    The Magic Kingdom's iconic nighttime fireworks show, "Wishes", will be ending it's nearly 15 year run on May 11th. It will be replaced by a new fireworks and laser projection show titled "Happily Ever After", which is set to debut the very next night, May 12th. So if you want to see it again, plan your next trip soon.

    Price increase looks to be definitely happening tomorrow for AP. Possible 3-5% increase on AP prices. No word on monthly payments or if any APs will include MaxPass.

    Edit - price increase confirmed:

    Single day prices going up as well. Signature and Signature plus remain the same price and parking goes up to $20.

    Edit - they just updated the article they are NOT getting rid of monthly payments.

    Rumor: Gondola system possibly coming to Disney World resort; connecting Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Art of Animation resort, and Caribbean Beach resort.

    Disney World has released their summer resort discount rates. Florida residents and/or annual passholders can save up to 25% on select nights throughout the summer. The value resorts are around $85~ a night. Not bad if you can stomach going during the summer months.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    While I did enjoy that ride as a kid in Magic Kingdom, even I remember the wait time on that shit was fucking awful.

    I wish they would dump more money into finally connecting all the parks via monorail. (Disneyland, too.)

    Apparently it was in the works for most of the late 90s, and then 9/11 happened and Disney took a major hit, and the cost to expand the monorail system kept getting bigger and bigger each year. It's just not economically feasible at this point.

    I have no idea how they are going to execute this, but they are saying your actions in attractions at the Star Wars land expansion will have consequences for the rest of your experience in the area.

    Went to DL on Monday for the last time with our Annual Passes. Looking forward to the DW switch, but it's going to be really fucking werid to not be going like every month. In-laws just went to DW two weeks ago. I warned them that they should go for two weeks, but they like to live large and did one week and stayed at the contemporary. The mom said while the kids had fun she was never going again because she was so exhausted. Solidifying my need to go for two weeks and stay someplace cheap.

    Seriously, do 7-8 nights with a built in break day. And stay on site, just look at a moderate or value resort when they have a free dining package. Being able to stay onsite and not have to deal with daily parking fee's and being able to book fast passes 60 days out is worth the extra 20-50 a night you'll spend versus staying off site at disneyworld.

    Annual pass holders (which I believe Ksandra will be) don't have to pay for parking. That being said I'd still recommend staying on site. The fall promos will probably be announced next month, and the summer promos right now are pretty crazy. Can get a room at the All Stars (which is Disney's bottom of the barrel, to be fair) for $70 a night. The moderates are around $150-170 a night. Hell even the Grand Floridian is only around $350 a night during this promo period.

    Splash Mountain in Florida is going to be closed for refurbishment from August 28th - November 16th. Puts a damper on my planned September trip I dunno why they don't wait til winter to refurbish a water ride though.

    The water parks are open year-round, and Disney World is absolutely packed during the holiday season. There are definitely more people coming in late November up through New Years than there are after Labor Day weekend until Thanksgiving, so it makes sense that there'd be refurbishment going on during that down-time.

    I will admit it does seem kind of strange that they're not waiting until after Labor Day weekend to close it for refurbishment though, hahaha.
