Okay well, on the drive down I read on DATALOUNGE that the covid rate in Florida had dipped dramatically. I could have had some DILF dick from my husband but I was too exhausted and then he got sick. My husband and I are tripple vaxxed and my teen kids are both double vaxxed, so I don't know if it's covid or not.

It was PACKED. My dilf husband made a good point. They keep building more and more hotels, but not so many more parks and stuff. Packed. We have the Disney Vacation Club so we get a pretty nice room. We only went into the parks three days, so bought each of the four of us three one day tickets. Husband said they were like $130 to $140 each.

We were dumb and didn't understand the lighting lane, but then I talked to a helper guy in the park and he was able to add it to our Magic Bands and we got to go on Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise, and the kids also got to go on Big Thunder Mountain.

Did I mention that it was packed? I don't know that we're exactly child-like, but we like the perfected reality of WDW. Cute and pretty and clean (ish).

I grew up in Orange, California, just a few miles away from Disneyland which is in Anaheim. We went there many times in my childhood. Disneyland was kind of my "home town" in a way. I don't go there any more; the last time was when I took my Mom there in 2009 for her 91st birthday. I was disappointed in the changes they have made to the place. It didn't feel like the same place. But my Mom had a good time and definitely enjoyed all the live entertainment. I don't feel any need to go there any more even with all the new stuff that's been built. Hoqever I still enjoy seeing the photos of the old Disneyland (pre-Eisner era) posted in a few photo sharing groups and discussions about the old days of Disneyland.

Which Haunted Mansion is better, Anaheim or Orlando? I haven’t been to the latter, but prefer the grounds & architecture of the former.

by Anonymousreply 33November 9, 2021 8:32 AM

Which parks did you visit, OP?

by Anonymousreply 34November 9, 2021 3:43 PM

The Haunted Mansions are different between the California and Florida parks, and the ones in other Disney parks around the world are also different. You can watch YouTube videos of each one to see the differences. Note that the one in Anaheim has a "holiday overlay" at this time of year, where it is decorated in the theme of "The Nightmare Before Christmas." After the holidays that is taken down, and the attraction returns to its original state.

The Haunted Mansion façade in Disneyland (the house itself) was completed in 1963, while Walt Disney was alive, but just sat there unused, and park guests would walk past it wondering about it. The attraction finally opened on August 9, 1969, almost 3 years after Walt's death. Most of the attraction is not in the façade house but in a show building hidden behind it.

Yes, I am a straight woman. I'm sorry I didn't get to more questions earlier, I don't pay for access to Datalounge (yes, I feel semi guilty about that).

We stayed at Saratoga Springs which is boring but nice. That is a Disney Vacation Club property. It's not theme-y enough but it is nice. It is our "home" resort so often it's the only one we can get. We did get a one-bedroom so technically we could have had sex, but as I said earlier, I was totally exhausted. Husband only put the moves on me once and not with much intensity. One bedroom has a bedroom with a nice king size bed, a complicated bathroom area (lots of doors and a deep tub, separate shower, (each of those comes with a sink) and then a toilet in a room off of the shower room. Kitchen has full size refrigerator and dishwasher and stove and all. Washer and dryer in room. Living room has pull down full or queen bed and then a pull down small bed (smaller than a twin).

We went to Hollywood Studios Monday. Full of Star Wars fanatics. I like Star Wars but am not obsessed. I actually didn't know where the blue milk came from until yesterday, I thought it was just a whatever thing. Yesterday I was watching a marathon and saw where Luke milks that walrus-y creature and then drinks it. The imersiveness of the Star Wars land was cool, but probably would have been more fun with a more Star Wars obsessed group.

~more~ We got the one bedroom because we had points to burn that we didn't use last year. Otherwise that is too many points.

On Tuesday we went to Epcot. We were in the virtual que (?) so we got to go on the Ratatouille ride. That was pretty cool. I would like to do that one again. Test Track was down (that may be the only one we really wanted to go on that we couldn't).

Nothing planned Wednesday so we went to outlets but nothing good. Usually at the Disney outlets (there are two that actually have old stuff from WDW) and the Victoria's Secret Outlet we can buy stuff cheap and then resell it on Ebay to make some of our money back. None of the outlets had anything cheap that would be worth it.

I forgot to say that most of the time the weather was really nice. Not too hot but not cold. No sweatshirt needed until maybe nighttime.

Thursday was Magic Kingdom and it was packed. Unbelievable. My husband has read not to go to MK on Mondays because most people get there on Sunday and then MK is their first stop. Probably true. Some Christmas stuff was up by then. Big tree. Jungle Cruise was decorated. We didn't go to the American Experience in Epcot but we did go to the Hall of Presidents in MK. Yes, crazy Trumpers cheered Trump and booed Biden. It was unbelievable.

I am a formerly small person who has gained some weight, but I am not big in the scheme of things. Like, I easily fit in a bus seat. We took the Disney buses around most places and it was interesting how many people could not really fit into one seat.

I am not the same person as R50.

About It's a Small World...I wouldn't say it smells like a moldy basement, but it has a bit of a chlorine smell. I ruined it for my son years ago when I said that I thought at the end the kids were all supposed to be in Paradise (maybe I said Heaven). So now he can't get the idea of a bunch of dead kids out of his mind.

~~~~~

It rained heavily on Friday. Again no plans. We went to one of the few remaining Ponderosa restaurants.

The only thing really going on was that it's now the WDW 50th anniversary and there is merchandise that people are buying up like crazy. I noticed that there wasn't as much Sassy Tinkerbelle stuff (I actually didn't see any). Remember maybe ten or fifteen years ago when there were Sassy Tinkerbelle tee shirts everywhere? Thankfully that doesn't seem to be a thing anymore.

When I was thinner I would walk around mentally playing "thinner or fatter" in my head. Like, "am I thinner or fatter than that person?" That's not quite as much fun anymore.

There are metal detectors you have to go through when entering Disney Springs (which was formerly known as Downtown Disney). That was both comforting and distressing. My hip replacements did NOT set them off. I did set off the metal detectors going into the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in August, but that's one of the only places that has happened. They're really protecting the Hope Diamond.

The staff was (rightfully) very strict about wearing masks inside buses and any building or building-like structures.

Why is a frau starting threads? Why are you reading a thread started by a frau? (Although I don't consider myself a frau. I'm not a good enough mother, as some of you pointed out.)

A few years back we were in WDW and my hip was really hurting badly. I was in severe pain. (This is after having both hips replaced.) We were in line to get back on a bus to go back to our hotel, but they let someone on a scooter and that person's entire entourage of huge people get on first. I ended up having to stand (we were standing near the driver). I went off on the entire bus and asked them why fat people get priority over someone who is actually in pain, and had real health problems. It didn't go well, the fatties didn't like that lecture. My husband was mad at me because he has a job as a public official and said he would be fired if he had to get into a fist fight defending me. He pushed me kind of behind him (towards the driver). So this time I knew it would be a problem and got a prescription for some Tramadol at the local urgent care before we went. I did have some pain but the Tramadol certainly helped.

My husband was feeling crappy this year and I know that always makes people angrier. He admitted to me that I had been totally correct, and grumbled under his breath when the scooter people and their people got on the buses first. But we got seats on the buses this year, we were lucky in our timing. I also lectured my almost sixteen year old son about the order in which people (who are not obviously handicapped) should be given seats on a bus. Meaning, a sixteen year old boy should give his set to almost anyone else, especially an older person. He ignored me. Is this passe? (I mean a guy giving up his seat for an older person or a child.) My son says it's first come, first serve.

No. But I have learned to like some things. Beers around the world. The German place. Authentic Sushi in Japan. The food is really good in Epcot. I don't mind Hollywood studios either. We are not get up at 6 am all day park people. We usually go out for a late breakfast or get Starbucks. Hang out at the rental house Swim, or layout. We usually go shopping (Mall at Melinniea is really nice, great shopping). We usually hit the parks early afternoon or so. When our friends from Europe come, I can go golfing and the other two go to parks.

R76, you shouldn't have to defend yourself, but I understand you feeling you want to. Some people like Disney Parks and some hate them. It's weird because you really can't tell who is who by looking at them. (By the way, my husband claims he can look at people and know if they are vaxxed or not.) Some are liberals, some are Trumpers. Most people there are some kind of middle class. My husband and I just like to do things on vacation, rather than sitting on a beach. As I said, we like the perfected reality of it. I think a lot of people like it. I wouldn't say it's a chimera (isn't that more like an illusion?). It's more like a type of design. I had a hectic childhood and I guess I'm longing for something. Yes, my mother and my sister look down on WDW, but they are both very angry people. Yes, they think it's trashy. Some of you think I have very bad taste for liking Disney, but I actually have very good taste. I sell tableware on Ebay. I know I have a lot of the pieces mentioned on the Table Top thread in my basement. Things you guys would love to have.

R79, some are certainly trashy (gals with thigh tatoos) but probably not gutter trash. It's too expensive for them. I'm sure there are a lot of Peter Pan types (not just gays, and I probably have those tendencies), but there are really all kinds of types. There are some families that really want to do something that their children will love (and most kids really do love it there). It shouldn't be instead of going to museums or historic sites, those should also happen in decent families.

I mean yes, there are people I wouldn't want to hang out with there, but I bet there are some really cool people there too.

There is a secret Disney club for the very rich. I think that is what R96 is referring to. My husband took a picture of a door marked 33 in the area of Adventure Land. It was not a staff thing because there was a sign that masks must be worn inside.

So, what is Club 33?

by Anonymousreply 113November 11, 2021 3:34 AM

r113 it is a private club in Disneyland. Membership is something like 10K a year and has a like a 20 year wait list to get in. It is the only place in DL you can get alcohol, or used to be, that might have changed. It was Walt's private club. It has listening devices at the tables so Walt could eaves drop on converstations. It is only marked by a door near the blue bayou restaurant with a 33 on it and a buzzer. That 10K just gets you in, you still have to pay for food and drink and it is expensive. You can go as a guest of a member. They are opening more clubs like this at Disney world.

by Anonymousreply 114November 11, 2021 3:40 AM

The 10K is the yearly dues payment. It costs 25-50K for the initial membership.

In addition to the original Disneyland Club 33, all 4 theme parks at Walt Disney World now have a Club 33 lounge. Membership for WDW is approx. $33,000 and annual dues are $15,000 and does not include access to Disneyland's. I think Disneyland's initial fee is now $40K or above.

Tokyo and Shanghai Disneylands also have Club 33s.

Did you see Cruella?

by Anonymousreply 119November 11, 2021 6:15 AM

Was it crowded there OP?

I've been there twice, but never in november.

by Anonymousreply 120November 11, 2021 6:34 AM

R119, I have not seen Cruella (the movie). We didn't go into a park on Sunday the 31st but we walked around The Springs (aka Downtown Disney) a little bit, and there were a few people in (not great) Cruella costumes.

R120, it was extremely crowded. My husband's friend (lives in Tampa) said that Disney is making plans to build another park, but I don't know if this guy really has any special info. Maybe it was on the news in Florida. We like to speculate about what the next park would be. At first when we were in Hollywood Studios it seemed like an entire Star Wars land would be the way to go, since people are crazy for Star Wars. But then after going to Magic Kingdom, it's clear that they need to expand on that somehow.

One time we were in Cinderella's Castle waiting to go upstairs and eat. There's a holding area that gets pretty crowded. (Waiting for expensive meal upstairs where princesses come around to your table to talk to you.) I don't know exactly what happened but I guess one person insulted another person's kid, then two guys were standing really close to each other and one shoved the other. The shoved guy luckily held it together and didn't shove back, or it would have been a total melay (how do you spell?). My husband shoved us into a corner behind him. A Disney cop showed up but it was a small gal. I don't think she would have been able to handle it if things had gotten out of control.

My husband also knew a guy from work who went to the meal there (Cinderella Castle) with his girlfriend. He was being funny and trying to hit on the princesses (like, "what are you doing later?") but said they would NOT break character.

R107, I don't think that is why my husband planned this trip, but yeah, it probably has something to do with why he married me.

R41, I used to work with a woman who was married to a guy who was dropped by a mall Santa as an infant or small child. Apparently he had gotten some kind of cash settlement. I asked her a few times if it had an effect on his day to day life (was there lasting damage?) and she didn't say no. I think they were married when they were fairly young. They divorced and now she's married to a different guy. An alternative type, with long sideburns and all.

R95, I do not have a vlog. Like most of you, I spend much too much of my time on Datalounge and don't get much else done. Maybe I should have live-posted on DL while on trip though. Sorry.~~~~~My family did leave me on a couch in the Grand Floridian after our day in the Magic Kingdom. They were going over to the Polynesian. When they came back one of my kids asked what I was so engrossed in reading on my phone that I hadn't noticed them. I said I was reading Datalounge and that it was now confirmed that Kirk Douglass WAS Natalie Wood's rapist.

I'm sorry OP. I wouldn't go anywhere near Florida for quite some time. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't absolutely love EPCOT, and particularly World Showcase. While it definitely ISN'T like being in England and France (the two I've actually visited), once I get drunk enough I'm able to suspend my disbelief, and I have a blast. I also especially loved Japan, & Mexico.

Good to know OP, Although Magic Kingdom is so overwhelming that is hard to imagine it being expanded; Hollywood Studios could use some extra-space though.

Last time I was there in may/june of 2018 the parks weren't crowded at all, but I had the feeling that they would be in less than three weeks, how was the weather?

I am a relatively short drive to Yosemite. Parents I know in my neighborhood take the family to Disneyland a couple of times a year. Yet, they have never taken the family to Yosemite. Sad. Oh, and they love the section called California Experience. I keep suggesting they try actually experiencing California.

by Anonymousreply 136November 12, 2021 6:37 PM

There is no "section" called California Experience. If you are tryng to make a point, at least get your facts correct.

California Avdenture theme park was originally a park in California themed to California (horrible idea), but now it is pretty much all about Disney's intellectual properties, mostly Pixar and Marvel.

After a terrible initial 10 years, it has become a really nice park. But anyone who is near Yosemite and hasn't ever visited is a trashy moron, if they have the means to travel.

I can't stay away. You lured me back.

R139, I think WDW has become a sort of celebration of our inner id. You can get almost anything you want there. There are bright colors and fantasy and tons of things to eat and drink. Rides, people, nice hotels, TONS of stuff to buy. I'm not making a judgement on whether or not that is good or bad. Maybe it's bad because people don't show much restraint there (I am basically a Protestant and I do believe in restraint), or maybe it's good to get it all out at once and then go back to one's normal life.

I think at the more expensive hotels you do see fewer really obese people.

R134, I love Epcot too (the World Showcase). Now that I'm thinking, I can't remember if the Middle Eastern part was still there. I remember Japan, China I guess...then over to Norway and Mexico (we walked the opposite way. We usually start with Mexico but we mixed it up this time). Maybe my tramadol was really kicking in then.

R120/R135, the weather was beautiful. High 70's to around 80. Really nice for walking around. It poured on Friday but we were wrapping up the trip by then. I'm glad it wasn't crowded when you went. I don't really expect to see it not crowed ever again.

R133, there were no matching shirts involved, but I saw a lot of them. Like, tons of groups with matching shirts. Probably about 50/50 black groups vs. non-black (white and maybe latino) in matching shirts. They all have that Disney font. A lot of people where in full Disney garb. I want to do that, but I just can't get into it. I tried to encourage my family to all buy outfits so we could really go for it next time though. My husband (and I'm not going to answer questions about his body) just won't buy any shirts because he knows he won't wear them. I saw some fairly subtle guy shirts but he just won't do it. My son got a Ratatouille shirt and a Disney shirt at the M&M store, my daughter got a sporty looking WDW hoodie, and I got two tee shirts. Cute Saratoga Springs horsey themed shirt which is too tight and a soft pink one with the Cinderella Castle with a subtle 50 on it (for the 50th anniversary). I'm afraid the Minnie Mouse ears would give me a headache (and you can't really wear them anywhere else).

r140. It is not just for kids. MK probably but Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood studios have some very adult fun In Mexico, inside the building is a tequila tasting bar and excellent restaurant. There is the beer around the world tour. Some really great restaurants all over Epcot. Some good thrill rides, Test track, and Misson Space. Plus there is more to do than just the parks. You can golf go on a deep-sea fishing trip on either coast, I mean it is Florida. It is not just Disney.

A first-time visit to Yosemite should be during the spring, when the famous waterfalls are flowing. April, May or early June, except Memorial Day weekend, which is far too crowded. Later in the year (September is ideal) is better for the high country, such as Tuolumne Meadows part of the park. By then it has generally dried out, far fewer mosquitoes, but the weather is still good. It's possible to visit Yosemite Valley at any time of year, but be prepared for cold as well as stunning beauty in the winter. Since COVID, the park now requires a reservation to visit. And of course all lodging or camping choices, in or out of the park, require reservations, so don't go there without them.

For decades, alcohol was banned in Disneyland. Only the private Club 33 served it, although Walt was known to have imbibed in Scotch while staying in his private apartment above the Fire Station on Main Street in the park.

When Disney's California Adventure (now called just Disney California Adventure) opened in 2001, alcohol was offered in some locations, I forget exactly where in that park. This was Michael Eisner's decision. I suspect it was so that adult guests had some escape from the boringness of the original version of that park (now derisively referred to as DCA 1.0).

When the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land opened in Disneyland in 2019, the new Oga's Cantina in that land began serving alcoholic beverages, breaking with a longstanding tradition in Disneyland. This year, the Blue Bayou restaurant (which is built into the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction) began offering alcoholic beverages too.

R147, we do try to take them to historical and beautiful things too. Just quick one day trips this summer, but a friend took us on a train to D.C. and by car to beautiful Brigantine at the NJ shore. My husband and I took them to NYC but tried to pack too much in. We tried to go to The Museum of Natural History and to the Met, but we didn't really have time. My husband is Mr. Culture, but he was amazed by the Met. So many familiar works of art. He totally wants to go back.

Other years we've gone to Niagara Falls and to see the eclipse of the sun in Nashville. We often meet my brother and his wife at Longwood Gardens in PA for Thanksgiving (they live in Arlington and we live in Central NJ). We've been to Historic Williamsburg (not Busch Gardens!) and the Philadelphia Zoo. Oh yes, and the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia too. I make them go antiquing with me at flea markets sometimes too. We do try to expose them to a lot.

R149, you're right, that was kind of tacky of me. I just noticed it, so I thought I'd comment on it. Black families and groups seem more interested in matching Disney or reunion shirts than other groups. It's just an interesting social phenomenon, but I'm not really making a judgement about it. I thought someone might have some insight into that.
