It's my opinion that the wrong people are running the parks. I agree with your assessment that "it happens", you're not wrong.I don’t think it’s a question of the wrong people running Parks. Projections just aren’t an exact science and involve myriad assumptions. I don’t expect any company or the best management to get them right every time. They need to adjust staffing with crowds and projections — that’s the only thing that makes sense in this industry.
The issue lies into managerial decisions that got us to this point. They overly marketed the addition of two more minor attractions. They decided to follow trends instead of set them by charging for parking at their hotels, something they've never done before. It's not surprising that the numbers aren't up to par this fall, when you look at the work to boost guest spending. I think if they had done a few things differently over the past couple of years, the numbers would have met expectations.
