I'm trying not to park hop this time. I didn't promise myself anything about TOTWL!
That's definitely not park hopping, it's lounge hopping, a perfect option for an afternoon / evening break from the parks.

We like the food up in TOTWL too. There's a decent flatbread, a cheese board option, and of course the 7 layer chocolate cake! We order a couple of dishes to start and then see how hungry people are after, maybe order another one.

You'll love it

Now for my next stupid question...
Does Epcot change the "reflections" show around for different seasons/festivals like they do with the MK fireworks? Or is it the same old show 365 days a year? Don't shoot me, but it's just not one of my favorites...

Sort of. I'm not sure of the exact changes, but around Christmas the show is a little different.

But Flower and Garden, same old show? Meh. Probably skip that in favor of something else then.

Yes, usually possible I do believe. Have yet to test myself, though.

Yup, same show. Only from the day after Thanksgiving through New Year's is there the additional holiday tag at the end.

My kids like the pretzel dish too. I like the way they mix the drinks (strong)!

I think it's a possible option, or used to be.

However at Christmas when we were there, I heard some say they'd tried and couldn't. It might just be at busy times that they need to control who, and how many, get in. Or they might be trying to ensure it remains a DVC privilege, rather than letting renters use it.

We were asked for our DVC card a couple of times whilst in the lounge too.

So here's my stupid question....does the Gold Annual Pass include Memory Maker? It says that it includes photopass downloads, but is that the same thing as Memory Maker?
Thanks!

It's similar to Memory Maker.

The primary differences are with the download window and photo expiration time frame.

Normally, photos expire 45 days from date taken. The Memory Maker download window is 30 days from date of first download.

If you have a Gold (or higher) Pass, the photo expiration and download windows are 1 year.
