That's why I would argue that my pass isn't subsidized. I regularly spend $100 per day when I go to Disney on food and beverage. I'm also buying gifts and souvenirs on a regular basis; since I attend year-round, I'm more compelled to buy something that I recognize as new or seasonal. I definitely spent more inside the park over the course of a year than I spent on my pass.
And even though I had the Deluxe (upgrading to Premium next week for renewal for solo trips when my roommate isn't coming with his Premium),you wouldn't catch me anywhere near the park on a busy day, so don't worry about me taking up valuable room.
They must have been truly dedicated to their goals to walk through those gates every day during the summer months . . .
