SeaWorld banning single-use plastic straws and shopping bags from all its parks

TheDisneyBlog.com - Sat, 2018-06-09 01:58

If you’ve been paying attention to the news these last few months, you’ve probably heard about the whales, sharks, and other aquatic life that wash up dead on beaches with stomachs filled with plastic debris that has accumulated in the ocean after being discarded by humans on land. It’s horrible,...

Training after surgery

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-06-08 23:53
Hey all. Looking for advice. I just had surgery to remove my gall bladder and I’m scheduled to do my 1st 1/2 marathon for Disney’s Wine and Dine.
How long after surgery did everyone feel good enough to start adding miles to their training? Thanks in advance.

I know the Lion King show used to be outside. Is that still the case or is it in an inside theater now (i.e. air conditioned). Thanks.

The re-imagining will reportedly primarily focus on a re-design and update of the bar area.

Random thoughts from our adventure

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-06-06 21:07
Has anyone noticed that all buildings on property seem to be kept at a higher temp than in previous years? I used to love the cold rush of full blast AC when entering any WDW property. At least this year my room thermostat was not restricted so I could play global cooling. Yay!

Many reviews state that those staying at CBR don't notice the construction but imho CBR is destroyed. It'll be fantastic when it's done, for sure but if I'd never stayed there before then I probably wouldn't ever again. On the bright side the new Spyglass grill was a nice new addition.

The Noodles at Skipper Kanteen are fire on the lips. That's a good thing for the first 10 min but after that it's inedible. Loved the first 10 min of the dish however. :)

I did notice an increase in Disney "moments" where cast memebers empower themselves to make things right. Based on our schedule we weren't going to be able to get fast passes to the rides we wanted so my 8 year old started crying as he passed by Splash Mountain. A cast member saw this and gave us all fast passes. Also, in MGM I was looking for replacement batteries for my daughter's Star Wars Mickey light up ears that were several years old and not working anymore. A cast member looked for the batteries first but upon seeing that they don't offer the size she offered to simply swap out the old ears for new ones with new batteries. Nice!

One last thing...everything, everywhere is under construction or destruction. It's definitely a transition period. I just hope from this point forward it doesn't always look like a work in progress.

It was a great trip overall!

Quebec City in Winter

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-06-06 20:26
Husband turns the BIG 4-0 this March. He's a die hard snowboarder and I ski occasionally. I am taking him on a surprise ski and ride trip for his birthday and want to do it in Quebec. We'll be there the week of March 10th. I am thinking of getting a ski in/ski out air B&B condo at Mont St. Anne ski area for the first half of the week, and then getting a studio Air B&B in a neighborhood in Quebec City for the second half of the week before driving home. What should we check out in the city on our non-ski days? I am thinking of a food tour, which has quickly become my new favorite way to explore a new place! It will be super crazy cold, so I am guessing not a ton of outdoor touristy things will be open! Is there an Ice Hotel nearby we could check out? Other museums or historical buildings? Is it possible to eat too much poutine (asking for a friend)? What are the best neighborhoods - so far I have found very affordable and nice looking places on Air B&B in Old Quebec and Nuovo St-Rock areas.

Dining Suggestions within Animal Kingdom?

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-06-06 14:35

Other than Flametree BBQ and fast food spots, I have yet to try a restaurant within Animal Kingdom park where reservations are suggested. Anyone have any suggestions on which restaurants to try within Animal Kingdom? If so, what did you order that was tasty food? Also, this will be a party of 1 experience later this year.

Star Wars: Galaxy Edge - Do you want to visit immediately or wait??

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-06-06 14:23
The news coming out about when Galaxy's Edge will open has affected my plans for next summer. I was thinking I was going to visit California and Disneyland in Summer 2019, but with the announcement that Galaxy's Edge will be opening out there, I am seriously reconsidering my plans. While on the one hand, I definitely love to try out new attractions and see new things at Disney, I CANNOT HANDLE CRAZY CROWDS!! I don't think I have claustrophobia, but if I am smushed like sardines, I start to freak out a bit. I can only imagine what it will be like for the first year when it opens on both coasts. SO, how do you guys feel about it? Do you want to be one of the first people to see Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge when it opens in Disneyland and/or Walt Disney World, or will you wait until the absolute insanity calms down (however many months/years that will take....)?
