I mentioned this in the coronavirus thread.
They started testing this yesterday morning, people started saying they were pilots, it was a mess in the holding room. They went back to cards in the evening
The CM now have to remember the guests in each color, their positions so that it runs smoother, there are also less people in the holding room area since the CM has to keep track of it all
Not an easy time for anyone unfortunately.

FWIW, DW rode this morning and said no cards, they just assigned them a position verbally.

Obviously YMMV since they must be trying different things.

    I hope someone here had some luck actually placing an order at ShopDisney today! I've been fighting the website on multiple devices for more than three hours! I'm shaking a fist at the eBay pirates, that's for sure.

    I've only been able to get onto the queue page which states the site is very busy and not to refresh so you don't lose your place. I stayed on for 30 minutes about an hour ago and never got onto the site.

    I'm so sorry! Keep the faith, and just keep trying!! I was able to get through to preorder Star Wars masks, and also somehow ended up with a Mickey waffle iron? Why do they put random stuff at the bottom of the page!?!? One of my boys saw it while they were looking at the masks, of course. That double decker, 90th anniversary one. Yeah. I don't buy extra appliances - I have a toaster and a slow cooker. And I've haven't been spending ANY extra money on anything unless it was something we need! First splurge, I guess not too bad. And...... Mickey waffles! So that should lift spirits when those sweet babies pop out onto plates. Really missing Disney...........

    Site was such a mess this morning. Managed to back order a Starbucks mug but was too turned off by my experience this morning to even really consider anything else.

    word from Batuu on operational changes
    Both MFSR and RotR will only take one party per pod/vehicle. The entire RotR attraction will be done (no spoilers) so no jumping any element, MFSR they are going to decide if to leave the pre show running while people walk through, so no stopping in that room
    Face shields are required for almost every position now, CM have to be strict on enforcement with guests, examples of people on the spectrum or any other disability will be required to wear a mask or asked to leave , were given in the training this morning
    There will be a relaxation zone (masks off) at SWGE, it is said to oh=hold about 80 people, she's about to walk the land so she'll tell me where this zone will be.
    Most casts that their costume required a hat are now told not to wear it because of the face shield plus mask, might be too uncomfortable, so no officer hats at RotR
    There will be a safety spiel playing through out the park reminding people to wear mask and wash hands
    You can still take pics in the Falcon loading area but with masks on

    As a solo traveler, I'm going to feel so guilty

    I've been wondering about MFSR. With the way the ride system works, and how it's supposed to constantly rotate unless you're loading/unloading, are they going to sanitize the pods?
