    Re: 9/18: The Party's Over

    Some quick studies were commissioned by the Guest Relations team this summer, and it was determined that upwards of 5,000 people per day, almost all of whom were tracked as Annual Passholders, were going through the Fastpass line at Radiator Springs Racers with a GAC. At an attraction like Racers that was carrying an average of 20,000 riders per day, 5,000 of them boarding the ride with a GAC is a huge impact. After all, a GAC is valid for the disabled person, and up to five of their friends or family, so while there were often 1,500 or more valid GACs in the park at any one time that meant there were thousands more people joining the GAC card holder at an attraction.
    Hey, I have a solution for this.

    Regarding the "new" plans for Liberty Street and Edison Square: Where do the parade floats go?

      I'm fine with Main Street getting an alleyway for the public... so long as it does not cut down on space for the parades to be behind Main Street in anyway.

      Don't like the idea of Disney getting rid of the Cast Member Holiday parties. I say idea because I've never been, so i think it's a nice thing for Cast Members.

      Really don't want Disneyland to go the way of the Magic Kingdom and charging extra for Holiday stuff at Disneyland. I wonder if Disney would really even be making more money that way. I may just never go there again at that time.

        I went to a few cast member parties. Very nice. Not too crowded, except for the lines for half-off food. One time they ran Space Mountain with the lights on. There was always an ornament celebrating the event given for free to the cast member. Executives giving out candy canes.

          As far as the Main Street Expansion goes I am for it, but does this mean there will be no further expansion for Disneyland on the 60th anniversary of the park? If that is the case, this feels like a missed opportunity.
          I am troubled by the cancelling of the holiday party. I have always sung Disneyland's praises when it has come to keeping Walt's spirit alive but this feels like a real denigration.

            Way back in time I convinced Dick and Ron that anyone in a wheelchair should be given access to any attraction. If it meant stopping the motion, like the Mansion, so be it. Who doesn't does have the heart to grant a minute to the disabled? The way we worked the line in the Mansion and Pirates was to allow the party to stay together near the loading area. We always had lots of lost hats, so we gave a hat to the next one in line and asked them to turn it in when they got to the load area. The hat was a cue to the load operators that the waiting time was over for the special guests. Then the waiting disabled party was loaded. It was fair, and the happiness it brought to families who earlier were not allowed to ride was priceless.

                The Next Gen Fastpass they showed off at MK @ WDW this week looks promising at DL if only they keep the gates and roofs that currently house the turn styles because those apart of the the entire enterance to to the park. I would love not to have to wait to walk into the park or have to redirected try to leave by CM: Crowd Control. I don't think Next Gen will work at the attraction level because of the fact that your entire day is base on impromted-to actions and setting a schedual Gat Disneyland make it more of a choir and not a fun day. I think if they do incorperate Next Gen Fastpasses for general guests they can the GCA guests the current fastpasses but increase the return time to match if they were actualy waiting in standby and not on distriubtion rates like its now.

                  Raising AP costs is an acceptable way of trimming the grotesquely bloated AP ranks (discontinuing the program altogether would benefit Disney most in the long run, though...). Complaining about $1.50~ a day access to Disneyland doesn't endear anyone paying $87 for the same privilege to your cause.

                    That's like saying at a buffet you can eat 75 pounds of food so it means it on 10 cents a pound to eat. Who goes 365 days a year?......VERY few.

                      I recently read about a couple doing just this. In the OC Register.

                                  any updates on this? we went to DL and CAP this year from November 16-20 then 26-Dec 1. 11 days was awesome. Would hate to see all of the holiday traditions get taken away and a fee put to experience the fireworks and parade. It's become a yearly tradition for our Hawaii based family. We even bought annual passes this year to experience it for a longer time.

                                  Next year we will go during Halloween to experience something different. I'm not totally stoked about it as it probably means we will not be there for the holidays.
