    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Isn’t this a classic straw man? Society isn’t remotely close to being shut down. And mask or vaccine mandates aren’t the equivalent of that, either.

    News Expedition Everest refurbishment in 2022

    Nothing says WDW 50th birthday celebration like an extended closure of a big E-ticket.

    News Walt Disney World to resumes sales of Annual Passes September 8th

    Gotcha. Wish they’d just call it a seasonal weekday pass, in that case. I’m a fan of weekday APs for locals, but it all depends on job schedule, proximity, etc. Still seems more reasonably priced compared to the higher APs.

    In that case the $399 pass isn’t that badly priced. The Fl resident 4-day pass that they’ve offered for limited times in the past is over $200. Once you add four days of parking, paying $399 for most of the year seems reasonable.

    No mention of free parking, right? Are they going to charge for every level of AP? That would be a dealbreaker for some locals.

    I hope the UF model is right and Florida’s numbers will gradually start falling, but I don’t know how they could accurately model schools opening, and colleges starting (just this week). Hook-up COVID’s gonna be a thing.

    Sorry, the governor and his cronies are busy threatening school districts who have mask requirements. Because, y'know, that's a good use of resources.

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    There's a lot they could build -- but they'd have to refrain from marketing everything like an E-ticket. The old 90s Lion King show in Fantasyland is a good example; very few people would plan trips just to see something like that, but it adds capacity, entertainment value, and fills out a park...

    It's likely they'll dramatically reduce the amount of spots for the virtual queue, effectively making those rides (or Rise, at least) a pay-to-ride situation.

    It means there's less chance of getting on Rise of the Resistance if you're an off-site/local/day guest. So in that sense, it's a perk for those staying on property.

    The AP value just took a major hit, probably by design. Local APs don’t like waiting in long standby lines, and now you’re telling them to pay every time they go if they want to avoid those lines? Also pretty incredible that they’d charge CMs for this when they use comp admission. Should do...

    I have a (bad) feeling colleges are going to be a bigger story this time around, too.

    Is there any guesstimate on what percentage of day guests are getting to ride? Are we talking 50%?

    Yeah, thanks. I meant the attraction that paying guests aren't allowed to queue up for.
