    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Speaking of which, the Magic Kingdom goes FP+ only January 14, 2014. Bye bye paper FP's.

    I'm betting this is going to be an interesting couple of months for Tour Plans.

    Liberty Square doesn't have bathrooms (cause they wouldn't have had them back then) but has a MyMagic+ service center.

    The final nails for the Legacy paper fastpass this upcoming week.

    First up is DHS, which will go full on FP+ on January 21. Followed by Epcot on January 23rd. Both parks are launching with a custom 2 tier system, picking one attraction from tier one and two attractions from the second tier.

    My Disney Experience/MyMagic+ app revision releaseisimminent. Claim is that it should address MANY of the usability issues.

    The release is for iOS devices. Rumors are that Android will come later this year. iOS users will have at a glance of all your plans on the home screen, the performance is said to be quicker and navigation improved.

    You can find the app when released as an Update to the existing app in the app store.

    Android updates don't usually lag behind iOS very far, but most such updates have been minor. If this is a major rewrite, it could take longer.

    They need to make it FASTER. And they need to make the Wi-Fi more stable in the parks. Not sure an update to the app can fix that.

    I had a friend in the parks this week and it has been spotty and hard to grab from her phone. She was staying at
    ASSports and there were masses of cheerleaders, forever and a day to grab the WiFi and then it moved so slow.
    Her thoughts were 4 cheerleaders per room all trying to grab the WiFi...well not good.

    It was weird how Disney prep'd that press release of Android later this year. Not sure they even knew what they meant 'cause it could have been later this Spring, Summer but Year????

    1.5.4 for Android came out a couple days ago. Same "blah blah" about bug fixes and useability enhancements.

    Funny it doesn't seem any different.

    Seriously does Disney Communication have to be brain dead to be employed in that department these days?
    Who says Android later this year when the reality is later this week........I smell stupid people.

    Love this tweet from a parody former and retired Disney Producer commenting on today's unannounced price hike to an Orlando Sentinel reporter.
