  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 ?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. "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.
  11. 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.
  12. We went to Busch Gardens for a concert once and they actually has us parked in the overflow lot at Adventure Island. I'll never do that again! Is that the overflow lot you are referring to? The crowds were totally unmanageable.
  13. Thanks for the update. At least that answers the question about what was happening months ago on the waterfront behind the Discovery Center. It used to be our favorite "quiet" spot to get in some shade and relax for a while. Was so disappointed when it was closed off during our last visit. But, this is exciting news for coaster people!
  14. Checkmate! Locked up the lucrative Orange County Convention Center area. Now if the South Florida train comes to fruition with a stop at the Orange County Convention Center they've showed their hand. Not to mention they are a "Gold Key Attraction Sponsor" of the Convention Center. Good move, Universal and Orange County. Done and done.
  15. All depends upon how sensitive your body is to drinking water other than what you have at home. Disney World/Orlando water is well known to be the culprit causing what is known as the "Disney Trots". The water smells of sulfur and has a strong aftertaste. It can be pretty harsh for some people and ruins many a vacation. I'm one of those people that can't tolerate it and as a result I simply rely on bottled water to drink. I have even had issues with the drinking fountains in the parks. You can get a cup of filtered ice water at any quick service counter in the parks but local laws do not allow them to refill your bottle. Although I've heard at the Pandora Na'vi River ride in Animal Kingdom they now have the first filtered water bottle refill station so hopefully they will continue to place them throughout the parks. I've never tried using a filter but I'm sure others may be able to give you advice on that. Your question should cause quite a conversation as the quality of the water at DW gets discussed a lot but that alone should be your clue that it is definitely something to ponder. If you don't have any issues when you travel drinking " different" water then you'll probably be OK but if your like me and have a low tolerance stick to bottled water. Enjoy your visit!
