How long before outside food is banned entirely from the parks?
Just saw a post on magic about a family of 5 that is "amazed at how much food they will let you bring in". What they listed is not on the parks radar, they are selling the experience which includes eating in the park and paying stupid prices for things.
I really enjoyed Tiffins at Animal Kingdom.
Those days are long gone. Cruising has gotten pricey on their alcohol it makes their all you drink packages look a good value.
Never eaten there so can’t give an opinion.
We didn't do Tiffins but we did do their adjoining bar Nomad. Great ambiance & the drinks and food were top notch.
My last Disney Cruise was in 2013 and I know they've tightened their alcohol policy sometime since then, but at least they still allow you to bring two 750 ml bottles of wine at the beginning and at each port of call.
My friends not too long ago got really creative and got dark bottles of cheap wine and filled it with an assortment of top-shelf 12-year old Scotch. They bought their own wine corker and shrink wrap and were able to successfully pass off 16 bottles of hard liquor as wine amongst the 8 of them. They never had to purchase alcohol on board.
I just saw a 'five minute' posted wait for Despicable Me at 3:00 PM. I don't think I've ever seen a line that short, especially mid afternoon. Must be a pretty dead day in the parks. Transformers & FJ at 10 minutes. Heh, September is over. This is October.
Wednesday is also normally always the slowest day of the week.
sure....but that's really really really slow. A walk on for DM, heck it has a line as soon as the park opens.
Is there still no 3d? Because I wouldn't wait for that ride again unless they put it back. It could account for some of the lesser wait.
It's tough to tell for sure since parks have been so slow, except for a couple of weekends, since mid August. But, prior to that slow period, it appeared DM posted waits were lower than in the past. I'm guessing that others are like you and me and are riding it less, or not at all. I look at these Touring Plans actual and posted wait times just about every day, so it's not like something I only check every now and then.
Just coming here to say... things seem to be back to normal this week.
Adding onto the DM conversation, my Bf and I did not ride this past trip due to the no 3D. As we said earlier, over correction for Universal or just plain cheap. It was some of the best 3D in the park. May ride this spring but eh without the 3D. Coming from someone who adores that franchise and finds the ride cute.
Glad attendance is back to normal. Didn't feel very busy in September for sure.
Rumor has it this is Fall Break in Houston (4th largest city in the country, not sure as to the rest of Texas).
Expect next week to be busy as well, with central Florida schools out for a couple days.
Plus it's a holiday weekend. Many schools in this area of the country now schedule a Fall break in conjunction with it. That weekend in October has been quite busy for the past few years.
This past weekend during the day felt just as crowded as it normally does when I come for HHN, but HHN itself seemed less crowded, but I think that's because the majority of people coming into the gate were only there for Stranger Things, TBH
Last night was the first night all HHN Season where the 2am close actually felt warranted. This week could be the start of the higher crowds.
This is one of those weeks where NY/NJ/eastern PA schools all have a bunch of days off (Rosh Hashana yesterday, Columbus Day on Monday) so a lot of people take Thursday/Friday off for a five day escape to Orlando.
So a lot of schools off--yet IoA still closed at 6 last night. I swear Touring Plans, Tour Guide Mike, et al predict crowds better than the parks do with their actual data.
