    I hear that. I got annoyed that I had to pay for internet access.

    I agree with you about the internet access ! It is so ridiculous that I can go to a Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn and pay $60.00/$70.00 a night (and many other hotel chains) and they give you free Internet access . But I could be staying at the Grand Floridian and potentially be paying over $2000.00 a night and still have to pay $9.99 for a 24 hour period of Internet access (unless maybe if you are paying that much for a room they may throw in the internet, whoop di doo ) but the majority of the rooms you still have to pay:$$: !! Just doesn't seem right !!
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    ... you do understand that fish aren't exactly "native" to the lakes there, right? They're all put there by Disney specifically so Disney can sell fishing excursions. Those lakes were created by Disney.

    I think paying to fish is part of protecting the experience for the guests. Anyone can park on Disney property and walk to most of the lakes, so if local fisherman were allowed to just wander in, it would seriously disrupt guest enjoyment. I do not want to see fish caught, or eviscerated, especially not while paying that much to rest, relax, and enjoy. And let's look at aesthetics for a moment-picture the local fisherpeople out with coolers, picnic baskets, and rolling fish holding things, beer coolers and friends whooping it up while trolling for fish, it would really, REALLY spoil the experience for the folks who are paying for the privilege of the use of the property. So they control all of these things with a fee, which most people do not wish to pay. Internet should be free, period.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    I'm pretty sure you can fish for free at Pop Century.
