    Disney has stated that AQR is available to all guests.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Does anyone know what happens if the party in standby gets to the merge point before the guest who leaves returns?

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I'm not imagining a worst case scenario, I'm just curious. DAS users were not an insignificant number of parties. A number were illegitimate, but another number were people with legit needs for whom AQR is now required. We don't know what that will look like yet.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    How is that going to work if there are 20-30 people make use of that and are waiting at the merge point?

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    If Disney could prove another accommodation was sufficient, I think you would be right. But I still don't see how providing DAS represents fundamentally altering the service of being able to experience an attraction.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Title III is the set of regulations that implements the ADA. It's not exhaustive of what the ADA prescribes. And it isn't meant to cover every situation. If a court were to rule on this, they would look at Title III and the ADA legislation, but the text of the ADA legislation would outweigh...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    So I looked up the ADA to see what the text of the law actually says (as opposed to the guidance issued by the DOJ). When it comes to accomodations required for public accomodations: So this doesn't have to do with physical access at all, but rather the opportunity of the individual or class...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    No, that's not what the ADA requires. It requires that you accommodate a disability. If a disability prevents you from waiting in a queue, and in order to access the line you have to wait in a queue, they need to accommodate that.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Not necessarily. Some people can tolerate short waits - 10-20 minutes. But longer waits cause a major issue.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Even among those with ASD, many people don't neatly fit into a particular level. There's an expression in the ASD community. If you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism. The levels are useful in a clinical setting, but autism experts tend to caution about over...

    “Something major” coming to DHS???

    17B was for capacity expansion for WDW. There is another pool that is for operations improvements, maintenance, etc.

    “Something major” coming to DHS???

    That's a completely different argument from the first one.

    MagicBand+ announced

    Pure tech speculation here - and sorry for those who aren't up on database design - but a common pattern for very large tables is to partition the table on specific fields, so part of the table is stored in one file and part in another. If, let's say, the table was partitioned on magic Band...

    News Tiana's Bayou Adventure - latest details and construction progress

    Surprised me too. I've always thought they should do away with ILL and just charge a higher price for Genie+. Having ILL separate has its issues, like disincentivizing taking an attraction down for maintenance $50 floor for G+, no ILL, no tiers, 7 day advance reservation for your first...

    MagicBand+ announced

    Sure, people complained about that - because Apple was doing it to 1-2 year old phones. We are talking about an 11 year old device. And it's not like they are even dropping support. It may be something on the server end that they are maintaining in order to support MB1 that they need to...

    MagicBand+ announced

    I mean, tech goes obsolete. Magic Band 1 came out in 2013 - the same year as the iPhone 5S. Does anyone cry foul because Apple doesn't support the iPhone 5S anymore?

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Are you sure that's right? When we've used DAS, it's been valid from the start date of of the ticket - i.e. the first day we used it, and then for 60 days (now 30). So if they registered May 18 for their first day in the park on June 17, wouldn't it be valid from June 17 + 30 days? Unless...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    I don't think people by and large are done with Disney. I don't see that in interactions with people I know. Sure there are some of those but I don't think that is the core reason for the low crowds. There are a number of factors at play. I do think (and see a lot of evidence in my...
