I think they're going to announce a move to a "members only" pricing model, where everyone will be forced to buy some level of Annual Pass to get in.

Silver at $1,000 per year per person, includes entry to one park per day, any day of the year except peak holidays
Gold at $1,300 per year per person, includes entry to multiple parks per day any day except peak holidays, and free parking
Platinum at $1,500 per year per person, includes Gold perks plus waterparks and 3 extra FP+ per day
Diamond at $1,900 per year per person, includes Platinum perks plus $1 drink, $10 CS meals, and 3 additional FP+ per day
Ultimate at $2,300 per year per person, includes Diamond perks plus unlimited FP+ based on availability
Super Ultimate at $2,500 per year per person, includes Ultimate perks plus unlimited PRIORITY FP+

Don't know what the state laws are exactly, but with the increase in convention rooms on property; the increase in the presence of food and wine and alcohol in general at the resort. I would guess that maybe not now but long term they are planning for casinos

That would be financial suicide. You will never see this happen.

Don’t give them any more ideas. They already pick you up by one leg and shake all the money from your pockets. 😉

Disney is already pricing out some less wealthy families, but I think that might be part of the strategy. If your attendance is down 3%, but revenue is up 10%, you get a lot of benefits. Less crowded walkways, shorter wait times, increased guest satisfaction and most importantly to Disney more revenue.

I don’t personally agree with that strategy. I think there will be a tipping point where people will be spending so much on on there stay and tix that the merchant spending will suffer.

I know personally we are going to the parks less (especially WDW). There are just so many places to travel to that, when compared with a Disney vacation, are much more reasonable. Im a huge parks fan and I’m doing that. I imagine that GP fans and families are thinking twice before paying the increasing premium for a Disney vacation.

Buying SeaWorld does nothing but diminish the value of Disney's brand, increases overhead, and invites PR problems they don't need.
I didn't say buy Sea World and run it as Sea World though. Buy it in Orlando, shut it down...move the "theme" to AK or a 5th park on Disney property. Hold onto the valuable land until Uni wants it bad :)

would never happen just thinking way outside the box

The average budget-conscious family who still wants to visit WDW will now have to space their trips further apart and will likely spend less while they are there - and I think that's a larger segment of guests than Disney realizes.

Disney has been hand and hand with the Seminole Indians about keeping out anymore gambling in Florida. So i will say doubtful on this one.
