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

    Thank you. Worked out OK. Ended up with group 70 so we had several hours. Only downside was that our group opened up just as the above mentioned torrential downpour occurred. We waited about 25 minutes under cover but got impatient, made a run for it, got soaked but loved the attraction. The...

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

    Looking for some advice. First time ever attempting to get a boarding group. We have a reservation for DHS on Sunday. We live about an hour and a half away now. Should we just wait and try for the 1 p.m.? Don't really want to get there incredibly early and not get a position. And also don't...

    New CDC Guidance Clarification

    obviously quite late to this but we were in several shows where people were escorted out by security for refusing to listen to the folks with the mask signs. I actually thought they were doing a pretty decent job. I guess it depended on the day.

    Discriminated against FOR wearing a mask ?

    Still several people wearing masks in the parks including the cast. Plus you have to wear them indoors. (As of right now)

    Fastpass returning June 1st???

    Oh, I definitely know what is happening. But we also don't pick attractions with long waits for our non-FP experiences. We take in some shows and pick the near walk ons. We're pretty much in and out of the park in 3 or 4 hours and then head to eat somewhere or shop around Orlando and make the...

    Fastpass returning June 1st???

    We were able to get our expired APs renewed recently. I’ had never experienced a non fastpass WDW. Our first visits in 2010 still had the ticket machine FPs. It is AMAZING just how quickly the lines move for the omni mover rides and many others. BUT even with that being true, as a Local, we...

    AP Refund Watch

    Trying to use the search function for info and landed here in this thread. We let our Florida resident APs expire in August (First time not having an AP since 2012). Now we are considering returning to the parks and saw some folks had luck calling and still being able buy new. I called yesterday...

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    I'm local but I just cannot imagine someone wanting to spend the amount of money a WDW vacation costs to visit under these restrictions and limited park access. And that's nothing against Disney. Save your money for a safer, more enjoyable time.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Well, now I know that a global pandemic is what it takes for me to get my first Passholder email in 8 years. So many ride previews missed.

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

    I really need to find the beginning of this argument. But it probably won't be fulfilling.

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Great breakdown! Agree about Hux. He was the spy, but it was for selfish reasons, so he still didn’t end up redeemable imo. We’re likely going to see again this weekend. My wife (who loves to root for bad guys) is still devastated about Kylo. But I’m not. I liked his character, but a mass...

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Just saw it today. I enjoyed it quite a lot. But I’m not the type of fan that my whole identity relies on Star Wars being perfect. I fully admit that my thoughts wouldn’t carry that much weight among most of you. It would be interesting to see some more opinions in this thread. It seems to be...

    SPOILERS: The Mandalorian S1 Chapter 6

    Even for this guy it was a little distracting. Especially since her brother didn't act the same. Loved the episode overall. I also really like Bill Burr in general.
