Well they wouldn't sell me a Pirates tommy bahama shirt in my size off a mannequin in the Contemporary gift shop. My wife and I were honestly stunned! Disney refusing to make a buck...I can’t imagine Disney would ever refuse someone’s money, even if it was during a Deluxe Resort/ DVC event!
i hope they would go back to evening magic hours for all resort guests when things start getting more back to normal. right now it kind of comes off that they care more for deluxe resort guests vs value & moderate guests as they throw them a crumb for early morning hour.
i know i’ll probably be crucified for this, but that’s just my initial opinion on this announcement.
I mean, it's not like they are giving the deluxe resorts an "extra" perk, they are giving the same perk as before but taking it away from the lower tier.
You can’t buy a Disney vacation package without it first giving you a pop up about park reservations. I really don’t think the average guest is that clueless. And if they are, they probably aren’t the type of person who would even know about this event in the first place.Not exactly.
Everyone knew they needed a ticket to get in that’s assumed.
Not everyone understands they need a reservation to get into a park that’s not really intuitive.
To a average clueless guest this will be a touch more confusing.
My opinion, and it's just that, is this is a step in the right direction. It could be great with some small tweaks.
All resorts are getting extra time in the AM, across all 4 parks. I wish it were a bit more time, but the premise is good in that it will spread the guests out and doesn't require any special planning. This is a win, and could easily be a bigger win.
An additional perk of night hours for some resort guests also seems like a fair way to incentivize folks to stay at Deluxe. The entire system of extra hours has an element of favoritism ... so it seems disingenuous to say it's unfair to offer to Deluxe guests. I rarely stay Deluxe, but occasionally splurge or find an economical way into this tier (big discount or renting DVC points). I realize this isn't possible for everyone, but it's not fair to say it's only for the rich. That being said, WDW could really solve the problem by extending hours for everyone, and then adding these extra hours on top of that. I'm sure some folks will still think it's unfair, but if everyone can stay in the parks on a busy nights until 10 or 11pm, I think it would be justified to "overlook" these complaints while letting those in Deluxe stay even later.
