New Spiderman Meet & Greet Queuing System via app
« on: November 24, 2017, 05:03:41 PM »
From ED92 on Twitter:

Starting Wednesday next week, Guests will have to book a time (from 10am) via third party app "Lineberty" to meet Spiderman:

Looks like a more updated version of the Moana meet trial. COuld be a decent idea, we had to wait ages for Spiderman and the queuing area was really dull for the kids.

They're installing free wifi in the parks. The not having a smartphone to use the app part I'm curious to know how it'll be.

Mixed feelings. Wifi will need to work well. I know everyone carries their phones now but i actually prefered not to cos it meant hubby was just playing on his phone all the time.
Having said that last time we met spidey there was no disabled access. They said the 10 person queue would be about 30 minutes so hubby stood in it while we stood at the side. An hour and a half later we finally met spidey. Having an actual time would be really helpful....but how far in advance can you book? Will be interesting to awe how it works out

The feedback from the Moana trial was people liked the idea but the technology should be more modern.

I suspect if this proves to be a success and popular Disney will develop this for their own app but obviously it's quicker to use an existing one for a trial.

Tbh I hope this is the start of Paris catching up with its US counterparts are regards technology - booking restaurants and fastpasses online would be far easier than the system they have now!

could be useful if it works but they need to rename the app. its such a terrible pun I had to read it several times before I got it; was starting to wonder who Berty was

I got to try this new system on Wednesday and honestly apart from the fact that I had to download the app first it worked great! I selected the meet and greet in the app and was told that I was in a virtual queue, and that it would be my turn in a little under two hours. I was then able to wander the studios getting a bunch of other things done in that time, at which point the app told me it was my turn and I went to the location. The cast members outside checked my screen to see that it was indeed my turn, and then I went straight on into the building where I only had to wait a few seconds before meeting Spidey, which turned out to be one of my all time best meet and greets to boot!

It's a great system, and I hope Disneyland Paris expand it to cover more things!

I'm sure they'll incorporate this in their app if the feedback from this trial seems positive - after all, happier customers who are not queuing and are potentially elsewhere spending money is a win win for them!
