Primeval Whirl???

Fri, 2018-02-16 14:55
So, we are at AK today. We had just gotten off Primeval Whirl, and we noticed a large group of manager-type employees. But, they seemed more important. Some had blue prints, some were taking pictures, multiple were taking notes, some even sketching, and one was leading the discussion. The focus was around Primeval Whirl.

So, maybe a rehab w overhaul or scrap of this ride? Or, is this a rumor already known, and I am so far out of loop, I didn't Know?

BTW, this ride today had the quality of the crazy mouse at the county fair. It was horribly jerky to the point of pain!

Last night steak dinner...STK Orlando, Artist Point or Yachtsman Steakhouse?

Fri, 2018-02-16 02:29
Hey guys. Will be in WDW in nearly March for six nights and looking to try a new restaurant with my girlfriend and my 15 year old daughter. Never eaten at the three restaurants above but want to try one. My daughter loves steak but the adults do not necessarily need to eat meat. Has anyone been to all three or even a couple and could suggest one over the other? Thanks!

My biggest regret.

Wed, 2018-02-14 22:53
when we were kids my mom and dad would always take my sister and i to disney and it would always be a surprise. We would go eat, and suddenly we are at the airport and getting on a plane. Or they would say we were going camping (which we did a lot), and suddenly we were turning into the airport. you wake up in Shawnee, ks and go to sleep in Orlando, fl. how cool is that? It became a guessing game with us in the back seat "hey have you been missing any clothes"? we always looked for it, and they always got us. Back then it was harder because no intenet, they had to make calls, and get brochures. I really miss those times. I would highly recommend anyone to do that.

but my biggest regret is i always said that i wanted to do that to them. To take them out to dinner and suddenly we're on our way do disney. with our families and their grandchildren in tow. I waited too long. Just a couple years ago i could have, but My mom is really sick, she has alzheimers and arthritis all over her body. emotionally and phsycially she has an issue going down stairs to the dining hall at her elderly care center. My dad baby's her but it's tough on him. I really wish i had done that a few years ago.
So i guess what i'm saying, is surprise your kids, but surprise your parents too before it's too late. if you have memories of disney w/ your parents, take them too!

I understand you may have to move this another forum, but i wanted to just say, do it!

Contemporary Theme Park View

Tue, 2018-02-13 00:59
If you reserve, and pay for, a theme park tower room at Contemporary, are you guaranteed that view? Are some rooms better than others? I put “highest floor” on my online request but didn’t know if I should also ask for a particular area (room closer to the MK side)? I started a new job last year and this is my treat to myself. :cloud9: Thanks!
