  1. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/nn76/Tri-Circle-D/1F92DF7E-2C2D-4088-B4D3-66A5C2223AB6.jpeg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds For some reason your link didn’t work for me, Andrew, so I’ve tried to post a clickable link above. I find the scheduling odd in that, in a month in which they show Encanto, those chose to schedule Raya and the Last Dragon on Cinco de Mayo.
  2. I agree, carriage ride would be good. Or maybe on beach during fireworks?
  3. Oh, "seminar". Is that what they call it so it's tax deductible? 😄 Hope you are having a good trip!
  4. Dolly is ok with hopping. In fact, it’s encouraged.
  5. Someone is going to get fired over that one. They left off the zero...it was supposed to be $59.50!
  6. In my head it is as fresh as ever. At least that's what the voices in there tell me.
  7. My sources inside the Walt Disney Company tell me that Bob Iger, toward the end of his retirement address to fellow Cast Members, made an announcement that will have massive implication to CM's and Guests of WDW for years to come! Just before closing his address, he announced the construction of a 5TH GATE at WDW! He then let slip the name of this upcoming 5th theme park....Cinnamon Roll Kingdom!! Happy New Year everyone!
  8. Couple of comments. First, that's some nose on that dog! I'll have to keep that in mind when I encounter explosive sniffing dogs. Hasn't happened to me to this point. Second, my mouth is watering over that duck! Peking Duck is one of my favorite dishes...I love finding an authentic restaurant that carves it up tableside. So delicious. I like duck in general, but prepared that way is so good. I also enjoy a good roasted duck with sauerkraut. But, as you noted, it can be quite fatty. When prepared properly in a Chinese place I think a lot of the fat renders out of it and it's
  9. For some reason that made me chuckle. Then I was wondering if anyone threw toast at the stage, but I guess I’m confusing it with another show.
  10. Thank you. I’m sure most readers know those acronyms but I haven’t paid much attention to the details of the Genie system so it was all Greek to me.
  11. Your last update makes me realize how long it’s been since I’ve been to WDW, and how much has changed. I need some help…LL? VQ? BatB? I know what Rat is because I’ve read about it but otherwise you could be talking about a theme park in Bangladesh and I’d be no more lost. 😂
  12. First off, let me say it's great to see a trip report here. Enjoying reading it! But I also have to say, regarding the part I quoted above...I don't know what any of that means but it sounds like the garbage I deal with at work every day. Technology that is supposed to make things better doesn't work as intended, and we waste more time trying to find a workaround than it would have taken to do it the old way. Why would I want to do that on vacation??
  13. In broad macroeconomic terms, it’s not surprising that there are more people willing to purchase APs, even at increased prices, than Disney wants to sell. This is no different than many consumer goods that are sold out and unavailable. Simply speaking there is more cash in the economy than places or things to spend it on. The government has added historic amounts of liquidity to the markets. It has driven stock prices up, and we’ve all seen what the housing market has done. Same with food, cars…and yes, Disney World. But never fear, a recession will come and these trends will change. Th
  14. Well shoot, we haven’t tried that one. Darn, more ice cream I need to eat. 😂
  15. I think 2 days at Dollywood will be enough. However, take a look at ticket prices for 2 and 3 days, and compare to season pass prices, as some years if you buy a season pass in December you get the next year free. Of course if a return trip in 2022 isn't in the cards then that doesn't help you. As far as other things to do, if the weather is cooperative, I recommend Anakeesta in Gatlinburg. We also enjoyed the Titanic exhibit. If you are looking for snow activities, Ober Gatlinburg is worth a look. I'd recommend having lunch or dinner at the Old Mill restaurant, and/or the App
  16. But Club Cool recently reopened with help-yourself push button beverage machines that people will be touching all day while drinking from saliva coated cups. Makes perfect sense.
  17. Well when I attend the 100th birthday celebration at the Magic Kingdom I’ll be sure to keep an eye out.
  18. What are the odds of someone hired at Disney World in 2021 still working there in 2071?
  19. And...that duck pizza is making me hungry. mmmmmm, duck.... Don't tell Donald.
  20. Wasn't that area more "cattle pasture and swamps" than citrus groves? Not sure that's a solid basis for a drink menu, though.
  21. Scroll down to Steakhouse 71 Lounge here and it’s mentioned. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/contemporary-resort/steakhouse-71/
