TheDisneyBlog.com - 6 hours 15 min ago

When I visit any of the four Walt Disney World theme parks these days, I’m often surprised to see guests buying tickets at the walk-up window mid-day then heading into the parks. Don’t they realize that by not buying tickets ahead of time, they’re missing out on one of the...

Eclipse

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-08-21 15:15
When your house is 12 miles north of the Zone of Totality, it's really hard to not want to head south and get in the Zone. But the media here in Portland have been in zombie apocalypse mode for weeks and predicting total gridlock and worse all weekend as the 2 million people in Portland all try to get the 20 miles or so further south to be in the Zone. So resigned myself to only a 99.7% experience.

Got up this morning and checked the traffic apps. No serious congestion on the back roads! DW and I hopped in the car and are now sitting at a school in St. Paul, Oregon, inside the Zone of Totality. Just barely, but we'll get about 45 seconds of total eclipse.

Only 2 hours to go!

New Soarin' Movie

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-08-21 14:21
I apologize if this has been discussed before - I apparently am not too proficient with the search function.

Soarin' is one of my favorite rides and this summer, I was able to see it with the new movie. It is still one of my favorite rides, but while the new movie is breathtaking and fun, I was a little disappointed.

Perhaps I did not notice it as much with the Soarin' over California version, but it seems to me that the new movie has a number of structures with vertical lines that really become distorted as you 'fly' towards them. For example, you can see a big curve in the Eiffel Tower. It seems to be worse the lower you are (middle and bottom rows).

My engineering background is sufficient enough to explain why this happens - it is unavoidable to a large degree. However, I just didn't seem to notice this as much with the California version and my only explanation is that the new 'World' version has more vertical structures.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else noticed. I still love the ride, but this is a little distracting for me. Perhaps if you are on the top row (I did not end up there on any of the times we road it last trip), it is not as noticeable.

A fairly COMPLICATED FastPass question

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-08-21 05:18
My sister just asked me a FastPass question I could not answer.

Can anyone answer this with certainty:

She is staying at Poly for six days. She plans on going to Universal on Day 3 - so she only bought a 5day Disney ticket (with plans to do Disney on Days 1,2,4,5 and 6.)

She found out that MK now has extra magic hours until midnight on Day 3 - which means she could go to Universal all day and still go to MK that night - but that would require she add a day to her Disney ticket. Based on her level of fatigue, she does not want to decide if she will go to the MK until she returns to the Poly from Universal that evening. If she decides she wants to go, she will go to a MK ticket window to add a day.

Here is the question: 60 days ahead, Can she reserve Fastpasses for all six days, even though she only (currently) has a 5day ticket, but a 6day hotel stay? She wants to reserve fastpasses for Day 3 in case she decides to go on Day 3. But will the system then not let her reserve fastpasses for Day 6?

Another way to ask this is: To get fastpasses, does the system focus only on the length of the hotel stay or the number of days on the ticket? For example, if I stay at the Contemporay for ten days, but I only have a park ticket for one day, the system knows both facts, but it does not know which of the ten days I plan to use the ticket. Can I book fastpasses for Day 1 only? What if I want to wait until I arrive to decide if I will use my ticket on Day 2 or Day 8? Will I be able to reserve Fastpasses on each of those days since they fall into my window for my length of stay at my hotel?

A new ride, not already represented.

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-08-20 20:56
So, if you could build a new ride for a movie or character, not already represented by another ride, what would it be? What kind of attraction would you want. (If the movie or character is represented in a show or meet n'greet, those dont count).

So Id want Moana. I picture a ride, kinda like Splash Mountain. Perhaps the uplift before the drop could be escaping and giving the stone to the volcano god. Create some Navi River type effect inside the mountain. Could be really cool. Put the Crab inside. Outside could be a giant, green mountain.

2018 Dining Plan Questions?

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-08-20 15:17
Hi everyone. A couple of questions regarding the new inclusion of alcoholic beverages in the 2018 plan. On the regular dining plan, is there an alcoholic beverage option at the quick service and table service credits?(so 2 per day)? Also, if at a meal you choose not to have an alcoholic beverage, can you save for another meal? Thanks!!! Also, a lot of quick service in MK does not offer alcohol! How is that handled?
