    To avoid waiting you have to get early and wait? Isn’t that still waiting?

      the only hack is the author

    Yes! She still waited 1.5 hours- probably more by the time the cast member walked them over. And hour before the park opens plus the walking time plus an additional 30 minute wait. This is not a hack…. you waited way too long! Also, I’ve been lucky enough to use the virtual queue a few times before it ended. In June and September it worked great. When you received the boarding group notification it was literally walk on. In November, we walked over when we received the boarding group notification and ended up still waiting in line 45 minutes. I’m sure this is what we can expect with the lightening lane once Disney Genie is launched in California. I’m all for paying to play but it better be worth it! I’m not paying and additional $15 per person to wait 30-45 minutes.

    I’m hoping that Genie Plus would be a pass to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and the Royal Hall, when the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique becomes available for makeovers again and when the Royal Hall becomes available for meet and greets with Ariel, Snow White and Cinderella again, which could be this spring, when COVID-19 is endemic.

    Get to the park early. Stand and wait. Get let in, stand and wait. Led to the ride, stand, and wait in the actual line. If the hack is to stand and wait at multiple places as well as have to get up very early to get to the park before it opens. I will stick to sleep and standing in one line when they tell me an estimated line time that works for me. I got in the line early this week they said 110 minutes. I was on in 60. The hack waited for 90 plus with the hack, and I did 60 just winging it.

    You need to study what a HACK is. Arriving early to be at the front of the line isn’t a hack.

      Also, Cast members do NOT “walk you onto the attraction”. Once the rope drops, guests do run, and they far outpace any cast members (who aren’t walking to the attraction anyway). The only cast members are the ones already at the attraction entrance, and again, they do NOT “walk you on”. Sounds like someone who has never been to Disneyland.

        What’s described is nothing more that a variation on a “hurry up and wait” situation. The hoops you jump through and the distractions may make it seem otherwise but there’s nothing much different concerning the actual total wait time.
        It also sounds like the writer of this article is someone who has hardly ever written, at least hardly ever written accurately.

        1. Brandon P.

          Agreed. I suspect it was just a paid placement and the “article” serves only to drive views and likes on the Tik Tok.

    Real solution, wait till within 30 minutes of park closure and get in line. They move a lot more people through at a higher rate.
