  • [Fun] I am going to Disney World!

    Long story short, I got some unexpected money recently and what turned into a "Why don't you use it to go to Disney World?" joke happens to now be a reality! My mom and I are going from April 9-12. The few times I have gone in the past, we haven't stayed on sight. This time we are staying at the All-Star Movie Resort. I feel SO out of the loop about what is going on at Disney World and a little overwhelmed reading everything. Can someone give me a short run down of what I need to know from when I was last there in 2008?

        Oh I didn't realize that DW had Toy Story Mid-Way Mania. That was my mom's favorite ride at California Adventure. I will have to let her know. Thanks for the info. We saw Captain EO in Paris and I fell asleep half way through! I doubt we will check it out again (unless I need a nap). Thanks for the information. Now I wish I had kept up on the news better. I thought I would be returning to Disneyland before Disney World and neglected to read information about the changes that were made. Oh well...back to reading!

          So cool! That's what I'd probably do with a chunk of money right now, too!

          Well, the New Management is gone from the Tiki Room. And there was great rejoicing!
