Returning from Iraq

thanks for all the info everyone. I will be traveling for the next two weeks and I won't have easy internet access for most of my trip. If you have any last advice or tips please post them.

thank you

Radio Disney used to have a radio studio in DHS from which they did a four-hour broadcast daily. We stopped by during off-air hours and they gave us a nice tour, explained the technology, and sent us off with some trinkets.

I didn't check when we were there in December - is the RD station still in existence? I know BB Good left the station last year.

Found a description on the main site: http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/guides/mgm/st-radio.htm ,
but I think it's out of date.

The best American Idol Experience show to go to is the Finale at 7! You get to see all the winners from the shows throughout the day and then you get to vote on who should get the golden ticket to audition at the real American Idol.

For the Backlot Tour, if you don't want to stand around and watch the first part (the volunteers do a skit), just keep walking past everyone and proceed into the building..if you move fast enough, you can catch the tram that's already boarding! If you miss it, that's alright..you now have time to look around at all the props being displayed in the building!

DHS best Tips!

1. The best time to do ToT and /or RNRC is during the parade time or Fantasmic!
2. Do TSM first! Use the single rider line if possible!

This may have been mentioned already since this is an old thread, but I found the best counter service at HS was Fairfax Fare. They serve ribs, brisket, that sort of thing. Everything we had was delicious! In a park full of mediocre CS dining (and sometimes mediocre TS from what I've read, although we got lucky at Mama Melrose's), Fairfax Fare was a nice surprise.

HOWEVER - finding a seat can be especially difficult since it shares a seating area, plus it's near the opening to Fantasmic! So if you go near the time when they start letting people into Fantasmic! be prepared to fight for a seat *L*

I do not see cobb salad on the Starring Rolls menu. Maybe someone who recently attended DHS can confirm.

A must-have snack snack for me is an ice cold chocolate chip muffin from the Writer's Stop! We must sit down on the couch there, watch part of a Disney movie, and relax for a hot minute every trip!

could someone tell me if Mike and Sulley still have this meet and greet.
I know some of the information on the first 3 pages are outdated--like the power rangers were given back to the original owners and will not appear in disney world.

As of March 22, they were still there. Hard to find but worth it because there was NO wait whatsoever. The only thing is they can't sign autographs, but Sulley does give great hugs! He's like a great big throw rug
