Park hours for November

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-09 05:26
Any idea of when the park hours for November will be out? We can make ADRs starting May 1st and I like to plan which parks on which days based on park hours. Dining planning is affected by this as well so I’m hoping they are out soon.

Muppets in Magic Kingdom

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-04-08 02:13
Ok, I've been to WDW sooooo many times but have NEVER seen something I just read about. There are Muppets in 3 windows I believe in Liberty Square around Hall of Presidents? Can someone please tell me where, exactly, this is and when they perform?

I may need an intervention for my packing - and an actual question

intercot.com - Sun, 2018-04-08 01:01
We leave on May 12th, and I have my suitcase all packed! Except that I keep adding and changing my mind about stuff. But I feel VERY well prepared - I've got three pairs of shoes, lots of expensive hiking socks, and 40 cubic yards of moleskin and blister bandages. I have collapsible water bottles, a bunch of zip lock bags for keeping things dry, my own laundry soap. An extension cord to make it easy to plug things in where we want, and my husbands C-pap machine so I don't smother him with a pillow. I have over the counter medications for EVERYTHING....as I proudly and (loudly) announced to my daughter in the drug store.."From headaches to diarrhea, I've got it all!" (not sure why those people in line all backed away....extras of toiletries I meet need. I discovered packing cubes this year and I love 'em - AND I have each day's individual outfit all together in a ziplock of its own.

Now, I do want to take a few snacks, mainly for the teenage daughter - some granola bars, fruit leathers and trail mix. My question is what to do about that horrible Florida water. I want to avoid buying expensive pop or water in the parks - hence the collapsible water bottles I mentioned above. What can I put in the tap water to make it palatable - we usually take Crystal Light but that's not super convenient - do those "Mio" or similar water flavouring drops work? And is it TRUE that carts will give you free ice water (I think I'd still feel embarrassed to ask if I wasn't buying anything else). AND wondering if the carts at Universal do the same?

Disney Magic Kingdom App

intercot.com - Sat, 2018-04-07 00:22
I believe I’ve talked about this app on here before. I love it! Am I the only one obsessed with it? The next batch of characters to be released for it will be LILO and Stitch! My big question with the game though is why doesn’t Donald Duck play a bigger role in the game?? He seems to be forgotten about. Just my two cents!

Disney's Hollywood Studios has internally announced that Scary Apothecary & Sweet Spells dining/dining retail locations will close on April 16, 2018.

Sunscreen on a May trip?

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-04-06 16:25
What's the Orlando sun like in May? I need to be prepared for what kind of sunscreen and how much - I HATE the stuff, but I'm Scots-Irish so my family says I'm so white I glow in the dark. I freckle like crazy and have never had a tan in my life. We went to Mexico in March of last year and I found I had to slather it on and repeat frequently. Similar for Florida, I'm guessing? (I've been in September - is it like that? Mostly we've gone in December and only ever hit a day or two that needed it).

What are you watching?

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-04-06 13:31
Just checking in here with a few viewing suggestions...

We recently finally watched "The Guest Book" which we had all 10 episodes on our DVR, really cute by the creator of Raising Hope and My Name is Earl. I don't know if I would recommend it to my mom ha ha but we loved it. Cute, short, it's been renewed for Season 2. Can binge watch on TBS.com or the TBS app I think.

We are in the middle of Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet. Silly gore but after watching all of Justified between Seasons 1 and 2 of this show it's hilarious to see "Deputy Raylan Givens" in this totally different role. Netflix. (Justified is good if you haven't seen it.)

Just started "The Trust" on FX, a slightly modified take on the Getty saga which just had a movie made about it. Donald Sutherland is a VERY creepy grandpa and the "Fixer" role is great. Two episodes have aired and they are available on demand to catch up on.

We also just started "Billions" on Showtime Anytime, only a couple episodes in and might be too slow for hubby but I'm enjoying it. Pretty twisted.

I'm still laid up a bit from ankle surgery so welcome any suggestions :) Can also recommend I, Tonya, and Three Billboards for Redbox rentals.
