When can I make fast pass reservations

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-02-11 23:49
I have an upcoming trip booked. We have a reservation for two nights, and a reservation for seven nights. The reservation for two nights is a time when family are arriving from around the country and we don’t plan on going to the parks, just relaxing at the resort, mostly. It’s during the seven night reservation that we plan on doing our park time. We all have eight day park hopper tickets. My question is, can I make my fast pass reservations of the 60 + 10 based on the two day reservation (making all of the fast passes for the time after we’ve ‘checked out’ of the hotel), or do I make the fast passes based on the check in date of check in for the seven day stay?

Thanks much!

Minnie Vans Questions

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-02-11 18:55
Thinking ahead to our trip in August, what has been people's experience using the Minnie vans? We're traveling with a group of 10, 4 of whom need car seats, so we know that we'd need 2 Minnie Vans in order to make it work.

1. What are the odds of getting 2 of them around the same time?
2. How long have people had to wait for Minnie vans to arrive once they've requested one?
3. How long would it take to travel by Minnie van from Kidani Village to Boardwalk?
4. How long would it take to travel by Minnie van from Kidani Village to DHS?

Thanks! :mickey:

Jiko - Planning Question

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-02-11 17:09
We have a trip planned to the World in August. One night during the trip my parents, who will be with us, are taking our kids for the evening, and my plan is to surprise DH with dinner to celebrate our anniversary at Jiko. We've never been before and he has mentioned several times how much he'd like to someday. Trying to figure out where I'm fitting this dinner into our plans... figuring on appetizers, entrees and desserts, about how long should I be budgeting for dinner? 2 hours?

Thanks!

Disneyland and Disney World Prices Going Up - Date Based Pricing Coming

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-02-11 13:49
From Disney:

Quote: We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is to families and we will continue to evolve our pricing in way that gives families a range of options to meet their budget and helps better spread attendance throughout the year so they can make the most of every visit.

Disneyland® Resort


Effective Feb. 11, 2018 ticket prices, including Annual Passport prices at Disneyland Resort will be adjusted. As a part of this adjustment, the Annual Passport renewal discount will be discontinued.


Walt Disney World® Resort


Effective Feb. 11, 2018, ticket prices at Walt Disney World Resort will be adjusted. Other price adjustments include theme park parking, theme park lockers and Minnie Van service.


As previously shared, later this year, Walt Disney World Resort plans to implement date-based pricing. Given the small percentage of Guests that purchase a 1-day ticket at Walt Disney World, extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets will further advance our efforts spread to attendance throughout the year and ensure all Guests have a magical experience no matter when they visit.


You may notice some increases on your packages on Feb. 21, 2018. If you have a reservation with a deposit, we will honor that rate.

Flight of Passage

intercot.com - Sat, 2018-02-10 01:36
Husband and I will arrive on 4/22 and stay through 4/27. Getting close to the time to make our FP reservations and I have a question regarding FOP. We were there in November and at 7:00 AM on the day i could schedule, I logged in and tried to make FOP FP first....no luck for any day of our trip! We did wait in line to see it and it was wonderful, but standing in line, everyone around us said they made theirs with no trouble! Some actually had FP for every day of their trip!!! Can anyone tell me if it has gotten any easier to acquire FP for FOP? Or...what am I doing wrong? I’ve made our plans for years with no trouble!!!

Updates Announced for the American Adventure

intercot.com - Sat, 2018-02-10 00:35
Epcot has announced several updates for the American Adventure attraction:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

In addition to the update from film to digital, the show’s finale will return with some notable faces from America’s recent history. Newly-added American icons include individuals such as music composer John Williams, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and noted ballerina Misty Copeland.

And that’s not all: the iconic anthem “Golden Dream” has been re-recorded with all-new orchestration that brings the beloved music and lyrics to life in a way that will resonate more than ever. If you’re like me, you’re already humming along – ‘America, spread your golden wings!’

quiet pool fences

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-02-09 18:57
Question? Do all the pools quiet included have fences around them now or is it jjust the main pools? I am wondering the logistics with my 4 year old. Can she easily get to the pools if our room is by a quiet pool. Of course I plan to watch her like a hawk but she loves water and has no fear. She can swim well but still I worry.
