  1. And my opinion is impatient local drivers and lost tourists. The impatients weave in and out of traffic going as fast as possible. (at times you are likely to end up at same exit with them just in front of you) Then we have the wonderful tourists and the locals who slow down to be able to read their phones. PULL OVER you fools. I-4 has been a nightmare to drive these past few years. It is getting better but is still under construction. I forget who first called the "construction of I-4" the Destruction of I-4. That has been what I've called it since. During the fir
  2. So, tried to check retired cast reservation system. Can't get past April and this is the first time ALL the parks are blocked to retired cast for the rest of April. Don't know about active cast. I know someone who has been successful getting res. so will ask him. But ....Grrrrrrrr
  3. I agree with what you all are saying. Good to 'see' you Lou and TCD so glad your girls have found other jobs. Their youth and education probably helped them. I know former cast members with years at WDW in salaried and 'helping' Tigger positions and they still trying to find a new job. Two in my neighborhood went ahead and retired, at least that freed up a couple jobs. I haven't even tried to get a reservation to get in a park yet. Now have learned I need to navigate that system to make, if possible, resies for out of town friends coming in Sept. rats I hate not being able to ju
  4. Good luck to you. I hope they allow you to spend $$$$$ at their stations. I want the tater chips!
  5. And my friend is lucky, she is in a position to wait for the job she loves to be available.
  6. A friend who 'helped' Tigger got a call back for a job of loading rides. Not what she is trained to do.
  7. Cortizone cream takes the itch out of fire ant bites for me. Sometimes I use clear ammonia on fresh bites, it seems to lesson the itching and/or stinging.
  8. A security guard reminded a guest to put on his mask before he walked into Disney World’s Contemporary Resort near the Magic Kingdom last month. “I’m a guest,” argued the middle-aged, fedora-wearing man. He asked to be left alone. Then he spat, and some of his saliva hit the guard’s forehead. It was one of several confrontations on Disney property in recent weeks as some guests have angrily refused to follow Disney’s pandemic safety rules. Some of the situations have led to arrests, although not in the case of the spittin
  9. Happy Birthday Miss Olivia. You sure are in a good place to celebrate your birthday.
  10. Too early in month for Christmas crowds. Maybe you just hit it lucky.
  11. Remember when they stopped building those hotels back when the money troubles hit? When the money started flowing again they were finished. I keep hearing that the big guys took cuts early on but now have been paid bonuses or maybe regular salaries. Do any of you know the truth or fiction behind that rumor?
  12. Gwen, it is different from days gone by. During lock-down I drove to Longwood during usually very busy rush hour time, traffic was missing. It's picking up now. Maybe it was so slow for you because of holiday time?
  13. WOW! There were signs saying surface lots were closed, guess they changed that.
  14. A few days ago we were on our way home and the line of stopped cars heading into Disney Springs was loooong. All directions. Wondered if Disney let them in the parking garages?
  15. Good to see you report. I think you were here at the coldest (so far) temps we have had. Good thing you had layers to don, even then it was too cold for you Sorry about the hand and I agree a lot of old age stuff is NO fun at all.
  16. It's a good site. Anyone can buy from the members. A couple of neighbors have used pressure washing services for their homes.
  17. I saw something about this, maybe in the Orlando Sentinel. Hope you had a good time and without crowds.
  18. Gwen, just noticed you were scheduled to be here til Dec. 15. Hope your trip home is/was uneventful and that storm leaves you alone.
