February Break

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

FP+ for World Showcase

Mon, 2017-11-06 16:11
Planning a late-start day at WS, arriving through the Intl Gateway. Hoping to book Frozen FP+. It's towards the end of our trip, so fingers crossed. But...how do I use my other two FP+ selections? I'd potentially like to book another FP for Soarin' in the evening, but we'd have to use up all 3 FP's early in order to make that work, right? Do I have to book 3? Character Spot and...a FP for 3 Caballeros? That hurts.

We just plan to eat our way around WS and look at the topiaries, as it will be the first week in March.:flower::flower::flower:

Jingle Cruise Closing Date

Mon, 2017-11-06 00:03
My mom and I are going to be at WDW from Jan 3-11 and made our fast passes yesterday. We made one for Jungle Cruise the night of the 4th but when are they anticipating to switch from the festive version back to the original? We like both obviously but it would be nice to see Jingle Cruise again!

Never coming back to Disneyland

Sun, 2017-11-05 23:08
I was hoping this trip would redeem Disneyland, but it hasn’t. I went to get my guest assistance card, and the guy told me that they quit giving those out 5 or 6 years ago. I told him that I was here in May of 2016 and used one. He repeated that they quit using them 5 or 6 years ago. Then his suggestion was to rent a wheelchair. I have to change positions every 15 minutes, so I cannot just sit in a wheelchair. I pointed this out to him. He told me to just get out and push it when I needed to stand up.
In 1997, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident while transporting a patient. I had to use a wheelchair and a disability placard. I worked very hard to get to the point that I don’t need those any more.
6 years ago I had a perforated ulcer and no one expected me to live. 5 years ago I was battling cervical cancer. I was not visiting Disneyland those years.
Disneyland can kiss my grits if they think I am going to go backwards in what I can do.

More Details Announced for Pixar Fest Coming to Disneyland Resort Spring 2018

Sun, 2017-11-05 21:22
More details have been announced for the Pixar Fest event coming to the Disneyland Resort in Spring 2018:

Beginning April 13, 2018, this limited-time celebration of friendship and beyond will feature the debut of an all-new fireworks spectacular and the return of two favorite parades as well as even more beloved Pixar characters, new décor, atmosphere entertainment, themed food and beverage and new merchandise items.


“Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” will light up Disneyland park beginning April 13. In addition to dazzling pyrotechnics and memorable music, the theme of friendship, ever-present in most Pixar films, is celebrated in this nighttime spectacular. Guests are invited to embark on an emotional journey that starts when unlikely Pixar characters first meet. As they set out on adventures and overcome obstacles together, “Together Forever” celebrates the everlasting friendships forged by beloved Pixar pals. The story comes to life through projections on iconic park locations: Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. This nighttime spectacular will even feature a special flyover by Buzz Lightyear at Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Also on April 13, the popular “Paint the Night” parade will return, this time to Disney California Adventure park. The parade features many Pixar stories, including characters from “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Cars,” and another Pixar story will join “Paint the Night” parade later in the year.

With the launch of Pixar Fest, “Pixar Play Parade” will make its way through Disneyland park for the first time. The parade will begin as most Pixar films have, with an appearance by the iconic and adorable Pixar lamp. Other new parade elements will feature characters from “UP” and “Inside Out.”

The Pixar Shorts film festival will feature rotating favorites such as “For the Birds” and “Lava” at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park throughout most of Pixar Fest. The Paradise Gardens area will feature a new Pixar-themed musical troupe along with Pixar character greeting opportunities as well as crafts and activities for our younger guests.

Guests can get into character and celebrate friendship with a host of new merchandise, including an exclusive Pixar Fest charm bracelet. With multiple bracelet options and a variety of charms with fun friendship messages and favorite Pixar characters, guests can mix and match for themselves, or friends and family!

Wine/Dine 2018 (Nov 2018) --> ICOT run?

Sun, 2017-11-05 19:46
I would like to see how much interest we would have to have an ICOT run/meet during the Wine/Dine Half Marathon weekend. I have had one person tell me if I organize it - they would be interested....

It would be more of a run time meet than a fun in the evening time (2:45am wakeups come very early), and its too much money to spend to get swept due to lack of sleep.

If you might be interested... can you please post below....
