That order works for me!
Fastpass: Carousel of Progress (song stuck in my head now, thanks. Very Happy )
Standby: Tiki Room (NOT under new management)
Skip: Country Bear Jamboree

Favorite recent iconic Disney voice actors:
John Ratzenberger (e.g. Hamm, Yeti & PT Flea from Cars)
Josh Gad (e.g. Olaf from Frozen)
Tom Allen (e.g. Buzz from Toy Story)

Watched some Disney opening day videos. Some pre-shows are just skipped & others are cut way back. Haven't seen anything specifically on Muppets but I do love that pre-show.

Just paid off my part of the trip - made sure that park hopper tickets were moved to regular tickets (wasn't automatically done which seems strange) but glad I checked.
Still going back & forth & we're a month out from the trip. Thinking decision may even be taken out of our hands - Hong Kong Disney reopened then reclosed b/c Covid cases increased in the area.

Fast pass: Josh Gad. - Seems he really loves being Olaf, which is nice
Standby: John Ratzenberger
Skip: Tim Allen - Again, at this point there could be no other Buzz, but someone had to be the "skip"!

Disney "live action" movies that could be cool to see redone animated:

The Black Hole
Tron
Honey I Shrunk the Kids

I've reverted back to being dubious about our trip happening as well. I'm not the least bit concerned about the safety in the parks (or the airlines, for that matter). With the precautions in place we're thinking this would likely be the first trip we've ever taken to WDW without coming home with something. Bigger concern is getting there without Florida deciding to force us to quarantine for 2 weeks, or Missouri doing the same when we get home. Really sucks not being able to be excited about going.

Fastpass: Tron (Would definitely benefit from updated CGI)
Standby: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (good family friendly story)
Skip: The Black Hole

Songs you love that don't get enough love (or were overshadowed by other songs in the same movie:

This is Halloween (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Fixed Upper (Frozen)
Under the Sea (The Little Mermaid)

Also running into a school thing with my niece. very up in the air. Opening dates aren't set & plans for reopening have to be submitted to the state by 7/31 & then approved.

Fast pass: Under the Sea - love the song, but it's always "Part if Your World that gets all the love!
Standby: Fixer Upper - this is a good one, but I've never been a huge fan of "Love us an Open Door". Otherwise the soundtrack for Frozen is just super!
Skip: This is Halloween - actually my favorite song if the three, but it does get plenty of play time at MNSSHP!

Princess who'd be most likely to thrive in the "real" world:

Cinderella
Tiana
Rapunzel

It's such a lousy situation. We've got folks who are all equally qualified to claim the title of "expert" in the area of this mess, and yet their recommendations couldn't conflict more. And it's tough to trust any of the numbers being dished out. Seems like every player in this game is pushing an agenda.

Fastpass: Tiana
Standby: Rapunzel
Skip: Cinderella (she'd rally, but it would be tough going for a while)

Unusual weapons -
Frying pan (who knew right?)
Maui's fish hook
Pretty much anything Oogie Boogie used

I've got a nice collection of reusable masks developing in addition to the one time use masks I got for Disney. Pretty diligent wearing them outside my home (although still really only going to grocery store, CVS & mom's since March. Good thing I make a mean margarita!)

Fast pass: Maui's hook - it's magic!
Standby: Anything Oogie Boogie used - also magic
Skip: Frying pan

Ideas that should be developed in Disney Springs:
Tiana's Palace
Ratatouille
Club Mayhem (restaurant/"nightclub" featuring the Muppet's Electric Mayhem)

We've been trying to find the "right" ones for a while now too. I wear a gaiter when necessary around town, but sadly Disney says they are unacceptable.

Fastpass: Club Mayhem!
Standby: Tiana's Palace
Skip: Ratatouille

Area Music -
Around the (former) EPCOT fountain
Crossing bridge from Main St to Frontierland (drums etc)
40s hits walking towards Tower of Terror

Disney also says you have to be stationery while eating & drinking.
Hope they add more tables to accommodate this.
But, have you seen? There's a large air conditioned building in EPCOT normally used for pricey food/wine sit down events. This year, it's being used for a bunch of booths anyone can go to. It's either just before Canada or in between Canada & UK.

Fast pass: Epcot by the fountain (still can't believe they chose to remove that!)
Standby: Hollywood Studios 40's music
Skip: Drums on bridge from Main Street

Queue with some of the best, though largely ignored, attention to detail:

Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
Navi River Journey
The Seas with Nemo and Friends

We've been compiling our wish list of Food and Wine treats. There are some cheese bread things in the Brazil kiosk that sound really good. The frozen apple pie drink as well!

Fastpass: The Seas with Nemo & Friends (you miss so much if you don't look up!)
Standby: Navi River Journey (Pandora is just incredibly detailed)
Skip: Under the Sea (I do enjoy this although I hate when parents don't leave when their kids get obviously terrified.

Disney has gotten very creative with bringing characters to the Parks. Which would be the most fun for you to see?

Merida on her horse (Main St.)
Else & Anna on a carriage ride (World Showcase)
Pixar Promenade (Edna Mode, Sully, Green Army Men, etc at Studios) most being driven in convertible Camaros i I believe.

I'm all over a cheese bread thing. Not so sure about the frozen apple pie drink though. Haven't really started looking at those menus. Probably should!

Fast pass: Merida on Angus (was concerned this was going to go away after the balloon incident)
Standby: Pixar Promenade
Skip: Anna and Elsa in carriage

World showcase pavilion with shops you enjoy most walking through, even if you seldom make a purchase:

France,
Morocco,
Japan

Fastpass: Japan
Standby: Morocco
Skip: France (do love the stores but the scents of all the perfumes can be a bit much for me.


Improve Disney Transportation (let's not worry about covid, costs, liabilities or insurance)

Bike rentals & safe dedicated bike lanes (maybe even covered a bit against the elements) to get to the parks
More monorail lines
More buses so at busiest times wait is 15min or less & the destination is the destination. e.g. No more Animal Kingdom via the water parks!

Fast pass: More Buses!
Standby: More Monorail lines (almost my top pick, but they are prone to breakdowns)
Skip: Bike routes (Pop Century to Magic Kingdom is about 12 miles. That would be brutal in the summer!)


With Magic Kingdom closing at 8:00, which theoretical scenario most appeals to you:

If they were to have an "After Hours" night with even more limited crowds, and the free drinks and packaged snacks

If they were to offer a modified "After Hours" event, again with even more reduced capacity, but with the castle fireworks and free treats (but rides closed)

If they were to offer a modified"After Hours" with the smaller crowds, special night parade and free treats, but no rides.

That order (I love the rides!)

Fastpass: more limited crowds, free drinks & packaged snacks
Standby: more limited crowds, fireworks, free treats, rides closed
Skip: more limited crowd, parafe, free treats, rides closed.

I also prefer fireworks over parades!

Which rides would benefit most from a virtual queue?
Rise of the Resistance (as opposed to trying to get a boarding pass)
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Flight of Passage

Fast Pass: Rise of the Resistance - they need to come up with something better than the boarding pass set up.
Standby: Flight of Passage
Skip: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Attraction that you seem to most frequently (but not on purpose) nod off during:

Carousel of Progress
MuppetVision 3D
Impressions de France

Fastpass: Impressions de France
Standby: Carousel of Progress (when your dream gets a weird soundtrack..)
Skip: Muppets


Studios has added some cool character experiences (esp in Galaxy's Edge). What other,
short character experiences would be fun to add now:

Shorter version of Muppets doing American history (or any other topic quite frankly)
Peter Pan & Captain Hook sword fight on the outside of castle (used to be part of a show I think.)
Mary Poppins singing on roof of the UK pavilion buildings, maybe with Bert or other chimney sweeps.
