    News Mickey Shorts Theater Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Optimistic about it being exclusive but then they mention clips from other shorts which makes me hope this isn't one of those "best of" things like they used to do on TV when they needed to pad out a new episode where 10% is new content of them talking about what they remember and the rest is...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    For my family, it's a combination of nostalgia for the adults and kid-friendly attractions for the kids that can also be enjoyed to at least some degree, by adults. Those other three you mention fail big-time on that last point. Sea World has upped their game a bit with the new Sesame Street...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    If this is the case, someone should probably tell Disney because they're wasting an awful lot of money, then. ;) Believe it or not, there are plenty of people out there that don't know Disney has opened anything new having to do with Star Wars. I live in Florida where the number of friends and...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    I don't care that it isn't booked to capacity because lots of low value fastpasses go unused and neither should you. In an ideal world, neither should Disney since this is evidence that these attractions probably shouldn't have it to begin with but again, Disney is padding the system with these...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    No. Adding more attractions and marketing them to kingdom-come increases attendance. Toy Story Land did not need a Superbowl spot the year it opened in a park that was low on things for guests to do even with the addition of two attractions, neither of which were e-tickets. ... and yet it got...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    I'm curios what problem you think the current fastpass system is trying to resolve? I say that because I'm not talking about anything fastpass it attempting to "fix". I’m talking about how adding popular attraction capacity can help solve some of the problems that fastpass+ seems to have had a...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    Then why did you say "Disney has never been and will never be a destination that you could just spontaneously visit for a day or two and have a great time." if you yourself are now saying you know it once was? Why is it "garbage" for people to discuss that? And honestly, I wouldn't say...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    Ah, I forgot about LTT! That one we used to never have a problem getting into, even at mealtime! I actually thought maybe it wasn't that popular because of that but I guess compared to the castle, it makes sense where demand would flow. That said, a party of 10 being able to do it is...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    BigThunderMatt, I'm curious when you started going to Disney and what time of year because, yes, it once was possible. King Stephan's (before they changed the name to match the castle), Golden Horseshoe (when it had real food the first time around) in the MK, San Angel Inn (back when tables...

    Walt Disney World annual pass price increases now in effect (February 2020)

    My guess would be some are saving for many years and most are using credit cards for their big once-in-a-lifetime trips. I have to wonder after it's all said and done, how many of them consider the total experience worth it. After all, the parks are fun but California Grill isn't that good and...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    Looking at the building, I'm assuming that long stretch in the back is guest rooms and the larger square space will the the "show building" and that a lot of what happens in that front building is where the guest spend is going. I think if demand far outstrips capacity, we'll see the price...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    This is a "boutique" resort. It doesn't have that many rooms to fill which is why they can get away with crazy pricing. They don't care if they price most people out, really. They wouldn't have room for "most" people, anyway.

    Can't help but notice that concept art has droids and aliens in it... 🙃

    News Short refurbishment planned for the Swiss Family Treehouse later this year

    You're right that it's not ADA compliant and that it doesn't do much for guest capacity but relative to amost all other attractions, it takes up very little space and also works as a fantastic set piece for Adventure Land, even if you never go up it. If they were to remove this, what do you...
