Driving from Philly. Where to stopover?

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-04-11 17:02
Finalizing details for our next trip in the beginning of November. Airfare is nuts right now for our travel dates so we are fairly certain we’ll be driving from Philadelphia with our almost-4yo DD. We’ve done the drive before, but it was 10 years ago- no kids! So we drove right through. I figured I’d pop in here and see if anybody had a recommendation for a favorite and relatively inexpensive hotel by 95 to stay at for our stopover?
We are most likely leaving Halloween around 6 and figure we can at least make it to Richmond, maybe even a little further.

TV channels in rooms?

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-04-11 16:24
Does anyone know if the TV's in the resort rooms catch the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN)? My son will appear as an extra in an episode of Queen Sugar, and it looks like it will air while we are in Disney. Of course we will set the DVR at home, but he may want to watch it when it airs. I don't know of any way we could record it from our room???? Not even sure if Disney resort rooms have that channel?

Art of Animation bus service? food court?

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-04-10 13:53
We are staying at POP Century next month. Depending on where our room is located, it looks like we could get to the AOA food court just as easily as the POP food court. We may head over there for breakfast and hop on their bus to the parks.

Can anyone tell me how efficient their bus route is? Do they share it with another resort? Last time we stayed at POP, they had their own bus route, but that was before AOA opened. (One reason why we prefer POP over the All Star resorts!)

I'm guessing breakfast at the AOA food court would be comparable to breakfast at POP food court . . . Is that correct? Any big differences in their menus or quality of food?

Woody’s Lunch Box to Feature Fun Signature Fare in Toy Story Land

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 23:04
From a new twist on a Disneyland Classic to updated spins on childhood favorites, Woody's Lunch Box has announced a line of signature menu items:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts
... Opening June 30, Woody’s Lunch Box will dish up all sorts of sandwiches and sides that blend classic flavor combinations with a modern twist, plus nostalgic soda floats and specialty beverages. We caught up with the team at Flavor Lab – the concept development kitchen – to ask how much fun (and challenging) it was to take sentimental food favorites and give them a modern make-over…in flavor and presentation.

S’more French Toast Breakfast Sandwich – Oozy goodness in a chocolate ganache- and marshmallow-stuffed French toast topped with graham cracker crumbles. Inspired by the classic American campfire treat.

Smoked Turkey, Eggs, Swiss, Peppers, and Onions on Sourdough – The perfect hand-held stack of breakfast goodness.

Breakfast Bowl – The green army men line up for this hearty bowl of potato barrels, brisket-country gravy, and scrambled eggs.

BBQ Brisket Melt – With a nod to cowboy Woody, this Texas-style smoked brisket features cheddar, Monterey Jack, pickles, and BBQ sauce on garlic butter-grilled sourdough.

Monte Cristo with Raspberry Jam – Woody’s version of this classic sandwich has layers of ham, turkey, Swiss, and raspberry jam…and is grilled to a golden brown.

Totchos – Potato barrels, corn chips, chili, and cheese – what’s not to love??

Sides include tomato basil soup, vegetable macaroni salad, and potato barrels. Mini Babybel snack cheese, the official snack cheese of Walt Disney World Resort, is also an option to eat with your meal or as an on-the-go snack.

Raspberry Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Dried Fruit and Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Caramelized Bacon – Even toys need a sweet treat! Inspired by breakfast toaster pastries, this modern interpretation, with its uniquely delicate crust, is the perfect hand-held pastry.

The littlest toys can enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich or turkey sandwich, both served with potato barrels and mandarin oranges. For toys looking for more lighter options, they can grab one of these tasty bites at Woody’s Lunch Box or check out the many other healthful offerings available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios including fresh fruits and vegetables, salads, and grilled meats and fish.

Banana Split Yogurt Parfait – Layers of banana-vanilla Greek yogurt (with a hint of honey), fresh bananas, strawberries, and pineapple topped with granola and chocolate chips. A delicious and healthful way to start the day!

Smoked Turkey, Tomato, and Lettuce on Multigrain Bread – This quintessential lunch box sandwich is a light and fresh option. And to give it a kick of flavor, we add a creamy Dijonnaise.

Soda Floats – All toys would agree that a refreshing soda float is the perfect nostalgic beverage!

The adorable Alien Sipper may be purchased and filled with any fountain drink or the signature Mystic Portal Punch – Powerade Mountain Berry Blast with flavors of lemon-lime and tangerine.

The big kids can enjoy the backyard with Grown-Up’s Lemonade cocktail (cherry vodka, Odwalla Lemonade, and black cherry purée), beer, or hard cider. Attached Images

Fastpass Question

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 21:12
My sister, myself and my granddaughter (age 6) have planned a trip in June and our fastpass window opens this week. My sister and I live in two different states. How confusing would it be if both of us tried to get fastpasses for all three of us at the same time? Is that even possible? Advice/comments, appreciated.

Whats the deal with park hours?

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 19:51
I will be at the parks in May 12-18 and I am really disappointed with the hours. I remember when during the weekends the parks were open until 11 and during peek season all week. The week I am going, there is only 1 night past 9 and its only to 11 not 1am or 3am. That really *****. I like being in the parks at night better than the day. It seems to come alive at night. They even offer more early entry than late closing. I am really disappointed that my night will come to an end so early. I don't want to hang out at Disney Springs or the pool. I want to be in the parks like I paid for. Why did they take the late weekend hours away? Will it be dark enough to enjoy all the shows that are lit up? I liked watching the shows and then going to ride some more. With it closing at 9. You would have to head to the exits after the show. It seems they glorify the extra magic hours but really its just the original hours. Nothing extra......I don't get it.

I hate to be "that guy" but has anyone heard any rumors on when the fall promotion will be released? Looking at the last few years, I am guessing it may be soon.

Disney Springs dining?

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 14:17
Seems there are so many new dining establishments in Disney Springs that I don't even know where to start! We will be arriving early morning and plan to stop by Disney Springs before going to our resort. The plan is to activate our military tickets, do a little shopping, and have lunch before we head to our hotel.

Of all the new places that have opened over the past few years the only place we have tried so far is The Boathouse. We love it, but have dined there twice already and would like to try something new.

Any suggestions? Places you have tried and loved? Places to avoid? It will be myself and 3 teens, 18, 18, 16.

Universal Studios in Hollywood CA

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 10:59
Going to be vacationing out West. And while not going to Disneyland will be going to Universal Studios. Just wondering if it's better to get tickets before we go or would it be the same price at the gate? Because I really can't find any discounts now for them.

I was hoping that my AMEX cc would offer another discount like they did a year or so ago. But nothing of course. If I do order them ahead of time I was going to get them off their site but just wondering what I will be saving. Thanks
