Thanks! We got a reservation at around 3pm, so worked out well! :)

MK opened at noon - I got on a Disney Springs resort bus at 11:00 to the TTC.

Ok so you were not here. The weather was FINE.

I felt the winds in the area where still kicking until at least 2 PM. I cannot imagine how tough it must be to drive a high profile vehicle such as a bus with those winds and those gusts. I am sort of surprised to hear they had busses running at what noon? I am also certain it must have been tough to get folks into work for many reasons that day.

i waited 40+ minutes for a bus back to Disney Springs. Finally someone else (who had waited longer than me) talked to a driver of another bus and he said he would take us there. I think there was a lack of drivers yesterday, which makes sense. Could be some of the data wasn’t working as well? I know the mobile ordering wasn’t working at the contemporary.

No. I only watched the radar off and on for hours, tracking the storm as it made its way across Florida, not to mention checking weather stations in and around the property. I'm sure that provided zero pertinent weather information for the area. :rolleyes: I'll bet you would have thought the parks should have been opened the afternoon after Ian came through because, "it looks fine to me, no storm here!". Have a magical day.

They did not offer anything like this.

Were you here yesterday?

HauntedPirateNov 11, 2022

I do as well, but you still are out a full-day admission for 6 hours of park time. If they have any semblance of a clue left when it comes to customer service, they would have granted anyone visiting a park yesterday a complimentary park day on the DME account, expiration at the end of 2023. That would have been the old-guard response, because they valued guests. The new guard just sees consumers and wants their money. It costs them nothing to do that, plus they have to book a trip if they want to use it.

While I agree with what is being said, I highly doubt anyone bought a one day ticket for MK yesterday.

HauntedPirateNov 11, 2022

"There was no storm yesterday" The storm passed through the area in the early morning, but you do you. I was there for Ian, so I have a frame of reference. However, I agree with the sentiment of MK being only open for 6 hours, yet they gladly charged full price. That's criminal, for lack of a better term at the moment.

It would be just as easy as predicting what you be in the mood to eat 6 months in advance.

There was no storm yesterday. MK was only open for 6 hours so people went elsewhere.
