  1. The stream will start May 29, 2019 at 11:20 p.m. EDT/8:20 p.m. PDT. If that's past your bedtime, you'll be able to watch the recording later. Link to the Disney Parks Blog post: #DisneyParksLIVE to Stream the Dedication Ceremony of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort on May 29 at 8:20 P.M. PDT
  2. I really miss Ustream. Streaming is just too complicated now.
  3. The permanent show will start sometime in 2020.
  4. Exactly. We always give a nice tip to the CM who delivers the groceries, but now we're going to take $6 off the tip.
  5. I've been waiting for this for years! Now I need to know exactly where the photo is taken so I can have a proper expression on my face. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/04/disney-photopass-services-13th-attraction-photo-opportunity-at-walt-disney-world-resort-materializes-at-the-haunted-mansion/?fbclid=IwAR1kT8EqxsEEmiylqhF3P1IS-pzXyuurZCVjfIV7jF7fk5iqdW-a1QQ9Xjc
  6. The only smoking area that bothered me was the one in Adventureland. The pathway isn't all that wide and the smoke was thick while walking past. I was really happy when it was removed. The problem with removing all smoking areas from the parks is that people will just light up anywhere when the need hits. Imagine being up by Big Thunder or the Haunted Mansion, having to trudge all the way out the front of the park, take a smoke break, then head back to wherever the rest of the family is. Many smokers won't do it. The Orlando Sentinel did a story about the Cinderella coaches. They rent for up to $300 per day! https://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/tourism/os-cfb-cover-disney-high-end-kids-20180325-story.html When you look at the size of the coaches and the Keenz wagons (which the company insists is a stroller, not a wagon), you can see why Disney cracked down.
  7. Disney now has lime Dole Whip at Storybook Treats in the Magic Kingdom and at Pineapple Lanai in the Polynesian. Yum! I'm not too crazy about the green cone, but I hope this flavor is still available during my next trip. It looks like other flavors are available at different spots in the Magic Kingdom -- raspberry, lemon, and mango. Some people like to "drink around World Showcase." I think I might have to "eat Dole Whips around MK!" And, yes, I'll be wearing my new Dole Whip bracelet from Alex & Ani! Here's an article about it at Disney Food Blog: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2019/03/16/review-new-heart-of-te-fiti-lime-dole-whip-cone-at-pineapple-lanai-in-disneys-polynesian-village-resort/
  8. A film school grad spent four years making a movie about Walt Disney's frozen head. Parts of the movie were filmed on Disney property without Disney's knowledge or consent. The trailer is funny and can be seen here: https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2019/03/11/walts-frozen-head-filmed-secretly-on-disney-property-premieres-online-march-14 The film will premiere tonight, March 14, at 8:30 p.m. ET on YouTube. I think this is the correct link to view the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cj0qwTmn0Ic
  9. I wouldn't go anywhere near Hollywood Studios on opening day. We have a trip planned for Christmas (that's if we can get airfare at less than $800/ticket, which is what we're seeing now), and I really hope that Rise of the Resistance opens well before we go. Trying to get into the land will be insane if RotR opens right before Christmas. It's interesting that Disneyland will be requiring reservations to get into Galaxy's Edge (in addition to a park ticket) from May 31 to June 23. There's more info at Disney Parks Blog: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/03/star-wars-galaxys-edge-to-open-may-31-at-disneyland-resort-august-29-at-disneys-hollywood-studios/
  10. I decided to not take a chance waiting until my next trip. Love this bracelet!
  11. Alex and Ani has finally come out with a Dole Whip bracelet! I've been waiting for this one for a really long time. It isn't being sold on the Shop Disney site, at least not yet. Should I buy it from a Disney shoppers website or hope it's still available when we go for Christmas? There are also Mickey bar and Minnie donut bracelets, which are adorable.
  12. Hope you had a great birthday, Flounder!
  13. Sure, PhotoPass photographers aren't being replaced...right now. The whole reason for the test is to see if it works and if there are any complaints from guests. If people don't complain, the automated system will be expanded.
  14. I never not bring my camera! It goes with me everywhere on property. You just never know when the shot of a lifetime will pop up. When I was a about 16, my parents, brother, and I were walking between the castle and the carousel. I looked up and saw Cinderella, Prince Charming, and Fairy Godmother waving at everyone from the balcony (restaurant level) on the back of the castle. Back then, my mom was the person who carried the camera. I turned to get it from her, but with a crestfallen face, she told me she'd left it in the room. For many years, every time we went back, I hoped to see those characters together in the same place, but it didn't happen. I learned two lessons: 1) be the person responsible for the camera and 2) ALWAYS carry a camera.
