Mission: Space Re-Opening Delay?

Tue, 2017-07-18 01:56
Conflicting information has recently begun to develop regarding the re-opening of the Mission: Space attraction.

While recent Epcot Cast reports indicate that preparations are internally underway for the announced August 1st re-opening, the Official Operational Calendar has been updated to show an October 1st re-opening.

The official notice for Guests remains, "Mission: SPACE is closed for refurbishment and is expected to reopen in late summer 2017."

It has yet to be confirmed if the update to the Operational Calendar is an error or if there is a developing change with the refurbishment.

Looking for a hat

Mon, 2017-07-17 16:56
So I went to WDW to celebrate my fortieth birthday six years ago. I had a hat I really liked. It was orange and brown and had the well-known quote "por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas" written on it. Unfortunately, I forgot to remove the hat when I went on Splash Mountain and it was lost forever :mad: I have made some effort over the years to find another one but have been unsuccessful. I think my wife got it at a WDW outlet store. Can anyone help me find a new one? Thanks.

Sheraton Vistana Resort Villas

Mon, 2017-07-17 16:38
Greetings! Has anyone stayed here recently...the one on Vistana Centre Drive? We are planning a four-night trip focusing on just Universal, and were going to stay at one of the resorts there. However, we received an offer for Sheraton to stay here for $275 for four nights.

Any opinions on people who have stayed here, or the idea in general as opposed to staying at Universal for four nights?

Thank you!

Sept 10 - 17

Sun, 2017-07-16 23:32
HI All,

I was just able to book a last minute trip (55 Days is last minute for me) for Sept 10 -17 at Saratoga Springs. It will be DW, our 19 y/o boy / girl twins, and myself.

Everything I look at tells me this looks like a pretty good week to grab, F&W going on and we have never been, supposedly low crowd volume this week with all kids just back to school, and humidity at least starts to drop a bit.

My concern is the time frame, we are at 55 Days now, I still need to get my confirmation number from DVC to link my reservations, magic bands, tickets, etc. I am not so much concerned about dining reservations but I am concerned about fastpass +. I know this should be a low volume time of year but with the opening of Pandora do you thinks crowds will still be extreamly heavy?

I was hoping to be able to just kind of go with a low planned agenda and just go with the flow. I am just afraid I will be locked out on TSM, Soarin, and the other new E-Ticket rides seeing I am already behind the 8 ball 5 days.

Anyone with experience during this time frame that can comment on past crowd levels? Is it reasonable to think we can still expect relatively low crowd volume as compared to the heavy summer crowds?
