LOVE this show!! I go every time I visit Disney!! Just went on 10/12/2016 and my FAVORITE SIX BITS was performing!! He's the main reason "I" go, and hope the same guy plays him every time! I was literally crying from laughing so hard!!!
The food is amazing and waiters and waitresses are great! Great time!!
The cast is very friendly and even took pictures with us before they started their next show!!!!
As a Florida resident, I have stayed at Fort Wilderness campground a couple times a year for the past 8 years. My latest trip, Oct 20 to Oct 23 was a disappointment. We noticed a general lack of security in the park - and, we were unlucky - a party trailer was parked - next to us. On the Thursday that we arrived, the party went on until 1:00 am.....We are talking about 15 to 20 adults at this site in the 800 loop that were yelling and laughing loudly...The next night was the same. What happened to this being a family experience? At the price that you pay for camping there - you would assume that someone from Disney would be monitoring the campground to make sure folks behave. Don't know if we will be back.
While my boyfriend and I stayed here we had a camper. We got a great spot and were super close to the bus stop. However, unless you have a golf cart or bikes it is a haul. Like I mean 20-25 minute walks. BOOK YOUR GOLF CARTS EARLY. Both times we have been there, they have all been sold out. Fortunately, we had bikes so it wasn't bad. I was in a walking boot and had to bike with it on, but it is what it is. Live and Learn. Something good about the bikes, although, is that there is super close parking for them to get on the boat to MK. Same way with golf carts. Loved that.
Unfortunately, the buses take forever it seems like. We usually rode over to MK and then took the monorail to GF and rode a bus from there. It seemed much faster. We loved Trails End, the only home-like food in WDW (granted we are from KY). Best on property food hands down. It's also a bike ride away from FWL. Nice, relaxing, and it gives you a break from the parks. Stop and see the horse stables. There's something really neat inside.
To sum it all up, the Campsites are nice. The cabins look okay, but it is clean and well put together. Bathhouses are wonderful-- definitely better than I thought they would be. If you have a camper, RV, or just love camping, stay here. It's a good value and location.
I'm a huge evil queen fan so this was a must do for me. I went with my 12 y/o granddaughter, my 9 y/o niece, sister, and brother in law. We all had a great time. The set up to see the villains is elaborate and I love having a set time to see the villains so no spending half the night standing in line. Loved that we were able to take pics with or without the photopass person both when the villains were there as well as in their sets when they were off stage. The stage/floor shows were fun as was the dancing. Add the unlimited food and drink (including sodas, water, or alcoholic signature drinks) and it was well worth the money.
Recently we had dinner at Art Smith's Homecoming (Disney Springs, The Landings) and had the most fantastic culinary experience. The food and presentation was beyond words. Our servers were Autumn and Marissa which provided us with GREAT service and offered an education into Art Smith and how his restaurant came to be. We asked many questions and they had great answers for all our inquires. They spent time with us and made us feel like home. We recommend Art's restaurant to everyone who wants a culinary experience not to forget. Thank you.
My husband and I tried this place for the first time to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It was busy so we got two seats at the bar and the service was outstanding from the moment we sat down. The staff gave us a feeling of true professionals who took great pride in their work. The food was phenomenal. I mean, so good, it made me angry. I was asked if I liked my meal and I told him that the chef should be put in jail. It's not fair to give people an experience as outstanding as this. I highly recommend this place and if you don't care for seafood there are other options on the menu. Also, the Abracadabar is adjacent to the restaurant and has a great vibe if you need to kill some time waiting for a table. We will be going back soon! Also, they accept tables in wonderland.
This resort is a classical beauty! I was convinced the Polynesian would always be my number one favorite resort and remain unchallenged...........and then we stayed at the GF. The lobby is spectacular and the resort manages to remain cozy amongst all the opulence. I only wish they would complete a walkway to the Magic Kingdom. It would require a bridge over a small canal but would be a great amenity for guests. The service has consistently been outstanding over the years.
This is one of my favorite places to stay on Disney property. The location is excellent and it is within walking distance of two parks. Also, it affords some peaceful time if you want to put your toes in the sand on the beach or take a stroll around the lake. The pool is wonderful and the poolside bar is a great place to watch a game. There are so many great options for dining within a short walk or boat ride.
My wife and I just went to the Halloween Party at Disneyworld. We had a great time.
The Halloween party is a separate, ticketed event held at the Magic Kingdom of Disney World. It officially starts around 7 pm, though people with tickets for it are allowed in around 4 pm. The whole mainstreet area is lined with mickey jack-o-lanterns and other Halloween décor. Starting at 7 pm the lighting on all the buildings on mainstreet switches to Halloween colors.
We went the end of September . About a third of the adults, and at least half the kids there were in costumes. Many of the costumes were amazing. Trick or Treat stations are scattered throughout the park. All guests are able to trick or treat for candy.
The Halloween Parade, called the "Boo To You Parade", was typical Disney. There were several cool Halloween floats, including one from the haunted mansion which seemed to glow in the dark . There also were ghost dancers that were a lot of fun to watch.
There was a show in front of the castle which starred the characters from the movie "Hocus Pocus". There were cameos from classical Disney villains. The highpoint of the show was a rendition of " I Put a Spell On You", which was very well done. A note to parents: We enjoyed this show quite a bit, however it was geared more to adults than kids.
The Halloween fireworks show was great. The fireworks were perfectly synchronized to music from the Haunted Mansion and several Disney movies.
Most of the Park Rides remain open during the Halloween Party. We didn't go to many of them simply because there wasn't enough time. However, we did go thru the haunted mansion, which was fantastic. After the Halloween Party officially begins at 7, then all the workers in the mansion wear zombie type makeup which makes the atmosphere perfect for a haunted house.
One suggestion I have to those planning on going to this event has to do with souvenir shopping. We were surprised that the Park Stores had some, however didn't have a lot of Halloween Party Souvenirs. The Disney Stores at Disney Springs had a very nice selection of Halloween Party souvenirs. I'd recommend anybody interested in getting souvenirs of the event go to Disney springs.
