|So a big article in the NYT where the head of WDI and the head of parks and resorts are discussing the program doesn't count as an announcement? Announcing it on the parks blog doesn't count as announcing? Advertising it to your guests in their hotel doesn't count as announcing?|
I see we're attempting to be obtuse here.

It's irrelevant. And EMH day is no different to a normal guest as a day that is slightly more crowded.

Your welcome to your belief. But, all things considered, it isn't a level playing field.
Anyway, I don't have a problem with Disney offering perks for guests staying on property at Disney owned hotels, resorts and DVCs. I do think they should offer the same perk to at least guests staying at Shades of Green.
If the WDW resorts vacancy rates are going up, then Disney needs to sweeten the deal for potential resort guests. That is between Disney and their resort guests and Congess needs to butt out.
I'm not against NextGen. I think it will have some good, clear benefits that most guests will enjoy. But, there are many specific, unanswered questions about the program, and the WDC has not been forthcoming with the truth.

Unless your the guy standing in line at 9:15 am for Soarin with a 3 hour wait time. And all the Fast Passes are for afternoon hours. Meanwhile, the World Showcase doesn't open till 11 am. So, it is not as if there is an entire park to visit at your disposal. Hense the reason why many WDW visitors avoid parks that day with morning EMH.

Lee took it a step further and stated that there has been no "official" announcement, which is true.
It's pretty stupid, IMO, the way that Disney has handled the release of information to the public about this program, but oh well.
<But not the same access.>>
How? Are we not talking about unequal access as a result of the MyMagic+ program?

|If there's fasptasses available for the afternoon hours...get a fastpass for the afternoon hours.|
In EPCOT before WS opens you still have:
Universe of Energy
Living with the Land
Circle of Life
The Seas with Nemo and Friends (ride)
Turtle Talk with Crush
The Seas with Nemo and Friends (pavilion)
Journey Into Imagination
Less than 1/2 of that could get you to 11 AM, which opens up the entirety of WS to keep your time until your fastpass is open.
It's not like you HAVE to wait in a three hour line then. Besides, during the slow season, the line isn't going to get that long. And during the busy seasons, it'll get that long by 9:30 and the fastpasses will still be for the after noon by that time.

The minute the clock strikes 9AM (which is the official opening time), day guests and resort guests have the same exact experience and opportunities in the park. There is no difference. Between 9AM and when the park closes, everyone gets the same treatment.

Hokie please go back and read post 61.
In addition, people with EMH have a more hours in the park than people who don't.

And? The day I went to DCA RSR had a 120 minute wait 15 minutes after the park opened. I don't see any difference.
<<In addition, people with EMH have a more hours in the park than people who don't. >>
But the people who don't get those hours aren't losing anything. They're still getting the same treatment during the normal, posted operating hours.

Apparently you're the one being obtuse here.
