not brand-new information, as it's been bouncing around the
web and newsgroups for a few days now, but I thought I'd mention
the fact that the Crystal Palace restaurant (where Winnie-the-Pooh
and his friends are available for character meals at breakfast,
lunch, and dinner) will be undergoing building repairs during
the later part of this year.
Mike Scopa, who writes our Scoping
the Parks trip planning column, contacted Walt Disney
World through their WDW-DINE phone number and was told:
- The Crystal Palace
will be closed between July 29th and December 15th.
- Starting in August
(no date has yet been announced), character breakfasts and
lunches will be held with Pooh and Friends at Tony's Town
- Price will be the
same as it was for the Crystal Palace.
- Current plans are
for dinner at Tony's to NOT be a character meal!
Mike adds, "I think
these character meals may (notice "may") not include
a buffet meal as was held at the Crystal Palace but instead
may include a pre-plated meal in which each guest receives
their meal on a plate." He goes on to add that
it's still, "all you can eat. Guests may ask their servers
for seconds and more."
we get into other email, I have a whole bunch of reader responses
to previous "Notes From the World" questions and
Hi Brian, I just finished reading
your update dated today (June 3rd), and I just wanted to
add a thought for Leslie. You might have wanted to suggest
that Leslie go to either Downtown Disney Marketplace or
one of the resorts to soak up some atmosphere. Either option
is free, and Leslie can still be in the middle of Disney
Magic. Keep up the good work.

Good morning Brian,
In response to the reader concerning
taking the train to the Orlando area, I have done it twice,
and both times had a wonderful trip.
On both trips I booked a berth from
NYC to Orlando. The trip took twenty-four hours each way,
and provided a wonderful opportunity to relax before and
after the trip. However, as with any modus transportation,
delays can happen. One time on a non Disney trip, our train
sat on the tracks for seven hours. So, if you go by train,
On my two trips to WDW, I booked
the actually stay on Disney property for the day after I
was supposed to arrive. This way, if we were on schedule,
then I just called, and in both instances the Disney hotels
could squeeze me in.
The Amtrak service was pretty decent.
Getting a private room also mean my meals in the dining
car were paid for, as well as having snacks and drinks throughout
the journey. The little television set in the room was a
nice touch, as they played movies all the way down there.
Well, except, of course, at night. Also, having a private
shower was a real plus.
I usually fly wherever I go, but
if you have the time and want to spend more on a private
room on the train, I highly recommend the investment.
One last important thing... Prepare
in advance if you are going to rent a car or take transport
to WDW. You will have to pay for a cab to a car rental office,
or a cab to Disney.
Brian, As always I enjoy reading
your column, I was reading about the questions about the
transportation and thought I would add my 2 cents.
We went on a last minute trip over
the Memorial day weekend, as expected the resorts were booked
and we had to stay offsite. We haven't done in a long time
but decided it would be a "retro" trip and have
fun anyway. The parks were mobbed of course but I have to
tell you that the staff levels were high, the rides were
running at capacity and waits were not much longer than
slower times when staffing is low. Disney does it best when
the parks are full. The parks are beautiful and the staff
is ready for the summer season, they are definitely not
going downhill. Slower seasons are when they do the maintenance
and such as you know and I guess misleads some people to
believe the place is falling apart. I'm happy to report
the work has been for the most part taken care of and the
whole resort is in tip-top shape.
Saturday the Magic Kingdom was open
until 11:00pm and the rides, restaurants and shops were
full even beyond 11:00, they were obviously making a profit
during these hours.
I just don't understand why Disney
would not take advantage of the revenue these hours provided
for them. There's no place more beautiful than the Magic
Kingdom at night and I really miss the later hours.
As for the transportation issue we
had to drive our own car and park in the lots because we
were offsite. The tram announcer said that ALL transportation
was available for ALL guests with a ticket, not just resort
guests. I don't know if this is a recent thing or not, I
remember when you got a separate transportation
ticket when staying at a resort and they actually asked
to see them at boarding. Although they have changed the
bus routes to make it more difficult for offsite guests
to clog up the bus routes, such as the Downtown Disney busses
not going directly to any park to keep people from parking
for free in their lots and
the using the busses to get to a park.
You would have to take at least two
busses to get anywhere and that is time consuming.
Speaking of time consuming, I know
there has been a lot of debate about the advantages of staying
onsite now that there are no Early Entry days. In the time
it took us to just get to our car in the main lot we would
have been arriving at our resort were we staying onsite,
and that to me is a huge perk. The lines for the express
monorail to get to the Ticket and Transportation Center
were staggering! Then another long line for the parking
lot Tram and finally getting down SR192, even with most
of the construction finished is nightmarish... People were
not sure where their hotel is or trying to find a restaurant
still serving food (futile) makes this a poor way to end
a good day. We could have been at the resort, gotten something
decent to eat and been in the pool by the time we got back
to the dump we stayed in. No more "retro" trips
for us, if I don't get a resort I'm not going. Which may
mean I won't be back until the end of summer but I can wait.
and I responded:
Thanks for the great note, Andy.
Regarding the availability of WDW transportation to offsite
guests... again, that is true for holders of park hoppers,
but not for holders of one-day tickets.
Thank you Brian for answering "Bob's"
note, "Bob writes: Brian, I was checking out eBay today
and saw something so shocking I just had to let all the
WDW Disney planning sites I know. There was an auction for
the Cinderella breakfast!"
I felt your answer was direct and
informative. In a professional manner you stated WDW new
policy for CRT breakfast and why the change was needed.
Thank you for not mentioning the web site wars that are
still raging on this matter.
And I responded:
Thanks, Sandy. I try to be reasonable... really, I do.
Brian, Just an update on DVC prices.
I just bought into the Beach Club Villas and they were charging
$75 a point. There was supposed to be a price increase on
2 June to $80 or $85 a point. Since you had someone asking
in today's (June 3rd) update I just wanted to pass it along.
Heard they may have put off the increase until July 1st,
but they may have been for selected states (I know they
were having problems getting approval to sell BCV in some
states like New York).
Thanks again for all your work and
efforts, we've been reading your stuff since '97 and use
it for every trip we take. . . and will continue as we take
our DVC trips now!!!
Keep up the good work!
and in an follow-up, Jeff writes:
Brian, Just to give you the right
price, it is an increase to $80 a point, but again I keep
seeing people on another board saying there has been a delay
in that increase. Not sure what the details since we locked
in a few weeks ago.
Brian - your reader inquired about
WDW resort discounts for the time period after August 24.
Discounts codes are now out through October 2nd (I got my
info at mousesavers.com) - I just booked 6 nights (October
1-7) using the codes and saved quite a bit. We are resort
hopping but still managed to get the discount for all but
one night by being flexible. I originally wanted 2 nights
each (in this order) at Wilderness Lodge, Yacht Club &
Animal Kingdom Lodge. By switching to 1 night each at Wilderness
Lodge and Animal Kingdom Lodge, we maximized the discount
(Wilderness Lodge on the 1st is discounted, and our entire
stay at Yacht Club is at the discounted rate since we check
in on that rate on the 2nd). For the last night, I am paying
rack rate for a savannah view at Animal Kingdom Lodge but
overall saved several hundred dollars over what we would
have spent without the discount codes (so I didn't mind
the "splurge" at the end). If we hadn't switched
resorts after the 2nd, our whole stay would have been discounted.
Thanks for the site! I especially
appreciate your integrity in terms of not encouraging the
"skirting" of rules when certain issues come up.
and I responded:
Thanks, Elizabeth. I'm glad to hear that early Fall is

Rick shares this information:
Brian, I haven’t written in awhile,
but there are two items in today’s update that I wanted
to comment on. First, you mentioned that Orlando is not
known for its public transportation but the Lynx system
was recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation
as the best public transportation system in the country
back in 2000. They must be doing SOMETHING right!
The other item has to do with babysitting
at the Disney resorts. Going back twenty years or so to
when my parents used this service for me, Disney actually
used outside babysitting services that had been checked
out and approved by them. At least at that point, a check
mark in the babysitting column didn’t mean day care—it meant
in-room babysitting referrals.
To which I answered:
Thanks for the note, Rick.
Lynx is, indeed, a great system. However, (and feel free
to correct me if I'm showing a lot of ignorance here) although
it's great for convention goers and folks staying around
the International Drive area, it's pert near useless for
And following up, Rick writes:
I will admit that I have never personally
ridden the Lynx—I’m just going by that award they won. I
just checked the Lynx website and they seem to have several
routes that run to Disney. Depending on where one stays,
they may have to transfer at a large bus center, but if
budget is more important than convenience it still seems
like a good option.
Regarding conditions at the Magic
Kingdom, Stephanie writes back:
Hello again Brian!
I just wanted to write again to defend
myself against Jason's comment that you have been a victim
of a "trollish poster" because of my past letter.
I assure you that it is not the case. The conditions I described
are exactly as I perceived them to be on the day of my visit,
yes, bras and all :)
I am glad that Jason had a different
experience than I did, and it goes to the fact, as Cynthia
pointed out in a different note, that perhaps it was just
an exceptionally busy day during my visit. In any case,
it does illustrate the need for Disney to rethink their
cutbacks if they are not able to keep up with these
unexpected crowd surges. If Jason
had a different experience, I am glad to hear it. I just
wish he could have told us about it without calling my honesty
On another note, I did not mention
previously, and perhaps I should have, that the other parks,
especially MGM were very clean and did not have any of the
problems that I noticed at the MK. My earlier observations
related to the Magic Kingdom only.
Thanks again for your wonderful site!
Brian, I wanted to comment on Tina's
revelations in the latest Notes (6/3). She mentioned that
the MK was closed early at 6:00pm for three consecutive
days due to a private party. I have to say that I would
be very upset if this happened to me. I had a similar experience
last December when the Studios was closed early on December
5 for the 100 years celebration press event. While I wasn't
happy about this, I was able to plan around it and dealt
with it. But three consecutive days? That is going too far!
People pay far too much money to
be sold out like that. I understand Disney probably made
a healthy bit of money, but it isn't fair to those paying
the big bucks to be at - and more importantly IN - Walt
Disney World! I am curious to know how often this occurs
and when the information is released to the public! I'll
bet such arrangements are made way ahead of time, but the
public rarely knows more than a month out the schedules
for the parks, so we aren't told. It would be a big reason
for me to change my plans if I knew ahead of time that a
park was to be closed early like this during my stay.
Sorry to rant but this one got to
I agree, Bill. I would come unglued if that happened to

on Disney's policy on such events?)
I just booked a package through the

we could get signed up for

Thus, this is yet another benefit available to those who

Thanks, Patrick. I'll share that additional info soon.
(Editor's Note: There still seems to be some confusion
on who, exactly, is eligible to use the IllumiNations viewing
area. My answer is, stop at Guest Relations early
in the morning and drop all of your membership cards on
the counter and ask which one (AAA, Disney Club, Disney
Vacation Club, American Express, or your local library card)
will get you admission. You might just be rewarded
for asking the question... Although the next two reader
notes might squash those hopes for the next few months.)
Hi Brian, I had a fantastic trip
to WDW this weekend! Just wanted to let you know that according
to Guest Relations, the special viewing area for IllumiNations
has been discontinued.
Hi Brian, I just got back from a
trip to WDW (5/25 - 6/1) and wanted to give you some feedback
related to your last Notes update (6/3).
First, the AP viewing area for Illuminations
is definitely no longer available. I asked at the EPCOT
AP lounge and they said that the perk had been discontinued
at least for the summer. They said that this is because
the site is used so much during the summer for other groups/companies.
Second, about the condition of the
parks, I'd have to say that in general things are not as
bad as some have said, but do seem to be on a downward trend.
- We saw vomit on the Tomorrowland
Transit Authority (don't ask me how you throw up on that
ride :-) that had not been cleaned up, despite the fact
that the car had already been around the circuit more
- The hand rails at the NEW Primeval
Whirl ride at AK already had the vanish worn off in many
places (and I don't think it was part of the "theme"
since all the metal had nice fresh paint).
- We actually saw a bench (in the
area behind the Christmas shop at MK) collapse under a
guest. The wood had apparently rotted and the screws just
pulled out. (I know some readers will think this is a
troll, but we REALLY did see it happen.)
The Cast Members seem to the be only
part that is still (for the most part) consistent (doing
a good job keeping the magic going). Still, I wonder how
long this can be kept up. Many CMs seem overworked, some
having to do jobs that used to be handled by more than one
The bean counters at WDW seem determined
to see how far they can push things. They don't seem to
realize that the most prized asset of Disney is it's reputation.
Once it's lost, the value of the company will go down the
drain. They (with the apparent exception of people in Japan)
don't seem to understand the need to keep looking at the
long term picture.
Thanks for the site,
BTW, I've attached a picture of "Space"
under construction, as viewed from the GM lounge at Test

Brian, We just returned from a trip to Disney World May 11-18,

Disneyland, is that there is just so much capacity in this
resort as a whole, that it's hard to build up enough demand
to tax that capacity. As a result, the regular schedule has

On the Swan Renovation issue: I was
pumped to get what I felt like was a great rate there, then
started reading about renovations. Starwood preferred guest
booking had no notes in their system about renovations 9which
they normally would), but I was seeing too many things about
it not to check it out.
I called the front desk and the marginally
helpful girl confirmed that they would be renovating - that
it was due to start soon (the next few weeks) and would definitely
not be done before our October stay. Dissatisfied about her
vague assurances that this would not impact our trip, I called
Starwood again and provided feedback about my frustration
with the fact that for their preferred members, they had no
information on this renovation.
My comments were sent in an email to

I have found so many wonderful ideas and hints! Thank you for
putting this together.
|Thanks for the kind words, Sue. :)

always gotten email about the WDW Trip Planning Guide, but since we added
form to the site several months ago, the number of questions has increased
dramatically! I do my best to answer each and every question personally,
but I've noticed that a lot of the questions are asked again and again.
The question that one person asks might very well be the question that
someone else is wondering about. Thus this page!
reader email and feedback every once in a while, because the question
someone else asks might be the same one you're thinking about yourself!
