I made special trips to World Showcase for the cider with marshmallow. I'd love to see a dessert fireworks and a character meal, but this late in the game, I'm doubtful, but hopeful.
Thanks so much for the help. Subscribing for sure!

Can guests skate, or are there just demonstrations?
If guests can skate, can I bring my own skates to the park to use?

Jessica – In addition to watching Oaken’s very talented cousins show off their ice-skating skills, our Guests are going to be able to skate on the frozen pond at Wandering Oaken’s Frozen Funland, too! For those who wish to participate, skating equipment will be available for rent at the location for a nominal charge.

I am trying to get a direct answer to this and I will post if I do.
please let me know if you find out. I very much want to skate, but not if I have to use rentals. I have customs for a reason lol

We'll probably do the fireworks on our first night, but then do something else the second night...an extra TSM ride would be awesome. I just need to know what time to get into line.
You can get in line for TSMM up to 8:30pm then they close the line. They do this to give people a chance to ride and exit by 9:40pm
Yes, they will move it to earlier closing when fireworks change time

Just found out that guests can bring their own skates and they can skate. There will be more detailed information on this in the coming days/weeks.

We are the same way - there is no chance my daughter would skate if she had to use rentals for any number of reasons - which you know too well!!

My son and I have our hockey skates which we may not bring because I don't think my son would want to skate with those yucky princesses (he's 9). I, however, would probably enjoy skating with yucky princesses, much to my daughter's embarrassment.

Will you be there the week of August 20-25? If so, maybe we'll see you on the ice!

We got the F! dining package and are going the last week of August. So that means F! is @ 9:15 and then the fireworks are still @ 9:45? Hopefully that moves out 15 min too. Subbing to the thread to keep an eye on this. Thanks!!

Great news! I will be there August 23. Also July 5th! Which is why I feel so time crunched for information. Where did you hear guests can bring skates if you don't mind me asking?

-- nevermind, just saw a comment response on parks blog, C (; I'm Jessica, I'm sure you've seen me asking the same questions! WHAT WONDERFUL NEWS! The skates are going in the bag! :D :D :D

We are going to be there July 4-8 and excited to check out the winter funland and fireworks. Have FPs for the 7th so this should work out nicely.

The skates are coming with us too!

This is all very exciting. Too bad we are flying, there is no way I can imagine packing ice skates for a quick skate...my luggage would be overweight and I need my cute outfits darn it! LOL
