    Sad NextGen in DL

    According to Al's article, the Big Brother program hatched in the swamps of Orlando, NEXT GEN/Fastpass Plus, WILL be comming to Walt's Original MK in about two years. Folks, I will say this. The day Anaheim allows TDO to dictate when and where we ride OUR attractions replete with TV screens, computer games, and daycare center games in highly themed queues, is the day we lose DL............

    As far as I'm concerned, they are still in testing. I've heard some nasty stuff about it from people who were in the test group.

    If it comes we all need to complain at city hall. And get our friends to complain at city hall. Start fb groups and what not to keep that crap out of DL!!!
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    Don't freak out just yet. Next Generation queues aren't even as horrific and video game-filled as people make them out to be either. Just take a deep breath and relax.

    I thought NextGen was the ahead-of-time, online reservation system for rides. Is it synonymous with interactive queues now? Because interactive queues rock.

    They are getting feedback from those who are testing it out. We'll see if it's considered a success by the guests after the data is analyzed.

    For now, I guess we should wait to see what actually happens.

    Two parts of the Next Generation experience.


    In WDW they started doing trials of reserving ride times. The people who have been part of this have gotten to reserve 4 rides times. It may not sound like a lot but pick 9 attractions you would ride in a day. Would you use 4 FPs on the 9 or more or less? 9 by the way is the average number of attractions a guest does in a single day.

    Can someone explain this NextGen thing? I've read some about it but I feel I am not getting the whole story or at least I'm not getting the facts straight.

    I highly doubt that this will even materialize in DL.

    What I took from the article is that FP return times will be implemented in DL in 2013 so they can test all year.

    I don't think they should give the passes to people with claustrophobia, etc. and I hope that problem spoken of in the article is resolved.

    It's pretty involved.

    Some has to do with making reservations before coming for not just hotels and restaraunts but also to ride attractions at specific times.

    Some is about have more interactive queues.

    Some is about using RFID that identifies you specifically so characters, CMs and less animated objects can interact with you already knowing your name and other preferences.
