Not directly, but they are indicators, especially if the actual attendance doesn't meet internal projections. Thus the need for labor cost cutting, if the Magic report is true. Of course, we can only guessLine lengths don’t equate to per caps. The new Disney model is high prices over lower volume. Can’t really use crowd observations to determine their level of concern or success anymore. That day when all the crazy people went to pick up 50th anniversary merch had some of the lowest wait times ever but was probably the parks’ most successful day since COVID.
at what Disney's expectations are (were). We'll know more on what's happening when their quarterly profit/loss report comes in. Just as when it was obvious to all that Disney wasn't meeting their
projections for GESWL back in 2019, at both resorts. Crowd lines are not the bible, but they say a lot.....I don't believe WDW's new business model is for their attractions to be close to walk ons, as
presently occurring. There won't be much market for their Lightening Lane $15 charge and/or bulk charge for the two most popular rides in each park if that remains the case. They're launching this concept in a few days,
they need longer waits to sell the concept. Why pay if there's no wait. So, bottom line, they need more attendance than is presently showing up.
