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

    I have to say that a lot of people are over reacting to all of this When I got my first AP, --There was no Memory Maker. That is only the last few years. We look at the ride pictures and do maybe one photographer per trip so it is a complete nothing burger to us. But 99 bucks for the who year...

    News Expose reveals WDC control in online fan community

    I am really confused by the hatred for Genie and Genie+. Other than people not wanting to personally pay for it. The biggest complaints boil down to it is not very Disney. But Disney pioneered the "Pay to get in the gates" then pay for each attraction and some would cost way more than others...

    Rumor My Genie Conclusions - The Future of WDW’s Ticketing

    How did you do that in 1977? From October of 71 till the summer that Epcot opened in 1981, Disney required you to purchase admission, purchase a ticket to ride the monorails and busses, then made you pay additionally for each attraction that you rode. The Disney model from 1955 to 1981 was pay...

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    That is a stretch. You are taking something that applies to you and generalizing it to "Most People". And in this case it is false. Disney hotels are running full and no one has fastpasses.

    Morocco Pavilion facing financial troubles

    The Pavilion may have opened with the support of the Moroccan government, but it is owned by a private company Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant, LLC. The company is composed of two members. So it has two owners, both private Moroccan citizens. One was a former travel official for the Moroccan...

    When are all these cutbacks not about COVID anymore?

    Also, remember that these touches cost so much per person staying at the hotel. And with no hotel guests; who is contributing to paying the expenses for these touches like the orchestra? This is most likely the business model that Disney wants for the lounge. As guests find a bar 'relaxing'...

    When are all these cutbacks not about COVID anymore?

    Not surprising at all. The hotel is not open yet. Just the DVC building and some NFL players inside their bubble and they will not be hanging out in the lobby.

    Walt Disney World Park Hours cut starting September 8 2020

    Demand is down. Here is the perfect example I fly Spirit to Orlando from Austin. Last fall, we made 3 trips. We had the choice of 4 non-stop flights each day. Now Spirit has 4 flights per week. 1 flight a day on 4 days and no flights on 3 days. That is it. 1/7 the flights to MCO from AUS and...

    When are all these cutbacks not about COVID anymore?

    While no one wants to see less in their Disney experience, there is a financial view to look at. Pre-Covid Disney looked at the non-revenue and revenue-neutral items as an expense. IF 350,000 people visited the parks in a week and the weekly cost to a line-item like fireworks was $1,000,000 the...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I know that when we went to Batuu opening weekend we loved that we got to use the spork. We did not steal ours, but left them on the tray. When we went back 2 weeks later, they were gone. Last month, when we returned, we missed them greatly. Next time, we will be purchasing them.

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    The boarding group process is not "failing miserably". It is actually working exactly as planned. It controls the flow of people into the queue. In a culture of First Come, First Served, the boarding groups are a great way to manage the queue. If you are willing to get there before park...
