Just got back and learned some interesting things on my trip

I learned on the airplane down that you can buy tickets to the Main Street Electrical Parade. It's supposed to be a lot of fun and only about $50 to do.

I learned in Epcot that you can buy a half day ticket for half the price. Straight from a CM's mouth that worked a sales cart to a family asking about it. he was pretty positive that you could buy them at the ticket booth with no problems.

Actually true stuff I learned----

I also learned that with the new keys, you don't need to take them out of your wallet to open the door, just touch the whole thing to it and you are in.

The best thing I found out was an Echo spot in Epcot. I haven't seen anything about it here, that I remember, and Google searched but found nothing about it anywhere.

If you enter through the front and stand about 5 feet on the line in the pavement in front of where you get pictures taken in front of the ball. We were one of the few one's left in the park at the end of the night and were taking pictures when I stood in a that spot and everything I said echoed just enough. Not loud or anything but strangely. My friend tried and it happened for her too as it happened for the other two women that were there taking pictures also. It's probably right about a foot in front of where the tripod usually is for the photographer....

has anyone ever noticed that ?

YOur post made me laugh!

However-you really don't need to take out the new keys to get in your room. At least it worked in a plastic laynard pouch-not sure about a thick wallet.

My husband had a great time getting into our room with out taking his key out of his wallet. He was so excited to show me the first time he did it!

Hope you took advantage of the new info and purchased your parade tickets on the plane. That's a huge savings!

There's an echo spot in the main building in the China pavilion at Epcot-- The building designed to look like a temple. You can stand directly under the place where the ceiling comes to a point and there's an echo effect there when you speak.

Didn't they used to have reduced price evening only admission to Epcot in order to encourage dining?

That one was serious. It worked in both mine and my friends wallet. Made it much easier with full hands and tired fingers.

Yes, that is actually true. I'm guess the CM was referring to the FL Resident Epcot after 4 pass and the guests didn't convey to the OP correctly.

So you have to be a Florida resident to get the 1/2 price ticket?

There is not 1/2 price tickets. There is an after 4pm season pass to Epcot for Florida residents. The first two things about tickets are things the OP heard that are not true.
