Afaik it is a rare thing. Last time I saw it being used was on a livestream in February.
This would be a big bummer for me if I had gotten up multiple mornings and missed a BG and then missed a BD at 1pm too to only have this happen; especially if it was my first time. So disappointed seeing such a fragile ride at WDW.

Which is still BS, I’m sorry I think this system is just ridiculous since I’ve never once in three damn trips been able to get a boarding pass and I’ve followed every so called “trick” in the book. I’m obviously going to try at 1pm but I’m quite discouraged and am convinced that the ride will be 10 years old before I will ever get on it 🤬
Were you able to get a boarding pass today? After I read this post I was rooting for you!

You’ve just spent all day arguing for BGs. Now you’re saying they’re alienating people who aren’t practiced at it.

You can’t have it both ways.

There is a world of difference between trying to secure a reservation in mere seconds and having several minutes.

BTW, I'd like to see it done as a sort of lottery where you can sign up for a BG when you make a park reservation. The algorithm could be programmed easily to select those first who have not won the "lottery" in the longest timeframe. So if you have secured a BG and successfully ridden in the last week or so you probably wouldn't get a BG. 🍀

Not only that but you are using up all that time from your park passes if you don't have an AP. You're basically stuck at the Studios when you could be spending valuable hours at the other parks.

Anyone else have an issue with the friends and family page taking abnormally long to load? Has happened twice this week. Data signal was strong.

Tried the “mash JOIN from main page once Time.gov hits a second before 7” and it worked. Didn’t hole up to tap “Select All” as I understand my party, the day of, will all be auto-selected already if they have park registration (is this correct?).

Basically JOIN-JOIN-JOIN. Seemed to work, stopped me due to not having a park reservation today.

So yesterday was our travel home day as I wanted to end our five day vacation with DHS and I am glad to report we got boarding group 169 and got on a little after 6pm on Wednesday. I now know why people have a hard time with words minutes after riding. That was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had on an attraction on property. I’m still mesmerized. Heck just the cue had me in all my feels before I even stepped on the ride!

I think Disney knows where their bread is buttered. Right now, the parks aren't as AP-centric as they were a few months ago, but are still far more so than pre-pandemic, so they won't want to **** them off. Once tourists fully come back, they may well pivot and introduce a tweak that benefits resort guests (e.g. a seperate pool of boarding passes to choose from so they have a greater chance of getting one).
