NextGen could potentially decide if you actually wanted to ride the carousel of progress, or if you're just there because you couldn't get FP+ Reservations for anything else, or if you're just there because it's got AC... THAT is what worries me.
Thank you for explaining certain things on here, I realize you can't go too far into detail without burning your bridges so to speak, but can you say how much capacity is down at the MK and other parks thanks to bugdet downsizing or in general just removing and not replacing attractions??
The fact that we've gotten to this point in time in general saddens me, everything seems like it is being penny pinched and scrooged to the point where they may actually permanently damage one of the great treasures of entertainment this country has to offer. I don't know how much longer we have to continue down this path before this gets corrected, or if are we approaching a breaking point where the average tourist says to heck with Disney World??
So with this in mind, does this mean I need to reserve every attraction with FP+ before leaving for vacation to ensure Disney knows that I really want to ride it, and not just default to it when others are too busy?
Perhaps that's why all the old rides have magic band scanners installed.
(The science behind FastPass is pretty simple, but if you're not stuck waiting in line, you're crowing the walkways and shops and restaurants in the park)
