Pardon me if someone already said this, but this Tweet just hit me that suddenly clueless Disney execs who decades ago stopped pushing WDI to design high-capacity attractions now
have a reason to demand higher capacity attractions from WDI!
If they can now sell seats on E Tickets for up to $25 bucks per ride, per person, the bonehead senior execs in TDA and TDO and Burbank suddenly have a reason to demand more available seats on any new ride that gets built. For decades now, even mid-level execs in TDA got free valet parking, free Fastpasses/Maxpasses loaded onto their tickets, or even a VIP Guide to usher them around the park and whisk them on to any ride their adorable little executive children wanted to. Also, reserved folding chairs waiting for them curbside for parades and water shows. So why should execs care that the idiot tourists are waiting 3 hours to ride low-capacity E Tickets that Richard Nunis and Walt Disney never would have allowed to be built for their "guests"???
But now? There's money in every seat on every big E Ticket that gets built! More seats! Higher capacity! Bigger vehicles! Faster dispatch intervals! Double stations! We gotta sell more Individual Lightning Lanes now!!!!
Suddenly, the executives in charge of the parks that never have to wait in line are interested in capacity.
