Access to info is at ones fingertips ( literally ) instead of back in the day when no one had a smartphone. You still have trouble digesting that there are three other parks to go to instead rather than that MK day with media? Sure would help our stress level to go to MK on another day.

This is why people think Disney sucks. Why is it that they always feel the need to kiss the rear end of their bought and paid for sycophant bloggers and media flunkies at the expense of regular guest?

Because last minute weather related cancellations and choosing to schedule a media event that closes a section of the park with just a few days notice (during one of the busiest weeks for Spring Break) are completely the same thing

Guest Relations will be busy when some guests make a beeline for it like they do when F! show gets cancelled.

Then you haven't been in bottlenecks on NYE.

The vast majority of people visiting that day won’t know until they arrive, if then - I expect a lot to be turned away at the end of the night

Yeah, lighting they don't play with. If lightning strikes(I believe this means seen) within ten miles of the park, it is Disney policy for all outdoor rides/attractions/shows to be shut down.

I was there, not a drop of rain but intermittent lighting strikes.

Yeah that really stinks, hope you were not there for that.

You want to talk about upset? 8K guests seated at Fantasmic theatre at DHS and at last minute show gets cancelled. Have a good night!

Yeah, but there will be 5000 people there that day that only find out once they are there. Many guests dropped 10 grand and everything should be up and running. I felt bad today that Remy was down from 9 am and still down when I left at 4PM. Many guests in that area were visibly upset. It's not like they can go back to EPCOT tomorrow like I can. Heck, I can say nothing ever said on this forum is serious, this is a WDW forum after all so the comment was not off the mark. WDW can do this kind of stuff at 11 PM or 1 am, it doesn't have to be when they are open disregarding the guests dropping in many cases money they took years to save for a trip to WDW.

I'd limit my stress by going somewhere else but that's just me.

I’m doing another park that day as it is. Thanks for the advice though.
