. Right down to the "furloughed" shaggy landscaping. Hopefully an influx of Halloween ghouls will give Disney the bump it needs to liven things up.
  4. Agreed, and, definitely not a good time to be a AP holder. It’s like buying a shiny new car, you drive it off the lot and the wheels fall off.
  5. Special passholder sneak peak preview for 7/9,10 popped up on my Android Tablet just now at 4:00 a.m. and never showed up on IPhone or laptop. Totally weird notification. Never got any sort of Disney notification on my tablet before only my phone. Of course it was full-LOL! I mean, what the heck, Corona numbers are skyrocketing in Florida, bars are closed again (including Disney Springs), masks are now mandatory AGAIN in some counties, beaches are closed this weekend in South Florida (more to follow) but hey, let's throw a private Corona Party Celebration at DW - whoo hoo! Maybe, just maybe, D
  6. Experiment: The Fort may be open BUT there is not a single day thru the end of March that will accept a reservation. As soon as you request April 1 sites are available. So it appears no new reservations until April but hoping that those already there get to stay and enjoy The Fort.
  7. We've done the border crossing dance numerous times over the past three years and you never know what the "rule of the day is"-LOL! The written rules are just a guideline that includes the word, "may". All depends upon the mood, friendliness, and political persuasion of the border agent on both sides of the border. As a general guideline, and it doesn't matter if it's a US or Canada crossing, we avoid having any fresh produce, meats or dairy in the refrigerator. Also, they don't always ask the " produce, meat, dairy" question but if they do answer honestly and be prepared to drive to their dum
  8. Just keeping up with the current trend and creating an additional revenue stream. On a ski trip to Utah this year, “Artesian Bread Baskets” started at $5.00 and went up from there. They were not worth the price-especially when it included crackers! “No bread for you”-LOL!
  9. During the Holiday Seasons we've always had the best and most enjoyable times taking advantage of the activities at The Fort and visiting the other resorts. Recently the MK special events have turned into the crown jewels of the greed machine and not what they used to be. For us, family and friends, the magic and the best times ever are always at The Fort.
  10. Interesting question and probably only Disney can answer if an rv can be parked at the cabins. Probably not so much an issue of adequate space as perception of it being used as a camper. I've never seen one parked in a cabin loop but there's a first time for everything. If you've rented 2 cabins for 11 people and there are sleeping accommodations for everyone on the reservation I think it would be a tough call on their part. We've rented a cabin for family, rv camped in a nearby loop, and rented a golf cart but never attempted to park the rv at the cabin. I would talk to them before making the
  11. Lucky you staying at St. Mary's campground. It's a really nice location right inside the entrance to the park. We visited there every evening for the campfire talks which were excellent. Also bears were seen quite frequently at the entrance to the campground. Lucky you again staying at Cottonwood in TRNP. We stayed at the Medora Campground and drove thru Cottonwood to check it out. Next time it would definitely be our preference over the Medora Campground. It would just take a bit more planning as it's a boondocking experience-potable water is available but no dump station. You've
  12. The big attraction of Glacier is driving Going to The Sun highway. Access is restricted to vehicles no longer than 21 feet and no trailers. Strictly enforced with good reason as its a spectacular drive. Historically it opens the end of June. But, if you are lucky and it's open, and I hope you are, be sure to drive to Logan's Pass and do the hike that starts at the Visitors Center. This is an early morning hike as the parking lot gets full very quickly. What campground have you booked? I've heard good things about West Glacier KOA. We stayed at the new West Glacier RV Park last summer which was
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
