    You might want to check into it but I believe they have shut down the walkways between Saratoga and DTD and that would be for the entire duration of the conversion of DTD to Disney Springs.
    Actually, all along they've been issuing a magicband for each resort stay when doing split stays...I don't understand why, other than they don't seem to be able to handle re-using a magicband in the system currently. An amazing waste.

    As for the SSR to DTD walk (I still can't multi-quote)...it IS the walkway that was out by the Marketplace that has been closed, and as far as I know still is. And there is no sidewalk on Buena Vista Drive there.

    The Westside walkway remains open I believe.

    Thanks. That's very weird, since one of the main roadways goes right through that area. The walkway itself runs along the bank of the waterway, then goes over a bridge on the side of the road. Unless they only blocked off that one little entrance, which would also be strange because that's close to the bus stop. Guess I'll have to check it out in person about a month from now.

    Ugh. Moderator approval. Whatever.

    As for the multi-quotes, once they changed over the website, it hasn't worked. I've been doing it myself, but with all the cut and paste, it really is a pain in the butt.

    You are right. It was said back in July that that the one to DTD will be replaced after they finish Disney Springs in a few years.

    They are expanding by putting buildings along the lake and the walkway was in the way of the expansion. Said they can't have guests walking through construction areas. lol. What is it I've been doing in Fantasyland for years and year?

    Know you have a distain for buses but another option other than the West Side sidewalk is the boat from Saratoga to DTD.

    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    It has something to do with the "Disney Springs" construction, although I have no idea why it is involved in it as it is about as far as way as it could be. They are supposed to be building an all-new bridge that is further away from the road, but still where it is relatively narrow. Not supposed to open until next year.

    Re: MyMagic+, FastPass+, and MagicBands coming soon

    Back in August the porch area of Sid Cahuengas became a Magic+ kiosk area.

    Today Sid's store closed and will become a complete service center area for My Magic.

    Says something if you need a service center.

    In the AP's Mickey Monitor that came out today, it states that in 2014 passholders will receive a Magic Band and will be able to book FP+ 60 days out.

    Nooooooooooooooo. As an autograph collector, I LOVED Sid's. Maybe the license agreement expired? Or are moving the location? That old bungalow was cool and I loved browsing their merchandise, even though most of the original stuff had sold through and was gone. Lately, they have more overpriced autographed pieces than movie stills and posters.

    This is extremely disappointing... I will miss Sid's greatly... even though I could never afford to buy anything in the store... just the ambiance and the items were awesome...

    Great seeing you again, Joe.

    I've purchased a lot of the movie stills when they carried them, plus a few posters. I also purchased one autograph when they were clearing it out. I have a few that they sell, so it's nice to see some already in my collection. The one piece that I love was an old paper mobile for Robin Hood that I picked up there over two decades ago. Still have it somewhere.

    Eeek. Sorry. I loved the bungalow too, way to nice to be a pit stop for issues with your Magic Band. Sids the last time I was in it had about half the stuff they use to and it was consolidated to one side. I really thought that was where they'd stick the Starbucks, it had a good location and the Starbucks in DL parks have areas to sit down unlike WDW, so I thought Sids was it. Ooops.

    I did read somewhere, where they will put some similar items elsewhere. My brain just isn't recalling. I'll keep my eye out for it again.

    OK, new I had seen it. At the conclusion of the Backlot Tour is the American Film Institute stuff. Sid's stuff is going to go in there for now.

    That in itself says something about the stall in imagineering developing the Backlot area into a new area for a while.
