    UORs staffing and projections don't come from where I think you think they come from. They come from tickets bought in advance and hotel occupancy percentage (along with partner hotels giving info on how busy they are).

    Staffing is almost always sufficient at UOR these days and many times they actually have an over abundance of it, but those reasons are for completely different reason than that of crowds. The financial guys who set budgets every year look at how many hours were allocated per certain days and how many they used. If all were not used (say they let people go home early because the job had been completed for the day), then they will give the departments less hours to work with for staffing in the budgets the following year. This particularly pertains to Mardi Gras Concert nights, Grad Bash, HHN, etc.

    So in that respect, yes, the way they allocate the budget for staffing is very stupid, but it works it helps TMs more than it hurts because the management team is careful not to lose those budgeted hours.

    This is where i'm at. I like pretty much all portions of MM+ except for FP+. I do love being able to get a FP on my phone, but it's the whole "being able to" part that ruins the system for me. The rides I actually want to get a FP for are incredibly hard to get. I do eventually find some FP's, but only after stalking the app for wayyyyyy too long.

    I just think they need to make fast pass even more limited or behind a paywall. If you have to Book a whole week vacation already, then it becomes impossible for most people in the first place.

    Instead Disney has gone the opposite route by including even more hotels in fast pass plus. At this point it will become even harder to get fast pass for daily visitors.

    Just an update, that man is not in any way related to the crime in question. It would seem the Disney app/site has glitched, as it often does, showing someone else's ride photo on their account — which led them to believe someone was using their Magicband. This poor guy in the photo is completely unrelated to any of this, and the Winter Park PD issued a statement.

    I was actually interviewed for comments on what to do when you lose your Magicband by Fox35 for a piece tonight... After seeing the PD issue the statement I called Fox up to make sure they were killing the story lol. Poor guy.

    If you see anyone still posting this story, please contact the editor, or leave a comment with the link to the tweet from the PD above. I feel so bad for him.
