Even if they were to build the 4th Hotel (which we already know won't happen onsite) it still wouldn't prevent guests from walking a very short distance outside the resort. So the ROI is just not there.I wasn’t arguing that. I was saying the new ticket policy will limit attendance in the context of FOUR THEME PARKS in WDW. On any given day, people will decide to go based on prices and availability that are well known in advance. Thus, an artificial limitation.
Guess where the captive audience is from? The on-site hotels. I don’t get why you are not stating the obvious. Disneyland needs the same situation with more on-site hotels, which are the closest to the theme parks. People are more likely to eat at the resort if staying at the resort.
DLR will never be the same as WDW its landlocked with the surrounding areas of Anaheim. Too much would have to happen, and too much money would have to be spent to do it, in order for DLR to get the same "Disney Bubble" as is in WDW. Only then would there be the ROI that is found in WDW.
