  1. Reportedly, last night was the last night for Crockett's Tavern...

  3. Congrats to your daughter, TCD. We too loved our time spent at the fort, but I don't see us going back for quite a while. The last annual passes we bough (ca. 2017?) were about $800. As you said, though, Disney always wins. We've been traveling around the country more lately looking at colleges, and taking in the national parks. Looking at maybe a trip to Ireland next year if the world doesn't fall apart before then.
  4. Officially canceled our trip for the 50th. Too much uncertainty in Florida, too expensive, and we're really on a downward spiral with feelings for the mouse lately. Plus, we just lost my father and need to get my mom on solid footing. Way too many other places to visit and see, life is too short.
  5. The Morocco pavilion was always one of the quiet spots to visit in EPCOT, and the food was always very good. This makes me sad.
  6. Our apple tree has been EXTREMELY prolific this summer. Enjoy our favorite Apple Crisp and Apple Butter recipes below. Apple Crisp: (4 servings, can be doubled) 6 apples - peeled, cored and sliced* 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 cup brown sugar 3/4 cup quick oats 3/4 cup AP flour 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup cold butter 1. Preheat oven to 35 degrees. 2. Toss apples with sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to coat; pour in to 9" square pan (if doubling recipe, use 9x13 pan). 3. Mix brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1 tsp cinnamon in a separa
  7. I got this info from a music management guy that I met at the fort that happened to spend a month there a few years back.:
  8. Guess I'm lucky to have booked my trip before the World blew up - we're booked for a few days starting 9/29/2021...

  10. Looks like Reflections may be on hold, or even canceled... https://blogmickey.com/2020/06/rumor-reflections-a-lakeside-lodge-disney-vacation-club-property-has-been-cancelled/
  11. Yes! We're at 24 next year. We've never been able to stay at the poly before, so we're going all out to be there for the actual 50th. Should be fun - and completely nuts I'm sure. Glad we got our reservation in before they shut everything down this week - I hit 499 days and dialed it right up!
  12. No fall food & wine trip this year. Too many uncertainties. BUT, we're officially booked for fall 2021! We'll be there for the 50th. First time staying at the Poly!
  13. Rumor as of yesterday is June 1 opening.

  15. Artist Point was by far our favorite before it closed; Cali Grill was always great too but harder to get in to. It's definitely slipped a notch. Other than the view, IMHO it's not worth the cost. Go to Morimoto Asia for better sushi and Le Cellier or Don Shula's for better steaks....
  16. Having visited it twice last week, I have a few thoughts also. I'll preface it by saying we did NOT do the smuggler's run ride so this is more about the cantina and some general observations. First time (Wednesday) it wasn't super crowded, and we had reservations at Oga's. It's really tough to get your bearings unless you've been there a few times, and even then it's confusing. CM's were handing out maps at the entrance by Baseline Taphouse. You check in and then wait in line for your name to be called. We stood at the bar and had a great time. The staff and bartenders were great a
  17. Ate at the California Grill last week. Service was good, but the dinner was just OK. The menu has definitely changed and seems kind of disjointed - they've got the cedar plank salmon and bison steak now from Artist Point on the menu, and the rest of it seems like a collection of hits from other places. The bison steak was excellent, but my wife had a lobster and scallops dish that was way overseasoned and the flavors didn't seem to mesh well. No specials, either. Our friends had some sushi, which was excellent, but overall it seems to have dropped a notch. We haven't eaten there since Bri
  18. It could also be a 'Target Express', similar to the ones near college campuses. They usually have groceries and a limited selection of housewares and clothing...
  19. Holy cow, those new cabins are right on top of the existing playground. Don't know if I'd pay $2000 a night to stare at the side of Crockett's Tavern, either...
