So very true , thank youIt's Disney's decision to aggressively market APs -- over a million and rising. It's Disney's decision to price APs so that when they're fully utilized, a day at Disneyland costs less than the price of a movie ticket. It's Disney's decision to make up the lower AP food and merch revenue by jacking up the prices of day tickets. It's Disney's decision to allow the Park to get packed to insane levels, while cutting back on staffing.
AP holders and day tourists shouldn't be blaming each other for the overcrowding and decline of the Disneyland experience, they should both blame the responsible party: the Disney Corporation. In every one of these threads, APers and tourists end up at each others' throats, while Disney Corp plays both ends against the middle and laughs all the way to the bank. Higher prices for AP tickets, higher prices for day tickets, and bigger crowds. Disney wins, you lose.
