You know what's funny?
DLR is a fickle mistress...I can buy off on the first week and numbers being down because everyone was scared off by the crowds.. Well, sort of... Why didn't this happen at Harry Potter in Universal? When has it ever happened before where a park builds something huge and no one shows after the first day? It doesn't happen. Even Pandora at DAK, a few years later, still has longer lines than STGE (2 months out) from what I've been hearing.
Even after that first week, when it was well known that the parks were empty the numbers still didn't pick up. That, to me, is telling. You can argue, "Well, a lot of them are AP holders so they're just waiting.." Hold on, I thought SWGE was HUGE and there was no way it could fail!!
