  1. This is excellent news. Last years Halloween event was an expensive disappointment.
  2. There are lots of fun things happening at the Fort.. I discovered that there are people who hide toys and other interesting things and then post them on Facebook for kids to find like a scavenger hunt. I was there yesterday and again today. These things have a good following. While the launches are still not running directly to the other hotels you can still get there to see the Easter eggs at the Grand Floridian but my favorite past time is to sip an adult beverage and watch someone try to back a way to big fiver or tt into a small full hook up site. I will then delve into a little self
  3. They are still practicing social distancing at the pool. I was there last week and found we could usually get in but there was a waiting line on friday so we left. I didn't buy any drings as I brought my own but the snack bar was open. There is no longer a cast member telling people on the golf carts to put on their masks but they do ask you to put a mask on the the trading posts and PJ's It has been announced that as of June 15 you will no longer be required to wear a mask in most places on property. I should also mention that the day temperatures are now around 95-96 so the pool is imp
  4. The same kitchen supports both the Hoop dee doo and the Trails End Restaurant. I hope this is a very good sign for things to return back to normal.
  5. My predictions are that much of the plexiglass will not go away. I hope they loose the plastic barriers in the monorail when the A/C's cant work properly. The cast members in the shows may be the last ones back but they will be back. There is a lot of stimulus checks out there burning holes in peoples bank accounts and new RV's waiting to be taken to the Fort. I bet it will be difficult to get in for at least a year, even in September. Life will be wonderful again when Trails End opens.
  6. A family friend who was a CM that was laid off has been informed she may be called back to work in April. I think before they open up the parks by increasing the daily reservations they may have to open more of the restaurant and show options to absorb more of the crowd. I also think that the local vaccination rate is being closely monitored and when the new infection rate shows a steady decline we may have even more opportunities to go back. I noticed that even with the reduced capacity the parks still seem crowded because there is less things for people to do. I'll be happy when the tram
  7. Not sure I would try with such a large rig. They have signs up at all the entrances stating no Trucks allowed. They do have diesel and DEF and I did not see anyone actually enforcing any rules. I didn't see anyone helping because it is all self serve.
  8. OK so I got my shots, I'm retired but we still need to wear a mask out in public and we can't get into the Magic Kingdom because of it being the Easter Season. I had to get out of the house. You know you are bored silly when the only thing you can think of doing is going to a new gas station that's 45 miles away. And that's how we found ourselves at Buc-ee's. If you are traveling south to I-4 you will drive right by it. Exit onto LPGA Blvd which is just a few miles north of the I-4 turnoff. The place is huge. It has 104 fueling pumps and 53,000Sq ft of retail space inside the store. Ga
  9. Hi Lesli. When are you booked to go? We will be there next Friday for a week. We like the sites along the canal in the 1600 and 1800 loops. I think the sites at the entrance of the full hook up sites are usually the largest but there is a lot of traffic in front of the sites. If you search on google maps for fort wilderness you will find Aerial views of the sites and there are complete descriptions of each site with pictures on this web site.
  10. I was recently at the Fort over the Halloween Season and noticed the same thing. I also noticed that many of the more permanent residents were not there as well. Maybe they all had to leave when they closed the Fort down at the beginning of this pandemic. I'm not sure. I'm hoping it wasn't some new management policy that encouraged them to leave.
  11. Thanks I'm going to do all three, call the suggested restaurants direct, and check out Disney Dining. I'm also going to disinvite the vegans to make the party smaller and then get a birthday cake from Publix and have it at the camp site.
  12. We are trying to get reservations for a big party (15-17) for dinner any place on property (Disney Springs or one of the hotels). We could sit at smaller tables. We don't need one table for everyone. We are not having any luck. There is one more degree of difficulty, four are vegans but I can't worry about that. We are pounding the app but are having no luck. Anyone have any suggestions? We will look into off site places if they are close by.
  13. Thanks for your report. I'll be their on August 12 for 5 days and again in the middle of October. I've heard from others that the pool is not crowded. That was going to be a deal breaker for us if that was closed. I understand that the Trails End is still closed but they have take out chicken. I hope your TT gets straightened out. I know how frustrating those mechanical problems can be.
  14. Does anyone know if the boat and bus schedules have been changed do to this soft reopening. The only thing that I've heard is that someone claims to have waited an hour on the pier for a boat to the MK. I've seen people take videos of themselves riding buses that don't seem crowded but how often to they run. I know the Trams aren't running yet in the park parking lots. I don't look forward to getting all my steps in before I even get to the MK or HS.
  15. This is an important thread to follow. I've had a reservation at the fort in August for over a year and I have not been cancelled. My wife was able to get reservations at DW and HS while we were there but it involved many hours on hold. Now we are thinking about cancelling because the first report we heard from the fort stated the pool was over crowded and Florida has not yet gotten the virus under control. We could be happy with just driving the cart around and hanging at the fort if the pool was doable. If there are people who have first hand experience at the fort it would be nice to h
