    How much would you pay????

    Per person, per day, including park admission? I think you have a pretty solid number. I would not go above $400.

    Expensive yes, Crowded yes, Cast Members unpleasant, haven't seen it yet.

    I have never seen an outright rude staffer at WDW. I have seen a few goof-offs, and I saw one person having just a really bad day. Super grumpy, but not really projecting it. I assumed she just got some really bad news of some kind, and low wage jobs being what they are, I suspect there is no...

    Old Ladies & Minnie Ears

    I may have to try this, and talk in my Mickey voice.

    Old Ladies & Minnie Ears

    It's no weirder than wearing a Halloween costume on Halloween, dressing up at a comic con, or donning a StarTrek uniform at a StarTrek convention. Emphasis on "no" weirder, as in, less weird.

    Is this the new standard and am I the only one who sees it?

    I don't know if this is true, but it makes good sense. I would certainly use this tool if I were in charge. I spend a lot of time on GM auto forums and I know for a fact GM is on there. Some of their top brass (in engineering), and middle brass, make their presence known from time to time. I...

    Is this the new standard and am I the only one who sees it?

    Wow, yea, I am not on the same page as most folks. At a low pay job where customer safety is not a concern, I could care less if a staffer uses their cell phones a little while between customers. In fact, I am happy for what few little perks they have in an otherwise thankless job. Having a...

    What do you call us???

    I don't go enough to qualify. ...but Dizzies certainly works.

    Magic Kingdom Looks Its Age

    We would get rid of the pay phones where I work. ...except they are still regularly used. Go figure. ...and then there are fax machines.... :p

    The fallacy of overcrowded parks......

    Airline deregulation, I remember that now. I'm guessing a 70% reduction in ticket prices from the mid to early 80's? That would offset the park ticket price for sure. I didn't think about the airflight differential because we could not afford it. We drove for 2.5 days each way. :oops:

    The fallacy of overcrowded parks......

    Is that true? I am not saying you're wrong, I just always thought the opposite to be true. Do you know for a fact or are you postulating? Tickets in 1986 were $26. Tickets in 2020 are ~$110. Adjusted for inflation that would be ~$60 today. So, I think that Disney Parks actually cost twice as...

    The fallacy of overcrowded parks......

    Overcrowded is in most cases an opinion. For me, overcrowded is... Ride lines over 15 minutes long Food lines over 30 minutes long Bus lines over 30 minutes long Walking half speed over half the time because you are blocked left, right, and forward by masses of people Any mass of people that...

    What's the max amount of time you could spend at WDW without getting bored?

    Oh good point. I have never been blessed enough to be away from home long enough to be homesick, but now that you mention it, I would eventually get there. Not sure when. 3 months maybe.
