Join us on November 15 in Epcot or at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

If you're going to be at Walt Disney World the weekend after Veterans Day but won't be playing MouseAdventure, you'll still have a chance to attend a MousePlanet meet! There'll be two meets on Sunday, November 15, the day after MouseAdventure. You can meet Mark Goldhaber for some chocolate mousse at Boulangerie Patisserie at Epcot's France pavilion at 1:00 p.m. That evening, there'll be another meet at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Meet Mark Goldhaber at the Tomorrowland entrance to the Rose Garden about 15 minutes before the Holiday Wishes nighttime spectacular. If you're planning to attend, be sure to let us know so we can have enough MousePlanet buttons and other stuff for everyone!

Tip of the Week

This week's tip comes via Facebook from listener Tina Delaney, who suggests that, in these days of free dining and heavy ADR loads, call Disney Dining from your hotel and see what same day options are available.

Mark also suggested the online dining reservations system.

Featured Attraction

This week, we look at Spaceship Earth at Epcot.

Review System Spotlight

This week we take a look at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. MousePlanet readers like the resort, rating it 3.8 out of five planets. Our featured review this week is by laurele of Philadelphia, PA.

laurele's family loved the resort, as well as the recreation options. They enjoyed it so much that they gave it a 5-planet rating.

You can also find the Yacht Club in our Park Guide.

Magical Moment

This week's Magical Moment came in a voicemail from Bill Aiken. Bill's family was visiting Hershey Park, but that didn't stop his daughter from making believe that she was Ariel, especially on the water rides..

Last Week on MousePlanet

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

Listener Feedback

Vickie Backus wrote in to agree with Mark that the adult content of Disney Stores has really gone downhill.

Sharla Manglass called in to note that the new Wine & Dine half marathon will be at night, so the person who emailed us on an earlier show would still be able to run through the Studios at night..Sharla also heard that the Alien at The Great Movie Ride was changed because it was too scary, so they made it more hidden so kids wouldn't be terrified. Sharla won't be at MouseAdventure because she'll be in Paris. She's very excited about the trips, and will tell us about it when she returns.

Harry Trinh and Roger both sent in questions regarding Mystic Manor at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

Dean from New York City called to tell us about the Christmas Carol train, which he saw at Grand Central terminal.

Chris Reilly wrote in to let us know that there is indeed a walkway from Shades of Green to the Polynesian, and he sent along a photo of it.

Sean Jones called in twice to say hi from Disneyland. It was good to hear from him.

Alex Navarro called in to say hi, thank us for the podcast and to say that he hopes to see Mark at the mousse meet this coming weekend.
