    Price Hikes Galore! (Genie+ variable pricing, ILL, refillable mugs, SWGE lightsaber and droids)

    I thought that the last quarterly report from Disney did say that their attendance was down but the revenue was up due to more spending per guest? Did I read that wrong? If that is the case that could be why they need to raise rates on Genie to a fluctuating price scale because they have tapped...

    Chapek's comments - he doesn't want anyone on this board at WDW any more

    Yes if anything Disney has become more adult centric over the years. They are the ones with money. Take a look around and see exactly how many kids are actually there. As an ex cast member I would venture to say the Disney Adult is rather a new thing. They are not selling those loungefly and...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    I am sure many will thing its crazy, but this is just so sad, an end of a fun era for our family personally. We were there in the beginning with our 1-year-old (now 17) in tow and his excitement to ride that bus was the beginning of the fun. We even have the magical express toy bus we bought on...

    Disney Wish

    This makes me so sad. It looks like DCL is going to go down the WDW path of cheap experiences and cost cutting. The cruise line is just too expensive to have something like this no matter how fun a kids might have on it for 10 minutes. Where is the creativity or imagineers on this? It literally...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    Yes but I wonder how much of your time will be buried in a phone, only to be frustrated when the times are not lining up with where you are in the park, so you end up walking back and forth across the park. Just curious how much time did you really save and how convenient it really would be?

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    So there has been so much discussion on Genie+ but I have not seen little on regular old Genie. After watching Molly from Allears explain it as being super intuitive (a product of customers using magic band for 8 years I suppose) it had me questioning though who would really use it and will it...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    I agree it looks bad but have they not done it before? They reduce the number of ride vehicles and only operate one side etc. They hold people at the door and rope off areas to give the impression lines are longer than they are. They reduce hours of CM so they don't have enough workers to run...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to begin Standby September 23rd

    There were loads of Brazilians there this past week. Yes even tour groups. I wondered when that opened up? FWIW standby for Rise was amazing as we waited only 15 minutes (50 minutes posted) one night and 30 minutes another (60minutes posted). I am sure though Disney will fix this soon and...

    Anyone dislike the volggers content?

    I can't believe I waisted 7 minutes watching that. He sure is full of himself. A guy sitting in front of a camera talking about his opinions for a living, complaining about others sitting in front of a camera talking about their opinions for a living. :rolleyes:

    News Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours coming for resort guests

    I was curious about this too. How is this not going to be chaos? Will they really start this exactly October 1. Why not try before to work out kinks? Secretlly hoping they might do trials leading up to it as we leave the 30th of September. Well here is to hoping for low crowds. Cause everyone is...

    FL Governor tells CDC to get its act together

    So in all sincerity I am scratching my head on the test cruise. It seems like many are saying once they do the test cruise they can begin regular cruising. The word “test” means it can pass/fail. What if it fails and fails again? What is the benchmark for passing? Zero covid transmission? 5%...

    Disney Wish

    With all the princess type themes I thought they could have added an actual ride. (instead of a water coaster and calling it a ride...agree with others that it closes in the top deck.) Wonder how much space a ride like Alice in wonderland at DL would need? A classic dark ride on a cruise ship...

    Cars Land After a Decade: How Are We Feeling?

    Well for us it remains a top favorite land! Wdw has nothing like it..well avatar area but it pales in comparison. As far as the shops go, Main Street USA is a favorite area as well and it’s all shops!

    Rumor 40% Capacity Soon? What if I Told You That We’re Already There

    Small kids still go to Disney? From the pictures it looks like it’s an adults playground where a few have decided to sneak their kids in.

    Flamingo Crossings Housing

    This seems so strange to me. How many single people work at disney that would want to share an apartment? What if you have a family? Can you rent a whole unit? Can they really kick you out if you stop working for Disney. The college program was one thing but this is entirely another. Seems to...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    Yes i think its the season and location of life you are in as to whether it is comparable in expenses and experience. I traveled all over before kids. Discovered cruising (dcl) and Disney with kids and it was built in entertainment with nice restaurants to eat at. Fabulous travel for my kids and...

    News Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin to eliminate 1136 employees

    Those people may very well miss it however the companies who pay the bill may not. Time will tell if it effects the bottom line. No doubt this is the great reset button many businesses will use to see if there really was enough profit to warrant those travel expenses.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I wonder what the number is for them to close? Our district in US has been open 14 days. There are 11 cases, mainly in High School. No talk of closing just more talk of quarantine as there are 3k enrolled in the in person class option for the high school. Thankfully we chose the full time...

    Walt Disney World Park Hours cut starting September 8 2020

    As my name states been here awhile before registering and have wanted to ask Steve? @wdwmagic what he sees in regards to traffic on this site. Granted its just a small piece of a bigger puzzle but i would imagine if there is less traffic on here ( at least the planning section of this site) and...
