    It is hard to know what they assumed at the outset but they never tried to pause people in the pre show rooms. I just pause and wave people by to enjoy the shows and queue. It is disconcerting that most just wiz right through without stopping to really take it in.

    Yes, we still pause and watch the shows, line be damned. FJ queue is as great as the great ride is.

    The Sorting Hat mentions the compartments as well. I believe the intention was that you put your bags in a locker, and lose items like phones and pocket stuff in the seat compartment.

    The last line of the ride even refers to the compartment. “Now don’t forget to retrieve your stowed belongings, lest you want them confiscated by Mr. Filch”... Although, that also works for the locker.

    My first ride a couple days after Hogsmeade opened I actually used the compartment to put stuff in. I think they were actively helping guests use them back then. But pretty quick reality set in that there’s just not enough time to load items and get everyone seated on a moving platform so they ignore them now.

    Lost my Ray-Bans on FJ in 2012, not risking it again.

    Are you saying that you lost them while they were on your person and now will always use the storage compartment, or that you put them in the compartment and forgot them and now will never do that again?
