    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    There are valid reasons for WDW to open as quickly as possible. There are valid reasons to remain closed for the foreseeable future. Like many companies (and countries), Disney's corporate leaders are not of one mindset. Different factions within Disney are jockeying for different opening...

    Why Walt Disney World Needs a 5th Theme Park By 2025

    Disney seems content to work with partners to construct hotels. Consider the Swan/Dolphin addition and third party hotels going into Flamingo Crossing. Those companies invest the capital, Disney collects part of the revenue.

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

    It will be interesting to see how Disney handles RotR at Disneyland Resort (DLR). Guests who have purchased Premium Annual Passes have paid extra for no blockout dates. IMO, it's improper to institute RotR quotas for these Annual Pass Holders (APH). I acknowledge the merits of your idea but...

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

    The last time I was blown away by a Walt Disney World (WDW) attraction was 1994 when I first experienced Tower of Terror (TOT). Requoting something I wrote in 2016: Tower of Terror is one of those special treats rarely found at theme parks. Even before entering Disney Hollywood Studios, you...

    The greatest fault is that Disney created the most amazing attraction ever offered within a theme park! :D Everyone wants to experience it again and again!

    Yes, today is the first day of 2020 that Gold Annual Pass holders can use their tickets. Today and weekends could be especially busy at DHS for a while.

    You will NOT lose your Boarding Group if you leave Disney Hollywood Studios. We have done this twice.

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

    The problem with using FP+ for RotR is one of ride capacity. Flights of Passage (FOP) has been open for years and yet still is a difficult FP+ to get, even for onsite Guests. For example, I was unable to get any FOP FP+ for the first 3 days of my most recent onsite stay. Despite checking for...

    Finished our second time on RotR. Truly remarkable. Calling it a "ride" or an "attraction" is a disservice. It really is an experience.

    58. We had plans to go to the Magic Kingdom (MK) in the morning, so we arrived at about 6:25 after walking from Boardwalk Villas (BWV). The walk took 12 minutes, including getting through security. Once we entered the line to get into Disney's Hollywood Studios (DHS), it took another 27...

    MDE states that Boarding Groups 121 and above will be called only if there is capacity for more riders. Looks like Disney's way of not comping these Guests if they don't make it on the attraction.
