    I hope the alternative show is something good.

    Thanks for the updates, Jason...wish they offered better news, though. We've yet to see Illluminations, so news of the globe being down for our trip is upsetting. As is news that the fairy meet and greet probably won't be ready for our trip, either.

    BUT, at least I know ahead of time! Thanks!

    Default July 2008: Updated 7/18 with Illuminations, Fairies, and Dock Stage Updates

    Thanks Jason - sounds like they are trying to get the globe refurbished during a slow time of year. Hope they are done in time to avoid the F&WF rush!

    Wink Here's hopping!

    Thanks for the info Jason. I really hope they have it ready for my trip late sept/early oct. This will be my first time eating at R&C and I was looking forward to watching Illuminations. If we are really lucky we will get to see the new panels (Happy Thoughts )

    So are the Disney Pals being relocated? I don't think I understand that update. I know there are *shhh* two princess rooms and only one pals room, so where are the pals going when the fairies move in?

    Next Trip: May 2017 at POP...again. Unless the FP+ thing isn't worked out. Then we'll go to Dollywood. Or just stay home and look at pictures.

    Driving Up Prices

    7/23/08 Guests wishing to live out their race car dreams will have to pay a little more to do so starting this November. Effective November 1, 2008, the Richard Petty Driving Experience program will be raising prices on 3 of its 4 packages. The price of the Rookie Experience package (8 laps) will raised from $424.94 to $478.19 per Guest, the price of the King's Experience package (18 laps) will be raised from $1330.19 to $1383.44, and the price of the Experience of a Lifetime package (30 laps) will be raised from $1330.19 to $1383.44. The price of the Ride Along Package will remain at current pricing.


    Are these packages supposed to be the same rates?

    Wow! I understand them needing to cut back (don't we all right now?) but it's still sad to hear about. I'm glad we're getting in a trip before all these changes start taking place.

    Jason, thanks for the updates -- I guess I can understand Disney needing to cut back on a few things, but wow, they're sure doing a lot... and then raising the prices of some of the remaining stuff, as well... ... I sure hope they don't cut back on too many more things -- I've been thankful that not too many affect us as of yet!!

    Thanks so much for keeping us in the loop!

    Any word on if these are permanent changes? Or, is this just a temporary thing due to lower than usual bookings for early next year? Or, is it something else?
