Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving! Was at the local beer distributor tonight and picked up a six pack of Mad Elf for tomorrow.

Excellent choice sir! I had to take care of the alcohol for my family's festivities today. For early snacks and dinner I'm bringing Brooklyn Lager and some bottles of moscato wine (family likes sweet wines). For the all important after dinner, I've got some Mad Elf, Baileys, Adult Choc Milk, and spiced apple wine. I'm only bringing a few bottles of Mad Elf, as I tend to horde my case

I'm pretty sure it's like Jello ... there's always room.

It may be a little quiet around here for the next few days with folks traveling and busy with the Thanksgiving holiday.

New Years

I am going to be @ Walt Disney World for New Years. I figure Epcot is the place to be. How is it? Also do single females go there to have fun? or is it mostly couples.

Welcome to the newbies that just jumped on board. If you were a lurker you know we know how to have fun. If you are single and looking for a mate, there are still quite a few singles on the thread that are fun and awesome. If you are looking for the next DISmeet up stay tuned. We meet up several times a year and not everyone meets at the same time. Because I am a "local" I tend to meet with as many groups as I can when they come to town. This is a fun place. Jump in, start a new topic, continue an old topic. . .nothing is off limits here.

I have actually never been to WDW during New Years so have no clue what you will find. I went to Disneyland once during New Years and it was a mad house so have not done a park on New Years since. Sorry, wish I had more info for you.

It's cool. I assume it would be a mad house and that I would need to stay in the park for the entire day. No re-entry I would assume, because it may reach limit capacity.

You are correct, it is a madhouse, about 14 years ago I met a friend & his Gf at Epcot on New Years

I was driving in from South Florida and at 8:30 am Disney had a portable variable-message sign up just before Epcot saying the Magic Kingdom Lot Full and MK closed, I pulled into Epcot and parked on the very last row, only minimal parking still open before 9am

Beer lines ? OMG Very very long and they wouldn't let me buy two at a time because I didn't have another person standing with me that changed when I met up with my buddy


I also agree with what you pointed out, you 'might' or 'will' have to stay in the park all day because of capacity limits, dress warm but tie the arms of your jacket and stuff around you during the day, I got hot during the day with too many layers but was freezing at night, coldest night I personally spent at Epcot, especially after my "friend" threw my hat in the fountain in front of Germany cuz I didn't want a shot of Yager

I chalked it up to one of those events you can check off your life's must do list

What would you do instead? NYC? Have you ever been to Disney on New Years Eve?

So have any of you ever gotten back from a Disney trip and regretted not making a purchase? I saw a gorgeous clock in epcot Japan but didn't buy it and now wishing I had. I already tried the Disney store website and it's not there. Is there any other way of getting it - like maybe calling the store? Has anyone ever found a way to buy something from the parks after the fact?

For most of the Disney run stores in WDW, you can try calling the merchandise #. It's been couple years, but in the past I've regretted snagging some X-mas ornaments that I couldn't find anywhere but onsite. I called the # and told them the store and described the item and they were able to ship to me. I've heard results can vary, especially with the World Showcase stores ... but it's worth a shot.

The # I have is 407-363-6200 ... hopefully it's up to date ... good luck and happy hunting! Usually with Epcot after I've had a few drinks, I end up with things I regret purchasing
