I'm hoping this calms down a bit before we get there in July. Otherwise, I'll have a disappointed 8 year old to deal with.
I think this is ROTR's biggest long-term issue. They cannot afford for significant numbers of non-AP guests to sink all the effort and expense into a trip, only to go home without having experienced their new flagship attraction. If days like yesterday end up being common for more than a month or so, they're going to have a real mess on their hands.
I'm guessing things will settle down by June if not March. The AP crowd will have already figured out a way to see it and the virtual fast pass will be gone. It happen that way for Target Run and Pixar Pier.
I think you're right that the rush will drop significantly 3-6 months out. But, I'm not sold that this virtual queue is a temporary thing. I'm not sure we'll ever see it go away, and I definitely don't see it going away until the ride becomes much more reliable. As much as they can't afford to have paid guests walking away without a chance to experience it, compounding that issue with the risk of hours of wasted time in a physical queue is an even worse scenario.

How has the response time been on the query? Consistent or have you seen any jitter? I would hope the status query would be stable... while the join request may take the brunt of the delay
Very stable. I haven't been messing with the join request whatsoever.

Wow! That is an insecure app. Good thing ticket and account information aren't on it. Oh wait....
Nah, Disney is very good about this. Everything is in it's own bucket basically. Fastpasses vs the Virtual Queue vs Tickets vs everything else. Anything not public (think your passes and tickets) are very secure. General statuses are still pretty secure.

Polling the info the server is willing to share is not the same as hacking the server and forcing it to give info it normally wouldn't share.

Although, the server may be throwing out some info that isn't being currently used by the MDE app which a scrubber can see.

This is not indicative of security. It would be interesting if it's behind authentication or not.. but even that is usually done with common technologies. When your app is on a platform like android that everyone has developer access to... you don't rely on secrecy for security. You effectively have none.

Luckily, they’re chugging along today, already at group 28 before 10AM.
And yet they had another morning where they couldn't open with the park. For the fourth day in a row.

They didn't call the first boarding group this morning until 8:50am.

I’m glad I wasn’t that impressed with the ride and don’t have to ride it again. This system is a mess.

Good luck to everyone with this process.
Yep! When I rode it I waited maybe 15-20 minutes tops in line.

I couldn't imagine going through this much hassle to ride any ride, let alone this one.

Based on my experience living in LA, "The AP crows will have already figured out a way to"....exploit it :)

If I understand the park attendance numbers, DHS theoretically has the potential to allow everyone in the park to ride RotR once. DL RotR will never have that potential.

Does anyone know if DL attendance ever dips below 30K/day anymore?

Double big yikes. I thought I was being a tad conservative with my 800 guesstimate. 700 per hour is truly abysmal.
While I'm not surprised there's issues (as any new ride would have), I'm surprised they're having this big of issues. I would've thought since it was "done" before DHS's and the extra month after DHS opened would've helped.

I think it's running slower then DHS's during it's first week.
