I think they're planning on this not being over by Christmas like some other companies appear to be hoping.  They know what capacity they're going to be running at and the number of 2021 tickets already out there and how many 2020 bookings have moved to 21 already.  Otherwise it's an endless stream of "I booked a 3 week holiday but could only get 4 park day reservations made" complaints.

If they attempt to keep demand lower then there's fewer complaints, refunds if/when the virus ramps up again and they have to shutter the parks again, and guest recovery.  Like the dining plan, there's no way they voluntarily shut that down because it was a way to print money, but they have to try and shape numbers into the available capacity.

As soon as they can they will throw those doors wide open and jam us all in like cattle again :D

WDW have announced Mickey’s Not So Scary event has been cancelled.

im wondering if they’ll re-open in July now as it looks like Florida is about to go into a second lockdown

They are only banning 7 and 14 day from end of September next year. Hopefully it’s just for the 50th and not making us pay 10 hopper plus prices

I wonder if cutting the dining plan and the tickets, they are trying to stop people going for 3 week trips and hoping people spend a week there instead, or come back multiple times during a year. People booking 2/3 week trips to Orlando will probably start paying more attention at spending time elsewhere, and maybe that's what they want. Especially if they need to deep clean hotel rooms after guests check out.

No idea but it’s risky if they are aiming at the uk market, parking charges no free dining and now no 14 day ticket. For me there is no point being on site

Everyone I’ve talked to has said they’re going to use Villas now. Absolutely no point

It also seems to tie in with the theme park reservation system as that's now been announced to be in place until the end of September 2021.  No more free magic bands for any resort guests either 😢

They seem to be playing a game of how far can we push these fuckers. 

pre book a park first come first serve 

no ddp 

no vouchers 

no park hopping 

no magic bands 

no discounts 

just start charging for the magic express and be done with it. 
 

they only way this gets worse is they introduce a mandatory hourly kick in the crouch by mickey himself.... with no photo pass

Disney have just announced that Splash Mountain is being redone with a Princess & The Frog theme.

I’ve been listening to the ‘You Must Remember This’ series on Song Of The South and I wonder how explicitly they’ll acknowledge why they’re changing the ride.

Here’s their announcement. The closest thing they mention to racism is that it’s important they’re doing this now and a mention of diversity being good.

I get it, but I am really going to miss that ride. It’s so wholesome and nostalgic and has one of the most widely recognised theme park songs. Gutted to see the iconic ride go ☹️

Such a shame that is being rethemed, racism never once came into my mind when riding this.

Have you ever seen the film? Do you know the story behind the theming?

I think it’s a great idea. It’s never stood out as particularly Disney to me and, while the ride itself is a classic, it’s outdated and needed a spruce up. In all the times I’ve been to Disney I think I rode it once when I was little and once as an adult. It’s boring. It doesn’t even have that ‘it’s so rubbish it’s great’ vibe that other rides like Pirates of the Caribbean has.

 I think reimagining it as Princess and the Frog is a great idea.

Yeah, Song of the South is literally so "problematic" that its never had a home release in the US and it won't be going on Disney+.

OG Disneyland now has no opening date :(  The way Florida is blowing up I can imagine WDW's could soon be going in the bin too.

You nailed my feelings on it. So overrated that I’ve only done it once. The ride is boring, though the drop is fun. P&F is so underrated and has a great villain, plus Tony Baxter’s coming back to lead it. It’s in good hands.

@Abe_Knuckleball_Schwartz I’d look into Song of the South if I were you. Always found it bizarre they made an attraction around a film that by the time it opened, Disney had already started banning.
