    Problematic Roller Coasters

    I found a description of the rolling (technically, "overlapping") blocks on MF: https://coasterbuzz.com/Forums/Topic/block-sections-on-rides-with-no-mcbs

    Problematic Roller Coasters

    Yeah, this one learned some lessons the hard way by being first. For example, IIRC when the ride sets up (a train has to be held in a block because the next block is still occupied) the trains have to be advanced manually. Again IIRC, the ride is "sandbagged" early, using longer dispatch...

    Park reservations

    Buy a single-day ticket for that date, attach it to a phantom MDE account, and use that to search. Yes, it ties up $120 or so, but assuming you will go back again someday, you can use the value of that ticket for another one later.

    Advice on park reservations this fall!

    Five mornings out of ten at Studios feels like serious overkill to me.

    Coronavirus

    Thanks, this was helpful. I don't take the same comfort from the low rate, because the denominator is large, and so the numerator is too. So, it's not that I was personally worried about dying. It's that I am deeply hurt and troubled by the tragedy of so many people who did---many of whom would...

    Welcome to my ignore list. The rest of what I'd like to tell you is inappropriate for This Website, let alone polite company.

    Coronavirus

    I did not recall the post that way, so I went back and re-read it with your observation in mind. On re-reading it, it is still my opinion that while the thread in that moment in time was centered on post-vaccination behavior, that poster was minimizing the impact of the virus pre-vaccine. So I...

    Hey Locals: OFF PROP Good Eats?

    If there is a chain restaurant in the US with two or more locations, one of them will be within spitting distance of WDW's borders. I'm not sure if that's the good news or the bad news.

    Park Hopper Plus

    If I'm reading this right, 1-day tickets are only good for one day, period. https://www.mousesavers.com/regular-walt-disney-world-ticket-prices/#validity

    Park reservations

    Maybe just keep an eye on the week you have in mind. If MK starts disappearing that will make your decision for you. It probably won't happen all at once.

    50th Birthday Trip Planning - 5/26 to 5/31

    I just booked a week in the Wasatch mountains in Utah for mid-June. Not nearly as splurgy, but we've been trying to do more outdoor things even post-vaccination. You can find some high-touch resorts in the Rockies. We stayed at this one for a family reunion when the kids were in grade school...

    Park reservations

    If you are thinking Epcot, you've got maybe up until the day of. If you are thinking Studios, I would do it ASAP. AK is more like Epcot, but a little less so. MK is booked for some dates in June. If anything, I think August might end up booking faster than June did; there will be more people...
