    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    5:30pm on a Saturday and 7 Dwarfs & Peter Pan are under an hour at 55 and 45 minutes respectively. Pirates showing 5 minutes. Space Mountain 20. Over at DHS Runaway Railway is showing 30 minutes and Slinky Dog is 45. As long as you can deal with recording breaking heat and upcoming tropical...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    I remember my managers and coordinators doing this as well. I also remember them calling in just before the end of an hour asking us to "manually add 'x' number of guests" with the manual add button we would use when guests in wheelchairs, strollers, etc. would come in and not go through the...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    But you still need the roles that don't pay the bills filled to run the operation.

    News Nearly all rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios have waits above 2 hours at a very busy Walt Disney World

    I think the drop will take another week and a half. The way everything fell this year had marathon weekend right against New Year's because this coming weekend will already be MLK weekend. I sense Wednesday 1/17 as the first day where everyone in WDW ops can truly breathe, and the week of 1/22 -...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    How many times does Hagrid's Motorbikes at Universal have a delayed opening/significant downtime due to maintenance? A lot. Going back to WDW, how many times did Test Track have a delayed opening back in the day when it was new and had lots of maintenance issues? Practically every day. Looking...

    Potential Major Hurricane Idalia Possibly to Impact Central/Northern Florida 8/29

    Assuming it continues to track north, all those Orange County students may have a chance to get use out of their theme park APs

    Potential Major Hurricane Idalia Possibly to Impact Central/Northern Florida 8/29

    I feel like after the parks closed for COVID there is a greater chance they may close, even if just for a half day, for storms they would have stayed open for in the past. There is a much greater emphasis on employee safety/concern in the current world, and I do feel like there is more scrutiny...

    News Peak heat index to hit 112F at Walt Disney World theme parks this week

    My time working in WDW Parking was the hottest, least forgiving activity I have ever done. There were zero accommodations made during a 'normal' Florida summer so I can't imagine anything is changing this year. Breaks are typically every 2-2 1/2 hours. So if you're in the lot and not in a shaded...

    Trail’s End Restaurant closing this Spring to reopen with a new concept

    This. Never did I think Cedar Point would offer a better guest experience, offer better guest service, and provide a better overall value than Walt Disney World. But with the infrastructure improvements, resort upgrades, and overall rounding out of the park - a Cedar Point vacation is a better...

    News Disney CEO Bob Iger says raising park prices and increasing capacity is not smart and criticizes previous policies

    This. It has nothing to do with consumers/guests not having a backbone. Quite the opposite. There's a demand for a particular product and the parks (all of the parks) are more than willing to sell the product at a premium for guests that want it. For all of the whining and "corporate...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    I'd honestly be happy to pay double Universal/Cedar Fair/Six Flags queue skipping prices for a one day unlimited G+. Heck, make it triple. You'd have the usual folks crying "greed" but you would also have people that found value in it that would do it. But not enough to affect capacity in...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    I have to laugh the pages and pages of folks complaining about the "greed" that is Disney charging for queue skipping. Universal has been doing it for close to two decades. And it costs more. Cedar Fair and Six Flags parks will charge more per person for queue skipping than a ticket to get in...

    News Disney World Cast Member unions to begin week of negotiations for wage increases, healthcare costs and more

    I wouldn't recommend a College Program for anyone looking to get into a professional or business career. For the thousands and thousands of kids that do it each year, there are maybe 50-100 full time professional jobs that could work out for them. And if you want to work in Park Operations, a...

    News Disney World Cast Member unions to begin week of negotiations for wage increases, healthcare costs and more

    ^ This right here. And a unionized Cast Members can get away with quite This. And a unionized Cast Member can get away with a *lot* and even progressive discipline does not affect pay. There is no reason for someone barely squeaking by on a front line Cast Member salary to go above and beyond...

    Hiding friends plans

    I am having issues with this now too. I have everything set as "only shared plans", etc., but everyone is seeing everything I have scheduled and vice versa. I hate going through my plans and trying to figure out what is mine and what belongs to friends going on entirely different days.
