Alright got some questions for the pros! (I realize a lot of these questions are impossible to answer but would love your gut/opinions anyway)
- When it comes to dates that are booked what generally is the likelihood that you can just keep checking and pick up a cancellation? And if you can, do you normally see that closer to the date you go or about a week out as people get COVID or have other plans pop up or do they hang on until the last possible minute and cancel the day before or what? Any gut on this?
I ask because we have a 4 day trip and got everything sorted with exception of HS on 3/18. It was available when we started but then there was a tech issue, then it wasn’t then I saw it again but then there was a different ticket issue (fixed), then saw it again but had park pass issue (fixed) so by the time I waited 3 hours on hold it was gone again and now I am not seeing it pop up anymore despite checking like a lunatic all hours of the day and night. Should I give it up? Am I wasting my time? Or are we just far enough out that people are hanging on and y’all think it will pop back up?
Similar question on dining. Anyone seeing trends there? We got a couple great ones so fine either way and using the reservation finder so at least there I don’t have to constantly check and make myself crazy. If it pops up it pops up but I am curious again when people are seeing that happen. Last Thursday night overnight into Friday am a bunch of reservations suddenly popped up so I got probably a dozen alerts and even though was going for BOG it was gone but a CRT was there so snagged that. Since then - zero alerts. Zero in a week and I have 8 set. Just wondering again if we are in that in between phase where people have all planned but aren’t having to cancel yet or if people are canceling less due to the reduced capacity and additional planning required to go (ie - are only expert planning Liners going and taking all the ADRs because the people that would normally just show up and wing it are being weeded out by the park pass and ticket requirements?).
Anybody got a guess as to what Remy’s opening will do to plans? As in does anyone think Remy’s opening will see people cancel HS park passes and shift to Epcot? It is the only park still available on 3/18 so just curious. While we are on Remy’s and wild guesses - anyone want to take a guess as to when it will open? I know it’s done and good to go just curious if you had to pick a date they are going to launch what date would you guess?
On fully booked days (where you have much less flexibility to bounce and just go to another park) are people still skipping out on HS if they don’t get RoR BGs in the am or on those days since they don’t have the ability to just cancel and go to a different park are people staying in HS and trying for the 1pm BGs (thus making those a little harder to get than they would be on lower crowd days)?
Started planning this trip only 3.5 weeks out so feeling very off my game! Please send some pixie dust my way for sanity and cancellations! Thanks all!
