momof3kids-Yvonne got a reaction from GaDawgFan.....Kelly in What is happening? Is FF dying out?
So part of what makes Fort Fiends so special to me is the Grand Gatherings both those at the Fort and those away from the Fort. I just posted a Fall Grand Gathering that will be happening in September. Check out the Grand Gathering thread for information on the Stone Mountain GG September 10-12.
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to Katman1356...Jason in Update to WDW Face Mask and Social Distancing policies effective June 15
Taken from a News Bulletin sent out to travel agents just a little while ago.
Within our communities, we’re encouraged that COVID-19 guidelines have been adjusted and eased by public health and government officials, paving the path for many businesses and industries to take positive steps forward.
As we have done since reopening, we’ve been very intentional and gradual in our approach to our COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Based on recent trends and guidance, Walt Disney World Resort will be making more adjustments to these measures, including physical distancing and face coverings.
Beginning June 15, you will start to notice the following changes:
Face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated Guests in most areas. Face coverings will still be required of all Guests on Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner. While we will not require proof of vaccination, we expect Guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, and upon entering and throughout all attractions and transportation. Guests must observe current policies on face coverings until June 15.
We will be relaxing physical distancing guidelines for Guests. This will be visible in places like queues, shops, restaurants, attraction boarding, transportation and our theaters. It’s important to remember that some experiences and entertainment may still be operating with limited capacity or may remain temporarily unavailable. We’re not quite ready to bring back everything yet, but we are optimistic and look forward to the day when Disney pals and princesses are able to hug once again.
We will continue the high standards for cleanliness and sanitation we’ve always set for ourselves. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer stations will still be available.
We encourage people to get vaccinated.

That makes EZ PASS good on all FL toll roads.
Florida's Turnpike Enterprise (FTE) is now accepting E-ZPass®, bringing interoperability to millions of toll highway customers on the East Coast of the United States and as far west as Illinois.

We stopped in here last weekend around 10:30 at night it was packed! This place is huge people had shopping carts full of stuff. My son did buy some beef jerky and drinks.
Nice clean bathrooms plenty of parking which is nice.

We haven’t been to Disney since 2018. Honestly we have no plans of returning any time soon. The cost of a Disney trip is equal to our seasonal site, so for us it’s a better way to spend our vacation funds. I feel bad that Squish hasn’t gotten to go at a age where she remembers more of it but I also can’t see paying full price for a lesser of experience. Legoland is opening in NY this month and we will probably go there this summer for a short trip once their hotel is opened. We have talked about going to Florida at some point, but Disney won’t be the main attraction (Discovery Cove, beaches, is what we are thinking).
hope everyone is doing well.

Yes but I would try for the end pumps
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to Grumpy and Grandma in College Program starts back in June
From FOX 35
Great news for college students who love Disney!
Disney has announced that the Disney College Program is returning in June.
Those students whose programs ended early or were suspended last year due to COVID-19 are being asked to reapply.
Disney said it has simplified its application process and modified its eligibility requirement so many who have already graduated can still apply

My brother was in journalism his whole life and he always said, "There are no more journalist, only copy writers, nobody researches the story".
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to lightbikes in HOOP DEE DOO Cast called back
Now this could be really exciting for us. Assuming Canadians will finally be allowed to cross the border my daughter has booked a campsite for eight of us to actually go to the Fort in January 2022. We have a new family member who has never been to WDW! And we (hubby and I) haven't stayed at the Fort in over 4 years. At this point all our fingers are crossed!!!
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to djsamuel in HOOP DEE DOO Cast called back
We were told a few weeks ago by a cast member that they are working on a family style approach to Trails End instead of a buffet. It will be interesting to see how they pull it off. I will really miss the way P&Js is set up now though.

Yes but really what a wonderful weigh to go !!!!
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to DaveInTN in The Decline of WDW...A Pictorial Illustration by DIT
Say what you want. Blame it on COVID. Blame it on greedy executives. Blame it on politicians. But I'm here to settle the argument. Blame for the decline of Disney can be placed with one group, and one group only.
The bakers. My proof?
I rest my case.

I can’t wait to see you!
momof3kids-Yvonne got a reaction from Live4FW in Stone Mountain Park Campground September 10-12, 2021
Crossing my fingers that you are able to make it.
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to MicknMin...Holly in Stone Mountain Park Campground September 10-12, 2021
Toby and I might be able to join you. If we don't end up camping, I'll at least stop by for a visit. We're only about 20 minutes away.
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to fladogfan aka Gretchen in What is happening? Is FF dying out?
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 just say let's go walk around a park on the spur of the moment. However, even tho many people and fiends said they felt very safe at WDW I still haven't even been back to Disney Springs let alone any parks. I do have my 'jabs' tho so hoping to be there soon, if I figure the system.

No promises but we will try to stop by on Saturday
momof3kids-Yvonne reacted to Lou... in What is happening? Is FF dying out?
I'd love to attend but I'd have to drive a whopping 45 minutes just to see some Fort Fiend knuckleheads. For those who remember me, I retired from Disney and now live north of Atlanta. I will show up at Stone Mt. to annoy as many of you as I can. It'll be just like old times at the Fort. And you thought you had gotten rid of me. I expect some apple pie.
