Meanwhile... in California

For a while, wasn't California's performing better?

One theory I've seen is that there's an A-team for maintenance, but that's all speculation based on one coast's ride seemingly having a stretch of good days while the opposite coast's seemingly has a stretch of bad days.

Seems like at one point during construction before the delay was announced I stumbled on a reddit page or something saying that some of the issues they discovered in Cali they were able address earlier in the construction process in FL. I don't really believe anything online but it kind of lines up with how FL opened first even though Cali was under construction longer and makes me wonder if there are any significant differences in the two systems because of how the construction process went. Probably not but you never know (and we probably never will).

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Or there's billions, possibly trillions, of lines of code all working and interacting simultaneously with video effects, practical effects, sound effects, animatronics, etc, and sometimes they get confused and force a breakdown. That's probably more likely. Disney is pushing the processors running this beast to the known limit. There's bound to be hiccups. You can't push the envelope without screwing a few things up along the way.

:lol: Speaking of lines of code f*cking everything up.

It's being reported that an app issue allowed all of the people practicing for their upcoming Disney trips to actually secure boarding groups without actually being in the park or even having a ticket. This obviously means that a much larger percentage of people who were actually in the park walked away empty handed and guest services lines are apparently pretty huge this morning. I definitely feel for them and the cast members today.

You should have no issue getting on as the boarding groups are littered with people all around the world today that will never actually show up at the ride. :lol:

^ Hopefully they get this corrected pretty quickly. It'll be interesting to see how quickly they fly through boarding groups today if a chunk of people aren't actually there.

Yup.

Obviously there's no way to predict what percentage of people were actually outside the park. One would think it would be relatively low in comparison to the number of people who were but I guess you never know. If they really fly through the groups we'll know why.

They had 51 regular groups today and they're just 13 away from that already.
