What do you think about the changes that the Disney theme parks announced this week?
In case you missed it, the Disneyland Resort announced several new policies as part of its "Project Stardust," to clear more guest space in its parks in anticipation of the even-larger crowds it expects to descend upon Disneyland when its new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land opens on May 31. And many of the new restrictions will be going into effect at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, too.
Here's the recap:
Let's put these changes up for a vote — not that we can make any difference at this point, but it might be nice to get some numbers to summarize the fan reaction instead of relying on the emotional venting many of us have read online.
We'll start with the decision to make all Disney theme parks in the United States, plus Disney Springs and Downtown Disney, smoke free, starting May 1.
Then let's take on the decision to limit strollers to 31 inches in width, down from the current (often unenforced) 36 inches, and to enforce a ban on all wagons in the park, including those that can be pushed like strollers.
Finally, let's talk about Disneyland's decision to eliminate standby and create an in-park virtual queue for entry into Galaxy's Edge after it lifts the requirement for advance reservations to get into the land. The reservations policy will be in effect between May 31 and June 23 at Disneyland, while the virtual queue starts June 24. This will be the only way to get into the Star Wars land. There will be no standby queue to get into the land, as Disney offers on its Fastpass attractions. (Walt Disney World's land opens August 29 and will not have the reservation requirement.)
You are welcome to discuss these questions in the comments, but I also would like to ask... if you could order Disney to make one more policy change to make life better for its guest and cast, what would it be?
