    Really? Then why doesn't Disney face the customers that do cost it money? Or train their CMs to handle situations themselves.. or face down customers that are clearly abusing the flexibility the company offers?

    Because they they are RISK ADVERSE... and that includes dealing with changes that put the 'known' money streams at risk.. even if the proposed money streams would be greater.

    Re: Should we go back to the Ticket Book system?

    Could the proposed idea of ticket books actually increase crowds? Not LINES or WAIT TIMES, but the actual crowded feeling within the park? If entrance to the park is lowered significantly (or even eradicated), then people may be more inclined to enter and just hang out, shop, eat, maybe ride a ride or two. I don't think you can base this on the crowds of when ticket books were available before, as people travel much more often now than they did then. I would assume lines/waits for rides would shorten, but there would be more people in the park at a given time. I could be wrong, but this is what I'm picturing!

    The passport system currently available allows people to customize their trip. So many argue that they don't want reserved fastpasses, etc, because they love the flexibility the current system offers. You can do what you want with no schedule to adhere to. The passport allows everyone to do just what they want, whether that be shows, rides, or just soaking up the atmosphere.

    Re: Should we go back to the Ticket Book system?

    New Year's Eve should be an all-day, hard-ticket, special event, if Disney cared about making money.

    But, admission fees would not be eliminated. Admission fees keep rabble-rousers out.
    When CityWalk at Uni first open, there was no parking fee. And it was very crowded, and there were rowdy groups there, which scare away people who spend money. Enter parking fees, and problem solved.

    I don't go to CityWalk because of the parking fee. Too many other options that don't charge.

    Yes, throngs of people, but don't worry, they're just 'sipping' aka loitering.

    Re: Should we go back to the Ticket Book system?

    While the ticket books were a fun way to experience each ride, I don't think it makes much sense in the digital and technologically advanced world we live in. The Park is an experience as a whole and the tickets/passes sold are selling the whole thing, not just a singular ride/attraction.

    Also, I don't feel that making paper ticket books helps the world at large. Save trees, go digital.
