Published: January 26, 2011 at 4:22 PMMr. Niles, I apologize for correcting you in front of everyone but you wrote "Yet, if you can find your way around the walls, most of the rest of Disney's top attractions remain open (Pirates, Indy, Thunder, Subs, etc.) ..."
Obviously what you MEANT to write was "Yet, if you can find your way around the walls, most of the rest of Disney's top attractions remain open (JUNGLE CRUISE, Pirates, Indy, Thunder, Subs, etc.) ..."
Published: January 26, 2011 at 4:39 PMCan anyone find a pattern or order in the list of those attractions on the wait time board? I can't find one.
Published: January 26, 2011 at 4:40 PMI understand the frustrations that can come with construction, but cutting off the loop of CAAdventure seems tragic.
Published: January 26, 2011 at 4:56 PMThere is a slight alphabetizing to the board broken across two columns. Why it's not entirely alphabetized, I don't know. But they should never do it by land for those guests that have no clue where the rides are located.
And never have an automated board ranking them by the wait times. That will deter guests and raise irritation levels.

Published: January 26, 2011 at 5:04 PM10 minute wait time for Space Mountain! WOW!
I think it's funny that the longest wait time is for Autotopia. That and those spinning Dumbo rides are great examples of the rides that you go there with kids..... thinking we are going to one of the highest quality themed parks there is..... and they have all these options, yet they want to ride the simple spinning up and down ride or the cars on a rail!!.....lol.

Published: January 26, 2011 at 5:53 PMWhat are they doing to SplashMountain!!!??? I'm planning to go with a friend on Friday. She hasn't been there in a long time and she wanted to go on Splash Mountain! When will they be done with the construction?

This time last year when I was unemployed, I made 10 trips to the resort in 6 weeks. DL lost money on me buy not spending a dime at the parks. The AP plus parking paid for itself many times over.
Published: January 27, 2011 at 5:27 AMGreat photo tour, Robert. Thank you for sharing. Please keep them coming as the pix will get me through the snowy winter we're having in Missouri!
Published: January 28, 2011 at 10:37 AMI think I understand now why Disney has a great 3 day ticket deal running through March. Was really tempting but all that construction really is a downer.
Published: January 28, 2011 at 9:06 PMThank you for the awesome pictures! We haven't been able to go back to the Disney Resort for a long time! :)
