I mean we had #thanksShanghai cuts and all the doom and gloomers came out and said it was the start of the train to Pressler town. And yet it never happened. It passed, the cuts were reverted, and everyone basically forgot about it and moved onto the next topic.That’s what I said at what point.... this summer with the lighter crowds a few cut shows and 1 track on the autopia and limited monorail hours weren’t too big of a deal..... but now more entertainment had been cut.... and then????
And of course we don’t really know what the situation is with maintenance... who can say how many hours have gotten cut in that department?
This too will pass. And if it doesn't, as I said the market will correct it. But you like to play the "what if" game to the extreme. Ok, lets really play it out.
Crowds don't come back, so further cuts across the board at DLR. All entertainment is cut, all shows get cut. All attractions now open 2 hours late and close two hours early. All M&Gs are limited to twice daily with 5 hour waits. All maintenance is put onto yearly cycles now, meaning no more 3rd shift checks of any of the attractions more than once a year. An incident happens like BTMRR and a guest gets killed. CalOSHA gets brought in and its discovered its due to lack of maintenance, there is a very public trial because there is no settling this as the family wants to make an example out of Disney. There is public outcry, Disney is legally forced to bring back all 3rd shift checks of all attractions. All is right with the world again.
Point is even if the extreme happens the market will right everything. Because I didn't even talk about Wall Street. Long before a lot of the above would have happened Disney stock would have taken a huge hit. Iger would have been questioned on why its happening as we live in a 24 news cycle world and they would have corrected all of it. So long story short this is a short term thing that will correct itself out over the course of the next year. Entertainment will come back, as will future projects.
