“Soar” to Great Heights … with ResortTV1!

Howdy, all!  Are you missing your slice of “magic” this morning?  Then, experience a breathtaking ride on one of Walt Disney World’s most-popular attractions – Soarin’!  Hop on board by clicking the picture below.

That’s right, my friends!  Join ResortTV1 on a “tour” around the world and, then, pop back to their YouTube site tonight to visit Orlando “live” and “in person”.  Their LIVE stream kicks off at 6 PM Eastern!

What’s “Living” in The Land?!

Good morning, my friends!  How are you!  Sorry for the longer-than-usual absence.

If you missed it on my personal Facebook account, Mrs. All in WDW and I were up in Ohio celebrating with our son and his fiancee.

Why?  Well, he learned on Friday that he’ll be doing his Emergency Medicine residency at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee!

While a milestone for the family!  It, of course, had to take priority over Disney!  Anyway, today, we get back to business!

A simple query for you … with so few activities “living” in The Land, at present, what’s most likely to bring you to visit that formerly jam-packed pavilion?

Would it be Sunshine Seasons for lunch or dinner?  Take note, a cooked breakfast is not available as long as Soarin’ is being revitalized.

Seasons

Do you long to experience the pavilion’s only active attraction, Living with the Land …

The Land

… or, its partner, but paid, experience – Behind the Seeds?

Seeds

Finally, would only a character meal at Garden Grill prompt you to prioritize a visit?

Garden

Let us know, my friends!  Just respond to the survey poll below!

Not much to do in The Land, these days, folks, but I have to admit, plenty of people still drop by to see “what’s up”!

Good morning, my friends!  I would absolutely love to start previewing “Food” & Garden’s Outdoor Kitchens in more detail, but I guess that’ll have to wait until tomorrow … or the day after!

File Feb 23, 5 24 07 AM

So, a few days ago, as I announced that IllumiNations had just become the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Epcot Attraction, I asked you for an opinion.

Rumors still pop up now and then.  In fact, for years, the talk has been that a new fireworks extravaganza is being developed for Epcot.  What?!  I am shocked and appalled!  Well, evidently, you are not!

When asked for your opinion as to whether or not Disney should replace our Epcot “champ”, over 75% of you voted to “Tweak Illuminations” or declared that you’re “Ready for a Replacement”!  75%!

I am stunned!  Personally, I cringe at the thought of, yet, another Walt Disney World “icon” biting the dust.  Clearly, however, you have spoken.  You’re ready for a change.  You’re looking for an upgrade.  Wow!

See ya’ real soon, folks!

Hey, Disney! Here’s an Illuminating Result! We Have a Winner!

Good morning, my friends!

I truly hope that someone at Disney takes note of the result we’ve just delivered.  In fact, put away your market research, Disney.  We’ve done the job for you.

Rumors still pop up now and then … Disney is plotting and planning.  Diabolical park managers have decided it’s time for change.  Imagineers have obediently gone into development.

Of what, you ask?  Well, sadly, it has been rumored for years (I googled it, and the oldest report I found was dated 2008!) that a new fireworks extravaganza is being developed for Epcot.

More Illuminations

What?!  Actually, the fact that this has been rumored “for years” gives me hope.  Maybe all these reports are just groundless speculations –  bunches of smoke.

Maybe Disney’s own market research efforts haven’t let us down.  Maybe we’ve already told them what we really want.  But, if not, let the world of All in WDW scream it loud and clear …

Congratulations, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth!  You are the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Epcot Attraction!  May Disney take note of your victory, and may your reign last for a long, long time!

Folks, what are your thoughts about the potential replacement of our Epcot “champ”?  Please weigh in, below.

In the meantime, thank you very much for all your votes and support these past few days!  We’ll visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom to crown its “king” in March!

Epcot’s Phenomenal Finale! Which Attraction Will Win?

Yesterday, I asked Mrs. All in WDW which two of our remaining eight attractions had won her votes.

“I voted for both festivals,” she simply said. “Those times of the year are when I enjoy being in Epcot the most.”

Excellent!  If anything embodies the mindset of choosing a Readers’ Favorite, that point of view says it all.  Great work, my dear!

Spaceship Earth & Palms

My friends, we’ve made it to the big, phenomenal finale, and you have ONE final vote to cast.

Four phenomenal attractions remain.  One will become the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Epcot Attraction.  Which will it be?
