Payphones

Edited: October 21, 2015, 9:51 PM · Something has recently left Disneyland park, although most people wouldn't notice. There are no longer pay phones at Disneyland Park. The very last set, which were ironically located in Tomorrowland, were recently removed. Pay phones can still be found at DCA, the hotels, Downtown Disney and the parking ramp. While its not a surprise, the inadequate phone coverage at Disneyland should be a bigger concern than removing payphones. While pay phones are largely obsolete, they are still used, especially by international travelers. Also Disney better repaint the sidewalk, or put something else in its place to hide the evidence. Thoughts?

This made me imagine a guest being taken into a darkened room, where a cast member would open a desk drawer of burner phones, Saul Goodman-style. I want to believe that this would happen. :^)

The idea that you have to feed a payphone for 3 minutes at a time is ludicrous. International calls is an entirely different thing. Then again, they don't need to make these phone calls at Disneyland. Disneyland can sell international calling cards and let the guests use them in quiet phone call locations at the main entrance. Maybe charge the guests $10 to rent a phone for 30 minutes for free domestic calling or use a calling card for international calls.
