Genie Testing: Hollywood Studios Double-Head-to-Head

Yesterday (October 23rd) was a gorgeous Saturday in Hollywood Studios, and it was the last day of our marathon Genie testing plan – we’ve all earned a few days of rest … before we do even more testing! And this was our busiest day of testing yet – we had four different testers in Hollywood Studios, attempting to “do the whole park” before they left for the day. And we had two live streams (on YouTube and Instagram) to talk about what was happening in the afternoon. So what happened and what did we learn? Strap in – there’s a lot to cover!
