yeah thats true, but maybe they will keep capicity limits down for a while (couple of years) and implement it during those times while the ride is new and super in demand (not that it wont ever be not in demand but ya know what i mean) im all for the virtual que and ride reservation style system for major e ticket rides if done in a way thats.....good lol. Perhaps they do like RotR with a reservation/virtual que setup, but leave an actual que line for people to use that didnt get a reservation in time. Then alternate reserve and in line customers onto the ride? That way you can still get a chance to ride the ride even if you dont reserve a spot, it just means standing in line for a couple hours instead of 30 mins

I'm pretty sure they would love to get rid of the virtual queue for Rise, and will eventually.

But it probably has to operate at closer to full capacity without regular breakdowns for that to happen.

Off topic but is ROTR anywhere near running well without breaking down regularly? It’s been open over a year now so that’s certainly time to work out kinks. I’m wondering how much of it is that demand far exceeds supply even if capacity was running as much as possible

anyway on that note, Rat has pretty high capacity and is a clone so I’d hope it should be running pretty well soon after launch and may not need that kind of regulation with boarding passes

Disney updated the MDE app a while ago to function and list multiple virtual queues (the API now lists ROTR VQ as queue #0). So maybe the original plan was to always utilize the Virtual Queue system for Rat. Of course plans have and will probably change as we get closer to the inevitable opening.

I know it was looked at for Rat, and discounted. But that was last summer. Things may have changed.

The original plan was to use VQ on MANY rides as the parks reopened last summer. It was deemed unnecessary.

Any drawn-in line in the water is just lazy tracing on my part. There's a walkway along the lagoon at a lower level than the promenade.
Dangit! And here I was hoping WDW would hand out complimentary floaties for those affected!

There have been more updates to that as well.

They can change out pretty much everything with a VQ from icons showing for it to theming for it to restrictions for joining it.

Doesn't necessarily mean it's coming to Rat though. Most likely them just building it out for potential future uses.

Yeah that's not good. Switchbacks aren't so efficient these days as they lose half the switchbacks to maintain distancing.
Maybe Disney is counting on unsocial distancing being a thing of the past by the time Rat opens? Or delaying the opening until such time that the extra measures are no longer required?

Even when Disney takes all the tape off the ground, I’d imagine guests will keep spreading out at least a little more than they used to. That alone will have ripple effects across all the queues in the parks.
I expect the opposite. I have visited some smaller amusement venues and their outdoor queues have no distancing or mask requirements. Even with suggested marks on the ground, the guests in line were not observing those, and did not seem to care. I think WDW guests will return to tighter lines very quickly.

Pre covid people in lines would be right up your back.
And even when WDW first reopened my wife got into a verbal conferation when she reqested some teens space out as they were literllay bumping into us. There was a language barrier and it was getting heated and I was worried about an altercation with my children there.
Just becuse we requested they stand on the marker on the ground.

We were at Animal Kingdom last night, and the people were bumping into us behind us in the line for FOP.

I would love the distance after masks are gone.
But i do look foward to the masks going away, they are brutal in the Florida Summer.

One good thing that happened the past year is more “personal space”. Who doesn’t like personal space! Unfortunately in the theme park world personal space doesn’t normally exist and sadly won’t much longer. Some may find it hard to go back to not having personal space, myself being one of them lol, but that’s life.
