Thank you. I’m not going back for a bit, but I can’t believe I missed that!

You missed it just today! We discussed in another thread in the Disneyland topic.

Does anyone know how Disney is communicating this to people already there? I would have been there this week. Even as a hyper parks fan I would’ve had no way to know. I get they were going to implement it at some point, but it’s less than 48 hours notice.

Good question. I don’t think they have even rolled out the updated Disneyland app yet. Hopefully the current version will have some sort of “update available” pop-up when it’s ready. Although guests on site would then need to rely on DL wifi to install it.

I can’t use my own data??

I can try and be your test dummy if I go Friday as planned. However, my NZ kiwi bro is last minute joining me on this trip and there are no park rezzies so I may forgo to spend time with the fam instead. We shall see.

I’ll also try and keep stalking for any drops and maybe I can snatch him one up. He wants to go with me.

I think he just means some guests won’t want to use cellular to download the app.

I will be purchasing this on Saturday and will report back. Im still calling it Maxpass :rofl: I would buy it before only for my account and just for the photos. Maybe once or twice I would get a GotG fp for my daughter. I just figure if PP is $20 and this is $20 might as well get this :blush:

Thanks, Jeff! You are always so kind to get all the information in one place. I really don’t know how you manage all this with 4 young children! I admire your dedication and energy.

IMHO - This will go smoother at DLR because of that park’s history with MaxPass. It functions very similarly and priced the same.

Thanks! The way I do it is I get bored at work. :joy: My job is very haphazard - super busy sometimes and dead others. The life of an accountant.

The dreaded words: month end, quarter end, year end.

A chill just went down my spine. :rofl:

This wife of an accountant also experienced that same chill. Especially with year end looming soon.

Any thoughts on how this will impact rope drop behavior at DL? For me, if I have G+ I remove Space, IJ, and HM from my rope drop choices. So that leaves Fantasyland, JC/POTC, or ROTR.

Similarly, DCA rope drop is effectively narrowed to either RSR or WEB. Then pay for the other one and use LL for basically everything else that sees significant waits.

I think the same rides will be RD targets because most guests will probably not be buying Genie+. But you might get a slight increase in non-LL rides like JC/POTC, etc. But not much, IMO.

Didn’t many use the MaxPass? I was thinking a lot would at least do that portion (even if not paying for ILL rides) so I was thinking that the standby lines would be increasing.
