DLP have just launched a new feature for attractions called 'Unlimited Magic'.
Basically it means for some attractions you can either just stay in your seats and ride again and again as many times as you like. Or for some attractions you need to get off and then you can jump into a short re-ride queue and get on again.
The Disneyland attractions this applies to are :-
it's a Small World - stay in seat
Le Carousell de Lancelot - stay in seat
Pinocchio’s Journey - stay in seat
Pirates of the Caribbean - stay in seat, you get to ride the bit you never usually see behind the scenes!
Phantom Manor - stay in seat
Star Tours - leave ride, and then join a short queue
Indiana Jones - leave ride, then join a short queue
Over at the Studios the same applies to :-
Rock’n’Roller Coaster, leave ride, then join a short queue
Flying Carpets over Agrabah - stay in seat
Studio Tram Tour - stay in seat (I can't see why you would want to)
I'm not sure what effect this is going to have on the lines for attractions, but it is going to make some difference as I can see people staying on some of these attractions for hours (Pirates and Phantom) both of which will get better and better as your eyes get accustomed to the darkness.
A few of the full service restaurants have also changed to be 'All you can eat' buffets as part of the 'Unlimited Magic' promotion. they include :-
Rendez-Vous des Stars at the Studios
Auberge de Cendrillon at Disneyland
