Glad to be a test subject

Since they've never tried it for even a day with just a standby line it's impossible to state that it would not work. Like others I think they should and it'll still be busy for awhile but then it will become more like FoP. Yes, long lines but if you want to wait you'll get on.The challenge is the ride can only carry a set number of guests each day even when it works perfectly. The demand for the ride is higher than its capacity it can offer even if it functions perfectly from park open to close.
This change of allowing a standby line still would not work as they would need to close the standby line after x number of guests to ensure they could ride.
It’s not about what type of line, it’s about supply and demand and the demand is always higher than the supply.
Not overlooked but that's just been it's own issues at times and in reality, though abuse takes place, it's a tiny fraction compared to normal visits.I think a factor that’s being overlooked is that with a standby queue there might be more abuse of the DAS system. I could easily see someone lying about the need for it to avoid a 5+ hour line- rush one member of the party straight to the attraction when it opens and get a return time…
Unfortunately there are people who are going to take advantage of anything they can to avoid waiting in line.
