    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    A cottager and his wife had a Hen that laid a golden egg every day. They supposed that the Hen must contain a great lump of gold in its inside, and in order to get the gold they killed her. Having done so, they found to their surprise that the Hen differed in no respect from their other hens...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I agree that not everything can or should be an omnimover or a high-capacity boat, but we're nearly 50 years later. Can't they innovate something new after all this time? Isn't that their speciality? Double decker robovehicles? Hovering minitheaters? You can see I'm full of excellent ideas...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I just watched "Behind the Attraction" for the Haunted Mansion (feeling nostalgic, I guess), and came across this: They explain that the designers realized how many people would want to ride it, so they decided to develop a system to get as many people through as possible. They had to scrap...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I mean...I guess...it's not *that* bad, considering all the wretched things it could have been. But this would have been better received if it weren't the latest of a long series of decisions that seem completely tone-deaf, anti-Disney and designed to take the "magic" out of a trip. It's so...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I won't go into all the reasons that I dislike this, because it's pretty much been covered, but it's not really the money. I just miss the old Disney. It seems that Disney management views parkgoers with thinly veiled contempt now, which is...not as fun. I think it's partially the tone deaf...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    You can really see how people prefer known dangers (even if they are quite bad) to unknown ones (even if they are incredibly unlikely). We know what the possible "what ifs" are with Covid, including death, ED, neurological damage, heart damage, lung damage, mental issues, and more. We know...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    There are times that a go-it-alone, individualistic mindset can be an asset, but for the challenges that currently stand before us (and Covid is just one of them), we need collective action. There's no way to get a personal vaccine against climate change, for instance. I don't know how to...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    A lot of people want vaccines to be something that individuals get to protect themselves, so that it's an individual choice. This is the lens that they view everything with. "If the vaccines work, why do you care what I do?" / etc. This is the case in many countries but is really prominent in...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Well. I just got a text informing me that a family member in central FL who was supposed to have a cardiovascular procedure today had to postpone it for several weeks because the hospital cannot handle it. Too many Covid patients. This isn't bunion removal or something; it's pretty serious...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Yes, I think the way that NJ did the math, you could also say, there are 150 million unvaccinated Americans (just for sake of argument). 600,000 unvaccinated people have died of Covid. Therefore, the efficacy of *un-vaccination* is (600K / 1.5M = .004) 99.6% effective against dying from Covid...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    An epidemiologist on NPR stated that the best estimates for the current Pfizer/Moderna vaccines against Delta (excluding mild/moderate cases) are between 70 and 90 percent efficacy. So it's nowhere near the 99.99% numbers that the NJ government is touting. It's not impossible that 40% of...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Vaccine passports sound great, but I think you are underestimating the level of resistance to any kind of government intervention here. Certain corners of the media are probably drooling over the idea of how much outrage they could generate if we took that route. It would be the first clear...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    So many times I have seen people say "if it's my time to go, it's my time to go" when considering the relatively low risk of death from the virus. I wish we had more media spotlight on the long covid clinics being set up around the country...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Anxiety about the vaccines, I understand. I was literally shaking when I got the vaccine. Twice. I have learned over the years that I have to make these kinds of decisions based on facts/logic rather than what my brain (which is trying to be helpful but is often quite a jerk about it) is...

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    Wow, I hope this speculation about moving to a microtransactions-style system is wrong. The main thing that strikes me is how *tacky* it feels. Even more tacky than my local amusement park, and that's saying something. I'm older, so I recognize that younger people might be more used to...
