Mr. Niles, I apologize for correcting you in front of everyone but you wrote "Yet, if you can find your way around the walls, most of the rest of Disney's top attractions remain open (Pirates, Indy, Thunder, Subs, etc.) ..."

Obviously what you MEANT to write was "Yet, if you can find your way around the walls, most of the rest of Disney's top attractions remain open (JUNGLE CRUISE, Pirates, Indy, Thunder, Subs, etc.) ..."

Can anyone find a pattern or order in the list of those attractions on the wait time board? I can't find one.

I understand the frustrations that can come with construction, but cutting off the loop of CAAdventure seems tragic.

There is a slight alphabetizing to the board broken across two columns. Why it's not entirely alphabetized, I don't know. But they should never do it by land for those guests that have no clue where the rides are located.

And never have an automated board ranking them by the wait times. That will deter guests and raise irritation levels.

With the exception of the DCA block, I found it easier to get stuff done today than on past trips. I'll take construction walls over crowds any time.

10 minute wait time for Space Mountain! WOW!

I think it's funny that the longest wait time is for Autotopia. That and those spinning Dumbo rides are great examples of the rides that you go there with kids..... thinking we are going to one of the highest quality themed parks there is..... and they have all these options, yet they want to ride the simple spinning up and down ride or the cars on a rail!!.....lol.

Robert,

This time last year when I was unemployed, I made 10 trips to the resort in 6 weeks. DL lost money on me buy not spending a dime at the parks. The AP plus parking paid for itself many times over.

Great photo tour, Robert. Thank you for sharing. Please keep them coming as the pix will get me through the snowy winter we're having in Missouri!

I think I understand now why Disney has a great 3 day ticket deal running through March. Was really tempting but all that construction really is a downer.
