    A Disneyland future themed resort in Texas?

    This hoax re-surfaces regularly. Typically its started by some land speculator looking to boost the value of their property.

    Sea Raycers

    Never felt constrained when renting from any of the MK resorts. You have a lot of room in Seven Seas Lagoon and you simply take the water bridge into Bay Lake for even more to see.

    Questions about golf

    They are all good, challenging. I'd rank them Magnolia, Palm and LBV. Not sure how far out on the tee times. Single players are never allowed on a golf course, especially a resort course, as they take up a time slot and their pace of play is significantly different from the typical...

    Reams Rd. Entrance

    We don't consider the fireworks noise to be a problem. We hear the MK ones every night but its not obtrusive. Perhaps some of the closer homes would say differently. Stucco is prevalent around here for the very good reason that the homes are cinder block construction with a layer of stucco...

    Flight questions

    Doubtful. I don't think any airlines use those planes to fly between the continental US and Hawaii.

    Just wanted to mention that on our recent trip to Aulani we had dinner at Roy's one night. Its located basically across the street from Aulani (short walk) at the golf course. Bottom line, we were really impressed with the food and service there. Perhaps the best dinner meal of our whole trip...

    Questions for a One Time Only Trip

    Seven nights is good. Nine or ten is even better. Because of the long flight you won't actually get to Aulani until mid-afternoon. With the time difference (5 hours from TX) you will be pretty worn out that day and would probably want to spend the next day relaxing around the resort. So that...

    10 Day Trip Report - Aulani and Grand Wailea (Maui)

    Enjoying your report thus far. Didn't notice the dates you were there but its possible we were there at the same time. Your family picture in the first post looks familiar, and I'm sure I saw that back-pack but of course there are a lot of them out there. We were there 5/22 - 6/11.

    How was Memorial Day Weekend this year?

    Again, I don't think that weekend would cause you any suffering. I really don't think you'll have a huge difficulty booking the first two weeks of June at the 7-month mark.

    How was Memorial Day Weekend this year?

    We were there on Memorial Day. Our trip was a fairly long one that straddled the weeks on either side. I did not see a difference in crowd levels at all.

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    Thanks for these updates Jack! I've got a couple of questions/comments: I'm sure they can ask. How likely would it be for the Court to agree? Even though there was an agreement in principle, is seems possible that in working out the details the plaintiff found some of the proposed terms to be...

    Reams Rd. Entrance

    There are a lot of nearby shops and restaurants, with more opening all the time. Having said that, there aren't as many as you would find along 192. Nor is there as much traffic.

    Hard to believe it is June and the crowds at WDW are this light!

    I'd attribute it to the SWGE effect. Got to believe that a lot of potential visitors are waiting for that to open. There also might be an impact from Universal opening a new thrill ride this week. Perhaps that has drawn some visitors to that park.

    New Disney Ships: News, Rumors, Speculation.....and Names!

    Yes, that's it. The part that is embedded in the sea floor is typically emplaced on a sandy bottom, not the reef itself. A reef doesn't just cover the entire bottom, but is normally in "clumps" with space around them. I've actually done a dive in the GC harbor (beautiful visibility) and the...

    Reams Rd. Entrance

    Most of the homes on Reams, and the adjacent streets, are a bit newer that Celebration. My home in Summerlake is 5 years old. The drive to the MK is indeed closer than from Celebration. Not that its a great difference.

    News Round Up 2019

    We were fortunate to ride it in DL Paris a couple of years ago. Yes, it really is an awesome ride. The ride technology is unlike any others before.

    Reams Rd. Entrance

    Celebration is a bit pricy. The area off of Reams is not at all touristy. However, traffic has become a bit of an issue during shift change times. Not terrible, but definitely noticeable.

    New Disney Ships: News, Rumors, Speculation.....and Names!

    Interesting discussion about anchor damage. I wonder if the GC port authorities have considered putting in moorings?

    Narcoossee’s or Citricos? How do I decide which one to go to?

    They are both very good. I give the edge to Citrico. You really can't go wrong with either.

    "Skyliner" talk has died down quite a bit.....

    There is a huge thread devoted specifically to the Skyliner. Definitely hasn't slowed down.
