Magical express ending 1 Jan 2022

My experience is that the mask does not increase the feeling of being hot. As a matter of fact, because the outside air is roughly the temperature of your exhaled breath, it feels the same. I find it more difficult to wear a mask outside in cool temperatures when my breath feels so warm and humid in the mask.

I found the same to be true. In hotter weather, the mask actually was less noticeable to me than in cooler temperatures.

I’m the opposite. I sweat profusely in the heat and the sweat under my mask along with my hot breath makes me feel like I can’t breathe as well. I am perfectly fine in cooler or cold weather with the mask on. We went to an amusement park over Thanksgiving break when it was in the 50’s and 60’s and had no issues keeping our masks on. But last summer in the heat and humidity, I couldn’t stand to have it on for long periods of time.

And outside of Disney fans, I hear no desire from the average people I have been around to go to Disney in the near future.

I hate having to wear a mask all day at school. But what’s worst of all is being outside for over 2 hours every day in the cold and damp weather we have. The masks just get soaking wet (and not from rain). It’s horrible.

That’s what I find here in Washington State. I believe we have very similar weather. When walking with my friend, my bangs are soaking at the end and it’s not from rain either. I hate it.

They are taking away much of the benefits of staying on site. It doesn’t really entice me to stay on site anymore.

But Universal hotels are a fraction of the cost of Disneyjotels. The big anger here is that none of us see Disney lowering prices.

In August we went to Universal and were trying out their water park. We met a woman who was staying at Cabana Bay in order to go to Disney. (If you want a lazy river hotel somewhat near Disney, there is a limited selection). She didn’t even know about Volcano Bay, but she saw it out the window and decided to check it out.

If enough guests stop staying on-site due to high price and reduced perks, Disney will likely either bring back perks or reduce prices.

True. Is Disney kinda doing this already with the 35% off right now, or would that deal have been there in normal times anyway?

I am still so disappointed.

What exactly am I going to do with my passel of children, luggage, strollers, and now apparently car seats?

Disney has always been “easy” for this.

There is zero incentive for me to stay onsite now.

The alternative I see for us will be to hirer a car service to help with all of this but that’s $$, Abd hope they will have to provide car seats.

I will probably invest in another Ride Safer Travel Vest. And drag a convertible seat along too. But yuck. What a pain!

Agree big pain, Hoping somethings comes about by 2022.

I know this is old news, but I am finding myself so frustrated about this today. We’re planning on a larger family trip whenever things are ‘normal’ which would involve 2-3 cars worth of people. Here’s my thought process today: Figured we’d stay off site. That’s an annoying amount to pay for wdw parking. Maybe it’s worth trying to get a few adjoining rooms on property. But then we still pay to park at the resort.
And if we splurge and fly, we still spend money to get from the airport to the resort, again at least two cars worth. Why are they making this difficult all the way around?
I’m less likely to fly because I don’t want to pay extra for airfare and extra for lyft. And I’m less likely to stay on site because there’s no longer that convenience of magical express.

Just FYI, and I don’t know if anyone brought this up already but when we re-booked our trip for this February, our travel agent talked about this. She thinks Disney and Mears are currently at odds because Mears was charging Disney while the parks were closed, or at very reduced capacity. She thinks cancelling the magic express is a negotiating tactic. Either Mears comes to heel, or no more Magical Express. But she thinks they’ll work it out and ME will be back.

This was announced yesterday.

I posted it somewhere in another thread, where there was some discussion. I’ll see if I can find it.

Wonder what she is basing that off of.

Probably just her opinion. Her business is just Disney, so maybe experience working with them.

I posted because this seems possible, in that its a rational reason for ending a perk I think almost everyone likes.
