    D23 Epcot Forever Poster Series

    Thank you. Done. I did forward both order numbers and my name and address. Hoping they can verify that it shows up in their list of active orders somewhere.

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

    The CM was mistaken, or your math is wrong. There are 4 theaters. Each theater has 3 levels,16 people per level or a total of 48 people per theater. 192 people if all 4 theaters are operating, and all banshees are working, which often they are not. I'm not even sure the last time I was in a...

    D23 Epcot Forever Poster Series

    So "in theory" they have reordered the serigraph. But since the item is removed from the website, the supervisor had to do it in a way that she can't actually verify that the order will proceed to Cyclops. So now we might get 0, 1 or 2 posters and we have absolutely no clue which one it will...

    D23 Epcot Forever Poster Series

    So this is not going well. Neither phone nor email seems to even recognize that there are two different items, of different sizes, with different price points. And one of them hasn't even been produced yet! Of course, now it's 12/1 and the item is removed so we can't reorder, the lower level...

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

    I imagine during peak periods Universal hits comparable numbers as busy days on Disney (although maybe not Disney's peak, but average summer). It's just that Disney has many, many more days higher than Universal year round. But if Universal builds 1700 when they have fewer guests on average...

    Universal is tight lipped on everything. Kong, I've seen listed at 2160. Velocicoaster, someone estimated at just above 1700 THRC so OHRC is lower, but given the intensity of ride it is they probably can get away with that. Hagrid's I think is also around 1700. But even their older rides...

    Does Navi have empty seats? Frozen? Even the much maligned Mermaid has wait times other than the first hour and after dinner. They may not be an hour wait, but if the actual goal is to fill all the seats while people are waiting as little as possible... A 5 minute line but no empty ride...

    Sad news: Oceanic Arts closed after 65 years... major contributor of art & carvings for Disneyland, the Polynesian, and Norway pavilion

    We were able to visit their warehouse in Whittier for the first, and apparently only time in September. Since we had our car, we bought 2 pieces for our Disney Tiki displays, and now are so very glad we did. Best wishes for their retirement, but they filled an important role in that type of...

    And to add on with another thought. Whatever number X is... this is a function of the admission price. If admission was only $50 a day, more people would be fine with only getting on 1 headliner than if it's $100 a day or $150 a day. Every time Disney raises a price, they increase the demand...

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

    Me! Because I’ve gone through the other calculations and seen how people react to what is built. My determination is the biggest thing that will get people out of lines for headliners is other headliners. I point to the numbers of Ds& Es in the 70s vs what they have at Epcot and AK. Even MK is a...

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

    There will always be a 60 minute wait for Space Mountain because lots of people have expectations that when you go to some places, like a theme park you will have to wait in an hour long line for the most popular things. That calculation is done by people's brains, in advance, and is...

    News Walt Disney World to resumes sales of Annual Passes September 8th

    If they have people left to adequately train them. Honestly, in 2005 when my Mom was first trained in merchandise at WDW she still felt like a deer in the headlights (and she was a former Asst. manager of a Disney Store, so it's not like she was coming in completely cold). The things you do...

    If adding new rides doesn't improve the capacity situation, then decreasing capacity shouldn't make things worse. Only every time a ride goes out of service we see the bad, every time a ride closes for rehab we see the bad. We see Disney refuse to do timely rehabs because they know the bad...

    So in the continuing saga of Epcot posters and Shop Disney, last week during one of the sales I ordered 2 lithographs and the Illuminations $99 Serigraph. What I got in my package... 3 lithographs. The two I ordered and the Illuminations. Email pending to Shop Disney...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    We also were not asked to stick around after our Booster. We were shopping in Costco so if anything happened there were plenty of people around.

    It means MK closed for regular guests 9 minutes ago and After Hours hasn’t started yet.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Yep. In my state, we have our FEMA support and we also have a team from Andrews Air Force Base help staff the hospital system in Fort Collins. If that is what your normal looks like, then I guess we have that level of control. If that is not part of your definition of normal, well, there is...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    An update to the “it only causes mild illness” in Omicron. Facts not in evidence. Among the young & healthy the Doctor physically saw, true. General population… still the same concerns about the same people as before older, unvaccinated with comorbidities.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Exponential growth has the same problem it always has. By the time there is confidence that something is a big problem, it's already too late to stop the explosion, because you've already allowed several more doublings to happen unabated. If you have any intention of retarding growth of...
