    EPCOT 2019 International Festival Of The Arts Discussion

    The DH and I are interested in some of the more adventurous food. I noticed that most of the vloggers have more everyday palates. Craig of DIS Unplugged, for example, was grossed out by the texture of the salmon terrine--and he took a huge bite out of it, when it looks like it's best savored in...

    EPCOT 2019 International Festival Of The Arts Discussion

    Great photos! Looking forward to it! Great to see Steve Blanchard still at it. We're going to try to catch Heidi Blickenstaff and Gavin Lee.

    EPCOT 2019 International Festival Of The Arts Discussion

    Thanks. Anyone see anything related to the original film art--production sketches, concept art, etc.?

    EPCOT 2019 International Festival Of The Arts Discussion

    One thing I was hoping for more than the food and collectibles was a nice exhibit like the one I hear they did on Mary Blair the first year. I don't see much of anything about that kind of thing so far. I'd really like to see some art connected with the creation of the classic films, and maybe...

    Best Western Lake Buena Vista

    You are very welcome. I understand that things go wrong sometimes. (Though my hotel room still isn't officially linked on the app.) But they have tried to help me out.

    Best Western Lake Buena Vista

    update: Well... Disney confirmed that the problem seems to be on their end. And in the process, they helped set up FP+ for my dates. I had to do it over the phone and couldn't make any changes online, only through the phone. Not awful, but not the promised experience. When the 30 day mark...

    EPCOT 2019 International Festival Of The Arts Discussion

    Glad they finally released the seminars and workshops. We planned to only go on a Thursday and Friday, so only one workshop day. But there's plenty going on otherwise. I wish they had a really good exhibit on a classic Disney artist like they did with Mary Blair. Tyrus Wong or Eyvind Earle would...

    Best Western Lake Buena Vista

    Well, right now, I'm NOT recommending this hotel. I've been trying to link my reservation to My Disney Experience for two weeks. Nothing. The hotel can't do anything, and despite Disney's best efforts so far, nothing. I'm due to make my first FP+ tomorrow morning. They said if I still have...

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    TP is predicting fairly low crowds the week we are there. The longer of our 2 EPCOT days is showing as a Level 1! Our half-day at EPCOT will be the busiest at a Level 4. But that day will definitely be about doing less popular attractions or ones which typically have shorter waits, along with...

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    The DH, who is not from LA, does not get my love of fried and sweet. His loss.

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    Newsies has got me thinking. I may get up and rope drop MK without the DH. He can meet me there later in the morning, in time for our FP+. We've also got down time scheduled for that day, which includes evening EMH. We'll leave the park around 4:00 for tea at GF, then back to our hotel to chill...

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    I like this idea! Thanks!

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    BTW my DH says I can plan our trip, as long as there's not a lot of waiting in line. To me, rope drop means waiting in line. Like, for an hour. So... since we'll be at EPCOT during IFOA, I imagine there's plenty to do between FP+ and the festival stuff. The other parks should be a bit lower in...

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    If I were younger and married to someone who likes Disney as much as I do, I imagine I'd be with you to an extent. But I find I'd also like to possibly put in a day where we just hang out at the resorts and/or Disney Springs to unwind. Just the one day to take it slow. Then back to the rides...

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    Right? I get that. With kids it must be kind of exciting to do it. But otherwise, cher, just go with the flow and laissez les bons temps roulez! Who dat!? BTW do you have beignets at WDW? Or do you just assume they're better in NOLA?

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    I'm with you! Have you ever done rope drop? I'm curious. I've never done it.

    ROPE DROP: YAY! OR NO WAY! ??

    We are NOT doing rope drop on our trip in early February. That's non-negotiable. We're an older couple, no kids or grandkids. Waking up before 7 a.m. on vacation? Then standing around in a crowd for another hour? Naw. I mean, we're going to have some FP+'s, right? Why on earth would we want to...

    Park calendars. Accurate?

    I do find it interesting to compare the different crowd predictions. Kenny The Pirate never recommends going to a park with evening EMH, recommending instead a different park on those days. Which has me rethinking our plans. That idea does make sense to me, frankly. But I don't know if anyone...
