    on the $99 special. A poster on another site kind of summed it up nicely when he complained ,'Heh, I'm going to pay a total $897 for my $798 season pass plus one day. No way. I'm not crazy".

    Don't make me guffaw this early in the morning Ryan *puts monocle back into eye*

    I think you have an interesting point, Falcon is a people eater, and the land is gigantic

    Plus, they've gone the extra route of opening up pathways and expanding everything to relieve stress on previously bottle necked areas

    In the end, it’s far better that Disney over prepared then under. They could have done less block outs, had crowds up the hoo ha, and no one would be happy.

    Not in Disney’s eyes. They would much rather have an overcrowded park full of angry people than an empty park. If each one bought a drink and a snack, that would still be a lot of money. Why else would they still be offering monthly payments on all of their passes?

    Yep. They're in the business to make a profit, the bigger the better.

    They'd rather have the most amount of money being spent. It doesn't matter if the crowds are big or small, $$$ spent is the crucial thing. Ideally, if the same money was being spent and they could choose between quiet or busy, I'm sure they would should quiet so that they can have less staff and less trains running for lower maintenance.

    I just wonder, if things don't turn around soon, will heads roll for botching this? Especially if the east coast has similar issues...

    I remember when the My Magic program didn't produce the windfall profits Disney & Iger expected, all of the top Executives behind the program were gone within two years.

    Does anyone have something happening in regards of the outcome of their flight with the Falcon? How did the land/castmember react in their results? I haven't read anything and it was something unique and I was wondering how they would do it.

    Ouch. I feel for the cast members. Imagine thinking you were gonna work all these hours because the resort would be swamped and now you find out instead they are gonna start cutting back.

    It seems there's lot of people thinking OMG when they see that crazy price, and waiting for a less expensive time to attend, if ever.

    Not to mention the fact that the new hotness in town isn't truly complete.

    Another thing to consider is that, for quite a few years now, not only has DL had Star Tours, but they’ve also had Hyperspace Mountain as a Star Wats ride.

    Hell, to this day, both are still there, which means there’s more Star Wars attractions in TL than in SWGE right now.
