Finally!!

Wed, 2017-05-10 05:43
Bought our MNSSHP 2017 tickets, finally!! Seemed like I was in limbo waiting for Disney to release the party prices. One more item checked off our vacation list. This celebration trip of our retirement is shaping up nicely. Anyone else bought their MNSSHP tix?

Port Orleans thoughts? #1 Donald, are you out there?

Wed, 2017-05-10 02:17
I'm planning first trip in 6 years, and just checking to see if there is anything I need to know about changes to POR. That is really "home" for us - we did a few days at AKL once and really liked it as a change, but didn't much care for the "hotel" feeling and can't see a whole trip there. We did Carribean once and I hated every second of it (although hubby REALLY liked the hammock). Will I still love my beloved Riverside or have they done terrible things to it? LOL I should also say that every other trip was at Christmas time and this will be May, so I'm a little afraid it won't have the same magic....

package vs. tickets and room

Tue, 2017-05-09 21:46
Can anyone give opinions on vacation package vs. separate tickets and rooms? If I remember correctly, you can't do a dining plan if you do it the second way; but I'm wondering if I can save money that way. I'm considering snapping up the discounted Canadian tickets, then working on the accomadations a little later.

Spoilers or No?

Tue, 2017-05-09 20:10
Curious.

With YouTube and the many opportunities to preview new things that come to the parks...I was wondering - what type of person are you?

Do you avoid all sneak peeks and spoilers and preserve the experience of an attraction/land so it is completely fresh through your own eyes?

-or-

Do you like the sneak peeks and previews knowing that you can't get to the park as often as you like and so it's worth it to you to be able to be in the know?

I have noticed that there are more and more preview videos of Pandora hitting the YouTubes right now and for some reason I am a little bit conflicted as to whether I should watch or wait, so I have been avoiding them. And by the way I have no idea when we will be back - right now there is no trip planned. :( By the way, in the past I have not been a purist when it comes to things like this.

What are y'all doing?

There are no wrong answers...

All Star Sports

Tue, 2017-05-09 19:02
It's been a few years since we stayed at Disney for a night or two. Yesterday on our back from the day at Epcot, we decided to plan a two night stay in October or November. While looking at the values, I noticed All Star Sports was cheaper than the others. What is the reason? Thanks

Special Medical Request. Booked through Expedia, who do I contact?

Tue, 2017-05-09 14:23
Hi! We just booked our trip to Aulani. I went through Expedia as the package deal was cheaper. I have vertigo and its triggered by riding in elevators. I found a past post of mine that was requesting info on who to contact for special medical request and got the WDW Special Needs number.

My question is regarding booking through Expedia. I tried to call Aulani directly to inquire about my reservation, and they just directed me back to Expedia. I hate booking through Expedia, but it was such a good deal I went ahead and did it. Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I just call Expedia again and have them add the request? Or can I call the Disney Special Needs number and will they be able to add that to my reservation? I thought about faxing the request to Aulani directly 2-3 days before arrival. I just want to make sure we are on a low level. I would hate to be at Aulani and suffering from vertigo.

Thanks for your help!

Wine of the Month Club?

Tue, 2017-05-09 13:43
I'm looking to enroll my wife into a wine of the month club. She only likes sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. Is the one out there that can be that specific?

Thanks!

Must Do - Or Trip Is Just Not Complete

Tue, 2017-05-09 13:40
What is the one thing you MUST do or your Disney trip is not complete? I'm not talking major headliner attraction. Just something you or your family always make sure you do every trip. Whether it is a particular unpopular attraction, a special snack, character meet, etc. For example, we have a few:
Carousel of Progress - nobody loves it, but it would be weird if we skipped it!
Funnel Cake for breakfast from the little place next to the castle.
Muppet Vision 3D
Soda tasting at Club Cool

Curious to hear what other small thing is a CAN'T MISS for others.
