    Would WWTBAM have been televised at DCA?

    If WWTBAM was still open at DCA, do you guys think they would have televised the show from there for the 50th instead of Disney World?

    I don't think they would have. I think they know that even THAT wouldn't boost DCA's crowds.

    I was wondering that too - always had a crowd when we did it.

    Could it be that the attraction was such that it drew in visitors that were already at DCA anyway, but not good enough to draw people into DCA, and thus no great loss to income yet some savings in operational costs get realized?

    That's a good point. Perhaps also that the show has lost some popularity might be a reason, or maybe they just have other plans in mind for the building.

    and the fact that many of the people who were in top could not accept the hot seat due to being CMs or having been in there recently...

    Re: Would WWTBAM have been televised at DCA?

    From what I understand the place had become a sort of AP lounge, and had gained a big cult following from APs, but not many others went in. I'm guessing APs loved it since the place gave out free pins and other things for getting answers right, didn't it? I dont know though, I'm probably wrong.
    I never went to the attraction, but I kinda wish I did now that it's closed.. Oh well.

    No you're right, the show gave out free pins and prizes (hats, polos, jackets, cruises [for the grand prize]). However, it takes a couple shows to learn how to play the consoles right, so spending half the afternoon at one attraction just doesn't appeal to many visiting families who aren't devoting their time to more than a day at DCA. So that really leaves you with all the repeat people, the AP'ers (for the most part). who didn't have musch else to do at DCA than learn a little trivia and enjoy the afternoon in air conditioning, a half hour at a time. I've seen lots of visitors go into the attraction, but they usually only stay for 1 show at most and then continue their day. I hope that makes sense to you guys.

    And on a side note, I remember hearing before it even opened that the attraction was not to become a permanent addition to DCA (from guest relations).

    They found out that the same hundred APs hit it all the time!
