    What's deflated your WDW enthusiasm the most: Pandemic or Genie+

    Yeah, Genie+ definitely killed it for us. Creating an 'optional' paid service, that is not really going to be optional if you want to enjoy your stay is an epic eye-roll. Now, we'll have to pay up for Genie+ or use the DAS for our son and that's just an entire other process. As if families with...

    If Disney wants to "lower Attendance" then Build a 5th Park..

    Given the rising costs of construction (and pretty much everything else) and the workforce shortages, this isn't happening anytime soon.

    Was Disney World better years ago? Your thoughts.

    I've only been going to WDW since 2014 and it's only gotten more chaotic and more expensive with every trip. We haven't been there since 2018, because our 2020 trip was cancelled.

    What would it take for you to NOT go back?

    Well....that aged well. At least we got to visit a few times. Was nice while it lasted and was kind of affordable.

    What would it take for you to NOT go back?

    If fastpass never returns. Neither will we. The crowd levels need to chill out as well. Just can't do the crazily overcrowded thing having a family member with an ASD.

    Disney Labor Shortage

    The $300 'handout' (which, by the way, is just your tax dollar being given back to you), is a moot point. Why would you want to employ that type of person in the first place?

    Disney Labor Shortage

    You ever think of quitting that dead-end job to do something meaningful with your life, but you just cant manage to take the leap? Well, Covid pushed a lot of those people off that proverbial cliff via job losses, family deaths, pure fear or simple YOLO. Those people are not coming back. Many...

    Changes in the last 2 years that burn your britches

    I'm going to miss the Epcot fountain the most. Rivers of Light changes, then cancellation....don't get me started.

    Motion Sickness - How Do You Prepare / Prevent it?

    My girlfriend just won't do those rides because of the motion sickness. I kinda tricked her into Everest (she now calls it Neverest). She won't even go on Soarin'. Plenty of slow rides for her to ride though.

    Streaming The Magic - Facebook Page

    Got people pulling in millions to stream video games on line. Not sure why this would exactly shock anyone. It's not particularly easy to build a solid viewership that turns a profit doing these things.

    Rivers of Light closing

    Thankfully, I saw it before Disney neutered it. It was a great show at one time. There are some good HD videos of the original show on Youtube.

    In what ways will COVID-19 change how you vacation at Disney?

    If I'm being direct. It won't affect how I vacation at Disney World, because we will not be going to Disney World until a vaccine is available or Florida gets their collective heads out of their ***.

    Should WDW open?

    This. There are lots of rules, but very little accountability occurring. I honestly don't even know what mechanism is being used to enforce the rules here in Pennsylvania. Local law enforcement wants nothing to do with it, that's for sure.

    I have a feeling we're all going to have different interpretations of the word 'manageable' when it comes to queue times.

    Disney Springs testing new no-stop security scanner for new entry screening when the parks reopen

    God, I hope this works. As awful as this situation has been, some of the amazing innovations and tech coming as a result, are very welcome.
