After the terrorist events of Sept. 11, 2001, I remember seeing a photo of Disney World being evacuated. I've since not been able to find it, but would love to find it again. [more inside]

Last-minute vacation madness: my sister in DC just asked me to plan a vacation to Disney World for my 6-year-old niece during this year's winter holidays. She'd like 3-5 days, either before or after Christmas. Today is already December 8. Is this perfectly doable, or difficult/expensive but worth it, or not recommended? If we go ahead at this late date, what can we do to get the most out of the trip? [more inside]

I noticed recently on a trip to Disneyworld (FL, USA) that the ubiquitous mouse ear balloons are now enclosed in a second, clear balloon. When did this change, and does anyone know why? [more inside]

My wife and I want to stay at Disney World (Florida) with our 8-year old granddaughter. I'm almost 6-foot, 5-inches tall and I don't want a double-size bed, which seems to be what Disney wants families to sleep in.
While there are rooms with king-size beds, they are only for two people. Our travel agent called them and was told that their Coronado Springs hotel is only one where we can get a room with two queen-size beds. Quite frankly, the Southwestern theme doesn't appeal to us, and we think our young granddaughter won't find it very charming at all.
So, we're looking for suggestions or alternatives. We'd like to stay on the Disney property to avoid having to rent a car. Even more important than that, we want to stay at a hotel where we can get to/from the hotel quickly and easily, without having to wait for crowded shuttles or buses.

Anyone else on here have experience with the Disney Vacation Club? I'm seriously thinking of buying into it, but was wondering what people's experiences have been with it. Or perhaps even other similar "vacation club" programs.

I'm going to Disney World! I, my fiance, and my 8-year-old daughter will be there this weekend, all day Saturday and Sunday, Ultimate Park Hopper tickets, staying on site, all that. I've never been. What's a must see/do?
