    Happy Birthday Miz Fiz!

    Thank you everyone for all the spectacular birthday wishes, magic and sound advise (thanks Wi !!) It has been an amazing year and it only gets better from here. So hang on everybody, cause this is one the craziest rides in the universe and if you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong. Tally Ho !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have water and breakfast/snacks delivered to the room. Always leave with a bottle of water in the morning. Kids meals at quick service places are usually more than enough food (and healthier options)! AP discounts too. At SSS most times someone has tables in wonderland for 20% off, I really appreciate that! Also use Disney gift cards bought at a discount to pay off room and folio bill before I leave. Five percent is five percent!!

    Happy Birthday Miz Fiz!

    So another birthday. As an old guy, I feel the responsibility to pass on a bit wisdom as you grow another year (stop laughing ALL OF YOU): 1)Don't begin sentences with "Nowadays." 2)Happy Hour is not a nap. 3) Wine improves with age. We improve with wine. 4) People with the most Birthdays tend to live the longest. Happy Birthday to my favorite redhead!

    With the renovated rooms, all rooms now should have coffeemakers. At POP they have cusinart coffeemakers, and since All Stars are getting the same refurb, I would assume they will get the same. I'm so thankful for morning coffee!!!

    I do bring a water bottle that I refill as well. It saves a lot of money on buying water. I use my Disney Visa card a lot while down there as well to get a percentage off.

    Beginner streaming Qs...

    Kicking around the idea of trying to do some streaming during a December trip and have a couple Qs... I have a spare/old cell phone that I have thought of using, for, say, a resort stream. Is this workable? I have experimenting a bit with streaming though my own YouTube channel and it seems to do the job. I may also, possibly, have a new GoPro by that time. The new one offers live streaming over wifi. I understand it's limited to a 720p resolution though. Are folks doing 1080 or 720? Or both/either as conditions allow? Second, has the WiFi at the resorts and around the parks been adequate for streaming? We don't have a ton of mobile data so, curiious if this is usable at the resorts and at the parks. Finally, does anyone have experience streaming at the DL Resort area? Our December trip starts in Orlando then Anaheim before coming home!

    I guess I'm the opposite. I'll save throughout the year and then not have to worry about the money I spend at WDW. My feeling is that I'm on vacation and if I want something, I'll buy it.

    Beginner streaming Qs...

    Kicking around the idea of trying to do some streaming during a December trip and have a couple Qs... How exciting that you are considering joining our stream team! There are lots of support people here on EoE. They've helped us so much!!! I have a spare/old cell phone that I have thought of using, for, say, a resort stream. Is this workable? I have experimenting a bit with streaming though my own YouTube channel and it seems to do the job. I may also, possibly, have a new GoPro by that time. The new one offers live streaming over wifi. I understand it's limited to a 720p resolution though. Are folks doing 1080 or 720? Or both/either as conditions allow? We have used a spare/ old cell phone for a resort stream. It does work. I have never set resolution. We use whatever we get which is usually 720p Second, has the WiFi at the resorts and around the parks been adequate for streaming? We don't have a ton of mobile data so, curiious if this is usable at the resorts and at the parks. We always use Disney WiFi for our resort streams. We used a Verizon mobil hot spot and purchased data for our trips until this past September when our cell phone plan changed and we got unlimited data. We have not had good luck with Disney WiFi in the parks. Finally, does anyone have experience streaming at the DL Resort area? Our December trip starts in Orlando then Anaheim before coming home! We have resort streamed from Paradise Pier and the Grand Californian using Disney WiFi. On our first trip we were not very successful getting WiFi in the DLR. We used the Verizon mobile hot spot in the parks for our 2nd trip. Seems like there were some dead spots in the parks. Thanks for considering streaming for us! We really enjoy streaming. Hope you do too!

    I still need to figure out why I could not get access to the EoE channel that Fiz set me up with on our past trip or else I will never be able to stream on here again. Is there any way we could do some testing Fiz before January 25 Fiz? Maybe set me up with a channel that's not getting used but don't stream it here or something.

    Great ideas, flounder! We always have breakfast in the room. OH brings a hotpot so I can make tea and Via (Starbucks instant coffee) if we stay in a resort with no coffee maker. When we camp, we rarely eat out. Kids' meals! Great idea, too. If you're lucky enough to have APs/DVC, always ask about discounts.

    Also getting tickets that are 1 park per day, park hoppers do add a lot to your ticket. Having said that, we always do park hoppers lol.

    I gotta be nuts!

    I have started the preliminary art planning for two trips to wdw in 2021. It’s gonna take all three years from now to pull this off financially. 1st trip will be in June for my daughter. 13 nights, 14 days. Pricing it out almost $9000 for three for that duration. Then add spending money, airfare, AP ticket upgrades (you can see where this is going). Then second trip will be in December. Hoping for Christmas week. Another $3000 to $4000 for 6 nights. Ok my wallet just fainted again.

    Lots of Disney experts here...what do you do to SAVE money at WDW? There are lots of ways to spend tons, but what do you do to save? One thing we've done is started packing lunches!! I take a small, collapsible lunch bag and pack things like lunchables, fruit, cookies and use frozen bottles of water as ice (to drink later). Spending $30 or $35 for a counter-service lunch is unacceptable!!

    For resort, I save by always getting the discount code they offer which is usually around 30% for the time of year we usually go.
