    If you ever get a chance to attend one of the launch parties behind the scenes, it's worth it.

    So we're staying at a Disney property end of March, and they give you a 60-day window to book restaurants. Apparently the reservation window online opens every day at like 6 AM, which meant my wife legit woke up at 5:30 and signed on to Disney to make reservations like she was logging into work. We tried to get Space 220, but it probably filled up immediately. We did manage to get spots at Jiko, Ohana, Cape May cafe and a few other places but this whole reservation system is crazy.

    One thing I ran into while staying on property in the fall is that if you wanted to get something to eat at a resort restaurant off schedule or without a reservation, you might be SOL, I guess due to staffing issues.

    Absolutely. Had no idea what to expect but that reveal is really great. The motion ride was fun too. Well done. Saw lots 9f trash people being a holes to people working and trying to do their job. Before I noticed I was wondering why so many people working the attractions were surly. I assumed Florida. Turns out it was earned in response to floridians.

    The media embargo for initial reviews of the Star Wars Hotel is over, so reviews are trickling out.

    And then there's stuff like this.

    Beach/Yacht Club still has the best pool [for kids], right?

    Never been to those, but the Port Orleans Riverside pool is fantastic for kids and the poolside activities are a lot of fun.

    You go to the park at opening and you leave at closing. There is no time for pool.


    We did hit the pools on the day we came in and the Animal Kingdom and Hollywood days, as well as the day we left.

    My kids don't tire. They fun through the pain. Although last time we went the 3yo did fall asleep in the kilimanjaro safari line and slept through the entire ride.

    planning next Jan, assuming the world isn't consumed in nuclear fire by then. I guess we'll see how it goes for an almost 7 and 3 yr old

    Correct. And the Boardwalk hotels are in a great location next to Hollywood Studios and Epcot Center.

    yeah, as a kid our family always stayed at BC b/c of the back entrance to Epcot. Just wondered if it was holding up.

    doesn't everyone just take out a mortgage to go to Disney?

    Idk man you’ll be at the park for like an hour then.

    With an almost 3 and almost 5 yo, we brought a double stroller so they didn’t have to walk and made use of the park hours. Our only pool time was when the then-almost 3yo got an ear infection one day and we sorta had to leave the park. Even then she made it 4 hrs.

    With the age range we had the skyliner was practically the best part of the visit. We stayed at the sister “resort” motel, art of animation or something.

    Yeah ours loved it. We had the double stroller as well and the 3yo napped in it a couple times.
