Question for a friend and for myself. We are both staying at Fort wilderness cabins next year, she asked if they have golf carts you can rent to get around the resort? Anyone know? Thank you!!
Ok I finally it on the website. Says $59 which I assume is a night. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 6:13PM
Wow. It's cheaper to walk  - 5disneylovers  1293.4 #8 7:13PM
Lol! Bet my hubby pays it so he doesn't have to walk more than he HAS to. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ He isn't thrilled about going in August. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 8:34PM
You can rent a golf cart from an outside Company for cheaper. Also, we walked around the campground or took the bus, the internal buses are nearly empty and come fairly quick  - DizneyGirl  1618.3 #4 7:25PM
Is it separate from the park buses? - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 8:33PM
Yes. - DizneyGirl  1618.3 #4 6:12AM

Question for my sis in law. November we are staying at shades of green, she is wondering if a taxi or uber is cheaper than the car service that's on SOG website to go back to the airport, has anyone taken taxi or uber from resort to airport? If so do you now about how much it is?
About 60.00 one way. Maybe little more since shades is near mk. We usually catch it to disney dolphin.  - islandgirl58  536.0 #18 2:07PM
Uber is usually cheaper, on their website you can do a fare estimator to see the exact cost based on the size of the car that you need to be picked up in. - Andrea84  761.3 #12 3:48PM
I honestly don't remember. There are a couple guys we use all the time and they are vey nice and prompt. They have different size vehicles so the accommodate the 8 of us. We even use them to get to and from universal for like 40.+tip - mmddgp  2038.0 #3 9:44AM
Thank you Gayle! I got your message but couldn't figure out how to respond. Lol! I will pass info along to my sis in law. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 8:20PM

If they dont mind sharing rides, do the supershuttle. Yeah it might be early pickups (like magical express), but it is a good deal - otilegna  2917.3 #61 4:20PM

I missed another ressie today at sci-fi because I forgot I needed to make it until 9:45am central time. What time does dining open and in which time zone, so I can set my alarm?
I would like to know too! I can't remember! I'm 12 days away... - brittandkell  558.1 #439 10:21AM
Next trip is the first time for ressies for us.  I was assuming time zone for park.  Let me know if different. - JekPorkins  25.5 #153 3:17PM
Just realized you were making ressies  and not in park.  Too much grilled meat yesterday.πŸ€“ It is the time zone of the park.  6:00 am for WDW eastern time.  Had to get up at 5am to reserve. - JekPorkins  25.5 #153 3:32PM
Thanks! Setting my alarm.  - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 3:49PM
We were able to walk up and get in. We also went right when they opened...sometimes its best if you can eat off meal times...I know it's hard, I'm useto though with working in a smoothie a d wrap shop since I can't eat at noon when it's our busiest time of the day - TinkTinkTink  335.6 #30 4:22PM

Dining ressie day!! We wanted Le Cellier Steakhouse for our arrival day since that's our 10th anniversary, but it's all booked. I will keep checking back though. And I forgot since we aren't staying at Disney property I can't do dining for all week today. We are so spoiled to WDW vacation packages. Lol. I'm so excited to finally be at the 180 day mark though. Hope everyone has a great day!
So exciting. I can't believe le cellar is all booked already. Good luck.  - mmddgp  2038.0 #3 9:06AM
I know I couldn't believe it. Guess because it's holiday weekend. I booked us at California grill for now we ate there on our honeymoon so I thought a good second choice. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 4:25PM
Yeah, same for us.. so a lot of the good places are taken, even if I wake up 12am hawaii time. I got a lot of good ones my last trip, since we were all in disney property hotels.  - islandgirl58  536.0 #18 9:37AM

Ok I have a possible dilemma. I bought my family and my in laws plane tickets today my brother in law and his wife are not liking the 6:20am flight time, she said hey may take a later flight. We thought ok that's fine but then I remembered at Shades of green we can not check in without them there.😬 We will land at like 9:30 they won't land until like 6pm. I'm not even sure if we can get on prop  More...
They need to suck it up and sleep on the plane. When going to WDW our flights are always that early.  - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1112.3 #209 8:10PM
My hubby is thrilled but he doesn't want to waste a day by taking a late flight and his favorite saying "happy wife happy life" so he grins and bears it. Lol - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 6:02AM
When we did our land/sea trip. We ended up taking a red-eye flight so that we didn't lose a day at the parks. We were exhausted when we got there. No room to take a nap at. We got breakfast and headed into the parks. We kept zonking out on the buses, but we still managed. - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1112.3 #209 12:16PM
Red eye only way to fly - jacdanfan  16058.8 #6 1:00PM
Oh my. Yes they may but maybe a call to guest service might help also.  - mmddgp  2038.0 #3 5:55PM
I hope everything works out! Yeah hard part about shades,  only the person with military id can check in.  - islandgirl58  536.0 #18 10:50AM
Any idea if their 17yr old or 19 old with military id could work to get park tickets at least? One or both of them will probably end up on our flight. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 6:10PM
I'm pretty sure the only people that can get you the tickets are the person that served and their spouse. - DizneyGirl  1618.3 #4 4:41AM
When hubby wakes up from his nap I will ask him.  - islandgirl58  536.0 #18 5:18PM
I emailed they said one of the defendants can check into their room(we we in same room) and if we prepurchase tickets 30-45 days before trip we can pick them up without sponsor. So WHEW!! They can take later flight now I don't care. Lol - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 9:17AM
Awesome news - islandgirl58  536.0 #18 10:47AM
Defendants? What kind of trip is this? - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1112.3 #209 10:47AM
LOL I just noticed the defendants πŸ˜‚. Defendants aka teenagers. Lol fat fingers and autocorrect make great combos. - txdisneymomma  172.3 #55 12:20PM
So sorry.  If they want to pay for the fees to change let them.  If they allowed you to boom the flights why be upset now 😳.  We always try to go early as well.  Check in is not until 330.  - 5disneylovers  1293.4 #8 11:20AM

A little bit but not too much more, maybe $1 more per item. There is not really another one near by though off property.  - Andrea84  761.3 #12 4:22PM

I have a question. I booked a Disney trip for a friend(my first Disney booking as a travel agent 😊), but they want to go to Universal one day of their trip. My question is for those of you who have done this so you buy your Universal tickets beforehand or just buy them the day you go? She's a huge Harry Potter fan also and wants to go to Islands of Adventure. Thank you MW!
We went for one day on our most recent trip. The lines were not long, but it takes a long time for each person to decide which type of ticket they want. I wish I would have bought the tickets ahead of time, and if I remember correctly you get a discount for buying them ahead of time. I did not buy them ahead of time cuz I was not sure without a shadow of a doubt that we would be going. - DizneyGirl  1618.3 #4 9:28AM
So exciting. Congrats. We love universal and we almost always buy before hand. We have bought from AAA for a small discount and you can usually save about 20. Per ticket if you buy from the universal site. They will need a park to park ticket so they can do both parks and take the train from HP to HP parks. It's very cool. Something else to think of is if they think they will go more than one day or will be back within the year, check on an annual pass. It will give you discounts in the parks as well as discounts at the restaurants.  - mmddgp  2038.0 #3 9:35AM
Oh I didn't know about AAA discounts! Thanks for this info. We are planning to go there for one day, both parks. - missmimi90  2086.9 #96 11:03AM
We have bought at the ticket counter. This trip we are staying at night at cabana bay so we got the package and an extra hour in the morning in Harry Potter for me :) hubby could care less - TinkTinkTink  335.6 #30 3:50PM
Try and see if you can get a discounted ticket like the others have said. Base price for a park to park is the same as Disney, where the prices are front heavy(meaning if your going for just one day, you are going to be paying a heafty price compared to a multi day ticket). Also note that universal also does peak season ticketing as well.  - skywalker  273.3 #36 5:16PM
