The Sunday Scandal

The trouble starts with the popularity of Sunday and the way Disney’s annual passes are structured in China.

The Dubious Online Reservation System

Annual pass-holders have already paid entry for an entire year, and our money has already been collected. So in a normal world, the amount of value we got from the pass would be entirely in our hands.

.. you’d be wrong.

While every other day acts normally in regards to following the six-day rule, Sunday behaves strangely every week.

There’s too much smoke for there to be no fire..

The evidence is piled high at this point that shows Disney is blocking access to annual pass-holders on Sundays in favour of guests that are paying for one time tickets.
They’re blocking access by having the website act strangely during booking periods and pretending that tickets were somehow sold out while the website was bugging out.
