    I will never whine about the Cardinals not winning. We've been very spoiled by them. But I agree that is a pretty long drought for Minnesota in the "big four" sports. I'll happily cheer them on in future playoffs! :banana: I'd say so! The team won the WNBA title in 2011, 2013, 2015...

    Okay, my last post about the Blues. The team's theme song this year was Laura Branigan's "Gloria" (too long a story to relate here as to why). So when the Blues won the championship the other night, St. Louis' main outdoor theater venue was in the middle of "Guys & Dolls". At intermission...

    Well, I can understand that. Boston fans have had a long drought of about 4 months since it's last championship parade! :)

    Corinne...you are so gracious! We are beyond excited in the St. Louis area and I'm happy to report that the all-night street celebrations didn't result in any issues. At this point in my life, I just watched them on television. :)

    To support your comments, I've read on these boards a few times that the DVD players have been removed from the rooms but are available upon request. Kathy...wow, that's a long drought! Here's hoping that you are able to break the dastardly Curse of the Room Request!

    Too funny! Not sure what other real estate is available, but I do think Brazil was a good choice since South America is unrepresented at EPCOT. And of course, it will give many tour groups a chance to visit home! :) I guess it will be like Japan or Italy where they just have some...

    By the way, here's the link to the story about FastPass tier changes at DHS: FastPass Tiers Changing at DHS I agree that longer term Disney will look to monetize the FP+ system as Universal has done. It must kill them to sit around that table and think "how did we ever make FastPass a FREE...

    Sleepy...glad to hear that your recovery is progressing well, and that your tennis squad had a successful year. That young lady who won state sounds like a great individual in addition to having a super talent for tennis! I did see this, and it is really undermining the entire benefit of the...

    Funny that you should relate this story today. Yesterday I was approached by a friend and his wife who indicated they are thinking about a two-day trip to WDW in a couple of weeks! And they've never been to WDW. They knew I was a WDW "expert" and were looking for some tips. I was trying to...

    Well of course we missed you! And there are some Groupies at WDW during your trip dates in December, so I'm sure you can get together with them. And I love the name of the school. I wonder if tuition is higher if you have a classroom on the "Theme Park View" side of the building? :)

    I can't really argue with her. Roaring Fork is okay, but it is no longer one of the best CS dining options at a DVC resort as I used to think that it was. When we were at GP a few weeks ago, they definitely had the cheesy brisket as I ordered it twice during our trip. In fact, I'd say that...

    On behalf of Mrs. Granny, I thank all of you for the birthday wishes. We enjoyed a nice day at our local zoo to celebrate. :)

    BWV View question

    These are two different questions. As for whether I think those rooms should be considered boardwalk view, my response is yes. The view from the balcony (when standing) is of the boardwalk, Crescent Lake and EPCOT with the best view of Illuminations or its replacement. As for whether I...

    I just use the email option on the member site. Or you can call member services, but either way they just put the request into the system. There's no "calling the room assigner" or "faxing requests" type of a thing. VWL is very easy as far as requests...pretty much which side of the resort...

    We were put with other couples/families. For us it was about 9 people total but I think they may take more. With you having 6 guests I would think that you would have no more than 6 other guests with you on the tour...but I have no definitive knowledge of their cut offs on number of people. I...

    No more pool hopping at Grand Floridian

    I hadn't looked at pool hopping restrictions for a long time, and I was surprised to find this on the member site: Pool hopping is not available at the following pools—with no exceptions to this policy: Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort – Bay Cove Pool Disney's Art of Animation...
