  1. Thank you for your answers! When I called Disney when I couldn't make FP, I asked about updating to a new ticket over the phone. She said she was in tech and didn't know much about tickets but she texted someone else while we made small talk about the Fort. The other person said because I bought them through Undercover Tourist I had to ask them to upgrade. I haven't yet, but am pretty certain they won't do that. I guess I can call Disney again but with the 20 minute wait time the last time I need to find time to do that.
  2. In October 2018 right before the date-based tickets system went into effect I bought 2 tickets from Undercover Tourist -- 4 day Parkhopper with extra day added for "free" to make a 5-day Parkhopper. I knew and understood that if I didn't use them by 12/31/2019 they would expire, but that I could then use the value toward another ticket based on the new pricing and would have to pay any difference. I intended to go in 2019, but that didn't happen. We are planning to go this Spring. I've done a bit of research but still have a couple of questions if anyone here has experienced. I can call Disney again but last time on hold time was over 20 minutes: - Do I get the value of a 5 day parkhopper even though it was a buy a 4-day and get another day free? - Do I need to bring any kind of receipt for them ? They are etickets but I have them printed out showing the barcode. I've also linked them in MDE. - Can I use the value toward a fewer day ticket in order to avoid paying any more? The 2020 price for a 5 day parkhopper on the days we plan to go is $145 more than the 2018 value of the now expired ticket based on the pricing I looked at. Can I drop down to using it toward a 4-day parkhopper and not have to pay that extra $145? I really only wanted 4 days to begin with since I want to spend some time visiting resorts. - I haven't been able to make FastPass reservations because the tickets have expired *. Is there any way to upgrade the now expired tickets to the current date tickets without having to be on property so that I can make FP reservations? (* strangely, we also have older non-expiring parkhopper Plus tickets that we used on two visits. At the end of the last visit I had someone there check and she said we'd used all the park days but still have a couple of Plus visits left. I'd thought we had a park day left but she read me a list of dates we'd used it and it did account for all 10 park days. But this time when I was trying to make FP reservations it let me make one day worth. When I called Disney last week to find out why it took one but not the others I was trying to make, she said I must have one park day left on those old non-expiring tickets if I was able to make FP. If so, I want to keep that day for another time and only use the newer expiring tickets on this visit. I will need to check that before entering the parks so the old ticket isn't used first.) Thanks!
  3. I don't know - paying only $89 on top of admission to not have to wait as long in line for It's A Small World sounds like a bargain to me. 😂
  4. As someone who has had a little bit of a panic about being on a cruise ship, I hope the fantastic time you are going to have will override any of those anxiety feelings. One thought about the kennel is there any way you can test leave your dog there on a prior trip so he's familiar with it a little bit when you have to leave him for real? May be good for both of you. I'm thankful my shelter dog feels that going to the kennel is like going to home so he's pretty good with it. But even he needed some getting used to the people there and the smell of that particular place.
  5. LOL I will admit that when I saw a trip report from you I also remembered "she's the one who does tea." I love the comments on the hippo observation chart. "Doing lots of mouth clapping throughout the day." Could be a human observation chart. I think I would love to do this tour, except maybe the heights and vultures. But they're Disney heights and vultures so can't be too scary I guess. Looking forward to more.
  6. I see it says if you use a credit card it's charged $4 and you get all 4. So if each of your 2 children want the same penny and you only have a credit card -- that's $8 for Disney!
  7. I stayed at the Fort in 1975 and 1977 when I was 13 and 15. As an adult I occasionally had a dream where I was on a train and there was a water tower. It was always a pleasant dream. A few years ago I watched a video of the train, I think posted here, and realized that was the train/water tower from my dream. So definitely had an impact on me!
  8. My dog has been practicing that spaghetti scene solo for several years now. Too bad they didn't discover him for this. We could be rich.
  9. This may be a dumb question, but I admit I don't understand how all this "magic" works, when they start carrying You Tube TV can I just add it to the Fire Stick I already have?
  10. Our last 2 kids are heading out to college so paying for cable + 4 cable boxes (plus Netflix and Amazon Prime), which really made no sense before, makes even less sense now. Our kids watched cable the most. Besides local news (which I mostly have on in the background when I'm cooking dinner) I usually watch Netflix or Amazon Prime or my few network shows a day or two later on their apps. My husband watches Netflix and random other things but mostly will watch whatever is on when he feels like watching. We are fairly rural but my husband bought a digital antenna and we can get NBC clearly with that for local news and weather. It's the local channel we watched the most anyway. I got an Amazon Fire Stick on Prime Day and it's a lot easier to use than I thought it was going to be. If we go with streaming I've read the best reviews about YouTube tv. But we may wait and see if we miss anything and possibly go with this in November.
  11. Interesting. We finally cut the cable cord two days and I've been researching alternatives.
  12. It's been a long time. Can someone remind me. I have an onsite reservation. Do I also need to have my tickets linked to my MDE account, in each person's name, before I can make FP+ reservations? I bought e-tickets through Undercover Tourist last year and haven't linked them to anywhere yet because I wasn't sure who was going to use them. Thanks!
  13. I make something similar where you mix a can of frozen lemonade and a tub of cool whip and put it in a graham cracker pie crust and freeze. Cold, tart and very sweet.
