We’ve been in the parks trying out both the free Genie and paid Genie+ and although all was well at first, we learned pretty quickly that things were going downhill. Check out what we’ve experienced so far today all before noon!
Lots of changes are being made over at Disneyland Resort.
MagicBands will be coming to the resort in 2022, the return of various Disneyland After Dark events has been announced for next year, and Disney Genie+ will be available starting December 8th, 2021. Now, we’ve got an update on the Disability Access Service at Disneyland as well.
Headed to Disneyland Paris soon? There’s been a major update!
Just like the domestic Disney parks, Disneyland Paris has an accessibility program so that disabled guests can experience the attractions around the park. Now, the resort is introducing a new accessibility program, and we’ve got all the details!
One of the ways Disney accommodates guests with special needs is through their Disability Access Service, or DAS for short. Normally, guests would visit Guest Relations in the theme parks in order to sign up for DAS, which allows guests who have difficulty tolerating extended waits in conventional queues the ability to to book return times for rides and attractions.
We learned earlier this year that Disney would be launching new services to make the DAS experience more convenient, including an online chat feature and the ability to pre-register. Starting today, guests looking to add DAS to their upcoming vacation may do so ahead of their trip online, saving valuable time once in the parks!
Disney just shared more details about their new Disney Genie service that will help guests plan their vacations.
The new service will feature things like forecasted future wait times and a personalized itinerary. It also will take over for the FastPass+ and MaxPass systems, and replace them with new paid services. Disney also announced that they are enhancing their Disability Access Service program.
We’ve been bringing you all the updates from Disneyland’s BIG reopening!
After getting ready with details about tickets, Park Passes, and more, we FINALLY got the chance to go in the park and now Disneyland has officially reopened! So far, we’ve shared a look at how Disneyland is handling their lines and their churros (VERY important), and we’ve given you a look at the crowds. Now we’re bringing you an important update on some other parts of the Disneyland parks’ operations.
But, not everything always runs smoothly in Disney World. We’ve seen Disney experience some technical difficulties recently at Spaceship Earth in EPCOT as well with its dining reservation system. Today, it appears Disney is experiencing issues with some of its other systems.
All four Disney World theme parks have finally reopened after their longest closure in history.
We’ve spent the better part of the last two weeks exploring the parks to show you all the changes that have been implemented while guests were away. From seas of social distancing markers to newly installed plexiglass barriers and temperature screening checkpoints, there’s certainly been a lot of new ground-breaking procedures to cover!
We’ve seen select pre-shows be eliminated from line queues and high-touch areas like Dumbo’s Play Area be closed to guests. Many guests were curious about how the Rider Switch process will work under all the new health and safety protocols. [Read more…]
