    Hurricane Matthew Closes WDW - Reopens Saturday, October 8th

    Thank you for sharing this. We inquired about moving our trip yesterday. United airlines was willing to do so with no fees. DVC said we would lose our points as they had no "okay" to make exception as the higher-ups did not see the case for the WDW area, only Vero Beach. I will call back now...

    Grand California Villas room assistance please

    Hi! We are staying for one night at GCVs, one bedroom. I would love a room that allows us the option of spending time relaxing and enjoying in the room. Maybe even watch WoC from the room? I am not familiar with what the various one bedroom locations / views / options are and was hoping for...

    Correct. It has to be the Disney Chase Visa Credit card. Also, it was recently announced that Darth Vader will soon be replaced by Kylo Ren.

    Help me with my quest for non-fried food!

    Rancho del Zocalo has a great rotisserie chicken platter with all the fixings, along with rice and beans. They also have salads. The fruit cart on Main Street is a great option. In Adventureland there's a kiosk / shop where you can get fresh fruit that is delicious. And I second Pizza...

    Current info on Jedi Training sign-ups

    You do not need to show your tickets when signing up. The kids that want to participate, however, DO need to be there when signing up. So you could get fps, while DH and kids go sign up. :)

    D23 Expo 2015 - Who's in? Roll call!

    Okay, you hit on the key that I was wondering about in my question. There is no separate line outside for Legends. So the doors open for the Gold and Silver members and if they want to go to the Legends ceremony, off they go to Hall E. Doors open for General admission and those wanting to see...

    D23 Expo 2015 - Who's in? Roll call!

    Thanks for replying. I understand and agree with what you have said, but there are only 7,000 seats. Someone goes in first. Is your understanding that if you are in Hall E prior to 7am, you WILL be in the Legends Awards ceremony? Some group has to go in first as there is a limited number...

    D23 Expo 2015 - Who's in? Roll call!

    This overnight lineup business is complicating things. LOL Grrr Curious if others understand things the way I do. Goal: To get in to the Legends Ceremony, Friday, 10am, Hall D23. My read on things is that the order of entry for the Hall D23 will be as follows: 1st in: Anyone who is there...

    Rides to avoid while pregnant?

    Disney won't tell you that you CAN'T ride, but there are pregnancy advisories. I would avoid Star Tours (shaking, jolts), the Mountains, California Screaming , and Tower of Terror. Those are the ones that come to mind right away. - Dreams

    I just can't see paying almost double to stay on site…WDW yes…DL no

    You really can't even put Hojo's and the GCH in the same sentence if you are making honest comparisons. You say that to you it's a place to sleep. That's the key, in my opinion. To many, a hotel is much more than that. When I go on vacation, a hotel is not just a place to sleep. It is part of my...
