    How many people are going to give it a good try anyway? Worse still, if it doesn't fit, they're either going to try and fit everything into two lockers or pay for a large one.

    This simple locker interaction has at best resulted in taking twice as long as before.

    It's also a problem that can't be fixed by using PSAs.

    Edit: What I'm amazed hasn't been discussed yet is buying a bag that can be securely attached to a railing. This is going to be a security nightmare if it catches on.

    yeah I'm not going to lie... I'd def get two (or more) lockers or get my shoehorn out before I'd pay for a big locker

    Sorry it's the principal.

    "One person per party!" is already ignored. Why not make those locker lines more exciting!!

    I thought I saw someone posting one already...

    Thank goodness that I almost always have a companion with me that doesn't like going on these rides. Designated pack mules are always superior to lockers.

    How is the lockers situation now? Do they still charge for larger lockers? Have they replaced the lockers at Forbidden Journey yet?

    Yes. And the prices for lockers at Volcano Bay went up. $16 now for the largest locker over there.

    This is why I bought that small sling pack with the ultimate warrior tassels in Pandora.

    I've fortunately changed my park packing ways and typically go without a bag now, but I still have a couple of baby bags that would work nicely in the tiny lockers.

    There's this nice Universal branded bag they sell in the parks (blue/grey) that can fit inside the small lockers. They can fit lot's of stuff in them, if anyone is interested.

    When we go to Volcano Bay, my fiancée are able to fit two knapsacks, two pairs of shoes, two changes of clothes, and two phones in the smallest locker.

    They really aren't that small.

    Not sure if this is discussed in the thread...

    I recall a guy in the locker room at FJ trying to open his locker (fingerprint ones) only to be told to pay $3.00. He must have been gone for a long time. I'm wondering if the new free lockers have this payment thing attached to them as well?

    If we rode the new Potter coaster first thing with hardly a wait, and the decided to ride it again for a second time in a row, could we just leave our stuff in the same locker? Or, would we only get dinged something like $3.00....

    Yes, if you hog the locker beyond the "free" time you will need to pay. Usually the free time is very generous. I often do MiB three in a row if the single line is nonexistant. No need to go back to the locker just note the time you have to be back by.

    All the small lockers are free for a certain time depending on the wait time. It tells you when you get the locker. So be back before then and you’re all good.

    I wouldn't "hog" the locker. I'm willing to pay the $3.00 without question. I was just wondering if the new free lockers had this set up as well.

    Thanks! I kind assumed this, but I wasn't sure.

    Didn't mean anything by that, it is why they charge.

    They should do that on cruise ship pool decks! They'd make a fortune LOL

    Yes they do. You’re given a free time of the posted wait plus some extra time. Once you pass it there’s a charge per half hour or hour.

    I always wonder, how do you pay though if you go over? If it is a ride where everything has to go in the locker, then obviously one does not have one's wallet at hand.
