  • [Idea] AP gate entrance & open more gates

    It always surprises me how few gates are used to get into DLR (and DCA for that matter). I think that it would help crowds if they had an AP only entrance, along with opening up more of the gates. I think even in the busiest months the most ever opened is 75%. Given the lines often do move rather quickly, but every once in a while you get stuck behind someone who has a million and one questions holding up the line. Just a pet peeve of mine, anyone else bugged by this too?

    Universal Studios uses a AP only gate and it's great! Disneyland should have this. I hear they tried it, but people got confused an upset if they got in the wrong line. I say, if you can't read a sign I don't feel sorry for you, just get out of the way. haha. They also need a no bags line for the check point. Again, something Universal has. Not that that's a better park, but they are smarter in this area. If it's busy they need an AP line. Period.

      I don't think they need a separate AP gate, things are pretty quick and usually adding something like that just adds more confusion.

      Although, they need to implement a permanent "no bags" line at security, like they have at WDW.

        That would be true if Disneyland didn't have triple the number of passholders as Universal Studios Hollywood. I think it's fine. I mean, how long does it really take to get into Disneyland. Like 4 minutes in a super duper long line? It's not their main problem.

          There are more AP's than normal ticket holders, the AP lines would be twice as long.

            So double the open gates for APs. Plus DLR would get a better view on how many AP'ers actually visit.

              Yes, because scanning the AP's doesn't tell Disneyland how many AP's visit.

                The poor AP's would be stuck in a mile long line if there were separate AP gates.

                What really gets me is how many people act like sheep and will stand in THE LONGEST LINE even though there's 3 other entrance gates with clearly shorter lines.

                  No one's saying the APs couldn't use the regular line. I don't think anyone was implying that. I would just be a quicker alternative way of thinning the crowds if we wanted to use that option on busier days. It's much faster to scan us in than regular guests.

                    I dont have trouble with the secruity point if I dont have a bag, I just pass all the people who have bags and walk in. The Cms didn't seem to mind.

                      I think Disney knows what they're doing balancing labor costs (i.e., number of gates open) with ease-of-entry for their guests. I don't remember waiting more than a minute or two to get through the gate myself.

                          I think AP's should be brought into DL on slave-carrying chairs while other slaves shade them with palm fronds. Still other slaves will have grapes or other fresh fruit available to be put directly into the AP's mouths.

                              This depends on the Security CM (which is just another inconsistency with the whole "bag check" thing). I've tried to walk through without a bag on more than one occasion only to get stopped.

                              Of course, the "bag check" is a whole other topic altogether.

                              No worries ... those of us who have been around and seen this topic come up often have our canned responses.
