    I sense a disturbance in the force.....

    I agree that they are trying to thin the herd while still maintaining profits. While I was upset by the AP price hike, I honestly wouldn't mind if they doubled the price if it would significantly reduce the crowds. The single biggest thing that has really cut down my enjoyment of the parks...

    Just popping in. As I've said before, we are non-planners so I haven't really sat down to look at everything in this thread. We will probably sign up for the scavenger hunt. We want to do the pre-party thing at Nomad. I don't even know what else is happening. We're just finishing up our trip to...

    We will be driving. We are driving down and staying offsite, as we typically do, so we will drive to AK for the party.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    I'll ask again, is it possible that there is malware that ONLY affects this one website? I'm not a tech guy so I don't know how that stuff works. It just seems really odd to me. Plus it only happens on my brand new iMac and those are typically pretty immune to viruses and malware and such.

    A good friend and former travel agent was in Jamaica once and asked for skim milk. The waiter had a confused look on his face and went back into the kitchen. He came back and said they only had cow's milk and goat's milk, no skim milk. We have no idea what he thought a skim was.

    LOL. We take a different approach to the auction. We know we don't need that stuff so instead of buying a bunch of the items, we donate a bunch of the items. We figure the money they raise from selling everything we donate is one way we help support GKTW. And I love watching to see how much the...

    I can honestly say that Trader Sam's is the only place at Disney where we consistently find ourselves talking to strangers and all having a good time together. We're not typically the type to strike up a conversation with others but it just seems like the thing to do there.

    I realize the event is a fundraiser and I'm all in favor of that. Thanks entirely to the DIS, we have become volunteers at GKTW Village and have donated quite a bit to them as well both directly and through events such as this one. If I just wanted to support GKTW, however, I'd write a check...

    I certainly hope all of the events will have enough capacity to not get sold out just to Patreon members.

    They probably had to keep things onsite so Twistee Treat wasn't an option.

    I saw that. The problem for us is only I will have an AP. DW and DD will not. I don't think they'll care but if they really do and we all want to go, I'd have to upgrade their passes.

    Where has Charles been ?

    I do miss them being the ones doing the dining reviews. To me, for a dining review to be of value, the reviewers need to be people I relate to, people who at least generally share my tastes, interests, and budget. I totally get that Steve has simple tastes and I think that's a good voice to have...

    Our first trip was in 1978. We got our park tickets in advance. We got our tickets for SeaWorld in advance. We reserved Hoop De Doo and the Polynesian Luau in advance. It was all done through our travel agent. That was pretty much all the planning one could do at the time. I don't think we had...

    Sadly, "downtime in the parks" is no longer a thing. It simply doesn't exist anymore. The crowd level during the "slow" days today is similar to what the crowd level used to be on the busy days years ago. And the busy days are now over the top insanely busy. I think this is the single biggest...

    You bet I did. I was a Disney nerd back then too. I watched every TV show and studied every brochure and guide we got from our travel agent and anything else I could get my hands on. I knew that park (there was only one at the time) inside and out before we stepped off the plane in Orlando.

    Where has Charles been ?

    Exactly. I haven’t listened to those shows but my wife is lactose intolerant. Pretty much everything in restaurants has dairy from the steak (butter) to the fried chicken (buttermilk) to the vegetables (butter) to dessert contains dairy. She just takes plenty of lactase pills and she’s generally...

    I agree completely. So many people show up at WDW as if they were showing up at their local amusement park. They do no research and simply don't understand how massive and how crowded WDW is. Then they're disappointed with the experience. We go knowing full well what we're doing and what our...

    That's exactly my point though. You DON'T have to plan your entire trip in advance. We go to WDW every year at least once and sometimes twice, sometimes for 2 weeks at a time. We make NO ADRs. We make very few if any FPs in advance. And we have a great time. The whole "you have to have a...

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    Wouldn't that likely affect other websites? Could there be malware that ONLY affects the DIS? That seems odd.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    There certainly doesn't seem to be. Perhaps we should all start emailing them. Podcast@disunplugged.com. Maybe that will get their attention. I was thinking of doing that.
