  1. I was there this past weekend (Friday, Saturday, left Sunday morning) as well. Overall, it was a blast. Lines were great Friday night (as usual) and shorter on Saturday when we compared them to going last October. We did Magnum, TTD, and then Magnum two more times in a half hour starting around 11. The new band on the midway was pretty great. Definitely a nice addition this year. The outdoor haunts were definitely weaker this year. It's probably all related to staffing but I still took note of them: - Bayou was a favorite of ours for the past 3 years and this year a good chunk of ligh
  2. Small update on the Guardians coaster, it looks like the track from Vekoma is inbound based off of these publicly available documents: https://panjiva.com/Walt-Disney-Imagineering/10302364 The installation permit (click "I Acknowledge" to view the permit): http://or.occompt.com/recorder/eagleweb/downloads/20180406836.pdf?parent=DOC2421S6651 Adena is the company that "installed" Slinky and Saucers at DHS. We should see the coaster itself go vertical soon.
  3. I always wear my glasses with a strap on any coaster and certain flats when I'm in any park. To ask me to stick my glasses into a pocket wouldn't go over well with me at all. My wallet and phone go into separate cargo pockets and I know how smashed they get on some rides so i can only imagine how bent up or damaged my glasses would be. But hey if they're willing to give me $300 for a pair of new glasses and drive me home (2 1/2 hours away), sure! I'll wait to see if this becomes a concrete policy before actually flipping a table.
  4. The only truly "bad' Halloweekend is Columbus day weekend.... once the haunts start that'll bring some of the wait down for the rest of the night. Good luck with that. Columbus Saturday typically hits the record, but Saturdays in October are not a fun time. FP+ is needed if you want to ride any big rides and have any sanity left. I've actually been going to Halloweekends the weekend after Columbus day weekend for the past 5 years and this is my first September trip. Saturdays do suck but the way I've done it is to take advantage of the early entry on Saturday and ride until noon since the
  5. I doubt I'll need it. The only truly "bad' Halloweekend is Columbus day weekend. Friday will get us on a bunch of rides, we'll have an hour before it opens on Saturday, and then once the haunts start that'll bring some of the wait down for the rest of the night.
  6. Looks like I'm stuck going the opening Halloweekends this year thanks to my wonky schedule combined with my friends vacations around that time. At the very least, I can expect to get a crap ton of rides in on Friday. Looking forward to SV!
  7. You need to disable the Game DVR/Game bar. It's a feature in Windows 10: https://www.howtogeek.com/273180/how-to-disable-windows-10s-game-dvr-and-game-bar/ I'd just disable everything under "Gaming" in W10. That should stop the pop-up.
  8. I'm more curious to see what will happen with relationships like the one Disney has with Vekoma. That relationship has helped Disney produce some of the best rides we've seen at their parks yet (Expedition Everest, Tron, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, etc) and a change in owners could impact that. We shall see... I think it's safe to add the Guardians coaster to that list as well. We don't know that for sure. Remember, Disney did NOT go with Vekoma for their most recent coaster. Pretty well regarded insiders have confirmed it will be Vekoma. I know it's not official, but unless Disney decide

  11. Rumor has it that what we're looking at will be first used on GotG at Epcot (the ride system obviously, not the layout).
  12. Insiders have said that the plan for AK transportation is looking to be something else. Not monorail, not SkyLiner, not bus so people have been thinking some form of rail/light rail or a peoplemover style system. It would be odd if they didn't expand the SkyLiner system but who knows. They said the plans are pretty far off for AK transit. I know I still want a walking path from AKL to AK.
  13. It's official: https://www.wdwmagic.com/resorts/walt-disney-world-resorts-information/news/14mar2018-disney-to-begin-charging-for-overnight-self-parking-at-its-walt-disney-world-resort-hotels.htm - Disney Value Resorts: $13 per night - Disney Moderate Resorts: $19 per night - Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts: $24 per night - Complimentary standard parking is available to Guests staying at the Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Each campsite provides parking space for one (1) motorized vehicle.
  14. UK ride is rumored as Mary Poppins currently but it's in flux like Coco to the Mexico pavilion. From the sounds of it, it would be equal to a C ticket. So basically, Alice in DL.
  15. Only about half of the actual ride building. Hard to believe but there was going to be more. This has been confirmed by numerous insiders and this site shows what could've been. http://www.imagineeringdisney.com/blog/2012/2/17/rhine-river-cruise-mysteries.html You can add the Main Street Theater to that list as well. Construction equipment was setup and then quietly removed.
