Has anyone tried Tiffins?

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-05-24 01:42
I am wondering if it is worth the Signature price/two Table credits. I'd like to do both Tiffins and Cali Grill, but not sure it's worth it.

Hall of Presidents

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-05-24 01:29
I saw this on Facebook, and I'm hoping it's an ugly rumour. It said that President Trump would not be given a speaking part and would just be an animantronic. :mickey:

FP Question

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-05-23 17:58
Hello everyone! I really apologize if this has been asked many times before. My family has used fp+ before, but I have never had this scenario come up before, so I thought I see if you guys know the answer.

We have tickets linked to our MDE room only reservations. We have park hopper tickets, so we will be visiting two parks each day.

Is it possible to book two tier two fp options at HS in the morning and book the tier one fp at AK for Rivers of Light? Are you able to split the three fp bookings between two parks if you have PH tickets?

Thanks in advance!

RIP - Sir Roger Moore: Let the Bond debate begin

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-05-23 14:50
Just read that Roger Moore passed away today at age 89. I actually very surprised that after 50 years of the franchise that he's the first to pass away.

Now for the fun part, rate your James Bonds.

  1. Sean Connery
  2. Daniel Craig
  3. Timothy Dalton
  4. Pierce Brosnan
  5. Roger Moore
  6. George Lazenby


Connery for me will always be Bond, and the three movies From Russia With Love, Thunderball and Goldfinger epitomize the classic Bond.

Daniel Craig, I just love the reboot of the franchise with Craig and him taking it to another physical level that we haven't really seen before.

Dalton/Brosnan are about tied for me. Brosnan was supposed to be Bond until NBC pulled him back for Remington Steele, and Dalton took over, only to get bounced once a decade of lawsuits stalled the franchise. Dalton brought that first dark edge to Bond, but he was handcuffed by generic scripts. Brosnan brought back the swagger and bit more of the humor, but by the end was hurt by poor scripts.

Moore was a victim of the campy '70's and '80's and his Bond pales in comparison to the others. For Your Eyes Only was probably his best turn at the role and shows what he could have been.

Lazenby actually imo, had the best story with On Her Majesty's Secret Service, one of my favorite Bond books, but he simply gets lost in the one and done shuffle.

Would have been nicer to have seen Moore play Bond at a younger age, but that was when he was tied into doing The Saint.

When do you need magic bands?

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-05-23 00:00
At what age do you need to get your kids a magic band? We will have several small children. Do they really need a magic band? I can't imagine a 2 turning 3 year old keeping it on, and I don't want to have 5 magic bands on my arm as I traipse around the park.

The "Official" Pre-Trip Report....

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-05-22 20:06
WHEN: Aug. 9-15

WHO: DH / DW / DS15 / DS17 & GF

WHERE: POLY!!


So, other then dealing for the first time (15th trip! - very fortunate are we) as a family with the lovely Florida summer heat and humidity....we are off. The DW managed to get a good rate at our all time fave POLY, moving from our original POR ressie - the DS' do not know this however so a surprise awaits. DS17's GF has never been to the "World" so hopefully we show her a good time; she is really excited to go. Slightly longer trip then the past several but building in breaks for the midday sauna each day we will probably cover similar ground as most visits.

Dining will be a bit different this go around - our DS' are looking to dine on there own a few times so DW & I will be doing our own thing a few nights. I believe as of now we are looking at BOG(lunch arrival day), Yak & Yeti, Prime Time, Crystal Palace, Cape May Buffet and, of course, O'Hanas for DS' 18th bday.

Can't wait to hit up some of the new attractions/shows since our last visit, checking out the ongoing construction around the parks AND hitting up one or both of the water parks which we haven't done in many trips. Summit Plummet here I come!

75 days as of this post.... :cool:

Question about Annual Pass Renewal

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-05-22 15:54
So....I renewed my annual pass a week prior to my previous one expiring, (expiration was May 11th). I don't need another Magic Band, I have plenty, but is Disney going to mail me another passholder card? My current passholder card has my old expiration date written on it, additionally the card has "2016-2017" printed on it. I would assume I need a new one that has "2017-2018" on it as the card is what is needed to get a discount at restaurants & such.
