So that means Disney's strategy is working...having less people there but have them paying more. The hard part is they are probably getting dangerously close to that price point where you start losing your ROI. What's nice for Disney, though, is that they can just roll out more discounts and "free" stuff to convince guests that they can get a good value on their vacation.


It is sort of working... while more money is flowing in, more is also flowing out since it is getting expensive. If you are still having a flat year, even though you take in more money, you are in bad shape.

Gosh it doesn't seem like there are less people in the parks. It has been so crowded on our last few visits!
On a plus note, and totally unrelated to the topic of the buffet, the new Disney Springs area looks really nice!


Part of the crowd issue has been that they are trying to closely match worker levels to crowds, so they may be operating fewer rides that day, fewer workers, larger backlogs of customers, and you suddenly have cascades that result in more lines.
