Rolling Back My Disney Experience App on iOS

How to roll back your iOS version of the My Disney Experience App
to 4.10.1 (which has change party function for fastpasses as
discussed in Episode 136 of Backside of Magic Podcast).

1. Obtain a copy of iTunes on your computer that is earlier than 12.5.
     a. https://www.lifewire.com/download-every-version-itunes-2000446
     b. You’ll need to remove whatever copy of iTunes is currently running on your
         device.
     c. Once you install the older version of iTunes, you’ll need to go to \Users\[current
         userid]\Music\iTunes and copy the iTunes Library file to somewhere for later
        use. Delete this file from the directory where you found it.
     d. Start iTunes.

2. Follow the directions laid out at this URL.
     a. https://medium.com/@iosight/how-to-legally-download-any-previous-version-of-an-app-store-app-through-itunes-9b45559b8357
     b. The software Version External Identifier for MDE version 4.10.1 is “826052048”
     c. Note that when apps are being downloaded by iTunes, it sometimes took a long
         time for the download to start.

3. In directory \Users\[current user] \Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Mobile Applications you
should see an entry for “Disney World 4.10.1.ipa”

4. Download and install iTools (likely 4.0).

5. Attach whatever iOS device you want to install the app onto to the computer. It should
show up in iTools.
     a. Delete any existing version of MDE from the iOS device.
     b. Use iTools to install Disney World 4.10.1.ipa to the device.

6. Once the app is in place, you can re-install the current version of iTunes on your
computer. You’ll also want to put back the iTunes Library file to where you found it to
restore your iTunes.

Attraction Downtime Data

As discussed in Episode 121, the attraction downtime information provided by Len Testa and the folks at Touring Plans is available here:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=15XcQSF_625UarUcwJ6SDwzP585mFjjJJ

Data format description, courtesy of Len:

The column on the left represent how often the ride experiences a closure in the first hour, last hour, or all day that the park is open. 

Using first-hour Expedition Everest as an example:

  • "Closed" means that on average, it's not running for about 7% of that hour.
  • "None" is the percent of days when we've seen no downtime at all in that hour. 86% is pretty good.
  • "10%" is the percent of days where the downtime exceeds 10% of the hour (i.e., 6 minutes) - 14% of days, or about 1 day per week.
  • "25%" is the percent of days where the downtime exceeds 25% of the hour (i.e., 15 minutes) - 10% of days, or about 3 days a month.
  • "50%" is the percent of days where the downtime exceeds 50% of the hour (i.e., 30 minutes) - 7% of days, or about 1 day every 2 weeks.
The "last" and "All Day" sections are the same thing, but either in the last hour, or over the course of an entire day. Note that Test Track runs for an entire day without downtime ("none") around 20% of the time. So on 80% of days, there's at least one measurable downtime incident.

The green line represents the average attraction in each park. Attractions above the line have worse reliability than average.




121: Anytime FastPass Bonanza

The demise of a formerly-reliable Disney gift card acquisition process, and an examination of historical attraction downtime data plus other information that allows for increased odds of scoring multi-day, multi-park "anytime" FastPasses.

Many thanks to Len Testa and Touring Plans for the attraction downtime data, which can be downloaded here:
