I read the talk about the Pooh ride and YES, I am sorry to say it was closed, and looks like it will be for awhile. But, if you are planning on going to MGM, make sure you catch the Playhouse Disney show...may bring you some comfort, LOL! Also, at WDW the Carousel Of Progress is closed too...that was one of my favorites but I suppose they need to update it since they haven't in so long!
Now, my best tip! Take advantage of the FAST PASS! It will save you an extraordinary amount of time on the long lines. There was no way we could schlepp all three of our kids on almost everything with the park closing at 7pm without it! And, the same tickets you get for fastpass are the very same looking ones you get for ride swapping...make sure you go up to the attendant at the begining of the long line and ask to SWAP...they will issue you a ticket if you say you are going to stand in line first...but if the line is busy you can eaily slip into the fast pass line and hand them the swap ticket with them thinking you already waitted in line and just sending in the second adult thru. If you combine a Ride Swap with a Fast Pass you can get even more opportunities to get on a favorite ride without the wait. But, you can not run around the park and get all Fast Pass tickets to all available rides because there is a time limit...you can only have one Fast Pass issued within a certain amount of time or after it's been used...then go get another one. We would go to one area, get a fast pass & then do other stuff until it was time for the Fast Pass ticket. But, you want to make sure you get the rides you really want firts because at the end of the day you won't be issued a time if it's too close to park closing.
We had a GREAT time, and I suggest the show in front of Cinderella's castle...get there a couple minutes earlier because it gets crowded fast...we were right at the front and my kids were mesmerized the whole show! If you need any questions answered, please don't hesitate to ask, I still have lots of the guide maps & times info in case you are getting ready to go! *HUGS* Sharon (sorry about the cl-thingy, having problems switching it off)
