intercot.com - Sat, 2017-08-05 17:06
Friendly reminder for those attending ICOT20 and staying "on-site", your 60 Day Start Window for making Fastpass+ Reservations is as follows:

Arriving 10/11/17: 60 Day Mark is 8/12/17
Arriving 10/12/17: 60 Day Mark is 8/13/17
Arriving 10/13/17: 60 Day Mark is 8/14/17

FastPass+ will not be used for any of the Group Rides; however, a FastPass+ reservation will be recommended during the Pandora Exploration event on Sunday, October 15th.

The tentative schedule of events is posted here for you additional planning considerations.

Happy Planning! :mickey:

Campfires/S'mores at certain resorts

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-08-05 16:34
So this is our first trip staying at Beach Club (or anywhere that had campfires and smores) - just a couple questions. I think I heard you can buy the smores stuff there - does that include the sticks to roast the marshmallows? Is it done every night and what time does it start/end? I just thought that sounded neat - as we've never had the opportunity to do that on our Disney trips.

Thanks!

Epcot questions

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-08-05 16:31
Trying to plan our trip and determine how much time we want to spend in each park. We haven't been to Disney in two years - (since november 2015) - and I haven't kept up as much on Disney news as I usually do.

Epcot - the only thing I know of that has changed since then is the Frozen ride has opened. I thought I had heard things about the exhibits in Innoventions closing - we saw things like the Great Piggy Bank Adventure was gone (bummer for us - bc our kids really liked that). When we went into Innoventions the last trip, it looked pretty bare. Is Sum of All Thrills still there? The kids really like that as well and I seem to recall hearing that might possibly be going too.

I'm sure the fast pass for Illuminations was there when we were there last - but I can't remember. Where is the viewing area for that? We aren't thinking about getting fast passes for that - just trying to determine where the best place to watch it would be. Anyone have a favorite spot? How early do you get there to get a spot? We are going over the holidays so I assume it will be pretty crowded.

Thanks! Just getting back into the groove on the Disney trip planning and realizing I have a lot of questions!

Menus

Is it possible that the menus have changed. I went on disney website and this one to look at menus and there seems to be a difference between the two.

Thanks

A few years ago Garner Holt productions took over production of audio-animatronic figures from Walt Disney Imagineering. They’ve been creating amazing humanoid robotic figures ever since.

Express Pass....is it worth it?

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-08-04 21:16
Never been to Universal. We are going to do the 2 park 1 day pass and primarily stick to Harry Potter world. We are visiting mid November (week before Thanksgiving week). We are not staying on property at Universal (we are staying at WDW). The Express Passes for Universal are about $90 extra each on top of the ticket park entrance. Quite a costly day! However this is probably the one and only time I will be bringing my mom to see this so I am willing to do this if it is really worth it. However I have no desire to spend the extra money if I really don't need to . She is older with mobility issues. Can she ride any of the Harry Potter rides? The only other ride I thought she might be interested in was Jurasic Park???
Thoughts???

Transportation from WDW to Universal?

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-08-04 20:58
I am planning another trip to WDW! I am taking my mom who is older and has mobility issues. She really wants to go see Harry Potter "world" at Universal. We are not renting a car for this trip. We are staying on property at WDW for our stay and going one day to Universal. What are our transportation options to get to and from Universal from WDW resort?
Thanks for any responses!
