Is Soarin' currently under refurb like here in CA? If so, does anyone know when it reopens? Thanks!!
No it's not. At least I haven't read about it being closed.  - Schramke  495.4 #14 9:53PM

When Epcot is open w/late hours for resort guests until 11pm...is the whole park open? Or just part? Thank you!!
You'll have to check on the times but I know certain things in future world close early. Like universe of energy, club cool and others. The country's satay open as well as test track, soarn, figment, nemo. I'm not sure on all the details but the guide map will tell you or they have electronic screens in the park with that info too.  - Schramke  495.4 #14 1:27PM
Ok thanks, just trying to plan out my FP and never been there for late hours before. - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 2:04PM
Sometimes World Showcase is open for EMH but not always. I would check the website hours to see if it shows both parts of the park included in EMH, the main attractions will all be open. - Andrea84  686.5 #8 3:05PM

Hello WDW friends: wanted to get your expert opinion on crowd levels vs. EMH...so trying to decide whether to go to HS on a day that has EMH but it expected to be more crowded per the planning crowd websites. We'd be coming from AKL and I think we could get there about 15 minutes before the gates open for the EMH. We're only spending one day at HS...is it worth it to go with the EMH even though  More...
I don't know if I trust those crowd websites.  I would just stick with your plans and if you think it may be crowded, go early, take a mid-day break and then go back later to avoid the peak time.  I love extra magic morning hours, and we always go 30-45 min before park opening to get in good position to be among the first to enter, and then leave around lunch time for a break.   - mrsincredible  981.9 #4 7:43PM
That's a great suggestion...a break in the afternoon especially in June would be helpful I think, thank you! - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 8:28PM
In all these years I have never looked at a crowd calendar. Now I do look at emh parks and I try to stay away from those all together. Now that is just us because we do not make it late in parks and the kids like to go back and swim at night. We have found that on emh days that park is really busy all day long so we actually a few times have chose to have a relaxing morning at the pool with breakfast then get cleaned up and head to the park late afternoon and then spend the rest of the night there which works out great for us and we also do not hop we pick a park and stay there for the day. We also like to do Mk on tues wend or thur - mmddgp  581.4 #10 8:01PM
Thanks so much for the help!  The crowd calendars contradict each other too which makes them especially confusing! - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 8:29PM
The park that has EMH usually gets more crowded even if people don't get up early for EMH. They just think they need to go to that park because the park has early hours. It's a psychological thing. If you are only there 15 mins before, you will still be waiting in a big line to get inside and that will eat into that extra hour. Plus, keep in mind a lot of HS is under construction so it really depends on what your family wants to do there, if it would be worth it to go - wickedale  357.5 #594 8:38PM
Yes, very good point...I've wondered if we'd have a full day worth there with so many closures.  Thanks! - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 9:58PM
Even with the stuff not open and a full day we had to go back. Something to keep in mind is the showtimes as a lot of the attractions that are open are shows. And some only run once or twice or the last show is like at 5. So we came down to we could make our dinner reservation or see the last show we wanted to see. So we had to hop over another day to catch beauty and the beast.  - wolfster  37.7 #112 3:47PM

So I've been getting/reading conflicting info about Be Our Guest lunch reservations...the Disney Parks Blog originally said they'd be making them starting at 6am (FL time) on 2/25. But the BOG website now is very vague and says to check back on 2/27, and I called Disney Dining and they had no idea what I was even talking about. πŸŒ€πŸŒ€πŸŒ€does anyone know for sure or maybe the most reliable sou  More...
The Parks Blog info should be correct, the reservation agents usually won't give any info until the day reservations start. I plan to check first thing on 2/25 and try to score a few reservations for lunch also.  - Andrea84  686.5 #8 3:07PM
Ok thanks, what time and on the website or calling? - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 3:25PM
6 am EST and I would try the website first and then call if you can't book online and let them know the info was posted on the Parks Blog. Good luck with your reservations! - Andrea84  686.5 #8 3:43PM

Trying to decide on an Epcot dinner reservation...the menu at Tutto Italia looks good to me but was wondering if it's too 'nice' to bring my boys to? They are 6 & 9 and are well behaved, but are still kids haha. Via Napoli didn't appeal to me as much, but would love your opinions. Thanks so much!!
Have not been I had reservation but it was canceled by the restaurant. Oh yea I was going with a 2 yr old. So I'm sure they'll be fine - 5disneylovers  965.6 #5 12:48PM

Happy Friday everyone! Wondering about dinner at 1900 Park Fare...I did a search on here and it seems like the general consensus is that the characters are super fun but the dinner food is kinda meh?!? Is that everyone's opinion? Cinderella is my fav and that part sounds so fun, but wouldn't want to be extremely disappointed with the food for me and my boys, ages 6 & 9. Thank you!!
Yes do it for the experience with the characters. That was great. Food just so so. - Pooh147856  252.4 #28 5:48PM
I think we'll try it for the dinner because of Cinderella, thanks! - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 6:55PM

Thanks for the info, I think we'll go early and then maybe have a snack after back at the parks. - MinnieMousewife  868.6 #188 8:12PM
We go there every visit because the characters are awesome and we are disappointed in the food every time. I wish they would add a really good salad bar instead of all the salads they make. That would be a big improvement to me!!! - happygma2  30.5 #126 6:09AM

I ended up changing dates/resorts for my trip right after booking so I never got these booklets with the correct info...does that matter? I'm thinking if it's right on my disney experience then all is fine? Even though they never sent me updated ones? Thanks!
If I remember correctly, those booklets are just advertisement. Right? As long as My Disney Experience and your luggage tags/travel docs are correct, then you should be good! How many days? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  982.3 #3 4:57PM
Yes...the inside cover just has where you're staying w/the dates and then when you can make FP, dining. But yes, my disney is correct so probably fine...thank you!

It's all good seat I think. The fastpass gets you center stage. But get in line 30 mins before showtime. It's very crowded we go every August - 5disneylovers  965.6 #5 5:27PM

I just noticed that there are 2 different views available at the Boardwalk...garden/pool OR boardwalk. Which view do you think is better? I'm usually so organized with booking trips, but not this time so I'd love any opinions...thanks!
I've heard that Boardwalk side is louder because of the nightlife that can be found there aka piano bar, food and dance club along with the friendship boats to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. View wise however, I'd say Boardwalk is going to be better. - CM_Shadowgamer  2391.0 #49 1:48AM
Boardwalk view seems like the best option, I've only been able to get standard and pool views when I've stayed. If Boardwalk view is available I would definitely book that since you would have a great view of everything! - Andrea84  686.5 #8 3:17AM
