Will Hawaii5-0 survive?

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-07-18 21:52
Now that Grace Park (Kono) and Daniel Dae Kim (Chin) have left due to a salary dispute, will the next season survive?

It's funny that the story line almost wrote them out at the end of the last season

Mid Sept Visit

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-07-18 21:42
After a few years out, we're returning to WDW for 14 nights. We're 60 days out and it took DW 70 minutes to secure the FPs, working them around the dining bookings.

Sad to say that Studios is now a fraction of what it was and now we find out that GMR will be confined to the film archive.

Also, Ellen will be a fossel fuel and Mission Space, Hall of Presidents & Splash Mountain will be down.

On the up side, we've managed to secure several FPs for Pandora FoP and a Be Our Guest dinner

Chef Mickey's

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-07-18 17:42
I just received the following and thought I'd pass along:

At this time, we are pleased to inform you that Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will no longer be impacted by kitchen maintenance during your dining experience. This means that our lively, all-you-care-to-eat-buffet with Chef Mickey and Friends is returning to its home within the Grand Canyon Concourse.

We will be there on Aug. 13.

Disney Visa Offer just released

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-07-18 17:24
I just received an email offer for Disney Visa card holders. A "Summer time flies" special. Its actually targeted to PO-FQ for $149 p/night plus tax for most stays between 7/17 and 8/20 with 8/20 being the final booking date. It says to ask about other great rates for AoA, ASM, CBR and Saratoga.

POFQ was for standard or garden view rooms. Seemed like a decent discount, around $80 or so off per night, 30% or so.

A pretty small window of time, basically one month.

I don't think I can take advantage, but might be worth a look see.

What's Closed in October 2017?

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-07-18 17:20
Leaving for WDW the middle of October. I am having such a difficult time trying to find out what will be closed at the parks while we are there.

I saw a post mentioning Great Movie Ride and the Ellen's Energy ride will be closing the end of August. Where can I find a list of things that will be closed? I looked around here but wasn't sure I was looking in the right place. I tried the WDW site but was more lost there than here, if that's possible..LOL..

Anyway, it's been a couple of years since we have been and know big doings are going on for sure. Maybe I should just see what rides will be there and hope that it's rather up to date?

FastPass picks will be here in about a month and trying to figure out what we need to do to get the most out of our visit with all the updates going on. Maybe we won't need 2 days at Hollywood Studios? Love Epcot but said the Energy ride is closing.

Any advice anyone can give would be appreciated.

Good morning everyone!

I know Moana was previously in HS but was just curious to find out if they moved her and if there are still opportunities to meet her?
