Pros & Cons of Beach Club/PO Riverside/Wilderness Lodge

Sat, 2017-09-16 01:20
We are planning a very "last minute" trip to Disney March 2018. It will be our family of 4- me, DH, DD 15 and DS 20. We usually stay at the Wilderness Lodge, but are considering staying somewhere else this time. We LOVE WL ,but are considering Beach Club since it is so close to Epcot & HS and we can walk to both of those locations. I've been wanting to try POR, but feel it may be so far from everything. Also considering Copper Creek Villas at WL, depending on the price.

Please give me some Pro's and Cons of each of the properties to help me decide.
Thank you!:mickey:

Oogie Boogie is the Star of the 17th Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House

Fri, 2017-09-15 23:19
Disneyland park has revealed their 17th Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House for the 2017 Halloween Season:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts ... This year, the fanciful gingerbread creation features Oogie Boogie, who gets his chance to shine after a 13-year absence in the ballroom, thrilling fans of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

“The gingerbread mansion this year has a bug problem – gingerbread bugs! But it’s not a problem that a gingerbread Oogie Boogie can’t fix. He pried open the roof of the gingerbread mansion and has his fork at the ready, happy to fix the infestation in the only way he would – by eating them,” says Tim Wollweber, associate art director for Disney Parks, who designed this year’s house. “But quite a few bugs have gotten loose and are rampaging across the ballroom table, tormenting the gingerbread zombies there, who are forced to defend themselves with silverware!”

The house is six feet tall to the roof point, but the animated Oogie Boogie himself is seven feet tall. There are more than 70 bugs “scurrying” across the ballroom table and the ballroom itself. We have been told there might be a few gingerbread bugs that have escaped out of the ballroom … think you can find them?

An unusual scenario..

Fri, 2017-09-15 22:48
Hello!

My wife and I are going to take our extended family to WDW about a year from now, renting multiple rooms using points (Bank-Use-Borrow). The plan is for 7 nights. Things get a bit convoluted with my sister's boyfriend. He can only go for 4 nights. Once he leaves, my sister will move into our mom's room for the final 3 nights.

Seems simple, right? Well, I started thinking about it and if the DDP is being used, how will that figure into the move. Will we have to do 2 separate ressies for my mom (4 night-3 night)? Can my sister buy 4 nights of DDP for her BF and 7 nights of DDP for her and just take the balance with her?

Member services is busy right now with complications from Irma and requests that I call back if not travelling in the next 7 days. We are just a couple days away from needing to know how this will work, though. Has anyone done a similar trip? Any insights?

Thank you in advance!

FP+ Tier Question

Fri, 2017-09-15 12:07
Sorry if this has been asked before...

Speaking specifically for Epcot, if we get a FP+ ahead of time for Soarin' and maybe one for Living with Land, but no others, after we arrive and ride those two rides, can the 3rd one we pick be from the same tier as Soarin'? Or do they force your 3rd FP to be in the second tier like they would when booking ahead of time?

Thanks!

Blue Bayou

Fri, 2017-09-15 04:29
I was going through some old letters from a girl friend and came across a Blue Bayou menu that she had sent to me during the summer of 1975. The entrees ranged from $3.50 to $4.35. The Monte Cristo sandwich served with a fruit compote, considered a specialty, was $2.75. It costs 10 times that much now! Drinks were 25¢ and no dessert was over 75¢.
Wow. :jaw:
