    RIP - ROL

    If these were being scrapped they would be cut up and thrown in large dumpsters they wouldn't have all the set pieces still on top of them.

    Disneyland "Sunsetting" annual passes, WDW next?

    As I said on the MDE thread Disney seems to be moving away from trying to cater to the masses to wanting to cater for the "premium" sector and get more money from less people. Annual pass holders fill the parks and don't use hotels as much they tend to moan more and spend less overall. I can...

    Disneyland "Sunsetting" annual passes, WDW next?

    Disneyland has announced it is "sunsetting" annual passes and refunding everyone with a future scheme to be announced I guess sometime in the future. Could this happen at WDW where there are less passholders? What do you think the changes will be? This is an extreme move no one saw coming.

    News Evermore Orlando Resort - new billion-dollar, 10,000-room resort project is coming right next to Walt Disney World

    Looking at the site I don't see how they can fit 10k rooms unless it's tall high density blocks and keep the golf course. Do they also own the golf course across the road from their enterance behind the Disney Warehouse DC3. Looking on the map I noticed a house on its own which seems in an odd...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Let's say it costs $50m to run MDE based on my previous calculation post. Now room stats are all over the place online but I saw 36,000 hotel rooms quoted and I added up a maximum capacity of DVC rooms as 5520 so total 41,520. Let's say occupancy is 85% which is lower than some figures I have...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Does the contract with DVC mention Magical Express and any other extras? Disney has so many people locked in with it they can cut as much as they want and it would seem you have nothing you can do about it? I think DVC has played into a lot of decisions Disney has made about the parks in the...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Just working out the costs on this. Last figure I can find is 2.3m users from 2013 and I expect it increased since then. Mears offers $39 RTN from the airport to Disney. Let's say Disney pays half this cost do $19.50 that's $44,850,000 Now that's not including the bags service which is...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Because if the money keeps rolling in and they can cut the costs more they can use that money elsewhere such as Shanghai or buying the rest of DLP. The only time they really spend serious money is when they see drops in attendance which only they truly know, they spent at the studios to have an...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    It's going to be sold out for years. You misjudge the target audience and their willingness to pay for experiences. These are the exact customers Disney wants, time poor cash rich people who want something different and is more premium. People think if their personal circumstances are maybe...
