    Disney offering up to $1000 sign on bonuses

    Right. Prices never went up at Disney until this recent atrocity of almost paying people enough to not live in their cars or crappy motels.

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    For sure. This is obviously a very rough estimate but if 40 boarding groups are given out in around 40 seconds, that's one second per group. Still, there was a party of 4 right behind me going in, although they probably call a few groups right away so those folks may not have been in group #1...

    Coronavirus impact on DVC

    I doubt the current availability is due to people not having enough points. It's mainly people afraid to travel and electing to push trips later into 2021 which is furthering the problem of having too many points in the system, hence the borrowing restriction. Heck, the people who had 2018...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Beginner's luck. It was my first time ever trying! I was on the in-park wifi which seemed pretty fast.

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I was in boarding group 1 today. I think myself and one guy in front of me were the first 2 into the attraction for the day. Made it into the hanger, by the time I got towards the interrogation room, was informed the attraction was down and was then escorted out and given a fastpass to return...

    The Red Button Option

    Price is always a factor. If they offered a big enough discount, people would come. Maybe not full capacity but there would be more. The fact that there's no room discount other than APs is telling. Does it say "That was easy!" when you press it? If so, I'll take 2.

    The Red Button Option

    Somehow I feel like it's intentional. They know how to manage promos and offer them all the time. If they wanted to encourage sales, they could easily reinstate the summer fun & sun (or whatever it was called) promo. Sure, and to experience it with historically low crowds, too. I saw the...

    Predictions on when evening hours and nighttime shows can resume?

    I'd think something like Fantasmic would be easier to spread people out vs. standing in a walkway or open viewing area. Shows with designated seating are a lot easier to crowd control.

    Predictions on when evening hours and nighttime shows can resume?

    I'll report it from newsmax, townhall, the daily wire... All the finest sources of real data and unbiased scientific facts.

    Do you think that Disney world will reclose its gates due to the rising number of COVID cases in Florida and around the country?

    I spent 5 days around July 4th in Destin, and for those unaware, there is no pandemic on the Panhandle. Well, at least that's how 95% of people act there. I saw maybe a dozen people (besides myself) with a face mask on inside the hotel. People had no problem just cramming into the indoor hot...

    Do you think that Disney world will reclose its gates due to the rising number of COVID cases in Florida and around the country?

    This post is not going to age well. The infection rate just spiked in the past 2 weeks. That number will certainly catch up. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. 🤞

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I'd struggle not to LOL if someone told me that!

    What's Still On and What's Now Off

    They could deploy a few of the touchscreen kiosks for those without a device or who still prefer to check in at the resort.
