    Re: EPCOT Center walk today..

    the " thrillrides" are going to have a long wait time because that is what most people want to ride so fastpass or not expect a line, as far as mgm goes, the watertower was the original icon, then the theater and now the hat.

    I don't think people have a problem with waiting, its that they have to wait an extended amount that isn't necessay. I think people would take a 2 hour wait better if they didn't think about 50-60 people every 15 minutes were running right past them. Then again I don't think the wait time would be 2 hours because it would flow better in regards to load time anyway.

    I can't see the problem with Fastpass on the 3 or 4 "biggest" attractions. But to have it on Maelstrom is ridiculous.

    At Islands of Adventure, where there are only a limited number of Express Passes for the day, the wait times for their big hitters (Hulk, Spiderman) were also at 90/100 minutes by noon.

    I've never even seen FP functioning on Maelstrom in any of my times ever visiting Epcot.

    Nothing you said upthere made sense to me, but then again, you hardly ever do in my book because all you do is criticize my opinions without taking the time to see where I am coming from... And obviously, you are one of them people who do not understand how FP is a bad thing. I call it the "me, me, me" factor.

    The fact the park was so uncrowded, and FP rides were cluttered with standby guests should be reason enough to see how unnecesary FP system is to most rides.. Even WDW1974 discussed here how management at WDW uses FP to creat false expectations... with one such good example of a lenghty wait at M:S recently when, there wasn't even anyone standing outside the building... It's Disney's way of fooling people into using FP in hopes they can go about and shop or eat (aka Spend $$) while their time to ride comes up. FP must go so that the experience can be equalled and improved to all guests.

    No, I would not want to see my portrait on any WDW structure...simply because I would not want to be associated with the one Disney Resort that offers the least overall quality of them all.. Put it at TDR or even DLR instead.

    I have

    It is my understanding that the Malestrom FP is "off the grid" so to speak. Its FP system is a stand alone, its not tied into the others, so you can get a Malestrom FP at the same time you are holding, say a Test Track FP, for example.

    Oh I don't know... perhaps the Chinese theater, since that's the purpose it was meant to serve when the park was built.
    Yeah, the GMR facade was my first thought too. I just wonder how it would be accepted by the masses. The hat my be too ingrained to be replaced as the park icon.

    Too ingraned? The only thing holding that hat "ingraned" are the bolts that attach it to the Pin store inside of it... and THAT is the real rea$on why it will stay there until it collapses over the shop and kill dozens. Then, it will be replaced forever... for GOOD!

    Absolutely ... they're playing all sorts of games to justify FastPass on attractions where it simply isn't needed.

    They're cutting ride capacity. They're overstating the standby wait. They're doing everything they can to get your ticket scanned into the FP machine so the numbers will justify having it and overstating the popularity of the attraction.

    The reality is there are exactly two attractions at Epcot that I can see FP having a legit need for (IF you're going to offer it at all) ... and those are Test Track and Soarin.

    Nothing else.
