    My fear

    So I know I'm a little late to the party and honestly not sure I want to read through all 5 pages to see if anyone else mentions this. The air in your airplane, while it is much dryer so you need to drink more water, is actually cleaner than the air in your home or office building. We all know...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    So I'm guessing the new door system is being put on all trains after the issues with doors over the last ~2 years, but does anyone know if there were any other mechanical things changed during the refurb?

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    Enough extra cash would solve that problem, but with the state of basically everything else at the moment, that kind of extra padding isn't happening. Not a suggested way of running things either. Sure, but Bombardier would probably be the much preferred company for this considering the current...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I think the process would normally take something along the lines of 5-7 years including negotiations and customization for the specifications necessary for Disney's beam, but with the rumored backlog of contracts that Bombardier is dealing with, it may take 10 or more years to complete, which...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    The negotiations were said to be with Bombardier, who made the Mark 6, who has not shown any sort of deal with Disney on any financial reports that are made public roughly every 3 months, and with the amount of money that comes with this type of deal, it would be on that report.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    Nothing was ever truly confirmed, and with how long that deal will take as well as the actual process of building and replacing, it will still be several years away at least, and the heavy refurbs show that Disney doesn't see it coming quickly either.

    Why no money for the Yeti fix?

    So we all know how the Yeti has not moved in 10+ years, right? Well, my family has gone at least once a year since before the opening of Expedition Everest. At our last trip in March, we took some of our extended family, and they had asked why the Yeti wasn't moving and was instead strobbed...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    Although at this point that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, it's very overdue for a system that was not well taken care of to begin with.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    Ah, I had no idea it was in refurb.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I'm assuming at least 98% of this thread/forum have not. For those of us who haven't, can we get some sort of explanation?

    How late does the safari run?

    Of course! I'm sure you could also make a phone call to WDW to double check what the policy is and if they have either an estimate or an exact time they could give you for a day or cluster of days during your trip

    Is there a check-in early fee?

    No fee, unless you consider having to wait around for a while to get a room. I would suggest checking in whatever bags you have with you when you arrive with the bellhop in the lobby, checking in, and then heading somewhere to do something while you wait for the room, whether that's going to...

    There are Single Rider lines....what about Single Diner?

    A crazy idea: the single diner where 4 singles are sat together at a conventional table of 4, increasing capacity and everyone gets to meet someone new while they eat. I know this is a crazy idea that would never be practical but I thought was interesting. Would anyone else want to try this if...

    Are Gorilla Pods allowed at Disney/Universal?

    I may very well be wrong so take this with a grain of salt, but I vaguely remember seeing someone with a gorilla pod back in March at WDW.

    How late does the safari run?

    As far as I'm aware, it depends on the day, but we rode it a couple of times during our last trip (mid March) and they all mentioned what time the ride would be closing that night (we were riding earlier in the day) and that it was right before sunset due to lower light levels.

    Explaining the Magic Band system to someone

    I'm sure we have an old one lying around somewhere. We can always just tell him what @MisterPenguin said above.

    I am booking fast passes but 64 days in advance??

    That's also not very surprising. I almost always have to deal with glitches and errors just being on the freaking app or website. Why is this even possible?

    Flying a Drone at a WDW Resort

    Too recently. I just assumed that it wasn't a no-fly-zone, plus the DJI software had just started informing you of them and prevented me from taking off. Just a minor mistake. Either way, probably a good idea to check first, and to get permission just in case.

    Explaining the Magic Band system to someone

    Well, he would be going completely off of the information we gave him. If we can avoid it, we would just keep him from knowing about all of their tracking but I don't know that we'll be able to keep it up for a week with normal conversations including pictures. At that point we might be able to...

    Explaining the Magic Band system to someone

    Later this week, I'm going to be arriving at WDW with some extended family that has never been. One of them is extremely paranoid about Big Brother and being tracked and all that. What do y'all think the best way to explain to him about the long-range readers and what they do, like automatically...
