    Mask Mandate?

    Like everything else, Disney will apparently do whatever Universal does a week later. The mask requirement is already off the Uber/Lyft apps as far as I can tell. I'm not even sure masks will make it past Memorial Day. They know how much they're keeping people away, particularly now with the...

    50th Birthday Trip Planning - 5/26 to 5/31

    Coronavirus

    I also wonder how many of the anti-vax "pundits" got vaccinated weeks or months ago. They say Trump got it in January, which would have been just about as early as possible when the vaccine and its effects would be least known? But that's what we're most concerned about? That all happened...

    Coronavirus

    This is the Chapek quote on masks: Masks may not be mandatory come Memorial Day. Disney knows how big of a deterrent they are. I'm probably feeling mean, but maybe it's a shame we can't put everyone refusing the vaccine who doesn't have a real medical condition signed off by a real doctor...

    Coronavirus

    I don't know how good this news is going to be. For a long time, you didn't really have two feet to stand on refusing to wear masks and appropriately distance. Everyone said masks. Now you've got people who are going to be coming in to a lot of places without masks saying the CDC said it was...

    Skyliner for Studios Rope Drop

    A lot has changed. Even with a later start by arriving in your car, you can move through Runaway Railway pretty quickly now. Slinky is then probably about a 30 minute wait and Smugglers Run around 25 minutes. But it's a lot of scurrying from attraction to attraction before you can take much more...

    50th Birthday Trip Planning - 5/26 to 5/31

    I'm not sure you can hijack your own thread.

    What to rope drop at each park?

    There is no great way to do the Studios that I've seen. Tower of Terror is a problem because it operates at like 30% capacity and is still prone to breakdowns. So if you opt to do it first, I'd do Rock n Roller Coaster while I was there and then the Railway and save Toy Story Land for the end of...

    Coronavirus

    I will have to tell the story of when I tried to get a microchip installed in my hand one of these days. It's pretty funny.

    Coronavirus

    Great! It's certainly reassuring until our brains start coming out of our ears or the microchip causes us to invest our life savings in dogecoin. But that has to be a year away at least.

    What to rope drop at each park?

    Splash is probably the biggest priority at Magic Kingdom at the moment, though it doesn't usually open until official park open and even then, it's more unreliable than ever. It's a little late for a big chart, but I can pull one up showing the waits and downtime. So for MK, you'll likely need...

    Skyliner for Studios Rope Drop

    But this is 8:11am on May 3rd. Before anyone from the parking lot would have made it over, we're on our way in. This is 8:07am where anyone from the buses would be streaming in in this direction. You can see it's basically nobody. And it's not because they've already arrived. So that's what...

    Skyliner for Studios Rope Drop

    I would check the app to see when the bus is expected to arrive, assuming they're running. The key is to arrive no later than 5 minutes before the Skyliner comes online, which is typically 8am with a 9am open. So 7:55am at the latest. If the bus will get you there by then, go for it. But if...

    A lot closer to 45 seconds than 5.5 hours.

    Ride Wait Time Chart

    Well, the good news is that the wait times are typically exaggerated by about 30%. And with lines constantly moving, it's a little easier to deal with a 30 minute wait when there are that many people in front of you. And if Disney eases distancing in order to let more people in, then the anytime...

    What to rope drop at each park?

    It might help if you tell us what your first three attractions at each park usually are and how many days you plan to spend at each. At Magic Kingdom, there are five or six reasonable first stops. At Animal Kingdom, if you're early enough, it's still Flight of Passage, River Journey, Safaris...

    Skyliner for Studios Rope Drop

    My strong recommendation would be to Uber to the Swan and walk over if possible. There is no guard there so you just pull in and get dropped off. No stories or mobile orders necessary. The only issue is availability that early and potential surge cost. Like a couple of weeks ago, it would...

    Coronavirus

    A can might have convinced Jersey. Florida is Seltzer and I'd be surprised if it wasn't just worth giving out 24 than trying to haggle over whether 12 is enough. To get vaccinated at Publix to start, you had to log in early to get an appointment. I don't want to die, but I'm also not getting up...

    Coronavirus

    I admit I did not read this 1000% but it seems to be missing how many of the variants got past those who are through with complete immunization and if the 67 death number is also starting from April 27th. Somehow Florida still stands. I couldn't tell you how. I legitimately thought COVID was...

    Ride Wait Time Chart

    Here are the charts from yesterday. They waits are a little on the below-average side for the most part. What's "normal" is constantly changing, unfortunately, as Disney ups capacity at its parks and attractions. Some of it offsets. If you let three more people into the park and open three...
