A little something I've been working on that might be useful

In relation to Disney Parks but not specific to a single resort

I like the different colors! Makes it simple to see what's happening :D

Ah, I see what I did. That's what happens when you forget to paste stuff over properly :lol:

It's fixed now. :mrgreen:

For what it's worth, it's supposed to be green if all the parks at the resort are open, gold if some of them are open and red if all of them are closed. Shanghai is set up as a special case, and just shows up gold all the time.
Haha I figured it had to be a small coding glitch because all open gates showing up as red looked weird.

That threw me off a bit as well. I do think having Fahrenheit temperatures as an option would be beneficial for at least the US resorts.

It's on the perpetual todo list. I just used Celsius because that's what we use, and what's used at most of the resorts :P

I do have plans for being able to set certain options on the site (things like temperature units, which parks/resorts it shows, colour schemes etc), but there's quite a bit of other more important stuff ahead of it on the todo list (things like getting the data gathering system working more reliably, showing future dates* (which I have a working prototype for now, and just need to tidy up and put live), and my holiday in Japan in a few weeks time ;))

In other news, I've put a changelog on the site here: http://parkhours.info/changelog/ so you can keep an eye on what's changed recently if you like :)

Andy.

* On the subject of future data, this is going to get slightly annoying. As far as I can remember (I wrote the code for data gathering in November, so excuse any slight mis-remembering), WDW only has the data (in the way I'm collecting them) for the next five days. DLR has hours for longer, and show times for the next five days. DLP only has opening hours, but for the entirety of the current month. Tokyo has data for the next three weeks, and Hong Kong for the next few days. There's no standard for how far ahead they go, so it's going to be a fun mish-mash of when data's available for. As I said above, though, I've got a working prototype for this, so once I've tidied it up (it currently messes up the layout on mobile phones) I'll pop it live. Currently, it only consists of next/previous day buttons on the park pages, but I can fairly easily add it to resort pages and the homepage. At some point, I'll make a calendar-like layout, but that'll have to wait a little while.

Andy, thanks for the updates! Again it's a great site and as time goes on I can't wait to see how it looks after some things are added!

Andy, I love the site, it's really useful.

FWIW I'm going to toss my nickel's worth into the mix. Don't worry about Fahrenheit temperatures. All American kids had to learn about the centigrade scale in their science classes, and with a small amount of effort can locate a conversion calculator online or for their phones if they can't do the quick conversion. Forcing Americans to think about Celsius degrees just equips them better for going to Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, ... well anywhere but Bangladesh. :lol:

Time to think globally, people.

OK, I've now added the necessary bits so you can see future data. You can currently only do this on the park pages, but it does work.

Just for reference, here's how far in the future it works for each park so far:
- Disneyland Resort - Data available for the next five days
- Walt Disney World - Data available for the next five days
- Tokyo Disney Resort - Data available for the next three weeks
- Disneyland Paris - Opening hours available until the end of the current month
- Hong Kong Disneyland - Future data varies, usually two-three days

And today's obscure bug fix: Extra Magic Hours now display properly when the park is open for them (previously, it didn't highlight it properly). Turns out it helps if you get > and < the right way around :lol:

It is awesome! If I may make one suggestion.. you may want to show the temperature in Fahrenheit as well as Celsius.

Yeah, it's on the list of things to do :)

I've not had much time to fiddle with it recently, and I'm not likely to for a few weeks now, since I'm heading to Tokyo next week. I have got a few bits lined up for adding/fixing though :)

Also, you Americans should get with the rest of the world and use Celsius ;) <fx: runs and hides>

:lol: F1gment was telling me she was on the phone with tech support in Romania today and while they were working on her problem, the tech asked how the weather was here. She told him 80 degrees and I was thinking, he must think we are near the gates of Hell for it to be that hot!
