THIS. WHY did it not happen? Oct 1st was a big disappointment on several levels in person. -

Has there been any information on renewing Disney+ for the people who originally signed up for the Disney+ Founder's Circle? Its ending in November and haven't seen if Disney is going to offer anything like it to those of us that signed up for it it originally.

You mad, Bro?

So..., are they still bundling Woody with Jessie, even with the ending of TS4?, basically Bo Peep's never coming back to DHS isn't she... :( Sulley being in the motorcade is basically pointless when his meet and greet at WDP opened back up and why couldn't they bring out Ian and Barley(since Mei isn't in the parks yet)

Maybe Disney+ could, um... start "sponsoring" this every day since Hollywood Studios apparently doesn't have it in the budget during these trying times to pay for something like this themselves the way they used to?

MrPromeySep 08, 2022

Yeah - why couldn't Disney+ have "sponsored" that?

I booked today solely because I was hoping they would have Pinocchio there for an actual meet. Glad they announced everything in advance, I would have been so disappointed just to see he was in the cavalcade. Saved me time and money. I hate how much character experiences have eroded away post reopen.

Mirabel gets an appearance for Disney+ Day. Should be in the parks. Everyday. Not a cavalcade.

I wish the synergy machine was more fully activated last Oct 1 so we could have gotten free ears for the 50th

He looks so out of place there… …I mean, Star Wars fans actually LIKE That character.
