    That's what OLC deserves for listening to Eisner et all and turning profitable TDL into a TDR. Only saving grace is TDS' greatness.

    Thats for sure and why OLC only ever release combine figures for its parks. All we've been lead to believe is that the Resort gets 25 million guest a year. According to that online report TDL gets 13 million to TDS 12 million a year, But most find those figures hard to believe, as TDL is often a far more crowded park.

    Not quite in the opening years DLP exceeded its estimated annual attendance. Eisner totally messed things up by building too many hotel rooms, thinking he had another WDW on his hands here, and expecting DLP to sell the same volume of merchadise that TDL does. In fact at the time DLP had more rooms than what WDW did. So until the Studios opened the park always reached its targets, attendance wise. In my opinion DLP never failed to live up to its expectations, what let the Resort down was Eisner and Frank Wells and there management decisions at the time. In fact it was probarely more Frank Wells to blame than Eisner as Wells was the business man and handled the finance side of things while Eisner was more of an ideas man who delt with the creative end of things.
