Skip to comments.Disney’s Billion Dollar Theme Park Gamble (MyMagic+ System)
Posted on 03/12/2014 8:08:19 AM PDT by C19fan
Guests travel to Walt Disney World seeking the ultimate vacation experience, and Disney continues to develop new ways to deliver the best possible vacation. The company has invested over a billion dollars in their MyMagic+ system, which employs wearable technology and RFID (radio frequency identification) chips to fine tune and customize guests experiences. Disney has high hopes for MyMagic+, but so far many guests arent sold on the idea.

Disney is the entertainment demon for the NWO. They lead children astray into a world of falsity and the occult. Poor Walt is spinning in his grave.
This outfir is MUCH better(and CLEANER) than ANY Pro-Sodomite “Disney” ANYTHING:
Walt was the forerunner of Agenda 21 - Communist concept.
I am SOOO happy my Disney days are over.
I follow some of the WDW-fan sites.
All of them have a very negative opinion of this new system.
It has resulted in longer waits for rides, a tremendous loss of sponteneity, poorer in-park service and inequity for those who don’t want to pay for a tiny and overpriced WDW resort room.
Long-time Disney fans are reporting that Disney has changed drastically for the worse and many are not planning to return.
I never particularly wanted to go to Disneyworld. But my Parents took me, and my Sister, when I was about 11.
What do I remember? Long lines. And that’s about all. I’d have preferred a Major League Baseball game.
This nothing, they have in the near future plans of a Total Rekall Walt Disney experience, and you never wait in line, it never rains,its all done at home.
Plus you get to meet Walt Disney himself, for an additional fee he becomes your personal tour guide.
Theme parks of the future, at home.
You will never know the difference.
quite possibly the most ignorant statement ever posted on FR....Walt Disney was a staunch conservative and leading anti-communist going back to the 30’s when he battled unions in front of his Hollywood studios because he knew they (unions) had communists running the show...when he was given the American Medal of Freedom award from LBJ he wore a Barry Goldwater pin on his lapel....if anything Disney was the forerunner of the Tea Party movement...
but hey- easier to spout nonsense than research facts...
We (Grandparents, daughter & two grandsons) went in January and all had the bands. We loved them. Our daughter used her IPhone to work the FastPass system and we breezed through many long lines. Had to wait a few times when we wanted to save the FastPass for best times. We visited all the parks and enjoyed all the rides we desired. All the parks have many photographers and after they take photos they scan one of the bracelets and all the photos were waiting for us online when we got home. Disney was going to make visitors give bracelets back but too many wanted them as momento. They also opened our door at hotel (Animal Kingdom).
For the record, rumor is that offsite guests (with tickets) will be able to reserve FP+ spots ahead of time by the end of April, if not sooner. They're rolling the reservations out to annual pass holders (not staying on site) now.
Onsite guests are always going to get perks - and pay for it with resort costs that are too high to justify otherwise. As it is, they get the "extra magic hours" access (early entrance to parks or staying after normal closing time) and I wouldn't be surprised if they either get to book FP+ earlier than offsite guests (like 60 days vs. 30 days) or are given 1-2 additional reservations once the general public gets advance bookings.
If you follow the folks over at TouringPlans.com, they actually point out that their computer models shows some of the parks as being more efficient with FP+, even for the "in the know" guests, because you can optimize your schedule without having to run all over the park to get the old legacy FP. I think it's particularly true in Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.
Have you ever been? Yeah. The Hall of Presidents where a Lincoln robot stands, walks forward and gives the Gettsyburg Address is pure occult.
Part of the fun of the old DisneyWorld was terrific things that weren’t on the “planned” list that one could discover while avoiding those long lines.
We stayed at the Yacht Club - concierge level last time we went to Disney Orlando. It was the best hotel experience I’ve had in 65 yrs.
Expensive but awesome.
Hey DUMBA$$, THIS was the guy who KILLED Disney:
GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!
Walt was an all around Good Guy!
Disney went/started going downhill in the late 80’s / early 90’s when it went from family entertainment to the “Hollyweird Model”....
Right when Eisner took over...
My wife and kids and I went in early December, and we used the bands, and updated our FastPasses using our iPhones. It was AWESOME. I hate their politics, and some of their social stances, but we had a fabulous time.
We got a 3 day pass. We used two and then went somewhere we didn’t have to stand in line. As for me, Small World turned me off of Disney forever. Yuck.
