    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    Except that the transportation to the park is part of the experience - from space port to space port the riders will never see WDW in between.

    Return to normality tracker

    Fantasmic and the Parades are plagued by labor shortages right now. They simply don't have the actors and live show folks to make them functional. Many of the folks who do those shows have moved on to other jobs in Orlando, or they moved home during the pandemic to Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin...

    News Disney Park Pass System announced for Walt Disney World theme park reservations

    Its because you can park hop there without a reservation. Throughout most of the reservation debacle, Epcot is available except on weekends, and even then you check in the afternoon and there are reservations available. It's the last park anyone currently picks because you go to a different park...

    Disney After Hours BOO BASH

    I live literally three minutes away from Walt Disney World and I see what happens there from night to night. Almost all my neighbors work for Disney (I do not). Above and beyond general post hours events, there are a lot of people locally who have normally had annual passes who haven't stepped...

    Disney After Hours BOO BASH

    This is not a previous after hours party. They've had trouble selling tickets to previous after hours parties.

    Disney After Hours BOO BASH

    I think you are grossly misestimating the ticket sales for a sold-out night at Boo Bash. MNSSHP has historically been one of their best-selling evening events. Entire families and friends groups book resorts to go specifically for the costume party, and I suspect the same thing has happened for...

    News Magic Kingdom and Epcot Fireworks to Resume July 1st

    While I am not sure exactly when the nighttime shows are coming back, I know that almost all the nighttime staff at all 4 parks have been recalled to work - there is a minimum two week gap between re-onboarding them and actually doing the shows. I think the July 1 estimates to bring the...

    Chicken Guy to open new location with drive-thru in Winter Park near to Walt Disney World

    Not for nothing, I think these articles are written by folks who do not live in Florida -- Winter Park is NOWHERE near WDW.

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    I have never seen Universal as packed as it has been the past month -- and the same for SeaWorld (a particular favorite place of mine) -- and part of that is because they don't have any mask rules in place and it has increased the local attendance there specifically because you DON'T need masks...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    Just from a locals point of view - I live in a very highly Disney-oriented affluent area about 5 minutes from the parks. Disney's reluctance to remove the indoor mask requirement is absolutely driving business away from the parks until they do -- and with that, it means a lot of money normally...

    News Goodbye to The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra

    I know its always sad, but I think people just don't get what's happening at WDW right now. Except for a few rare days, the parks are near-empty. Even with caps, they are getting terrible turnout. The "live shows" that have been added have been pulling in maybe 20-25 people per show...the...

    Would you visit Walt Disney World with these health-based operational restrictions in place?

    Not to mention that Orange County has no mask rules, so nobody here wears them unless you are inside a grocery store, and then only because they make you wear them. This system won't work at WDW.

    Would you visit Walt Disney World with these health-based operational restrictions in place?

    Because of the very limited number of guests that will be able to enter you won't get that normal crowding in. Most likely they won't be opening all of the resorts, just the ones that they can best accommodate transportation needs to the parks, with limited bus occupancy and drop off's timed...
