January trip?

Mon, 2017-05-15 22:47
Hello all!

We are looking to plan our next trip and we're looking to possibly visit in January. We have very active 5 and (then) 3 year old boys, and I am hoping to be pregnant with #3. We've gone in Sept, Oct, Nov/Dec, and May. What is a trip in January like? Pros/cons?

Thank you in advance!

Star Wars Dessert Party?

Mon, 2017-05-15 16:05
Hello everyone,
I'm wondering about how long the Star Wars Dessert Party takes, from start to finish? I am going in August with my two Star Wars fans (husband and son), and I decided to treat them to the Dessert Party. In the meantime, I plan to maybe shop around and just take in some solo time. Can anyone tell me how long I would have for this? I understand they would attend the party, then the Fireworks, correct? Also, is the party fun? The desserts looked glorious from what I've seen online.... We're so excited to go, the last time I was in WDW was 1998, and my husband and son have never been! Thank you for any and all replies, they are appreciated!!!! Hope your day is good :)

MNSSHP or just regular day in park?

Mon, 2017-05-15 14:40
We are going in October and was thinking about doing the party. It's just me and my husband no kids. Is it worth it to do the party for the $200.00 extra it will cost or should we just add another regular day in the park? I have us doing a regular day on that Monday at MK already.
We currently have park hopper tickets and I've done our dining for the week but would need to add another day or do the party for that one day to keep the one at BOG at 4:30 I have on that day. Any opinions?

Avatar Flight Of Passage Ride Restrictions

Mon, 2017-05-15 13:27
I have read some early reviews about the Avatar Flight Of Passage ride that are saying some guests are being turned away due to the ride restraints not fitting. Is this true?

Apparently there are multiple restraints and while some people have had no issues with "upper" belts, some are saying the leg restraints aren't fitting...and the other way around.

Also hearing there is no "test" seat available before getting in line for the ride. It would be awful to wait hours in line just to be denied boarding.

Anyone else know about this?

DDP and Kids

Mon, 2017-05-15 13:15
T-minus 15 days and counting til we arrive at POR Riverside! My 9 yr. old son is 5'1" and checks in at a buck twenty. My understanding is he doesn't have to do kids meals at counter service restaurants but what about table service? How strict are they about that?

Rivers of Light without the dining package?

Mon, 2017-05-15 02:57
I don't really understand what Rivers of Light is? Is it something you can see without the dining package? I've been calling and calling since they opened the reservations and have dining reservations at both Tiffins and Tusker house, but can't get the dining package. I am wondering if anyone has any insight into how necessary the preferred seating or dining package really is?

WDW without a car - How reliable are the buses?

Mon, 2017-05-15 01:28
Our family of 3 is going to Orlando for 2 weeks this summer, one week of Disney and one week of Universal. Since we're staying at Saratoga Springs for our Disney week, my wife wants to skip the rental car and depend on the WDW transportation for that week. That makes me nervous since I've never been without a personal vehicle on a trip like this. Also, we're traveling at near peak season (last week of July) and I'm worried about bus delays due to crowds. Any advice would be helpful. Should I be worried about this, or is the Disney transportation reliable enough? We're planning to be at each park at rope drop and probably stay until closing.

Interview for a lead position at work

Mon, 2017-05-15 01:02
I am so nervous yet excited at the same time. I have been in my position for 9 years now. Out of the level 2 analysts I am the one who has the most experience. Since our most recent lead took a trainer position for a new department, I have been filling the role waiting for them to post the position. They finally posted it. I applied and within the hour they sent the email for my phone interview.

My work HR dept has a whole Talent acquisition department (we are a very large hospital integrated delivery network) so no one is ever really promoted on merit, any position that opens up has to be posted and you have to apply for it.

I am cautious because we have done some reorganizing lately so my current supervisor, who will still be my supervisor in the new role, will be doing the interview and I only was just moved under her a couple months ago.

So 1, I am a little nervous about the phone interview with HR and 2 a little nervous about the full regular interview. My supervisor is great, I love her but since I haven't worked with her for very long we still haven't really connected as a team.

I am not very good in an interview setting. I get nervous and can't speak. working as a trainer and leader, I get questions all day and have no problem. I think maybe it's an authority thing? I don't know. I know my job inside and out, I know the guidelines and the systems better than anyone, but being able to convey that I do in an interview i stumble over words.

Any tips?

Last Man Standing

Sun, 2017-05-14 15:52
Sometimes I really wonder about the higher ups at ABC. The cancellation of this show baffels me. It has high viewership in its Friday night slot. I do have to wonder if it does have to do with the many things being rumored. Tim Allen is very vocal in his politcal and religious beliefs. I think this is an amazing part of the show. It is part of reality. Tim Allen we stand behind you and your show! Hopefully another network or cable station will pick up this great show. ABC take a look at what people want and keep it on the air!!
