I havenít booked anything else nor have plans to visit right now beyond that. I have been going every 3-4 months for a while now, but I have no desire to do that right now with the crowds and increased costs. Add to it the economic uncertainty of whatís to come, and Iím cutting back. I donít know. Maybe Iím a lone wolf, but Chapekís Disney has failed to impress me and is actually making me want to go less and less. I may switch to renting out my points for a time.

ETA: I actually cancelled a trip in July for MM at HS because it is too hot and crowded for me right now. Cancelling WDW trips isnít normal for me.

I agree with you. We are here now, I did add on 50 more points at GF, but I really don't like Cheapeks disney. The cast members here are all excellent, but the feel is different. Everything cost so much more - genie +, Lightening lane pass, ticket prices, DVC dues. we have alot of points now, and we do stay three weeks in the summer, but - it just seems like I am spending so much more for less. Genie + We purchased it one day, and I will purchase it three more times while we are here, for a total of four pay for FP days. We also took advantage of the evening magic hours (well worth it). We had the weekend before Christmas booked (22nd-26th) in a 1 bedroom at the BCV which I am cancelling. Might come for a long weekend in November, not sure yet.

Severely disappointed but they are only concerned with the bottom line.

The public booing could be a deterrent. Maybe he could invite Roger Goodell to accompany him.
