And your boring argument fails to acknowledge that disney doesnt have to give resort guests everything for the on property incentive to still be intact. Do onsite resort guests get to break the normal FP limit? Do they get to book multiple parks? Do they not have to wait in lines?And this is why they use it as an incentive to book rooms. This is not debatable
Based on the experience of several repeat riders on Touring Plans, you should already be logged on the latest version of the app (update it if you’re not sure) and have it open ready before the opening time.Just a random question that I’m sure has been asked and answered. When the clock hits 7:00 when I’m there, should I already be in the app or should I close the app and wait til 7:00 to open it?
I’m sure they don’t. It’s usual to rely on attraction and hotel wifi. From the people I know and the travel agents I know.No, not necessarily. I’m sure most people get a travel package when they go international.
The problem with using FP+ for RotR is one of ride capacity.The BG system is not better for resort guests. As a resort guest, you could book a FP 60 days out and not have to get up at 5am and be guaranteed a ride. It's better for non resort guests. Worse for resort guests.
When I used to work at Epcot, there was definitely times when the wait time for Soarin would be posted at five hours on the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve. This was beforetthey added the 3rd theater and before Frozen Ever After opened, and before Fastpass+. I am not sure if it ever actually had a wait that long. But I know that all the fastpasses would be gone as soon as it was physically possible to distribute them, and that the standby line would extend out to the backstage alleyway between The Land and Imagination.Oh I don’t think they should stop the BGs, never said that. I just don’t understand where people get these ludicrous wait times I keep seeing on here. Not saying it’s impossible, I just don’t understand what those numbers are based on.
Yes, we would! We will be in Disney in a few weeks and I’ve been following this thread for my husband. He will be going into GE while me and my two girls (9 & 4) do the Frozen sing a long and Little Mermaid show. He will definitely be doing single rider for Smugglers Run and if we can get him a boarding pass for Rise then obviously he’ll do that as well. My girls and I will not be riding either. My girls know nothing about Star Wars and honestly, they’d be scared by the rides and characters. If the Mickey ride was open, we would 100% FP that over the Star Wars ridesOnly thing is, will anyone pick MMRR over ROTR? I certainly wouldn't
The Frozen M&G in Magic Kingdom had 5+ hour waits when it first opened. I snagged Fastpasses for a few days after opening, and if looks could kill, we'd have been murdered by hundreds of Standby guests as we walked into the FP+ line.People keep talking about 5, 6, 7 hour lines. When has this ever happened? The longest I've ever seen is 3 hours, and that is on the peak busy days.
Works for me!Under the Entitled Resort Guest doctrine that some are promoting,
Foreign Resort Guests should get ROTR priority over regular Resort Guest and everyone else since they "spend the most money" and the cost of missing ROTR and having to come back to Orlando again is the greatest.
You obviously have little experience using the 60 day FP+ window. At 7am 60 days before your trip you have to get online and book. Otherwise all the FP+ reservations are taken for new rides. In fact, if you have a short 2-3 night stay you still may not get a FP+ reservation for the most popular rides. That just means you booked at an onsite hotel and got an extra 60 days to book FP+ on ToT, Star Tours, and other rides that are available day-of. Seems to me that BG's are more advantageous and give on-site guests a better shot at riding new rides.The BG system is not better for resort guests. As a resort guest, you could book a FP 60 days out and not have to get up at 5am and be guaranteed a ride. It's better for non resort guests. Worse for resort guests.
