Last-minute and Low-key March 14-19 Trip Part 3

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-03-26 20:45
Parks and Crowds: It was CROWDED! I’ve been in March before, but the crowds have never been like this. There were lots of teen/college spring breakers, some cheer/dance groups, some band groups, lots of international visitors, young families—you name it, they were there! Thankfully, I don’t recall it ever taking us that long to get through security, even when there were crowds, but I also don’t bring a bag into the parks anymore.

It was so crowded that wait times for the big rides were sometimes three hours or longer. This seemed to have a negative impact on FP+ wait times, as well. When the stand-by entrance to Space Mt. was 180 minutes, we waited 25 minutes with a FP!

Rides and attractions that I have rarely or EVER seen waits for had them this trip—People Mover, Carousel of Progress, JIYI, the Disney World RR; rides that usually have short waits sometimes approached an hour—Spaceship Earth, Small World, Living with the Land.

We can usually deal with the huge throngs of people well because we know the parks inside and out. Since it was just the two of us, it was easy to zip around and stay flexible with our plans. It does get tiresome being around so many people after a few days, though. I also noticed this trip that there was A LOT more drinking going on at EC than I’ve ever noticed before. It seemed like everyone we passed had a drink in his or her hands!:marg::beer:

The morning that we arrived at EC for EMH was crazy! After we went through security, the line to get into the park was wrapped all the way around the ticket booths. People were cutting in line right and left, mostly because they didn’t know where the end of the line was, and it was being fed into from so many different directions. It seemed extremely disorganized, and they didn’t have enough Magic Band scanners open for the number of people in line.:confused:

Between early mornings, late nights, and FP+, we saw and did pretty much everything we wanted. We didn’t get to ride RnRC or TSM more than one time like usual, but at least we got on them both! I will again sing the praises of the single rider line at EE because we were able to ride that multiple times with short waits.

I must say that we encountered incredibly rude people who talked loudly during almost all of the theater shows/movies we went to on this trip. Come on people—you’re not at home and other people are trying to immerse themselves in the experience which is difficult to do when you’re yammering throughout the whole show!:mad:

Side story #2: We were in the single rider line on EE one day, and there were two teenage girls in front of us and as we are wont to do when standing close to others for a while, I had been listening to their conversation. One of the girls was obviously very nervous to ride and kept saying things like, “I’m going to hold your hand the whole time!” which I thought was odd since they were definitely going to be split up.
As they got to the front of the line, the one girl was given the signal to get in the queue for one of the back cars as a single rider. When the CM turned her back, the scared friend darted into the ride queue right behind her friend.

As soon as the CM walked over to me to put me in the queue, I told her that the one girl had not gone where directed. I am a rule follower, so I hate when people think that the rules do not apply to them or try to cheat the system. I didn’t get to see what happened, but my DH told me that the CM pulled the girl out of the queue and she ended up not riding. Sorry, not sorry. You should have waited in the stand-by line like all the other people!

I loved all the new offerings we experienced on this trip, namely the Rivers of Light show at AK; the Star Wars fireworks show at DHS; and The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History. All were delightful, especially the Muppets!

Side Story #3--It never fails that when we are at WDW, we run into someone we know from home. This time, we were in the Living Seas when I heard someone yell our last name. It turned out to be one of our old neighbors who have since moved to Iowa. We had fun visiting with them and went on our separate ways. Until we ran into them at Be Our Guest another day. And then AGAIN before the Lion King show at AK another day. What are the odds?? It truly is a small world!

Side Story #4—During our trip last June, we went to the Hoop Dee Doo, and one of the young men in the show “Jim” was, shall we just say, quite memorable. We got to see him perform again that trip as he is also a member of the Voices of Liberty. The two teenage girls in our group (okay, and me) were quite taken with “Jim” and his lovely voice (and looks).

Now American Adventure is one of my absolute favorite attractions, and I love to hear the Voices of Liberty sing, so, of course, we headed there this trip. Sadly, I knew right away that “Jim” was not with the Voices of Liberty today, but we still very much enjoyed the singing.

Because I really love AA and we had no child complaining about going again, we went back for another show on our last day at EC. Guess who was singing today? That’s right, “Jim.” :cloud9: I told my daughter that if we saw him again, I would ask him what his real name is because we just know him as “Jim” from the Hoop Dee Doo. In addition to the great video we got of him serenading the little girl sitting next to me, I was able to talk to him after the show, and the great mystery was finally revealed—his name is Jordan.:D

I do wish they would update the final movie clip of AA; sorry, Lance, but you need to go! I can't imagine that with today's software/editing capabilities that this would be very difficult?

Final Thoughts: The MCO airport was an absolute zoo :bang: when we flew out on Sunday. The security lines were the longest I’ve ever seen, and by the time we got through, it was almost time to begin boarding our flight! It didn’t help that the family in front of us was apparently completely clueless as to what is acceptable to bring through the line—two full water bottles, full-size bottles of baby lotion, shampoo were all confiscated from them.

All in all, it was a fantastic trip. My DH and I enjoyed the time together, and despite the crowds and un-Florida-like weather, we made the most of it. I’m so thankful that we get to visit WDW. Sorry for the randomness of my report, but thanks for reading. :mickey:

Last-minute and Low-key Trip March 14-19 Part 2

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-03-26 20:20
Weather: It was COLD! There were a couple of mornings that we could see our breath. Luckily, I had watched the weather forecast carefully and packed accordingly; however, at the last minute, I did decide to bring my winter coat along with me, and I am so glad that I did. It wasn’t until the last day we were there that I left it in the room. It was warmer at home in Nebraska than it was in Florida during our trip, so we didn’t get that added vacation bonus of being able to gloat about how hot it was in Florida. I do have to say, though, it was kind of nice not to be sweaty the whole time we were there. I even wore make-up this whole trip because I knew it would stay on all day. :D

Accommodations: We arrived at the resort right around 3p, but we were told that our room wouldn’t be ready until as late as 5p. I thought a check-in time of 3p meant rooms had to be ready by then, but apparently not :confused:. We stowed our carry-ons and went straight to EC. We didn’t get back to the resort until just before midnight, and all of our luggage and carry-ons had been delivered to our room.

We were assigned the Rock Inn section room 3635 which was a bit of a trek from the bus stop, but it was quiet and met our needs for this trip (basically a place to sleep and shower). I would not want to put more than two adults in those tiny rooms for any length of time, though, and be forewarned that the beds are just full-sized.

The food court seemed adequate as far as seating and menu choices, although we didn’t ever stay to eat there, and we didn’t get a refillable mug on this trip.

We only went to the pool one afternoon on this trip; I needed the naps more than the pool time! The quiet pool was closed the day we did make it to the pool, so we had to go to the main one. It was St. Patrick’s Day, so there were games and (loud) music to complement the holiday. I found the lounge chairs at the pool to be extremely uncomfortable, so the nap I was looking forward to didn’t happen.:(

We didn’t have much extended interaction with any CMs at the resort, but everyone seemed pleasant enough.

A Value Resort would not be my first choice for any future trips, but I’m glad that we could experience one of the All-Stars. I only have a couple other resorts to check off my list!

Transportation: Magical Express was great, as usual. We used buses our entire stay except for the one day that we took the monorail from EC to the MK. It was the typical assortment of surprisingly short rides/waits balanced with the one or two bus rides from hell.

I do like that there is only one bus stop for the whole resort with visible queues that ensure fairness and order when getting on the buses. In the mornings and evenings, we did not have to stop at any of the other All-Star Resorts, but if we rode mid-afternoon or early evening, it would stop at the other AS Resorts. Because of their layout and proximity to each other, this really did not add on much extra travel time, and the ASMu is the second stop.

They’ve created a perfect storm at DHS as far as a mass exodus of EVERYONE from the park at the same exact time. The park closed at 9p, 8:30p Fantasmic let out, and the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular ended. The bus stops were CHAOS!! The line for each of the three All-Star Resorts extended well past the roped-off queues, making it very difficult to A) walk through the crowds as they spilled over into the sidewalks and B) know if we were even in the right line! There were no CMs to be found in the middle of this craziness, either.

Side Story #1--We finally got in the right line, and then we realized some people around us were trying to assist a young girl (maybe 6 or 7) who had gotten separated from her parents. A very smart man put the girl on his shoulders so she could scan the crowd, and it wasn’t long before we all saw a desperate hand waving back at her. Mother and daughter were reunited quickly, thank goodness!

Food: I brought a loaf of banana bread from home which is what we ate for breakfast most mornings, and we only grabbed one late-night snack at ASMu during our visit. Otherwise, we had a nice variety of meals around the parks and one impromptu visit to Disney Springs. Here’s an overview (in no particular order).

--Spice Road Table; this is probably one of the only restaurants you can still walk up to without a reservation and be seated almost immediately. Our waiter was annoying, but the food was good (calamari plate and hummus sampler).

--Since the Flower and Garden Festival was in full swing, the food and drink kiosks were abundant. We shared a hard cider flight and a couple of samples from the Canada food kiosk (scallops were delish!!) one afternoon. In case anyone is appalled by our lack of nutritional choices on this trip, both of these samples came with green beans that we also ate. :thumbsup:

--La Cantina de San Angel; we both enjoyed our lunch of nachos and margaritas (despite a rather loud, large bachelor party beside us).

--Columbia Harbour House; I swear the family on the other side of our ordering stand took almost 10 minutes just to place their order :mad:!! I had fish and chicken, and DH had the shrimp mac and cheese.

--Friar’s Nook; I had the plain mac and cheese and DH had the pot roast one. We ate here a few trips ago, and it wasn’t as tasty as I remembered from then. Bonus--we had a partial view of Wishes as we ate.

--Yak and Yeti fast food; we waited an unacceptably long time for one of our entrees, but I must say the chicken fried rice here is one of the best food bargains at WDW.

--Be Our Guest for lunch; glad we got to try it, but I must admit that I was a tad disappointed. The sandwiches were just okay, but the cupcake was delicious. I had preordered our meal, but I don’t see how that was more efficient or got us our food any faster. The Music Room was closed and while the ballroom was pretty, it was too busy and big to enjoy. We first took a seat in the West Wing room, but it was so dark in there, I had to move!

--D-Luxe Burger; we split the Bacon and Bleu Burger which was good, but I didn’t taste a lot of bleu cheese. The fries were good, and they offer various dipping sauces for them (I think we had a Garlic Ranch?)

--Amorette’s Patisserie; all I can say is YUMMY and GORGEOUS desserts! DH had a Key Lim Tart and I had the salted caramel, banana, Nutella crepe. I would do the cake decorating class they are going to offer in a heartbeat!

--Catalina Eddy’s; we split a pepperoni pizza and a Caesar salad; DH had some tasty berry sangria-thing and I also had some ice cream. We don’t like many of the fast-food places at DHS, but this was okay.

--Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie; yes, I love pastries and dessert! We stopped here one night for a snack, and I had the crème brulee.

Behind the scenes of Freaky Friday the Musical Cast Recording

We were excited to discover that Disney Theatrical was working on a stage musical version of it’s “Freaky Friday” movies. Both the 1976 movie starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster and the 2003 remake with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan have a lot of charm. I’ve not read Mary...

Multiple Magic Bands

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-03-26 02:58
We will be headed to WDW in July 2017. We already have magic bands from our last trip from last year, but we are getting new ones with our new reservation. Can we use multiple linked magic bands or do we need to disable the old ones. We would like to order alternate colors and have the option to change throughout the trip. We also saw some on the MDE shopping site that we might like to get.
So can we have and use multiple magic bands as long as they are all registered to the same person/family member?

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-03-25 17:09
Read some very disturbing news just now. At least it is for me, I don't know what you would think. It is from (Market Insider).. Wall street is saying this and some analyst allso.

Wall Street is starting to talk about the possibility of Apple buying Disney (DIS, AAPL)

It says Apple has the money 2billion. Iger and Jobs were friends at the same college way back when. Iger is hopping to stay on as CEO after this year. Of course Apple holds a very large share in Disney. I guess this was all planed. Well, I hope that plan dose not happen.

fastpass hack?

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-03-24 17:31
I recently went on trip with just husband. My phone could not handle the app( too old) so making fast passes was hard. My DD was home and I texted her and had her add herself to the party and then make fast passes for me from home. Each time we went on a ride I texted her and she made another FP and off we went. We did this all day everyday no problems. Rode everything we wanted with no wait whatsoever. We park hopped and it still worked. I would say I had easy 10+ fast passes each day maybe more like 15. It was awesome.

Question is this a hack , did we get lucky or is it the way it should be done.

Pixar concert with live orchestra coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios
