  1. Yep. I can count the number of rope drops I've seen on one hand, and often we don't get to the parks until noon. But we also pick our park of the day based on what's open the latest. I think I've only ever ridden Peter Pan after midnight (I refuse to wait an hour and don't generally waste a FP on it.) lol I'd love for those late hours to return - after midnight almost everything was a walk on and the parks were so cool at night when they weren't crowded - but short of paid events like this, I doubt that will happen.
  2. Oooh, pick me!! I have more than a few photos of the Main Street clock at 1am, 2am, and one time, 3am! Those late nights were super fun. I miss them.
  3. It's been a few years now since we've done MNSSHP - which we love - but that was our experience the last few years that we did it too. The first couple of times we went the crowds were really nice - lots of walk ons, plenty of good parade viewing - but they felt busier and busier each year.
  4. Well this isn't encouraging, "...Cast Members at the station seem pretty unaffected by the event, as if it happens often." What the Fort?
  5. (Context: I've lived my entire life in New England, the last 30 years in southern NH) Temp ranges can swing about a bit as already noted, and in my experience, when it's "cold" in FL, it's a damp cold, which affects me a lot more than our icy, dry cold up this way. That said, I've tent camped at the Fort in January and gone from needing the electric heater and an extra fleece blanket inside my sleeping bag on the first night, to sleeping with just a sheet and the fan blowing 3 nights later. So... anything goes! Layers are your friend, and if you're not from cold places (like here in
  6. From the Disney Parks Blog - https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/05/watch-live-a-celebration-of-festival-of-the-lion-king-opens-may-15/?fbclid=IwAR37xl0rh90GZteC1eL8VJkiD2ZpqlKRuhYOetfhpQ8Dd607hfrwpmRjjGA
  7. Makes sense. The more we go, the longer we're there, the less we spend on stuff. These days aside from meals, we mostly buy popcorn and dole whips in the parks. lol And if I want a new t-shirt or sweatshirt (because I've finally blown a hole through one of the eleventy I already have), we head to the Character Warehouse outlets.
  8. Not a surprise at all. DL has much bigger percentage of local regular guests than WDW, and I know if I could just "pop by" the parks any ol' time, I probably would spend a fraction of what we do when we're there for 2-3 weeks once a year. The time we spent 6 weeks there (with APs) our biggest daily expense was our campsite. We did eat out in the parks/DS, but not nearly as much as we normally would, and we bought hardly any "stuff." FWIW (which might not be much) I have seen some of the typically-somewhat-correct-at-guessing bloggers saying that they expect that now that WDW has increas
  9. from the Disney Parks Blog... https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/05/more-exciting-dining-options-to-return-to-walt-disney-world-resort/?CMP=SOC-DPFY21Q3wo0429210087A&fbclid=IwAR1050ZGZoqeFJxDFBAYzqi2qOoFpZiIRHfXAzdNpoWIdUbPJJovGKg2ql8
  10. Not surprising. That's a LOT of people to sort out and get in place all at once, and I'm guessing that's a bigger priority that what it will take to retrain a bunch of them in new positions.
  11. I've been stalking different versions of this print on eBay for ages. On the rare occasion one pops up, it goes for a boatload of $$$.
  12. Fair point. And they may be calling people back in a particular order as jobs open up (seniority, availability, etc.) - i.e., not necessarily who had the job last but who is at the front of the line to call.
  13. Yeah that is also the thing I'm seeing in some of the people being called back - they're being called back for jobs other than what they were doing before. One person claimed that Disney called them 4 times.
  14. I'm seeing a number of CMs on FB reporting in just the last week or 2 that they're getting called back.
  15. Yep (and ew). Although as baked goods in a can go, the Aldi brand ones are pretty good (better than Pillsbury at least).
  16. Yep! And those little buggers are the itchiest. It helps me a wee bit, but not much. I eventually found out out that if I pop an antihistamine it works better.
  17. Oops, sorry - didn't mean to blame you for the Key Bridge LOL. I Crazy enough, we actually did tow our very first big camper over/through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/tunnel. What's even more bananas is that we had no idea what we were doing at the time and didn't even have the tow setup completely corredt - I don't think we even had sway bars!! (Talk about not knowing what you don't know.) We survived, but it may definitely have led to DH's bridge-phobia. I'd have to bring a suitcase full of Xanax.
  18. DH is not a fan of the Key Bridge in DE. If he's awake when I'm driving I go the inland loop instead. It was a doozy, one I hope to never repeat, and we were incredibly lucky. Thanks to seatbelts and the dogs being crated, we avoided the fate of all of our stuff which was strewn across about 50 yards of highway.
  19. Oh and I am not showing this to DH. He already hates towing over high bridges and always asks me to move to the middle lane.
  20. Wow is for sure. That. Is. Bananas. I can only imagine what it took to get the people and dogs out safely. I've been in a a wreck where we flipped on the highway towing a 33' camper with a Lincoln Navigator (so about 50' end to end). Every window in the truck was busted except for the rear left. We basically rolled to one side and I think would have kept rolling if the camper hadn't yanked us back the other way and then dragged us to the side of the road with it (it had damage on one side only). Both humans and 3 dogs walked away with no real injuries, but I know how terrifying
  21. That sounds like completely insane shopping amusement park... annnnnnnd I'm writing it on my list for our next trip.
