    I am doing one of two things....In the morning.....Sitting at a table outside the Electric Umbrella with a Starbucks iced drink listening to Epcot music, watching the fountain and the people hurrying to get to their first ride OR in the afternoon/evening I have a grand marnier slushie in my hand sitting in a shady spot with Wherespluto people watching Either way I am in Epcot!

    Emma's heart

    Emma came through her surgery and is fighting with all her might! They have her on life support, but her father sent a message saying she woke up twice today and squeezed his hand and they take that as a good sign. She received her first heart transplant 3 years ago to the day yesterday. We are all praying that it might have been a sign from somewhere above that they wanted her to have another chance. schoolbelle came through with some great pictures for me to send Emma and her dad said they will be one of the first things she sees. Thanks again SchoolBelle & newharmony! Thanks everyone for the prayers!

    Taking this a bit more seriously, I'm sitting on my balcony in the early morning with my first cup of coffee, enjoying the wonderful Boardwalk view. Crescent Lake is as smooth as a mirror with the Boardwalk buildings reflecting off the water. By my second cup of coffee, I can clearly smell the reassuring odors coming from Boardwalk Bakery, the Boardwalk music almost imperceptively has begun, and Friendship boats come around the bend quietly gliding to their new morning destinations. The day begins.

    I have this recurring dream of running up and down along side a bar with a crazed man singing and playing a piano and people laughing at me ("at me" not "with me"). A nightmare actually. Oh yeah......a glass of red wine.

    MrHub at the Poly

    Hello from the Poly. Well, as you see I have been doing some mobile streaming, but we got a full on room view of the quiet pool so I'm not going to be doing any streaming from our room. Fiz, I'm sorry but I will try to do some mobile streaming just sitting on a bench or something at the Poly to get you some footage. You can always use one of the ones I already have too. it is HOT! & HUMID!. But we don't mind, just taking things easy. Did MK yesterday until 11pm and HS this morning. Got a thunderstorm coming in now and we are back in the room chilling, waiting to go to the Cali Grill for dinner! Catch you all in a bit, will stream from there maybe. MrHub

    I'm pretty sure I just had breakfast at Trails End in Fort Wilderness and now I'm catching a snooze on one of the rocking chairs on the porch. Then I'll be taking a stroll over to the barn to say Howdy to all my equine friends before moseying over to the Trading Post to check out the latest in Fort Wilderness merchandise and must haves. What a lovely morning indeed.

    I'm strolling through the Animal Kingdom walking trails, camera in hand. No, wait, I'm walking through the gardens in the United Kingdom pavilion, camera in hand. Ah, who am I kidding. I'm sitting in Adventureland, people watching and enjoying a Dole Whip, camera hanging around my neck.

    Blue Heron Cam

    It would be nice to have a live cam here on EoE...it gives us a "gathering place". I often think that any resort stream I put up is more a vehicle for us to get together than a window to WDW.

    While a subscriber campaign push is a good idea, it seems very hard for those who stream less often to reach the 1000 subs eligibility. If you can't stream live, then you are at a great disadvantage to get subscribers (did Youtube really think this one through?) I would like to offer the following suggestion as to how to proceed: 1. Keep one or two of the Youtube channels active for resort streaming since there is no eligibility requirement for webcams/computers. Also, those streams can remain active for long periods of time. 2. For mobile streams, I would suggest utilizing the already established EoE Facebook page. The page is already established and has over 2000K followers so it would be fairly easy to reach viewers when there are live streams. . Streamer permissions could be assigned at the time streaming requests are submitted (for the length/duration of their trip) It's easy to use and it is FREE! Notifications are more reliable than Youtube Video quality has improved a lot since live streaming first started on FB. The Facebook live streams do include a chat feature The Facebook page could be used to promote upcoming streams Other sites started with Facebook and then expanded to Youtube. Use the Facebook page to promote and redirect viewers to any live Youtube streams and encourage them to subscribe and get notifications. The only drawback, of course, is the inability to embed streams to the EoE site......but that was true for Youtube if the 1000 eligibility requirement had not been met. Maybe this isn't an ideal solution, but given the current situation, it would be easy to implement and promote. Other options might include sites like Periscope (not a fan) but that would mean starting from scratch to build a following.

    Thanks, wihumphrey!

    So I'm lying on my recliner (shut up Noose) and reading all of these kind comments. First, thanks for that. Second, I appreciate anyone who was able to follow along with my stream of consciousness videos. That takes a certain type of fortitude. Third, I apologize for the numerous technical glitches that occurred which my extremely limited techy knowledge was unable to correct. Lastly, NH please don't put your phone down, you're too good at this, and Albinotrout, I have little doubt that you'll be just fine.

    https://www.youtube.com/user/EyesOnEars I have started adding channels under that main account. Subscribe to the main channel and all other EOE channels as well. i.e. EyeOnEars 1, EyesOnEars 2 etc as they are added This is totally new to me so like Fiz said, we are going to learn as we go.

    When IBM purchased Ustream, it was pretty clear where they were headed. You can hardly find an internet service that is not subscription based and IBM is following that model. Their focus is on the "big bucks" accounts (business/professional/corporate) and discontinue the free ad-supported accounts. It's a loss for the "little guy", for sure. There will be two plans: professional and enterprise. A professional plan costs $99 up to $999/month (100-5000 streaming hours depending on the plan you chose) Clearly, most of those with free accounts cannot afford and/or justify such a high subscription fee. Unfortunately, the options for an alternative to IBM/Ustream are very limited as far as I can tell. Facebook Live has grown by leaps and bounds, but it is not without its limitations. Some that come to mind are the lower video quality and time restrictions (I think there is a 4-hour limitation per stream) All streams would have to be generated through the EoE facebook page and viewed on FB. I am not aware of a way to embed those streams to a website as I write this. YouTube live is also very popular now. The video quality is top notch and can be embedded. However, unlike Ustream, each YouTube live stream has its own embed code, so keeping a website updated with the current live streams would be very time consuming and a lot of ongoing work. Livestream is subscription based and has never been an affordable option. Not good news for individuals or small sites..... but the days of anything for free on the interest are pretty much history.

    Wdw streaming August 2018???

    Parades ,fireworks,live shows and attractions are always popular. However, I have found that when it comes to mobile streaming, opportunity chooses you.You will come upon something, quite by accident and will say: "I gotta stream this." That's part of the fun. Let it happen, because it will. Oh yeah.....and shopping. A store walk-through is always popular at EOE.......I have no idea why

    Emma's heart

    Update - Emma walked on her own for the first time since transplant. This is from her father: After 26 days Emma is still in Intensive Care working hard every day to get better. This has been a slow process. As a parent, It was the best feeling in the world to see Emma come off life support on day 6 and watch her new heart take over. Our unfortunate news is Emma’s kidneys have acute damage from the transplant. She has been on dialysis every day which has been a huge bump in the road toward going home. ... This is my beautiful daughter walking by herself for the first time today. Teresa and I could not be more proud of Emma my ❤️ Bellatrix ❤️ Thanks to everyone who has helped Team Wittig. We could not do this without family and friends!! Capture 08.wmv

    No more Do Not Disturb Signs

    Hello all, Just to let you know, the Mrs. and I are heading back down to WDW this week. Staying at SSR, so depending on what kind of view we get, don't know if I will stream or not. I will be setting up a camera that will record the inside of the room while we are out, just to see what goes on when we are not there. Let's see if that brings me any attention. Maybe I should stream that?

    Forum Upgrade

    The forum upgrade is nearing completion and I have changed our DNS info so you will all start seeing the new site; everyone should be on the new site by the end of the weekend at the latest. Change can often be tough as we get used to one thing and then overnight things become unfamiliar, but based on the age of our previous forum this change is without question a good one. Explorer the forums, topics and make a post or two to get familiar with the new system . Be sure to check out the photo and video gallery, and the brand new features like the leaderboard and member map. Let me know if you have any errors or issues that need to be addressed; also let me know if you have any request for a feature. Thanks!

    Dang, so many changes that ales things difficult. My plans for December are to take the laptop and resort stream. I hopefully will be able to mobile stream as well. If the Facebook live stream works I will do it.

    As someone who wishes things wouldn't change (wish we were still on Ustream, on eyesonears.com), using YT for resort streams and FB for mobiles seems to be the answer for now.

    WDW "Inside Out"

    Hi, I came across an old series that some of you may enjoy. It was aired on the Disney Channel on Sunday evenings (I believe) between 1994-1997 and featured a behind the scenes tour of WDW. This YT playlist contains 27 episodes. There's a lot of 'fluff' but its a fun show. Hosts include Brianne Leary, JD Roth and George Foreman. These are not my uploads and I am not affiliated with the uploader (I didn't intend on spamming) :-)

    Before we bought into DVC, Belle and I rented points, twice from individuals and once from a service. We had good experiences from all. The only major thing you really need to have with these transactions is a contract. Don't even deal with people who say you don't need one. The contracts protect both you and the renter ( My info is , of course, correct because Fiz says so)

    Resort views have been on my mind...

    We totally agree NH. We love ALL views shared by the streamers and appreciate so much the time, effort, knowledge of streaming, and above all, your willingness to share. We watch the calendar, look forward to the emails of upcoming streams, and have our calendar marked with "where we're going" each month. (So excited that we're all going to the Boardwalk next month But, we also look forward to Ft. Wilderness as we love to walk there each time we are at WDW, and we are enjoying Saratoga Springs, as we just returned from there in November. (Love your location and thank you Mr. Hub and Scrappy!) And there is no such thing as "just trees" when you are up north knee deep in snow. The Florida sky, the sound the of boat whistles, hearing the carts drive by at Ft. Wilderness, the sound of the breeze blowing through the palm trees, the music from the Polynesian Resort when the cam is near one of the speakers. The SOUNDS of our Disney trips So, while we definitely love our Boardwalk View because it feels like home, and the Contemporary Resort view of Bay Lake or MK we also enjoy and appreciate, just as much ALL views, ALL streams. To all who stream and share their Disney vacations and views with us, thank you. NH, WiHumphrey, Mr.Hub and Scrappy recently. And Flounder, thank you so much for noting that it is meaningful to you if even one person is enjoying your stream, because it truly is appreciated. May the joy you give to all of us watching be returned to you tenfold. It's hard to put into words how VERY much it is appreciated. THANK YOU ALL

    2017 Donation Drive

    Thanks to everyone who donated and/or contributed in 2017; you truly make what we are doing here possible! This past year we upgraded out site software and the additional cost was offset by the generous donations of EOE members like you. In 2017 we had 31 donations (most of all time) with many of those made by repeat donators. Without your passion for sharing the magic; it would be impossible to do what we do; thank you! May 2018 be a magical year for each and every one of you!

    For Star Wars fans

    The Disney Blog on FB announced info on the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando next week. Something that caught my eye was "StarWars.com is live streaming over 30 hours of the event on their website (and probably on YouTube as well). The live stream will feature celebrity guests, interviews with creators as well as give access to various panels throughout the weekend." I did not see the dates but will check on that.

    Dining options at AKV

    Ate at Sanaa last year and absolutely loved it. We were on the Disney Dining Plan, and I cannot recall any item that was not available off the menu. We did pay extra for the Bread Service which was excellent! So tasty! The view of the animals adds excellent ambiance. I would highly recommend it. I will be dining there again.
