Just curious...what did they charge for that other places don’t?
I worked at WDW 40 years ago,,, I’m unhappy with how unkempt it is.. parks require constant maintenance.. I don’t go often but when I’m escorting visitors I see mismatched paint , too many closed rides, good rides replaced with junky “quick fix” replacements just to have something new , lines take up more than 50% of your visit on a good day, there are new procedures in place to minimize waits but it’s too complicated for most people to understand or use it to optimize their visit , parking fees are astronomical (parking is generally free in Orlando) ,, The incompetence that lead to that child being eaten by an aligator last year cost WDW’s insurer $50MM but is indicative of the lack of thought towards the paying customers.
I’ve never been to Disney (and never will go), but I was really turned off when “fast pass” started appearing at theme parks. After spending so much money to bring the kids, I don’t need to be reminded of my second-class status by a special line for wealthier people to get on rides first (what a lesson for the children of the less well-off!). They have every right to set this up, and I have every right to say “F off”. Thankfully the kids are older now...
