Beautifully put!I would definitely be considered a tourist, since I travel from Chicago to visit Disneyland. I certainly don't care what the other guy pays. I'm just grateful that at his time in my life, I can vacation at Disneyland. It is fun for me, and everyone deserves a little more fun in their life. We all have our limits as to what we can afford to spend to entertain ourselves. I guess the gripe is that monthly payments make it affordable for more people to entertain themselves at Disneyland, and therefore the parks are more crowded.
I'm not one to analyze the finer points behind Disney's motives. All I know is that at this time in my life, Disneyland is affordable to me. I don't begrudge it being affordable to the other guests.
