Tip of the Week

This week's tip comes via Twitter from CrazedMommy (@Shash on Twitter), who recommends going to the Pirates League and becoming a pirate. Check out her review of the experience.

Featured Attraction

This week we look at Peter Pan's Flight at both Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park.

Review System Spotlight

This week we take a look at Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Resort. MousePlanet readers like it, rating it 4.2 out of five planets. Our featured review this week is by Jodieileen6 of Mechanicsburg, OH.

Jodieileen6 and family ate at Kona Cafe, and despite a horrible server, still highly recommend the restaurant, giving it a 5-planet rating.

You can also find the Kona Cafe in our Park Guide.

Ask the Kid

This week's question was asked by Mary Tesch from Seymour, WI:

"I know your Dad likes to take pictures in the parks. Do you like to take pictures as well? If so, what are your favorite things to photograph?"

Last Week on MousePlanet

Andrew Rich, down at MousePlanet Global Headquarters told you what you may have missed on the MousePlanet site last week if you're not visiting regularly.

Listener Feedback

Our Theme Park Etiquette episode inspired all feedback on today's show.

Kathy wrote in to suggest the addition of "Do not walk backward, not even one step, unless your chin is on your shoulder and you are looking behind you BEFORE you start moving." she had too many experiences with people moving backward without looking on her recent trip.

Arnold van Beverhoudt wrote to say that he supports the list 1000 percent.

Tina Delaney wrote (via Facebook) that she wanted to know our opinion on whether or not your party should secure a table while you're in standing line at a counter service eatery.

Mike wrote to thank us for putting forth the list, despite the fact that we're likely preaching to the choir in regard to MousePlanet readers and MouseStation listeners. He also complimented us on all of the articles that MousePlanet runs.

Sharon Hodges wrote to thank us for the story. She described some of the rude behavior that she's experienced while visiting the parks using a walker. Mark suggested that she might benefit from using a scooter from MousePlanet partner Scooter Vacations, which would both help her with her stamina issues and make it more difficult for others to ruin her vacation.
