    Trip Report Making Lemonade out of Lemons Fractal Family Trip Report - Completed

    Seems wild that this trip report was a trip before sending Toni off to Clemson and here we are after the school year. Even a pandemic can't stop time from flying by. Great pictures as always!

    News Disney to relax mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks - April 8 2021

    I'm not sure I would read that as only decreasing spread by 1.8%, although maybe you do mean the same thing as the study. If you do, then I argue that 1.8% is significant. Quoting the JAMA article linked under "Related Materials" [1]: "Because the percentage point decreases (for mask mandates)...

    Trip Report The ONE with the Bowl that was not so Super 🚽 2/5-2/9, 2021*COMPLETED*

    So many drinks. But I'm pretty sure these grapefruit beers are only 2% ABV so that had to help a tiny bit. Really enjoying your report!

    Trip Report Making Lemonade out of Lemons Fractal Family Trip Report - Completed

    Let me be the 7,354th person to commend you on your report and pictures. It took a long time for me to finish thanks to life (mostly work), but I definitely was not interested in rushing through it! My wife is a much more amateur photographer but really enjoys the hobby. I'll have to get some...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    While that is definitely the right move for usability during the fastest fingers lottery, I hope Disney's servers are up to the challenge. Without caching in the app, there are potentially going to be more requests hitting servers -- especially from 7:59 to 8:01. They probably figure it's...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    @DCBaker what are you going to do with all the extra time in your day? Feels like you might be able to start a new business and when you write a book about how you became successful you can point back to ROTR going on hiatus. Seriously though, thanks to you and all the others in this thread...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    In addition to the other responses, I would suggest that the biggest benefit to putting everyone in one group is that you are then stacking all of your "lottery entries". In other words, I'd much rather have 4 adults trying to get a BG for me than 2. If 2 of them have phone or app issues, one...

    All guaranteed disneygeek90 out of city requests have been given away. Only back ups remain. No word yet if fast passes are given when disneygeek90 dumps the queue. Still gathering reliability stats...

    The best way to answer #1 and #4 is to...uh...practice from home at 8am ET. Just don't click past the screen where you select the members of your group in case today's issue repeats :) You'll get familiar with the screens and who the app recognizes is associated with your account and when you...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I agree on the skyliner. We stayed at art of animation and it was a great way to get to/from Hollywood and Epcot... except for the operating hours. Doesn't run early enough in the morning for BGs and stopped running before we left after our late cantina time. But if you are staying at either...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    How early did you get to the park to be first for slinky dog? I was amazed how many people were already lined up for toy story land both mornings I was there. We actually planned to do slinky first but the line was so long to start that we bailed for toy story mania since we had slinky fast pass...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Finally posting after our (family of 4) trip this past week. I'm very thankful for all of the reports and advice on this board. I followed it for at least a month before going and while it made me a little nervous to know about all the issues, I definitely was well prepared. My wife and I...
