My reply question is this...
#1- How many think this NEW DISNEY will be the way in the future? I think when all is said and done, Disney will see that Guests are more happy with smaller crowds and no FP+
#2- If THIS is the new way going forward, would you pay MORE for a single park day if there were more manageable crowds? I would pay $150 per day if they could guarantee that there will be smaller crowds and no need for FP+
Having to plan even when to breathe takes a lot of the magic even from just planning a Disney trip! PLANNING use to be just as enjoyable as Park Days, but with FP+, planning became a nightmare! With no FP+, planning just got a little more easier...like it USE TO BE!(in the good 'ol days of '99)
$150 per day? Considering tickets already start at $115 or more, I don’t think that price increase would have any noticeable effect on crowd levels. Tickets would have to go up even higher for that effect. Besides, Disney needs more bodies in the parks. More bodies equals not only more money spent on tickets, but also food, souvenirs, hotel rooms, etc.
