    *UN*Official 20 Years of Dreams Event Thread

    Our first trip was in 1978. We got our park tickets in advance. We got our tickets for SeaWorld in advance. We reserved Hoop De Doo and the Polynesian Luau in advance. It was all done through our travel agent. That was pretty much all the planning one could do at the time. I don't think we had...

    Sadly, "downtime in the parks" is no longer a thing. It simply doesn't exist anymore. The crowd level during the "slow" days today is similar to what the crowd level used to be on the busy days years ago. And the busy days are now over the top insanely busy. I think this is the single biggest...

    You bet I did. I was a Disney nerd back then too. I watched every TV show and studied every brochure and guide we got from our travel agent and anything else I could get my hands on. I knew that park (there was only one at the time) inside and out before we stepped off the plane in Orlando.

    Where has Charles been ?

    Exactly. I haven’t listened to those shows but my wife is lactose intolerant. Pretty much everything in restaurants has dairy from the steak (butter) to the fried chicken (buttermilk) to the vegetables (butter) to dessert contains dairy. She just takes plenty of lactase pills and she’s generally...

    I agree completely. So many people show up at WDW as if they were showing up at their local amusement park. They do no research and simply don't understand how massive and how crowded WDW is. Then they're disappointed with the experience. We go knowing full well what we're doing and what our...

    That's exactly my point though. You DON'T have to plan your entire trip in advance. We go to WDW every year at least once and sometimes twice, sometimes for 2 weeks at a time. We make NO ADRs. We make very few if any FPs in advance. And we have a great time. The whole "you have to have a...

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    Wouldn't that likely affect other websites? Could there be malware that ONLY affects the DIS? That seems odd.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    There certainly doesn't seem to be. Perhaps we should all start emailing them. Podcast@disunplugged.com. Maybe that will get their attention. I was thinking of doing that.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    Okay, now things are really getting out of hand. I can no longer use the site on mobile but now I've started having issues on my desktop AND I HAVE an ad blocker on there. I was just in the middle of reading a thread, not clicking on anything. Not even touching the computer. And it suddenly...

    Can you share a place you couldnt wait to eat but was a huge letdown

    You know, this is actually a great point. The same could really be said about 50's Prime Time. Both depend largely on nostalgia. That made sense in 1989. Thirty years later, do those concepts still work? A high percentage of guests today aren't old enough to have nostalgia about those things...

    Welcome to the podcast family. I also listen, not watch. I use the podcast app on my iPhone.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    I sure wish someone from the DIS actually read and responded to the Tech Support forum.

    Wait a minute. Now I'm upset that all I'm getting is that I've won a Walmart gift card.

    Anyone getting insane amounts of pop ups?

    I'm done. I could not get to the site on my phone this morning after multiple attempts. Desktop/laptop only for me from now on until they fix this.

    Close rental communities

    We have rented a few times in Crestwynd Bay which borders Windsor Hills. I think it's all townhouses. More of a residential feel. I got the feeling there were more full-time residents there. It is gated and has a community pool but it's just a plain rectangular pool, nothing fancy. Not as...

    I agree that those are the best shows around. We do Nemo pretty much every trip and Lion King at least every other. They aren't hard to get FPs for typically so we'll just do those when we're there.

    Yep. They're back for me too :( Guys, figure this out. It IS a problem ONLY with THIS site! Not a browser issue. Not a device issue.

    Are we the only ones in this group who don't plan out every moment of our trip? No ADRs. Probably no FPs. Not a clue which parks we will be in which days. I know that a lot of you enjoy the whole spreadsheet and planning thing but it's not for us. We are fortunate in that we get to go to Disney...

    Backup Host

    I only listen to the show and I would disagree. It's very entertaining and funny when things are getting messed up even though I can't see what's happening.
