I was responding not to what people preferred, but to sentiments that without DME, travel to WDW nigh impossible. But congratulations on tackling that straw man!
Who doesn't prefer free services?
Who said it was impossible? Most of the complaints have been about how it will be more complicated or involve more planning, and how they preferred not having to deal with those steps - especially if they’ve only visited in the timeframe when DME is available. But congratulations on moving that goal post!
Also, you apparently did not prefer the free service, as you mentioned you were happy to no longer have that cost be part of your room rate, no?
