I am going to buy a day of roaming for Internet instead of using the wifi when we go. Will I have a better shot at getting a BG using actual data vs wifi?
I think that WDW wifi gets crushed at 7am so I would not want to trust that at crunch time. Others have had success but when it gets a few minutes before 7 I noticed major slowdowns

BG 52 yesterday

- ITS floor rumble/sway NOT there, only felt the slight turntable rotation movement
- Probe Droid still just sitting there, doesn’t descend/drop into place
- Probe Droid laser not working
- Front view. Elevator light saber element completely missing, R5 obviously doesn’t react as nothing happens, you just exit elevator to enter cannon room. I asked people in the car behind us if they had the effect and they did, so appeared to just be the left elevator/front view having the issue.
- First cannon working/moving. 2/3 still not moving

Timing between all preshows/ride/exit were swift and efficient. Feels like they have this flow down pat 🤩

*Note* next DHS visit is 8/07. 😢 me a river, I ❤️ the pity 🤩😂🤩
8/7? I got plenty of time to catch up.

I walked all around our resort (Pop Century) and I couldn’t find anywhere with a good cell signal using my Verizon phone. The WiFi seemed the same everywhere I tested it (around 28 Mbps download at best). I tried twice in the morning but was unsuccessful due to my friends and family taking a good 7 or 8 seconds to load.

In the park I went to the animation courtyard at 1pm both days and got a solid 60 Mbps using the WiFi and scored boarding groups (84 & 85). May the force be with you!

I will have my son up on his phone at 7am with me trying. I will have him try on the Wi-Fi and I will use cell data. ;) Hopefully I get one for the evening on our first day as I am driving right to DHS after we get off the plane so I can be in the park before 1pm. If I do score an afternoon BG on day one then all will be right with the world and if I do not get a 7am BG on the first full DHS day for us then no big deal. :)

Since reopening?

21, not counting the 2 days that Rise didn't run at all.
What's up with 21? I guess my reason for asking about this was on day one when we get off the plane I'm going straight to the park to tap into the park and try for boarding group in the afternoon but if I get a high boarding group I was just curious what the likelihood of it not being called at all would be.

Was back in December '20, they didn't start calling for the day until after 4pm.
