MNSSHP or just regular day in park?

intercot.com - 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

intercot.com - 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

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?

intercot.com - 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?

intercot.com - 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

intercot.com - 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?

New Hampshire Native Kate Farrell Flies to Victory at the 6th Annual Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend presented by PANDORA Jewelry

disneylandnews.com/ - Sun, 2017-05-14 20:23

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 14, 2017) – Kate Farrell of Windham, New Hampshire won the 6th annual Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend presented by PANDORA Jewelry. A long-time runner and cross country veteran, Farrell channeled her inner pixie power to fly past the competition with a winning time of 1:23:27. Audrey Urlacher of Boise, Idaho took second place with a time of 1:25:38 and Kellie Nickerson of Albuquerque, New Mexico finished in third, clocking in at 1:26:39.

“A runDisney race has been on my bucket list since I was little. I started running with my mom when I was nine and I ran high school and college cross country,” stated Farrell. “…One of the reasons I really love runDisney is the community of people that run road races. Everyone is so supportive…I’m just really grateful for running and the people around me, like my mom and dad.”

The 6th annual Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend is one of four races held at Disneyland Resort and features the only half marathon in the runDisney series without a repeat winner. Approximately 690 runners participating in this year’s race have run all six years.

Over the race weekend, moms and fellow runners celebrated Mother’s Day by earning their wings in the Tinker Bell-inspired half marathon, 10K, 5K and Kids Races. Runners also enjoyed experiencing the latest in fitness apparel, high-tech gadgets and nutritional products at runDisney Health & Fitness Expo.

The Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend is the fifth race in runDisney’s nine-race series that encompasses Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris.

In August, runners can go to “infinity and beyond” in the Pixar-inspired Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, August 31-September 3.

Starting in June, runners can train for upcoming races through the runDisney Virtual Running Shorts Series. The virtual race series invites runners to join one of three 5Ks available throughout the summer by running through their neighborhood, on a treadmill or at a local park. Runners must complete the 3.1 miles within the specific month to receive a uniquely designed medal inspired by the series’ honorary host, Pluto.

Last Man Standing

intercot.com - 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!!
