  1. You seem to be willfully missing the point. Little Dix Bay didn't not put phones or TVs in the rooms because they were not technologically capable of doing so, but out of a refined sense of what a vacation should be. I would rather be on a ship full of six pack a day smokers than the (expletive deleted) technology users I want to get away from on a vacation.
  2. I remember a time when luxury resorts like Little Dix Bay didn't put phones or TVs in their rooms as a courtesy to their guests. Yes. Coral Princess. Yet you insist on missing the point.
  3. Extra Magic Hours alternate between parks, it isn't in both parks every day. Disneyland it is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, one hour prior to park open and DCA is Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, one hour prior to park open, so the back entrance wouldn't help the OP for EMH. There is no one in these forums who loves Disney more than me. I've been a shareholder since I was 10, I was a cast member for 10 years and an annual pass holder since then..... but I am telling you, the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend would be a colossal mistake. The tickets would be at their most expensive possible (a 1 Day, Weekend, Peak Ticket), you'd have to buy Max Pass (extra $15 peer ticket, assuming you have a Smart Phone) and even at that the parks are packed to the gills. It is not a fun time in the parks.
  4. If you need to do Facetime and stream videos, maybe cruising is the wrong choice.

  6. No, that is the marketing slogan, I mean the actual throughput and bandwidth that is contracted for. The proverbial "fine print".
  7. Sorry, but there is no such thing as "unacceptably slow internet" on a cruise ship. If the HAVE to HAVE Internet access while on a vacation, don't do a cruise vacation. I get being upset if you buy it and the speed isn't what is promised, but I'd read carefully as to what is actually promised.
  8. It's no problem getting to San Pedro from Anaheim, but I wouldn't do it. That Saturday of Thanksgiving is probably the 3rd or 4th busiest Saturday of the year at Disney (the Saturdays around Christmas Day and New Years Day being 1 & 2, unless July 4th falls on or close to Saturday). If you stay in Downtown Long Beach you have the Aquarium of the Pacific, Belmont Shore, the Queen Mary and the USS Iowa in San Pedro. Downtown is a pleasant area with enough to do for a day and a half. I would not rent a car. PS Disneyland is much smaller than the Magic Kingdom, but it actually has more rides and attractions, substantially more, which actually is more reason NOT to try and jam it in in one day. Here is a cool website comparison; Magic Kingdom vs Disneyland
  9. My guess is the stairs are added later and aren't part of the pool superstructure.
  10. Don't forget the new Uber rules at LAX....
  11. Life is too short for bad airlines, even if they are cheap :) Back to back 5+ hour flights on 737's? I don't think so.
  12. If you've never flown on Hawaiian Airlines before, I'd do whatever I can to get on them. They might be the best U.S. carrier right now.
  13. I'd say 3pm-ish. It isn't awful, they do adjust the Coronado Bay Bridge, which has five lanes from 3 coming on the island to 3 leaving the island. It adds maybe ten minutes if you get caught in the traffic, but the ten minutes FEELS like forever.
