I bet it is. They make that fine print soooo much smaller than they used to so I can't read it anymore.

Maybe that's why they've added alcohol to the dining plan. Helps to blur the small print!

Trying to talk DH into riding the Skyline. I figure if I can do it in TN and VA then I can do FL. It will be our own version of Sorin' Of course the downside is missing the stop at ESPN club on our way from HS to Epcot.

The Peace on Earth holiday tag is phenomenal every year. It was even better when Walter Cronkite was the narrator.

Agreed, but IIRC last year they didn't do the Cronkite narration (which was sad), but instead had a more spectacular finale than in the past, concluding with a massive burst of small mostly or entirely white fireworks that just wouldn't quit; there must have been a couple hundred.

This is twice that's been reported in just the last couple of weeks. If it's that frequently, they aren't going to be able to get rid of the bus routes. I'm glad my first gondola resort stay is at a calm time of year weather-wise. I really want to experience every inch of the gondola runs.
