Watched @len this morning on Instagram, and had a lot (and I mean A LOT) of interesting comments today. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it!
It got me thinking about a lot of things:
-Which attractions would utilize a logarithmic model for wait times at opening? Will secondary attractions also use this model, but translated later in the morning after primary attraction riders have finished the headliners?
-I was surprised to hear that 86% of TP subscribers stay onsite. That explains why most of the testing being done utilizes early entry. I figured the number was high, but not that high!
-If Len is right (and he often is), there is no reason why anyone should get the dining plan when it returns. The speculated cost isn’t going to save park goers any money, and if they miss one meal, they actually LOSE money.
-If Genie+ goes back to the old Fastpass+ rules (reserving rides 60 days out and getting 3 early ride reservations), how much will it cost? I can’t imagine that Disney will charge just $15-35 for this service if it actually becomes paid Fastpass. I’m thinking $50 per person per day or more on the LOW end, and maybe close to $100 on the upper end.
He is speculating the fixed price restaurants will require 2 credits. If I recall, character meals only used 1 credit, so if you did enough of those, then maybe you could come out ahead. Depends on the new prices.
Len did mention this, that some people prepay just for peace of mind. That being the case, you are creating a new surcharge for yourself. Prepaying is usually something you do to SAVE money, not spend more of it! But to each, their own.
