    This is the perfect place to put this, since it is most likely one of the biggest reasons attendance at WDW is down: remembered frustration from previous trips. I hope things improve for you.

    Here as well. My civic club used to have our meetings at the local GC, because it was frankly the easiest place to do so, since we require buffet-style dining and a large separate room we could use for meetings. But the local GC and several GC's in our region were owned by a group that fiscally...

    5th gate anyone.......?

    IMO, with the current management's approach, we're as likely (or more so) to see Legoland: The Terror Experience Park as a 5th WDW gate.

    When I dream of thrills and whimsy, the concept of a food co-op is right in the middle of it. :joyfull:

    I'm amazed at the continued equating of wait times with crowd levels, when it's been shown repeatedly that the direct connection between crowds and wait times was severed years ago by WDW.

    You can always drop your wife off at a park, and then drive an hour east and sit at the beach for a few hours. Drive back at park close, pick her up, and everyone has a good day. :) Admittedly, though, in the past I'd have been the one to be dropped off at the park rather than going to the...

    ITA. I'm the space nut in my family, and I could spend far more than a single day there, but for everyone else in my family the beach is calling. I did get to see a Falcon Heavy launch (and the double booster return to land) from the soccer pitch viewing area next to the Visitors Center in...

    We spent a week in Cocoa Beach in March, and our cost was something like 1/4 the cost of our last Disney weeklong vacation in late 2020, and that's with nicer accommodations, one day at Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center, better food, sea breezes, almost no stress, and with over 3 years of...

    It's a weird dilemma Disney has: they've become so dependent on the extra revenue stream that Genie+ and ILL provide that they have pretty much ignored attendance dropping because the revenue stream was good enough, until probably now, when attendance is such that guests either don't need it, or...

    I have to say that, as a resident of “summer by May 1” Kentucky, the May sun in Florida is a different beast than what even I’m used to. We went to WDW several years ago in mid May, and the temps were about what we’d have locally, but the feel of the Florida sun in the morning made me a little...

    Apparently the wait times “algorithm” used by WDW is on the order of social media company algorithms in terms of value and secrecy.

    Any idea of what percentage of the resorts is offline?

    Besides, those lanyards were kind of fun. I always got a Barney Fife-like thrill out of being the guest chosen to carry it. Anyway, I thought it was a good system; they just needed more lanyards for guests to carry so the updates would be more frequent.

    Make sure you don't go to the Poly for a mid afternoon meal today. That was shown to be packed to the rafters the other day. ETA: sorry I didn't see you're seriously going to the Poly today until just now. 🤣

    MK's emptiness stands even more starkly against the expectation that this weekend may otherwise set travel records for Memorial Day weekend.

    I agree with this. I think sometimes the posted wait time seems inflated to guests after they complete a ride because an event happens (lunch time, trying to make a scheduled ride elsewhere, etc.) occurs while in line that causes people to leave the line, and the wait ends up being reduced by a...

    I was at MK about 4 days after 9/11. It was far more crowded even then than in that photo.

    That is normally one of the worst bottlenecks in all of WDW. Wow.

    I hope you got your special elbow porcupine pads through security to deal with such crowds. 🤣

    Try not to be overcrowded by that family 100 feet away. 🤣
