Disney releases video of the "Not-a-queue" Dumbo queue

I really like the idea. But, I wonder what it's going to be like in that tent with all those children...

(Edited to add: whoops, hit send too soon...)

It's pretty much exactly what was rumored. Get a pager-like-substance when you enter. Goof around in the enclosed space. Pager buzzes, go get on ride (or, probably, in a very short line).

Yeah, pretty much exactly what we suspected. Essentialy the whole line becomes a VQ wait.

Which makes it super easy to give various levels of access without pissing anyone off. :)

Trust me, it's coming...eventually.

But yeah, this is brilliant and such an obvious evolution of the queue in hindsight.

I wonder what the capacity of the "tent" is. Will there be a real line to get in the virtual line?

What will deter people from getting in line, like a full queue can do?

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea. I just wonder if there will be some unintended consequences.

Yeah, the capacity of that tent sucks. They shouldn't have built it. All they are going to do is use it to sell fast passes and make money.

Is there a more expensive tent I can wait in so I don't have to mingle with the plebes?

There is a tent you can wait in while you wait to get into THE tent.

And I would assume the major deterrent in general has never been the actual line so much as the sign out front that says "The wait is X minutes."

Yo dawg, I heard you like waiting in tents. So I put a tent inside a tent so you can wait in a tent while you wait in a tent.

Tent inception is a dangerous thing...I hope Disney knows what they're getting into.

Excuse me, is this Tent: The Line or Tent: The Ride?

Why am I suddenly reminded of Kurt Vonnegut's "tent rentals" - rented a tent, a tent, a tent... ;~)

OMG! Somebody actually posted a Vonnegut reference! Thank you, sir. I believe you may be part of my wampeter...
