    News Eliminating Fastpass and Extra Magic Hours - confirmed as of May 28

    It was an excuse to justify getting rid of FP+, as they don’t want a second line “side by side” with the socially distanced queue. There’s too many people with DAS, child swaps and service recovery issues (ie you were in line for another ride and it broke down so here’s a pass to skip a line...

    News Eliminating Fastpass and Extra Magic Hours - confirmed as of May 28

    No, the reality is that FP+ lines will not be operational for pre-booked FPs, but most will be available for DAS (disability access), child swaps and service recovery issues. Will be much like MFSR for the first six months of operation. They do not want people going up the exits for a host of...

    I agree with you, just pointing out that that there’s precedent for skipping all of them except FoP. So anyone hoping to avoid that overlong preshow shouldn’t hold their breath..

    News Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Fwiw, the only pre-show considered "legally necessary" is always FoP and, sometimes, Dinosaur (legal prefers guests watch it). The others can be skipped - and are skipped with regularity, either during special events, tours or for other reasons. Even when high profile guests go to FoP they are...

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    What? I have no interest in trying to disprove things. I have an interest in citing facts and data, rather than unsubstantiated conjecture which turns out to be incorrect. Worthwhile to look back to see if which predictions came true vs. which did not, so as to judge the credibility or...

    News Eliminating Fastpass and Extra Magic Hours - confirmed as of May 28

    Right, it remains to be seen but all indications are they will be using the full standby queues with social distancing (this is the case in Shanghai). If that is the case, DAS will still need to function to allow those people to bypass that lengthy return queue so there is no reason the system...

    What upcharges has MM+ directly been involved with? Parties, tours, infamous cabanas, morning/evening special events, etc. None of this is related to FP+ at all.

    News Eliminating Fastpass and Extra Magic Hours - confirmed as of May 28

    Disney seems to have confirmed on the record there will be no change? https://thekingdominsider.com/confirmed-disney-worlds-disability-access-service-will/ Either way whatever system they have must include some kind of access for people who can't stand in queues, so there will be some similar...

    News Eliminating Fastpass and Extra Magic Hours - confirmed as of May 28

    Why are people assuming it will be a new system or will be removed? DAS can still function fine even if the FP lane is not operational. They were doing this at MFSR for months. They'll also need some kind of "alternate entrance" at most attractions for child swaps, service recovery issues (ie...

    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    They will return at some point, just a matter of when. Also wouldn't put it past Disney to ramp up the program sooner rather than later, then instituting layoffs/early retirement for many FT cast members. The CP is one of the smartest scams Disney has ever come up with. They pay the lowest pay...

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    Let's do a quick fact check. Should be noted that most of this is just common sense, insight gleaned from Shanghai, Iger's interviews or from media covering this.

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    Plus air travel in the US is quite sparse at the moment. Just a handful of flights a day for many airports now. Much harder/less appealing for visitors to come when they have to make 1-2 connections vs a potential non-stop flight.

    Buffets in general are problematic. Shanghai is operating them with CMs doling out the food, which just adds to the labor cost.

    News Disneyland Resort Now CLOSED Due To Coronavirus - Reopening Date Unknown

    But, as as been discussed previously, contract tracing does exist. It's existed for over a hundred years. Granted this is on a scale much larger than what we've seen previously but doesn't change the basic science of it. Good article on it and the problems we face as a country...

    News Disneyland Resort Now CLOSED Due To Coronavirus - Reopening Date Unknown

    I don't think that will be the case if we can develop, as all experts suggest, a robust contact tracing program which will help keep infections to a minimum. However, it is likely the social distancing and capacity measures are going to be here much longer than a lot of people want to admit. If...

    News Disneyland Resort Now CLOSED Due To Coronavirus - Reopening Date Unknown

    No, that's again not the case. They are smart and, again, have access to the best experts in the world. Their brand can not sustain an extended closure again caused by an outbreak of COVID-19 among guests and cast. Just the reality of things. The virus hasn't gone away - we just got bored with...

    News Disneyland Resort Now CLOSED Due To Coronavirus - Reopening Date Unknown

    That just isn't true. Do you honestly think they want to operate with masks and capacity limits? Not only does it deter people from visiting, this post-apocolytpic version of Disney with masks and health checks is terrible for their brand. They make money when the park is packed, not when it's...

    News Expose reveals WDC control in online fan community

    Look the reality is that there's a host of social media agencies and repetitional management companies that will, for a few thousand bucks a month, do exactly this kind of thing. It's their speciality. They're a dime a dozen in LA and elsewhere now. Disney may do some of this work in-house...
