Yes, I was going to say I can handle the CMs at Haunted Mansion/Tower of Terror, even Jungle Cruise. Beyond that I start to want to hide my face behind a pillow.... πŸ˜‚ (obviously not talking about staged shows)

Could also be a little bit that "Let's all get our booze on!" tone that seems a little off for Disney, but I guess less so for a convention hotel! I will say that my level of enjoyment with role playing probably goes as far as the CMs on Haunted Mansion or Tower of Terror. Needless to say, even were I a multimillionaire I would be far happier letting the fun be-gin at the Barcelona Bar than exploring the Star Wars Galactic Star Cruiser!

I think they were probably excited to be serving booze again! (I know I'm excited they are :D) Also, it's a "convention resort" - got attract those wild and crazy conference attendees! We all have our cringe-meter. I cringe at CMs role-playing - like I'm dreading ROTR for that very reason. It's weird, I know. πŸ˜‚

You may well be right. It's just that Disney was always so slick and professional and this kind of sits weirdly in that context for me. It reads a lot more like a sign from a neighbourhood bar/restaurant than something I'd expect from a Disney resort. Maybe I have just lost my sense of fun and love of life, though!

Eh, you guys are harsh. It's a bar known for it's gin, signature gin cocktails and build your own gin cocktail. It's punny. :D A lot of "regulars" thought it was cute.

Yes, it's a little thing but yet another hint alongside the Main Street USA DJ that Disney may need to better train the people managing their parks and resorts about what's expected of a world class resort destination with the Disney name attached.

Nor does anyone else. Anyone that claims they know how it will be is lying. Too many unknowns. Disney themselves have a good idea on bookings, but those can change based on COVID numbers.

Okay - our week in late October now has many resorts available, including AoA and Pop! Last month it was booked solid. I don't know what to think about crowds in October!

Many canceled due to the Delta. Pfizer’s news today on kids 5-11 couldn’t have come at a better time for WDW.

I won't get to see the Penguin in person????

I believe that's only going laterally from value to value (assuming availability). If there are no value, then you're paying more to go to a moderate (assuming you can find a room) Previously they just relocated your reservation to another resort of equal or better value. For whatever reason they are not doing that here.

I just cancelled a Pop reservation for the first week of October. So... if anyone was looking, there may now be one available.

It says β€œat no additional charge” though.
