  1. Attendance is down and rather than admit they raised ticket prices too much, they're trying a less expensive, limited-hours ticket.
  2. I've been so busy that today is the first time I've had a chance to visit here in a really long time. Thanks for the birthday wishes! I had a great day on Cape Cod with my hubby and kids.
  3. If you have a AAA membership, it also offers discounts on tickets to Disney World and other theme parks across the country.
  4. According to the post on Facebook, it looks like it'll be on channel three.
  5. The Disney Parks Blog will once again stream the July 4 fireworks, starting at 9:10 p.m. ET. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/
  6. 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
  7. I really miss Ustream. Streaming is just too complicated now.
  8. The permanent show will start sometime in 2020.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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/
  13. 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
  14. 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/
  15. I decided to not take a chance waiting until my next trip. Love this bracelet!
