Do you think that those who do future planning for DLR care more about annual passholders and what they want at DLR, or do they care more about travelers and enticing more travelers to come to DLR?
I ask this because of some of the threads on this board. For instance....Some APs are tired of Honey I Shrunk I Shrunk the Audience because that's not something they enjoy time and time again when they frequently visit DLR. Yet, "first-timers" and those who only occasionally go to DLR, really like that attraction (it is popular at DLR and at WDW). This is true of other attractions as well. They aren't ones that APs like to keep going to, but others enjoy when they are there.
One could argue that having such things (attractions that really only interest casual DLR visitors) helps keep the lines shorter at those attractions that the APs visit all the time.
Also, one could argue that the casual DLR visitors are the ones who stay in the hotels, buy the souvenirs, etc....which helps keep the place running.
Obviously, DLR cares about both to some extent for various reasons....but, who do the planners care more about, the APs or the occasional (or one time) traveler to DLR?
