Was hoping it would be after our Oct trip. Now, easier access to HS, SWGE EEMH for folks staying at Pop, AoA, and CBR...….huge resorts. Was hoping that the easier access that will provide to HS would be delayed....until after our trip.....oh well. I'm looking forward to trying them,

Interesting timing on this news as yesterday Epcot came crashing to a halt with "system glitches" following a brief but heavy t-storm cell. Most rides went to "Temporarily Closed" for a very long period (more than an hour?) after the storm had passed. The App also had trouble dealing with FP+ under the crush of so many FP reservations turning into multi-experience FP. Grinding halt.

[✔️] Shelter-a-storm at the Epcot Member Lounge
In other news: We were safe, comfortable and "well fed" in the Member Lounge. I noticed the snack baskets were offered quite frequently during the storm. I can now check this "to do" from my list; I've enjoyed watching a Florida Summer Storm from the glass pyramid. Yippie!

That would actually be cool. I'll have to "book that experience" for our August trip.

Wondering what the first evacuation story will be like...imagine being in the air for an hour due to technical issues or nature. I wonder how many people will turn into claustrophobic’s or agoraphobic’s with this. I have no fear but there is something about being suspended in the air and it being beyond my control that will most probably have me skip this transportation method.
