    Coronavirus

    It has actually improved on recent kits, and of course depends on the brand too... but most of the BinaxNOW we have are good until 10/2022 (which is 9 or 10 months from when they were manufactured). The couple kits of QuickVue we got at Walgreens are actually good until 10/2023.

    Coronavirus

    And the BinaxNOW is back in stock again at Walmart online this morning. It seems our local stores have them come back in stock here and there too, but they don't last long. The order from a few days ago did ship and is scheduled to arrive today. Now I am pondering the question of how many...

    Marathon Weekend 2022

    We also have the WI notification app, and have never gotten a notification through it until after our trip a few weeks ago. We had many of the same questions as Anne, and I tried to do some research but there wasn't as much out there as I hoped. My first question in my case (and Anne to), was...

    Touring Strategies for Epcot

    The Fantasia Mini Golf drop off is basically shared with the new Swan Reserve now (same turn-in from the road), so you would not have an issue at any time of day. However, I think you are much better just being dropped off at the Swan itself to save some walking, no benefit in being dropped...

    Touring Strategies for Epcot

    We did a Lyft drop off at The Swan/Dolphin* somewhat recently for a HS Rope Drop, and they don't have any checks at all, so there will never be an issue. Its a little further to walk to Epcot than the others, but the drop off for sure will work. *We picked the Swan as our destination in the...

    Coronavirus

    We have been successful with an online order of these in the past, and they came pretty quickly. But, we have also had a curbside pickup order look like it was good and then later in the day get cancelled on us, and a different curbside order where we got less than we had ordered when we...

    Coronavirus

    Walmart currently has the BinaxNOW Antigen self test in stock and available for shipping, max order of 6. These are typically only available in store, and will likely sell out very quickly. You should also now be able to be reimbursed by your insurance...

    Monorail for EEH?

    One additional thought... even if they happen to run the Epcot monorail at that time, that doesn't necessarily mean the resort loop is still running to get you over to GF. It could be that you have to walk or bus from the TTC to GF in that case... so you might actually be better off with a...

    Monorail for EEH?

    In the past (roughly 2018) we went to Epcot Extra Magic Hours and the Monorail was not running after it completed at 11:00, with signs directing people to the bus instead. I wasn't expecting it at the time, but wouldn't be surprised at all if that was normal.

    Beach Club Standard / Garden / Water View?

    I find this is the best source for room views. https://touringplans.com/hotel_maps/disneys-beach-club-resort https://touringplans.com/hotel_maps/disneys-beach-club-villas I know one common thing discussed about different rooms at BC is the very different balcony sizes, due to the...

    seeing the animals at Animal Kingdom

    I agree that the buses can sometimes be unpredictable, so you never know ... however from AK to AKL is one of the more reliable routes in my opinion (AKL/AKV overall seem to be a little better than some resorts), and is quite a short ride. Otherwise a Lyft/Uber would be quick too if you really...

    best way to watch Harmonious

    You must not be 5'7" :RpS_biggrin: Honestly though, the bright light from the camera was much worse than the shoulder kid, since that we couldn't move or shift a little to get away from that. You can usually move just a little to view around the shoulder kids. We actually did the hip thing...

    best way to watch Harmonious

    We were there only about 15-20 minutes before the show started, and got that spot, since it doesn't "look" like a great spot even though it worked well. I am not sure how fast all the 'regular' front line spots in Italy filled up, but as we walked around the World Showcase to get to this...

    More reopening

    Great news! I hope they have the staff and can actually go through with it this time...both Flying Fish and Jiko previously had re-opening dates planned (in August/Sept) that didn't happen.

    best way to watch Harmonious

    Its even worse when they don't know how to turn off the lighting... (or don't realize its on). This happened to us at Enchantment by the people behind us, so everyone had a bright light shining on the back of their heads around us, and was blinded if we tried to turn around. :RpS_cursing...

    best way to watch Harmonious

    It was really good for our 11 year old (who is 4'5") to be able to stand up by the fence with no one in front of us. Who am I kidding... at 5'7" I am the tallest in our family, so it was good for all of us. :RpS_biggrin:

    best way to watch Harmonious

    We watched from Italy, and although it wasn't straight on to the center, it was pretty good with no trees blocking the firework views (which is an issue in many places). For Epcot fireworks I also try to consider which direction the wind is blowing that night, since somewhere around the World...

    Riviera Resort Recommendations

    Another Riviera tip I thought of... If you are taking a bus back from a park or DS, you can (almost) as easily take the CBR bus and then get off at the Arbua stop and walk to Riviera past the Skyliner station. We have done this a couple times when we got stuck waiting a long time for a bus...

    Riviera Resort Recommendations

    There is no way to walk to either HS or EP from RVA, you would have to cross busy streets and walk in the grass. Walking to the CBR Skyliner station on HS days is for sure beneficial to avoid a transfer, and getting back in line a second time. Heading to Epcot from RVA you will be at an...

    Riviera Resort Recommendations

    Any Standard View room should have at least a partial view of Epcot fireworks. If that is important to you, a request of a higher floor and on the West end of the building. These rooms facing north have the best view, and are closer to the Skyliner too which is a nice bonus. Not sure if you...
