    Budget airline "fun" (Frontier)

    I've found Frontier (the few times I've flown with them) to be pretty reliable, but once you figure in baggage costs, check-in charges, etc., the fees really add up. The seats are really small too. So caveat emptor, for sure.

    Park reservations

    We’re planning our WDW 50th Anniversary trip for late-September/early-October, while still monitoring “conditions.” All five of us are Disney vets, but none of us had tickets. We had to purchase them to link to our resort reservation in order to make park reservations. We felt a bit...

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

    I’ll suggest Chateau du Sureau, a gorgeous European-style country house in Oakhurst, CA, near the south entrance to Yosemite. While the Chateau itself is luxe personified, with a five-star gourmet destination restaurant (Erna, the owner, was a chef who wanted to build an exclusive inn near her...

    Maui dining

    Hali’imaile General Store is a classic. Extraordinarily fresh, local dining. Bev Gannon’s been doing it right for decades. Upcountry Maui, about ten miles from the airport.

    Those things are really uncomfortable, if efficient. America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Illustrated applied their kitchen- and ingredient-testing skills to evaluating reusable face masks. I purchased some of the Mandala Scrubs masks, and they're really comfortable. I don't use the included filter...

    WDW at Six Flags

    Copy and paste. You might have to reduce the size if the file’s too big.

    Planning in a New World

    It looks like they didn't update the text. Previously, there were three buttons to choose from above the calendar, Ticket Holder, Select Resorts Guest, and Annual Passholder. The calendar availability would change based on the choice. Those buttons aren't there anymore.

    Planning in a New World

    I noticed today on the Disney's Theme Park Reservation Availability webpage that there's no differentiation between Day Guests, Resort Guests, and Annual Passholders. Could it be because of the recent expansion of park hours?

    Somebody Tell a Joke!

    Q: Why did the non-binary prospector head west? A: Because there was gold in them/their hills.

    Reservation/points question

    I’ve been told the space has to be available for an adjustment to be made, and that giving up what I was holding would be a risk if it wasn’t.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better, Nia. What an ordeal this has been for people, some worse than others.

    We had a really nice stay at Coronado, pre-Gran Destino days. Easy parking, good MK bus service (which is generally the only time we use the bus), more "mature" room, etc. I also, through circumstances not exciting enough to share here, ended up at POFQ for an evening, which was very pleasant...

    That was my hope based on OP's date, but I also answered in a general sense of how to choose a resort that's close to where you're going to want to be. Oh well, can't please 'em all.

    We can't have, er, nice things! :RpS_biggrin: Remember the controversy when The Little Mermaid poster art came out that King Triton's castle had similarly "suggestive" towers?

    On the flip side, I’m running out of excuses for saying no to family functions. 🤣

    If he weren't such a cheap-ass by staying at Saratoga Springs (reported elsewhere), he'd have had an uninterrupted vacation. :RpS_biggrin:

    You knew this was coming. “You can’t trespass me if I paid $15,000.” Which begs the question, what's the cut-off amount? He said he spent $15,000 on a Disney World trip. He refused a temperature check and got arrested. By Meryl Kornfield April 3 at 12:53 PM Kelly Sills paid a small fortune for...
