    1) toon town has gotten pretty rough since they opened the new star wars land.

    2) go to disneyland, spend the money to get in, shout 'ill go to jail tonight,' and then get choked out. sorry, but i dont get the appeal.

    Haven’t seen it personally but they supposedly have a giant war room of screens with people actively monitoring just about everything. Someone once told me stories about how they stay ahead of the pedos.

    Heard the same. Something like 99.8% of the parks are covered by a camera. But I guess that may be a lie if there was no video of this fight from Disney.

    Taking the kids in late Jan.. 5 nights, MK 2 days, AK 1 day, and Universal 1 day. Gonna stay in the park just not sure where yet. Reservations for Crystal Palace, Kona, Tusker, and Cali Grill. Haven't been in a few years, am I missing anything I should be doing(other than Star Wars, I'll just have to do that next time)?

    Haven't locked that up yet. I'd like to do the Polynesian since it's been remodeled. It's between that, Wilderness Lodge, and Bay Lake Tower. Wife wants the least expensive.

    I think it sounds like you are off to a good start but we likely need some more information before giving you truly solid advice. What does everyone want to do at MK and AK? Go ahead and set an alarm in your calendar to let you know when you're 60 days out so you can book FastPasses. Any interest in any tours? Etc...

    You’ll get varying answers, but I would say the top one is way too much. If you’re doing multiple sit downs, the standard plan might be worth it. You just have to run the numbers. It could save you a few hundred dollars, depending on your plan.

    I’ve never looked at the meal plan, we eat once maybe twice a day at the parks. Normally just a snack or the waffle thing at sleepy hollow/

    I don’t think it’ll ever make sense just running the numbers because of the amount of food you get at quick service when we’re paying cash we’ll split meals and everything... but there is something nice about having it and letting yourself enjoy extra snack credits. Maybe if you did all sit down character meals and spent a lot of snacks and quick service at food and wine fest you could get close to it being a better cost. I do it most times because it’s easy and I know if I don’t I’ll be a cheap ass in the parks

    Edit- one of the Disney sites has a meal calculator that’ll run the numbers for you. Maybe all ears, or mouse dining, just google it

    Don’t understand the question. Show up, put your name down, wait to get called. Or are you asking when is the best time to go to avoid a wait?

    A little bit of both. I didn't know if they had some on-site reservation system or if I could put my name down, go out back for a beer, and they would grab me, kind of like waiting for a regular restaurant. And yeah, when is best to avoid the waits, if there is any time like that?

    Either get their at like 8 or be ready to wait 45 minutes or more. Weekends it can get nuts.

    They will give you a pager and let you know when there is space for you. The place is GA, so waiting just gets you in, it doesn’t get you a table. You could be forced to sit at the bar or share the big surfboard table with other people.

    Who would waste their time and money there except the "POORS" of TMB? Guessing a few of the liberals might frequent that place to feel at home.

    Do I need the 2 park ticket for Universal so we can do Diagon and Hogsmeade? Is Hogwarts Express and Hogsmeade worth the price of the 2 park ticket or is just Diagon alone with the 1 park ticket most of it?

    I've done Hogsmead/IOA a few times without doing Diagon Alley, but I have to say Gringotts might be one of the best themed/immersive rides I've ever been on. Incredible detail with the line queue and it honestly felt like I had stepped into the movie set. If you're any kind of HP fan you have to do it at least once. Not sure what the crowds are like at DA now with Hagrids ride at Hogsmead, but I assume they are taking the bulk of the crowds. I believe I saw 4-6hrs + the first couple weeks for the ride.

    Big time on the cost. I took my mom to Disney/Universal for a week to celebrate her retirement and struggled with the same decision on the 2 park pass, but it was totally worth it. She teared up a little bit walking into Gringotts. We used to read the books together when I was younger and it was a very surreal experience for her.

    If you’re lucky she’ll get selected for the wand experience. My wife randomly got selected out of 50 or so people. She was 28 then and it was the highlight of her trip.

    That and frozen butter beer.
