In all my years of being a member of this board, I never thought I'd see the day when someone would actually want the hat back...

Wouldn't it be nice if there were a purpose-built land that could hold all-things Star Wars? Then they could build a 13-story Toy Story ball in front of the Chinese Theatre.

I wonder if they will stop putting junk in front of the theater once the Mickey ride opens?

Do you have any news on Jedi Training? Ther are no times showing past the end of this month. Is this also a victim of the cuts?

How is this "show" even still around. 2 1/2 years old. Bring back a good ol fashioned parade. Why is MK the only location with a daytime parade? We used to have one at MGM, AK and Epcot. I loved the Christmas overlay to the parade at AK. It was simple but cute.. And who didn't love smelling Minnies hot cocoa bathtub in the air!

It's the goal for us as consumers. But short wait times = less people in the parks = less profit for Disney = risk of budget cuts = bad for consumers. At the same time the lower attendance could partially be to do price increases, which makes this a negative cyclical effect.

Why do we treat short wait times as a bad thing? Shouldn't that be the goal?

Granted it was a slower season however we found in the course of 3 weeks only a couple attractions to be close to accurate. Peter Pan being one. Cut most in half and that was the ballpark wait time. At a bout 8 pm Frozen said 60 and there was zero guests in the stand by. Test Track single rider 40 minutes it was 5 minutes. Everest 25 single 20. The wait for standby was your walk to load. We arrived at the MK at 1015 am and left at 130pm. Rode Space, Peoplemover, Buzz, Indy, DWarf, Under Sea, Mansion, Sawyer, lunch Splash Thunder and Pirates. We had no problems getting FP+ after our first 3. We left and went swimming. We with some effort we’re able to get FoP twice same day within a couple hours. I don’t know what is up with the inflated wait times but our resorts were not crowded and neither were the restaurants other than the very Popular quick service. Even high end Springs were offering 40% off at lunch. That’s a heck of a discount This is free dining season and we just didn’t have problems anywhere overall and we always travel to WDW at this time of year.

This has been our experience excluding the weekends during the day. Bonus awful behaviour near closing. Epcot on 15th Sept we entered the stand by wait time for Frozen at 9:40pm (10pm park close) with a posted 50min wait. Cast Member further in the line tells us it is actually only a short wait - I timed it at 11 minutes and 40 seconds from entering the line to being seated on the ride! We didn't get out in time to ride again but the Disney app always showed the 50min wait up to closing.
