    I‘ve been inside Space Mountain with the lights on before. It kind of takes the gloss off the ride when you recognize it’s not much different than the State Fair Monster Mouse coaster.

    We took my wife’s then 80 year old aunt to Disneyworld in 2006. Pirates of the Caribbean had just reopened with Jack Sparrow added, my kids had gone to the midnight show before we left, so we headed there first. We got to within 2 boats of the exit and the ride broke down. We had to walk back...

    I’ve been to Disney twice when the Magic Kingdom closed to anyone not staying on-site due to capacity limits. Fun times...

    I’ve never been to Vegas and we were in the preliminary stages of planning a combined trip to Vegas and Napa Valley. At some point, that will happen. Maybe once Seattle joins the league, we’ll do a road trip there too, and combine it with a trip to see our daughter and my sister in Portland...

    Last year was the first time we had been in probably 4-5 years. My father lives in Florida and my sister used to live on the other side of Orlando from Disney and Universal, so we used to tie visits to them into a trip to one of them. I haven’t been to the Star Wars stuff yet, and the only trip...

    Holiday Inn is upscale compared to the All-Star. But you’re right, they’re fine. Although I’ll spend the extra $15-20 per night to stay at the Pop Century.

    I love how this has turned into a Disney travel thread. If, as Jeff speculates, the NBA camps at Coronado Springs, MLS will be stuck at a value resort. If the NBA can only afford a moderate resort, there is no way MLS could afford the Caribbean or Port Orleans.

    Not only did we keep up that schedule last year, we paid for an extra 3 hours in Hollywood Studios after it closed. But 4 straight rides on the Rock n Roller coaster nearly killed me.

    We stayed a the Swan once, never again. The next time we stay at a monorail resort will probably be the Polynesian. But we’re in the park from opening to closing and it‘s awfully hard to justify the price difference between there and Pop Century for a bed. I wouldn’t mind a savannah view room...

    The All Star, Pop Century and Art of Animation are the closest hotels to the Wide World of Sports. But I guess they won’t be slumming it in the Value resorts? ;) I’ve stayed at All Star sports once and Pop Century a few times. They’re fine for what they are; basic, no frills lodging. If you...
