We'll there will be a lot of parents paying school fines as can't believe how many school age kids are here (American) The buggy parking areas are very busy.
Just been chatting to Bell Services lads and they are saying that many families cancelled their trips the other week and are now visiting after rebooking.
Disney Springs very busy the other night also.

Anyway it's just to point out that despite the price hikes we are seeing Disney isn't affected.

We'll be booking next year as soon as we get back.

What's that written on my forehead!😂😂

School fines are something I've only ever heard of on the Dibb, so I'm pretty sure they don't have them. American schools appear to be far more flexible when it comes to taking kids out of school but still there will be many families who can't or won't do that because they have children of different ages and they can't all skip school.

I'd say enjoy the quiet moments while they last!

Yes, lucky them I think the UK school fines are crazy. (Different topic ! )

Thank goodness for Fps!

This would explain with Disney making Primeval Whirl a seasonally offering after its refurb.

Remember long queues dont make a busy park. They allegedly cut throughput by closing capacity and having less CMs etc. Len Testa went into some detail on this, which is in a podcast, but summarised here:

I didn't think it closed for a refurb? It closed because there were unforeseen technical issues and Disney are still struggling to fix this (or, to put it another way, they don't want to spend the time and money to properly fix it because they don't think it's worthwhile). Therefore, they've made it 'seasonal' for now - which basically means it's closed and may reopen once Thanksgiving week comes around. It might permanently close if the technical issues aren't fixed.
