I think it's possibly something more than just people waiting for Galaxy's Edge. I've been wondering for the past few years when the higher prices and cutbacks would scare away some guests. It's hardly that simple, but I think Disney has pushed increased prices while cutting costs (as we saw with the longer lines due to Ops cuts in January). Galaxy's Edge will still draw huge crowds, but that doesn't mean the decisions that Disney has made will be good for the resort long-term.
As obscene as this is (I can list about five other, more effective, entertainment-centric cuts for AK), I still find this to hit at a solid number two on my list of the worst coming cuts, both announced and unannounced.
Exactly. You’d think Aug-Sept. has never been the slow season before. But it’s more likely people delaying vacations until after SW:GE is open.
Africa has fine entertainment, but I wish I could just enjoy Harambe just once in a while without some sort of loud music and big crowds. Cutting half would be an actual improvement.(I can list about five other, more effective, entertainment-centric cuts for AK)
What is with all these cuts going on at Walt Disney World this month?
Numbers are down more than usual.Exactly. You’d think Aug-Sept. has never been the slow season before. But it’s more likely people delaying vacations until after SW:GE is open.
Ah, so that's why there are four thousand of them but not two shamans.I work with a casting director that brings in dance grouos/performers useing a government-subsidized work thing. Disney casting hires all the actss for harambe through this company useing all foreign performers. This entertainment is actually strangely enough government-subsidized so I doubt you'd be seeing any of that African performers cut they're cheaper to pay for labor wise versus an American.
Disney has pushed the envelope so much with their price increases and tapping any and every possible revenue stream that a backlash is inevitable.
I know I'm not that ideal customer, but I already go less than I did five or even 10 years ago. I know several people who used to go once a year who go every two or three now.
I hate this stupid company so much. And yet they own me. It’s pathetic.
I read that they are also cutting the citizens of Hollywood at DHS and also Citizens of Main Street at MK.. is that correct?Cuts are across the board. They aren’t singling our Animal Kingdom. All non revenue generating business units are being mandated to cut operating expenses.
