WDW Main Street – Episode #328 – Our Weekly News … a.k.a “Ranting about Express Transportation”!

The Impending Demise of the Grand Floridian Resort?

A few days back, WDW News Today posted a rumor touting the claim that Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts Bob Chapek is not a big fan of the Grand Floridian Resort.

A "Grand" sight!

How much longer will this be a “Grand” sight?

In fact, the rumor suggests that WDW’s flagship could be gutted in order to become a modern luxury resort on a par with the Four Seasons Resort Orlando.

For the full article, please visit WDW News Today at this link!

Our question for you, today, is this … do you agree with Mr. Chapek?  Should the Grand Floridian be replaced?  Re-themed?  Removed?

On a recent episode of our podcast, Dennis Conroy suggested those very things.  For that “take”, and much more, listen to …

Running(?) All Over Walt Disney World!

Wow!  Between Disney Springs and Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, I certainly have been running us all over Walt Disney World the last few weeks!  I need a rest!

Actually, let’s stop to breathe for a few minutes and review this week’s poll results, OK?  On Monday, we tackled pizza.  Yum.  Are you as big of a pizza fan as me?

Well, we visited the BoardWalk Pizza Window.  About 56% of you have tasted their cuisine, and the vast majority rank it as a 3 or 4 on a scale from 1 to 5.  That’s above average, at least!

When pressed, you’d prefer to sample either their Pepperoni or Signature pizza!  It was too close to call, really.  The poll is still open, my friends.  Click back to this link to register your opinions!

Yesterday, we bounced over to Disney Springs to enjoy Walt Disney World’s newest creperie – AristoCrêpes!  After perusing a menu that provides both savory and sweet options, we made our selections!

Talk about split decisions!  On the savory side, the results were, more or less, dead even!  I hear good things about their Beef Crepe.  The voters slightly preferred the Turkey Crepe.

For our sweet tooth, the results were spread across the board, as well.  Everything but strawberry seems to catch your fancy.  This poll is still open, too, folks.  Access it here!

As much as you see me cover the best of Disney’s food and drink, Mrs. All in WDW and I also focus a good portion of our visits on exercise.

Daily walks about property are our preferred physical activity, and, whether it be through the parks or around the resorts, options for enjoyable, relaxing, scenic strolls are plentiful.

I have begun to compile my own favorite “courses” through property, and I thought I’d share the detail.  Behold, the beginning of my collection of “maps”!  Not exhaustive, but quite useful.  Enjoy … and get walking!
