  1. We were staying there from June 12 to June 22nd. The area near the beach defintely looks like they are clearing it and we heard equipment moving things in the area. Also, on Tuesday, they were driving new fence posts at a point about even with the end of the Trails End building closest to the lake. My guess is they are working to fence off the area from Trails End up to the road and remove the fencing around the area near the lake. We could look through the fence and there are a lot of flags placed around the area between Trails End and the lake. They are definitely planning on doing
  2. Same here. I haven't noticed that before.
  3. We're in at least one of the parks about once a week on average. Since the re-opening, the wait times have been estimated by the length of the standby lines. They have usually seemed to be about 10 minutes longer than actual, unless the ride is stopped a few times while waiting in line. Since Genie+ started, the wait times for some attractions have increased significantly while others seem to have dropped. For example, last Thursday, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was a 70 minute wait, Haunted Mansion was about a 45 minute wait while Pirates was a 5 minute wait. The length of the stand by lines
  4. Unless it changed, the number is 407-824-2727
  5. Yes, as far as I know those ordinances are still in place. You are right; that pretty much stopped the overnighting around here. It is also prohibited in Lake County. The last year it was allowed in Lake County, the Walmart on Rt 27 near 192 looked like an RV dealer. I guess that is what prompted the change.
  6. The Cracker Barrels nearby really aren't conducive to overnighting. No Cabella's in the area and the nearest Bass Pro Shop is up on International Drive. I don' know if I'd want to try that location, and doubt if they'd allow it (although I don't know for sure). Not sure when you're coming, but a state park like Lake Louisa might have openings in their campground at a reasonable price. Lake Louisa is in Lake County about a 30 - 40 minute drive from Disney.
  7. The road is still used, as Jason said. When riding the bus, you can see where the hiking trail was. All asphalt is gone but there are some drainage culverts that have been installed and signs that eventually the trail will return. Who know how long it will be delayed since Reflections is certainly not close to starting or being cleaned up. I did see last Sunday that some flags were placed along the trail marking piping or wiring, but have no idea if that is related to any progress on bringing the trail back.
  8. Just there yesterday. Jason is correct; the boats are not running, and there is no movement on opening the trail. It is not paved at this point with no preparation underway. The bus isn't bad right now. Just pick up the yellow bus that is heading twards the Settlement from the Outpost. From the Settlement it continues to Wilderness Lodge. Never have an issue and use it frequently.
  9. Other than the parking, it is hard to find anything wrong with the Old Mill. The restaurant is great, as is the Pottery House Cafe nearby. Never tried the Applewood Farmhouse restaurant.
  10. Not many in the federal government either. I'm third in seniority at my activity and will be retiring in December with 41 years. The two above me have 43. Most everybody else bail before 15.
  11. We were there on the 15th. Creations Shop is a really nice store.
  12. I'm retiring in December after 41 years of civil service with the Navy. I'll get a few certificates. I am getting a flag flown over our building, but my boss has to pay for that. I didn't ask for one but she is insisting; which is nice of her to do.
  13. That is pretty much my wife's feelings. Retired after 17 years and enjoying the benefits. She has no regrets about working for them, just wishes some of the day to day was smoother and management was more consistent. But all in all, she does not regret those years.
