Problem is that 90+ minute wait isn't from a greater number of people standing in that standby line versus years past, it's a greater number of people (locals with multinight express like myself) using a larger percentage of the houses capacity.Still think they can attempt 1-2 more stage shows + lagoon before doing something drastic like this. Most locals are not getting into a 90+ minute wait for Stranger Things, need to move those bodies elsewhere.
Also with staffing as stretched thin is it is (which I think could be mitigated if they stopped being greedy and paid their employees more) how would they staff these extra shows without having to pull resources from the other places?
And even with more shows, there seems to always be a group that will try to go as much as possible... so do you solve that by limiting the shows to one viewing a night per guests via some ticketing system?
I don't think there is one specific solution, but they have to be proactive and get ahead of this before it hits that cutoff where everyone just moves on and they lose all the good will towards the event.
Unless they have plans to eventually build another land between kidzone and mib they needed to make that into a hub areas with a giant pavilion that the houses back there all come off of. They could also do something like that behind the sound stages to at least pull some of the entrances off the main stretch. They just physically need more space to put people unless they are going to lower their cap for max attendance.
