lol! o_O- Dear lord.... try and see the sarcasm in there. I didn't think it could possibly be more obvious. My bad!

Yes back open today

MDE app is showing they are open today and tomorrow on regular schedule. Guessing it was that mini monsoon the other day.

So... we're here at WDW and planning on going to Typhoon Lagoon tomorrow (5/5). Any word on if it's going to be open? Thanks.

lol! o_O- Dear lord... chill... it was related to the storm. There was some over flooding, and way too much debris to be cleared on time, some debris also fell on some tubes that might have cracked and they were being looked at. *facepalm* Geez..

So, any word on what the issue was yesterday? Is the park back up and running today?

GoofyernmostMay 04, 2016

No, absolutely not... it was the damn lack of maintenance that Disney practices on a daily basis. Hundreds of attractions running day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year with, allegedly no maintenance. How lucky can one company get. If it had been me that kind of lack of attention would have shut everything down years ago. They must be blessed. Either that or the lack of regular maintenance is the crock of crap that I'm pretty certain it is.

Unfortunately the Disney CP has gotten a reputation as a nest of debauchery which is largely undeserved but the problem is app's like the ones in use at CP just add to the mystique - you probably have 10-15% living on the wild side just like any college dorm anywhere in the world but those CP's living the wild life in public set the image for the rest of the CP'ers in the public's eye.

Most of this so called reputation comes from bitter full time regular Cast Members who are disgruntled with Disney. All college kids are going to behave as college kids would. This is no different at Disney than any other college around the world. I did the college program as well as worked in a full time professional role with Disney. I didn't behave in an out of control manner and neither did many of my friends. While some may act out and rebel during there program to say it's the majority is simply not true.

I find posts like this unfortunate. I'm the one who should calm down? You've created and continue to build quite the reputation for thousands of current and former CPs. Equally interesting that you are constantly auditing their posts??? Who has time for that let alone, more unsettling, the desire? While I've seen young and older people post things that are inappropriate this is equally reckless to trash the College Program students in this manner. If these students are all this carelessly wild which I highly doubt, I certainly would not be inviting them to come live with me? Wanting CPs as you depict their reputations, as room mates repeatedly cause me to question the credibility of the reputation you are building for them. Who condemns the morals of these individuals along with their illegal behaviors and repeatedly wants to share a residence with them? It is so easy to trash Disney and their College Program under the veil of anonymity and collaborated by equally anonymous alumni's. I have no doubt the program had and has some students that lack maturity and common sense but that is typical of both youth and all age demographics. Heck there is hardly a career path, educational venue or walk of life that doesn't have individuals that have poor judgement.

Not too fast, not too slow. It appears to be just right for a project of this scope.

In the bathrooms? Gross, dude.

ravenMay 04, 2016

Calm down. Who made their reputation? They did. The app is free for anyone, not just for college kids. It's meant to be for posting thoughts and fun things. But the CP's actually list the name of their building, address and what kind of fun they are looking for. I cannot post any specifics here because they are too graphic. But they "constantly" gripe about security, their transportation, roommates, lack of sex, lack of drugs, guests and having to work when they want to spend the day in the parks instead. They also "constantly" make posts about looking for sex and drugs. I am not "engrossed" with them or am "constantly monitoring" them as you claim. I have been using the app for a long time and just happen to be in an area where they reside. As for the Typhoon Lagoon bash they are having tonight, many have used this app to plan some "fun on the side" in the bathrooms and other ares of the water park during the event. I currently have 2 CP alumni's living with me and have had 3 others as roommates in the past. All of their stories back up everything I've said.
