They admitted that attendance was down during quarterly earnings reports. Most of the "crowd tracker" Web sites have reported far lower numbers than usual for most of the summer (although they base their data on wait times, since actual attendance isn't public).I keep hearing how crowds are down at Disneyland and the bosses are panicking. This may be a dumb question but is there evidence that attendance is down? I understand there isn't the crazy crowding many people feared. I also understand that GE doesn't seem to be the draw Disney wanted. But is it possible that attendance is similar to previous years, but the additional capacity from GE is spreading the crowds more? Thereby making the park seem less crowded?
Asked another way, is the problem fewer people, or no increase of people?
Things got up to average during the peak summer weeks in late July, but have otherwise been low - sometimes dramatically so.
