This Dis is like high school. The "cool" kids are the ones who bash Disney at every turn. Every issue is blown out of proportion. I picture those people as wearing leather jackets and smoking.

The "nerds" are the people that try and stay optimistic, and also those who follow the rules. They get that Disney is first and foremost a business and are selling us a product. One that we can buy or not buy. Those are the people that in my mind have cuffed jeans and nerd glasses.

Why do people always feel a need to put people into groups? The way I see it, this is a discussion about Disney, by people with an interest in Disney.

Just back. We had fast pass plus. Yes, there was times we did not use it. But I was always able to adjust to another park if I did not use them. Or change times. More complicated. I was still able to pull fast pass at toy story with. My ap.

Eh it still doesn't hurt anyone. . I know it sounds trite but people really have no reason to read it if they aren't interested. Don't mean that in a snotty way just that if everyone walks away it will die and if not then people can argue, fuss, consider or discuss. I read it because I've had a migraine for days and it keeps my head just busy enough not to hurt as bad and not to barf. Lol, tmi I'm sure.

How foolish of me.
So I pay to get into the parks to look around, and the rides are just a side item they are nice enough to let me use once in awhile.

It all makes so much more sense!



I still love Disney. I maintain I still had an over-all great vacation.
I just really felt cheated a few times.

I do have faith they will work out the kinks and it will even out.

It is just that Right Now it feels like unless you are paying the extra to stay in a Disney resort you experience is limited to just a few attractions per day.

So those who aren't thrilled with every move Disney makes are rule breakers who don't understand Disney is a business? I think I'm going to need a map to follow that logic.

IMO critical voices are exactly what the WDW resort needs right now, not fanatics gleefully cheering the run over the cliff. Viewpoints and arguments aren't helped by demonizing opposing voices -- something I hope America as a whole recognizes soon.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Even the "cool" kids who bash are good people on the inside.

I may be a planner-type... but the other bunch of ppl I travel with are all not. They enjoy walking around, reminiscing, taking pics of the haunted mansion, actually ENJOYING the stuff along the wait in the graveyard to get into it, and if they don't get into a particular must-see restaurant cuz they didn't make an ADR they pick ANOTHER ONE that is open. It's not a big deal. Really. Just cuz it is to you, you should be sorry for indicating WDW *required* the work you *choose* to put into it.

Geez. It's a park. The BEST ONE IN THE WORLD. 99% of people out there can just buy tickets and go have fun.
Yes, WDW *is* that complicated and is becoming more so, thanks to FP+.

I spend three times as much time planning WDW vacations than I do any other vacations. I don't even plan that much. I can't imagine how many hours are wasted by uber-planners.

According to some people, yes. You should just be happy they let you in the gate and you get to be there.

The Dis is a discussion board. A discussion board about Disney.

That includes people from all over the world, with many varied opinions about Disney.

Geez louise, talk about insulting people. Didn't you make a remark a few pages ago about how these types of posts don't get us anywhere?

Hehe and the corollary, Why do people always feel offended by someone else thinking about ppl in groups that they don't already and will never know.

I just think her comment is a bit hypocritical, given her comments a few pages back.
