  • News NextGen in DL

    According to Al's article, the Big Brother program hatched in the swamps of Orlando, NEXT GEN/Fastpass Plus, WILL be comming to Walt's Original MK in about two years. Folks, I will say this. The day Anaheim allows TDO to dictate when and where we ride OUR attractions replete with TV screens, computer games, and daycare center games in highly themed queues, is the day we lose DL............

    As far as I'm concerned, they are still in testing. I've heard some nasty stuff about it from people who were in the test group.

      If it comes we all need to complain at city hall. And get our friends to complain at city hall. Start fb groups and what not to keep that crap out of DL!!!
      In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

        Don't freak out just yet. Next Generation queues aren't even as horrific and video game-filled as people make them out to be either. Just take a deep breath and relax.

          I thought NextGen was the ahead-of-time, online reservation system for rides. Is it synonymous with interactive queues now? Because interactive queues rock.

            They are getting feedback from those who are testing it out. We'll see if it's considered a success by the guests after the data is analyzed.

                For now, I guess we should wait to see what actually happens.

                  Two parts of the Next Generation experience.


                  In WDW they started doing trials of reserving ride times. The people who have been part of this have gotten to reserve 4 rides times. It may not sound like a lot but pick 9 attractions you would ride in a day. Would you use 4 FPs on the 9 or more or less? 9 by the way is the average number of attractions a guest does in a single day.

                    Can someone explain this NextGen thing? I've read some about it but I feel I am not getting the whole story or at least I'm not getting the facts straight.

                      I highly doubt that this will even materialize in DL.

                        What I took from the article is that FP return times will be implemented in DL in 2013 so they can test all year.

                        I don't think they should give the passes to people with claustrophobia, etc. and I hope that problem spoken of in the article is resolved.

                          It's pretty involved.

                          Some has to do with making reservations before coming for not just hotels and restaraunts but also to ride attractions at specific times.

                          Some is about have more interactive queues.

                          Some is about using RFID that identifies you specifically so characters, CMs and less animated objects can interact with you already knowing your name and other preferences.

                            I HATE HATE HATE the idea of these. I'm completely agree with the majority.

                                  Next Gen from what I've read is just not how I would like to go to theme parks....I don't want to HAVE to pan my day ahead of time of wait 40 + on any ride I want to go on it...maybe slow days it wont be so bad but going during the summer...and not making "ride reservations" seems like your get at max 8 rides down the whole day and have waited an hour or more in each line
                                  Happy Halloween!!!

                                    It's an option, it's not mandatory. You don't have to use it.

                                    I feel like NextGen is for visitors who are coming to the park for the first time, and may not be coming back soon. Someone here (MiceChat) from Australia is going for the first time to Disneyland for a short time, and I wouldn't be surprised if she was more focused on getting on rides and seeing the characters, than looking at every little detail of the park.

                                    People who have annual passes, and have the luxury of going more than once a year, obviously won't use it, because they can take their time around the park; some people can't.

                                    All I'm saying is, put yourself in the place of an everyday guest, who only has 3 days at the happiest place on earth, doesn't go a lot, and wants to fit as much magic in as possible.
                                    Fear of the unknown.

                                    They are afraid of new ideas.


                                    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

                                      ^no because if you don't use it.....the lines for something like will be over an hour at 9 AM....everyday the current plan is to have

                                      Next Gen..then FP...then a standby line so it might be not forced on people but it will be almost imposable to go to the parks and walk on rides like Pirates because of this kinda system and that's pretty scary
                                      Happy Halloween!!!

                                        See that, to me, would be a complete shame and misses the point of Disney parks entirely. (I also wouldn't make that assumption either)
