    That says a lot for the mentality of the people Disney hires.

    Sadly, I waited 3.5 hours for Paint the Night on vacation (530pm, the parade rolled by me at 905pm). This was at the advice of an APer- and thankfully they did- shortly after we got to our spot, every spot around was filled (and we weren't on the curb- we were already 1 back). The location was the tip board...will I again? Never...but unfortunately that's the way it goes in DL- I was shocked to see how people wait (but I have to remember the mentality of Disneyland is very different for residents vs visitors, much like Cedar Point for me).

    I saw the Tokyo camping out in December first hand.
    In the park at 8:20am , people setting up camp around the hub for a 12:30pm parade.

    It's a bad stereotype on both sides. We know most people are not like that.

    Of course, you would never call someone something as shocking and horrific as that when complaining to fellow co-workers would you?

    I don't argue that people in general are entitled no matter where you are in this world, but I don't think anyone here can really say legitimately what percentage of AP holders are vs regular guests.

    Doesn't matter anyway. There are still tons of people, mostly APers, who are clogging up the parks all day long, taking up space, and now they're going to freak out because Disney has finally found a way to make it fair.

    A professional would not ever do that. To know they do that to their customers behind their backs is uncalled for. If management knew that they would be out faster than you can say Mickey Mouse.

    Just know that if a CM ever refers to you as a "treasured guest", you've become a problem.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some managers described APs in a similar manner amongst their own ranks. After all we're all human and it's kind of unreasonable to think that nobody at Disneyland Resort, from the top on down, hasn't said something negative about customers in private.

    Honestly, I'm hoping that once SWL is opened Disney jacks up the price of an AP enough to eliminate a large contingency. Or that they revamp the AP so that park entry is limited to a certain number per year. Also, eliminate the payment plan.

    A lot of people claim that Disney relies on the AP's, but I don't think that's true anymore. At least not for DLR.

    No real news on live stream. They did constantly emphasise the end date however.

    Not at all.

    Managers are most likely complaining about guests to other managers and cast members too.

    Last time I was at DLR, I watched a manager trying to diffuse an argument between 2 groups of guests. The spokesperson for one group kept mentioning that they were Annual Passholders, as if that gave them special rights.
    After watching that exchange, I could understand why some AP holders are called Pass Holes, even by management.

    APs can be pains in the arses, but so can the guests who aren't. It's a two-way street.

    It appears that some of the pixie trials have started getting removed from some of the floats in the parade. It's kept with the Tinker Bell,Snow White,Pinocchio and America floats though.

    It's more notable in this video.
