Printer Friendly Itinerary

Mon, 2017-09-04 14:14
Is there a Printer Friendly Itinerary option from MDX? I am approaching the 60 day mark and I would like to have my itinerary in front of me.

Of course, I could also use pen and paper. The old fashioned way.

Which would you do?

Mon, 2017-09-04 09:02
Would you maxpass Radiator Springs Racers and get in line for Guardians of the Galaxy or maxpass Guardians of the Galaxy and get in line for Radiator Springs Racers (not using the single rider line)?

Fast Pass Question

Mon, 2017-09-04 01:02
I'm a big guy. 6' 5" 325lbs. If I fast pass the Avatar Flight of Passage, and can't fit into the seat, can I swap that fast pass for a different ride? I really want to ride it but hate to waste a fast pass if I can't squeeze into the seat.... Thanks for all the help.

ESPN Zone

Is it possible to walk up to ESPN Zone and eat instead of making an ADR. I'm not sure what time he will want to take a break from Blizzcon.

Reservations & Magic bands

Sat, 2017-09-02 18:00
:goofy: I have 2 questions for you astute Disneyphiles:

1. Is it true that if you do it directly through Disney, you can make a room reservation 1 year in advance (does this include park tickets)?

2. I bought a souvenir magic band 2 years ago (the old kind without the removable disk). It was never linked with any account. Can it be use in a future trip? Can it be linked somehow to an account on my next trip?

Thank you very much. Our next trip is planned for Dec. 2018...after Toy Story Land opens.

Too Old for Disney Clothes?

Sat, 2017-09-02 17:50
So today I spot a sweatshirt with Stitch on in our local Primark ( budget clothes store, good for cheap t-shirts, socks etc that you don't mind wearing out fast). Stitch stuff is mega-hard to find around here so I grabbed it. At work it was implied that a 45 soon to 46 yr old woman is too old to wear clothes with Disney characters on as Disney is "just for kids". I disagree and will wear it and my other Disney clothes when I want to.
Does anyone agree with my work colleagues? Or do you wear Disney clothes and to heck with your age and what others think? And how can Disney be just for kids when the parks are full of adults without kids, like myself and hubby? ( who by the way wore a Stitch t-shirt to work on dress down day and people loved it! )

Halloween on the High Seas Returns to Disney Cruise Line for 2017

Sat, 2017-09-02 13:30
The Disney Cruise Line has announced details its 2017 Halloween Sailings:
Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts




... starting in September through the end of October, and there are haunted adventures to be had by each and every one of you! From joining the spine-chilling Sing and Scream to gathering around the Pumpkin Tree for mysterious fun, you won’t want to miss this Halloween celebration!


...

1. Experience the Mysterious Pumpkin Trees
Each ship’s Pumpkin Tree is unique, with Grim on the Disney Dream, Muckelbones on the Disney Fantasy, Bog on the Disney Wonder and Reap on the Disney Magic. Watch these trees magically transform from eerie and barren into the life of the party with sprouting Jack-O-Lanterns and flickering lights.

2. Dance the Night Away at a Mouse-Querade
Join your favorite Disney characters dressed in their Halloween best for Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party. This spooky costume party features games, dancing and of course, lots of candy!

3. Sing and Scream with Jack & Sally
During A Nightmare Before Christmas – Sing and Scream, enjoy an interactive movie experience and be immersed in the infamous Halloween Town. Afterwards, meet the couple that was “simply meant to be” in a special meet-and-greet with Jack Skellington and Sally.

4. Indulge in Eerie Eats
Our bone-ifed genius chefs have conjured up some yummy eats and tasty treats for you this Halloween. Make the day’s celebration extra special with indulgences like the not-so-scary Spider Cake and Spooky Juice.

5. Live to Tell the Tales
After a night of thrills and chills, gather on the upper decks for Haunted Stories of the Sea. A mysterious sea captain will guide the way and tell the tales of the legends who once sailed the high seas many moons ago.

6. Halloween Isn’t Just for Kids
Keep the fun going late at night in the ship’s nighttime entertainment district. With an adults-only costume contest and a Villainous Takeover on the dance floor, the party doesn’t stop when the little ones head to the youth clubs! Attached Images
