Christmas part at MK

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-11-08 02:38
We are going to Disney in a week. I have been tossing the idea of the Christmas party around. Is the party worth the extra fee? We will be just adults. Is it geared more towards families with children? Thanks for any advice.

Disneyland Duty Manager keeps park’s show ship-shape

TheDisneyBlog.com - Tue, 2017-11-07 12:47

Fast Pass Times

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-11-07 12:01
I know they have gotten much more strict on fast pass return, but is any time allowed after the one hour window given? In other words, if I have a FP that expires at 2PM, is it good for any period of time after that?

Thanks!

February Break

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-11-06 20:34
My DW starting working in the school district last year so it limits the time we can take vacation. Since I have NO interest in being in Disney World in the summer, we are going to try to go this February during the Presidents Day Week. Does anyone have experience with this week in terms of crowds? I heard it is very busy which is making me nervous. Did Easter Break once and crowds were pretty unbearable. Please share any feedback you have about this week. Thanks
