Are you happy Disneyland and Disneyworld are opening with Covid restrictions?   The Real You: Personality Poll

Started 5/1/21 by Showtalk; 4078 views.

I also saw that Disney is going to have $100 sandwiches.

I call that highway robbery. Nope. If I go to my grave without ever having set foot on a Disney property or spent one dime with them, ,I'll die happy.

It might be more fun if they limit the numbers in lines. I remember waiting a long time for every ride.

Bingo. Yet another huge reason I wouldn't find even a free trip there to be pleasant.

The $100 sandwich feeds uo to 8 people, so it is more like $12+ per person.

It takes about an hour a ride of waiting in lines.

Last time I went to Disneyland Tokyo, they had advanced tickets that you could get by pressing a button in front of each ride and getting a ticket with the ride name, a number and time range printed on it. The time was usually 30 or 40 minutes later.

The secret is to zig zag from one side of Disneland to the exact opposite side and pick up the next ticket. Then zig zag back again to the opposite side one next to the ride you first got your first ticket for.

If you do this properly and continue going to rides on the opposite side to pick up their advanced tickets. You usually have only a 5 minute wait with your advanced ticket if you get their in the time window they specify.

Then you dart to the other side and also have only a 5 minute wait for the next ride. If you continue that for the entire day... you're really walked all the way across Disneyland approximately 20 times, but you can get on each ride with only a 5 minute wait each. But you're constantly walking all day long which is quite tiring.

Another way to do it is have the adults in the group pick up advanced tickets for the kids and as soon as the kids get on a ride, have the adults go to the other side and pick up more tickets for the kids. The kids will have a blast and the parents and kids will be totally worn out by the end of the day! (* CHUCKLE *)

FWIW

That is a good system. I wonder if the CA Disney has that ticket approach. When I went, they didn’t,

Last time I went to CA Disney was 1977. (They didn't have them.)

Last time I went to Tokyo Disney was 1986. (They had them them.)

Last time I went to Disney World was 2004. (They had them.)

And yes, it's a good system, if you have a ticket number and arrive within the printed time (15 minute leeway), you usually only have a 5 or so minute wait to get into the ride. They give those on time priority. You show them your timestamped ticket as you go through the gates and they have this very short line to the front of the line. If there are not enough with timestamped tickets, they let the others whom have been waiting 45 minutes to over an hour and a half in as well.

When I went to Tokyo Disney, it was with my family and my sister-in-law's family. We had 2 kids at the time and sis-in-law had 2 kids. So rather than have to zig zag across the entire park, we 4 adults zig zagged and just picked up the tickets for the 4 kids and as soon as they got off of one ride, we would rush to the other side of the park for the next ride. The kids had a ball. It worked like this:

If you went from one ride to the next one to it and picked up the tickets, the timestamp would be like 45 minutes to an hour later, so that's why we criss-crossed or zig-zagged to speed up the process. But at the end of the day, kids were tired of riding so much and parents were tired of walking across the entire park about a dozen times. (* CHUCKLE *) But it was so fun watching the kids get off of one ride, run across the park to the next one and then back across the park to yet the next and next and next one.

Now that isn't something the drive-by media bothered to say in their propaganda piece. They just said $100 sandwich.

Way too long. Way, way, too long.. Not what I would call a pleasant experience or something associated with "the happiest place on earth". Crowds and long lines are things I only associate with strongly negative experiences.
