#TBT This was our visit in 2010 with my sister and my niece. They will be with us in April and I want to do this picture again. (minus the strollers)

I am wondering if any of you are planning on going to the book signing by Ridley Pearson the author of the Kingdom Keepers books. It is on March 28th one time in the parks and the other in DTD. We will just miss it and we love his books. I would be forever grateful if anyone is already going and willing to grab an extra book and signature. We will be there April 5th-9th to pay and get it. Thanks i  More...

I wish! πŸ˜” great books!  - Darlingwendi  959.0 #169 7:10PM

I have a question. I tried to schedule for Fantasmic for April 6th and she told me its not available for April 6th, 7th, and 8th. Does anyone know why they are not going to have it for 3 nights?

Not sure. Seems like everything is getting a refurb before the 60th .  - JenGwen323  1484.7 #94 12:38AM

Does any CM or someone who has done the new Fantasmic dining packages know how you get your time for the show? Do they give it randomly? If you show up for a lunch do you get the earlier time than if you show up for dinner? Thanks!

Good question. When we did the dining option for Blu Bayou we did not get a show time option. When they gave us our fast passes at dinner the times were on them. We got the 845 show.  - jedimickey  49.8 #0 11:45AM
Thanks, good to know. I don't think we will do Blue bayou since we ate there last trip and we didn't love the food for the price. I am just doing this to make sure at least one night my son gets to see his favorite show.  But good to know. - keepmovingforward  161.2 #2448 12:42PM
We did the Oasis meal and when you make reservations they ask you which showing you would like FP for. If you have a late reservation, however, they will advise you to go to the second showing. We were given our FP at our table. - missmimi90  1707.9 #81 11:59AM
OK, thanks. Good info. I am looking at the Oasis one. - keepmovingforward  161.2 #2448 12:39PM
No problem. If you need a review on how the dining itself works with Oasis, I can bump a post I made with info. - missmimi90  1707.9 #81 1:01PM

Sorry as it gets closer to our trip I have more questions. Not only are we celebrating my sons birthday but, the first day we are there is Easter. Where are good places for an Easter dinner. I saw Storytellers ( thoughts?) Thanks!

I like Storytellers Cafe in general, haven't been there for a holiday though. Their food is good and they have gluten free options. Make sure you make a reservation as soon as you can to ensure a table at the restaurant you choose.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  218.1 #1663 2:18PM

I have a question for everyone. On my sons birthday trip he wants to eat somewhere that has BBQ chicken wings. I see places with BBQ other things or buffalo wings. So does anyone know where they have BBQ chicken wings in the parks or in DTD? TIA for any answers

Usually they have that in a buffet, the storytellers at the grand californian hotel - TinkerbellRings  1.5 #59996 9:49AM
Thanks! I will look at that. - keepmovingforward  161.2 #2448 10:07AM
Big Thunder BBQ has chicken with the meats and has wings. You should be able to ask for mostly wings. - DLKenCA  2019.5 #63 10:25AM
Oh, thanks. We ate there before but, dont remember having wings. We were going to go again. So that will work.  - keepmovingforward  161.2 #2448 10:35AM
House of Blues has then and not bad. Also Rainforest but I hate that place. ESPN for sure but haven't had them there - Goofytom  1095.8 #143 5:21PM
Cross off Rainforest. They only have buffalo wings. Lucky for you. Both ESPN and House of Blues has BBQ wings - Goofytom  1095.8 #143 5:25PM

#TBT This isnt that far back but, was MHP 2013. This is my son with the great CM Tammy. One year she brought out Fifi and let my son walk her. The next year she showed us the pet cemetary. She is always so friendly to us.

Tammy is one of the most friendly and caring Cast Members I know. She always goes out of her way to check in on everyone working Mansion when she's there and organizes events and get togethers for Cast Members outside the park. - CM_Shadowgamer  2388.1 #48 8:10PM
