Once you get in the gate at WDW...what are you able to do without paying? or does everything cost past the gate admission?

I beleive that almost all the shows and rides are included. Food and drink are additional fees.

EVERYTHING...shows, rides and all entertainment are included!! Obviously, you have to pay for food, drinks and shopping.

When we went in 2001 the only things we paid for besides food, drink, and shopping was in Animal Kingdom we had to pay for face painting and they had a couple other booths in that area that you paid for, I can't remember what they were. I don't know if that's changed or not.

I heard that starting this Fall they are going to charge you for air....something like 50 cents every time you inhale.

OH NO! I didnt figure that into my budget. Can I bring my own canned air? Will they allow me to bring that into the park?

I'm willing to sell some partially used air - cheap :)

Oops, sorry, I can't post offers to sell things, can I?

Hah--you guys are funny!

I live in Florida--so I'm willing to time share my air--but you can only use it when I've vacated the state AND you have to use your DVC points ;)


OK--

Arcades in Tomorrowland cost $$$ (but in Future world at EPCOT and past the gift shop inside Mission Space Exit area and Test track exit area, they have some free gaming areas--most though are group games and you'll have to wait in a line if it is busy). The mini-boats (do they still work?) and shooting arcade in MK cost $$$.

You have to pay to ride the Skyway from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland too (the return trip is free),

Seriously.... there are some carnival type games in the Dinosaur area of AK that are "pay to play". It really ate into our budget on our first trip... be prepared................P

You do have to pay for the tours, but those have to be booked in advance (I think), and they probably charge your cc when you book.

I hope this was a joke, but I didn't see a :-). There is no more skyway at WDW. Been gone for several years now. And even when it was there, it didn't cost extra.

I read it as a joke since the fare was only for one way... :)

I'd definitely bring my own...the air in the refillable containers Disney sells is very...


...muggy :teeth:

By inside the gate of WDW do you mean just the resort property or did you actually mean inside the Magic Kigdom or one of the parks?

Sorry, Disney doesn't let you bring your own air into the parks anymore. Apparently some lower quality Universal Studios air was being brought in...overall park cleanliness suffered and pixie dust stopped floating correctly. This is the main reason they introduced the security checks at the gates - to prevent unapproved air from being brought in.

OKW Lover, are you sure the Skyway is gone?!? I just rode it a couple weeks ago.

Wouldn't it be a pity if Disney started to charge for toilets like a number of European stores and train stations. Then my budget would really be in trouble, and pity all the pregnant moms!

wdwoldtimer-I think you must be confusing the Skyway with something else. It's been closed for years and years....

If you're joking I just don't get it....explain?

He was joking...and it was funny. :)

Kind of like how the Tobin bridge in Boston (or most major toll bridges in large cities) charge you to get in the city, but not to leave.

N.E.D.

I wasn't confused until they said they just rode it a few weeks ago...I got it up until that point....

Hmm...no, I'm pretty sure it was the Skyway I rode not long ago. I distinctly remember looking down at the 20k Leagues subs circling lazily around the Lagoon and realizing for the first time that they don't actually go underwater.

would that be the tomorrowland transit authority? goes through space mountain, above buzz lightyear, that sort of thing?

who knows - i haven't been to WDW in more than a year!

had you just gotten off of iasw... ? i beleive that is one of the hazards, gazing longingly at the subs dreaming of trying to drown oneself to get rid of the constant singing in one's head.

the sky way was running last Jan as it was a short cut that ran right to the Ak "Beastly Kingdom" boats.::yes::

actually located inside the gate there is a big vaccum that just sucks up every red cent you have on you as you pass under so you don't even have to take out your wallet, the money is gone!:)

I'm still so confused....the skyway was the chairlift style ride that hasn't existed since (I believe, it was somewhere around here if not exactly) 1996, shortly after a worker fell to his death while sweeping the platform. It was scheduled to close anyway. Could it have been dumbo? That might have lifted you enough to see in 20,000 leagues. Otherwise I have no idea, since the lines (the wires, the track they run on) for the lifts haven't been there in years. I think we may just be calling different things the Skyway...The one I'm referring to departed from Tomorrowland next to Space Mtn and arrived in Fantasyland beside IASW (or vice versa). That one is very much closed.

A couple of weeks ago! You mean a couple of decades ago - right?:teeth: :p ;)

Ok, maybe it wasn't a couple weeks ago...but I definitely rode the Skyway this past June. This is so strange. The Skyway is the thing with the gondolas suspended by wire that goes between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. The entrance in Tomorrowland is sort of between The Carousel of Progress and RCA's Space Mountain ride....across from the People Mover.

Yeah - okay - you must have also ridden on the - what's that Eastern Airline ride called? Don't you just love to fly w/Eastern Airline?:crazy:

If You Had Wings, you mean....heck yeah I rode it! You don't even need a ticket for that!

Now I'm confused. I'm sure that's called Delta Dream Flight. I always ride it right after I take the Skyway from Fantasyland. Don't you just love that 3D movie they have in Fantasyland now?

Wait a minute..."If You Had Wings"...you mean that's the name of the movie?...heck, I thought that it was called "Flight Into Imagination".

wdwoldtimer

Nope...if you're referring to the attraction across from Mission to Mars and next to Monsanto's Circle Vision 3D theater, that would be If You Had Wings. That is...unless you have inside information that Delta is trying to take over Eastern's spot?!?

What 3D movie in Fantasyland? I can't believe I missed that! I saw Peter Pan's Flight, it's a small world, Dumbo, Snow White's Adventures, The Mickey Mouse Revue, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, 20K Leagues, the Teacups and the Carousel....no movie though. Please don't tell me one of these was recently closed.

WDWOLDTIMER - Me thinks you need to pick up the rotary dial phone and book a flight (w/Eastern Airlines no less) to WDW and see what changes have been made since your real last visit - which was in 1977. :p
