  2. The schedule for Pixelmania 2024 has been deciphered and declassified!
    • First, park reservations will open on October 8th for Annual Pass holders.
    • Please see the DINING SIGN UP post in this Pixelmania forum for Dining sign ups so we have a number for the ~DINING COMMITTEE~ to make reservations.

    Wednesday Dec. 11th Dinner at Toledo, Time TBD followed by Yehaa Bob Jackson, at Disney's Port Orleans Resort

    Thursday Dec. 12th MAGIC KINGDOM in the morning and afternoon, we will NOT be going to MVMCP this year so we hop to EPCOT when they kick us out for MVMCP and ride Guardians until brain damage ensues.

    Friday Dec. 13th EPCOT all day, with a lunchish TBD meal at the Biergarten with a Candlelight processional package for those that wish to indulge.

    Saturday Dec. 14th Hollywood Studios all day and we are doing the Jollywood nights party in the evening here. We will have Lunch at 50's Primetime Cafe, time TBD

    Sunday Dec. 15th Animal Kingdom Dining will probably be counter service somewhere in the park

    I’ll know my actual dates mid January… but tentatively it’s 12/7 to 12/18 and most likely staying with the riff-raff at AKL (Jambo for a change)

    Don't get black! Disneyland security will think it's a "professional" tripod. ;)

  14. Whereas me, with my big honking Manfrotto tripod, waltzes through security with absolutely zero resistance.

    However, every two or three years a clueless Karen CM at the gates (not security), (why is it ALWAYS at Hollywood Studios??), will stop me because she thinks no one is allowed to bring any tripods into the park at all.

    I call for backup from a manager and ̶r̶e̶q̶u̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶ INSIST!! to go to guest services with the Karen cast member to ̶s̶c̶h̶o̶o̶l̶ ̶ ̶ educate her dumb ass in the proper tripod policy.

    This almost always results in Karen backing down.

    Thank you for coming to my tripod TED talk.

    PS, Guest services is very friendly concerning tripod clearances.

    For those flying in and renting a car, I have found that the prices from Dollar, Budget and Alamo are significantly cheaper when renting in Tampa and dropping off in Orlando. I don't see any drop-off charges. The one-way rental is just under $500 for 11 days, which, while still ridiculously high, beats the $700-$800 prices for renting and returning in Orlando. It remains to be seen if prices drop further in the fall.

    If you have an Annual Pass but are not rich enough to afford DVC, there is a new discount available for Pixelmania. It saved me over $600 on my stay at Pop. Check your reservation or contact your travel agent.
