    Is there any news on the Epcot monorail?

    Just tossing out the ride time one way on the EPCOT loop is 15 minutes, which is the standard exposure duration for the vast majority of contract tracing programs. It could just be that Disney has chosen to remove a situation that would have an elevated transmission risk. Once the train is in...

    News Disney to relax mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks - April 8 2021

    There are compelling reasons why governments and organizations deal in macro instead of micro risk mitigation strategies. The idea that individuals can make a choice to remain vulnerable to COVID without larger consequence is complete fiction. Do a quick read on externalities. This is one of the...

    News Disney to relax mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks - April 8 2021

    I would not be so sure. Disney is moving at its own speed. They are not getting nudged along by anything but their own business needs. I think people vastly overestimate how much Disney wants to get rid of masks. They could have done it already in Florida if they really wanted to do it. The...

    News Disney to relax mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks - April 8 2021

    ^THIS. Blanket rules make compliance and enforcement easier. And I have said this many times: At least in FL, if Disney wanted less restrictions they would have them. They would have the political cover from the governor as well as have significant lobbying ability. They have chosen to work...

    Called again today. Two hours of phone time. Still zero clarity on when the check will mail. The case has been in escalated status since February apparently (not seeming to do much good lol). I was once again assured it should mail "soon". Everyone is being so, so nice on the phone, and I am...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    This is a really good summation of why I think the middle ground is so hard to find anymore in the Disney fan community. I think just about everyone recognizes there has been a decline in quality but is divided about the "why". What you state right here is the real reason many fans perceive such...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    I know (or at least really suspect) this is sarcasm, but the best interactions I have had at Disney are moments when cast members differentiated themselves by showing their personality - from a late night sing along on the bus ride home to a more raucous than typical cruise in the jungle to a HM...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    Does anyone know if religious head coverings are a new option or was that already allowed? I do not personally recall ever seeing a CM with a head covering until these photo examples, but I can't tell if this is new policy or not.

    News Disney to relax mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks - April 8 2021

    To this point - Disney could likely get any looser restrictions it wanted. It would have political cover in the state. It has intentionally decided not to do so. The company is being more conservative (not the political meaning of the word) than it is being forced to be. In fact, this is...

    Return of onsite conferences - tracking thread

    We are all following indicators around hotels reopening, attendance caps and patterns, departure of Pop Warner, pro-sports bubbles, etc., so I thought we might start to crowdsource onsite conference announcements as an indicator of a return to "normal" business operations. You do not...

    6 weeks. Just got off the phone. I am still in the exception pile. Has not moved since Feb 2. On the one hand, good to know it is not lost in the mail a second time. On the other hand.... it has been 15 weeks since the first failed check was issued.
