Not really a question for locals with a pass who can go whenever they please, but for those people like me, who have to fly or drive, and pay for lodging etc: what does it take for you to be willing to put in the time and expense to go to Disneyland?
For you local folks who have made, or want to make, the trek to DisneyWorld, the question certainly applies.
Is it time? Do you get the itch every year, every two years, every three years?
Is it a new show? Would a new musical like Aladdin or Finding Nemo be enough of an incentive to take a trip? Would World of Colour be enough?
Is it a new attraction? Would you feel the urge to go just for a minor addition like Monsters Inc, or does it take a full blown E-ticket like Indy, Tower of Terror, or Expedition Everest to get your business?
For me personally, I've been going to one of the two resorts annually since 2006, although that streak could come to an end this year.
I don't need a specific addition to get that desire, but when I think of some of my trips, it was an E-ticket attraction that really made me go from "gee, I'd like to go to Disneyland again" to "Man, I really really want to go, especially since they opened _________".
In 1996 it was to ride Indy, in 2002 it was Pooh's Hunny Hunt, and in 2006 it was Everest.
Would I go again this year? Absolutely, but there's nothing new in WDW calling to me. World of Colour looks amazing, but it's not an attraction. I can safely say that I'll be chomping at the bit to see Carsland in 2012.
