Sorry i was not willing to surf this entire thread, but looking for a tip...If its just me and my wife trying to get a boarding group, should we both be on the app trying? If this is so does she need her own MDE log in?

Make sure both your ticket and your wife's are added into the app before you enter the park. You can have her download the app and add both of your tickets to her own profile. It would be a good idea to have two separate profiles. I am not sure how the app would act if you had you and your wife both logged into the app under one profile (AKA your's on both phones) I haven't tested it.

You both can try for a boarding pass. But here is where you need to be careful. Once either of you snag a boarding pass it will state on the other persons phone that you are already in a boarding group if you leave your boarding group you will be added to a new one (or it would say back up). People get trigger happy and dont read. So make sure if you are both trying for it the second it says you are in a boarding group to not go any further or you will lose your initial group. I did it with 6 people all our tickets linked into each others profiles and I told them you see it say you are in a boarding group to stop and just close the app. I also got stupid excited and yelled 16!!! when i got us all a group so that stopped them and took their attention off the app lol.

I've been informed that a big percentage of the downtime is due to the mechanism that locks the ride vehicle into the simulator base (specifically the sensor systems that ensure it's locked in correctly). Can anyone corroborate this?

If they care enough about the experience, this means they might be able to develop a new version of that system, so it minimizes those problems. Unfortunately, especially under current management, it's possible that they might change the ride experience instead - which, needless to say, would be tragic considering the accomplishment this attraction represents (and how it allows Disney to once again stand out against its competition).

I don't think this'll become a Disco Yeti situation though.

I can't seem them changing the ride experience, though, it's such a severe part and well-loved by everyone who does ride it. Without it, it really does become Hallways: The Ride.

I was concerned about them toning down the drop and/or the motion base movement. Either of those changes would be VERY detrimental to the guest experience. It would leave the attraction without a good finale - which is currently a big part of what makes people disembark feeling "wowed." Those last few moments do a perfect job at pulling the whole story and experience together.

But anyway, Martin has seemed to imply that it's now a different issue (or set of issues), so hopefully the finale is safe. (Thanks as always for your input, Martin!)

Hope they didn't bet on the wrong tech for turning vehicles from horizontally-moving dark ride type vehicles into coaster or simulator type twirl 'n' hurl machines.

Everyone else figured this out quite a long time ago ... Spiderman, Forbidden Journey, The Mummy, Gringotts.

And by "everyone" I mean ...

Don't think they'll change the "drop". Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've heard/read ZERO negative reviews of the drop. I can't recall anyone complaining that it's too intense or too small. Our whole family loved it, and we have quite a range of intensity tastes. I think they really got the fun vs thrilling balance spot on.

Looking forward to our upcoming trip, daughters high graduation. we have all FP+ booked, got all the good rides, we also have park hoppers. I haven't been on any of sites recently, trying to not over immerse myself before we get to WDW. I've skimmed through some of the threads on RotR but don't have the patience to read everything from the beginning. So here's my question, Can you only get a boarding pass for the ride in the park and on the day of your visit. And I'm assuming you need to try at the EARLIEST time possible? Thanks for the replies and sorry for the dumb question. :joyfull::cool::banghead::D

Everyone who wants to ride has to have tapped into the park, on that day you want to ride it. Then, you use MDE to join a boarding group. You can have one person do that and add everyone to the same BG, much like you do when selecting FPs. Best advice is to arrive about 45 minutes prior to park open to ensure you are in the park before opening. You can request a BG when the park opens, not sooner. And, do it immediately as the groups are typically gone within minutes.

Any indications at how long the boarding group system is going to continue?
I heard FL wants to keep it as long as they can since they still have a lot of issues. More than ca. As for ca they want to end it but it all depends on the crowds in the am.

My bus driver source gave me an update this afternoon. New date for the end of boarding groups is October 32, 20never. Which is also the date that Space Mountain is getting shut down to take out all the fun bumpy parts, ToT is getting shut down to be rethemed to Song of the South, Horizons is being reintroduced as Awakenings inside Spaceship Earth, and Dinoland is being shut down to be rethemed as Zootopia.
