Thanks so much for your recent review - we are doing this in a few weeks and I'll pass along to DH to ride 7DMT later in the time - I'm bummed about the breakfast disappointment - the last time we did it with PVH we were even picked as "family of the day" and the staff served us our food - we got special pins and had a CM dedicated to helping us! It was such a special experience! We were even walked to a special meet and greet with Ariel and DD was given an Ariel crown! I'm bummed about the chaos you report at Cosmic Rays. Oh well - better to go into EMM knowing this may be the case!We were there this past Tuesday, 7/23. We had just done this back on Memorial Day weekend but were back with a bigger group this time, including many new/limited WDW folks covering several generations, so figured EMM would be a reasonable use of vacation funds to get a jump start on a full MK day.
They seem to have changed things up a bit out front with check-in. Overall it was fine, although far more chaotic and less pleasant than prior experiences.
MK EMM has always really appealed to us, old version and new version. This time, we got in plenty of rides with no issues. We didn’t turn our attention to 7DMT until after 8:30am, did 4 rides with an average pace and no/just a few min waits each. Everything else was a walk on. I do very much appreciate the expanded ride offerings and this part delivered as expected.
Having done the new version twice now, my only real complaint is the breakfast. From my perspective, the breakfast is crowded and chaotic - it’s the opposite of the warm and pleasant experience that used to be offered at PVH. We used to always comment on how the CMs at PVH were so nice and interactive... welcoming, friendly, super helpful. With all due respect to the CMs at Cosmic Rays - it’s mass/fast food service with no heart at all. And the food isn’t even all that good.
When we do this in the future, we will probably make efforts to eat beforehand or bring in bagels and eat on our own as we get a jump on the MK day instead of wasting time at breakfast. Which really pains me to say since one of our original loves of EMM was the breakfast.
Anyway, sorry, just had to that off my chest while still fresh on my mind.
