Yeah it’s weird feeling. Disney is definitely way less fun now. From the lack of planning to the day of stresses with G+ or no G+, ILL or no ILL, trying to game the system if you do G+ it’s just… so much less fun than it used to be.
Do 3 different TPs for each day, based off of morning, mid day and night time riding for the hardest LL you olan on getting per day (if your doing G+) since you wont know when you’ll get it. If notMaybe do alternative park plans for each day, in case you have to switch parks. It will give you something to “plan” for now.
DH and I had this discussion yesterday over lunch.
We are going to tentatively book next years trip…and wait.
If masks are still required, we’ll cancel. Whether people think they’re advantages or not, they are affecting morale on both sides. The CM’s for having to yell repeatedly and for guests being yelled at or having to watch others get yelled at.
If “lack of Disney training” and or shortages are still a thing, I’m cancelling.
I’m sorry, I can’t forgive being chirped at about masks 4 times before I even enter the building, but I can have a teen standing on his seat in SE screaming about he he’s touching the ceiling before the mammoth scene with his flashlight on to show his friends in the car behind. He was grabbing at props and being vulgar the entire ride and not a peep from the attractions hosts.
If Chapek is still in charge, we might cancel. The ship has some pretty gigantic holes, and a lot more popping up everyday. Business is booming because of the travel ban being lifted and people rescheduling cancelled trips, but at some point people are going to be tired of spending 3 times as much and getting none of the “Disney feels” they’ve come to know/love/expect.
We made scavenger hunt bingo cards. DS really enjoyed the All Ears “challenge” YouTube videos last year and after we booked our trip, we entertained ourselves with discussions about what should be included in our scavenger hunt based on our resort, park days, dining locations etc. We have a 10 day tournament planned for our trip and the winner gets a $25 Disney Gift Card. Kept our energy up and gave us something to ponder together day to day.
I can’t really relate. We had a trip booked May 2020, then moved it to October 2020, then May 2021, then November 2021. By the time we got to 60 days, I wasn’t all that excited and didn’t know if the trip was going to happen. By the time November arrived, we were so busy with other things that we barely had time to pack and the G+ situation was making me angry. It didn’t hit me that we actually were going to do the trip until we crossed into Florida on our drive down. I think I was numb from all the cancellations and lack of planning.
We aren’t doing another Disney trip in the near future.
