Odd question:  anyone know if the boats at Disney Springs have a drop off at/walking distance to the LBV golf course?

I found this:

Travel Directions: Complimentary taxi vouchers (through Yellow Cab) are provided for Walt Disney World Resort guests who are going to play golf at one of Disney's golf courses. The Valet desk or Bell Services will call a cab for Guests. The Pro Shop at the golf course will assist guests in returning to their resort. The Lake Buena Vista golf course is located near the Downtown Disney Marketplace and within the grounds of Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort. Exit I-4 onto 535. Turn left onto Hotel Plaza Boulevard. At the end of Hotel Plaza Boulevard (the Marketplace will be in front of you), turn right and follow the signs to the course.

From what I gather, the clubhouse is a short walk from the main Saratoga Springs Main building, and it looks like there is a boat dock at SSR. So i think you should be covered. But always best to check at the resort before going anywhere.

We stayed in Saratoga Springs back in 2010 and if my memory is correct the boat dock is right there at the Pro Shop.

UPDATE: According to Disney, the MagicBands will be available for purchase starting on May 15, 2019. Guests will be expected to pay $14.99 for each upgraded MagicBand at the time of selection. Upgraded MagicBands are non-returnable and non-refundable. This includes guests who have canceled their reservations. In addition, if a reservation is canceled, guests will be charged the full price (not the $14.99 discounted) rate for the MagicBands. 

@doowain just checked and it appears its not avail yet.  grrrrrrrr

The name of the new signature dining location at the Japan pavilion was announced yesterday. 

Takumi-Tei, and it is said to be open by this summer.

The restaurant will be named Takumi-Tei, which means house of the artisan. The design celebrates the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world, while the food is inspired by the wonderful collaboration between nature and takumi, the artisan.

According to internal documents we previously unveiled, the interior will have a few different themed rooms:
• Material Room (Check-In, Lobby)
• Wa Room
• Water Room
• Washi Room
• Wood Room
• Stone Room
• Earth Room

The upscale dinner menu will highlight wagyu beef (let's hope it's not shipped by FedEx, right @[icon] ) in a sublime setting, and guests interested in the ultimate experience will be able to indulge in a multi-course tasting menu featuring traditional tea service. Signature cocktails and premium sake will be available along with a wine and craft beer menu.

Love it or hate it, get ready for the lovely smell of gasoline and the unmistakable sounds of lawn mowers to be back in the MK

after being closed for a few months to accommodate the Tron coaster construction, the Tomorrowland Speedway reopened today.  

While it was down, it got a nice new paint job and the track was slightly altered and shortened but not by much.

Rode it yesterday AM. Had no idea it was closed but I remarked to my wife it looked fresh. My four year old loves that ride.

Ended up doing Kona and then Trattoria al Forno's princess breakfast.  Kona was delicious as always

Love Kona. Don’t tell anyone in here, but I much prefer it to Ohana.

For breakfast I completely agree - for dinner, I really enjoy the sushi at Kona but ‘Ohana is just magical. People point out that you can’t get some of the items over at Kona but that seems like a selling point for ‘Ohana.

So, it’s mostly official - we are giving up our free dining trip in September to go to the beach instead.  I’m completely bummed about it but dropping 7-8k was going to be tough - we’ve had so many trips in the last year for my kids sporting events (including 2 trips to Orlando for cheer and then a week at Universal back in March.

@glvsav37 - is it possible to transfer a resort reservation?  I’ve got 2 rooms at one of the All-Star resorts that I’d happily pass to a FBG if it’s allowed.

I thought they were getting rid of it?

You were dropping 8k and staying at an all star. Something doesnt add up. We stayed for a week at Boardwalk and wasnt even half of that.

looks like he had 2 rooms, so that's prob more than 5 people, so with tix and such, I can see it getting there. 

@AAABatteries sorry to hear man. IDK about the transfer, I'm sure you can, but I would check with guest services 1st.

nope, here for a while. It is some prime MK real estate that is constantly debated over if the speedway is the best thing for that location. But with them building the Tron coaster on a previously undeveloped area behind this, I would say that someone in WDW management has a soft spot for it.

2 rooms, dining plan upgrade and week of tickets.  I think it was 6,300.  I factored in gas, food tips and souvenirs.

Yep - taking 6 people on property is the suck.  It’s why we almost always stay off property.

Ok, if they will let me transfer anybody want to take one or both?  Honestly, I don’t even care about the deposit, I just hate giving up the free dining.
