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

    I can’t wait until cast members are instructed to shoot Nerf guns at you around the park unless you pay the Magical $50 a day cover charge. Gotta love ruining an experience only to “enhance” it for $$$!

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    I know that Disney is a corporation in the end but you’d hope that they’d be better than to send cast members off like that. So disappointing...

    Express Transportation starting Dec 7th

    This kind of stuff just kills me. Disney clearly recognizes their system of bus transportation is so frustrating that they believe people will pay extra money to avoid it... Rather than figuring out a way to fix it so that value is maximized for people staying on property, they figure out a...

    DINOSAUR closed for refurbishment July 25 - November 20 2016

    It's better to realize what it takes to get it done right in the first place and set a refurb window that gives enough time to do it. I'm going tomorrow. I had originally set AK up for the first park day of the trip. When the original refurb window got pushed back to October 17th from...

    DINOSAUR closed for refurbishment July 25 - November 20 2016

    Yep, my FastPass for Dinosaur just got cancelled. So we have to book these vacations at least half a year to a year in advance and FP+ 60 days out but they can push a refurb back a month on 7 days notice after already pushing it back once? Seems reasonable. Whatever happened to setting a...

    This one's for real. Please everyone, stay safe.

    Walts Vision...

    His original premise is if Walt were still alive today, so yeah. Didn't imply that it was realistic haha

    Walts Vision...

    It would be fun if people could keep it civil but these threads always end with everyone acting like their opinion was given to them personally by Walt's ghost and that other opinions are invalid. The principles/values that Walt used to build the company and culture are timeless but in terms of...

    WDW Taking a Hit Over Gator and Massacre ...

    I get a temporary removal of the JC joke... a joke about kids getting eaten by gators so soon after a tragedy is on the insensitive side. But removing all references to gators as though they don't exist? Come on. The lesson to be learned from this is that gators are real, they're everywhere...

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    If finding the boy's body is the conclusion to this tragedy, there's no more story for the press to cover when the conference ends. But... a controversy around Disney keeps the story going. Which angle do you think most of them are going to pursue?

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    So sad but the best possible outcome that could be hoped for at this point. Get the gator out of the water and the boy's body back to his family. Prayers to them.

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    It's really easy to judge the parents when you aren't in their shoes (or aren't a parent yourself). Every parent, myself included, has had a moment with their child where something could've happened if we were the unlucky ones. How many other parents let their kids dip their feet in Seven Seas...

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    However many it takes, honestly. It's not just about providing whatever closure they can to the family, it's also about being able to reassure guests that a desensitized gator that just took a child isn't lurking in the water somewhere.

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    I absolutely hate the internet jump-to-conclusions mobs that form after things like this. How about we stop trying to place blame and instead show some compassion to a family that just lost their young son?

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    Disney is still a fairly safe place all things considered... don't let fear ruin your good time. Relax and enjoy! But yeah, this is a lot of tragedy to stomach all at once.

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    Reading this hit me like a shot to the gut... I can't even imagine what the parents are going through. Heartbreaking. I pray this is a hoax but it doesn't appear to be...

    Orlando Gunman Scouted WDW ...

    I'm not surprised. WDW is a place for happiness and joy for a LOT of people and the sickos in ISIS and other terror groups just want to watch the world burn. They want nothing more than to destroy that happiness. It's just sad that it's come to this... people living inside this country who...

    WDW to Raise All Buffet Prices By Almost 50%?

    The DDP is good at masking the true outrageousness of food pricing in the same way an all-inclusive does... you think about the price once when you pay it and don't actually think about the true value. But at some point, even if people aren't paying every meal out of pocket (and when they do...

    WDW to Raise All Buffet Prices By Almost 50%?

    That's the same trick they pull on us with the DDP though... if everyone gets desserts, snacks, etc, it has to be a great value! Don't actually factor in whether we'd buy them or not without the plan, it's a value! For example... I'll use a family of 4 debating between Chef Mickey's and a...
