    FP+ email sent for ride closure

    I don't recall this being discussed, so thought I'd share. I received this email when Dino was down at the start of my FP+ window. I hadn't checked my email, and the ride was up when I used it 8 mins past my window, but thought it was interesting that I could sub other rides (even ones I had...

    CS recommendation between HS and Fantasia Gardens

    On arrival day, DD8 and I are planning on taking the bus from POR to HS and boating over to BW/Swalphin area for mini-golf (back-up plan is to hang at the resort). We may not be arriving at POR until close to 4pm, so figure we'll want to stop for CS somewhere along the way. Any suggestions for...

    "I'm Celebrating", how late is too late?

    I always thought that it would be nice if we could have a birthday trip to Disney, for my daughter. Her birthday is March 19, and there's no way I'm going to Disney during spring break, if I can avoid it. We usually go in May. Turns out that due to scheduling conflicts, we're going earlier...

    Thoughts and prayers for Boston

    I'm lucky, all those I know at or in today's Boston Marathon are home safe. I can't stop thinking about all those who weren't so lucky. I can't imagine waking to such a beautiful day and having your life change in an instant. My hearts goes out to all those affected by yet another senseless...

    Looking for something to do

    My originally planned mother/daughter trip is now a 3 generations of girls trip (my mother is joining us). I decided to shelf my original plans until next year's trip and alter this year's trip a bit to more suit my mother. She hasn't been since '98. After taking some things out (DTD), I now...

    The (FP+) World According to a CM

    I called WDW today to check if the new Disney Visa discount was better than my pin code discount. I had a room only reservation and was going to purchase 6 day base tickets thru UT. A package would have been $34 more than room only w/ UT. I asked the CM if I would be eligible for FP+ with my...

    My version of POP or POR, opinions please

    DD(will be)7 and I are planning a trip for May. Our last two trips have been at a condo at the Sheraton Vistana. As a timeshare it's virtually free, and her father likes the extra space (our first trip as a family was at WL). Since its just the two of us, I thought it would be nice to stay...

    How long to allot for Pick-A-Pearl? Or is it too varied?

    I'd like to do Pick-A-Pearl for my daughter (6yo) on a day when we're heading into WS for a 4:30 ADR at Via Napoli. Our plans are to hang at the pool all day, then head into WS for dinner. Afterwards is either strolling WS or the Boardwalk until 8pm. Ideally, I'd like to pick the pearl prior...

    A 'one night' resort recommendation

    I'm booked in the Sheraton Vistana from April 28-May 5 (Sat. to Sat.). Turns out, we're now flying out on Sunday morning (flights via Sanford airport were $200 cheaper, but flights depart in the am - didn't want to lose a day by flying home in the am, so we're flying out Sunday). That means I...
