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

    There is a simular thread over on Disboards but this post I think hits the nail with what the future will bring. You are all missing the easiest one of all: ParkPass+ With paid Genie+ and LL, Disney can increase their revenue by adding or deleting ride capacity now. Theoretically, they could...

    Did Disney push too far this time?

    Over the past 20 years I have watched Disney decrease their value and people STILL go but this time I think they have created the perfect storm and it may just bite them. Crazy room rates compared to offsite and no real benefit to onsite. Guest will have to make up the difference in their...

    the MANY problems with Genie+ and paid FastPass (or whatever they are calling it)

    It's a capacity issue and they know it is a issue and don't care because they can charge more. I would say its even part of the grand plan to make the parks boutique, and lower attendance. The headliners they develop have miserable capacity, ie RoTR. They want the guests who don't bat an eye...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Actually they did it to themselves. I am not going to "sacrifice" my or my families health so that my co-worker on the front line can bring Covid into our workplace because it's there freedom to do so. I would NOT work in a hospital that isn't mandating the vaccine so to me it is a...

    Houston Methodist has over 22,000 employees. 150 is nothing. They are struggling with staffing, as is every Health care system, for the same reasons before there was even a pandemic.

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

    Anyway, Genie+ is going to kill Disney World and Disneyland If only it would. I have been on Dis forums over 20yrs and every time there are post like this with the impending doom to the Company, they come back stronger every time. This was designed by accountants , not actually for the...

    Okay, Who’s Booking at Star Wars: Galactic Cruiser?

    Plugging in 2 random days at Four Season in September and its 1100/night for a lake view. If you consider it includes dining and entrance into DHS and the whole the experience it doesn't seem that rediculous of a price. That is if you can justify 1100/night for a room in the first place and...

    Orlando Becoming East Coast Headquarters for Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products

    Has anyone heard when this move should start? My daughter thought Febuary but that seems too soon. But the website that was posted earier shows occupancy in 120 day so maybe?

    FYI: Aventhealth is at Black status so preventing hospitalizations doesn't work when you are NOT vaccinated. https://www.wesh.com/article/adventhealth-black-status/37173529#

    I can't believe we are in year 2 of this S**t show and there is still so much ignorance and stupidity being said. It makes it feel hopeless.

    Actually there is the theory that the Spanish flu died out because the virus mutated in the wrong direction so to say so we can hope for war of the worlds ending to the pandemic

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    The problem with letting Delta rip through is it gives it an opportunity to create more variance all the way down the Greek alphabet to the point where one figures out how to work around the vaccine. I also think we’re at a point where it’s not a matter of us letting it do anything it’s just...

    My daughter has been looking since June preparing to go back. Mainly winter garden/Windermere/Celebration. The 1Br at Evander Square precovid was 1300 is now 1700. There was a recently article in the Orlando Sentinel That compared rents in LA to Orlando and Orlando was pretty dam close to LA...

    I also think it would be a hell of a motivator if you also had to pay your hospital bill IF you chose not to get vaccinated.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    How many cases a day is going to be related to the behavior going on in the state AND the vaccination rate. I'm in wisconsin where Bucks in six was a HUGE celebration and for several nights 65,000+ celebrated cramed in the Deer district and yesterday we had 1000 covid positive when before we...

    Disney executives have come up with the answer to rock bottom Cast Member morale

    IMHO Disney has a problem that there is no clear career ladder wether you are in corporate or in the parks. I have one daughter now at a big 4 firm and yes she works like a dog but she knows if she performs she will be senior in 2 years and manager in 4-5 years. The other daughter at Disney...

    This is also going to be a blow to teams at WDW that are living in Widermere/Winter Garden areas. They are looking at a 40 minute commute on a good day.
