Sand, yes!  Just utility/work to get around the property and move stuff.

for sure IMHO that is,  polaris ranger, that is their utility model as I said,  500cc or bigger, maybe 800cc?  Rangers have been around for years, and you should be able to find a used one with low hours...  just  have to "shop" around.

Sell the golf cart, they are bringing decent money for good used..

I suggest staying away from John Deere, Kubota, Kawasaki,  they are very proud of their paint.

Thanks!  Might be hard to sell my golf cart around here in Golf Cart Land! Mine was used on flat land for gardening, firewood, yard work, etc. on 3 acres.

I hope you get lots of responses, Sand.  I need to trade in my golf cart for a Kubota or something similar.  I'm no longer a flat lander, and that golf cart won't help getting around any longer.

If your talking work/utility vehicle. 
Polaris ranger is the way I would go.
A 500cc or bigger will do a lot of work, or cruise around easily..

I'd rather see Miracle on 34th St. than Christmas Around the World.  At this point, it doesn't sound too exciting. If this really happens, I think guests that only have time to see one play will choose Dickens over Around the World which will make Dickens much more crowded.

There's sort of a concrete block channel going up.  I'll look closer next time I drive by.

Just a reminder that the PR department does not do things on Willow’s timeline and there is a lot of season left. 

 ::) ::) Nor do they operate on yours Swoosh, as evidenced by the multiple rumors and things you've had wrong over the last several years.  smh

Give it a break! sir willow is just adding to a conversation that most of us are interested in, and most of us are interested in what he has to say whether it's speculation or not.  Let's all play nicely! Good grief!

Just FYI they refilled our $1 mugs yesterday without any issues.

So much for the memo  :)

Seriously!  I'll try mine at yet another vendor this week if I can drag the hubs away, and see what happens. We're finally moving into our new house!

Earlier this summer, they were looking for volunteers that want to volunteer in a fun environment.  ;D

Branson Center Stage would be my first choice!  I finally gave them a try this summer since they can offer a safe gluten free meal, and it's become my favorite place to eat. On occasion , I see a table get up and leave probably because of slow service, but I haven't really experienced that.  Everything is made from scratch, so it will take a few extra minutes, but , holy cow, everything I've had is great. Thanksgiving menu was talked about at the restaurant last night, so I'm sure you can probably find it online.

  I guess the place can no longer be called American owned, at least it does not appear to me to be.  She was very upset and frustrated by the number of hours they are making her work and they are now charging her to live on the property, yet require her to as they never let her off work.  As we were heading out to dinner we say some of the guys from the group who were the owners walking across the street to the one that is across and just up the road a bit, the Brickhouse something or other I believe.  I would assume they also own that one.  When we got back from dinner we brought KD some food from Florentino's.  That seemed to have made her day.  I really feel sorry for her.

Is that even legal to require a person to work that many hours, not leave the premises, yet charge to live there?  I think that's called slavery.  I hope she get out of there soon.

Sounds like SDC is about to get their own new area similar to dollywood. Waterboggin footprint and Employee parking lot.

Bad News for Flooded Mine?

Highly doubt it.  I've heard some interesting rumors from the craftspeople that I never saw come to pass.  We know that they are redoing the festival event next year, as evidenced by the departure of the Wild West Show and a few other small changes they've announced.  It's very possible they're just completely reworking how they're gong to do that whole event.

But if they were doing a major remodel of an area of the park, you can bet they would have announced it and been milking it for all it's worth already.  That's not the kind of thing they are going to do under the radar and not say anything about.  Remember how early the hints were dropping about Christmas in Midtown- a full year before it happened.  They're not going to have a major project like that go by and nothing even hinted until a quiet rumor 6 months from when it would be complete.

Which is also why I laugh every time certain people start talking about the redone entrance and moving it or Echo Hollow.  Again things that the PR department isn't going to keep hidden.

Good to hear that, Sir Willow!  I hope you're right.

Talked to a couple of vendors we always stop and talk with who told us that they were told they aren't being invited back next year.

Is this due to them not having this festival next year or they just don't want the outside vendors?

You know, I'm not really sure.  I didn't want to ask too many questions when it was brought up.  The two that spoke about not coming back were in the Frisco Barn.  One mentioned that the entire back of the park was in for a remodel, but not sure how he would know that.

I’m going to be that guy... if 50˘ is going to break the bank for you, maybe SDC isn’t the place for you to visit?

LOL...  And I am the other guy..

1.25 refills for as long as have the refill mug...  SHOULD be just that.. 1.25.
Now is this going to break me.... No
Is this going to piss me off? I will never be back.....  No

But if you DIDNT want to refill them "forever", you should probably not have marketed them that way.  ::) ::)

Exactly! And, I rarely use mine, and, I'm very certain I will always be able to afford to visit the city.  ::)

I asked about that, too, and was told all refills $1.75 regardless of mug.  New policy...
