I was just noticing on the ridemax web site that they say 3 fastpass machines at DLR (just DL?) are not on the network, one of them being Star Tours ... anyone know the other two?

I think Grizzly Rapid Run is off the network and I hear Roger Rabbit was off, too...but not positive

Ya those are the two. I don't think Star Tours has any fast pass right now but I could be wrong about that.

Yeah, we need to get that "sample plan" updated...

The current set of disconnected FP attractions are Roger Rabbit and GRR. (The software knows this, the sample is just a bit out of date.)

ok, so kinda off subject, but i don't get that whole ridemax thing. when i go to the park, i go to enjoy everything around me and to just go w/the flow...not to be on a "schedule". does it really work, anyway?
i don't know...it just seems too planned out for me, and i'm more on the spontaneous side. guess i'll never be using it! :)

There are those we like to be scheduled so they can maximize there time. These are the same people who run around the park using one of Birnbaums or UOG touring plans.

But you are right, it is not for everyone.

We subscribed to ridemax for the first time before our trip this year. I think that ridemax is great if you only have, say, 2 or 3 days in the park. We did not end up using the schedules because we had 6 days to get everything done.

I'm with you. Spontaneity is fun. In order to be "Spontaneous" on a Disneyland trip and get to experience alot of attractions and shows, you DO have to do some thinking before you go into the park. I used Ridemax to get a handle on what the wait time curve looked like for different rides in the park during this busy time of year. Armed with this, and a practical knowledge of attraction capacity/loading time, we were able to make "Spontaneous" decisions on what to do, but still avoid lines longer than 15 minutes.

BTW, Mark, the ridemax program was really cool and proved to be a help in our planning. It would be great if you folks added a feature to the program so that that it could easily be used to look at single attraction's wait times as they progress through the day.

How do you find theses things out? Do you have a team of people that are constantly going to DLR?

I will be going from the 14th thru the 19th this month...do you think Ride Max would be a help during this time period?? Thanks!! :D

I had seen in a post that DL and DCA are not networked.
Is this true?
thanks

Yes, it's true. You can have simultaneous FastPasses from Disneyland and DCA.

It's definitely true. I once had 3 different Fastpasses inside Disney... it's a great strategy. I beat the lines all day long...
