    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    Anaheim is watching carefully what happen in WDW with the new systems. Disneyland will import only what it will work.

    I'm not sure Disneyland will change everything, because they didn't in the past (i.e Keys to the World card).

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    Why not just have reservations made the day of only from smart phones or kiosks? Or at least a the day before. It will put APs, Hotel guests,offsite guests, and day ticket guests on equal footing. I feel bad for one day visitors...I have the feeling they are going to get really screwed the most out of all this.

    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    In WDW the resort guests are a huge force, and take up most of the restaurant reservations.

    In DLR there will be plenty left for the reular ticketed guests to enjoy. Currently APHs and resort guests don't take all the FPs or reservations for anything else up.

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    I was at WDW last week and one problem we encountered with the new system is that the Mickey turnstiles don't recognize annual passes. The machines at Epcot and DHS that suck in your card and spit it back out were fine, but the ones with the colored Mickey ring we always had to get a manager to swipe our Annual Pass. That's something they'll have to work out before it comes here.

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    Admittedly it might be a losing effort but I would try to avoid any Disney initiatives in personal data mining, monitoring my personal movements around attractions, restaurants, retail purchases, etc within their resort confines. Sometimes I get the feeling we are all just a short time away from being participants in a real-time Google Earth and someone from Disney is sitting at computer monitor watching my every step.

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    Logistically? Yes, I'm sure they can. I'm hoping they don't.

    I also suspect that only a portion of the ride capacity/restaurant capacity will be available to pre-book. The day guests must still have access to everything, though they will have to wait behind the pre-booked people.

    Either way, it's not a system I see myself using much. I don't like to plan much ahead of time. And I don't like having to keep track of what time it is, and what's scheduled next.

    I think we are just going to have to see. Disneyland has a very different crowd than WDW and what TDA will use will be very different than what TDO.

    How is this irrelevant? I would think that if someone was planning a vacation, or even just wanted to go for the day that this system would be very relevant.

    I also don’t see how this takes all the fun out of vacationing. It is reserving a time to ride one or two rides a day. It isn’t forcining anyone to have their entire day structured. As far as restaurant reservations, there are not that many sit down places in Disneyland. The few that are there are usually booked up from phone reservations anyways. I just don’t see this affecting things that much.

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    I can see both + and - to this. As a guest with a multi-day stay, I can see myself utilizing it to maybe 'book' a ride or two a day for a particular time just because I like riding it then, like RSR at night or Splash at midday on a hot summer day, or to guarantee a ride on a new attraction. But I cannot see myself booking every minute of my day out so that I have a hard & fast schedule or have to waste time re-booking multiple things when the inevitable glitch happens in my day. And I think that's how the majority of people will be using the system.

    But, I don't really know enough about the way WDW works it's system (or how the system IS working) to decide if it would or wouldn't work at DLR. I'm sure there's something there to be sure that the system is basically fair (not necessarily completely equal, just basically fair), like a limit on per day or per stay ride reservations, monitoring magic+ reservations vs 'regular' fastpasses available. I can't believe that TPTB would completely 'screw' one type of guest to the benefit of another type of guest.

    IDK, maybe my screen name should be 'Pollyanna'?

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    I see it working well. I think it's fair that people coming from out of town to be able to get a first crack at some of the top run rides for booking a hotel.

    What I find unfair is Disney will not give APers any breaks in price for now being put to the back of the line. Nor will Disney open up additional days to already well blocked out passes. Sounds like Disney is going to make out either way.

    Do you have an AP? Customer loyalty card? Library card? Bank account? Credit Card?................

    According to Disney. The number of reserved FPs per guest will depend on how busy it is, less on busy days, more on uncrowded days. In the trials guests got 3 FPs per day. All resort guests get the Magic Bands wether they use it or not, and don't need to use it as ticket media. APH's can get a band to use, or not. RFID will make it's way into all ticket media, for guests not using the bands. There is no tiering of how much you can do with the Magic Bands based on what resort level you stay in.

    With the way they plan to limit the FPs, I know in my case this would leave many extra FPs available. Also if you don't use your FP or change the FP reservation to a new time or attraction, you loose it. That will inveriably happen and leave many FPs unused as a result. Another factor is you only get FPs with the Magic Bands in one park per day, so hopping would not be advantageous for FP collecting.

    A big advantage at DLR is you can arrive late in the day, and have FPs reserved for time you can still use. Unlike today where you had to arrive in the morning to get a RSR FP to use tonight.

    Re: Can DLR support the MyMagic+ system?

    I honestly don't think that MyMagic+ has a place in Disneyland. We have over a million annual passholders, and I can garuntee you, hardly any of them will plan out their next visit to the resort a month in advance...
