How long out should people make Universal reservations for the DA opening? Its a little odd a quick check reveals you still have a myriad of choices for where to stay that week on Universal property, including all the Lowes resorts. Maybe the pundits might be correct in predicting it might not be as successful as phase one?
Universal needs to get rolling with its version of Magical Express.

Anyone ever stop and wonder if Disney built two new E-tickets at MK it might mske the park even more crowded than it already is?
Easy solution... Build them at the other parks.

Do you really thing Disney doesn't want to build great attractions because they would be too popular? Yeah, that's been a headache for Universal.

Future reference, far more effective to report a troll for bringing politics up rather than feeding him by responding.
Honestly, I never expected him to be a full blown troll. Just being overdramatic on this.

But, if he was that blatant as the older duck guy, I would have reported him to moderators immediately.

No matter how you slice it, there is not magical <pun intended> fix for increasing capacity other than adding actual capacity. You do so by either putting more people through attraction lines. This can be done by either increasing the number of people in an attraction at any given time (more seats per ride vehicle or more seats in a theater), reducing the amount of time in an attraction (speed up the ride or shorten the show), or... adding more attractions.
Or...(skipped in your dissertation at the whiteboard) getting people to use capacity you already have but is under utilized.

Your examples of reducing showtimes does not help park capacity much because it's not keeping people in the attractions - it works to improve ride counts and # of rides a guest may achieve in a day. The lower wait times help make the attraction attractive... but if the less time a person is in an attraction, the more burden they are on the common parts of the park.

The idea MM means 'not having to build attractions' is a distortion and frankly.. childish response to the real idea of breaking the arms race and trying to improve use of what you have. MM+ is about differentiation and optimization.

If you like that differentiation will be played out over the next years...
 
Even though I think @PhotoDave219 is an a-hole he is correct. You would be amazed at some of the stuff they used to have available for purchase at Property Control. Things that were purchased...and never used. #Velodrome
I would not be amazed by it. My company discovered in excess of 500 printer cartridges in storage that we had purchased. While on vacation, the manager in charge of purchasing those supplies received a FedEx envelope with $400 in travelers checks from the supplier. Had that Fedx envelope arrived while she was at work, it would have taken even longer for the discovery. Turned out she was getting a FedEx envelope every time she put in an order. We ended up selling off the excess inventory of cartridges we never used for pennies on the dollar.

What happened to the purchaser? She get fired?

If that were WDW they would promote them & give them a regular column on the parks blog. But I'm sure no payola ever comes into WDPR

never thought malestrom was loved at all... but survives as one of the few 'rides' in World Showcase.

Not that I think that means Frozen should move in... I wouldn't mind an addition to Norway for it.. but to have it take over the anchor of the pavilion seems a crime to the idea of World Showcase.
I love Maelstrom, and to be honest I think Frozen was a good movie. Good, not overly amazing. With that said, I don't think they should put Frozen in Maelstrom either. They added 3 Caballeros to Gran Fiesta Tour and that seemed a little awkward. Maelstrom seems like a much larger focal point to the Norway pavilion than GFT does to the Mexico Pavilion. Or maybe that's just my thinking. But I feel that the WS pavilions are there to showcase the culture of their respective countries, not Disney films that sort of fit there. I'm not saying "don't put Disney film references in the pavilions", just that I don't think they shouldn't be the focal point.
