I know that for the most part the massive crowds are attributed to the 50th but is that all there really is to the recent spike in attendance? The 50th came at a perfect time for Disneyland. After the colossal failure of DCA the Parks needed a boost to get up off the ropes. It also came at a perfect time from a current event standpoint. With so many problems going on around the world, 9/11, natural disasters, wars and so on, it seems that a lot of people are looking for a way to escape reality and DL is the perfect place for just that. Plus with the Angels doing so well, the added attention for Anaheim was great for the park as well. It just looks as if everything is going Disneyland’s way, but will it last? When the 50th ends will the attendance drop and interest wane?
