    News WDW Food and Beverage Price Increases 10/1/2019

    It's more expensive because "deluxe," which is also why the sliver of earth your car parks on is also worth more than at, say, Pop. Seems legit.

    News WDW Food and Beverage Price Increases 10/1/2019

    It does look like it will be that or Chapek, at this point. I'd just be happy with someone that truly cares about Walt Disney's legacy and the parks.

    This cannot go on forever. Just long enough for the consequences to be the next CEO's problem. Can Iger retire yet?

    Entertainment cuts

    No clue if true, but someone on Twitter said DiVine is being cut. I guess they figure that Animal Kingdom has built up enough goodwill that it's a prime property to be maimed.

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    To be fair, the tipping point for me has come in the last 2-4 years, so fairly recently. It wouldn't be hard for them to recapture a sucker like me by incentivizing with actual discounts again.

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    I realize this Econ 101, but it all comes down to value. What's it worth to the average guest. There was a time, believe it or not, when you could feel like you received a value, especially when purchasing park admission. Since then, we've (as a whole) weathered price increases and money grabs...

    You would've thought DHS just needed SWGE to open, but this is the pickle they've unintentionally found themselves in... There's too much riding on ROTR.

    News Catherine Powell's position eliminated

    So who's going to take the fall for the impending "failure" of the Star Wars resort? Which it inevitably will, if priced as expected, IMO.

    As a shareholder, you're one of the only things the weatherman actually cares about.

    News PhotoPass at some character locations being replaced by automated cameras

    While I agree these are first world problems we're talking about here, the fact remains that it's providing a worse product. And we're paying a premium for it. And they're not about to pass along the cost savings to the consumer.

    Can you say regime change? Holy crap, is this charge more for less MO getting unbearable.

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    Unequivocally, yes. What once were annual week-long stays on property with 4-5 day hoppers are now 3-4 night stays with standard 2-day tickets. And you know what? Life goes on if you don't get to every park, every year. In fact, it helps to keep things fresh. The risk Disney runs by forcing...

    I’m certain it’s coming. How else would they keep these IP “brands” relevant?

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day reports - Disney's Hollywood Studios

    This. It used to be, when they used an IP on a significant upgrade, it was an IP that was already proven to be classic/timeless. They've gotten away from that and, thus, the IP's reception may be hit and miss and/or not age well. Case in point... Zootopia. An enjoyable and cute movie, but...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day reports - Disney's Hollywood Studios

    This is exactly right. And you don’t need to be an insider to know this. It’s common sense. They put these systems in place because they expected to have to use them, not in hopes that they wouldn’t.

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day reports - Disney's Hollywood Studios

    They didn't expand the HS parking lots and entrance plaza as well as try to time Gran Destino and the gondolas with SW:GE for the worst case scenario, IMO.

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    SW:GE will not fail, but opening day was not the zoo (for any number of legitimate reasons) that the world expected it to be. They implemented a reservation system. They didn't intend for that to deter guests from coming altogether and I'd guess they didn't expect to have to drop it for WDW...

    Okay, but that would mean their reasonable determinations may have been incorrect.

    I mean, maybe? To me, it doesn't feel like any of that (besides, ya know, a hurricane lol) could move the needle for something as highly anticipated as SW:GE. It will be interesting to follow post-hurricane though.

    C'mon... This is the modern TWDC we're talking about. You truly believe they implemented these tools "just in case?" And that's not even speaking of the infrastructure improvements they've made in anticipation of atypically large crowds.
