really sorry to see this being discontinued.......take some of Igers salary back and continue make this happen...!!
That’s the part that doesn’t make sense - Disney’s target audience is the group this will affect the most.I travel with my sister and her family (3 kids under 12) plus our mom every two years or so to WDW. The luggage part will be the worst to adjust to, plus arranging transport for 7 people and their luggage. Crap move on Disney’s part.
That’s true.That’s the part that doesn’t make sense - Disney’s target audience is the group this will affect the most.
OOoooh that is an interesting thought....yes Mears benefits from DME too.....I love having my yellow tags and zipping past bag check to get on a bus.....the train when done would be good too if they could still take care of the luggage.....so many questions.....you all know how much thought and planning goes into a trip....I actually ordered the unofficial guide coming out just to see what they had to say about covid procedures and if they ponder the DME thingy.....not planning on returning til 2023 but I am starting to think on it.....the DME being defunct stops my mental process from proceeding though.....it is soooooooooooo anticlimatic..... Guess I will plan to write my complaint letter......It is a strange move-
The adverse affect is going to have more guests stay off property, and that seems to fly in the face of their strategies over the past decade or two of maximizing profit by keeping guests tethered to the confines of the WDW.
I’m beginning to wonder if it could be a contract negotiation ploy with Mears or something.
Saving $200 a night in room costs by staying off property... check!What I find mildly amusing in such a proclamation is that these same folks aren't considering the cost of taxis/ride shares in and out of the parks (or rental cars) as something they might have to absorb if they go off property.
7700 people doesn't equal a resort-wide rope drop on a Saturday morning.https://insidethemagic.net/2021/01/magical-express-petition-ad1/
Hey there is a petition that has over 7700 signers online......guess any little bit to catch their attention......
Are you saying 50,000 or 500,000?It is a start......not sure how many they will get to sign......what about 50,0000 people?!?!?!
You're not saving any parking fees, you're just going to be paying for the parking at the theme park rather than at the hotel.Saving $200 a night in room costs by staying off property... check!
Saving $25 a night in parking fees... check!
Renting a car for a week... that's two nights in a Disney Deluxe ($450) and if there's one AP in the party, all the park parking is free.
So where's the chuckle in that???
I wouldn't put it past Disney to change these rules somehow (though I wouldn't know how other than eradicating those perks).Indeed. Having just one AP in the group pays for daily parking and gives everyone in the group Photopass. Depending on how long your party is staying, it could be cost-saving to have an AP in the group.
