    News 'Disney Enchantment' fireworks dessert parties coming soon to Magic Kingdom

    If they were doing it from the Main Street train station, I would consider it. We did an after party the first time we saw HEA and the Plaza Garden area was nice and not packed in like sardines, with a great view of the castle projections. But with the new show, you’ll miss all the projections...

    Is the Magic Band selection going to get any better?

    Not only is the selection in MDE bad, but it’s not much better on Disney Store.com either. Are they having supply issues or are they just not going to carry many?

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    Exactly. I’m 61 and I’ve never seen all of SotS. My kids are in their 30’s and have never seen any of it and don’t know the characters. But they loved the ride because it was a water ride with a big drop. It is visually iconic, but that his very little, if anything, to do with the movie. Time...

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

    Haven’t done a BG since park reservations became a thing - do you need a park reservation for that park if your BG is later in the day, or can you park hop there?

    News Disney Very Merriest After Hours

    They have not posted park hours yet for Nov and Dec. I am SPECULATING that they will close the park to day guests sometime around 8pm or after the DE fireworks to give them time to clear out before the after hours event officially starts. Remember, day guests who are in line for an attraction at...

    News Disney Very Merriest After Hours

    I believe Disney’s Most Merriest starts at 9pm and ends at 1am. We have tickets for Dec 10 and that’s the hours for that night

    Magic Band vs Apple watch

    Curious to hear from those who have tried using your Apple Watch in place of a Magic Band. Does it work as well as Disney says it should? Trying to minimize my he amount of “bands” I need to wear!

    News Disney Very Merriest After Hours

    When we went to MVMCP in 2019 the park closed to day guests at 6pm and the party didnt officially start until 7pm. With DVMAH not starting until 9pm and them doing DE, I’m speculating DE will be at 7:45ish and park closure to day guests will be right after that at 8:00ish - but that’s just...

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

    IMO 30 min is barely enough time to walk from the gate to one attraction. By the time you’re done with that you might be able to get into one other line. I’m thinking more about the 2 extra hours after closing, which is now only for those staying at the deluxe resorts instead of all Disney...

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

    And SO many freebies taken away and price increases in a very short time: Magical Express Extra Magic Hours MNSSHP to Boo Bash MVMCP to Very Merriest Genie+ and IAS And we don’t know about shows or character meet and greets “Welcome back from the pandemic! Now take out your wallets and show us...

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

    I remember breaking my neck to get to the parks at rope drop, running to the FP kiosks with hundreds of other, standing in the long kiosk line, only to find out all the FPs are gone for the day. I wouldn’t count on “plenty availability” for the rides you really need a FP for.

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

    Right. But the most popular tier 2s are going to book up fast, which will leave you with the least popular ones being available - the ones that you can pretty much walk on anyway, unless it’s a super busy time of the year. So you could end up paying $15 per ticket to use LL for attractions that...

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

    Right. I think many are thinking if they pay for Genie+ they can walk onto any tier 2 ride all day long and I don’t think that’s the case.

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

    Unlimited tier 2 rides as long as they have slots available . . . You could conceivably ride 2 rides and go to get a time for a 3rd and have Genie+ tell you “Sorry all time slots are full” Right??

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

    The question is will you get to choose time slots like FP+ or will Genie+ assign you to the next available slot and that’s it?

    What’s going to happen when character meet and greets come back. They had FP for those - will that be a Genie+ thing too??

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

    Forgive me if this was already addressed but after 66 pages my eyes are blurry- do I have to buy Genie+ for everyone in my party, or can I just purchase for those who want to ride rides and not for Grandma who doesn’t?
