UORs staffing and projections don't come from where I think you think they come from. They come from tickets bought in advance and hotel occupancy percentage (along with partner hotels giving info on how busy they are).They used to handle it in the same manner Universal currently does. Which allows UOR to have actual "slow" times as they aren't as efficient with their real-time staffing and projections (luckily).
Staffing is almost always sufficient at UOR these days and many times they actually have an over abundance of it, but those reasons are for completely different reason than that of crowds. The financial guys who set budgets every year look at how many hours were allocated per certain days and how many they used. If all were not used (say they let people go home early because the job had been completed for the day), then they will give the departments less hours to work with for staffing in the budgets the following year. This particularly pertains to Mardi Gras Concert nights, Grad Bash, HHN, etc.
So in that respect, yes, the way they allocate the budget for staffing is very stupid, but it works it helps TMs more than it hurts because the management team is careful not to lose those budgeted hours.
This is where i'm at. I like pretty much all portions of MM+ except for FP+. I do love being able to get a FP on my phone, but it's the whole "being able to" part that ruins the system for me. The rides I actually want to get a FP for are incredibly hard to get. I do eventually find some FP's, but only after stalking the app for wayyyyyy too long.I actually like MM+ and Magic Bands, I'm just not a fan of the current FP+ system. It's needs to be completely redesigned.
I couldn't care less if Disney made a profit off of it.
