  2. Yes, the rumors are out there. Here is the latest from chipandco.com and wdwmagic.com. http://www.chipandco.com/great-movie-ride-hollywood-studios-closing-permanently-271677/ Rumor has it Disney’s iconic attraction The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios may be permanently closing it doors? A forum post was shared on WDW Magic that Disney has chosen not to renew TCM’s sponsorship of The Great Movie Ride. The sponsorship is set to come to an end in 2018. It’s still unknown that will become of the classic attraction or the structure which opened May 1, 1989. Disney’s plans likely involve the development of the upcoming Toy Story and Star Wars Lands. However, it is unknown exactly what will become of the structure or if it will remain at all. As of right now these are simply rumors swirling and there has been no confirmation from Disney. article credit: wdwmagic.com, chipandco.com and Kristen Kelly

  4. A good friend and fiend, Jim Pecoy, is in need of blood donations. He is a really neat camping buddy and has been to many-a-gathering. He has had 14 pints of blood since the beginning of February. Please help our veteran Fiend by taking a small amount of your time and donating a pint of blood in his name. Even though he is in Florida, every bit counts and hopefully they will contact the local hospital and let them know his group of Fiends are helping out. Please, if you can, post a picture of you helping so we can share with his family. Thanks so much in advance, The Moderators(Fairies) and Admins at Fortfiends.net Please click below (I hope it will let you see) for the Facebook posts. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156254152131033&set=a.10151962492891033&type=3&theater https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156248773356033&set=a.10150236998316033&type=3&theater
  5. Ok, it is that time of the decade again and our tires are at the age, not tread wear, that they need to be replaced. SuperGeek is wanting to get Crosswinds tires for our Monaco. I need honest opinions from those who have had a class A diesel on tires. I don't want to spend this kind of money and be on the side of the road. We currently have BF Goodrich and they have been wonderful. Thanks in advance and be nice...I know they are from China. PS: Supergeek cannot find anything telling him they are bad, so I am asking here.
  6. According to a Facebook source, (and I cannot confirm this until I get there at the end of the week), all the rented Disney scooters have had a governor and object detection system put on them. This is in MK only right now and will be implemented to all parks by end of May. The story was that a disabled person was at the Keys to a Kingdom tour and was riding a rented scooter. Because it had the detection system on it, it was jolting her to a stop every time someone passed in front of her. She had to leave the group finally because she could not keep up. I foresee nightmares "a comin" when the parks are really crowded.
  7. The Wild Womenz will absolutely love this (as it is a hot spot for WW during WWW) http://blogmickey.com/2019/03/trader-sams-grog-grotto-and-tiki-terrace-move-to-earlier-opening-times/?fbclid=IwAR3LIPuxsOzk0LveritWzZzYziTfISKIScrdEfQ83OM071gwn-Drm7-OJps for pics and maps, please click on the link

    Disney Springs News

    My son is super excited for this place. Since he is a teenager, he is old enough to go without me. I will make supergeek take him. Basketball is not my sport, however, I am sure it will make loads of people happy.
  12. When we are with Fiends that have the smaller scooters, people are much less aggressive towards the people on the scooters. I believe the rented scooters are too large for the space and functionality of what they were made for. IMHO

  15. Considering all of the rooms at Disneyland are booked because of Star Wars, the sooner you book (when you can) the better.

    Look at this genius

    You know those rules and regulations the mom signed? Yeah, obviously she thought they were suggestions.

    Anyone need a new rig?

    With that thing, would you not have to stop at all the weigh stations? lol
  22. My dad and my sister's father-in-law were on scooters last year when they went. Both of them have severe back problems and have had surgery, so they cannot keep up with my sister's family, who are all under the age of 10. The rudeness goes both ways, as they wanted to go slow because they were learning the scooters. There were families (mostly younger) cussing the two of them out because they "weren't going fast enough". I told my dad that from now on, we would rent them a wheelchair. I have noticed, just from my personal observations, that if you are pushing someone in a wheelchair, people react to that in a more positive way than a scooter. Just my opinion however.
  23. I was watching a video of the "breaking news" last night. There must have been an article afterwards. I haven't seen it on the major news sources, but I will definitely confer with my sources later on this week. With them going to limit strollers as well by May, it does go along with the theme.

    Heads Up Dole Whip Fans!

    Have you guys seen the prototype soft serve ice cream machine that LG is considering making? It does work on those pods like the coffee makers, but considering I have been outbid on so many actual ice cream machines for my dole whip obsession, this may be an option. lol https://949thebull.iheart.com/content/2019-03-13-lg-is-rolling-out-a-keurig-like-machine-that-will-make-soft-serve-ice-cream/?sc=editorial&pname=local_social&keyid=WUBL&fbclid=IwAR07JRsWZYIWDOh5_hdjmwFJDMnHsQ7Id0meRSnQ19YXtMZdgnNrQt-UNN8

    MK Commemorative Bricks for Sale

    Ok, I know that if I was a person who owned a brick, I would be pissed. However.... From the perspective of someone who has literally kicked herself since the late 90's for NOT buying one, I am all in? Why? Because I was actually researching places on where I could get one custom made for us. Now, I don't have to and I can get a couple for a fraction of the price I was looking at crazy folks who would even consider such a venture. Yes, call me insane if you would like, but I have wanted one of these FOREVER it seems. It is one of those items I cannot explain, but to say ok, I give in to the greed. I will be in line next week to get mine.
