The Baseline Tap House is Now Open at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Sat, 2017-09-30 22:38
The Baseline Tap House is the newest restaurant to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios and is effectively the replacement for the Writer's Stop:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts ... BaseLine Tap House sits among the vintage office buildings and warehouses that represent the glory of Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. Formerly known as the Figueroa Printing Company, this re-purposed print shop specializes in beer and wines from the Golden State of California, featuring craft ales, lagers and cider as the stars of the drink menu, along with California wines on tap and specialty cocktails that you won’t want to miss! If you can’t decide on one drink, then try one of BaseLine’s customizable beer flights, with up to 126 possible combinations of craft beers! Rounding out the drink menu, the pub also offers gourmet non-alcoholic lemonade and soda on tap.

In addition to offering delicious drinks, the pub will be serving up savory dishes such as a Bavarian Pretzel served with mustard and beer-cheese fondue dipping sauces, spiced almonds and a charcuterie board highlighting delicious California cheeses. This delectable array of small plates is sure to be the perfect way to savor the afternoon or cap off an evening out.

Also make sure you check out the photos and video that intrepid INTERCOT Field Reporters Christine & John W. posted on the INTERCOT Instagram from the Grand Opening Eve for Baseline Tap House and the surrounding Grand Avenue "land". Attached Images

Baltimore at Christmas

Sat, 2017-09-30 19:41
Our daughter will be working a show in Baltimore through the month of December. My wife and I are planning to fly up and spend time with her 12/25-28 arriving mid afternoon on the 25th. They have no performances on Christmas day or on the 26th. I know that we want to make a trip to Ft McHenry on one of our days and we'd like to head into DC as well. We'll be staying downtown near the Inner Harbor. How is public transport (including rail to DC)? Any suggestions for must sees?

Frustrated

Fri, 2017-09-29 19:37
We have a trip planned for November 8-13. There will be my husband, adult son, adult daughter and son in law. At 11 months, I booked a 2 BR at my home resort...GF. Exactly 7:00 AM on the day of my 7 month window, I tried booking BW. No luck! I have a waitlist for two different type rooms at BW and am orayingnit comes through since I hate to use all of the points required for GF. I know BW is extremely hard to get, inknkw thst it is Food and Wine Festival and I know that I still have time. I have had to go on Waitlist for BW before and I have always been lucky. My question...has anyone else ever had a waitlist come through for a 2 BR with only 6 was to go??? It's so frustrating being a dvc member but still not being able to get the resort we choose!

Party of one Day 4 - All Star Movies

Fri, 2017-09-29 18:27
Back home. Wrapped up visit to Epcot Food and Wine Fest and DW on Thursday. Checked my luggage at All Star Movies air line baggage check in around 7 a.m. or so. I had a breakfast reservation over at Kona Cafe at 10:05. So I took a Disney bus over to MK bus stop first then did the monorail transfer to the Polynesian resort. The resort has changed a lot since I stayed there in 1993 and 2001. The big water fall area in the middle of the lobby is just a memory. The pool area has changed plus the new accommodations in the water that I understand cost $$$$. To me it seemed like the Disney boats taking people over to MK come pretty close to those new in the water units. The accommodations at All Star Movies worked for me. A basic room. carpets need to be replaced as the carpet in the sink area is definitely worn out. Clean room and everything worked. As a money saver I would stay in a value resort again, if I plan to spend most of my time at parks or Disney Springs. For lounging around Yacht Club or other higher priced resorts would be my choice. I did notice that there are a scarcity of electrical outlets in the lobby areas of All Star Movies and even the Beach Club for recharging phones. I guess the view is you have outlets in your room, so charge them up there?? Back to Kona Cafe. I ordered the Tonga Toast. It seemed a little dryer than what I was used to. Afterwards I took a bus from Polynesian over to Disney Springs where I walked around one last time. Then took a bus back to All Star Movies. DME came on time and I had an uneventful half an hour or so ride to the airport. Overall my 2 day park hopper pass was all I needed. Until more new attractions are opened at HS I would suggest no one purchase a full day ticket there. Just park hop between HS and another park. The River ride at Pandora was okay for a quiet get out of the heat attraction. I wouldn't stand in the line for an hour. I'm thinking that night time might be the best time to experience Pandora visually. I'll catch the flight ride another year! Thumbs up to all the improvements made to the former Downtown Disney. I first went to Disney in 1991. I forget the name of the place that Disney Springs ultimately replaced. It was for the over 21 crowd and required a separate paid admission! The current form of Disney Springs is a nice change. With the construction still on going in HS it looks like I may not return to DW until 2019.

We are staying at Coronado Springs in December. I have very bad knees. What is a good building to request that is close to the food court and bus stop? Thank you!
