ehhh that sounds more like a glitch with the fp+ system in parks than the website itself. (website has it’s own set of issues) unless the entire system was having issues today (i’m off today so I have no idea if it was or not)
We (well, a groovy Guest Relations cast member who was at the Tomorrowland FP+ kiosks) figured out the problem today after there were more FastPass problems. More on that (as well as the day in general) under the cut:
I’ve decided I’m not going to stay up until the video uploads — I’ll just let it run overnight and turn off the computer tomorrow morning. Still going to caption it before I make it public anyway.
I just changed my 9:20am FastPass for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to 10:15am — it’s 1:30am now and I may want that extra hour of sleep. Plus, with Extra Magic Hours for Disney hotel guests, the park is open until 1:00am, so it’s gonna be a LONG day. But I also anticipate it being an awesome day (and I don’t anticipate awesome days very often, so that’s saying something).
Sadly I don’t get to use a cell phone in the parks — I think Sptepdad never forgave me for getting his wet on Splash Mountain at Disneyland last year (I got more drenched than I’ve ever gotten on it and there was no dry pocket that it could have been in). So for those hoping to meet up, sadly the only way to reach me is tumblr (or email, for those who have it — if you don’t have that and want it let me know and I’ll provide it as long as you’re not a stranger to me).
But now I’m off to bed. The energy from the dinner I had 4½ hours ago is leaving and I need my beauty sleep (more than most).
Wow, what a day.
Ah, Walt Disney World. Where a “quick trip” to go get dinner takes four hours. But hooray! Nachos at Planet Hollywood were delicious (and very filling).
All checked in and in the room — now off to get some food! We got up at 5:00 this morning to get to the airport and haven’t eaten yet.
The sad part is now my mom’s upset with the check-in staff. Three trips ago we got an “extra magic” surprise upgrade to a suite as just a random thing that the staff did to be extra nice. Now she expects it every trip and gets upset when it doesn’t happen. Then she asked for a closer room (we’re pretty far back from the main building), and the cast member said those rooms are more expensive, and the “standard room” that we paid for is in the back.
How do you tell your own mom that when you were a cast member, you hated when guests acted like she’s acting?
Anyway, I’m off to eat.
OK, gonna try to sleep through the TV. Early start tomorrow, followed by something like 5½ hours on a plane.
Well, we’re off to a smashing start for the vacation. Nothing like anger and yelling to start off a family vacation on the right foot.
Today’s good news: After six days since my last mail tracking update on some DVD-Roms I’d ordered from Amazon (they left the east coast on the 10th and then disappeared from the radar), today they appeared in my mailbox.
Currently burning things to discs so I can then delete them from my hard drive and have more space available for the pics/videos I plan to take at Walt Disney World (gotta get that one last video of Maelstrom before it closes forever next month).
My first computer had a 2GB hard drive and I thought it was amazing at the time. Now 250GB isn’t enough.
